Release Blitz & Giveaway: Fall with Me [Wait for You 04] by Jennifer L. Armentrout!


 
Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.

Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.

But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: A Secret Place [Stolen Tears 01] by Cortney Pearson!

 
Raids splatter across the news--Arcaian soldiers are stealing magic left and right, using it against the people they steal it from.

When sixteen-year-old Ambry Csille's brother gets taken in one of these raids, her utter fear and panic should be enough to invoke tears in any normal world. But for Ambry, tears are a thing of the past.

Because of a spell, people can no longer feel emotion; not enough to cry, and definitely not enough to defend themselves against the tyrannical soldiers stealing her people’s magic. A rare vial of enchanted tears chooses Ambry to reverse the spell, and soon she finds herself the target not only of the Arcaians, but of battle-scarred Talon Haraway, who wants the tears for his own reasons.

All Ambry wants is to rescue her brother, but when her tears get stolen, Ambry determines to work with Talon to get them back. Any day the Arcaians could drink her tears. Any day they’ll succeed at draining her people's magic completely, and all hope will be gone—not only for her brother, but for her world.

UK Blog Tour: Slow Burn [Driven 05] by K. Bromberg!

Publication date: 24th February 2015
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: One Night. That's all it was supposed to be.

Reeling from the sudden loss of her sister, Haddie Montgomery has sworn off relationships. All she wanted from Beckett Daniels was a sexy distraction to help her escape her pain for just a little while....There weren’t supposed to be any strings attached—so why can’t she shake the memory of that unforgettable night from her thoughts? Or the taste of his kiss from her lips?

No matter how hard Haddie tries to forget about him, Becks relentlessly tries to prove that she should start living for today. But she is determined to avoid romantic commitment, and she can always use her ex-boyfriend’s reappearance to help snuff out the slow burn within her that Becks has sparked....

Or will fate force her to realize that this kind of connection doesn’t come along very often and a chance at love is worth the risk?

I haven't read the other books in this series, but I've heard a lot about them, so when the UK publisher of this book emailed me and asked me if I would like to be on the UK Blog Tour for this book, I said yes after I found out this book could be read as a standalone! Plus, it sounded amazing and the cover is intriguing! I'm so happy I said yes to reading this book! It was absolutely amazing! I also thought that I was going to have a hard time following it as I haven't read the other books, but I understood everything! The plot was also so beautiful, but very emotional! There were some scenes I just balled my eyes out at, but then there were scenes that had me grinning like an idiot lol! My emotions were all over the place! I also had a hard time putting this book down too! I kept wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next! I was drawn right into it! The plot also dealt with a very difficult subject matter, which is probably one of the worst subject matters to not only read about in a book, but experience in real life! The author did a brilliant job with the subject matter though, and I loved every second of reading this book! The characters were amazing! Haddie was the main female character, and my heart completely went out to her in this book! She had already been through so much and experienced so much loss, but then she went through so much personally in this book as well! Haddie was such a fighter though, and she was strong and she was fierce! I loved that she was fierce! It really helped her in this book! Haddie was also quite a stubborn character when it came to her love interest, but I could completely understand why she wanted to keep him at arms length! She did it to protect him, not knowing that he was never going to let her go through what she did by herself! I just loved Haddie and I connected with her all the way through this book! Beckett 'Becks' was the main male character and love interest of Haddie! I loved Becks! He was seriously hot, he was really protective, and I could see that he had some insane amount of love for Haddie! He also really impressed me in this book with how he handled Haddie's stubbornness! There was just something about Becks that instantly made me connect with him too! I loved that he was there for Haddie every step of the way in this book and that he was patient with her while she processed everything and manage to get a grasp on what she was about to go through! I just loved him and he's definitely added to my book boyfriend list lol! I also loved that this book was written from both Haddie and Becks point of views! It really helped me connect more with both characters and it helped develop the plot more! I can't wait to read the next book in this series! I know that it's going to be another standalone book, so I'm definitely going to be reading it when it releases! I'm also definitely going to be checking out the other books in this series that are already released! The cover for this book suits the other covers in the series perfectly! I love it, and I love that it's different, but not too different to the US cover! Big thank you to Sphere for a review copy of Slow Burn and for having me on the UK Blog Tour!

I promised myself I’d stay away from dangerous men, but I couldn’t live up to that when Kyle Andrews came back to town. He’s a manipulator, a guy who’ll do whatever it takes to get what he wants, sabotaging anyone who gets in the way. After a fatal fight left him wounded, his UFC career comes to a close. He has nothing, but he’s determined to get it all back.

Now that my psychotic ex, Alex, can’t find me, I’ve been given a second chance. I owe my life to my friends. The same goes for Kyle. Without him, I wouldn’t be able to feel.

Everyone hates him. But for the life of me I don’t. There’s something about him I can’t ignore. Being with Kyle makes me want it all. However, in loving a hated man, I didn’t know it’d bring the life I fled from back to haunt me. Everywhere I go danger lurks and bad things happen. Kyle believes it’s because of him, but I’m starting to think otherwise. I think Alex has found me, and if so, this time he’s not going to let me go.

I hadn't heard of this book or this author until I got an email from the UK publisher asking me if I would like to review it! As soon as I read the synopsis and saw the cover, I knew I wanted to read this book straightaway! It sounded exactly like my kind of book, and the authors it's for fans of are my kind of authors too! I loved this book! It had an inexperienced main character, a seriously hot love interest, and some seriously hot sex scenes! I do have to say though that I think there were too many sex scenes, and not enough plot development lol! Regardless, I still really enjoyed the plot! I would probably have loved it more if it had less sex scenes, but it is an erotic book lol! The sex scenes were super hot as well, so I shouldn't really complain lol! The plot also developed nicely and held my interest all the way through! I also read it in a few sittings and kept wanting to read a few more chapters! I was really intrigued by it as there was a certain mystery aspect to it with the love interest of the main character, and I really wanted to know what he was hiding! This aspect definitely hooked me lol, and the secret was worth waiting for! The characters were amazing! Lana was the main character, and she had been through a horrible experience because of her step-brother! My heart went out to her when it was revealed what had happened! Nobody should have to go through what she did! She was also in a difficult situation with her family, which made my heart go out to her even more! I could see how big an impact her family situation had on her! Lana was a strong character though! Well, she tried to stay as strong as she could in the circumstances she was in! I just loved Lana! She was my kind of character! Jack was the love interest of Lana, and I wasn't really sure what to think of him at the beginning of this book! I mean, he was hot and he was protective of Lana, but I found him a bit hard to connect with! I actually found him hard to connect with for most of this book! I think it was because this book was only written from Lana's point of view, and Jack was hiding a secret, so I found it a little hard to trust him 100%! Jack was a hardworking, successful guy though, who I could see had feelings for Lana! There was also a bit of a love triangle in this book, which added to the plot, but I think it's going to develop even further in the next book! This book was only written from Lana's point of views and none of it was written from Jack's! This disappointed me a little, as Jack was a character that really intrigued me, but I will say that this book being written from only Lana's point of view added to the mystery that surrounded him! I can't wait to read the next book in this series! I know that it's going to continue Lana's story, so I can't wait to read it! The synopsis also has me desperate to find out what's going to happen next! The ending of this book was very unexpected! The cover for this book is so pretty! It's really different to covers nowadays as it doesn't have a couple on it, but this makes me love it that little bit more! Big thank you to Piatkus for a copy of Yours Tonight and for having me on the UK Blog Tour!

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Changing Tides [Kill Devil Hills 02] by Sarah Darlington!


Publication date: 16th March 2015
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4.5 stars
Synopsis: “Nate West. Hollywood bad-boy. Television megastar. Womanizer. Basically everything I hated about the male species rolled into one handsome package. And yet…I wanted him.”

Ellie Turner is a lesbian. She has tattoos, short hair, and a ‘don’t-mess-with-me-attitude.’ She knows who she is, loves who she is, and couldn’t care less what the rest of the world thinks of her. And since she has the most kick-ass best friend on the planet, Noah Clark, even when family drama gets in the way, nothing can offset her happy-go-lucky demeanor.

Until television star Nate West comes along. All thick muscle and alpha-male testosterone. When Ellie meets him on an airplane the only thing Nate West should be good for is a brand new profile picture on Facebook. Right? Wrong. Turns out he’s good for so much more.

This man is about to flip everything Ellie thought she knew about herself upside down.


I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and although I knew this book wasn't going to be about the same main characters, I was still looking forward to reading it! I really enjoyed this book as well lol! There was something about it that kept me wanting to read on and see what was going to happen next! The plot was also amazing! It developed at a really good pace and I read it in a few sittings! I also don't think I've read a book where a main character is a lesbian and trying to work out her sexuality, so I found that aspect of the plot really interesting and different! There wasn't any suspense or action in this book though, but a secret was revealed that really shook the plot! It was quite a big secret, but I would have liked some action and suspense too! I think this would have added a lot to the plot! Overall, I enjoyed the plot, and I loved that there were some super hot scenes in it as well! The hot scenes were pretty, damn hot lol! The characters were also awesome! Ellie was the main female character, and I loved her in this book! She was really easy for me to connect with! Ellie was also confident in her sexuality and she knew that she was a lesbian! As soon as she saw her love interest though, she began to question her sexuality! I found this very interesting to read about, because as I said, I haven't read a book where one of the main characters is a lesbian! Ellie also really impressed me in this book and I could see why she did the things she did in regards to the secret! She was quite a strong character as well and she learned a lot about herself in this book and came a long way! Nathanial 'Nate' was the main male character, and he was seriously hot! I also loved that although he was famous, he didn't flaunt his money and his fame around! I also respected him as he acted normal and he didn't act like he was better than anyone because of his fame! Like Ellie, I connected really well with Nate too, and I don't think I lost my connection all the way through this book! Nate was also protective of Ellie, and I could see that he had real, deep feelings for her! I just loved Nate, and he also learned a lot in this book about what's important in life and what makes it worthwhile! As much as I loved Ellie and Nate as a couple, I do think that their feelings for each grew too quickly! It was quite sudden, and I'm not really a fan of instant love! I did love that this book was written from both Ellie and Nate's point of views though lol! It helped develop the plot more and getting to go inside both characters heads helped me connect more with them as well! I can't wait to read the next book in this series! The ending of this book was a little abrupt for Ellie and Nate's story though, and judging from the excerpt at the ending of this book the next book is going to be about different characters, so I hope the author gives Ellie and Nate a novella or something to finish off their story or develop their relationship in the next book! The cover for this book is so pretty! You realise how much the cover suits it after you read it! The model on the front definitely suits the character of Ellie too! Big thank you to Sarah for an ARC of Changing Tides and for having me on the Blog Tour!
