Release Blitz! Six Feet Under (Mad Love Duet #1) by Whitney Barbetti

Release Date: April 25, 2018
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

Synopsis

 
Six wasn’t the hero I needed.
But he was the man I wanted. And it was my selfish craving, the desire to own him, that would be our undoing. No one tells you that love is a disease. An infection that tears your heart apart, leaving you half the person you were before. A malady that leaves open wounds. An invisible disorder tracing scars in the places you couldn’t see if you weren’t looking for them. I was sick, but love didn’t heal me. Instead, it festered in my marrow, and drove me to unforgivable mistakes. Six was my first mistake, but he wouldn't be the last.

Synopsis

 
Six was always there, even when I didn’t want him.
But he couldn’t hold me together, and I couldn’t be his penance. Loss is a phantom limb. No one can see it, but the ache torments you in the night, distracts you during the day, and leaves you fragmented. I’m half a heart, half a soul, and nothing could cure the pieces he’d left behind. Losing him was safer than loving him. Because the love that kept us coming back again and again was nothing short of madness. But then, isn't mad love the most honest?

About the Author

 
Whitney Barbetti is really, truly awful at writing in the third person, so we're just going to change this bio up a bit and write it as first person.
I am married with two boys. When I'm not changing diapers or cutting food into tiny bites, I escape to Starbucks for hours. My blood pressure actually drops the moment I walk in, hear the baristas call my name, and inhale the aroma of coffee beans. And I don't even like coffee. I love music and have a playlist for everything. Queen is my very favorite. I like watching creepy shows when I am home alone but then I instantly regret them once my mind starts breeding irrational fears. I try to channel my fears into my books as a way to cope. I have about 20 bacon things in my fridge.

Cover Reveal! Stumbling Into Him by Molly O'Hare

Title: Stumbling Into Him
Author: Molly O'Hare
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 15, 2018 Cover Photo: iStock Photos Cover Art: Just Write. Creations
Holly has spent her whole life as a walking disaster, from running into walls, tripping over invisible objects, and always being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When a seemingly normal outing taking her overly opinionated Corgi for a walk resulted in an object to the face, she didn’t think her day could get any worse. The moment she opened her eyes and saw the Adonis standing over her, she knew she’d been wrong. It was about to get a whole lot worse.
Ben’s lived his whole life disobeying his uptight, self-centered, shrew of a mother. Instead of going into the family business, he followed his dreams and opened his veterinarian clinic. One ordinary day at the dog park, and a rogue dog toy later, he found himself captivated by the curvy woman that had a feistiness which set him on fire.
It could only get better from here, right? Too bad his mother had other plans.
“Watch out!”
Holly Flanagan heard a commotion coming from the other side of the park. Ignoring the shouting, she bent over focusing on picking up her Corgi, Waffles, most recent deposit. With Holly’s track record, though, she should have known anyone yelling “watch out,” “take cover,” or “that’s about to fall” was directed at her. Even after years of being the spokesperson for “unlucky,” “klutzy,” and “clumsy” she still disregarded the shouting as she carried on with her dog parent duties.
Before she could register what happened, she was knocked onto her back with a pain radiating from her mouth and nose.
“Well, at least the sky is pretty today,” Holly mumbled as she tried to get her bearings. She reached for her mouth as she felt the pain start to spread.
“Ma’am, are you okay?”
Holly closed her eyes pondering that exact question. Was she okay? She’d just been hit with something in her mouth. She was pretty sure some part of her face, she didn’t know which part, but she was sure something was bleeding. Waffles started barking uncontrollably, and her head hurt. So, was she okay?
Holly sighed. Yeah, she was fine. This was just another day for her, and so far, if being hit by an unknown projectile to the face was the worst thing that happened to her, she’d considered it a good day.
Opening her eyes, she gasped. Above her, only a mere few inches from her face was by far, the most handsome man she had ever laid eyes on. He had dark brown hair and deep blue eyes that were richer than the ocean. His jaw was chiseled, with a light dusting of scruff, in the Alpha male, I’m in charge here kind of way.
Wonderful. Okay, let’s add embarrassing yourself in front of a Greek God to your lists of attributes for the day. Hey, it can only get better from here, right?
She realized she was staring at him for what could have been considered too long. She quickly jerked her head forward trying to right herself. Unfortunately, for her, she slammed her head right into the Greek God’s forehead.

Much like any author out there, sleeping does not come easy to Molly. As it turns out, she has horrible insomnia . When she was younger, to help herself fall asleep she would recite stories. Each night she’d pick up where the story left off previously until the tale was complete. One morning, after she finished a particularly fun adventure, she decided she wanted to start sharing them with others. A few months later, here she is, sharing her lack of sleep with all of you. Who says the stories in our heads can’t be fun for others?
Also, she loves Fun Facts. New ones are at the end of each of her book. If you look close enough, some are hidden on her website too.

New Review! Masked Desire (The Masked Arcana #2) by Alana Delacroix 4 Cranky Stars

Masked Desire (The Masked Arcana, #2)Masked Desire by Alana Delacroix
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Cranky Stars


Masked Desire by Alana Delacroix is an interesting take on the fantasy realm. It has a wide mix of paranormal creatures, from Fey to vampires and even a unique inclusion of masquerada (a shape shifter who can take on the form of any face). It was a creative world that brought everything together in the shadow realms while humanity continued on naively in their minds.


Michaela (also known as Miaoling) is a very independent and headstrong female lead. She is a powerful masquerada, respected and sought after by all arcana species for her skills. I love her strength and determination to protect those she loves. She has a big heart, but she also has a dark past. One thing I love about main characters is the love they have for their family and friends, even if they lie to themselves and deny their true feelings. To me that safeguard and barrier is the ultimate show of how strong that character can love. Delacroix did a great job appealing to that aspect with Michaela with a great balance of give and take that allowed the character to develop from a hurt, lonely, and self-preserving female lead to a fully devoted, passionate, and selfless friend and lover to reveal her true self in time.


Cormac is your all powerful, sexy stud, and exiled fey. He is feared for his secrets that he keeps to himself. His only concern and focus is his home and his family. Cormac gets confronted with the stubborn and dominating Michaela when the two are stuck together solving a murder of a mutual coworker. Cormac struggles with his annoyance of Michaela through the good part of the book, until Michaela makes a naive mistake that takes an intriguing twist in the plot!


OOPS! I love a story that goes from annoyed and hated couples to an intense and passionate love that caught them unexpectedly. Masked Desire brought about that devotion between mated lovers in a suspenseful story about betrayal, loss, love, trust, acceptance and destiny.


Cons:
I can’t say too much wrong with this book. There could be a little clean up with editing errors and a bit more flare in some areas that seemed somewhat monotone, but all in all it works. It’s a bit chunky that disrupts the flow in some spots. Editing errors aside, the story is catchy and the plot is fascinating.

What the What?
One thing with this that made me giggle was the choice of kiss placement. Michaela and her distrust of others has her safeguarding herself from intimacy. She sets rules that are limiting when it comes to intimacy, a major one being no kissing on the lips. I found myself chuckling at this, because it left little places for Cormac to lay a big one on her. Instead of kissing the cheek, or even the tip of the nose or forehead, our sly sexy Fey chose the ear to place his kisses. I laughed on a couple occasions when he would go to kiss Michaela goodbye, lean in and plant it on her ear. Or if he came up behind her and brushed her hair aside, he placed a kiss on her ear. No sexy nibbling of the lobe or gentle bites on the neck or pecks on the cheek. I wonder if he has a thing for sexy ears… Watch out for those taters Cormac! LOL

New Review! The Healer (An Accalia Series Novella: Davina) by H.L. Girton 5 Cranky Stars

The Healer: An Accalia Series Novella: Davina (The Accalia Series #3)The Healer: An Accalia Series Novella: Davina by H.L. Girton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars


I will be the first to admit I wasn’t sold on Davina in The Accalia and The Curse but I knew there had to be more to her than was let on. I’m proud to shout out that I am now a Davina fan!! I get her because in a lot of ways I am her.


Davina just wants to be part of the pack. She is a healer just like her family before her but being raised by wolves has her confused about her role in life. While the pack is away she is stuck in her house with Chuck and the others left behind. Sonya sends her on a mission to her grandmothers and it’s here she goes on a journey of self-discovery and finds who she is truly meant to be.


I wanted to read this awesome story outside to really connect with Davina and her love of nature. I opted for opening the curtains and the window and diving on in.


It’s a novella so it’s a quick read but it’s so needed. It answers a lot of questions you may have had from previous books without being overwhelming and repetitive. It’s a story of finding your true self and being who you are meant to be in this crazy big world. I think Davina is destined for great things. H.L. Girton has converted me but then again I have always connected to the misunderstood misfits.

New Review! Secrets in Blood (In Blood #1) by Patricia Eddy 5 Cranky Stars

Secrets in Blood (In Blood, #1)Secrets in Blood by Patricia D. Eddy


5 Cranky Stars


Nicola thought he was a goner until he met his captor’s daughter. Would she be his key to freedom or would she become a tasty midnight snack for the captured vampire?


I really loved that the author gave us intricate details of Nicola and Evangeline’s lives. I really felt that Evangeline grew into a strong female character throughout the story. I hated her father, I could not for the life of me figure him out. He was like a seven-band puzzle ring that you buy from a Ren Fest, and you can’t put it back together. Why would you do that to someone you are supposed to love? WHY?


The story sucked me in and kept me interested in the plot. I was hooked until the very end. Kudos to the author for putting a fresh twist on a tale as old as time. I will definitely be recommending this book to my fellow vampire fanatics. I got the bullhorn ready to declare my love for this book.

New Review! Clinched (Fighting Love #2) by Nikki Ash 4 Cranky Stars

Clinched (Fighting Love #2)Clinched by Nikki Ash
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Cranky Stars


In the beginning I was bored but then it picked up. I’ll have to admit I don’t read many books like this, but once the story got rolling it was good. The story was not overly dramatic and the story was like a real life type of situation. I could feel the emotions of ALL of the characters. The main characters Charlie and Tristan truly belong to each other. Everyone has a past and has secrets. Being able to open up and tell the person that wants to be with you about your past and that person still love you, is what Charlie needed.


Charlie went from an abusive relationship to a wonderful man (Tristan) who has also been through his own set of trials. Together, they take things slow at first learning about each other. By the end of the book, everything comes to the surface and the twists and turns are crazy. Don’t always believe what you see or hear.
