Queen Move_FNL_sized
The boy who always felt like mine is now the man I can't have…
Dig a little and you'll find photos of me in the bathtub with Ezra Stern.
Get your mind out of the gutter. We were six months old.
Pry and one of us might confess we saved our first kiss for each other.
The most clumsy, wet, sloppy . . . spectacular thirty seconds of my adolescence.
Get into our business and you'll see two families, closer than blood, torn apart in an instant.
Twenty years later, my "awkward duckling" best friend from childhood,
the boy no one noticed, is a man no one can ignore.
Finer. Fiercer. Smarter.
Taken.
Tell me it's wrong.
Tell me the boy who always felt like mine is now the man I can’t have.
When we find each other again, everything stands in our way--secrets, lies, promises.
But we didn't come this far to give up now.
And I know just the move to make if I want to make him mine.
**QUEEN MOVE will have the special release week price of $3.99. After that, the price will increase.**


Kennedy Ryan is an amazing writer. This book is another testament to her writing prowess. An amazing story of power, that encompasses all areas of life. Love, career, and personal. 
In this book we meet Tru and Ezra. Two friends whose known each other since 6 mos old. This is a tale as old as time, boy meets girl, boy and girl become best of friends, boy and girl fall for each other, boy and share first kiss at a school dance, then boy is ripped away from girl when the parents get in an argument. They don't see each other again until 20 years later. 
At a tragic event in Tru's life she comes face to face with the little boy she knew so long ago. Except this isn't a little boy anymore. By all definitions, Ezra is a MAN... ALL MAN. 
Unfortunately, just as the years passed them by life also happened to each of them. Ezra has attachments that mean that they cannot pick up where they left off. Only through the power of will, sacrifice and love can they over come all the obstacles life throws at them. 
True to Ms. Ryan's brand it covers important topics that are so relevant in today's time. Tackling issues such as fertility, blended families, infidelity and acceptance. 
I love when books are smart AND sexy. It does something for me like no other. I love strong female leads and Tru is a "true" Bawse. 
This book will not disappoint and just when you think you can release and exhale the twists will have you gasping instead. Then when you're all ripped apart and going to give up hope, it stitches you back up again. 
An amazing adventure awaits you!!!

The Sugar Queen of Emerson Pass by Tess Thompson: Release Blitz + Review



Title: Sugar Queen of Emerson Pass
Author: Tess Thompson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publish Date: May 19, 2020
Review Source: L Woods PR








True love requires commitment, and many times unending sacrifice. . .

At the tender age of eighteen, Brandi Vargas watched the love of her life drive out of Emerson Pass, presumably for good. Though she and Trapper Barnes dreamed of attending college and starting their lives together, she was sure she would only get in the way of Trapper's future as a hockey star. Breaking his heart, and her own in the process, was the only way to ensure he pursued his destiny. Her fate was the small town life she'd always known, her own bakery, and an endless stream of regret.

After a decade of playing hockey, a single injury ended Trapper Barnes' career. And while the past he left behind always haunted him, he still returns to Emerson Pass to start the next chapter of his life in the place his ancestors built more than a century before. But when he discovers that the woman who owns the local bakery is the girl who once shattered his dreams, the painful secret she's been harboring all these years threatens to turn Trapper's idyllic small town future into a disaster. Will it take a forest fire threatening the mountain village to force Trapper and Brandi to confront their history? And in the wake of such a significant loss, will the process of rebuilding their beloved town help them find each other, and true happiness, once again?

Fast forward to the present day and enjoy this contemporary second chance romance set in the small town of Emerson Pass, featuring the descendants of the characters you loved from USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson's The School Mistress

A portion of the proceeds will benefit The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation!

Sweet. That’s the main way to describe this book. It’s extremely romantic. Kind of old school romance and chivalry is not dead in this book.

Trapper & Brandi get their second chance to have the life they were always supposed to have. She pushed him away for his own good and it was the right thing to do. But it hurt them both extremely. He was forced to leave her, and she was forced to make decisions way above her eighteen year old mind and heart could handle.

He’s had his career and she managed to make a life for herself. Neither were all that happy. Can they go back to where they were? Are they still soulmates?

This book is so incredibly well written. This could definitely be read by 14 years old & up. Loved this book. A sweet change of pace is good every so often.

Highly Recommend!

Southern Storm (Southern Series, Book 3) by Natasha Madison: Release Blitz + Review



Title: Southern Storm
Series: Southern Series, Book Three
Author: Natasha Madison
Genre: Friends-to-Lovers Contemporary Romance
Publish Date: May 19, 2020
Review Source: Wildfire Marketing Solutions



Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South

Savannah
I’m the one who broke up the golden couple. The woman people still whisper about, point at, and give dirty looks to.
Did I sleep with the prom king? No. Did I sleep with the town's golden boy on vacation from college? Yes.
Did I believe that he was going to marry me? Wholeheartedly.
Did he? Not even close. He got engaged right in front of me and then his father threw two hundred dollars at me and told me to take the trash out.
So, I raised my son in a town where people love him because they think that his father is the sheriff.
It was going great; everything was working out till my lie got out.

Beau
I was getting ready to take over the mayoral office from my father, who was my hero.
Until I heard the secret he hoped would stay buried forever.
My brother has a son, not just any son but a son with the woman who was my best friend.
The woman I secretly have loved from the moment she stood up to me and broke my nose in kindergarten.
I need to protect her and in order to do that, we need to get married.
Too bad her nightmare is my dream come true.



Southern Storm is such a free spirited, down home, small town feel type of read. The characters speak to you in volumes, and the story-line is quite relatable. This is the third book in the series, however; it is not necessary to read the books prior. I am positive that it will add to the story, although this was the first book that I read in the series. Not once did I feel lost or felt that I was missing anything. This attests to the talent of Natasha Madison. Her writing is so meticulous that she never skips a beat.

I absolutely fell in love with Savannah and Beau. Childhood friends that want more, although neither one of them realizes what the other wants. What I will say is that Beau would do anything in his power to make Savannah happy. He has a heart of gold and wears it on his sleeve. There are many, many obstacles that they need to overcome and solve a crime amongst those hurdles. Natasha Madison is a new to me author, although I am anxiously awaiting the next in the series … Southern Sunrise.








When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four-inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...

The Land Where Sinners Atone by V.F. Mason: Release Blitz + Review



Title: The Land Where Sinners Atone
Author: V.F. Mason
Genre: Dark Enemies-to-Lovers Romantic Suspense
Publish Date: May 15, 2020
Review Source: L.Woods PR




Once upon a time she became mine.
Mine to destroy.

I used to have it all.
Successful career.
Loving husband who adored me.
A future full of possibilities.
A perfect fairytale nothing could break.

Until one day, life as I knew it was crushed into tiny little pieces.
I was charged with a murder I didn't commit.
And no matter how much I begged for justice, no one believed me.
Least of all the man who promised to stand by me through anything.

And the husband of the woman I allegedly killed?
He vowed for me to live in a hell on earth–and even then, it wouldn’t be enough to atone for my sin.
His words rang in my ears every single day as life became an endless nightmare.
With time, I grew to hate him so much my heart burned from it.

Until three years later new evidence was found.
And everyone believed my truth.

I might be free but I’m still part of a twisted game the monster is playing.
And the only way I can survive in it?
Trust a man who I promised to hate till my last dying breath.



WHOA!! The Land Where Sinners Atone is one gobsmacked delicious ride. I felt like I was reading an episode of Criminal Minds. V.F. Mason’s mind is like brilliance overload. The mystery, the sinister thoughts, the suspense, the chemistry, and down to the characters. My goodness does this story deserve 10 stars.

The fact that we get not only Zachary and Phoenix, but also Lachlan, Madman, and Micaden? Be still my heart!!! I fell in love with Ms. Mason long ago and she continues to keep me falling. I can never imagine another topping the last and yet, she seems to do so. If you’re looking for an epic, edge of your seat read, pick up TLWSA. You’ll be thanking me for months to come!!







V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied film-making and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen. Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it. When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.

Boomer by: K.L. Savage - Release Blitz w/Review



Title: Boomer


Series: Ruthless Kings MC #2


Author: K.L. Savage


Genre: Contemporary MC Romance


Release Date: May 15, 2020


I left my life behind me.
My sister.
My MC.

I need room to breathe and room to think, to make my own choices and to own my mistakes.

Bitterness and anger cloud my judgement when it comes to the MC. What is so great about them that I can’t have on the outside? What is so great about the patch?

Death?
Blood?
Fear?

That is all I’ve experienced with the club. I hated to leave my sister. She’s the only reason I stayed as long as I did. But it’s time for something new. And yet, I find myself searching for trouble, wanting—needing to be someone’s savior.

I have the best poker face, but when I lay down my winning hand and they shove a girl at me, bound and scared, for my prize, I know I’ve landed in the middle of something bigger than me. 

The girl? Scarlett Rose.
My reason for being.
My clarity.

I just have to prove it to her. She needs protection, and I’ll die before they hurt her again.


AMAZON US / UK / CA / AU



LOVED!!! MC is one of my favorite genre's and this one did not disappoint!

After reading Reaper, I was hooked on this series. Boomer is just fantastic. He's so broken and "in his own head" and that makes him so relatable.

I loved Scarlett too. She's been put through a horrible experience and was saved but she tries so hard to be strong and to be what Boomer needs her to be. She's tried so hard to be good and do the right thing in her life. Now she has to be bad, but in a very good way, and bring good to Boomer's life.

Boomer struggles with forms of OCD. He gets wrapped up in his head and the thoughts he has are terrible. Scarlett brings him out and he brings her a little something bad boyish. In the best of ways. They are truly in love.

Will they be able to keep each other? Are they strong enough to get through the upcoming storms together? 

Again, LOVED!!! The writing and the characters are amazing!! Can't wait till the next one!!!

"Boomer,” she says again. “My Boom,” Scarlett mumbles, trying to bury her face in my chest again. My heart trips and falls over itself, and a small piece of my darkness turns to light. The constant intrusive thoughts slow and come to a stop.


Clarity. I’m not sure how long it will last, but however long I have, I want to spend it holding the woman I’m falling quickly in love with.

Her Boom.

I like that. I want to be her everything.

“What are you doing to me, Scarlett?” I whisper over the top of her head, running my fingers through the raven black hair. She’s so perfect, everything I’ve ever dreamed of. It’s like someone reached into my head and plucked her from my imagination, then sculpted and carved her out of the finest silk just for me.

Scarlett is a gift, a fucking present, but for what? I don’t deserve to unwrap her, to smile when she bears herself to me when the time is right.

K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.


If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.
