Cover Reveal: SOCIETY OF WITCHES by Elise Kova and Lynn Larsh



We are so excited to share with you the cover and synopsis for SOCIETY OF WISHES. Book 1 in a new urban-fantasty, new adult romance series, co-authored by Elise Kova and Lynn Larsh.


Title: Society of Wishes (Wish Quartet, #1)
Publication Date: January 29, 2018
Author: Elise Kova
Publisher: Silver Wing Press
Genre(s): New-Adult, Urban Fantasy, Romance

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

Josephina Espinosa makes her living as a hacker-for-hire in the Lone Star Republic, a remnant of the fractured U.S.A. That is, until the day she and her best friend are gunned down in a government raid.

With her dying breath, Jo uses magical lore passed down from her grandmother to summon a wish-granter. Her wish? To save her friend’s life. Except wishes have costs, and for Jo, the price is the erasure of her entire mortal existence.

Now, as the most recent addition to the mysterious Society of Wishes, Jo must form a new “life” alongside the seven other members, one of which being her savior himself. Living as an occupant of the Society’s lavish mansion should be quite the perk, but while it is furnished with everything its inhabitants could possibly need, it lacks one thing—freedom.

Her otherworldly identity crisis takes a backseat, however, when Jo learns that the friend she sacrificed everything for is headed down the same path to ruin. Jumping in head-first, Jo uses her newfound magical abilities to protect him, only to realize that the ripples of her actions have far-reaching consequences. When the Society’s aloof leader Snow decides to give her a taste of his own ancient magic, Jo discovers that there are threads woven into the tapestry of her new reality that reach far beyond the wishes she is now required to grant. Ones that, if tugged on, could mean the unraveling of her existence itself.

Release Day: TORRID LITTLE AFFAIR by Kendall Ryan

       

34948639

The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

Release Day + Book Review: ROOMIES by Christina Lauren


Title: Roomies 
Author: Christina Lauren 
Release Date: December 5th, 2017 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively readable as in New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren’s (Beautiful Bastard, Dating You / Hating You) new romance.

Marriages of convenience are so...inconvenient. 

For months Holland Bakker has invented excuses to descend into the subway station near her apartment, drawn to the captivating music performed by her street musician crush. Lacking the nerve to actually talk to the gorgeous stranger, fate steps in one night in the form of a drunken attacker. Calvin Mcloughlin rescues her, but quickly disappears when the police start asking questions.

Using the only resource she has to pay the brilliant musician back, Holland gets Calvin an audition with her uncle, Broadway’s hottest musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until his reason for disappearing earlier becomes clear: he’s in the country illegally, his student visa having expired years ago.

Seeing that her uncle needs Calvin as much as Calvin needs him, a wild idea takes hold of her. Impulsively, she marries the Irishman, her infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves and Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway—in the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting—will Holland and Calvin to realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?





"Is the plan that I come home with you tonight?" Heat spreads up my neck and over my cheeks. "I think so." 

It's no secret that Christina Lauren is one of the greatest. When they sit down and put their heads together...they write a masterpiece. They are one of my favorites and I don't see that changing anytime soon. When I saw that they were taking me back to their romantic comedy roots, I knew that this book was going to be something good. 

"Now it's just us- me and Calvin. There's nowhere to hide and no one to hide behind." 

Holland Bakker doesn't have the job she wants and never really thought she would be selling shirts before Broadway plays. But she loves her Uncle and she would do just about anything for him. But one thing she doesn't need to do is to take the subway everyday but yet she does just to get a peek at Calvin Mcloughlin. He's a musician and she can't stop listening to him. She is in awe of his music and his talent. But one drunken night leads to an almost horrendous accident but Calvin saves her, then quickly disappears. 

She can't stop thinking about him and why he would just pull a disappearing act. Her uncle soon finds himself in hot water with his play but when Holland suggest Calvin from the subway nobody thinks this is going to pan out but when it does, and they find out his visa has expired...they are back in the gutter. 

Holland quickly comes up with a terrible, awful, wonderful idea that will help everyone out but she knows it's a dangerous idea. Holland and Calvin soon find each other falling for each other in ways they never thought possible. But both of them are harboring secrets that could hurt them both and end what they have taken time to built. 

"One can only assume he's wearing boxers, because from where I'm standing- and with his lower half currently obscured by the counter- he looks like he's eating cereal wearing nothing but his wedding ring. Help." 

I loved this book like something fierce. I devoured it, ate it, consumed it, and devoured it some more. I smiled, laughed, cried, and cheered ring side with these characters. This is Christina Lauren at their best and you don't want to miss.

Double Review: SHOW ME THE WAY by A. L. Jackson



Title: Show Me the Way 
Author: A. L. Jackson 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: October 1st, 2017 

The first sexy, captivating, stand-alone novel in the brand-new FIGHT FOR ME series from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson . . . 

Rex Gunner. As bitter as he is beautiful. 

The owner of the largest construction company in Gingham Lakes has been burned one too many times. His wife leaving him to raise their daughter was the last blow this single dad could take. The only woman he’ll let into his heart is his little girl. 

Rynna Dayne. As vulnerable as she is tempting. 

She ran from Gingham Lakes when she was seventeen. She swore to herself she would never return. Then her grandmother passed away and left her the deed to the diner that she once loved. 

When Rex meets his new neighbor, he knows he’s in trouble. 

She’s gorgeous and sweet and everything he can’t trust.

Until she becomes the one thing he can’t resist. 

One kiss sends them tumbling toward ecstasy. 

But in a town this size, pasts are bound to collide. Caught in a web of lies, betrayal, and disloyalty, Rex must make a choice. 

Will he hide behind his walls or will he take the chance . . .




"Had no idea how to give her what was so clearly building up between us. A savage storm. Brutal." 

I probably say this a lot but you can never and I mean NEVER go wrong with an A. L. Jackson book. She is a master at story telling and her characters simply take my breath away. Nobody writes sorrow, pain, beauty, redemption, and passion like this lady. 

"Just looking at her had every inch of me tightening. In need. In want. In this mad kind of love." 

Show Me the Way follows the story of Gunner and Rynna. Gunner has had a crap go at life. His wife just up and left him, leaving their little girl alone with him. Gunner is a single dad and though it's turned out to be the toughest job he's ever had... it's also the best thing that has ever happened to him. 

"You changed everything the day you walked into my life. You are my hearts second chance." 

Rynna ran from Gingham Lakes and her past a long ago but now she can't run...and has to return due to her grandmothers untimely death. Her grandmother was her favorite person in the world and she can't let her down. But Ry never expected to run into a grumpy, sexy, single father living across the street. Gunner is the sexiest man that she's ever laid eyes on and she can't deny the attraction that she has for him. 

But she knows he lives a very troubled life and she want's nothing more than to help him but he won't let her get close enough. These two have never had an easy life...they've had to fight for what they want and push their way through life. Fate has thrown them into each other lives, or is it someone else. Will these two deny the attraction they have for one another or will they give in and lead each other through their pain? 
"If you aren't laughing, you're crying. Now, which would you rather be doing?"

AL Jackson is one of my all time favorite romance authors and I was so excited to dive into her brand new Fight for Me series! I'm going to start this review by saying, she delivered. This book was everything I hoped for and more. I went into SHOW ME THE WAY knowing basically nothing about it except the fact that I was certain I would love it.

"All moments matter. We just rarely know how important they are until the chance to act on them has already passed."

Every time I start reading a book by AL Jackson I'm reminded how beautiful her writing is. I'm not sure how it's possible for me to ever forget this fact, but it happens time and again. I fell deeply and irrevocably head over heels for Rex Gunner. He was pure perfection. Seeing how Rex interacted with his daughter is soooo swoony. He's genuine but more than a little broken after the way his wife left him. So when Rynna comes into his life he wants nothing to do with her. But life has other plans and she is continually forced into his life. Rynna fled her home town more than a decade ago with no desire to ever return. When danger and lust push them, they reach a breaking point. Can they both overcome the events of their pasts that left them scared?

"Don't let anyone chase you from what belongs to you"

I have absolutely adored every thing I've read by this author. I can't wait to read more from this series. If you haven't picked this one up yet, I can't recommend it enough. And if you have any you're dying for the next release, you can pick up her Novella: HUNT ME DOWN now! A.L. Jackson's writing has a beautifully rhythmic and smooth pace to it. If you've never read one of her books I urge you to do so immediately! Happy Reading

Broderick Wolfe is a man accustomed to getting what he wants. He will hunt it, fight for it, and make it his own.
