Love Me Tomorrow by Maria Luis

69712432_917884931924676_4482526718225022976_n

They call her America’s Sweetheart.
And me? I’m the so-called “inked god” she dumped on TV.
I’ve tried to forget her. I’ve tried to move on.
Until I discover that her family is opening a new restaurant next to my tattoo parlor.
If I were a gentleman, I’d offer my congratulations and go my own way.
If I were a gentleman, I’d let her be . . . but I’m not.
Savannah Rose may claim I’m nothing more than a friend, but that slight hitch in her breath whenever I get too close says that America’s sweetheart is nothing but a liar.
All it takes is one scorching kiss, and I vow in her ear: “You’re going to beg, Savannah. Beg me to touch you, beg me to give you more, and if you’re real good, maybe I’ll do it all over again before you have to beg for that too.”
I’m no gentleman.
But Savannah Rose? She’s no one’s sweetheart but mine.

My review

Forbidden attraction

Family secrets

Friends to enemies to lovers

This book has it all!

Savannah has known – and crushed on – Owen for years, since he was dating her younger sister Amelie. Owen has reciprocated, but neither knew how the other felt and with him having dated Amelie they both thought the other was off limits. When Savannah is roped into appearing on a Bachelor-style reality show and Owen is one of the contestants, she is shocked. Knowing she has real feelings but thinking it can’t happen has her sending him home before the competing even begins.

But fate/the universe/meddling keeps pushing these two together.

This book was so good. Savannah is a strong, capable, successful woman who rocks it at her job. Owen has built his own business into a success all on his own. They come from different worlds and vastly different backgrounds, but they have a connection that can’t be denied.

AUTHOR BIO

Maria Luis is the author of sexy contemporary romances, though she may or may not have a few historical romances hiding in the cobwebs of her computer.

When she’s not writing about strong men and the sassy women who sweep them off their feet, Maria is a historian who specializes in medieval England and 19th century New Orleans. What do the two eras have in common, you ask? Not much, except for disease, scandalous activities and crime–Maria’s favorite topics.

Maria lives in New Orleans with her better half, where she can generally be found hiking with her two dogs, Zeus and Athena, kayaking in Louisiana’s inter-coastal waterways, or curled up on the couch with a good book.

A wife, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met even though her favorite hockey player calls her…mom.

About Rochelle Paige:
I absolutely adore reading—always have and always will. When I was growing up, my friends used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year’s resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me, “About time!”

The Billionaire’s Secret by Nana Malone

 

 

Title: The Billionaire’s Secret
Series: The Billionaire Duet #2

Author: Nana Malone

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 17, 2019

 

Blurb
It was supposed to be a simple job. Go to the Winston Isles, stand in for my billionaire double for a few weeks.But between the kidnapping attempt and accidentally falling in love with my bodyguard, things have been far from simple.

The good news, at least now the woman I love knows who I really am. The bad news is, no one else knows and someone is still trying to kill me.

I came to the Winston Isles to save my mother’s life, now I’ve got so much more than I bargained for. The trick will be to hold on to my brand new life and not get killed in the process.

 

My review:

This is the conclusion to Bodyguard to the Billionaire and they must be read in order. When Bodyguard ended, Zia and Theo were on a beach with a beaten and unconscious Derrick. Secret picks up in the same spot and continues the story. Zia and the rest of Royal Elite have to discover who is behind Derrick’s kidnapping and the attempted abductions of Theo. Many characters cross over all of the books, and it’s like seeing old friends again. I love that although a particular couple’s book may be finished, their story is not and we get more of their lives in each of the duets in this series.

This was a nice, strong ending to a well written duet. There was a lot going on, sure, but it all tied in and was not confusing. I will note that there was one attempted rape scene that may affect some readers but it was handled very well within the story and was not simply gratuitous violence.

This duet is most definitely worth reading. It is exciting and action packed, with a little bit of romance thrown in but not sappy and annoying. Zia, like the other women in these books, is a badass who can handle herself in almost any situation. Theo is good for her.

Excerpt

Zia…
Liar.

 

Conman.


Duplicitous fuck.

 

As I leaned against the wall of the makeshift medical room we’d set up in the penthouse, I thought about the two versions of the man I had started to fall for. 
Two versions of one of the richest men in the world. One of them was a billionaire, Derrick Arlington. And the other was someone I didn’t know.
 
And currently, one of them was bleeding all over what looked like a massage table.
 
I’d fallen in love with a mirage. None of what I’d felt had been real.
 
As the doctor Royal Elite had on call worked to patch up Derrick, I watched them both. The resemblance was beyond uncanny. They were freaking identical.

 

No. You can tell them apart.

Right now, I could. But without the scruff and long hair, would I be able to?

 
I forced myself to take a closer look. To focus on what was different, what stood out.
 
For starters, Theo, or whoever the hell he was, had broken his nose. There was a slight bump in the ridge. It was barely noticeable, but it distinguished them. That and the eyes, that stormy gray, surrounded by thick lashes. They were the same shape and color, but Arlington’s were a little closer together. Or maybe a little wider. It was hard to tell now as he had a cut above one and it was nearly swollen shut.
 
Heightwise, they looked about the same, but I couldn’t be sure. They weighed about the same. And I only knew that because I’d helped drag Arlington off the beach with Theo, who had mumbled some bullshit about me not finding out that way. And sorry, sorry blah blah blah. If I was being honest, the shock had rendered me deaf and dumb right then.
 
But once the crisis was over, my voice was back, and I had a shit ton to say. Starting with Liar. Conman. Duplicitous fuck.
 
It didn’t matter what form of explanation came out of his mouth. As far as I was concerned, he was full of shit.

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantimeworks out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego.

If It’s Only Love, a sexy new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan is LIVE!

if it's only_amazon.jpg

Meet single dad Easton Connor as he leaves the NFL and returns to Jackson Harbor to fight for another chance with the love of his life.

***

I don’t regret much.

Not my decision to enter the NFL draft before finishing college.

Not fighting custody of my daughter—even if, biologically speaking, it turns out she’s not mine.

And certainly not seducing my buddy’s little sister ten years ago.

But when it comes to Shayleigh Jackson, my no-regrets attitude stops there. I screwed up royally where she’s concerned. Then I made another mistake when I let her shut me out of her life.

Now after more than a decade living in different time zones, I’m coming home to Jackson Harbor. My first priority is getting my daughter away from the media circus in LA, but the moment I see Shay, I know I’ll stop at nothing to win her back.

So what if she won’t speak to me? So what if she’s changed? So what if she’s fallen for some douchebag professor? I’ve never gotten over her and I know she feels the same about me. I’ve let her go twice. I won’t make that mistake again.

My review:

Shay has loved Easton since she was a little girl, when he was her big brother’s best friend. They had their own friendship but she never thought anything more could happen. Easton always had feelings for Shay, but circumstances were never right for them. Finally, they are living in the same town but Shay wants nothing to do with Easton.

This story is told both in present day and via flashbacks, all clearly  labeled thank goodness. There is a lot going on here, too. Both Easton and Shay have a LOT of baggage, both together and separate, and still accumulating in the present. I don’t know if it was the sheer amount of things happening or personalities but I had a hard time connecting with the characters, particularly Shay. She just seems younger than 30. The book isn’t bad by any means – it just didn’t have that something for me.

The Second Chance Supper Club by Nicole Meier

51wCwKW9aVL._SY346_

Two estranged sisters reunite in an emotional novel of family, forgiveness, lost hope, and new beginnings.

They had a forever bond, until a sudden tragedy thrust them apart. Now, each at a crossroad in her own life, two sisters’ paths are about to intersect.

Broadcast journalist Julia Frank has it all: a career, an ambitious fiancé, and the hard-won respect of her peers. Until a ruinous decision destroys her reputation, puts her job at risk, and sends her reeling toward the only soul left to turn to: her estranged sister, Ginny.

The owner of a clandestine supper club hidden in the Arizona desert, Ginny Frank has a lot on her plate. The last thing she wants is more drama—or the burden of nursing her younger sister’s wounded ego. But family is family. Besides, Ginny can use the help in more ways than one, and she’s going to make sure Julia pulls her weight.

As a tenuous reunion reopens old wounds, Julia and Ginny have no choice but to confront the pain and betrayals of the past. Will working to keep the secret supper club running be just what they need to find common ground and a path toward forgiveness, or will the increasing stress push them even further apart?

My review:

This is a captivating story of healing and reconnecting. When Julia’s career implodes in a huge way, she escapes to her home state of Arizona to regroup. She and her sister Ginny haven’t spoken in three years but Julia is following her instincts and shows up unexpectedly at her sister’s door. Ginny, meanwhile, is under intense financial pressure and her unending conflicts with her 21 year old daughter Olive exacerbate the feelings. The last thing she needs is her selfish little sister in her way making things worse.

I love how real this book feels. Julia and Ginny have a lot of hurt and anger to work through, even as they remember how much they love each other and forge a tenuous new connection. Things aren’t smoothed over in an instant but old resentments bubble out from time to time. Ginny and Olive also can’t seem to communicate without attacking each other, both resentful of the other for various reasons. But Julia is a good buffer between them and helps them to connect again as well.

I was so relieved that this is not a romance, either. There is a hint of something to come in the life of one character, but it doesn’t happen before the book ends and I am so glad. This is a story of family and forgiveness. Throwing in a gratuitous love story would take away from the beauty that is Julia and Ginny’s story.

Time to tap gloves, HEA guaranteed.

My review:

This book was so good! I really enjoyed Gage and Rocky’s story but I loved Rocky so much. But first of all, even though this is part of the BTU Alumni series, this truly is a standalone story. There is character crossover, but you don’t need information from the first book to understand this one (although it’s really good too, you should totally read it).

Ok now that’s out of the way.

Rocky. She is a fantastic female character. She is strong, she’s a skilled fighter, physical therapist, and an all around good person. Even though she has to deal with latent sexism from one of the people who should support her the most, she still works hard and does her best at all times. And she can easily hold her own with all the testosterone-filled fighters and athletes she is surrounded by daily.

Gage is a fighter with a secret. He’s also just moved across the country to be close to his family. He first meets Rocky in a local bar where she is being harassed by some drunk jerks, but is blown away when she takes care of them without needing him to step in like he had planned. That first meeting had him hooked and he was shocked to find out the next day that she is his new coach’s daughter.

This book was so fun to read. I loved the appearances by the other characters, especially the younger siblings. Those kids are going to take over the world one day! And the Coven group texts are priceless! We got a taste of the Coven in the previous book but we get so much more here and it’s everything. We all need a group of friends like that.

Excerpt

In the beginning, there were fireflies, crisp floating dots wading through the summer breeze.

There were children in the streets and popsicles being passed out by a local grandmother. There were skinned knees, too much sunscreen, and the wafting scent of freshly cut grass. There were long days and even longer nights.

Summers in Knox Ridge were just as much about mosquito nets and cicada songs as they were about lemonade and sunshine.

Knox Ridge wasn’t the biggest town in Georgia, but there were too many of us to learn each other’s names by heart. Most people grew up on the same street their parents did all those years ago.

They grew from a twinkle in their parents’ eyes into people who would one day take their places in the layout of our town. Their legacies casted shadows on every succeeding generation—what they’d do, where they lived, and who they loved. The town had a blueprint most didn’t question, but also didn’t consider too much.

Being a part of Knox Ridge was a privilege,” my Nana used to say.

It was a privilege to live around people who truly care for you and an honor to have a place like Knox Ridge to come home to.
“Every town on Earth says they’re the best,” Nana always said. “But how many towns can say ‘if you’re with us, we’ll accept every part of you?’”

Only Knox Ridge.
She swore that no one truly left Knox Ridge once they’d gotten a taste of living here, but some took breaks. She was right, some people drifted in and out of our sleepy town, but they always came back home. Even if they hadn’t realized they’d left.

I met Oliver Tanner one blistering afternoon in July.

He was five years old, moving back into the childhood home of his recently deceased father. I was four, sitting next door on my front porch with my best friend, Paige, munching on watermelon as we did nearly every afternoon.

Paige’s father had been my father’s best friend since childhood. Like I said, there was a blueprint to this town. Even Oliver with his ripped cargo shorts and dinosaur toys clenched tightly to his little chest. I had never seen anyone in that house. Not until they arrived.

“I never thought I’d live to see another Tanner live in that house,” my grandmother said.

I wouldn’t learn until years later the tumultuous history of the Tanner family in town. Once one of the most respected families of Knox Ridge, Oliver’s grandfather had left them disgraced and destitute three decades earlier when he ran off to California with a woman he barely knew. The Tanners had been on a downward spiral ever since.

“Well come on, sweeties,” my grandmother nudged Paige and myself. “Let’s go say hello. See if they need anything. That girl doesn’t look a day over twenty.”

Nana had been more or less right. Josey Tanner was twenty-five, freshly widowed, and out of money from living out west. Her only option was moving to this house she’d inherited from her husband’s passing and spread out his meager life insurance for as long as she could.

Nana introduced us to Oliver and his mother. Josey likewise introduced him to us.

“You got movers to help you with that truck?” Nana asked.

“No,” Josey said.

“Are you renting it by the hour or the day?”

“Day,” she answered. “I’ve got it rented for the whole week.”

Nana nodded before waving them both over. “No use doing anything now, then. Come over for some lemonade. My sons get off work at about five. They’ll wrangle up some friends to do it for you.”
That day was one of my first memories of Nana being Nana, pulling people together for the common good as she always did.

“Now you two be nice to the Tanner boy,” Nana told Paige and me. “He looks like he could use a bit of TLC.”

That day was also the day Ollie was entrusted to my keep. He was a year older than me, but back in those days, he was as large and loud as a church mouse. His sandy blonde hair stuck up in ways that defied gravity and he mostly muttered as we asked him about his dinosaurs.

We dragged him out back where all the magic happened, spending hours in the sun as the clouds and world passed us by. Our parents filtered in and out to keep an eye on us.

When the sun started to go down, and the fireflies started to peek out from their slumber, it was like his whole face lit up. I think that was the first time I knew I never wanted to stop looking at that smile.
