Release Day: ROYALLY MATCHED by Emma Chase

Author: Emma Chase
Release Date: Feb 21, 2017

Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.
He’s not handling it well.
Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:
Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.
A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.
While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.
The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.
But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.
As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

Sarah stands up and presses her lips against mine. And it’s so unexpected, so surprising—I freeze up. But only for a moment. As her mouth gently moves over mine, I begin to thaw. She’s so fucking soft, her taste so very sweet. The kiss is almost chaste—at least it’s the most chaste I’ve ever had. Unpracticed.
    And yet, it still manages to make my heart pound against my ribs like an animal in a cage.
    “What are you doing?” I whisper, when she pulls back just a little.
    “I’m distracting you.” She looks up at me uncertainly. From behind those ridiculously prim little glasses with those big, dark eyes that could bring me to my knees. “Is it working?”
    My tongue traces my lower lip, craving more of her.
    “I’m not sure. Keep trying—I’ll let you know.”
    She smiles quick and relieved . . . and then she reaches back up, wraps her arms about my neck, and kisses me.
    Her two lips envelop my lower one, then the upper, all eager, pleasing sweetness. My hands find Sarah’s lower back and I pull her in close, tight against me. Slowly, I open my mouth and she mirrors my movement, opening for me. And it’s good. So very, very good.
    It’s like my blood has turned to gasoline, and the touch of her wet, warm tongue is the spark.
    I delve deeper, kiss her harder—more demanding—taking the lead. I cup her head in my hands, holding her still while I plunge and devour. A moan seeps from her lips and I devour that too.
    But then, breathing harshly, I tear my mouth away.
    “Sarah, maybe we shouldn’t. Maybe we should just—”
    “I’m sick of being afraid, Henry. And I’m so tired of being alive . . . but not really living. I’ve wanted this for a long time. I want . . . you.” It’s only then that hesitation dims her eyes. “Do you want me too?”
    I grip her arms. “More than I’ve wanted anything or anyone in my entire life.”
    She takes my hands in hers, lifts them and presses my palms to her breasts. They’re soft and full and absolutely perfect.
    “Show me.”
    Beneath her robe, her bedclothes are paper thin. I trace my thumbs across her nipples, feeling them harden and peak. I want to suck on them until she’s mindless. I want to lick every inch of her skin and watch her flush with desire.
    I wrap my arms around Sarah and lift her right off her feet. With a groan, my mouth is back to hers. Her small pretty hands cup my jaw as I carry her toward the bed. I stop against a wall on the way, knocking a frame sideways, lifting her leg in one hand and wrapping it around my hip so I can thrust against her.
    There’s so much I know—deviant, filthy, lovely moves. And I want to teach her every damn one.

Review: RIVETED by Jay Crownover

Title: Riveted 
Author: Jay Crownover 
Genre: New Adult 
Release Date: February 14th, 2017 

Everyone else in Dixie Carmichael’s life has made falling in love look easy, and now she is ready for her own chance at some of that happily ever after. Which means she’s done pining for the moody, silent former soldier who works with her at the bar that’s become her home away from home. Nope. No more chasing the hot as heck thundercloud of a man and no more waiting for Mr. Right to find her; she’s going hunting for him...even if she knows her heart is stuck on its stupid infatuation with Dash Churchill.

Denver has always been just a pit stop for Church on his way back to rural Mississippi. It was supposed to be simple, uneventful, but nothing could have prepared him for the bubbly, bouncy redhead with doe eyes and endless curves. Now he knows it’s time to get out of Denver, fast. For a man used to living in the shadows, the idea of spending his days in the sun is nothing short of terrifying.

When Dixie and Church find themselves caught up in a homecoming overshadowed with lies and danger, Dixie realizes that while falling in love is easy, loving takes a whole lot more work…especially when Mr. Right thinks he’s all wrong for you. 
Amazon / Kindle  / B&N  

"I waited and waited as good men fell for even better woman, all the while wondering when it would be my turn." 

Ahh...where do I begin with everything that is Riveted?! Jay Crownover never ceases to amaze me with her amazing ability to tell a story and draw you in so much that you never want the story to end. And that was definitely the case with this book. You may never want it to end...but you will never be able to set it down. 

Riveted is the third book in the Saints of Denver series and follows the story of Dixie and Church. These two characters are so different from each other it's like night and day. Dixie is very much an optimist. She likes to think about all the positive things in life and is always smiling. She's a happy person that is just waiting for her chance in love. (Aren't we all?...sigh) 

"Never claimed to be the kind of guy that plays fair, pretty girl." 

Church is anything but the perfect man for Dixie. Though he can't stop himself from looking at her and waiting her. I men...he is a man after all. He knows he totally isn't the man for Dixie. She's sweet, petite but curvy, so soft, and everything that is perfect in the world. 

But they both can't stop the attraction to each other. It's undeniable but they push it off because they know it will never work. He's too serious and intense and is too afraid he will taint her. He can never give her anything more than what he offers all the other ladies. 

"I never wanted to let anyone else in, but every time I give you another piece of the past I feel you there...all the way in." 

Soon though Church finds that he needs a favor from Dixie and kind of a big favor. And he knows she will never say no because she's too sweet. But will she help him out even though she's sweet or will she tell him no because the temptation of being around him is too much? 

"I was like a starving person that was offered a cupcake. I wanted to lick all the frosting off and shove the rest of all the deviousness in my mouth with both hands." 

They are two unlikely pairing that finds themselves desperately needing each other. And I was addicted to each page. These characters will suck you right in and keep you riveted until the very end.

One word.

It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him.

That was seventeen years ago.

I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again.

Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn’t supposed to be there. I should’ve been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in.

This time around, the tables are turned. It’s my decision. Second chances do exist, but I don’t know if we can repair what’s already been broken . . .

But I don't always get what I want.

Whether I like it or not, our lives are intertwined. Trying to keep him out of my heart is futile. He'll find every loophole and embed himself there.

But when you come face to face with your savior, it’s almost impossible to walk away.

"Her joy was my joy. My love was her love. Her pain was my pain. Paige and I were one." 

I read many books a year, many books a month, and many books a week. But each month, each year, each week, there is one book that always sticks with me...one that you can never forget. You can't forget where you were sitting, you can't forget how you felt, and you can't forget how beautiful the story was. One that you recommend to everyone. 
This. Is. The. One. 

Possession is an utterly breathtaking read. Truly. One that you can never forget reading. Every thing about this book, killed me with feels and crushed my emotions. A lot of cupcakes were consumed and a lot of tears were shed while reading. But it's not that the book is just overall sad...cause it's not. It's just so raw and real. That you feel the characters pain. Every inch. 
"Without him there was no color." 

Possession is the first book in the Avenues Ink Series and follows the story of Declan and Paige. Declan suffers from a mild case of schizophrenia and it has destroyed his life. Nothing has been easy for him. He's never felt normal and he knows he never will. Declan used to think he was crazy as a kid because the voices wouldn't stop. He could hear things that other people couldn't and it drove him mad. 

Declan has two strong brothers, a loving mother, and a drunk of a father. His brothers have never failed and always been there for him. Even when Paige left him...breaking his heart forever. But to heal, he loses himself in art. He paints like a mad man. And he's beyond talented. He uses the amazing talents in his brothers tattoo shop...where he is a full time tattoo artist. 

"She was once my ruin, and she could easily rip me apart again, and I think I'd let her." 

Paige has never had an easy life. Though when she was little from the eye, it might look like she is rich, has a beloved family, and goes to a good school. But that was never the case behind closed doors. She was never really happy and never really living until Declan came into her life. Everything begin to change for both of them. 

He opened up a world full of color for her and she had the strength to stop the voices. These two needed each other...they craved each other. Like an artist craves it's never paint stroke. Nothing could have prepared them for what life was about to give them. 

"He was the only one that saw me...the only one." 

Now years later, after serious heartbreak these two are thrust back into each others lives in an impossible way that they may not want. They both tried to move on for so long but now they are realizing they may need each other to survive this thing called life.
