Excerpt and Giveaway: Run to Ground by Katie Ruggle

Her shoulders lifting and dropping again in a sigh, Jules stiffened her spine. She just needed to be confident. She also needed to not let the cop’s air of authority—as well as his muscled forearms and pretty dark-brown eyes—reduce her to the babbling idiot she’d become the last time he’d been at the diner. For goodness’ sake, she’d messed up her name. Her name. If she wanted to survive in her new life, she needed to step up her game. Firming her jaw, she picked up a coffeepot and headed to Theo’s table. He watched her, his frown deepening with each step, and she […]

I didn’t want her to be scared of anything ever again.Things at home had been rocky, rougher than class-five rapids in winter, but I was paddling for my life and prepared to ride it out. I couldn’t let go. I wouldn’t let go. I saw Poppy the day she walked through my shop and I started to feel how sore my hands and my heart were from holding on.Her head was down, focused on the tips of her shoes. Her shoulders were hunched over and her long hair hid her face. She was skinny, so skinny, nothing but skin and bones. She was nothing […]

Review: Stay by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

Really enjoyed this one! This is the second book in the Wags series by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy and it’s just as funny as the first book. Matthew Eriksson “Snipes” is the Toronto team’s hockey star and he happens to be the client of one Hailey Taylor Emery “Hottie” company called Fetch. Fetch is an online virtual assistance company, the company you call when you forget to do things and remember them at the last minute or to more important things like booking things for work etc. Matt has been using Fetch since his divorce almost two years ago and Hailey has been […]

Review and Giveaway: Hearts on Air by L.H. Cosway

Another five star read from the talented L.H Cosway. Honestly this woman can write a love story about ramen noodles and it would still be an amazing and unique piece of work! The story is about the final Cross brother Trevor (a parkour enthusiast) and his shy but talented best friend Reya with whom he’s kind of in love with but still manages to fuck it up (don’t they all?). Despite the iffy story line, which lets be real sounds cliché as hell and been done to death, it was incredibly refreshing and the story line didn’t come across as cheesy or boring. Throwing […]

Shelby brushed her lips against his, her whole body seeming to come to life. His lips were soft, his hands tight. He was enveloping her and she was completely defenseless against him. She wrapped her arms around him as the kiss deepened, and suddenly she didn’t want to play it safe anymore. She’d been in her shell for so long and she wanted to come out of it, wanted to feel again. She dragged her tongue over his lower lip, and it seemed to awaken the beast in Drew. He took over, the kiss going from sweet to carnal in an instant. His mouth […]

“That was…interesting.” “I never thought I’d see those two mediums used together.” “I may have to stab my own eyes out to make sure I never see it again,” Brooke said and then shuddered. They had just left the art gallery, and she waited until they were at the corner before looking at Owen. “I am so sorry.” He looked taken aback by her apology. “Why?” “That was horrible! Everything in there was offensive and tasteless and just…wrong! I can’t believe an art professor would recommend that to anyone!” “Maybe he didn’t know exactly what kind of art was being displayed.” Brooke shook her […]

“Ooh, look! A new one just was added to the database,” Penny coos in excitement as she points to the screen.We’re gathered around my iPad at Speakeasy, our favorite Midtown haunt, perusing the latest offerings on a bank I’ve been in touch with in Manhattan.“He’s five-foot-nine. College educated. Plays the violin. And he has red hair,” Delaney reads, then runs her fingers over the ends of my hair. “Do you want little redheaded babies?” I laugh. “I think I’d like the choice whether they should have red hair or not, and clearly I’m only bringing recessive genes to the equation.” Penny swipes left dramatically […]

Excerpt and Giveaway: Royal Treatment by Parker Swift

For the past five months, I’d taken my mission to heart: Put yourself first. Enjoy the freedom of life out of the spotlight. Get your career off the ground before it competes with running an ancient estate and being on your husband’s arm. For five months, I’d said yes to all things. Late nights dancing with Fiona and Josh. Girlie nights with Emily. Paris for Fashion Week. Long runs in the park by myself without paparazzi trailing me. Late nights working on the launch of Fiona’s online store. Dylan and I had kept our relationship low profile so that I could do all those […]
