Cover Reveal: Making Up, Helena Hunting


Genre: Romantic Comedy
World: Standalone in The Shacking Up Series 
Release Date: July 16th, 2019
Hero:  Griffin Mills (oldest Mills brother to Bancroft from Shacking Up and Lexington from Hooking Up)


Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever encountered walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.
Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.
As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

Review: Pretty Reckless, L. J. Shen

Pretty Reckless, an all-new standalone high school, bully romance from USA Today bestselling L. J. Shen is available now!

We were supposed to be best friends
But turned out to be worst enemies…

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart is completely iced.
I took her first kiss.
She took the only thing I loved.
I was poor.
She was rich.
The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.
Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.
Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.
Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.
There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.
Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Everyone loves a good-old, unapologetic punk.
But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.
The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.
In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.
Four years ago, he asked me to save all of my firsts for him.
Now he lives across the hall, and there’s nothing I want more than to be his last everything.
His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.
Now? Now he is making me pay.

Lord have mercy. L. J. Shen KNOWS how to write an emotional read like no other. Daria and Penn completely shattered my heart into million pieces right from the freaking prologue. What the hell was this... I don't think a character had me crying as much as Daria did through out the whole book, this girl... oh how I understood her and could relate to some of what she was feeling. I fell for her HARD. I love a broken hero story but I haven't read a broken heroine book like this one EVER and I just felt so much for Daria, my heart beats were on hold until the last page.

This book made me feel everything, all the emotions, all the words and all the actions. It pulled me in from the very first sentence and I could not stop reading until things were okay for this sweet broken girl. Daria is so missunderstood and she hides behind a b*tch mask to hide her real feelings but her heart, her heart is so big and she feels so much. My poor sweet girl hiding her love behind cruel words and cool clothes.

Penn, I did love him but not as much as Daria which for me is a first. Penn blames Daria for ruining his life because it's easier to hate her then love her. It's been years since the moment they shared when they were kids that ended imploding their lives as they knew it but now everything imploded again and they are forced to live under the same roof... and now, now it's much harder to hate her... knowing who she really is, seeing her struggle with her family, her friends, with herself. Their attraction is off the charts and pulls them closer every day, their hateful exchanges turn into meanful conversations, their kisses turn into more and soon it's impossible to deny that what they always fought happened.

But it's much more complicated than that...there are way too many variables at play for them to simply fall into a relationship. Daria's relationship with her mom, all the secrets she's hidden, ASH Principal, Penn's sister, the rival football teams and their fights, everyone plays a part in the mess that is Daria and Penn's story and everyone makes it a little harder to solve their problems.

Daria and Mel's relationship broke my heart. I kind of hated Mel a little and was a little put off by Jamie not doing anything so I'm super glad that Shen wrote that Mel chapter because it made me see the other side of the equation and I needed that. And Jamie.. my baby, he loved his little girl so much. <3

I loved getting to know Knight, Vaugh and Luna and I cannot wait for their books. This series will be the best thing ever. It's written in the stars. Each of these kids is special just like their parents were, maybe even more so. I'm so ready for all the angst, all the drama the next books will have. I'm so damn curious about Vaugh and cannot wait to read Knight's book, will or will he not win Luna over? ahhhh!

ASH is going to be an epic series and Pretty Reckless started it off so right. Shen gave us all the angst, all the heart, all the feels, the drama, the fights and the most amazing moments. These kids, wow... I love a good YA with loads of high school drama but this school, this book was so much more than what you can expect, SO MUCH MORE. I was living for it but at the same time I was almost dead. The emotions this lady brought out of me, the stress of not knowing what was gonna happen, the suspense, the fear for these two characters, the freaking angst, ahh! My heart could barely take it. I'm here I'm alive but I honestly don't know how. I'm ready for more though!

Thank you L. J. Shen for the most amazing birthday gift I could ask for. I loved getting lost in these characters and being wrecked by their story. Emotional reads are my favorite and you obliterated this one. This book and these characters are so damn special. With every new book you write, I'm more amazed with your talent and your brain. This one is for sure a new favorite. Pretty Reckless will stick with me forever.

Cover Reveal: The Man I Can’t Have, Shanora Williams

Coming soon from NYT best selling author, Shanora Williams! This angsty romance will burn up your kindle! Take a look at this amazing cover for The Man I Can't Have!

Photographer: Wong Sim
Model: Mitchell Wick
Cover Design by Cover It Designs



It started as a simple search for a landscape designer…

I wanted a beautiful backyard for my new home and my neighbors suggested I look into Ward Landscaping & Design.

The owner had no pictures of himself on his website, just a portfolio of nice outdoor sitting areas, pools, and vibrant gardens that I’d always dreamed of having.

Of course I hired him.

I expected to meet an average guy, but Mr. Marcel Ward is far from your average man. He’s handsome, and well-built, and his smile—though a rare trait—is truly infectious.

He’s every woman’s dream—a handsome, older man who doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to create something beautiful all because of his passion for it. Unfortunately, that lucky woman can’t be me.

Although Mr. Ward tests my limits, quickens my breath, and makes my heart skip a beat when he’s around, I’ve promised to devote myself to my husband.

So why am I falling for a man I know I can’t have?

Don't miss the conclusion of the Ward Duet in June!

Review: The Perfect First, Maya Hughes

Title: The Perfect First

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Najla Qamber, Qamber Designs

Release Date: April 25, 2019

“How long do you last in bed?” Those were her first words to me, swiftly followed up with, “And how big would you say you are?”

Cue the record scratching, what?!

Persephone Alexander. Math genius. Lover of blazers. The only girl I know who can make Heidi braids look sexy as hell. And she’s on a mission. Lose her virginity by the end of the semester.

I walked in on her interview session for potential candidates (who even does that?) and saw straight through her brave front. She’s got a list of Firsts to accomplish like she’s only got months to live. I’ve decided to be her guide for all her firsts except one. Someone’s got to keep her out of trouble. I have one rule, no sex. We even shook on it.

I’ll help her find the right guy for the job. Someone like her doesn’t need someone like me and my massive...baggage for her first time.

Drinking at a bar. Check.

Partying all night. Double check.

Skinny dipping. Triple check.

She’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met. The walls I’d put up around my heart are slowly crumbling with each touch that sets fire to my soul.

I’m the first to bend the rules. One electrifying kiss changes everything and suddenly I don’t want to be her first, I want to be her only. But her plan was written before I came onto the scene and now I’m determined to get her to re-write her future with me.

Maya Hughes everyone. Writing another hit sports romance series. The Kings were amazing but so are the Wolfs. Man oh man, I am going to enjoy this series so much. 

Persephone is such a particular character. Math nerd, very sheltered, unexperienced and lonely. She's an angel with clipped wings at her father's hands. It was so sad to read about her wanting things for herself and being forced to do what her father wanted for her. But Seph wants to make the most of her last months at Fulton U and so she takes the plunge and makes an ad to find someone for her to lose her virginity with. Let me tell you guys, this girl might have been sheltered but she has balls of steel. I loved that about her. She was a fierce woman breaking her shell. 

In comes Reese, they meet by chance and their first encounter is hilarious and a sure meet cute in my book. This chance encounter ends up changing their whole lives. Reese never forgets the girl he met at the café nor what she told him and so he goes on to help her experience the world. The only rule he has is that he's not popping her cherry. They are to be friends only. Except the idea has been there since the beginning and with the chemistry these two have, it's almost impossilble to resist each other but Derek is good at resisting. At least for a while.

I loved that by being Reese's friend, Steph gained a whole group of friends, Reese's team mates and best friends. And let me tell you these guys are so great and fun, they seriously rival the Kings with their awesomeness and trust me that's saying something cuz I LOVE THE KINGS. I love how they took Steph in and all bonded with her from the get go. On a polar opposite, we have Steph's roommate, more like enemy. That girl my goodness, I wanted to slap the bich so bad. She was such a mean girl and so damn rude and unconsiderate, I despised her. On the other hand, I did love how Reese defended Steph and wanted her to stand up for herself. Gah, just remembering how Reese was with her is giving me butterflies. These two, guys they are so darn cute. I adored them.

Maya introduced us to another world, one bound to be epic and so darn fun to spend a few hours in. I started this book on Sunday, four hours before GoT's episode and only stopped reading because I wanted to watch the episode so bad. After it ended I picked up the book again and stayed awake until I finished it at 6 a.m. I can tell you with absolute certainty that this hadn't happened since last summer. That's how much I loved this story and just couldn't nor wanted to put it down. It was so entartaing and sweet. So many swoon moments. Reese is so damn cute I swear, I love how he falls completely in love with Steph little by little with each adventure they go on. I love book with this kind of plot and this one just became one of my favs. 

I cannot wait for more books in this series. I hope Reese's closest friends all get their own book because I'll be here for it and I'll love it very much.

Review: Baby Mine, Kennedy Fox

I saw her first.

Blonde. Gorgeous. Feisty.

I was smitten. 

But it didn’t matter because she chose him and
he was my best friend and roommate. I’d never be able to compete with that, so
I pushed her away instead. It was easy when she lived hours away, and I didn’t
have to see her every day, but then she moved in with us. 

Now, I’m screwed.

To her singing in the shower every morning,
dancing in the kitchen while she makes coffee, and doing yoga in our living
room, I can’t stop thinking about her in all the wrong ways. She’s not mine and
never will be, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to push her against a wall
and claim her mouth.

She’s constantly on me for making messes,
bringing chicks home every weekend, and being a smartass when their PDA gets on
my nerves. Considering neither of them know how I feel, it’s not fair for the
way I act toward them. I should move out so I can get over her for good;
however, the selfish part of me can’t let go. 

But then the unthinkable happens... 

When my best friend dies in a motorcycle
accident, the two of us are left to grieve our loss together. Instead of
pushing her away, I pull her closer. 

Just as we come to terms with our new reality,
she finds out she’s pregnant with his baby. 

And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my

I still haven't gotten my sh*t together to write this so please bare with me. I have no words. Y'all must know by know I'm an angst wh*re, well this book got my heart going or more like the opposite... it almost killed it. My heart could barely take all the angst and the unrequited feelings and Hunter's suffering (my poor baby) and then his best friend's death and how he sacrificed his feelings for Lennon... my god I am almost dead...

I fell a little in love with Hunter while reading Forever Mine. He was super fun and I loved his relationship with Hayden but back then you could already see that the situation he was in was the worse. But in Baby Mine you get to live it alongside him and my heart hurt so bad for him. Being in love with best friend's girl, getting to see and hear them together everyday, thinking he didn't deserve her... (I'm listening to the playlist while I write this and When I Look At You just came on and I'm about to cry)... it was pretty hard. But god you get to see how much of a good guy he actually is and guys he is the best, even when he does everything to annoy and rile Lennon up. This guy completely won me over in a blink. He deserves everything good in the world. I want to give him a huge bear hug.

I can't and don't want to give spoilers so I'm being super vague and can't go into details besides what's already given in the blurb. Just know that while this book is super ansgty and you'll feel it all as Hunter and Lennon are feeling, it is a beautiful story about loss, grief, love and sacrifice. Kennedy Fox might have almost killed us with this first part of the duet but they gave us two wonderful characters that will stay with us forever and I have no doubt their story will be worth all the pain. These two will get their HEA and I am waiting for it. I want Hunter to be the happiest guy in the world, okay? He deserves it. And I hope everything works out for Lennon too, she deserves a break from the world.

I don't know how they do it but with each book, I love their writing more and more. I feel like this duet will be one of my favorite things they have ever written. I can totally feel it, I mean book 1 was WOW. That last chapter was like 3 blows right after the other, I hadn't even grasped the first one and I was already being hit with the second and then the third. I wasn't ready for it to end, not even close. So I'll be here dying until book 2 hits my kindle and I get answers and to see Hunter & Lennon get their much deserved HEA.

Book 2 in the Hunter & Lennon Duet Synopsis coming soon!

Review: Pieces of Us, A. L. Jackson

A second chance stand-alone romance in A.L. Jackson's Confessions of the Heart Series.

"I absolutely adored all of the sweet emotion, angst, and just all of the feelings “Pieces of Us” inspired. The characters and their growth had me hooked from the first page. Read it. You will not regret it.”
~NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author Kylie Scott
My loves!! PIECES OF US IS LIVE!!! I am so freaking excited, I can hardly stand it! This book is EVERYTHING!
✓ Second-chance romance
✓ Sexy AF hero
✓ All the feels
Maxon Chambers has a way of stealing all the attention.
All my affection, and all my dreams.
What I needed to remember was he’d stolen my good judgment and my virginity, too.
When he broke up with me, I ran across the country and swore I’d never return to Broadshire Rim.
But here I am, thirteen years later. 
Maxon is all grown up.
Sexier than sin and more tempting than ever.
A detective on the Charleston force, he lives on the outside of safety, devoted to protecting the people of his city.
But with the way he’s looking at me now? I’m pretty sure what needs protecting is my heart.
Can we mend the pieces of us? Or will he leave my heart shattered forever . . .

Oh my god guys! I don't even have words so this might be a short review but Mack.. oh my sweet Mack... he owns my heart. His and Izzy story was angst filled and burned me slow to the ground with the love pouring from their souls and the hurt these two carried over their past.
It was a beautiful love story and oh so sweet. My heart was so warm while reading this book. The love between them and the love Izzy had for her kids and then how fast and how hard Mack loved them too. I could cry over how sweet it all was. I loved them all so much.

Honestly, although there was a lot of hurt and a huge secret between Izzy and Mack, you could feel how much they still loved and yearned for each other from their first encounter once Izzy is back in town. She tried to stay away from him, tried to pretend she didn't love him and would never give him a second chance but she was powerless to fight their connection, specially after she told him her big secret. Oh my poor heart felt so much for Mack. Even though he's the one who did Izzy wrong in the past, you have no doubt from the very beginning he did it out of love, because he loved her so much he was willing to let her go so she could have a better life. And when he learns that he was deprived of much more than the love of his life for the past 12 years... it's heartbreaking to see him suffer.

And the friendship between Mack, Ian and Jace was stronger then ever! Their little moments and teases were so funny and cute. They all go on a triple date at some point and omg seeing them all together is AMAZING. How happy Ian and Jace are for Mack is so damn sweet. I love their friendship.
I just honestly loved this book, everything from the relationship when they were kids, the one they had now and all othe relationships in the book. It was the perfect conclusion to this wonderful series. It tied all three books so well and that ENDING. I am not gonna lie, I teared up while reading it.

What you can expect in Pieces of Us:

  • second chance romance
  • a lot of angst
  • slow burn
  • broken hero
  • mystery
  • and a whole lot of love!
A. L. Jackson's writing is just as amazing as ever. I don't know what it was about this story but it pulled me in from the get go and it was impossible not to love these characters to pieces

Don't miss the awesome giveaway for the Pieces of Us release! It's the first two books from the Confessions of the Heart Series + Kindle Fire + Polaroid Camera + All the Goods! 

Ahhh I can't wait for you to experience this story! I'm so insanely proud of it! I can't wait to hear what you think!
