From the Inside Out is a brand new


 4 part serial from

Here are the AMAZING covers for Scorned and 


Jealousy - Part 1 & 2 of the serial



            Part 1: Scorned - Aug 18        Part 2: Jealousy - Sept 8







We shared a love that regulated every heartbeat and every breath we took. It was all encompassing. I thought our love could withstand time and anything thrown our way.

I was wrong. So wrong.

I used to be happy. I used to be Juliette Weston when Dylan Somers filled my life with promises of love and a happy ever after. But when he took my heart and broke it into a million pieces, I became someone else entirely. In one afternoon, I lost my soul mate. I lost everything I knew myself to be.

Three years later, the man who destroyed me is back.

To assuage his guilt? To finish the job? It doesn’t matter… I won’t let him this time. I’m stronger. I’ve moved on. He won’t affect me.

This is a story of love and betrayal. Pain and loss. Happiness and fate. It’s about finding your true destiny.

This is our story.

And it’s not for the faint of heart.

  About No Weddings (Release Date Sep 8): Award-winning author Kat Bastion teams with her husband, Stone Bastion, in this first book in the No Weddings Series about Cade Michaelson, a successful man with his sights set on a new venture in business, and Hannah Martin, the woman who makes it personal. I think I have my act together as a successful bar owner, my master’s degree within reach, and a list of no-strings-attached women warming my bed. Turns out, I don’t. Hannah believes she has safeguarded her wounded heart by shunning men and focusing on her new baking business. The thing is, she hasn’t. When my three sisters and I start a new event-planning business with Hannah as our baker, I have no idea how my life is about to change. As Hannah and I work closely together, the attraction between us becomes irresistible. And complicated. I’ve promised my sisters I wouldn’t mix business with pleasure. But I’ve never been one to follow the rules. Add on Goodreads    

2-OneFuneral_Cover

About One Funeral (Release Date Sep 29): The stakes climb higher in this second book in the No Weddings Series for Hannah Martin, a woman restrained by her past, and Cade Michaelson, the man who could help set her free. I’m drawn to Cade as he charms his way into more of my life and offers me something I truly haven’t ever had: a friend. Yet his humor, patience, and drop-dead sexiness take my breath away, and I know my heart is at risk. I want to move forward but am terrified I can’t. Cade seems to have it together from his own devastating heartache. His subtle actions, however, suggest a different story. And even though he says he wants more, I wonder if he’s able to trust in our developing relationship. As we navigate through our tangled feelings, we vow to take it slow. Yet no matter how careful we try to be, things between us intensify—and there’s nothing we can do, or want to do, to stop it. But the biggest question remains: Is chemistry enough to move beyond the past and toward a future together? Add on Goodreads    

3-TwoBM_Cover

About Two Bar Mitzvahs (Release Date Oct 20): Summer heats up in this third book in the No Weddings Series, where Cade Michaelson strives to balance his and Hannah Martin’s new relationship with the growing demands of his financial success. Waiting for Hannah has been the best and worst kind of torture. Now I can claim her as mine. We believe we’re done with the past and can move forward together. Hannah grows stronger than ever as she trusts in me—trusts in us. And when obstacles appear, she shows a surprising fierceness that rivals my own. However, all is not perfect in paradise. Things get chaotic while I try to juggle multiple businesses, an ex from hell, and a girlfriend I’d do anything to keep. And in the middle of the whirlwind, I recklessly think I can handle everything. But when all the madness is over, will I have everything I want—will I still have Hannah? Add on Goodreads  
4-ThreeXMas_Cover

  About Three Christmases (Release Date Nov 17): As the holiday season approaches in this fourth book in the No Weddings Series, Cade Michaelson strives to be better at balancing work and love, and Hannah Martin’s growing ability to trust is put to the test. Lust and friendship brought us together, but with the increasing demands of my two businesses, Hannah’s thriving bakery, and our successful event-planning company, stability becomes my focus. Then a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity takes me to the West Coast, and everything goes into a tailspin. Laughter, love, and excitement fill our lives, but Cade refuses to settle into the wonderful bliss we’ve found—he wants spectacular fireworks and an unshakable foundation. Driven like no one I’ve ever met, Cade insists a dream job across the country will be better for our future together, but I worry about whether we can survive the present apart. When intimate time diminishes…and lives get more hectic… Will a little bit of faith be all that it takes? Or will the sacrifice to get there be too great? Add on Goodreads   




  Exclusive Excerpt: Thank you for reading and sharing the first exclusive excerpt of No Weddings, where Cade and Hannah experience a heated moment…   When we reached her door, she slammed into it, and with my hand attached to her death grip, I crashed into her. Breaking free of her hold, I tempered my impact by shooting my arms up onto the doorframe. She stilled, her key halfway into the lock. We were pressed against each other in a compromising position, and it struck us both. I dropped my head down, resting my head against the windowpane, unable to move—only able to breathe. And her delicate scent wafted up. Tropical. Enticing. I closed my eyes, fighting the urge to stay. And losing. She swallowed. I heard it. I felt her turn around and drop the platter to her side as it brushed my hip. I opened my eyes to find hers closed as she pressed her soft body up against me. She inhaled deeply, and her body shuddered. “Cade, I…” She opened her greenish eyes with those little flecks of gold in them. Uncertainty washed across her expression. I exhaled but didn’t move. This was so off-limits. But the fact that I couldn’t have her suddenly made me want her all the more. “Fuck.” I pulled away. Shook my head. Cold air flooded between us, breaking the spell we’d both fallen under when we hadn’t been paying attention. Hannah looked surprised, like she couldn’t believe I’d rejected her like that. “I can’t, Hannah.” She nodded furiously, like she agreed. But I could tell as her expression hardened and she turned to slide the key into the lock with a shaking hand that she struggled with her emotions. I put my hands on her shoulders, stopping her from pushing in through the now-open door. “Hannah, it’s not you. Trust me, it’s not. I’m…” Fighting my attraction had been difficult enough. Knowing she also felt the pull made our working together dangerous. I needed her help to keep our dealings purely professional. Her voice trembled. “You want me? You feel it too? I…” Ah, fuck. Hearing her repeat my thoughts made this excruciating. Figures. The first girl who challenged my mind, in addition to physically attracting me, would be the one I couldn’t pursue. Damned “no doing the help” rule. I exhaled, counting to five. “Yeah, but I…we…can’t. Not only would it be a really bad idea, based on past experience, I promised my sisters. It’s as good as a sworn blood oath.” I ground out the words, shocked I could form coherent sentences with my blood flooding much farther south from my brain cells. I clenched my fists, digging my nails into my palms while I eased back, putting a good couple of feet between us. In desperation, I vowed to maintain said safe minimum distance at all times. Slowly, she turned to face me again. Confident, proud, a woman now in charge of herself, body and mind, Hannah nodded. “I promise too. No matter our attraction, we keep it strictly business.” I blew out a fast breath through tight lips. “Good. With you and me both working on that, it’ll be a lot easier.” A slow smile crept onto her face, a devilish gleam sparking in her eyes. “Oh? You mean if I didn’t play along, things could get difficult for you?” My face fell. She wouldn’t. Would she? She placed a palm on my chest, smiling sweetly. “It’s okay, Cade. I promise not to tease you…too much.”

BOOK REVIEW: Enchanted Heart by Mindy Ruiz

Enchanted Heart

About ENCHANTED HEART:

Cassandra Vera never ever breaks the rules.

Ever!

She’s also had a nonexistent social life since her best friend moved to Vegas. Armed with a new set of resolutions, the promise of a hot date, and her adoptive parents out of town, Cassandra agrees an overnight road trip to Las Vegas to celebrate her birthday is the perfect way to ring in the New Year. After all, it's Vegas, the city where secrets are meant to stay hidden.  Little does Cassandra know the secrets of her own past are buried there, as well.

 In the shadows of the glitz and gaudy lights of Vegas lies a power struggle centuries old. One wrong step and Cassandra could destroy the delicate web of secrets.  Now an enemy she never knew existed is after her and the one boy who may be the missing piece to the puzzle —and her heart— is the one person she can’t afford to trust.

Review:

**This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review**

I really REALLY loved this book. And I really didn't expect to love it as much as I did! Such an original concept. Very fun characters, dialogue, world building, and romantic times. So many feels! 

Enchanted Heart is about a young girl named Cassandra Vera. She sneaks off to Las Vegas because her best friend recently moved there. Her parents are unaware of her plans and while she's in Vegas, she meets some new faces and discovers a new world that not only involves her, but she's at the center of it.

Let me just say, this story was so good! So mysterious, so much fun! I would like to say that it was action-packed because that's what it felt like, but there was really no "action" in it. It was just a very fast-paced read.

Throughout the entire book, Ruiz is dropping clues like breadcrumbs regarding what's going on and who/what/why/how everyone is. Cassie, our main character, is never fully let in on what she is a part of, which was extremely frustrating, but also very rewarding at the same time. I think this is a smart move, especially from a reading perspective. You find out what's happening with Cassie at the same time that she does. The reader knows nothing ahead of time.

I'm not going to go into detail about the world, because I think it's something the reader needs to experience on his/her own. But I will say that it's a unique world. Ruiz does a great job of developing it, but by the end of the book, it's quite obvious that she's only scratched the surface. There's so much more to be revealed. And it's a great setup for the rest of the books in the series.

Characters. These were such great characters. Cassie was very enjoyable. She was smart, loyal, brave but extremely stubborn. Usually that stubbornness would bother me in a character, but Cassie made it endearing for me. You quickly realize the type of person that she is and you either love that about her or you hate it. I am one of the people who loved it. She was a breath of fresh air for me. Her love interest, A.J? Can I have a slice of him, please? He was a great character as well. They fed off of each other's teasing and flirting. And they both developed in a way that was so believeable to me.

The supporting characters were just as great, even the ones that annoyed me to NO end -- Malory. Olivia was fun, Isaac intrigued me, EVERYONE just felt necessary throughout this book. And that's hard to do, in my opinion. It's hard to do well.

Overall, I really loved this book. Ruiz did a great job of making me care about who these characters were and what they were all going through. I eagerly await the next installment!

Rating: 5/5 stars!

Boomerang Launch Party + Giveaway

Boomerang Review + Launch Party + Q&A with the Authors and Giveaway!

4 stars 

What happens when you wake up one morning with no recollection of what happened the night before or of where you are? Oh! And did I mention your clothes are scattered all over the place and there is a very gorgeous and very naked guy right next to you?
Well this is what happened to Mia, the night before she was to start her internship at Boomerang, at online dating service where she is hoping to land a position in the marketing department.
Mia has no time to try and piece the night together, she needs to get ready and as presentable as possible to make it to work on time (arriving late on your first day probably not the best impression after all), she would figure out this whole mess, with … what’s his name? Yup! She couldn’t even remember his name.
Well later turns out to be very soon when one-night-stand guy, Ethan, is also starting at Boomerang, for the same internship, going for the exact same job Mia is… oh boy!
Ethan can’t afford distractions of any kind, he really needs this job, swimming in debt and with no savings he must do his best to impress the boss and get hired.
The attraction between Mia and Ethan is undeniable though, and things are usually even more tempting when they tell you they are not allowed. On their first day Ethan and Mia, who pretend they have never met each other before, are told that fraternization in the office is completely off limits, Oooops! Too late for that… but both Mia and Ethan are sure they can be professional and forget about that torrid night they seem to remember nothing about, especially because their job depends on it.
Well easier said than done….

Boomerang is fun, hot and impossible to put down.  You can’t help falling in love with the characters, and the story itself.  There are some hilarious moments that literally had me laughing out loud, and some super hot scenes that had me blushing. Overall though what I liked the most was the ever present fact that no matter how much one can try to fight your feelings, eventually you just got to give in to them, and weigh how much are you willing to give up for love.

Boomerang was light and easy to read, a feel good book. I grabbed it one afternoon, made myself a pitcher of passion fruit tea and breezed through it.  Love Love loved it! Can’t wait for the next 2 books!




Q&A with Veronica and Lorin + Boomerang Launch Party 



We had the opportunity to conduct a brief Q&A with Veronica and Lorin and would love to share it with you guys.


Veronica -
Using a pen name for Boomerang, was it only a decision based on wanting to do something different that encompassed both you and Lorin, or did you feel you had to separate this series from what you publish under your name, since it’s YA and aimed to a younger crowd?

All of those reasons actually came into the decision-making. It definitely felt right to separate this series from my work under my own name because 1) Lorin wrote half of it, and 2) this is very different than my own writing. What Lorin and I created together is its own special thing and it deserved its own special name!

Lorin -
Tell us a bit about how it's been different to be on the other side of the editing
process. Being an editor yourself was it different to hand over your work to
someone else? Do you enjoy writing more than editing or vice-versa?

Great question! I actually love editing and writing equally, especially when the editing involves a deep story development component—helping writers build amazing stories from the ground up. It’s just a different way to express my creativity and storytelling mojo.
Still, getting to create one’s own character, express a specific voice on the page, construct sharp scenes that move a reader somewhere: that’s pretty unbeatable!
In terms of what it felt like to be on the other side of the editing process, I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve been working professionally as a writer for a long time, which means I’ve had a lot of awesome editors along the way. I can be as thorny about criticism as the next writer, but ultimately, I know a good editor has the goal of bringing out the best in a project, so I was happy to have our editor’s guidance, as well as Veronica’s feedback, too!

Veronica -
What are the aspects you enjoy most in collaborating? And could you tell us a bit about the writing process between you and Lorin?

We had a lot of fun together! I've loved the humor and heart Lorin brings to the table. As for the writing process, we switch off points-of-view, so Lorin will write one scene, then I take the next, and we trade back and forth.

Veronica and Lorin-
What can you tell us about Rebound?

Lorin: Well, the story revolves around Adam Blackwood and...a character who made an appearance in BOOMERANG (I’m sure it’s out on the ‘net somewhere;
I just like to pretend it’s a secret for now). Let’s just say they’re thrown into close proximity and, like Mia and Ethan, absolutely should keep their hands off one another! It’s a little more intense than Boomerang in some ways, a little more nail-biting, but, we hope, just as fun and satisfying!

Veronica: Agree on all counts. It felt the same in many ways, but very different in
others. REBOUND skewed a little darker, but I love it just as much.

Veronica and Lorin held their launch party at Inkwoods Bookstore in Tampa and being in Miami well I just had to go! Veronica Rossi is one of my favorite authors, if you haven’t checked out her YA series Under the Never Sky then you must!

Happy Release Day: Before You by Amber Hart

beforeyou-releaseday

We're so excited to celebrate the release of BEFORE YOU by Amber Hart from Kensington Teen! This multicultural romance has us swooning!

 

Before You revised

ABOUT BEFORE YOU

Some say love is deadly. Some say love is beautiful. I say it is both.

Faith Watters spent her junior year traveling the world, studying in exquisite places, before returning to Oviedo High School. From the outside her life is picture-perfect. Captain of the dance team. Popular. Happy. Too bad it’s all a lie.

It will haunt me. It will claim me. It will shatter me. And I don't care.

Eighteen-year-old Diego Alvarez hates his new life in the States, but staying in Cuba is not an option. Covered in tattoos and scars, Diego doesn't stand a chance of fitting in. Nor does he want to. His only concern is staying hidden from his past—a past, which if it were to surface, would cost him everything. Including his life.

At Oviedo High School, it seems that Faith Watters and Diego Alvarez do not belong together. But fate is as tricky as it is lovely. Freedom with no restraint is what they long for. What they get is something different entirely.

Love—it will ruin you and save you, both.

 

EXCERPT:

“Hi, I’m Faith Watters.”
Those are the first words I speak to the new Cuban guy in the front office. He grimaces. He’ll be a tough one. I can handle it, though. He’s not the first.
I can’t help but notice that he looks a lot like a model from the neck up—eyes the color of oak, strong bone structure. Everywhere else, he looks a lot like a criminal. Chiseled, scarred body … I wonder for a second about the meaning behind the tattoos scratched into his arms.
One thing’s clear. He’s dangerous.
And he’s beautiful.
“I’ll show you to your classes,” I announce.
I’m one of the peer helpers at our school. It’s not my favorite thing to do, but it counts as a class. Basically I spend the first two days with new students, introducing them around and answering their questions. Some parents with kids new to the school voluntarily sign their students up, but it’s only mandatory for the international students, of which we have a lot. Mostly Latinos.
            This Cuban guy towers over me. I’m five six. Not tall. Not short. Just average. Average is good.
This guy’s not average. Not even a little bit. He must be over six feet.
            I glance up at him, kind of like I do when I’m searching for the moon in a sea of darkness.
“Looks like you have math first. I’ll walk you there,” I offer.
            “No thanks, chica. I can handle it.”
            “It’s no problem,” I say, leading the way.
            He tries to snatch his schedule from my hands, but I move too fast.
            “Why don’t we start with your name?” I suggest.
            I already know his name. Plus some. Diego Alvarez. Eighteen years old. Moved from Cuba two weeks ago. Only child. No previous school records. I read it in his bio. I want to hear him say it.
            “You got some kinda control issues or somethin’?” he asks harshly, voice slightly accented.
            “You got some kind of social issues or somethin’?” I fire back, holding my stance. I won’t let him intimidate me, though I’ll admit, he’s hot. Too bad he has a nasty attitude.
            The side of his lip twitches. “No. I just don’t mix with your type,” he answers.
            “My type?”
            “That’s what I said.”
            “You don’t even know my type.” No one does. Well, except Melissa.
            He chuckles humorlessly. “Sure I do. Head cheerleader? Date the football player? Daddy’s little girl who gets everything she wants?” He leans closer to whisper. “Probably a virgin.”
            My cheeks burn hot. “I’m not a cheerleader,” I say through clamped teeth.
            “Whatever,” he says. “Are you gonna give me my schedule or not?”
            “Not,” I answer. “But you can feel free to follow me to your first class.”
            He steps in front of me, intimately close. “Listen, chica, nobody tells me what to do.”
            I shrug. “Fine, suit yourself. It’s your life. But if you want to attend this school, it’s mandatory for me to show you to your classes for two days.”
            His eyes narrow. “Who says I want to attend this school?”
            I take the last step toward him, closing the gap between us. When we were little, Melissa and I used to collect glass bottles. Whenever we accumulated twenty, we’d break them on the concrete. When the glass shattered, the slivered pieces made a breathtaking prism of light.
I cut myself on the glass by accident once. It was painful, but worth it. The beauty was worth it. 



It’s funny how the bottle was never as beautiful as when it was broken.

His Reverie RDL Banner

We are so excited to bring you the Release Day Launch for Monica Murphy's HIS REVERIE!! HIS REVERIE is a Young Adult Contemporary Romance you will not want to miss!

  His Reverie

iBooks | Kobo | Barnes & Noble Amazon 

ABOUT HIS REVERIE: I knew from the moment I first saw her she was the one. The only girl I could ever want. The only girl I could ever love. She is light. I am darkness. She is innocent. I’ve done too much. She is good. I am bad. She is my every dream. I should be her every nightmare. We come from different worlds. She’s…perfect. And I’m… Not. Somehow she wants me anyway. So we’ll grasp at what we can. We’re going to make this summer count. She’s my secret. And I’m hers. The problem with secrets is they never last for long. And when others discover we’re together, they’ll do whatever it takes to keep us apart. All I know is: I won’t let them. Because Reverie Hale? She’s mine. 

HIS REVERIE Excerpt: “Thirsty?” I jump at the sound of a soft female voice, my hand jerking so the hose splashes me right in the face. Muttering a curse, I drop the hose and reach out blindly, wrenching the faucet off with one hand as I swipe at my eyes with the back of the other. I hear the girl laugh and I whirl around, fully prepared to find some bratty preteen Hale daughter mocking me. But she’s not a preteen. Not even close. More like around my age. She’s tall and slender, her long blonde hair falling far past bared tan shoulders. She’s wearing some sort of sundress or whatever you call it and she’s pretty much covered since it hits just above her knees though her arms are exposed since the dress is sleeveless. The sun catches her just right though, shining through the thin fabric of her skirt so I can see through it. My gaze drops and all I can see is long, long legs through the shadowy fabric. Damn. Those sexy legs are endless. She clears her throat, like she knows exactly where I’m looking and what I’m thinking and I jerk my gaze up guiltily to meet hers, feeling like a jackass. That’s when I notice her eyes are blue. As blue as the sky above us, and she’s so damn pretty, with delicate features and pink, pink lips, that I can’t seem to form words. “Who are you?” she asks curiously. Her voice washes over me, sweet and melodic and now it’s my turn to clear my throat to get the lump out so I can freaking speak. “Who are you?” I ask back like an idiot. She smiles shyly and my entire body reacts, a bolt of electricity seeming to go through me. “I asked first.” “Are you Hale’s daughter?” If she is, that sucks because holy hell she’s hot but yeah. She’s completely untouchable if she’s a Hale.

Two is always better than one.

Knowing a fighter’s desires and needs are one thing, but actually experiencing them is another. A Fighter’s Desire gives you not one, but two stories full of hardcore passion, angst, and action that’ll leave you breathless and aching for more.
Part One: Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. They loved a good fight, and that’s exactly what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren. The brothers had a habit of sharing things—including women—and she happened to be the only one they truly craved. However, the problem was getting her to agree to their proposition. It was one she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. Nonetheless, she sure as hell was going to enjoy it.
Part Two: Fighting temptation isn’t easy when you’re constantly around the one person you’ve desired more than any other. Gabriella Reynolds was warned by her brother, MMA Heavyweight Champion Matt Reynolds, to stay away from his friends; they only wanted one thing, and in the end they’d break her heart. She heard it, but the desire to have the one man she couldn’t led her down the forbidden path to pursue him; he also happens to be one of her brother’s best friends. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, and he’s afraid she’ll want more than what he can give her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes. They have no choice but to keep their time a secret, and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.

Aside from being a wife and mother, L.P. Dover has written over nine novels including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, and her standalone novel, Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read is romantic suspense and she also loves writing it. However, if she had to choose a setting to live in it would have to be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
