Gypsy King by: Devney Perry - Release w/Review




The former Tin Gypsy motorcycle club has everyone in Clifton Forge, Montana convinced they’ve locked their clubhouse doors and ripped off their patches. Everyone but Bryce Ryan. There’s more happening at the club’s garage than muscle car restorations and Harley rebuilds. Her instincts are screaming there’s a story—one she’s going to tell.

As the new owner of the small town’s newspaper, Bryce is hungry for more than birth announcements and obituaries. When a woman is brutally killed and all signs point to the Tin Gypsies, Bryce is determined to expose the club and their leader, Kingston “Dash” Slater, as murderers.

Bryce bests Dash match after match, disappointed her rugged and handsome opponent turns out to be an underwhelming adversary. Secrets are exposed. Truths defeat lies. Bryce is poised to win this battle in a landslide.

Then Dash breaks all the rules and tips the scales.

One kiss, and she’s fighting to save more than just her story.


She’s fighting to save her heart from the Gypsy King.


Loved it!! Its mixture of romance, spunk, work ethic, suspense and danger.

Bryce is no holds barred when it comes to her career.....well....pretty much everything in her life.

The secrets they both have and how everything unwinds is just amazing. The characters are mature and wonderful! Just a testament to how well the writing is.

Highly Recommend!

Beauty and the Badge (Charlotte's Cove, Book 1) by Ella Fox: Release Blitz + Giveaway + Review



Title: Beauty and the Badge
Series: Charlotte’s Cove, Book One
Author: Ella Fox
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publish Date: November 12, 2019
Review Source: Give Me Books Promotions



After being held up at gunpoint, Ashley Colton realizes that life in the big city isn’t for her. She decides to take the biggest risk of her life and move to Charlotte's Cove, the small seaside sanctuary where she’s vacationed every summer since childhood.

Everything falls perfectly into place until her first day of work, where she meets her new boss Tyler Jameson, the chief of police. The chemistry between Ashley and Tyler is instant and powerful, but for reasons of their own, both are cautious about jumping in.

When a woman from Tyler’s past surfaces, Ashley retreats, making Tyler realize that if he’s going to show Ashley she’s the only one who has his attention, then he needs to stop being hesitant and put everything on the line.

Is the badge powerful enough to win the beauty who holds his heart?



       Beauty and the Badge is my first Ella Fox book. It’s a sweet story of rediscovering oneself after a change of event in life. Loss, love and rediscovery. Going back to the town that you were raised in brings back many great memories, even if that means dealing with the towns no-good troublemaker.

The story was great. Lots of background for the characters and the town. Meeting and working for Tyler, the Chief of Police, seems to be exactly what Ashley was looking for. A chance to start again and hopefully make a love connection. However, I found Tyler’s character confusing. When meeting and hanging out, he seemed like a sophisticated, yet down to earth guy. Only, during their times of passion and sometimes just random talking, his language was not in tune with his character. It seemed thuggish and just not who his character had been portrayed to be. It perplexed me and made me not like his character as much as I originally did. This is why my rating wasn’t higher. I was just put off by the use of his language. It wasn’t the dirtiness of it, because that doesn’t put me off at all. It was just how he used the terms that he did. It’s like it didn’t fit his persona. I did like the connection that the duo had. They were an instant fit and their relationship felt right.

 All in all, the writing and story-line was sweet, and I would definitely read Ella Fox again.

Prologue

Alissa

When your whole world implodes and in the matter of hours and your happily ever after turns to dust, life sucks.

I’m left holding the baby. Literally.

The baby being my eleven-month old daughter, Nora, who knows nothing of her father’s failure to be a decent husband… man… well human-being really. He’s a shitty person and that’s all there is to it. Our story started out like your typical fairy-tale. Goosebumps still prickle my skin when I remember the way he chased me throughout Senior school, and the years of romance that followed. And the proposal and wedding? Just call me Cinde-fucking-rella. But my perfect life came crashing down as quickly as that pink line appeared on the pregnancy test. Apparently a tired, puffy and hormonal wife didn’t exactly make my husband’s dick stand to attention. So, in a move I can only imagine was driven by his little head (and I do mean little,) he decided my ex-best friend was a better option.

That’s right I said ex because before she did the dirty with my husband she was the best friend. I told her everything, confided in her and cried on her shoulder about my non-existent sex life and all the while her own sex life was heating up with my husband. Weekends away on ‘business trips’ and doing all the things a wife should be doing with her husband. Except she was his slutty side piece with a big fat mouth and a huge spent pussy the whole football team had ridden so often they called her the local bike.

Yeah, I’m bitter and I don’t care. I’ve been wronged by the two people I trusted the most. Now I’m a single mother with no social life to speak of, and my only conversation is in baby gobbledegook. I actually look forward to the delivery woman ringing the doorbell when I order groceries online. Yeah, I have them delivered. Have you ever tried juggling a crying baby and a shopping cart while concentrating on what comfort food you plan to stuff your face with that night while crying over chick flicks? Yeah, I’m miserable, it’s obvious, right?



I’m a born and bred East Yorkshire lass. Where I still live with my husband and our children.
A self-confessed night owl, that’s usually when I do my best work, lucky for me home-schooling my daughter gives me plenty of time to catch up on those late-night hours writing, although my irrational love of full sugar coke can help with that too—don’t tell the sugar police.

I wrote my first book when my daughter was born back in 2004, but it stayed on my laptop for years while I worked out what to do with it. Things were sure different back then, and to be able to publish a manuscript you’d poured your soul into seemed a far-off dream, one that I didn’t know would ever come true.

While my first book baby festered on my hard drive, I went on to study a Creative Writing and English degree, while also growing our family with not only children but more puppies and dog’s than a sane woman should have.

With a degree under my belt, those original characters, tucked safely far away from sight, still called to me like old friends. Using my new skills and knowledge I decided to give them the attention they deserved. Forbidden Love is the result of those long years of maturing and I couldn’t be prouder of how my first novel turned out.

What began as one story, fifteen years ago, grew to become a series and in 2016 I took the plunge and dove into the indie publishing world releasing Forbidden Love to feedback that blew my mind.
And here I still am, loving every minute, bringing characters that hold a place in my heart to life.
All I can do now, is hope you are here to join me for the ride.

Untwist (Unbound Trilogy, Book 3) by Kathy Coopmans: Release Blitz + Review



Title: Untwist
Series: The Unbound Trilogy, Book Three
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publish Date: November 5, 2019
Review Source: Love Affair with Fiction




I waited ten years to grasp hold of a woman I knew was too good to be mine.

 Back then, I had failed her. But I knew, somehow, someway, unknowingly to her, I’d find a way to make it up to her.

All the years in between, I watched her from afar. Keeping her safe, protecting her from the shadows that crept in the deep, dark of the night.

Then, out of the blue, she unraveled me with one sweep of her innocent little tongue.

The woman drew me straight toward all her light.

Blinding.

 Intoxicatingly.

 Mine.

It didn’t take long for me to come undone. Fall in love and change the course of my life.

 Ellie Wynn had untwisted me from leading a lifestyle that should have never been mine.

Then fate gave us a crash course about how not all good things come to those who wait.

 I’d failed her once again.

 This time, her life is on the line.

I’m strung up because of it. I’m tumbling down because I should have known, the shadow that lurked in the night would steal her from me, in a blink of an eye.

And, now, I’m left to wonder how much can a person take before they break?

Don’t miss the rest of this trilogy!


Untwist .... the third book and conclusion of Logan and Ellie’s story, in the Unbound Trilogy.

This story is one of courage, strength, love, unity and family. We always hear that people fight to the death for the ones they love. When we’re faced with something that is only in the movies, how would you respond? You have two choices ... fight or flight. In Ellie and Logan’s case? They fight. They fight with everything they can to protect each other, to come back to the ones that matter most. This story had me on the edge of my seat, quickly turning the pages to see what will happen next. This trilogy is everything and then some. It’s a story of unmasking the evil in this world and battling it out to become a victor in the challenge.

Kathy Coopmans writing has always captivated me. Her books are amongst my favorites. The characters are relatable, and you can’t help but root them on. You want them happy and loved and tough as nails. There are times that you’ll need a tissue or two, no matter if it’s tears of sadness or joy, just keep them close. I’m excited to see what she has in store for us next!







Once when I was a little girl, I dreamt that my dad painted our house pink because he wanted the whole city to know that inside the castle, lived his princess and his queen.

There were thick vines covered in bluebonnets that rose up from the ground and went past my bedroom window ending somewhere in the bright blue sky.

Below on the green grass stood my prince. I couldn’t see his face; I only knew he was someday going to climb up, and we were going to live happily ever after just like all the movies I watched with my mom and dad.

When I woke, I knew our house wasn’t pink, and I knew the man that stood there waiting for me wasn’t real. I pretended he was, and even though I thought boys were yucky, I remember telling my mom about the dream. She didn’t laugh and tell me it wasn’t real. She told me seeing was believing. She said children have a vibrant imagination and mine could be whatever I wanted it to be.

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to be. I only knew someday I wanted to be a mother.

I wanted someone to love me the way my dad loved my mom.

 So, I used my imagination, and I pretended and daydreamed as most little girls do. Sometimes, my dreams came vividly alive while I slept. Others would occur at random, like the times when my parents and I would lie in the field, surrounded by bluebonnets and gaze at the stars.

In this dream I’m having now, I’m hopelessly in love with a man with dark brown hair and the greenest eyes. A love like ours wasn’t a conventional type of love, but it’s our love, and it came on quickly. Beautiful to me, and everlasting.

In my dream, I’m holding a baby, and this man was holding me as we stared down at our unexpected miracle. I couldn’t tell if it was a girl or a boy. I couldn’t even see its face. I only knew it was a part of me and a part of him. Its heartbeat vibrant and steady. It has ten fingers, ten toes, and a head full of hair the same color as the man. It was perfect, it was healthy, and it was very much alive.

In my dream, there wasn’t a monster holding a gun; there were only beauty and peace and a whispering breeze of calm. In my dream, my parents are alive. My mother knew who I was, and my father, he wasn’t lost in his sea of pain.

I gasp, choking on my saliva, spitting it out and feeling it dribble down my chin as my dream switches directions. The gears start shifting. They grind making an awful noise, and my life swerves, spinning out of control. I come to a dead stop, ending with my worst nightmare in front of me.
A hallucination that can’t be real.

Unpredictable and volatile.

I blink and close my eyes several times to clear the fog. I need to see my baby’s face instead of the monster.

I open them slowly, to find my baby is gone. Sweat drips down my temples; dread surrounds me because as my hands frantically search for my child, it’s then I realize the man holding me isn’t the man I love, it’s the monster.


He’s found me.
