No Saint by: Rie Warren - Release Blitz w/Review


Title: No Saint

Series: Blood Legion MC

Author: Rie Warren

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: September 16, 2019


SAINT
With a rap sheet about as long as the inked sleeves on my arms, I’ve been a misfit with a questionable track record. But I’ve fought for and found a home with the Blood Legion MC. Through thick and thin, brawls and bloodletting, I’ve created a rep: I’m the man.

I’m the man, and Honoré’s the only woman I want. This obsession with her is irrational and stupid considering she’s prickly, pissed off with me before I can even make a move, and definitely not my type. Except the beautiful New Orleans street busker takes my breath away—all untapped passion simmering just beneath the surface.

Something much darker simmers just beneath the surface of her life too.

HONORÉ
Being someone’s old lady is the last thing on my mind. Been there, done that, along with the obligatory bourbon shots, random ink, and riding bitch on some guy’s bike. I can’t slip away from my life, or spare time for a surly biker who has crawled under my skin and rattled my last nerve in a sexy, delicious way.

Saint. As if. I’ve known my fair share of outlaw MC dudes, and not a single one of them was anything close to righteous. I want to hate him and everything he stands for, but he’s ridiculously hot. He’s annoyingly persistent. And he’s surprisingly kind.

There’s no way I can sacrifice all I’ve fought for to be with him. When Saint brings danger to my door, it’s only a matter of time before my secrets spill over to rip us apart.



Well if you have ever read any of my reviews you will know MC is one of my top two favorite types. Add that it's Rie Warren and that's just icing on the already amazing cake.

The addition to this story that I loved was they each had someone in common but neither knew this. This little tidbit would come out in an epic way and change their relationship.

Saint is ready for happily ever after. He wasn't looking for it but he recognized it when it came around. Honore is amazingly talented and beautiful. She has a great kind and fun personality. And she's hot!

Honore is no innocent when it comes to MC dudes. But she does put them all in a stereotypical box. She know's Saint is nothing like his name and fears he will do to her what she recognizes has been done to her in the past.

Will Saint prove to Honore he isn't the man she thinks? When all the secrets come out will their relationship withstand it? Honore is going to have to let someone else in, will she be able to do that?

The writing, the characters, the story....there is nothing about this book that isn't Fantastic!!! Loved this book!!!! I rarely give FIVE feathers but this one earns every one of them!

Very Highly Recommend!!!

I raised to sitting, the top of my dress still barely covering both beaded nipples and little else. My hands roamed up Saint’s jean clad legs, and his muscles flexed beneath my fingers. When I reached the waist, I tugged him closer to me. The line of darker hair bisecting the planes of his stomach and the arrows of deep muscle from his pelvis were just teasing glimpses of what lay lower, beneath the faded denim. Peering up at him lids, I rubbed my cheek against the long hard length of his cock. “My turn.” Eyes slanted down, he groaned. “I didn’t bring you here to blow me.” My fingers at the tabs of his jeans, I opened the next one. “I want to.” Quickly plucking the rest of the buttons free, I pulled the fabric wider. All I could see was the nest of hair framing the wide base of his cock that throbbed with veins. “Off. Take these off!” I tugged hastily, my mouth already watering. With one of his wicked grins, he finally complied. Not one ounce shy, he kicked off his last article of clothing and stood there in front of me, all bold muscular masculinity . . . no apologies, and no apologies needed. I felt limp with wanting him, especially when my gaze roved from the strapping sinews of his legs to his . . . to his cock. He was fit. Hung. Huge. Inked. And that long thick dick was . . . pierced. Ohhhh. Another trickle of juice drizzled from my slit as I imagined Saint—big, pierced Saint—driving up inside of me. Precum slickened his completely erect, completely huge cock, and the Prince Albert piercing gleamed too. I perched closer, dress still hiked around my naked waist. “You’re pierced.” His head notched down, he nodded once. “You’re big.” “Touch me,” he ordered in a rugged voice. My hand on him, I tried to encircle the hot male flesh. His cock stood rigidly upright against his abs, and I anchored the heavy rod down slowly. Another drop of precum drizzled from the bloated crown to my fingers. Saint grunted, rocking closer to my face. Every muscle in his body tensed, and I ran my tongue over his clear jism, taking his essence into my mouth. Then I set my lips against the underside, rubbing my lips all over the turgid veiny flesh. I loved the taste. I loved the heady musky smell. “I’m gonna suck you now, Saint. And if you say no again, I’m going to tie you up.”

Decidedly by Chance by: Stina Lindenblatt - Release Blitz w/Review



Title: Decidedly by Chance

Series: By the Bay #5

Author: Stina Lindenblatt

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: September 19, 2019




She's pregnant with another man's baby

He's now the father to his little niece.
A sexy romance with all the feels!

Single Mom-To-Be Rule #1: watch out for those horny hormones. Oops.

After a childhood of bouncing from one foster home to another and a series of failed relationships, I’ve taken matters into my own hands when it comes to starting a family.

Or rather, someone else’s hand. And a plastic cup.

I’d rather be a single mom than be let down again, and I’m definitely not looking for a baby daddy. That includes sexy workaholic game designer Wes Chiasson, thank you very much.

***

My software company has been my number one, two, and three priorities. But that all changes when I suddenly become the guardian of my three-year-old niece. Now my world has turned topsy-turvy with princesses and little-girl tea parties.

When Hannah Morrell needs a place to stay after the pipes in her apartment burst, I invite her to move in with my niece and me. Hannah is a pediatric nurse, and given my situation, who could ask for a better roommate?

Sounds easy. Right?

It is—until emotions get tossed into the mix. Because if there’s one thing history has taught Hannah, it’s that the people who’ve gained her love can’t be trusted.

And now I have to put my heart on the line to prove otherwise.


AMAZON US / UK / CA / AU / B&N / KOBO / APPLE BOOKS  /  GOOGLE PLAY

Sweet. Just really sweet. It's awesome to read a book that's got depth and structure and real world events and circumstances.

Wes & Hannah are friends. They have both friend-zoned each other. They had lives they needed to lead and for much of this friend-ship they did. Only getting to see each other when each of their other friends all got together. 


Wes was busy building his company. He had a brother, sister in law and a cute little neice he saw when he could. He worked out every day and occasionally had women over. Nothing serious, just a normal single guy.

Hannah worked her butt off to become a pediatric nurse coming from a foster situation. She worked hard and had little time for dating. Although the dating she had been doing was a lot of first only dates. She decided to go the modern route and have a baby via artificial insemination. 

After an accident, Wes gets his niece full time. After a flood, Hannah needs a place to live. Will these two finally work out their relationship? Will Hannah finally learn to trust someone completely? Can they have a relationship AND a ready made family?

I loved this book a lot. It has great characters and the story line is wonderful. It's quick and fast paced too.

Highly Recommend!!!







Wes
The next morning, I walked into Connor’s office without knocking first. “What can you tell me about a Philip Stevenson? He’s a lawyer at Long and Fairbrother.”

“Any reason why you’re asking?”

“A friend of mine might be doing some business with him, and I want to make sure there’s nothing sketchy about him.”
All right, that wasn’t exactly the truth, but it was close enough. Business. Date. They were pretty much kissing cousins on the grand scale of things, especially where Hannah was concerned.

I knew Hannah’s dating life wasn’t any of my business. It was her choice if she wanted to date some loser—as long as said loser wasn’t also a big creep.

Which was why I was in Connor’s office. As Hannah’s new roommate, it was my duty to ensure things were on the up-and-up with this Philip guy.

“Give me three hours, and I’ll see what I can find,” Conner said.

“Great. Thanks. I owe you one.”

“You owe him what?” Jayden asked, strolling into the office. He handed Connor a short stack of files. “I need a level-four background check on these five guys.”

“I’m right on it.”

“Great. So let’s return to what Wes owes you…” He looked between us, expectantly.

“Have you considered the possibility that it has nothing to do with you?” I inwardly groaned. That was the worst thing I could have said to Jayden. It only spiked his curiosity.

“I have—for maybe one second. Two, tops. So spill it. What’s going on here?”

“Wes needed to run a check on some lawyer,” Connor told him.

“Why does Wes need you to do that?” Liam’s voice came from the doorway behind me.

I twisted away from the desk. “Why is everyone suddenly curious about what I’m doing?”

Jayden smirked. “Because we know whatever you’re up to is bound to be entertaining.”

Connor adopted an identical expression. “He’s got a point there.”

“Looks like we’re all in agreement.” Liam crossed his arms, demonstrating the bad-guy-beware stance he had perfected while with the SEALs.

“All right, if you really must know. A stranger asked Hannah out on a date, and I want to make sure she’s not going out with someone who’s bad news.”

“Are we talking about Hannah Morrell? The woman who’s one step away from getting her black belt, the woman who knows how to look after herself?”

The smirks on Connor’s and Jayden’s faces grew wider.

“That would be the one. Normally I would agree that she knows how to take care of herself. But she’s pregnant now, so I don’t think it’s a bad idea to ensure that she isn’t in over her head.”

All three men exchanged looks.

Shit.

“And for the record, you didn’t hear about the pregnant part from me. She’s going to tell everyone”—I looked pointedly at Liam—“including your fiancée, when she’s ready.”

Did you hear that? That was the sound of a pin dropping against Connor’s desk. That was how quiet the room was after my little announcement.

Liam was the first to get over his shock. “Hannah is pregnant?”

“I don’t suppose you’re the father?” That would be Jayden.
“Why would you even think that?”

“Because everyone knows you used to have a thing for her.” Jayden might have said it, but his tone implied I still had a thing for her.

“I didn’t have a thing for her, and I still don’t.” Right, just be happy that lightning can’t hit you inside a building, dumbass, an annoying voice in my head said. “And no, I’m not the father.”

“Do you know who the father is?” Liam asked. “Connor can do a background check on him. Just to be sure she won’t be dealing with some major headaches down the line.”

“Is that the guy you want me to do the check on?” Connor asked. “Is he the father?”

I shook my head, even though I had no idea if Philip the lawyer made a recent deposit at the sperm bank. Even if he had, chances were slim that Hannah ended up with his sperm. “No. He’s just a stranger she met in a store yesterday, and he asked her out on a date.”

“Okay, Connor, do the background check on Hannah’s date first. And then report back to us.”

“Us?” I asked.

“Yes, us. We want to know what we’re dealing with. We all like Hannah, and she’s my fiancée’s friend. If Ava even suspects I haven’t done my due diligence when it comes to Hannah’s dating life, I could end up losing my balls. And I’ve grown quite attached to them, no pun intended.”

I almost felt sorry for Hannah’s idiot date if Connor did turn up dirt on him. If the guys’ expressions were anything to go by, he’d be canceling soon after.

But none of this surprised me. The team had already dealt with the individual who had been fast on the draw when it came to towing Hannah’s vehicle. Connor had found dirt on him, and Jayden and Liam had a little chat with the douchebag to make sure he demonstrated restraint in the future.

“Is he picking her up for the date, or is she meeting him somewhere?” Jayden asked.

“She said she’s meeting him at Swizzle Sticks Lounge.” It was some fancy-ass place I’d taken a couple of dates to in the past.

“Time?”

“That part didn’t come up in our conversation yesterday.” I was lucky I even found out his name and where they were meeting up.

And that was only because she wasn’t expecting me to crash the date.

“Not a problem,” Liam said. “We can set up a detail to follow her from Travis’s building.”

“What exactly are you guys planning to do?”

“Quite simple. Jayden and Isabelle will show up at the meeting and make sure everything goes smoothly.”

My gaze shifted to Jayden. “You mean you two will be pretending to be on a date?”

“More like two colleagues going out after work to discuss work-related matters.”

Plausible? Quite possibly. “There’s only one problem with that plan,” I said, stalling on revealing the next part. “Hannah isn’t staying with Travis and Emma anymore.”

Liam’s eyebrows raised in either surprise or disbelief. “She’s already found a new apartment?”

“Not exactly. She’s moving into my condo this afternoon.”

Whatever emotion Liam had experienced with my first revelation had just done an unexpected U-turn. It was now fully in the disbelief zone.

Boss of Me by Tia Louise



They warned me not to take this job.
They said you were ruthless, impossible to please…
I said I was better than them.
I wouldn’t fall for your charm, your arrogance, or how sexy you fill out that suit.
I wouldn’t fall for your deep brown eyes or the way that muscle moves in your square jaw when you’re pissed.

I said I could resist you.
I was wrong...

(BOSS OF ME is a STAND-ALONE workplace, military romance with a badass alpha boss and the feisty woman who steals and heals his heart. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)


This book is smoking hot!! Patton is every woman's military wet dream and Raquel is a strong smart independent woman who I will champion until the death of me. 
I'm loving this wave of authors writing strong female characters, even with vulnerabilities they are fierce. 
So onto the book. 
Raquel just graduated top of her class and is ready to take the corporate world by storm. She enlists at a company that her sister used to work for but didn't anymore due to unknown reasons, but she didn't leave amicably. 
Patton is a veteran that seen some things... bad things... things that will change a person. He is beautifully damaged but not beyond repair. 
They meet and he's sour but he is attracted to her fire and the fact that she doesn't bend to his every whim. She challenges him and doesn't take his crap. 
The sexual chemistry is amazing and it's always fun when they pretend it's nothing. WE KNOW its magic though. 
The only thing that stopped this book from being 5 feathers for me are two things:
1. I find it concerning her sister didn't tell her why she left and why she would take the job knowing this place left her sister in such shambles. 
2. The conflict ended too cleanly. Marley needed to be helped, he seemed coddled and they made excuses for him. I wish they would've been more firm. I understand what he was going through was unimaginable but they should love him from outside of the building. 
Other than that... I loved it. I recommend it to everyone looking to melt between the pages.

I have loved these books! This whole series is amazing! It's got danger, hot men (and women), bad ass women (and men) with a huge side of royalty. 

This is sorta book 2 for Zia and Theo and picks up right where we left them - on the beach with Derrick back!

So who kidnapped him? Where has he been? Did Theo know he had a twin? Did their father? Who is their mother? Does this mean Theo is a royal now? What about Zia? Will Theo stay for her?

Soooo many questions and the ride to finding out the answers is just awesome!!

Well written, amazing characters, fast-paced, wonderful story....it just makes for a fantastic read!

Very Highly Recommend!!!






Zia...
Liar.

Conman.

Duplicitous fuck.


As I leaned against the wall of the makeshift medical room we'd set up in the penthouse, I thought about the two versions of the man I had started to fall for.

Two versions of one of the richest men in the world. One of them was a billionaire, Derrick Arlington. And the other was someone I didn't know.

And currently, one of them was bleeding all over what looked like a massage table.

I'd fallen in love with a mirage. None of what I'd felt had been real.

As the doctor Royal Elite had on call worked to patch up Derrick, I watched them both. The resemblance was beyond uncanny. They were freaking identical.

No. You can tell them apart.

Right now, I could. But without the scruff and long hair, would I be able to?

I forced myself to take a closer look. To focus on what was different, what stood out.

For starters, Theo, or whoever the hell he was, had broken his nose. There was a slight bump in the ridge. It was barely noticeable, but it distinguished them. That and the eyes, that stormy gray, surrounded by thick lashes. They were the same shape and color, but Arlington's were a little closer together. Or maybe a little wider. It was hard to tell now as he had a cut above one and it was nearly swollen shut.

Heightwise, they looked about the same, but I couldn't be sure. They weighed about the same. And I only knew that because I'd helped drag Arlington off the beach with Theo, who had mumbled some bullshit about me not finding out that way. And sorry, sorry blah blah blah. If I was being honest, the shock had rendered me deaf and dumb right then.

But once the crisis was over, my voice was back, and I had a shit ton to say. Starting with Liar. Conman. Duplicitous fuck.

It didn't matter what form of explanation came out of his mouth. As far as I was concerned, he was full of shit.
