Electric Blue Love by: Rebecca Jenshak - Release w/Review


Title: Electric Blue Love


Author: Rebecca Jenshak


Genre: New Adult Romance


Release Date: June 18, 2018






Court
Here’s a thing I learned a long time ago… guys and girls don’t think about relationships the same way. Especially in college. So, when I caught the girl sitting next to me on the plane reading a magazine article on how to get out of the friend zone, I did something I never do – I got involved.

One look into her electric blue eyes and the darkness inside of me faded.
Light and hope radiated from her like a neon sign.

Guys like me know how to get the girl, but we rarely get to keep them.

Bianca
Girls like me fade into the background. Nice, quiet, smart girls without the latest trendy clothes. My friendship with Court started as an opportunity to get inside the male mind, but it turned into so much more.

His touch sent current coursing through my veins.
His kiss jolted my heart.

But here is something I learned a long time ago… you can’t force people to love you back. No matter how much you long for them.






AMAZON US / UK / CAAU




Loved this book! It’s fun and sweet with a bit of good girl v. bad boy. And the twist at the end…..just amazing!

Court had a terrible childhood and even though his adult life has been better he’s had to work extra hard and be extra determined to get where he is today. 

Bianca, for the most part, has had a great life. She has a wonderful loving family and even though money is always an issue they were happy. She goes off to college with the intent to help her family one day. She’s gonna make a good career with a good salary and help her parents with her younger brothers college.

In order to do this she’s going to have to make some really hard decisions. Decisions between the man she loves and her family. Can Court come to understand the true meaning of family even though he never had one? Can Bianca be a little bit selfish and think of her own needs for once? There has to be a middle ground, right?

I loved the way this book started and ended!!!!! And the middle was awesome too!! The writing is wonderful and the characters deep and amazing! It’s funny and sad but romantic and sweet.

Highly Recommend!!!!







Flying coach was bullshit. The crying babies and the cramped seats weren’t even the worst of it, although admittedly not a perk. The real problem with sitting in the back of the plane was the comradery among the other passengers. In first-class no one tried to chat about the weather or ask the dreaded “Are you visiting or returning home?”. No, in first class we sat in our large, reclining seats with plenty of leg room, cold drink on the tray table, laptop open, and we minded our own damn business.

I didn’t sit in first class because of some ego trip where I needed to flaunt my better than average salary around. I did it because I preferred the silence. Also, I traveled so much it was almost always a free upgrade. Not today.

At least I’d been lucky enough to snag an aisle seat. Unlike the girl sitting in 8B. She didn’t look up as I shrugged off my suit jacket and placed it with my carry-on bag in the overhead bin. She stared down at the magazine in her hands, a pen gripped in her mouth.

Pink lips were wrapped around the blue pen and her eyebrows were drawn together in deep concentration. The only indication I had that she knew her seat neighbor had arrived was the way she shielded the magazine with an elbow as I slid into my seat. Her stance reminded me of those smart kids who strategically placed their arm around the edge of the desk so that no one could cheat off their test answers.

Intrigued, I settled in and peeked over her arm and down at the glossy pages only catching the headline: How to Get Out of the Friend Zone and Land the Guy of Your Dreams. My eyes trailed up to the young woman so enthralled with such a ludicrous title and I studied her closer.

She was beautiful, but not in an in your face way. I definitely couldn’t see her being banned to the friend zone. Her blonde hair was piled up in a bun on the top of her head, face clear and tanned even in the dreary March weather we’d been having. A faded, oversized floral dress was worn over leggings and sparkly shoes completed a look that was a cross between a preppy sorority girl and an artsy free spirit. She dressed in a way that told me she didn’t know she was beautiful or if she knew, she just didn’t care enough to conform to a style.

Judging by her reading material I was sold on the first option.
As the other passengers filed into their seats, I found myself intrigued and unable to focus on anything but 8B. I glanced over politely, hoping she’d look up and make eye contact so I could get a better look at her. No luck. She kept her focus on the garbage reading material in front of her as the cabin doors were closed and the flight attendants prepared for departure. When we’d reached twenty thousand feet and she still hadn’t so much as side-eyed me, I gave up and pulled out my laptop to do some work.

I stared at the reports in front of me for five minutes, not reading a word, before I gave up and closed the laptop with a snap. She jumped, startled, and I turned to give her my attention. When her eyes finally found mine, I inhaled sharply.

Bright blue eyes were outlined with a heavy hand on the eyeliner or eyeshadow, whatever it was called, in a striking blue. I couldn’t decide if was a fashion statement or a fashion disaster, but her eyes held mine captive and my lips parted to speak, only no words came out. We stared for a moment too long, neither saying a word, until she glanced down at her exposed reading and flipped it shut.

Safe Haven by: Red Phoenix - Release w/Review



Title: Safe Haven

Series: Captain's Duet #1

Author: Red Phoenix

Genre: Standalone Duet - Military Romance

Release Date: June 12, 2018








Love has no limits…

I’m known as Captain. I’ve accepted my title as a war hero but I still carry the guilt—until I meet her. She is like no other submissive I’ve met. In her eyes, I see the man I once was.

There’s only one problem.
I can never be what her young heart needs.

****

If I hadn’t met Brie Bennett with her offer of submissive training, I’m unsure where I would be today.

At the Training Center, I meet Captain, a distinguished Dom who is the man of my dreams—my safe haven.

But I have a problem. 
Captain won’t collar me.

*Safe Haven is the first book of a standalone duet. It is a military romance with BDSM elements. This is a spin-off from the series, Brie’s Submission.




AMAZON US / UK / CAAU




Ok. Sooooo I didn’t realize this was a spin-off of Brie’s Submission. Totally my fault and I’m mentioning this because I felt completely lost the first half of the book. Mainly because I couldn’t see how in the world going from 1970’s to 2012 would ever work. 

However, work it did. It came to me so quickly I’m sure there was a lightbulb over my head!! I LOVED her series, The Submissive Training Center!!!! This spin-off is amazing!! It gives us more back story on Brie and Captain.

I would highly recommend reading that series first. Mainly because you won’t be sorry-it’s amazing and because this book will make way more sense if you do. 

Lets talk Red for a moment. WOW!! I mean totally amazing author and if you haven’t read any of her books….well you just have to!!!

Very Highly Recommend!!!







Over Two Million readers have enjoyed Red’s stories.

USA Today Bestselling Author Red Phoenix is an award-winning romance author who gained popularity with her series, Brie's Submission.
She also happens to be a submissive in real life and began writing Brie’s story so people everywhere could find out just how fun BDSM can be.

King of Hearts (Old Money Roulette, Book Two) by Natalie Bennett: Release + Review




Title: King of Hearts
           Series: Old Money Roulette Trilogy, Book Two
Author: Natalie Bennett
Genre: Dark Erotic Romance
Publish Date: June 9, 2018
Review Source: Enticing Journey Book Promotions



His secrets. Her sanity

The road to hell...
Well, there is no road to hell.
I already live there.

I was forced to partake in a rigged game of seduction, manipulation, and murder.

Mateo Remmington is my formidable opponent.

He makes the devil look like a saint.

He’s immoral.
He's ruthless.
He's a goddamn king.

King of a clandestine empire who sits on a throne covered in innocents’ blood.

I’ve become his obsession.
He’s becoming my deadly addiction.

And if I make one wrong move he’ll end my life.


This story has me so unbelievably frustrated. It is well written and has a great backstory, although it didn’t give me what I was looking for. Lots of open ended questions that I’m wanting answers to immediately. However, I understand the depths to this madness. Natalie Bennett is brilliant and knows how to lure you in and keep you tied to her trilogy. Mateo is the lead male that I want to kick in the nards. He is an ass and a powerful one at that. Elena is entrapped in a deep trance when it comes to him. It seems that she loses all willpower when Mateo comes around. Finding her sister is her end goal, but when Mateo craves Elena, the further that goal gets. How will this all play out? Will Elena see Mateo for who he is or will she continue to play his game of Roulette?

Playing the waiting game is going to be the death of me. I can’t wait for the conclusion to this trilogy, with Ace of Spades.





In the Series:






Natalie Bennett is the creator of erotic stories that always come with a warning label. She writes about depraved alpha a**holes and women that love to hate them. Her books don't follow any specific tropes, have no set word counts, and tend to deviate from traditional HEA's.

When she isn't in front of her computer she's spending time with her husband and their three little boys.

Natalie is an avid fan of caramel frappes, horror movies, Shameless, and of course, reading.

You can find Natalie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
