Release Blitz & Giveaway: Royally Relinquished by Hayley Faiman!

 
The only thing royal about Caitriona Geneva Grace is the blue of her beat-up sedan. While luxury and vanity are terms she could use to describe her everyday life, they're not words she lives by. Rather, they're words that keep her fed—barely. As a receptionist at a medical spa, her life is far from glamorous, but she gets by. For Cait, anything beats the life she left behind when she said goodbye to her small town after high school.
 
His highness, Prince Henrik Stuart, is a slave to his royal status. Bound by duty and controlled by the crown, he fears a future chained to a woman of good breeding--a match not made in love. While known as the foolhardy prince, the thought of settling down isn't what troubles him. Rather, if he could find a woman who cared nothing of his title, he would give her the world.
 
When a weekend trip leads to a chance meeting, both Caitriona and Henrik feel a spark between them unlike any they've experienced before. To each, the other is too good to be true, but one night of fun cannot be denied.
 
When she said 'yes' to the handsome, green-eyed stranger, Caitriona didn't know that she was stepping into her very own fairytale.
 
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...except when it's legally binding.

Author bio:

I’m just a small-town Texas girl who loves her husband, kids and the Dallas Cowboys. I spend most of my free time, what little there is between work and kids, reading almost anything I can get my hands on. I was inspired to start writing on my last birthday after I attended my first author signing event. On a wing and a prayer (and a swift kick in the ass from my best friend), I wrote my first novel. Now, I am hooked on writing and can’t type fast enough for the voices in my head or my best friend.

Release Day Blitz & Review: Waiting to Breathe [Waiting Duet 01] by Alyson Reynolds!

 
Publication date: 21st March 2017
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: She's broken.

He's lost.


Olivia Crawford had been through the ringer. All she wants is to start over without any complications or anyone figuring out her secrets. When her twin brother Finn convinces her to move back home and finish her degree at his school, it's just the push she needs to start over.


Nathaniel Ford is the golden boy of SCU. He seems like he has it all, perfect family, awesome friends and fraternity brothers, and a few buildings on campus with his last name on them. But things aren't always what they seem.


From the first time Nate and Olivia bump into each other, literally, he wants more of her feisty attitude, but Olivia throws more walls up with each step he takes closer, and he isn't sure he can break them down fast enough.


I was one of the blogs that helped reveal the cover for this book! I then decided to review it for the Release Day Blitz because the synopsis really intrigued me and made me want to read the story! I received an ARC of this book and I started reading it very last minute because I was away on holiday! I did zoom through this book, but it was mainly because I was on a deadline to review it lol! I really enjoyed this book though! The plot developed at a really good pace and it did keep me interested! There were also plenty of seriously hot scenes that made me love the plot too! I will admit though that I took this book down a star because sometimes I couldn't feel the romantic connection between the two main characters! I sometimes lost that connection with them and this made it difficult for me to read some scenes! I loved that there was some action and a bit of suspense in the plot and the ending was left at the perfect place too! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Olivia was the main female character, and in this book it was easy to tell that Olivia had a secret! I had some sort of idea as to what her secret could have been, but I was wrong lol! I wasn't far off, but I didn't expect the secret to be what it was lol! I really liked Olivia in this book! There were times in this book where I really liked her and then there were times where I kinda wanted to shake some sense into her! She did overreact at a major scene, and this made me kinda mad lol, but everything worked out lol! I also felt sorry for Olivia in this book because she had been through a lot and she just wanted a fresh start! She definitely got that lol! Nate was the main male character and love interest of Olivia! Nate was a character that went through a lot in this book and didn't want to tell Olivia because she was already dealing with a lot! I respected Nate a lot for this, but Olivia was stronger than he thought lol! Nate was also very protective of Olivia and he proved this again and again in this book! He had some insane amount of love for her too and I loved the way that he supported her when she told him her secret! This told me a lot about the kind of guy that Nate was! He was also seriously hot, but I liked that he wasn't a douche and thought that he could get what he wanted just because of his looks! I loved that this book was written from both Olivia and Nate's point of views! I was kinda expecting it to be after I read the synopsis, but I'm really happy that it was! It really helped me connect more with both characters and it allowed for more things to happen in the plot too! I also can't wait to read the next book in this series! I wasn't sure what was going to happen in the next book as Olivia and Nate's story ended perfectly and very beautifully, so I didn't think that the author would give them a second book! The next book is actually going to focus on two secondary characters from this book though, which makes me really excited! I can't wait to read it once it releases! The cover for this book suits it perfectly! I wasn't really sure how it was going to fit in with the book after I read the synopsis, but then I read the book and it represents the characters story perfectly! I love it a lot! Big thank you to Alyson and Give Me Books for an ARC of Waiting to Breathe!

Blog Tour: Crashed [Crown and Anchor 01] by Kerri Ann!



Circe

All it takes is one wrong choice to change the course of your life forever. It was all planned out; I was going to be someone special. That was me in a nutshell. But, when everything has been in your grasp, how do you live when it all slips away?
My life has been a series of bad memories, bad moves, wrong turns and pain. Lots of pain. Then I met him. I thought that pain would be a thing of the past; I guess not. I thought I was living, but I soon found out I was simply surviving until I met him.
 
After years of watching from afar, I realized that there is so much more to him. Wyatt Crown is beautiful to watch, lovely to imagine and a dream come true in the flesh. Every woman knows that. Did they know there are darker, more devilish pieces to his soul?
 
There’s things he can’t show the outside world that is not part of decent society, but, it’s a need he can’t deny.

Wyatt


I’m wealthy beyond what I’ll be able to spend, I have a family that cares, I have everything I could ever ask for -- yet, I’m alone. There’s a hole in me that can’t be filled. There’s a darkness that can only be fed by depravity. Disguised as loved, it’s my bedfellow of choice.
 
I’m from a family of daredevils. We call ourselves race junkies. I need the roar of the crowd, the rush of pushing limits and most of all -- success. My father is, my sister is and my brother too. We race to win. Nothing less is accepted. If I can’t win, there’s no living with me.
 
This isn’t your sweet, he said/she said, they found true love. This is dirty, dark, twisted and full of partial hope. Don’t expect a happy ending, but if you get it; you can thank me later.

Release Day Blitz: The Silver Swan [The Elite Kings Club 01] by Amo Jones!

 
Excerpt!
 
   “Nate?” I whisper. “Maybe I took a wrong turn.”
   Silence.
   “Nate!” I yell down the phone. “This isn’t funny.”
   “I’m not laughing, sis. Keep going, we can see your headlights.” What am I doing? I’m basically relying on the fact that Nate and I had bonded a little and that both our parents are together. I’m not sure those facts are worth my life. No, he wouldn’t. I’m just being paranoid. The only time, except for school, where I didn’t bring my fucking pistol either. I sag in defeat. My dad will not be impressed with my not carrying, and my mom will no doubt be screaming at me from the other side about how these are the reasons why she and my dad educated me so much on firearms. I’ve failed as a fucking daughter. I shuffle up in my seat.
   “Nate, I don’t fucking see anything up here but ja—OMG!” I slam on the breaks, all four tires locking up in a skid. I squeeze the steering wheel tightly, banging down the locks on the doors. “Nate!” I yell into the phone.
    Silence.
    Slowly, I look up out the front windscreen, the thick dust from my tires interrupting the loose gravel still floating in the air and that’s when I see it again.
    Ten men.
    Ten dark hoodies covering their faces.
    Ten—“Nate..” understanding sets in. Ten.
    Slamming the gear into reverse, I’m just about to floor it backwards—to hell with anything or anyone behind me—when my driver’s window smashes into a million pieces, the tiny shards of glass falling onto my lap. I scream, my hands coming up to shield my face just as an arm slips inside and pops up the lock.
    A deep menacing chuckle breathes over the back of my neck just as a leather gloved hand wraps around my mouth and pulls me out of the car. “Hello Madison. You don't know us, but we know you. We want to play a game. Here's what happens if you lose...”
 
Riddle me this...
“I am neither dead, nor alive, and I’m not something little Madison can hide.
But you will be dead, by the time this is done...
the timer starts now, and the games have just begun…”
 
Madison Montgomery comes from money and power, but when someone close to her commits the ultimate crime, Madison must live with her tainted name for the rest of her life.
 
When she begins Riverside Preparatory Academy, the private school her father has swept her into in The Hamptons, she hopes for a fresh start.
 
What she wasn't hoping for was the pack of bad boys who run the school; ten, to be exact. When Madison gains the attention of their leader, Bishop Vincent Hayes, a whole new world that she didn't think existed is exposed to her. A whole world that starts and ends with The Elite Kings Club and these boys, are about to flip her world upside down.
 
Secrets are overflowing and family lies are about to be exposed. Is there more to Madison Montgomery than even she knows?
