Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole & GIVEAWAY




NEW RELEASE........ 
Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They're sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you'll be begging to enter their circle of friends! All books can be read as stand-alone novels.

Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Hearts. The stories and characters remain the same and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

In HEARTS at SEASIDE… 
Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men. 

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him. 

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the most alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family? 

Hearts at Seaside is the sweet edition of the steamy romance novel Seaside Hearts by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.

My Thoughts…

Sweet with Heat is the perfect description for this book.    Jenna is hooked, for many many years on Pete.    Pete is hooked on Jenna for just as long.    Why haven’t they got together???    Jenna gets shy around Pete leaving him to believe he just might be too much for Jenna to handle.    That sentence cannot be farther from the truth.    They belong together. No doubts.  No questions.  

I loved how Jenna went after a construction worker to make Pete jealous.   That construction worker ended up being sweet, attentive, smart, and almost perfect for Jenna.  The only problem with Charlie is that he wasn’t Pete.    For anyone else he would have been the perfect man.    I liked that Addison Cole did not make Charlie a hunky, brainless, boring guy.   She made him a guy that would be perfect for the Seaside Girls.     All of that being said, I LOVE Pete’s reaction. 

Both Jenna and Pete have known each other for what seems like forever yet there are things that they still have to learn about each other.     Pete’s dad is a functioning alcoholic and he has been keeping that a secret from almost everyone.     Opening up about that to Jenna was a tough scene, which was handled with so much care that I had no doubt that together Jenna and Pete could find the answer to save Pete’s dad and not make it an issue in their relationship.      Jenna’s mom is also a “problem” but more like an embarrassment to Jenna.    Jenna is worried that her mom will show up and embarrass her in front of Pete and the Seaside crew.      By the end of the story I had no worries that they could handle anything thrown at them.


While each book in this series is a standalone story, it is fun to see the characters from previous books make appearance and catch up with what is happening in their lives.    The next book is Amy’s story with Tony and I can’t wait!

I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Read, Write, Love at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 1)
Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he’s come to finish his latest thriller — that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt’s best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt’s as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn’t even know the definition of the word organized.

Leanna’s come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can’t get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she’s just stopping by to say thank you, but the heart-warming afternoon sparks an emotional and unexpectedly sweet ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.

Dreaming at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 2)
Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

Sunsets at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 4)
Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to determine if she is living life to the fullest or missing it altogether.

For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother—and falling in love is not in his plans.

From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused Jamie can think of little else than sweet, smart, and alluring Jessica, and Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie’s business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie’s life—and his heart—upside down. In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

Love's First Kiss by Stacy Claflin



Quiz for readers to pick which book in the kindle world to read: https://sweetgrovebooks.com/quiz/

Love’s Kiss series is part of Melissa Storm’s First Street Church Kindle World that takes place in Sweet Grove, Texas.
Love’s First Kiss will be available July 19, 2017 along with twenty other books in the Kindle World! Love’s Second Kiss will be available in early 2018. Keep an eye out on this page for more details about the books!
About Love’s First Kiss

She’s burdened by guilt and tragedy. He wants to help her, but he has secrets of his own.

Madisyn Steele graduated college with no job lined up and no income of her own. She returned to her childhood home where her wealthy and overbearing father won’t wait for her to get her life in order. He’s continuing his domineering pattern and ruling her life, even going so far as to ignore her wishes by trying to arrange her marriage to Reese Rutherford, a man she despises—just to solidify his business prospects.
Nate Roberts is barely making ends meet. Despite his hardships, he plans to make it on his own and never return to the home he ran from years earlier. He’s begging friends for food the night he has a chance encounter with Madisyn and everything changes. First he’s willing to go back to Sweet Grove and earn an honest wage for her, then he’s ready to chance hauling illegal contraband just to make the kind of money she’s used to.
Madisyn doesn’t care about material things. She only cares about Nate. But her father’s plans and Reese’s schemes threaten the future she and Nate are trying to build. Can they reveal their secrets and work through all the issues keeping them apart, or will they ultimately push each other away?

My Thoughts…

Love’s First Kiss is a great novella.  It is short, fun, and has HEA (happily ever after).    Stacy Claflin put enough detail and background in the few pages of this story to make is amazing.    I got to know two sweet characters, learn about parents that were a tad controlling, and see a HEA happen.   

My favorite part of this story was how strong both Nate and Madisyn were.   They stood up to their parents and friends, went against the grain of society, and most importantly never lost sight of what they both wanted.    They did not take the easy road, but they did take the high road.    They didn’t get petty, didn’t get angry, they just stood tall, kept their pride, and knew what they both wanted.  

I have read a few of the Kindle World Novella’s and find that I look for more.  I like that they have the same setting and some of the same characters.    It is fun that different authors write them and give their takes on life in the towns.   

I would recommend picking up this novella and spending a hour or two with Nate and Madisyn.  

Thank you Stacy Claflin for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Getting a Grip by M.E. Carter RELEASE BLITZ



Title: Getting A Grip
A #MyNewLife Novel
Author: M.E. Carter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 18, 2017



Blurb

This isn’t my life. Okay, it is my life, but not the way I envisioned it would be.

I wasn’t supposed to be a divorced mother of three when I turned the big 4-0.  Sure, I expected the fine lines, gray hairs and left over baby belly.  What I didn’t expect was expanding our family get-togethers by one… my ex-husband’s new child bride.  Ok, ok, she’s not young.  Maybe.

Did I mention this is not the life I planned?

It could always be worse, I know. I’m lucky to have a mother who loves to babysit, a best friend who loves sarcasm, and a new friend by the name of Greg, who is apparently a child whisperer and tells me my eyes are pretty.

Sigh… Greg.

The perfect, Adonis-like God of a man who keeps flirting with me. At least I think he’s flirting with me. It’s been so long, I don’t really know.

Between birthday parties, a few ill-advised bouts with make-up, and a whole slew of gymnastics classes, it’s finally time to take back some control.

So, while my girls learn all about how to grip the bar, I’m going to learn how to get a grip on my life.  And maybe my heart.

Author Bio

Mother, reader, storytellerME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.

Defiance (Heart Lines Series Book 5) by Heather Hildenbrand

Kindle Edition, 330 pages
Expected publication: July 13th 2017

Everything is a lie. 

Sam has spent the last six months sorting through plots against the people she cares for most. Learning who to trust—and who to kill. And just when she thought she had it all figured out, the good guys separated from the bad, her world is upended.

Ea’s vessel has been revealed.

The equinox is coming.

Sam knows it’s up to her to stop what’s coming—and who is bringing it. If she doesn’t, the goddess inside her will take over, erasing what’s left of Sam’s sense of self. In fact, Hina’s already struggling for dominance.

But how can Sam possibly battle evil itself when her heartbreak is so great she can’t even heal Alex when he needs her most? Sam needs time. And time is the one thing she doesn’t have.

Alex is struggling to heal and to help Sam stay grounded. But he’s got his own mystery to solve. A secret about himself and his past that he doesn’t even know exists. Together, they’ll battle demons inside and out.

Alex isn’t who he thinks he is. Sam isn’t the only one who was chosen.

Book 5 in the edge-of-your-seat Heart Lines Series from Heather Hildenbrand.

My Thoughts…
Sometimes a series can get dragged on too long….  The Heart Line Series should go on forever.   This is book 5 in a series that must be read in order and each book is equally amazing.    Heather Hildenbrand is phenomenal.   The characters are fun, entertaining, and wonderful.    I need to know what happens with Sam and Alex.   I am invested in the characters and the storyline. 

Defiance picks up exactly where the last book, Imbalance, left off.     Sam and Alex have been attacked, are running away from EA, and Hina is becoming stronger.  The paranormal aspect is amazing, yet believable.   I like that most of the characters are trying to live a normal life yet have special powers that keep them from truly being normal.     It is also wonderful how much these characters protect each other.    Even when the world is against them they work together to keep everyone safe. 


I love that there is no lap in time between books.    The storyline continues and the books are release in a reasonable timeframe.   This is a series that has to be read in order and I definitely recommend starting with book 1 and moving right along.    The good news is the first 5 are available now so you can binge read them all.    

Thank you Heather Hildenbrand for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere But the Pool by Lisa Scottoline, Francesca Serritella

Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: July 11th 2017 by St. Martin's Press

The bestselling and “perennially hilarious” mother-daughter team is back with a new collection of stories from their real lives, guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. Join Lisa and Francesca as they regret drunk-shopping online, try smell-dating, and explore the freedom of a hiatus from men - a Guyatus. They offer a fresh and funny take on the triumphs and facepalm moments of modern life, showing that when it comes to navigating the crazy world we live in, you’re always your own best lifeguard.

My Thoughts…

I am not a short story collection fan.  I like a storyline, a set of characters, and an ending.      I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere But the Pool changed my mind on everything I thought I needed.   I read this on a plane and caught myself laughing out loud, smiling, and cringing at the stories.     They are told in separate chapters by both Lisa and Francesca.    

There were numerous times that I could relate to what was happening in their lives.    The reactions to different events were so real that I could see myself in their stories.      I found it fun to get a glimpse into the author’s lives and see that they are normal, real, everyday people.      The situations they find themselves in are the same as their readers.    

Reading I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere But the Pool made both Lisa and Francesca seem more like my friends.    I believe both these amazing ladies would fit in perfectly with my friends and family.

Bad Boys After Dark:Carson by Melissa Foster & GIVEAWAY


NEW RELEASE........
Bad Boys After Dark: Carson
(Bad Billionaires After Dark)

Indulge your inner vixen...

Bad Billionaires After Dark are a series of stand-alone hot and sexy romances.

Indulge your inner vixen with these sexy billionaires!

Meet the Bad Boys... Four fiercely loyal, sinfully sexy, uber alpha brothers, about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies.

Second chances really do exist...
As the founder of a multimillion-dollar international security business, Carson Bad exposes secrets for a living. He knows better than to forge relationships built on them. But for years he did just that with his best friend, and secret lover,

Tawny Bishop. She brought a sense of calm and understanding to his life—in and out of the bedroom. Until one fateful night when a knock at the door changed everything. Tawny is no longer a naive college student. She’s a sought-after perfumer living in Paris. She has plenty of resources at her fingertips, and lots of lonely nights to think about the only man she’s ever loved—the one she ran away from all those years ago. She needs to move forward with her life, but how can she when Carson still owns her heart?

Maybe showing up in the middle of the night unannounced isn’t the best route to unraveling the past and figuring out her future, but Tawny has played it safe for ten long years, and it's only made her long for the man she never should have walked away from. Now she's back in Carson’s life, and he’s determined not to make the same mistake twice. If only he knew what that mistake was…

The Bad Boys are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

My Thoughts…

Oh Carson, I have waited for your story to be told.     You were quiet and kept to yourself in the past books and I wanted to see the true you, the strength in you.        I am not surprised at how amazing, sensual, daring, loving, loyal and trusting you are.    

Bad Boy Carson is emotional.     The family is having a fundraiser for leukemia and after an emotional night he sees the love of his life.       The love of his life that he hasn’t seen in years…and she is there for him, to see him, to be with him, and to reconnect with him.    How could that not be emotional?      It was hard and heartbreaking to see him struggle with his need to be with Tawny knowing that she had the power to break his heart again.      There was no doubt that the attraction was there, the love was there but could they trust each other and let each other into their current lives again.       

The Bad Brothers love deeper, love stronger, and love forever.   Carson is no exception to this.    He has loved Tawny since their college days and has never let anyone else take her spot in his heart.   I love this about him.   While he had his fun with other women he wasn’t able to be himself.    He used the other’s to satisfy a need while he knew only one woman would truly accept and complete him. 


If you are looking for steamy, hot, sexy stories this is the series for you.   

I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Meet the Bad Boys... Four fiercely loyal, sinfully sexy, uber alpha brothers, about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies.

Everything's naughtier after dark... 
Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she's researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She's waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action--and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.

Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn't do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.

Amanda thinks she's hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man--until she discovers the man she's made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick's already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction--no strings, no regrets, and for goodness' sake, come Monday, no quitting--the tables turn, and Mick's totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.

Turn Back Time (An Alex Mercer Thriller Book 2) by Stacy Claflin

Kindle Edition, 255 pages
Published June 28th 2017

A dangerous cult disbanded years ago. Now they’re back, and they want revenge.

Alex Mercer spends his spare time operating a blog for missing children—a pastime inspired by his daughter’s recent disappearance. Another relative goes missing. As he follows up on leads coming into his site, the police department is inundated with a rash of missing persons cases. The incidents seem unrelated until evidence ties the cases to a dilapidated apartment building known for its unsavory clientele. Suspicion falls on a disbanded cult. The same cult Alex’s own relatives had managed to escape from and bring down a decade earlier.

The cult leaders, recently released or escaped from prison, reassemble their members and mandate a new mission to capture and kill all those responsible for the breakdown of their community. After another loved one disappears, Alex is ready to rescue the missing people from certain death. But will he get there in time?

Turn Back Time is the second book in a series of exciting standalone novels spun off from the USA Today bestselling Gone Trilogy. If you like heart-pounding suspense, page-turning action, and characters you’ll never forget, then you’ll love Stacy Claflin’s engrossing series. 

My Thoughts….

Turn Back Time brings back some of my favorite Stacy Claflin characters.     Alex, Zoey, Macy, and Luke.    They are no longer teenagers and have lived a heck of a life.    Macy was kidnapped and taken to a cult when she was a teenager.  Luke and Zoey’s daughter was kidnapped also.    Now Luke’s mother has been kidnapped.    It seems this family just can’t get away from the cult.

What I continue to take away from this series is the strength of family.    The character’s families never lose hope, never give up, and never quit hoping for happiness.    They all manage to find happiness with many HUGE bumps in the path.      They also never waver in their support of each other.   In this book Luke’s mother is kidnapped and the rest of the characters and their families never doubt that she will be home safe and work together to find her.    

This is book 2 of the Alex Mercer series, which is part of the Gone series.   I recommend at least reading the Alex Mercer series in order, reading the Gone series will just give you more background on Macy’s history.    

Thank you Stacy Claflin for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
