COVER REVEAL: Gilded Lily by Staci Hart



Gilded Lily, the second in the Bennett Brothers series from Staci Hart, is coming in only 17 days. I am so excited! Check out the beautiful cover for this upcoming release. I love the vibe of this series and the covers are to die for! Mark your calendars for December 5th!






They say there’s no such thing as perfect. But I’ve built my life to perfection—the perfect boyfriend, the perfect apartment, the perfect career planning celebrity weddings. My job—my only job—is to make sure every event is absolutely and completely perfect.

What’s not perfect? Kash Bennet.

And I wish I didn’t find that so appealing. I could have told you every perfectly imperfect thing about the gardener at Longbourne. Like his hair, lush and black and far too long. Or his nose, the flat bridge of a Greek god, bent a little like it’s been broken. Or his size. Beastly. Roped and corded with muscles, gleaming with sweat and peppered with dirt.

There’s no escaping him, not if I’m going to use his family’s flower shop for my events.

But nothing is what it seems. And in the span of a heartbeat, my perfect life is turned inside out.

They say the best way to get over somebody is to get under somebody new. When Kash offers his services to the cause, it sounds like the perfect plan.

What’s not part of the plan? Falling in love with the gardener.

But they were right—there’s no such thing as perfect.

And I’m the fool who finds out the hard way.

Everyone hates parts of their job.
Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want, or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave.
But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs. Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all.
Except for Luke Bennet.
The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint. When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him. Almost.
He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him.
Everyone hates part of their job, and I hate Luke Bennet.
Because if I don’t, I’ll fall in love with him.





Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

REVIEW: Iron Crowne by C.D. Reiss

IC - RB banner

“Beyond sexy, beyond stunning, and Byron Crowne is the alpha of the year!

Iron Crowne is CD Reiss at her potent, powerful best!”

—Sierra Simone, USA Today bestselling author

Iron Crowne, an all-new wickedly sexy and addicting enemies to lovers standalone from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, is available now!

Iron-Crowne-cover

OUR REVIEW:

I really enjoy going into C.D. Reiss novels without a clue as to what I'm getting myself into. There aren't many writers that I can blindly one click and trust that I'm going to get an engaging read that pushes all of my buttons but Reiss is one of them. I've  come to know that no matter what she's writing, she's going to put me in a world that I find wildly entertaining and of course that's exactly what I found when I read Iron Crowne.

Before I go too much further let me establish two things:

1. This novel is a stand alone--so no cliffhangers (whew!).
2. I had a ton of fun reading this novel and if you love Reiss or you're brand new to her novels, I think you will have fun reading this one too.

Now that those things are out of the way, let me just say OMFGWTF with these characters. They drove me crazy (in the best possible way). I was so torn. The iamfeministhearmeroar part of me was all RAWR look at you, you bad ass Olivia, you. Give him hell. Tear him to pieces. (The 'him' being Byron--her sexy hot nemesis). Then as I watched what seemed like a train wreck happening right in front of my face when it came to her I was all "NOOOOOOO. STOP. WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!!" *facepalm* *facepalm* *facepalm* GAH. You can imagine how strange it was to have that intense feeling while also wanting her to capitulate to her horndog wants and needs and desires because I knew it was going to be so good and hot and dang girl, get you some. GAH.

Quite a mashup of emotions... and that was before I even got to know Byron that well. So you can guess that once his POV was woven into the narrative, I got even more invested in what was going to happen and how it would all go down. He was equally maddening. The push and pull and emotional pretzeling he did to himself and to her were so not necessary, BYRON. WHY MUST YOU FIGHT SO HARD BYRON. JUST GIVE IN TO YOUR EMOTIONS. Le sigh.

These two + their families + their stories before they met were interesting and just the perfect storm of conflict and emotion (and sexy times). I was fully engaged and absorbed and I'm sincerely hoping we see ALL of the Crownes and both of Olivia's friends have stories of their own. I love a good spin off and I feel like this book has so many characters left to explore. BUY THIS BOOK and you can thank us later.


Byron Crowne is a charming liar and a gorgeous monster.
I detest him.
I can't resist him.
He’s awakened desires I didn’t know I had.
When he touches me, I need to fight him . . . and I need him to win.
Our one night stand bruises my skin and leaves dents in the walls, but the sheets aren't the only thing we shred that night.
And suddenly, the stakes are higher than ever.
***
Olivia Monroe lights a fire in me that died a long time ago.
I’m a different man when I’m with her. I need to own her, take her, mark her as mine.
Everything changes when she might be pregnant and for the first time in my life . . . I’m powerless against this stubborn, untamable woman.
She’s the one in control and I have an impossible job:
Prove I’m worthy to be a father.

About CD Reiss
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.
She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Ambition. Revenge. Love.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.
Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but the man I trusted with everything was a trickster. A thief who stole my love. If what we had was a lie, why did it feel so real? The man I swore to hate will have it all, and wants me at his side. But power is a game, and we’re the pawns and players.
Facing insurmountable odds, will we win the world, or will we lose it all?

NEW REVIEW: The Fall of Legend by Meghan March

The Fall of Legend Release Day Blitz/Blog Tour Collateral
Release Date: November 12, 2019



OUR REVIEW:


The Fall of Legend reminds me of the early years of our current romance resurgence—it’s got that feeling of impending big drama and big romance but flipped-- in earlier years men were the all powerful and women were fighting to get a foothold in the power structure. Now, Legend is the one trying to gain power and Scarlett is the one who seemingly holds the power. I love it. Taking all the things that those books in the early 20-teens and modernizing it made it a fun read. 

Another thing that made this a fun read? The humor. Take the first scene--it was an interesting mix of intrigue and humor—Bump is endearing and sweet and hilarious--and yet WTF was going on with someone being rolled up in a carpet?! I was officially hooked. I wanted to more of Legend and Bump and Scarlett. 

Legend and Scarlett did not disappoint. He was broody and intense and on a mission to prove a few things or perhaps find redemption by being a success. She was confident and bright and had nothing to prove to anyone and I loved her for that ...and her business (what a brilliant idea, Meghan March!). I'm so ready to see how these two battle the obstacles that March is going to create for them.

This first book sets us up for the drama to come and I am so here for it--a furious ex, not so good family dynamic, and a public image to uphold on one side, and a past trying to catch up to a a present, a present that’s in economic peril on the other. And the most important: a fledgling romance that’s on shaky ground. Get to writing Meghan March, we need more of this brooding Legend and his lovely Scarlett.

About The Fall of Legend:


From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a new deliciously dangerous alpha hero
in The Fall of Legend, the first book in the brand new and utterly addictive Legend trilogy.


We come from two different worlds.
I’m from the streets. She might as well live in an ivory tower.
I made my living with my fists. I doubt she could even throw a punch.
Our paths never should have crossed.
We never should have met. 
That doesn’t change the facts.
I would sell my soul to taste those red lips.
Fight the devil himself to hear her laugh.
Burn in hell to have a single night.
Scarlett Priest shouldn’t even know men like me exist, but sometimes temptation is stronger than will. 
If this is how I go down, it’ll be worth every second of the fall.

COVER REVEAL: Coming Up Roses by Staci Hart



Coming Up Roses, the first in Staci Hart's Bennet Brothers, has a new look! What do you think?






Everyone hates parts of their job.

Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want, or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave.

But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs. Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all.

Except for Luke Bennet.

The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint. When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him. Almost.

He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him.
