The perfect man for me is the one who broke my heart.
#thanksbutnothanks
Once bitten.
Twice shy.
Yeah, I wish.
I’m on a mission to find myself a nice, solid, respectable man. The only problem is nice, solid, and respectable comes in a meh package and is B-O-R-I-N-G as hell.
It’s been established. I have one type. Bad Boy. I tried the other flavors, I really did. But there’s nothing like the allure of a man who takes what he wants without apology.
As if my love life isn’t dramatic enough, Dean Bennett walks into my life again thinking he’s going to win me back with his charm and charisma. He might come in a different package, but under that expensive suit he’s still the same cocky, arrogant, pompous prick who only cares about numero uno.
I’m not that naïve young girl anymore so I have to ignore the fact that the way he looks at me practically sets my panties on fire.
Everyone deserves a second chance to right a wrong. The problem? He’s not just an ex-boyfriend…
He’s my ex-husband.

Review:
This book was so funny and caring. It has a lot of hard love in it. Chelsea is as stubborn as they come and she doesn't let anyone in. When she realizes that the company's new tax attorney is also her ex-husband everything comes back. They were only married for a short time but that short time was everything to her. Will Dean go back to his old ways? Has he really changed? Does he want her back just for spite? She has all of these questions to answer while also trying to keep herself sane.

Release with Review:: Gent by Harloe Rae

30 May



Title: GENT
Author: Harloe Rae
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: May 30, 2018



Blurb

Raven Elliot blasts into town like a wrecking ball—striking and devastating.
With a few simple words, my reliable routine crumbles to dust.

“Is this seat taken?”

I could close my eyes and let her voice wrap around me like a lover’s caress.
But this isn’t that kind of story.
And I’m sure as hell not that kind of man.

She hovers in my space, batting her lashes and smiling shyly.
The glimmer in her sapphire eyes is a promise of peace.
But I’m not falling for it.
And Raven doesn't take the hint.

What starts as a battle of wills, explodes into a turf war.
She stands directly in my path everywhere I turn.
No matter how hard I shove, she won’t budge.
Raven seems dead set on driving me insane.
But I was here first.
And I’m not going down easy.

After all, no one ever taught me how to treat a lady.

Excerpt

“Listen, babe—”
She holds up her hand like a stop sign and for some reason, having her interrupt doesn’t bother me.
“Did you just babe me?” Her question is all sass.
“Sure did, sweetheart. Call ‘em like I see ‘em. Don’t pretend to be offended. We both know why you’re over here talking to me.”
Her face turns an adorable shade of pink. “First, stop with the nicknames. Second, are you for real? What the hell is wrong with you?”
“I don’t see any issue. You’re the one disrupting my quiet evening.”
“What the… I mean, seriously? I want to sit down and this is the only available spot. You honestly think I came over here to hit on you?”
Her ridiculous question doesn’t deserve a response. My glare matches hers as I silently explain my opinion on the matter. My expression must tell her everything she needs to know.
“Wow, you’re an asshole.”
“You’re the third woman to call me that tonight. Be careful, I might get a complex.”
“Aw, poor baby. I’d hate to dent your fragile ego,” she snips with a curl in her lip.
“There’s nothing fragile about me. Don’t worry. I’m hard and solid. Wanna feel?” I ask and pat my abs.
She nods to my hands. “No, thanks. I’d hate for you to rub off on me.”
“Does the grease under my nails bother you? Princess is afraid of getting a little dirty?”
“Do you get a rise out of being mean?”
I lean against the bar and cross my arms. “I don’t get many complaints. You’re not from around here, so I’ll fill you in—the ladies love me.”
“Pretty sure I saw Barbie McCleveage storm off after chatting with you. She didn’t look too satisfied.”
“Now who’s using nicknames? Jealous much?”
“Hardly,” she huffs.  
I smirk before checking out her rack, being extremely obvious about it. Pushing her buttons takes away the tension from earlier, replacing it with a surprising ease. Fighting with her is the most nonsexual fun I’ve had with a woman in a long time. Wonder how she’d react if I called her ma’am.
“All right, all right. You’ve broken me down. I was set on not having any company tonight, but for you, I’ll make an exception. If you insist on standing here, blabbing away, I’ve got far better uses for that luscious mouth. My place isn’t too far away,” I suggest while waggling my brows. My behavior is over the top, but what can I say? She’s bringing out the best in me.
Her lips part in shock. This stranger just stares at me, and I’m sure she’s about to turn away… or slap me. Either way, mission accomplished.
But this chick is full of surprises.




Review:
This story had a little bit of everything. It had the misunderstood bad boy. The innocent girl who just wanted to learn life. The mouthy friend. The friendship that shouldn't have happened. Trey tries to keep Raven at arms length. The more he pushes, the more she digs into his heart. These two have an odd friendship that turns into a little more. Trey will not allow his head to see what his heart does. He was very stubborn with the whole 'can't love' thing. He had convinced himself that love is bad. Raven just wants to be loved. And she thinks she is until she isn't. When they get on the same page, these two are explosive and loving.

Release with Review:: Allure by CA Harms

23 May


Title: Allure (Brooklet Dreams)
Author: CA Harms
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2018 Publisher: Limitless Publishing
The next generation of the Southern Boys returns in a new spin-off series, Brooklet Dreams…
She was supposed to be my forever...

I’ll never forget the first time I saw her. She wore overalls two sizes too big and a pair of gloves that were also too large for her little hands. But that didn’t faze her one bit, and we clicked instantly. 
By the age of twelve, we had become best friends, and by the time we turned sixteen, we were more. I had eyes for only one girl. My girl.
But then life changed, and different paths led to broken promises. When she left town, I was forced to let go of our dreams.
I spent my days existing. Baseball, classes, and working at the family farm became my life. I didn’t care about anything else. Until I met Allison Jo. 
AJ was the quiet girl I never expected. She brought me to my knees with that beautiful smile. She made me laugh and slowly brought the old me back to life. I found myself wanting more with her.
I became her world, and she was my everything. 
But when my past returns, my world is turned upside down. 
I’m not sure I was prepared for what was about to happen.




Review:
I loved Rhett and AJ together. I love that this girl put her heart out there and tried to make him forget about his past. I loved that you felt the passion between these two. I loved that you were able to feel Rhett's compassion and the way that he has to grow. The story that we are given was real, it was heart, and it was amazing the way it all came together. 


C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.
She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.

Giveaway:: 5 Winners! $20 Amazon Gift Card & "A Candle For My Mother" Giveaway!

22 May

Sponsored By: Pamela Newton

Hosted By: Love, Mrs. Mommy

*~* 5 Winner Giveaway! *~* 

Grand Prize Winner will receive a:  $20 Gift Card To Amazon & a Copy of the Book "A Candle for My Mother"

4 Runners-up will receive a:  copy of the book "A Candle for My Mother"

Author: Pamela Newton
About the Book:
A Candle for My Mother is an inspirational story of a young woman from the Midwest, Lorraine Newton, who longed to travel the world despite being the mother of four young children. “I’m going to see places, come hell or high water!” Lorraine remarked, and she made it happen. Lorraine’s stories in the book are told in her own words from tape recordings she made before she died, and letters saved by a friend, detailing Lorraine’s family’s amazing experiences in Iraq and travels in Europe. Into the bubbling political cauldron of the Middle East in the 1950s ventured an American family. Iraq was not necessarily what Lorraine had in mind, but the country fit exotic to a tee. It conjured up “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,” markets filled with silks and gold, and travel in Europe on vacations. Lorraine was about to embark on a grand adventure. Pamela Newton never felt closer to her mom than when she was traveling, sometimes logging over 100,000 miles a year: “Mom’s adventurous spirit was with me on every trip, in every country, encouraging me to make the most of each moment.” The things that Pamela experienced on her business trips often triggered a remembrance of her mother and her childhood. Those memories became the reflections and gratitude's that Pamela expresses at the end of each chapter when visiting churches across the globe to light candles for her mother, a tradition she began in Westminster Abbey. For readers who may be reminded of exciting memories from their childhood, A Candle for My Mother has been designed with pages interspersed throughout for writing personal reflections. Here a son or daughter can add their favorite pictures, recount “Best Day Ever” times, write a thank you to their mom, or include poems, musings, or thoughts. It is designed to be a gift to oneself or one’s mom. Read it, write in it and then give it to your mother…with gratitude.

Release with Review:: Marek by Sawyer Bennett

Marek: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: May 22, 2018

Synopsis:

Marek Fabritis is used to delivering blows, not receiving them. But when he gets tipped off by an anonymous email about his ex-girlfriend, the news leaves him ice cold—and it’s not because Gracen Moore is getting married to a total jerk. It’s the fact that Marek has a three-year-old daughter he never knew about. Now he’s going back home, not to play knight in shining armor but to make damn sure that no man takes what’s his. For the first time, there might be something more important than hockey.

Gracen Moore has always loved Marek. That’s why she let him go, so he could pursue a career in the NHL. And that’s why she never told him about Lilly. Only now does Gracen realize that she made an unforgivable mistake. But is that any reason for Marek to crash her wedding and make an epic scene? If the spark that still smolders between them is to be trusted, maybe. Still, Gracen’s not getting her hopes up. Because she knows better than anyone that appearances aren’t always what they seem. . . .

Review:

We are back in the game with Cold Fury. Their team keeps evolving and we are meeting new members as Gray signs them. We met Marek in Reed's book. They are tight and by the end we knew he had made his way back home to stop a wedding. A wedding he was very upset about and more so when he finds out he has a daughter.
Gracen was left. She was hurt. She knew Marek left to be a single carefree guy, why would she bother him with a child? I saw her reasoning and truth be told I would have probably done the same. When she is drug back to North Carolina with him, her life is chaos. Marek doesn't know how to express his feelings, all they do is argue or ignore each other. All this with a 3 year old, Lilly was the highlight of the book. She was a joy to both her parents. I didn't feel the connection with these two that I do with my Cold Fury peeps but it was a very well told and emotional story.
Another highlight, of course, was a party for the team that featured some of our favorites. Update my favorite player ever in a sports series, Zack, has a new baby that we are introduced to. All in all it was awesome and sweet and Sawyer is a great author. I really hope there is another one coming.

Release with Review:: In This Life by Cora Brent

20 May

Title: In This Life
Author: Cora Brent
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 15, 2018

KATHLEEN 
Things I know about Nash Ryan: 
Loner.
Unpredictable.
Wickedly hot.
Unforgiving.
Probably not the kind of man anyone should trust with an infant.
Definitely not the kind of man any woman should trust with her heart.
When Nash returned to town for the sake of his baby brother I thought I already understood who he was. 
I also thought I was done giving my heart away until he proved otherwise.
But we don’t stand a chance. 
Everything is ready to unravel.
And the secrets I’ve kept will be our undoing.
NASH 
This isn’t the first time I’ve known tragedy. 
Maybe that’s why I’ve chosen to remain alone. 
But my life of solitude ends now because a terrible twist of fate has made me
the guardian of my four-month-old brother. 
Suddenly I’ve got a kid to raise and a family business to save and there’s no time for anything else. 
That’s why Kathleen Doyle and I made this arrangement. 
Once a skinny nerd girl who used to follow me around everywhere, she’s now a single mom with flaming hair, a killer body and too many responsibilities. 
We told each other it was just sex. 
We told each other there were no strings attached, no expectations. 
We lied. 
And the consequences will cost us. 
But I’m not surrendering this new family without a battle. 
Because in this life we might only get one chance to have it all.

Review:
This story stole my heart. Kathleen is raising her 3 year old in her hometown when tragedy strikes. Soon her teenage crush is back in town to take care of his brother. Nash went from a hard man with a troubled past to a softy. I loved watching his transformation. With the help of Kathleen, he is raising a 4 month old, holding down the family business, and opening his heart. I loved how these two thought they were fooling themselves when their hearts really knew what was going on. The love that is held between these will make your heart squeeze  tight for the ride.
We told each other there were no strings attached, no expectations. 

We lied. 

And the consequences will cost us. 
But no matter what’s at stake I have no intention of giving up on this family. 
Because in this life we might only have once chance to get it right...

Cora Brent was born in a cold climate and escaped as soon as it was legally possible. Now, she lives in the desert with her husband, two kids and a prickly pear cactus she has affectionately named ‘Spot’. Cora’s closet is filled with boxes of unfinished stories that date back her 1980’s childhood and all her life she has dreamed of being an author. Amazingly, she is now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of contemporary romance and begs not to be awakened from this dream.
