Blog Tour & Giveaway: This Isn’t Fair, Baby [War & Peace 06] by K. Webster!



The king in my world fell and a new one slid into place.
He wasn’t just.
He wasn’t FAIR.
He was cruel and hateful and twisted.

But I had this black king figured out.
Or so I thought.

The game became complicated because my black king had some new moves and one of those involved my heart. Hope trickled in for the briefest of moments.

That is, until my black king and my heart sided against me. Those two didn’t play FAIR. They used me as their pawn in a bigger game—a game I didn’t know how to play.

The laws changed. I didn’t play by their rules anymore, for the queen makes up her own.

I am not a pawn.
I am not theirs to use and abuse.
I belong to nobody.

There are new players on the board and they don’t play FAIR either. But the white king does know how to treat his queen. And together, they will make them pay.

All’s FAIR in love and war, right?
Definitely not this time.

Release Day Blitz: Ghost in His Eyes by Carrie Aarons!

 
He was as magnetic as a deadly hurricane to the shore.
 
Carson Cole was my first love. The boy I'd shared my whole self with.
 
He was the man who'd taken the other part of my soul and drowned it in the sea we'd grown up in.
 
And now he's back. Ten years later, and the demons of our past are still haunting every breath trapped between us.
 
She was as wild as the horses who owned the beach highways we drove down.
 
Blake Sayer was the beautiful daredevil who had me wrapped around her finger from the time we were seven.
 
Until a horrible accident stole every piece of joy from her life.
 
Ten years later, she's a shell of the girl she once was, and it's all my fault. The whispers of our history shackle her to the island I left behind.
 
Just like lost years and unspoken words, love had slipped from our fingers like grains of sand. We’d barely made it out alive last time, was it even possible to reconstruct the shattered pieces of us?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Forgotten [The Deception Game 02] by Kristin Smith!

 
Excerpt!
 
   Zane parks his Aria on the lake side of the dam, and we both climb out.
   “Bring back memories?” Zane asks with a wry grin.
   “How you thought I was trying to kill myself? Again?” I laugh. “I don’t know why you thought I was so suicidal.”
   Zane shrugs. “Maybe I didn’t. Maybe I just wanted an excuse to rescue you.”
   My heart trips over itself. “Zane,” I say softly, “you can’t keep saying things like that.”
   He moves around the side of the car. “Why not?” When he takes my hand in his, the warmth of his fingers heats up my whole body.
   “This isn’t a good idea,” I mutter, but I make no move to extract my hand from his.
   He looks down at me, then at our entwined fingers. “But what if it is? What if it’s the best idea in the whole damn world?”
   “Because—because you’re engaged. To someone else.”
   “But I don’t want to be,” he says, his voice low. He takes a step closer until he’s so close that I could wrap my arm around his back if I wanted to.
   “Zane,” I warn, but the warning gets caught in my throat. He’s giving me that look. The same one he gave me before he kissed me that first time on the couch in his house.
   “What?” he whispers.
   “Please, don’t—” But he’s already leaning down, his eyes focused on my mouth. My breath comes out shaky as his fingers slip from mine and his hands touch my waist, gently bringing me closer. Before I can stop myself, our lips meet, and a thousand nerve endings converge to a single spot. His lips are fire and warmth and need. And that single spark ignites an already-smoldering flame.

The epic tale of Sienna Preston continues in this second installment of the exhilarating Deception Game series.

Seventeen-year-old Sienna is no stranger to heartache and loss. But this time, it’s different; someone―or something―has tampered with a loved one’s memories, and she’s determined to get answers.

The trail leads her to the glittering skyscrapers and modern luxuries of Rubex, the Capital of Pacifica, where she infiltrates the government’s Agency for Intelligence and Genetics. But answers are not always easy to come by, especially when her own memories may have been altered. Luckily, Zane Ryder is there to help her put the pieces back together, his devotion and concern muddying the waters between friendship and something more.

When Sienna gets too close to uncovering dark Agency secrets, she’s framed for the murder of a prominent government official, sending her on the run. Sienna’s heart may be torn about who she loves, but none of that really matters anymore―because the only thing that awaits her now is a death sentence.

Cover Reveal: Fast [Not Like the Movies 01] by Lauren K. McKellar!


 
Quinn Hamilton had it all—A grades, a loving family, and a spot on the waitlist for the latest Hermes handbag. The one item left unchecked on her to-do list was her brother’s best friend, Liam, and that was only because Braden was overprotective when it came to his mates.

When tragedy struck, Quinn was left with nothing. Not even the handbag made it.

Three years later, Quinn’s focused on the things that count—getting a steady job, looking after her mother, and playing it safe. Her dreams of working for a fashion magazine haven’t just left the building—they’ve dived into the gutter, never to be touched again.

But when completing a two-week internship in the city, Quinn meets someone who makes her do the one thing she’s been trying desperately to avoid—feel. Will this sexy man who knows so much of her history help her go after what she wants? Or is their brand of passion as outdated as last season’s trends?

She’s running from her past, but her past is running faster.

Release Blitz & Giveaway: Existential [Fallen Aces MC 04] by Max Henry!

 
Excerpt!
 
He reaches out and threads his fingers under mine, bringing our joined hands between us on the floor. “Do you think it’s weak if a man admits his fears?”
I frown, squeezing his hand tight. “No.” Why would he even think that? “I think it’s honorable. It takes so much bravery to admit you have faults.”
“You think?”
“I know.” After all, aren’t I the authority on keeping faults a secret?
He sniffs, staring at the toes of his boots where they rest against the base of the washer. “Since everything went to shit last year, I get … I guess the only way to describe it is angry at myself.”
“What for? Do you blame yourself for what happened?”
His head drops back again, and he closes his eyes as his thumb traces a path on the back of my hand. “Yeah, but I know I shouldn’t. Still, knowin’ what I’m thinkin’ is wrong doesn’t make it go away. I still blame myself for everything, still hate myself for it.”
“That’s natural, though. You went through something traumatic, from what you’ve said of it, so you’ve got strong reactions that need a place to rest.”
“I went on a bender after they died,” he explains, opening his eyes to stare at the ceiling. “Drank, binged on coke, picked fights with my friends, and it wasn’t until I couldn’t remember what it was like to be straight that I finally realized why I did it.”
“Distraction?”
“To die.” 
A lump lodges in my throat as I take him in. At face value he’s strength and dominance. He’s a huge guy, intimidating to those who don’t know him, with his black clothing, leather, and piercings. He puts out an image of power, over others, and himself. But underneath it all he hides this.
“Don’t,” I utter. “Don’t say that again.”
“Why?” He rolls his head to look me in the eye. “It’s the truth, Dagne. I don’t want to do this anymore. Every day is hard. I wake up wishin’ it was time to go to sleep again, dreadin’ the day before it’s even happened.” His face moves through frustration and anger, glimpses of pain and despair between. “You have any idea what it’s like to just want to curl up in a ball and pretend the world doesn’t exist?”
“Yeah, I do,” I say. “I also know what it’s like to want to die. To know you’re too gutless to do it yourself, so you wish for something that’ll do it for you, like an illness, an accident, or a masochistic fucking father who hates the fact you breathe the same air as him.” Hooch’s eyes go wide, and I realize in that moment tears streak my cheeks. But fuck it—he needs to hear it. “I also know what it’s like to be hurt so bad that you finally believe that day has come, and in that second your foolishness and selfish thoughts come back to haunt you. What it’s like to realize when you’re faced with your own mortality that you don’t want to die … you just wish you were someone else, living another life.”
“Dagne—”
“Ah.” I lift my finger to stop him. “Nope. I’m not finished, mister.”
A small smile plays at the corner of his lips, and he reaches out to wipe my tears. “Carry on.”
“What you have to face is that you have the power to be somebody else. Fuck what your head tells you, Hooch. Your mind is a goddamn liar. It feeds off your fear, shows you your flaws while hiding your strengths. If you’re not happy,” I say, jabbing him in the chest, “change it. Do something about it. But don’t quit.”
“I’ve tried.” He captures my hand, focusing on the flesh of my palm as he traces the lines with his finger. “I really have, but my battery’s run dry, girl.”
“No,” I say, shaking my head. “It hasn’t. You just haven’t found what charges it yet.”
 
How much suffering can a man withstand before he finally breaks? A question I used to ask myself often. Now I know the answer.

As president of the Fallen Aces MC Fort Worth chapter, I’m looked to for guidance in times of crisis. I’m expected to set personal grievances aside and lead by example. Yet how can I do that when those grievances robbed me of my family, my life? My reason to be at the head of the table?

My father: murdered. My baby sister: killed the same day. And my other sister? A mystery. I’m drowning in my desolation and yet nobody seems to care. Or maybe it’s the fact I won’t let them close enough to help? Either way, my losses are my own, and I’ll deal with them the only way I know how—by punishing myself.

I’ve got it all figured out, at least, I thought I did. Until one woman, a traveller passing by, unravels the master plan. I see it in her eyes, the same distance, the same feeling that she doesn’t belong—that her time here is wasted.

One woman who mirrors me in every way, and suddenly I find a reason to hold off the reaper a little longer. A reason to stay at the head of the table. A reason to show those who’ve hurt me that, although they brought the beast to its knees, I won’t lay down to die without a fight.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Turning Back [Turning 02] by J.A. Huss!

 
Excerpt!

   “So then what happened?” Bric asks.
   We’re sitting at our booth in the White Room. Before I left, I’d sit in the middle of the bench, Quin would sit across from me in a chair, and Bric would sit to my left.
   Bric is still to my left, Quin isn’t here yet—if he’s coming at all—and Adley is in her baby seat on my right.
   Everything is familiar—but off.
   “Then he went to bed.”
   “What’d you do?”
   “I sat there on the couch for a while trying to figure out what happened.”
   “What did you come up with?” Bric is looking very intently at me. Like everything I’m saying is critically important.
   “He hate-fucked me, that’s what I came up with, Bric!”
   “Rochelle,” Bric says, throwing me one of those Don’t overreact looks.
   “I’m serious. There’s no other explanation for it. He hate-fucked me. Revenge fuck. Whatever you want to call it. That’s what happened last night.” I sigh and try not to feel depressed and sad. “And then this morning I got out of bed to go check on Adley when she woke up, and when I came back, he was gone.”
   “Gone?” Bric asks. “Where’d he go?”
   “Just left,” I say. “I texted him. Asked if he’d be here for breakfast. And he never texted back.”
   “He’s just mad,” Bric says.
   “I know.” I huff. “He told me that last night too. He spelled it out very clearly. He was worried about me. Sad about my leaving. But then when I came back—”
   “Now he’s just angry.”
   “Right.”
   “It’s a pretty typical reaction,” Bric says.
   “I realize that. Which is why I’m not going to make a big deal about this. But I don’t know if this is going to work, Bric. He might not want me. He might just want to hurt me. Exactly the way I hurt him.”
   “No,” Bric says, like I’m being ridiculous.
   “I’m not being ridiculous,” I say. “Maybe he’s not out to hurt me. But he’s doing something, Bric. He’s playing a game, but I’m pretty sure we’re not all playing the same game.”
   “He’s mad, Rochelle. You have to expect that. He’s gonna come around.”
   “What does that mean? Come around? Do you really think he’s gonna fall back in love with me the way he was? Because I don’t. I think he’s here for us. Me, you, and him together. And that’s all.”
   Bric rubs his hand across his scratchy jaw as he thinks this over, so I check on Adley. She fell asleep in the car on the way over here and hasn’t woken up yet. Bric is still thinking.
   “I don’t want an us, Bric.”
   He looks me in the eye and says. “I do. But I get it. And I’m fine with you and Quin getting your little happy ending. But I’m telling you, Rochelle, he’s just trying to protect himself right now and the best way to let him work that out and ensure you two get back together is to have an us.”
   “He said he doesn’t trust me.”
   “He has a good reason,” Bric counters.
   “I know that,” I say, starting to get angry. “I understand that. But the whole point of us doing this… game… or whatever it is, was so that you can help me figure this out. I want him, Bric. You’re supposed to help me.”
   But as soon as the words come out of my mouth I realize how stupid that is. I trust no one and I have very good reasons for that. I’ve learned over the course of my life that people are selfish. People are out for themselves. People are liars. I have a lot of experience in being lied to.
   Elias Bricman definitely fits all those assumptions I have about people. And then some.
 
I lived in the dark for three years. My whole world revolved around the whims and happiness of three men. It was just a trip into the forbidden. A way out of a bad situation and forward into nothingness.
 
Quin, with his easy smile and charming good looks. He was always there for me... Until he wasn’t.
 
Smith, and his dispassionate attention. He was never there for me and he never regretted it.
 
Bric, the one who listened, but only to himself. Self-absorbed, self-obsessed, and self-serving. He was never the one I wanted.
 
And now he might be the only one I have left.
 
It was good while it lasted, I guess. But it could’ve been so much more. It could’ve been so much better.
 
And that’s why I’m turning back.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: The Forgotten Child [The Friessen Legacy 01] by Lorhainne Eckhart!


In THE FORGOTTEN CHILD, Brad Friessen wasn’t looking to love again. But what he got was a woman who shook his lonely bitter world upside down, and touched him in a way no other woman could.

Emily Nelson, a courageous young mother, ends a loveless, bitter marriage and strikes out on her own. She answers an ad as a cook and live-in caregiver to a three-year-old boy on a local ranch. Ranch owner Brad Friessen hires and moves in Emily and her daughter. But Emily soon discovers something’s seriously wrong with the boy, and the reclusive, difficult man who hired her can’t see the behavior and how delayed his son is. So Emily researches until she stumbles across what she suspects are the soft signs of autism. Now she must tell him, give him hope, and help him come to terms with this neurological disorder—to take the necessary steps to get his child the help he needs.

As their lives become intertwined, their attraction is unavoidable—a connection sparks between them. But just as they’re getting close, Brad’s estranged wife, Crystal, returns after abandoning the family two years earlier. Among the shock and confusion is one disturbing question Brad can’t shake: How does Crystal know so much of his personal business, the inner working of the ranch, and Emily’s relationship with his son?

Crystal must’ve had a plan, as she somehow gains the upper hand, driving a wedge in the emotional bond forged between Brad, Emily, and the children. The primary focus for care and therapy of three-year-old Trevor is diverted. The lengths to which Crystal will go, the lies, the greed, just to keep what’s hers, are nothing short of cold and calculating. Emily’s forced out of the house. Brad fights to save his boy, to protect what’s his, and struggles over his greatest sacrifice—Emily, and the haunting question: Has he lost her forever?

More Than Skin Deep
by New York Times bestselling author Margo Bond Collins

★☆★Shifting's more than skin deep. And terror goes to the bone.★☆★

A Shifter Shield Novel

Having eliminated the shifter community's stalker and agreed to care for a pile of new baby lamias, child counselor and weresnake Lindi Parker believes she'll be able to settle into her newly domestic life with her mongoose-shifter boyfriend, Kade Nevala.

But she didn't count on being on duty at her new job as a Shifter Shield when a hyena-shifter shows up requesting asylum—along with his girlfriend. She's a Hunter from a hereditary clan of monster trackers, and a semi-mythical figure of dread among shifters. Worse, they have an entire werewolf pack after them, howling for their blood.

Now they’re after Lindi, too.


Get weresnake Lindi Parker's latest adventure in this bestselling series that “…takes shifter fantasy to a new and exciting realm” ~Amazon reviewer

Buy your copy from Amazon, Barnes and Noble or iBooks

Excerpt!

   The door of the Fort Worth, Texas, Shifter Shield office slammed open, hitting the wall behind it so hard I was afraid it would leave a dent. A couple dashed in and shut the door behind them. The man threw the bolt locks and scanned the rest of our limited additional security. While he did this, the woman strode up to the desk and purposefully placed both hands flat on the surface. She leaned forward, almost into my personal space, and said, “We need to see the lamia.”
   I assumed she meant me—as I was the only adult snake-shifter in the area, and perhaps in existence, she almost had to. However, the enormous ax sticking up over her head from between her shoulder blades suggested that perhaps I didn’t need to see them—not without getting a sense of who they were and why they were invading my workspace.
   I work with frantic people for a living, though. I pulled on my counselor face—smooth, bland, and only mildly interested in whatever it was that had gotten my clients (or in this case, the ax-wielding blonde and her boyfriend) stirred up.
   I leaned back in the office chair and tented my fingers in front of me. “Why?”
   “She is the only one we can speak to,” the woman ground out from between clenched teeth.
   I raised one eyebrow and waited. It was a technique I found I used as much as a Shield as I did in my other job as a children’s counselor. People want to fill silences. In the meantime, I used the few seconds of quiet as an opportunity to study the pair.
   In terms of appearance, they were exact opposites. She was leggy, but small, with incredibly pale skin and long hair so blond it was almost white.
   He was taller, a light-skinned black man with luminous brown eyes. Pulling in a breath across the half-shifted Jacobson’s organ in the top of my mouth, I parsed out what I could of their scents. They were obviously lovers, their individual scents interwoven so completely that it was difficult to differentiate them.
   Difficult, but not impossible.
   He was some kind of shifter—something I’d never smelled before—and she was… Well, she was baseline human. There was something else there that I had never encountered before, though. To my weresnake senses, it smelled wild, but didn’t taste like anything shifter or animal. But it carried that fizz along the edge, like a lightly carbonated drink, that suggested it belonged to the paranormal.
   Yeah—whatever she was, she was definitely supernatural.
   “Maybe I can help you?” I asked, working to keep my voice low and my tone mild.
   They exchanged a look full of information that I couldn’t interpret, and then the man stepped up. “We must speak to the lamia. She is, we believe, the only one who might believe us—might trust us.” His voice was musical, the word spoken in the accent of some African country.
   I chewed on the inside of my bottom lip as I considered the couple in front of me. I inhaled another breath, trying to taste intentions in the air molecules. All of my own senses were telling me that they were nervous, but not actively hiding anything. They weren’t lying. They definitely thought I would be able to help them.
   After a long moment, I nodded and sat up straight. “I’m Lindi Parker. I’m the one you’re looking for.”

The Shifter Shield Series

She's lucky he's a charmer. He's lucky she doesn't bite. Much.

Lindi thought she was the only shapeshifter left. Then she fell for the man whose clan wiped hers out.

Review Blitz: Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward!

 
Publication date: 10th April 2017
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis:
I met Bianca in an elevator.

She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.
The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.

 
She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.
Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn't appreciate the simple things in life.

So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn't want it to end.

I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.

I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot.
I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.

I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.

And she was falling for two men.
Only, both men were me.
And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.
Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn't prepared for what came after.

All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

I've read and loved the other books that these author's have co-written together, so I was really looking forward to reading another one from them! I've also read quite a few of their standalone books too and I loved those books as well! I was really excited when I received my ARC of this book that I started reading it straightaway! I loved the plot of this book! I didn't necessarily agree with what the main male character did, but I was able to forgive it because of the sexual tension between him and the main female character lol! The sexual tension between them leaked off the pages and it was a factor that really made me want to read on! The plot also had a few seriously hot scenes in it too! There were also quite a few secrets brought to light in the plot! I wasn't expecting one particular secret, so I was left very surprised! It changed the plot quite a lot too! There wasn't any suspense or action in the plot, which did disappoint me a little, but the romance between the two main characters was definitely enough! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Bianca was the main female character, and before the events of this book, Bianca had already been burned in relationships, so I could understand why she was resistant to start something with her love interest! I'm so happy she did though lol! Bianca also discovered quite a few secrets in this book, which did make me feel sorry for her, but Bianca was strong and wanted to do the right thing, even though it was scary! This made me have a lot of respect for her! I also connected with Bianca all the way through this book, and I loved how she let go and how relaxed she was when she was with her love interest! Dexter 'Dex' was the main male character and love interest of Bianca! I guess I could refer to Dex as Dex or Jay lol! I didn't agree with what Dex did in this book with pretending to be someone else, but in a way I could understand why he wanted to test Bianca! He wanted her to not judge him because of his name, which I understood! I loved Dex in this book! He was seriously hot and made me laugh quite a lot! It takes a lot to make me laugh whilst reading a book, but Dex did make me laugh out loud at points! I also loved the way Dex was with Bianca! It was easy to see his feelings develop for her and how much he loved her! I loved that this book was written from both Bianca and Dex's point of views! I was obviously expecting this book to be written from dual point of view as it's co-written! It really helped me connect more with both characters and it allowed for more things to happen in the plot! I also couldn't tell which author wrote which character lol! Their writing flowed perfectly though, which I loved! I also can't wait to see if these authors are going to release more books together! I've loved all the books that they're written together, so I really hope that they continue to write more books! I can't wait to read the separate books from these authors that I haven't read yet too! The cover for this book is seriously hot! I loved it as soon as I saw it! The model is the perfect Dex too! I also love how well the cover suits the other covers that these authors have co-written! Big thank you to Inkslinger PR, Vi and Penelope for an ARC of Mister Moneybags!
