From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them.

“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.
What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?
***

I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

Review Blitz: ROYALLY ENDOWED by Emma Chase

     
   
Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??
Sexy. As. Hell.
And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.
For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.
To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.
The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.
But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go. * * * 
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.
Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.
But there’s only one woman he wants.
For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.
He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.
But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.
Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

I absolutely adored reading both Royally Screwed and Royally Matched (click the links to see my reviews). When I saw that there was going to be a third book, my first thought was “who could this be about?” After reading the synopsis I was immediately hooked. Who doesn't love a little forbidden romance? The sister to Princess Olivia can’t be with a mere bodyguard or so thinks Queen Lenora.
“Logan winks. And, right there in that dim little coffee shop, he steals a piece of my heart forever.”

Pushed into the royal family by marriage Ellie’s life completely changes. The Prince himself has sent Logan as security detail for his wife’s younger sister. Ellie has had a crush on Logan since she was in high school and he was assigned to watch over her. They've both felt the attraction from the moment their lives were pushed together. But Logan knows that falling for her will completely change the course of his life. A life he’s worked so hard for. He can’t let his feelings get in the way of his job.

"I meant it when I said I would die for her . . . and right now, I feel like I am."

Over the years, Logan and Ellie’s paths continue to cross. Ellie has never been able to let go of that schoolgirl crush. She’s gone through boyfriend after boyfriend but no one compares to the fantasy of Logan St. James. Logan has always made her feel special, something she isn’t used to feeling. Logan enlisted in the military to escape the terrible life he came from. He can’t let one girl take that away from him. He’s watched Ellie grow into a beautiful young woman and when danger at the palace threatens everyone’s lives, whom will he choose to protect?

"Life changes us, with its twists and turns, in ways we don't always see coming. It changes what we want, what we dream, lays blessings in our hands better than anything we could've imagined."

Guys, this book was so much more than I ever imagined. I laughed, I cried, I swooned, I cringed, and most of all I feel in love with this story. Because of their circumstances this is a slow burn romance. But trust me, it’s worth the wait. For anyone who has read the other two books, you will be happy to hear that we get quite a few guest appearances! I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.

"Somebody once told me a slow-burning fire is the hottest – and it must be true. Because Logan and I are a f------ inferno"

   
Ellie
    But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.
    Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.
    My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.
    There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.
    “Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”
    And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.
    I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.
    Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”
    There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.
    And Logan’s watching me again.
    Watching my mouth.
    His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced.     Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.
    I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.
    And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.
    Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.

Review by Brie: FIRE FALLING by Elise Kova


FF eBook Cover as of 7 22sm
Soldier… Sorcerer… Savior… Who is Vhalla Yarl?
Vhalla Yarl marches to war as property of the Solaris Empire. The Emperor counts on her to bring victory, the Senate counts on her death, and the only thing Vhalla can count on is the fight of her life. As she grapples with the ghosts of her past, new challenges in the present threaten to shatter the remnants of her fragile sanity. Will she maintain her humanity? Or will she truly become the Empire’s monster?

"You are not someone to live in darkness or sorrow. You're a light that can shine brighter than the sun."

Okay so "coming soon" ended up being almost a month. This book left me reeling and in such a massive book hangover. I feel like the writing and character development in this second book took leaps and bounds from Elise Kova's debut novel Air Awakens. Air Awakens is definitely one of my top reads this year. In fact, I think this entire series is going to sit in my top 10. Gah, that ending. I can't believe this is happening. It can't be happening! I won't believe it.

"...this will never be easy - for either of us - and I refuse to love you halfway."

There was so much growth for both Vhalla and Aldrik in this book. We got to watch Vhalla gain more control of her powers and become a fighter. No warrior! Not only did I fall even more in love with them, I became insanely attached to many of the side characters. One in particular wormed his way into my heart. I just hope I don't have to see HIS heart get broken in the future.

"War was his area, his art, and his legacy."

I wouldn't allow myself to dive into Earth's End until I wrote this review and let me tell you: It. Was. Torture. Now that it's written, I'm diving in and you will hear back soon. If you haven't started this series yet, I HIGHLY recommend them! I'm dying to know what happens next. PLEASE! If you love fantasy books grab this series. You won't regret it.


"You will march to victory, and it will be won upon your silver wings. But the winds of change you will set free will also shatter that tender hope upon which you fly. You will lose your dark sentry"


perf5.500x8.500.inddHer vengeance. His Vision.
Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.
Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.
When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.
He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.

The Second book in the Loom Saga.

Cvareh returns home to his sky world of Nova with the genius crafter Arianna as his temperamental guest. The mercurial inventor possesses all the Xin family needs to turn the tides of a centuries-old power struggle, but the secrets she harbors must be earned with trust — hard to come by for Ari, especially when it comes to Dragons. On Nova, Ari finds herself closer to exacting vengeance against the traitor who killed everything — and everyone – she once loved. But before Ari can complete her campaign of revenge, the Crimson Court exposes her shadowed past and reveals something even more dangerous sparking between her and Cvareh.

While Nova is embroiled in blood sport and political games, the rebels on Loom prepare for an all-out assault on their Dragon oppressors. Florence unexpectedly finds herself at the forefront of change, as her unique blend of skills — and quick-shooting accuracy — makes her a force to be reckoned with. For the future of her world, she vows vengeance against the Dragons.

Before the rebellion can rise, though, the Guilds must fall.
