Thieves 2 Lovers by K. Webster and J.D. Hollyfield
• Family
Another amazingly written rom-com by a spectacularly funny duet! When Webster and Hollyfield get together you know it’s going to be a hoot. But always be prepared for the unexpected cuz you never know what’ll happen when these two awesome authors join forces together, except a spectacular story of course! Linc and Regan are best friends who ended up kissing which made things awkward. Regan’s in a relationship with someone else and Linc’s not good enough for her, he’s the bad boy. It’s time to talk about their kiss. They miss each other but can’t stop thinking about their shared amazing kiss. Is what they feel for each other love or just a paying moment? Regardless Linc promises he’ll always be there for her, he’s get best friend. You’ll have to read Thieves 2 Lovers to find out what happens between these two. It’s funny, but remember life isn’t all always just fun and games. (Author’s note that I agree with) It is best if you’ve read Text 2 Lovers and Hate 2 Lovers so you’ll understand the dynamic of the characters in this story. Plus, you don’t want to miss out on all the fun of the first two books! Due to explicit sexual content and adult language this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via the author via bookfunnel for an honest review.

Release ~ Walk of Shame

 

Walk of Shame
Love Unexpectedly #4
By: Lauren Layne
Releasing April 18, 2017

Loveswept

 


Blurb
Sparks fly between a misunderstood New York socialite and a cynical divorce lawyer in this lively standalone rom-com from the USA Today bestselling author of Blurred Lines and Love Story.

Pampered heiress Georgianna Watkins has a party-girl image to maintain, but all the shopping and clubbing is starting to feel a little bit hollow—and a whole lot lonely. Though Georgie would never admit it, the highlights of her week are the mornings when she comes home at the same time as her uptight, workaholic neighbor is leaving to hit the gym and put in a long day at the office. Teasing him is the most fun Georgie’s had in years—and the fuel for all her naughtiest daydreams.

Celebrity divorce attorney Andrew Mulroney doesn’t have much time for women, especially spoiled tabloid princesses who spend more time on Page Six than at an actual job. Although Georgie’s drop-dead gorgeous, she’s also everything Andrew resents: the type of girl who inherited her penthouse instead of earning it. But after Andrew caps one of their predawn sparring sessions with a surprise kiss—a kiss that’s caught on camera—all of Manhattan is gossiping about whether they’re a real couple. And nobody’s more surprised than Andrew to find that the answer just might be yes.

Excerpt
And who is he, you ask?
Andrew Mulroney, Esquire.
I know this because we moved into the building on the exact same day, and right before we got into a horrendous fight over whose movers should have access to the building loading dock first, he handed me his business card.
The thick white card stock declared that he had a fancy law degree to go along with the fancy suit he was wearing on a Saturday.
Andrew handed it over with such superiority, I actually wished for a half second that I had a business card of my own that would somehow be better than his. Like, lined with gold or something. No, platinum. With a diamond in the corner. It would be too heavy for him to hold, and he’d drop it, thus having to kneel at my feet to pick it up.
But then I realized it was just as well that I didn’t have a business card.
Because it would say . . . what? Georgie Watkins, professional party girl?
Anyway, I digress. Despite the high temps of that swampy July morning, the encounter had been the start of an epic cold war.
Me, the socialite in apartment 86A against the uptight esquire in apartment 79B.
I’m not entirely sure I’m winning the war, but I’ll never tell him that.
I let my gaze drift over Andrew, even though his appearance rarely holds any surprises. The man’s a lesson in sameness, like some sort of anal-retentive version of Groundhog Day.
There’s always the black mug with some healthy gunk inside held in his right hand, Tom Ford briefcase and Armani garment bag in his left, containing what I know to be a perfectly tailored three-piece suit.
Andrew’s coppery hair is perfectly styled, although I’d swear that there’s some natural curl in there threatening to disrupt his perfect order. I imagine that annoys him, so it therefore makes me happy.
Let’s see, what else about my nemesis?
He’s got a hard, unfriendly jawline that’s perfectly shaven.
Dark brown eyes, cold and flat. Black gym bag over one shoulder.
I suppose you could say he changes up his attire, because he does alternate between black and gray gym shirts. But considering that they seem to be the exact same fit, both colors molding perfectly to his impressively sculpted upper body, we’re not giving him any points for variety there.
Same goes for the lower half. The black shorts worn in summer have given way to sleek black sweatpants now that October’s upon us, but they’re both black and Nike, so we’ll give him no credit for changing it up there either.
The shoes, though . . .
I do a double take.
Well, well, well . . .
Instead of the usual black gym shoes, the man’s shoes are red. I don’t know how I missed it before.
I drag my eyes back up his body with a grin, and he gives just the slightest roll of his eyes to indicate that he’s noticed my slow perusal and isn’t fazed in the least.
“You went shopping, Dorothy!” I say happily.
He stares at me. “I don’t shop.”
Of course not. Far too frivolous.
“No, that makes sense,” I say, pointing at his feet. “Glinda would have given these to you.”
Andrew looks down at his Rolex watch. “I’ve got to go. Have a good day, Mr. Ramirez.”
“You too, Mr. Mulroney,” Ramon says with a deferential nod. “Enjoy your workout.”
“Yes, do,” I say, turning and watching as Andrew moves toward the front door of our building. “What’s on the schedule today? Treadmill, or just skipping down the Yellow Brick Road?”
Andrew Mulroney, Esquire, doesn’t respond. He doesn’t even turn before pushing through the revolving doors and stepping out into the still-dark autumn morning.
Now come on. Tell me that wasn’t at least a little bit fun, despite the ungodly hour.

Review~

Hate 2 Lovers (Book2) by K Webster and J.D. Hollyfield
•Worry
OMG, I started laughing from the first page…. You’ve GOT TO READ THIS STORY!!! Another story I couldn’t put down until I finished, lots of our looks from people at the Dr’s office since I couldn’t help but chuckle. However I do agree with the authors, it’s better to read Text 2 Lovers first, before you start Hate 2 Lovers… You will NOT be disappointed!!! It gives an insight into Roman and Andie’s relationship. The titles to each chapter are so hilariously funny, you can’t wait to read the reason she named it that way. Now I CANNOT WAIT for Thieves 2 Lovers to come out next!!! These two authors are awesome, but together they’re spectacularly awesome!!! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via IndieSagePR for an honest blog tour review. Due to sexual situations and adult language this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older!
Favorite Passages ~
~ “Please don’t kick my ass,” Chase says with a nervous chuckle. “You’re like twice my size, and I really like your sister.”
~ Is a rocket launcher too much?
~ But with the help of the man I am about to marry, I realized that true love conquers.

**Note from authors~ We hope you enjoy Andie and Roman’s story! Writing together is an absolute joy for us and we hope that shows! As with Text 2 Lovers, one of us took the hero’s POV and the other took the heroine’s POV. If you read the first book, you’ll remember! We’ll also tell you at the end. It is best if you’ve read Text 2 Lovers first though because you’ll understand the dynamic of Andie and Roman better…plus, you don’t want to miss out on all the laughs from book one! Enjoy and we’ll see you on the other side! K Webster and J.D. Hollyfield (*Directly from book)

Review~
•Unexpected
What a hilarious combination these two authors came up with, it’s awesome! I had a hard time trying to keep my laughs in while hubby tried sleeping next to me. Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down until I finished it.
Dani just caught her boyfriend well ex now, with his tongue down his “neighbors” throat. So while slamming drinks at the bar with her best friend Andi she ends up sending a bunch of angry texts to him. However she accidentally sends them to a wrong number instead. The guy that ends up receiving them actually makes her smile and laugh so they continue texting, as well as begin talking at night too.
Ram has been in a slump ever since being set up by his ex, which cost him to lose his job. To top it off, his brother is the one whom had to fire him. Now he’s trying to start his own advertising company, but has had a mental block at what to use for the clients logo. That is until he’s drunk texted by some random lady that actually makes him laugh. After she uses a Princess Bride movie quote it helps him figure out what to use for his client. Ram wants to get to know this person Carrie better and in person, but she’s not ready for that. After the way her ex treated her Ram understands, but texting isn’t enough so he calls to hear her voice and make sure she’s a real person.
The circumstances that align for their unexpected first meeting is hilarious! You’ve got to read TEXT 2 LOVERS to find out how it happens as well as the roller coaster ride of life these two experience. I am sooooo looking forward to more from these two authors together! These two took an approach I haven’t seen or read before, but oh was it wonderful to read. One author wrote the heroine’s POV while the other took the hero’s. You’ll have to read the story to figure out which author wrote which, because trying to figure it out is part of the fun. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via IndieSagePR through bookfunnel for an honest blog tour review. Due to sexual situations and adult language this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older!

💖SYNOPSIS💖
Princess Perripraxis not only has to find a fiancé—and fast—she’s got to find one who doesn’t mind that her “no makeup” face has green and purple scales. Otherwise, Daddy Dearest has plans that don’t include Perri’s compliance. Candidate Number One: Her sexy human best friend, Brandt.

Bartender Brandt Turner didn’t need all those years in the army to teach him never to leave a man behind. Or an alien princess in need of a pretend fiancé. If she needs someone to play the lovesick fool to convince her dad to let her stay on Earth, well then, he’ll let the world think Cupid finally took him out.

But Perri’s father has no intention of playing nice—and he’s not above cruel and unusual alien torture to make things go his way. But Brandt is willing to complete the mission…however far he has to go.

Excerpt~
“I’m here. And I’m not going to let anything hurt you. You know that, right?”

“Yeah.” Her breathing started to slow. “Yeah, I know.”

He reached over and took her hand. “Whoever it was in that dream? They are never going to hurt you again. Never. I don’t care who they are or how many soldiers they have at their back or whatever type of crazy alien monster they fight for fun on their home planet. They don’t get to hurt you ever again. Do you understand me?”

“Yes.” She sniffled and his chest tightened. “Brandt?”

“Yeah?”

“Would you stay with me? Just until I fall back to sleep? You don’t—”

His heart began to thump painfully at the fear that lingered in her voice. This was a bad idea. Being her friend
meant not getting into a position where his inner asshole could take over. He needed to keep that part of himself on a leash, and climbing into bed with a beautiful, vulnerable alien princess wearing nothing but one of his T-shirts and a pair of teeny-tiny little shorts? That was a road straight to hell for his intentions.

But whatever was waiting for her in that dream? It had her scared. Terrified her. And if that meant he had to man up and be a big damn hero? He’d do it, and he’d keep his thoughts as pure as an altar boy at the same time.

Thankfully, he was pretty sure altar boys were just as pervy as other kids, they just kept it under wraps. And he could do that.

“Budge over,” he said, and squeezed her hand again.

“And keep your snoring to a minimum. Some of us need to get our beauty sleep.”

“I don’t snore,” she retorted, chuckling.

“No, you just do chain saw imitations in your sleep,” he teased as he lifted the sheet and slid into his suddenly-much too-small bed beside her.

She rolled over so that she was facing him, and he slid his arm underneath her neck, pulling her close so he could cradle her.

“Brandt?”

“Yeah?”

“Thanks for this,” she said as she settled her head on his chest.

“For cuddling you? No problem. I’m a man who loves his cuddles. Serious cuddle addict right here. I should be the one thanking you. And just so you know, tomorrow I’m going to want to sit down over tea and discuss our feelings and coordinate manicures. And pedicures. Oh, and I’m sogoing to need my hair braided. You can’t let me down now.”

“Asshole,” she squeaked.

He stared down at her and knew his mouth was hanging open in surprise at the insult. He’d never even heard Perri say “crap” before. “Was that your first cuss word?”

“Maybe. Why? What’s wrong with it?”

“Not a thing.” He smiled as he stared up at the ceiling and tried his hardest not to pet her hair. “I was just curious.”

“Brandt?”

“Yeah?”

“You’re not really going to make me drink Earth tea and paint my nails tomorrow, are you? I’m really not good with that whole polish thing. It seeps through my outer skin and stains my tentacles and clogs my pores and it really itches.”

“Fine.” He let out a dramatic sigh. “I guess we can skip that part, if it’s that big of an issue. But I want you to know without the talking and the tea and the manicures this now feels just a little bit cheap and tawdry. But I’ll endure.”

“Thank you, Brandt.”

He gave up his resistance and brought his right hand across his chest to smooth her hair while his left hand rested on her lower back. “No problem, sweetheart.”

HIS FAKE ALIEN FIANCÉE (Out of This World Book 2) by Patricia Eimer
~Love?
After escaping the forced marriage her father arranged that’d help him, but not what she wanted. Perri arrived on Earth with her sister Corri. Now her father wants to force both of them into yet another marriage. But while talking to her father Perri tells him he doesn’t need to find them husbands because they’ve both found their soul-mates. While this is true for her sister Corri, it isn’t for Perri! Now she has to find someone in their extremely small town that’ll pretend to be her fiancé when her father comes to town in 4 days. However there is only a handful of people besides Agent Fox that know she’s an alien…. Her sister, her sisters soul-mate Mattias, their boss at the diner and her husband, Brandt; who happens to not only be Mattias’ best friend, but has been Perri’s best human friend since she arrived. Brandt had been taught by his mother to be there when he’s needed, so he volunteers to help Perri by being her pretend fiancé while her father is in town. However since he’s never been the type of relationship guy, just the love ’em and leave ’em type, he didn’t plan on cupid’s arrow catching him. Perri’s father on the other hand doesn’t plan to play fair, he’s always gotten things his way and has no intention of things going any other way. But Brandt is willing to go as far as it takes for to keep Perri safe and on Earth. To find out how all this comes about you’ll have to read HIS FAKE ALIEN FIANCÉE. This is a cute and funny romantic sci-fi alien story. After reading this one, it makes me want to go back and read Patricia’s first book of this series OUT OF THIS WORLD. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via IndieSage and Entangled Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest blog tour review.

Engaged to a murderous, intergalactic warlord, Capridocian Princess Corripraxis is running for her life and crash lands on Earth, where large creatures moo at her, threatening to expose her as an alien.

Patricia Eimer is a suburban mom who has days where she feels like she’s barely hanging on. She currently lives in eastern Pennsylvania with her two wonderful kids and a husband that learned the gourmet art of frozen pizzas to give her more time to write.

When she’s not writing she can be found on Facebook, at her website (www.patriciaeimer.com) or blogging about her attempts at cooking and her complete inability to craft as a contributor to the Suburban Flail Blog (www.suburbanflail.com). She is also a connoseiur of really bad science jokes.

Excerpt:

COURTING SANDY EGGO
posted by Courtney Sanders

LEARNING ABOUT HIM ABOUT ME

This guy was sort of badgering me to go out with him, and I finally accepted. I’ll be honest—he reads my blog, so I have to be careful with what I say because I know he’ll see it the second his inbox notifies him of a new post.
I met Carter when his wet dog ruined my dress—and that’s not a metaphor. He’s in town visiting from New York, and last night I learned that he’s not only persistent, he’s easy to talk to and fun to be around.
But you know what I didn’t learn?
Anything about him.
I didn’t even realize it until I got home last night after a really unexpectedly nice first date.
He got me talking. He asked me questions. He listened attentively.
But every time the subject turned from me to him, he locked up and threw it back at me. He’d give me a vague non-response and then turn it back around.
He learned a lot about me. He now knows that I break into my ex’s house to walk his dog. (It’s okay, my ex knows, too. Apparently his security cameras gave me away.) He knows that I love my job. He knows where I find inspiration for articles. He knows the little secret thing I do on Saturday mornings. (Don’t ask. I’m not telling you. I have to keep some things just for me—and now Carter, I suppose.)
He even managed to make me realize a few things about myself. For one thing, I’ve never had a really serious relationship. My last few boyfriends have been fleeting, and the one who had the most potential turned out to be less than supportive of my career. Another thing I concluded is that I really want a dog of my own. I didn’t even realize it until he pointed it out as I spoke dreamily about how much I miss Shelby.
So even though I had a nice dinner and the kind of first date that makes me want a second, I don’t feel like I know anything more about Carter than I did when the night started.
I don’t know why he’s in town.
I don’t know what he does for a living.
I don’t know why he was at the beach with a shelter dog the day we met.
I don’t know why he was kind of a douche that day.
I don’t know why he’s been so persistent in getting me to go out with him.
I don’t know anything about his family.
What I do know?
I do know that he’s really sexy and I want to see him again. I want him to kiss me.
I stared across the table, champagne sweetening my tongue as my eyes locked on his lips. For hours I stared at those lips. They’re full without being too plump. They’re soft and velvety.
Well, they look soft and velvety. I wouldn’t know if they actually are.
The night didn’t end with those velvety lips on mine. It did, however, end with the promise of a second date, a second date that will in fact occur later this evening, so stay tuned tomorrow—or later tonight, possibly, depending on how things go—for the latest.
Carter, since I know you’re reading this, this part’s for you:
Will you please just fucking kiss me tonight?

Synopsis~

It’s the start of nothing good.
I fired off a storm of raunchy text messages…to the wrong number.
And he replied.
Him: Show me a picture.
Him: Tell me your name.
Why does the lure of anonymity have me craving to indulge a stranger?
It’s the start of everything right.
I received a slew of text messages…when everything in my life was wrong.
And she made me laugh again.
Her: You’re probably a creeper.
Her: Possibly a stalker.
Why do I have the overwhelming need to find this stranger who saved me and make her mine?
Him: Take a chance with me.
Her: This is crazy.
Him: I need to see you.
Her: What are we doing?
Him: We’re about to find out.

Her: PHOTO ATTACHED
Him: PHOTO ATTACHED

Text 2 Lovers by K Webster and J.D. Hollyfield

•Unexpected
What a hilarious combination these two authors came up with, it’s awesome! I had a hard time trying to keep my laughs in while hubby tried sleeping next to me. Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down until I finished it.
Dani just caught her boyfriend well ex now, with his tongue down his “neighbors” throat. So while slamming drinks at the bar with her best friend Andi she ends up sending a bunch of angry texts to him. However she accidentally sends them to a wrong number instead. The guy that ends up receiving them actually makes her smile and laugh so they continue texting, as well as begin talking at night too.
Ram has been in a slump ever since being set up by his ex, which cost him to lose his job. To top it off, his brother is the one whom had to fire him. Now he’s trying to start his own advertising company, but has had a mental block at what to use for the clients logo. That is until he’s drunk texted by some random lady that actually makes him laugh. After she uses a Princess Bride movie quote it helps him figure out what to use for his client. Ram wants to get to know this person Carrie better and in person, but she’s not ready for that. After the way her ex treated her Ram understands, but texting isn’t enough so he calls to hear her voice and make sure she’s a real person.
The circumstances that align for their unexpected first meeting is hilarious! You’ve got to read TEXT 2 LOVERS to find out how it happens as well as the roller coaster ride of life these two experience. I am sooooo looking forward to more from these two authors together! These two took an approach I haven’t seen or read before, but oh was it wonderful to read. One author wrote the heroine’s POV while the other took the hero’s. You’ll have to read the story to figure out which author wrote which, because trying to figure it out is part of the fun. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book. via IndieSage through bookfunnel in exchange for an honest blog tour review. Due to sexual situations and adult language this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older!

PRETEND IT’S LOVE
Behind the Bar #2
By Stefanie London
Entangled Lovestruck

image

One fake relationship shaken not stirred…

Bar manager Paul Chapman is sick of his family’s traditional ideals. Marriage, babies, and a white picket fence? Not his gig. But now that his ‘golden child’ big brother is tying the knot, Paul’s screwed. His ex will be there…and she’s having his cousin’s baby. Unless he wants to show up to the wedding alone and face his family’s scrutiny, he needs a girl on his arm. Now.
Cocktail specialist Libby Harris has spent her life earning the nickname Little Miss Perfect, all to win the love of her wealthy, controlling father. But she deviated from his plan, and now her business is on shaky ground. If it fails, she might as well kiss his respect-and her dream-good-bye. Her only hope? Convince the hottest bar in town to take on her product.

Luckily for her, the owner’s brother is sexy as sin and in need of a perfect girlfriend…

Review~
PRETEND IT’S LOVE (Behind the Bar #2) by Stefanie London
•Two Birds One Stone
What an exciting love story, Stefanie has done it again! Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down until I finished, I had to know if Paul came around or kept his head in the sand.
Libby is set to launch her new business, Libby Gal Cocktails—a line of girlie infused vodkas and cocktail mixes. However a female reality celebrity has beat her to the punch by a month. Now all the businesses she had lined up for her launch are backing out and dropping her like flies in favor for the celebrity. Libby’s father wants her to stop her nonsense and go back to medical school. Her parents have never shown her the unconditional love and support that she’s seen with family’s around her.
Paul enjoys being the bar manager for the bar that his brother runs. However he feels like he couldn’t measure up to his brother’s success, he is always in his shadow. When he finds out that Stella, his ex is going to not only be at his brother’s wedding with her husband who is not only Paul’s cousin, but the guy she cheated on Paul with, but she’s pregnant too. He knows he’s got to figure out a way to find someone he trusts enough to bring to the wedding, it’s in six weeks!
Libby needs a bar to take a chance and showcase her cocktails and Paul needs a perfect girlfriend for the wedding. It’s a perfect solution for what they both need, a complete fake relationship. With ground rules in place of course… It’s a business deal only, no emotions, no falling in love~ easy since neither do relationships. No sex with anyone.. Doesn’t matter that they’re both extremely attracted to each other. You’ll have to read PRETEND IT’S LOVE to find out what happens between Libby and Paul. By the time I finished reading this story my cheeks hurt from smiling or laughing. Although this is the second book in the series, each story is a standalone  novel that coincides with each other. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via Tasty Book Tours through NetGalley in exchange for an honest blog tour review. Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 17 and older.
Favorite Passages ~
~ The gorgeous ones always made you pay with more than you could afford. They were like credit card debt: trouble from the beginning and hard to get over.
~ “That promise is about as solid as cotton candy.”
~ It would be easy to stay warm and cozy inside her comfort zone, but there was nothing there for her anymore.
~ Today would be the day she let her heart do the talking, and she’d have an answer one way or another.
~ “Besides, boys are stupid. We can’t crucify them for every little mistake.”
