Love Profound by Kelly Elliott Blog Tour & Review

 

 

 

I write about love, but I’ve never experienced it. Sure, I’ve been with guys that I cared about. Even thought I found ‘the one’. He turned out to be the frog and not the prince.

A few Frank Sinatra songs and a wildly handsome cowboy who calls me Darlin’, will have me second guessing everything I ever thought I knew about love.

Does happily ever after really exist…or is it only something I write about in books?

Love Profound is book two in the Cowboys and Angels series.

This is 2nd book is Wade and Amelia’s story and it is a very sweet, light and enjoyable read.

 

Amelia is the baby of the Parker family and I really love how her character is full of life. She’s funny, outgoing and is a Romance author who doesn’t believe love will happen for her.

 

I loved at Wade at first sight.  Everything about this cowboy screamed hotness.   He’s suffered the loss of his family and is undecided in the direction his life is taking.  Until Trevor, one of the Parker Brothers offers him a job on their ranch.

 

What I enjoyed most about this story is how the characters developed a strong friendship before an actual romantic relationship happened.  Both were hurt in the past and we’re hesitant to follow their hearts so they really took things slow.  The chemistry between Wade and Amelia’s was so thick you could cut a knife through it.  There was no doubt these two were went for each other. I really enjoyed following Wade and Amelia’s on their sweet, hot and hilarious journey. I tip my hat off to Ms.  Elliot for adding April the giraffe into this plot, because seriously that was totally me during that process.  I love how we are introduced to the next characters and I can’t wait for more Cowboys and Angels.  If you looking for a story with little drama but a very sweet, passionate storyline than this is your book.

One Call Away by Emily Goodwin Release Blitz & Giveaway

 

 

 

Title: One Call Away
Author: Emily Goodwin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Small Town Romance, Second Chances Standalone
Release Date: September 21, 2017

 

 

 

 


 

 

Chase Henson doesn’t play by the rules. He doesn’t let himself get attached, doesn’t stay in one place long enough to call anywhere home. So when he returns to the small town of Summer Hill for the first time in years, the last thing he expects to find is a reason to stay.

Sierra Belmont is lost. After a sudden loss that left her heart broken in a million pieces, Sierra is just barely getting by. Burying herself in work at Summer Hill’s only bookstore, all she wants to do is make it through another day.

And then Chase comes in to buy a book. Rumors that he’s dangerous fly through the town, but Sierra isn’t afraid of him. He might be the last person she should be with, but he’s the only one who understands the depth of her pain. For the first time, Chase stands still, fighting the desperation to mend Sierra’s broken heart. 

Always running, the past has never had a chance to catch up to Chase. But there’s a first time for everything.

 

 

 

 

WOW!!!! This book was so beautifully written and was so full of raw emotions I finished this book hours ago and still am thinking about these characters. This is a book that I will not forget and characters I am sure I will still be thinking about days and maybe weeks later.

 

This book will literally hook you from page one and you will find yourself many times holding your breath waiting for the other shoe to fall. You will fall in love with these characters. The characters were full of flaws and that just made them seem so real.   I was able to connect with them and dear lord, those voicemails that Sierra left Jake had me sobbing.

 

I don’t want to get into plot and spoil all the twists and turns the author has waiting for you. I went into this book blind and didn’t read the synopsis just knew that if Emily Goodwin wrote it that it was going to be good and man she didn’t disappoint with this one.

 

The chemistry and relationship between Sierra and Chase felt real. I loved the back and forth banter and they really just got each other. Nothing about their relationship felt forced or unrealistic.  My heart broke for both of them and at thee same time I was their biggest cheerleader!

 

  “I don’t know what I find more curious: the creativity of your lies or the ease of which you tell them.” He smiles, finishes chewing, and says. “Either way, that’s a compliment.”

 

This book was emotional, sexy and sweet and had me hooked from cover to cover. The plot wasn’t cookie cutter and was fresh and exciting and just what I needed. There isn’t one thing about this book I would want to see written differently. I am looking forward to more from this author. I love her writing style. It is flawless.

 

 

 

Colleen MC (The Book Lover) – “….captivating read and one that has made it into my list of 2017 favourites.”


Julia (The Romance Bibliophile) – “One Call Away was sweet, sexy, and utterly addicting, and one of my TOP FAVORITE romances of the year.”


Kelly (Kelly’s Nerdy Obsession) – “Emily writes beautifully. Her words are like a piece of art.”

Excerpt

I flinch, glad he can’t see me across two thousand miles. Even working in the kitchens most nights only covers my food, my textbooks. Not the tuition bill. “You’re the one who wanted him to work for you. You’re the one who made him the stake in our last game.”

“And you’re the one who lost,” he says lightly.

“Do you know where he is?”

“Of course. Like you said, he works for me. I would be a careless employer if I let my men go wandering off, gambling and racking up debt and questioning their loyalty to me.”

A shiver runs through me. “Then where is he?”

“He’s a grown-up, Penny. Like you are now. He’s responsible for himself. You only need to worry about your studies. I’m sure Algebraic Topology is taking up plenty of your focus.”

It’s one of my courses this semester. How does he know that?

“Stop playing with me.”

“Why should I?” he says with a soft laugh. “It’s so much fun.”

Frustration stings my eyes, hot and damp. I look up at the wide-open sky, willing myself not to cry. There are a million stars visible here, most of the land owned by Smith College or one of the other campuses. So much land, so much pride. There aren’t buildings climbing on top of other buildings, as if they might sink into the concrete ground if they don’t. There aren’t glass towers reaching to an endless black sky.

“I’m never coming back,” I say abruptly.

His laugh falls silent. “I know.”

“I hate it there. I hate Tanglewood and being powerless. And most of all I hate you.”

The last part is a lie, because I don’t hate him. I’m drawn to him; I’m repelled by him. It’s far too complex a relationship, an equation I’ve never been able to write. It makes me wonder if I’m lying about the other parts—if maybe some twisted part of me misses home.

If some twisted part of me misses being powerless, too.

“Ah, Penny,” he says, sounding infinitely weary. “I hate you too.”

The words shock me, but the hurt inside shocks me more. He shouldn’t be able to wound me. Three years away from home, growing up, growing strong. It should have been enough armor to protect against anything he could say to me. But the arrow sinks deep, proving that I’ll never be able to escape him.

“What did I do to you?” I ask, quiet, in a voice like I’m six years old again. Like I’m speaking to the wild boy I found by the lake, one I lured into my trailer like a wolf.

He answers the same way, a surly teenage boy, fierce and vulnerable at once. “You made me care. You made me want, when I needed to leave. You made me feel, when I would have preferred to die. You brought me back to life.”

And I condemned him to torture. That’s what happened when he sacrificed himself so that I could stay safe. Two children with so few choices. “I’m sorry,” I whisper.

“Don’t worry. I got my revenge, after all.”

My blood runs cold, almost subzero at the words. There’s only one person left in my sad little family. One person he could hurt. “Did you hurt him?”

“By giving him a job when he couldn’t hold one down? By paying him enough that his daughter could escape the city, could go to a fancy college instead of becoming a corner-store whore? Yes, I’ve been horrible to him. A monster.”

“Then why isn’t he answering his phone?”

In the pause I can picture him in a three-piece suit, reclining in one of his ridiculously expensive leather chairs. Some amber liquid in a crystal-cut glass. “Don’t come back,” he says, his voice grim. “You made it out of here. Let that be enough.”

A soft click ends the connection, leaving me bereft.

And more worried than before.

Something is happening in Tanglewood, something bad enough for my father not to call, something horrible enough that even Damon Scott has warned me away. I look up at the infinite stars, but they’re dimmer than before. The whole world muted. It wasn’t a new life that I found so far from home. It was a long dream, and now I’m painfully awake.

 

 

 

 

 

First and foremost you must read book 1, The King prior to reading book 2 in this series.  If you haven’t read book 1 this review might contain spoilers.

 

Now on to the review, Skye Warren is like the queen of darkness, seriously this author knows her stuff.  This is not my first rodeo reading a book by this author and anytime I see her name attached to it there’s no stopping me.  This series as well as this book is filled with suspense, thrills, mystery, and sexy characters.

 

The Queen is the final book and the end of Damien and Penny’s dark, painful and twisted history.   At the end of the first book, Damien makes the ultimate sacrifice to keep Penny safe and now 3 years later, Penny comes back to Tanglewood as someone evil who continues to play games with others lives.

 

I adored Damien and Penny.  Their connection and sacrifices goes back years.  Some might think Penny was only six but at that age she had a bond with Damien. She was drawn to him from the very start.  Damien even though is vicious and cold blooded, he has a heart of gold when it comes to Penny.  He doesn’t want the darkness and evil that surrounds him to mark anymore than it has.  His need to protect her and have her near was touching and sneaky.

 

Penny is so smart, innocent and knows her worth with Damien, and I loved how this girl plays that part of the game to her advantage.  Damien looks like he has it all and at the Den and in Tanglewood he’s feared but also wanted by many.  The only person that makes him weak and brings him light is Penny.  I loved every single moment these two shared. This was the perfect conclusion to this magnificent series. There were no questions left unanswered and this book wasn’t riddled with overdone sex scenes, don’t get me wrong this is Skye Warren so we do get some pretty hot,steamy scenes. Highly recommend!

Synopsis
 
 
 

Fate is a fickle mistress. No matter a man’s desires, she tends to give with one hand, and take with the other. Good or bad, it doesn’t matter to her, as long as there’s balance.

 

Ralph Lewis, otherwise known as Po’Boy, made one decision that changed the trajectory of his entire life. On the losing end of a schoolyard fight, he’d been on his back in the dust, glaring up at the boy who’d flattened him. Had watched unbelieving as that same boy stretched out his hand, offering to help Ralph to his feet. Against every instinct, he had accepted.

 

In that instant, he went from friendless pariah to having a partner and ally. For the first time in his life, he was respected … and feared. Po’Boy spent the next decade defending his position at his best friend’s side. Life was good. Fate has a way of taking back the reins, though.

 

A long-ago action places him directly in the crosshairs of their enemies, and circumstances force Po’Boy’s hand. Members of motorcycle clubs, men like him who live an outlaw’s life don’t treat kindly with traitors, and in their world, that is what Po’Boy has become.

 

With events threatening to pull him away from everything he holds dear, he’s made to walk a careful line to keep those he loves safe. Bound by silence, for his brothers’ sake, he’ll suffer through the worst thing that can happen to a man who lives and breathes the brotherhood. Out Bad.

Excerpt

From Chapter Five

Po’Boy opened his eyes a slit to see a figure looming over him
in the darkness. The flaring light from the bonfire was barely enough to let
him recognize an ally, Wrench. A CoBo member who had known Penny her entire
life. One who had a thing for her once, giving way when Twisted staked his
claim. Wrench was looking down at Po’Boy, and he was about to sit up and greet
him when the expression on the man’s face caught his attention.

It was avid. Hungry.

Wrench’s gaze was trailing along Po’Boy’s form, pausing at his
chest, then moving down to his crotch. His nostrils flared, and the muscles in
his jaw tensed, jumping as he ground his teeth together.

Aroused.

Po’Boy’s cock twitched, and the movement must have been
visible because he watched as Wrench’s tongue came out in a languorous swipe
across his bottom lip. What the fuck?

A sound from by the bonfire pulled Wrench’s gaze away, and he
took a step backwards, then two, before turning and stalking into the darkness.

What. The. Fuck?

Just like her previous book This Is The Route Of Twisted Pain, MariaLisa deMora took me on another wonderful journey.  A journey of acceptance and love.   Every time I read a book by this author I’m left feeling emotionally satisfied.

We learned a little bit about Po’Boy in this book. I knew his past was dark but I was glad to learn more about his harsh past.  What I didn’t know was just how painful and raw it would be.  The club, his brothers and his family are his priority.  There’s nothing he wouldn’t do for his club even if it means to deny his true identity.

 

I love how the author takes her time introducing these very complex characters.  There are three in this book Po’boy, Wrench and Chrissy.  We get know each character’s back story and are really able to connect with them on a personal level.  Each character has a purpose and in this particular story I got to see why they truly had a special connection.

 

Chrissy, Po’boy and Wrench each have a story to tell and each story screamed to be told.  I enjoyed how we get in their heads and get to know their feelings, fears and fantasies.  These three are hot, sexy and infectious. While this story brings three people together with the promise of love and acceptance we also get some suspense as an added bonus, after all this is an MC read.  We are introduced to new characters in this book, not only friends but enemies.  Just when I thought things would settle the author brings thing up a notch.  Yes this story focuses on Po’boy but it also focuses on Wrench and how they both feel about their true identities and if they will be accepted by the MC and the brothers. Highly recommend!

 
 

 

In The Series

 

 

Legends are born from moments like these. Folktales spun around a single point in time so perfect, you can almost hear the click resonating through the universe as things align.George Bell, aka Twisted, knows the odds are against him. Have been all his life. Born in a Louisiana bordello, raised around the rough and rowdy men of a motorcycle club, he’s never been the lucky type. But he believes luck can change, so when fate gives him a glimpse of breathtaking beauty, he’s more than willing to roll the dice. Chancing upon what could be the woman of his dreams, he’s prepared to push this streak as far as he can.

Penny Dane’s background gives her an edge in the life she’s chosen to lead. Raised in a can-do family, she’s resilient, rolling with life’s punches and landing on her feet. But, when the past holds painful secrets—when a single misstep can turn deadly—can she trust the passion this man stirs in her?

On the surface, Bell and Penny don’t work. Their mismatched worlds are too different. But like a backwater bayou, what you see is not the whole story, there are mysteries buried underneath. Penny is the red-haired beauty caught up in a web of lies. Bell is like no one she’s ever met before. The problem is, he knows it.

early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library,
devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she
says “I’ve always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and
found I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available,
I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.”

publishing company for a couple decades.

Music is a driving passion, and she says, “I love music of nearly any
genre — jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap,
hip hop … you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing
through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live
music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars
[read: small, intimate venues]. If said bar [venue] has a good selection
of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”

His Lucky Penny (The Penny Books, #1) by L.L. Meyer **Debbie’s Review**

 

 

Synopsis

 

After losing his parents as a teenager, Dane has learned to keep things simple. He’s happy with the life he’s built for himself, a life filled with easy girls, good times with his brother, and a job he loves. There’s nothing missing.

Until he meets her.

Lily has learned the hard way that nothing in life is free. And she’s flat-out broke – in every possible way. With her head down, she keeps to the shadows and lets life pass her by. All that matters is putting one more day safely behind her.

Until he’s lifting her chin.

Suddenly, nothing is safe or simple, and soon the walls they’ve been hiding behind begin to crumble. But to what end? Dane is definitely no one’s hero, and Lily is surely no one’s prize. Yet somehow they’re exactly what the other needs.

Just when they think they’ve got it all figured out, Lily’s past comes calling. That one last price life’s been trying to exact from her? It’s about to come due.

I went into this story blind. I had no idea what I was getting into. Holy Cow this book was not what I was expecting but just what I needed to read.

 

  YOUR PANTIES WILL MELT RIGHT OFF OF YOU!!!!!

 

I loved that the story was told in first person and really liked that you got more than one person telling the story. I love when you are able to be inside their heads and really get to understand what they are feeling.

 

I felt the author did a great job on covering a very sensitive but very real issue. I don’t want to discuss it in detail as I don’t’ want to give away any of the plot. I loved that this was not your typical romance story and the plot was certainly unique.

 

This book had me hooked from page one and I could not put it down until I was finished with it. I am just happy the rest of the series is out and I don’t have to wait to see what happens next because this book will leave you with lots of questions that you will want answered.

 

Although I found Lily a little bit of a whiner at times I was able to connect with her. I loved both Jason and Dane. I still am not sure which one I liked the best. I know there were a few parts of this story that had my panties melting off of me. To be honest usually I end of skimming over the sex parts of books but that didn’t happen in this book.  I devoured every page.

 

If you are looking for a hot and steamy read that also has a unique plot with some suspense than you definitely need to click this one. You are not going to regret it!!!

Macon by Marie James Release Day Blitz, Review & Giveaway

 

 

Cover Design: TE Black Designs

Release Date: September 14, 2017

 

 

Synopsis

 

Tossing a middle finger to Macon, Georgia as I made my way to Nashville was always the dream. Sing country music, go on tour, top the charts—with my popularity growing every day, I was on my way.

But then a gust of wind blew up your skirt, and those white cotton panties had me hooked. I didn’t know your name, and you turned down every attempt I tried to throw your way. But I knew you were different, even though you told me I was the same.

“Friends” is what you offered, and I played by your rules, but, Adelaide Hatfield, you have to know, from that day, it was only you.

I just hope I can make you see how much you mean to me before we both drown in the sorrow of what heartbreak can truly be.

I am a huge fan of Marie James, I fell in love with her writing style while I was reading Kincaid  in her Cereberus MC Series.  I read the blurb to Macon and of course saw the authors name and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book.  Once I started I couldn’t put this book down.

 

Marie James has a way of ripping my heart out, stomping on it and with a slow and agonizing way she puts it back together.  Addie and Axton story was so much better then I expected.  The push and pull and slew of emotions I experienced with these characters made me love the story even more.  These characters will make you smile, laugh, cry, scream and jump for joy.

 

Axton was your typical rock star.  It was all about the music, women and nothing else.  He didn’t apologize for his life style or his choices until he meets Addie.  Addie was a strong, sweet and a focused character.  She knew what she wanted in life and wouldn’t settle for anything less.

 

There is an undeniable chemistry and connection between Axton and Addie but Addie wasn’t easily swayed.  Addie knew the lifestyle Axton led and didn’t want to be the one left behind.  Axton was incredible he fought hard for Addie to give him a chance.  These characters make several mistakes and lose each other along the way and the heartbreak is shattering but their love for one another is stronger than all obstacles.  I really loved Macon and didn’t want to get to the end.  I adored these characters.  This is an amazing addition to Ms. James collection.

Can love survive the bright lights of fame?

A popular DJ at the hottest station in Nashville, Charley Layton is doing what she’s always wanted to do: living in the heart of country music. Charley puts her career first and relationships second, but when a charismatic stranger in a black cowboy hat invites her back to his place, she decides to give herself one night of no-strings fun.

But Dylan Monroe isn’t a no-strings kind of guy. Charley is beautiful, brainy, and brassy as hell—the kind of girl he’s always wanted. When his record label books him an interview on Charley’s show, he’s determined to find out why he woke up alone, and when he can see her again.

With Dylan now the most eligible bachelor in country music, Charley doubts their fling stands a chance, but she’s willing to try. Dylan dreams of fame, but he also craves a life offstage with Charley. Can he convince her that both of their dreams are worth chasing, and that love is still possible, even in the spotlight?

I am a huge country music fan so I was so excited from the blurb to read this story!   Bonus for me it was better than I expected.   This is a fast paced, fun, make your face hurt smile book.   This is a book that gives every romance reader exactly what we want, that take me away and make me forget life for a couple hours.

 

Dylan is an upcoming Nashville star that is getting his second chance at his dream and Charley is an upcoming radio DJ trying to make it in Nashville.  I loved the mix for these two and how they are brought together.  I loved the build up of the relationship but I am not going to lie it’s an easy story plot to read into and know where everything is headed.  This isn’t a butterflies in your stomach or angst story line, it’s more hearts and flowers!  For me as a reader I did get mad at Charley during one part but my anger passed just as quickly as it came.  I am not going to lie though, I completely am in love with Dylan as a character. The way Terri wrote him is exactly what I dream ever country star is.  Just go look at his smirk on the cover and tell me he is not melting things.  FYI He is totally melting things!   Oh and don’t worry there is also that character that you want to throat punch repeatedly in here so I shouldn’t really say it’s all hearts and flowers!!  Actually, there are a ton of secondary characters that I want more from, especially, a certain character named Casey and the lucky damn hat!!  I just need that whole story ** HINT,  HINT **    However, I am totally ready for Chance to fall in my kindle, I mean a girl can never have too many country boys!!

William Tate Morrison – The man who came into my life and turned my entire world—and me—on its ass.

Logan Mitchell has always been a man with a plan.

One for work. One for his relationship. And one for his life. Which is exactly the way he liked it—until recently.

Now with words like marriage and weddings floating around his head, Logan’s plans have suddenly changed course, and where they want him to go has him feeling somewhat distracted.

Tate Morrison knows Logan better than anybody else—or so he thinks. So when his lawyer is finding it hard to sleep at night, he chalks it up to the craziness that has recently descended on their lives.

Never in a million years would he guess what’s really on Logan’s mind.

Tate is the fifth book in the Temptation Series, and the next chapter in the lives of the two men we have all come to know and love.
