The Temptation of Cinderella by: Lisa London

Title: The Temptation of Cinderella

Series: Cinderella & Her 7 Guards #1

Author: Lisa London

Genre: Reverse Harem Romance

Release Date: May 2, 2019

Pumpkin Spice lattes, shopping for the perfect shoe, I’m a simple girl. I never thought I could find a great man, but now I have seven. Seven smoking hot brothers who want to satisfy me. But am I woman enough to handle them all?

The Temptation of Cinderella is the first of three books in the Cinderella & Her Seven Guards series. Come hang with Cinderella and her friend Snow from the best selling Snow & Seven SEALs series.

Well...I really kinda liked this book in spite of my first thoughts. Which is a good thing.

My first thoughts were pretty bad. Seven men? Smoking hot septuplets, one girl, no family and only one friend with a dead end job? Oh and the men run a billion dollar company and share everything....including their woman.

However, with anyone else writing this, it may have turned out very badly. But I really did enjoy it. It's very hot, very sweet and well.....VERY HOT!!!!

Each male character is defined fairly well, although in this first book we really only get into three of them. Which makes the book even more enjoyable since there is the anticipation of the others joining.

There is also a definite story line which makes it much more exciting for the reader also. I love Emma!! She's sweet and innocent but also has a backbone when she needs it.

This book may not be all that relatable, but even that made me enjoy it very much! Sometimes a girl just wants to be a princess and have all the seven men rescue her!!! :)

Highly Recommend!

Bad Influence (Bad Habits) by Charleigh Rose: Review Tour + Excerpt + Review

Title: Bad Influence
Series: Bad Habits
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: June 13, 2019


When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.

I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.

Jesse Shepherd.

Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.

You know the type.

But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.

Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.

The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.

Until I slammed headfirst into his sea of lies.


I blew my shot.

Pissed everything away—college, lacrosse, my future—only to end up right back where I started in River’s Edge.

I was content to revel in my misery, spending my days drowning in a bottomless pit of booze and girls.

Until I saw her.

Allison Parrish.

Beautiful. Sarcastic. Perpetual bad attitude.

The pretty little distraction from the shit show that was my life.

But the sins of my past were closing in on me, and I learned the hard way that nothing gold can stay.

I am so excited to finally have Jesse’s story. He worked a special place in my heart when I first read about him in Bad Habit. His smart mouth, smirk and idgaf attitude makes him the ultimate bad boy. The one everyone wants but won’t admit because he came from the wrong side of the tracks.

When Jesse meets Allie, you know there’s something there, but she’s so guarded. Allie is determined to keep her walls up and not travel down that road. She has saved herself for that special someone and she doesn’t think Jesse is the one. However, will Jesse worm his way into her heart and make her, his? Or will Jess just use Allie for another notch in his bed post? He is a ladies man, after all.

Charleigh Rose is one of my top 10 favorite authors. She’s one that I will one-click without reading the synopsis. Her writing is so descriptive and detailed, and you know that it’s going to be a chart topper. For contemporary romance, she has the ability to captivate her audience and pull you into her world. I can always visualize each and every character and that ability? Priceless. I can’t wait to see what she has up next!

“Did you hear that?” I ask. Moving in slowly, he cages me in, bracing his right arm on the wall above my head, his left hand by my hip. He brings his lips close to my ear and I fight the shiver that rolls through me. “It’s probably just your admirer,” he says, his voice hushed and husky. I swallow hard, looking over his shoulder as he nuzzles closer, his nose skimming my neck, then down to my collarbone. My pulse pounds in my ears as he moves back up, his mouth brushing across my cheek, stopping at my parted lips. “Is this convincing?” He asks. He’s so close that I can feel his breath on my lips, and I realize that I want him to do it. I want him to kiss me. I give a slight shake of my head in response. “No?” He smirks, knowing exactly what he’s doing to me. His left hand leaves the wall to curl around my hip and he presses his chest to mine. “How about this?” “Almost,” I whisper. I wet my lips and the tip of my tongue nearly grazes his bottom lip. His expression goes from playful to heated in an instant, then he’s closing the final distance. It’s soft at first, just a brush of his lips against mine, but soon he’s cupping my face with both hands, tilting my head back as his tongue sweeps into my mouth, his movements confident and skilled. Unhurried and unyielding. My hands find his shirt, pulling him closer as his tongue fucks my mouth. Because that’s exactly what this is. This isn’t kissing. Or maybe it is, and I’ve been kissing the wrong boys. Jesse groans, fitting a firm thigh between my legs, and the need bubbling inside me threatens to boil over at the sensation. But all too soon, he pulls back, leaving me breathless. “Was that convincing enough?”
Charleigh Rose lives in Narnia with her husband and two young children. She’s hopelessly devoted to unconventional love and pizza. When she isn’t reading or mom-ing, she’s writing moody, broody, swoony romance.

His First Lady by Beth Fred: Release Blitz + Review

Title: His First Lady
Series:  Capitol Hill Series
Author: Beth Fred
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 18, 2019
Publisher: Limitless Publishing

My campaign manager says no one wants a bachelor in the White House and this election is drawing near. The solution? To hold a cattle call, and what’s up for auction? Me.

Lucky for me I cross paths with Mandy Buchanan—a feisty blonde who isn’t afraid to call me a jerk to my face. But she’s in quite the predicament herself. Mandy needs money since her dad refuses to pay for a frivolous degree. So, we strike a bargain.

I get a wife, and she gets her degree.

The deal was simple. No complications. No problems.

While Mandy pretends to be the perfect First Lady, I start noticing her in a way that has nothing to do with politics or practicality. Those curves. Her eyes. The way her face lights up when she talks about her work. She’s beautiful.

Suddenly she’s no longer just a pawn to help me get into the White House. She’s more than that, and I no longer want to play pretend. I want her to be mine in every way.

Now I just need to convince her that our sham marriage might just be the real deal.

WOW! Loved Erik & Mandy so much!

Erik is on the road to the white house and all that entails. Mandy is kind of a ditz but super smart. She's a little dramatic and puts her foot in her mouth a lot, but I enjoyed both characters very much.

The story was great and the characters were relatable. Told in dual points of view, which I love, and although fast-paced sometimes it seemed to be too fast. The ending was pretty fast.

Overall, I loved the writing and the book itself. I would recommend it and will be looking for more books by Beth Fred for sure.

Highly Recommend!!!!

Meet Beth Fred! That's me! I'm a full time ELF keeper and part time writer/blogger/writing instructor. I like my tea hot, my romance sweet, and my heroes chivalrous. Heroes hold open doors, refer to you as ma'am, make promises they keep, and aren't afraid to profess their undying love. It's not breakfast if there aren't carbs (at least, not in the South). Fajitas, carnitas, and churros are just few of my favorite things. Bet you can't guess where I'm from ;)
