The Brightest Sunset (Darkest Sunrise Duet #2) by Aly Martinez

Image
Now available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Bullshit.
Words destroyed me.
“I’m sorry. She didn’t make it.”
“Daddy, he can’t breathe!”
“There’s nothing more we can do for your son.”
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Lies.
Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn’t acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.
Two words—that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.
“He’s gone.”
In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise.
“Hi. I’m Charlotte Mills.”

Review:

So I did something really stupid with this book. See last weekend my husband went out drinking with his friends leaving me home alone. So what did I do? Read of course. A different book. And it got late and I was tired, but I only had about a ha…

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) by Christina Lauren

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling.

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He's exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family's massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who'd been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative—completely infuriating—creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he's never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe's so tempting he's willing to bend the rules—or outright smash them—if it means he can have her. All over the office.

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they're willing to lose in order to win each other.

Mister Romance (Masters of Love #1) by Leisa Rayven

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Max Riley is the man of your dreams. Or at least he will be, for a price.

As his alter-ego Mister Romance, Max is a drop-dead gorgeous escort who makes romantic fantasies come to life. No sex, just swoon-worthy dates to die for, and the cream of New York's socialites can't get enough. Whether they want a dominating billionaire, bad boy with a heart of gold, hot geek, sexy biker, or best friend who loves them from afar, Max can make it all happen, but he's careful to keep his real identity a secret.

Enter investigative journalist Eden Tate. Having caught wind of the urban legend of Mister Romance from a lovestruck client, Eden is determined to publish a scathing expose on Max and his ability to swindle lonely society women out of their fortunes.

Desperate to protect his anonymity and his clients, Max challenges Eden to give him three dates. If she doesn't fall in love with him, she can run her story with his blessi…

The Witness by Nora Roberts

Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Daughter of a controlling mother, Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking at a nightclub and allowing a strange man's seductive Russian accent lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever.

Twelve years later, the woman known as Abigail Lowery lives on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she designs sophisticated security systems -- and supplements her own security with a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. But Abigail's reserve only intrigues police chief Brooks Gleason. Her logical mind, her secretive nature, and her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something -- and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

With a quirky, unforgettable heroine and a pulse-pounding plotline, Nora Rob…

Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Ruby Santos knew exactly what she was getting herself into when she signed up to write a soldier overseas.
The guidelines were simple: one letter or email a week for the length of his or her deployment. Care packages were optional.
Been there, done that. She thought she knew what to expect.
What she didn’t count on was falling in love with the guy.

Review:

Slow burn. Mariana Zapata is the queen of slow burn and I love it. Because it is all about the anticipation, my favorite thing. I love the anticipation. The lead up to whatever. My favorite season is fall even though my favorite weather is cold and snowy. Fall because once that air starts getting crisp and the leaves start changing colors I know it is not long until winter. Anticipation. I love it. The what will happen, what will it be? And that is why I loved this book.

Man Dear Aaron was...about halfway through I was a mess. I couldn't put it down. I was waiting and waiting t…

Complicating (Preston's Mill #3) by Noelle Adams and Samantha Chase

Image
Now available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Forget all those other accidental pregnancy romances you might have read.

Daisy and Carter don't have a one-night stand...because it's thirty minutes in a back room at a wedding reception. And Carter isn't a bad boy baby-daddy...except for the motorcycle, tattoos, and attitude. Daisy doesn't have the typical issues with her pregnancy...if you don't count the morning sickness, food cravings, and occasional horniness. And Carter doesn't hang around all the time, wanting both her and the baby...until he falls in love.

But they definitely don't become a happy family...right away.

Daisy has always been a good girl. She's never done anything wild or spontaneous until she has a little too much to drink at a wedding and has a fling with a sexy stranger. She thought they were careful, but accidents happen. And now she's going to have the baby of a man she barely knows.

Carter is her opposite in ever…

Blog Tour: The Darkest Sunrise (Darkest Sunrise #1) by Aly Martinez

Now available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. 
Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience.  “You’re pregnant.”  “It’s a boy.”  “Your son needs a heart transplant.”  Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.  Lies.  Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun.  Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky.  “He’s gone.”  For ten years, the darkness consumed me.  In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise.  “Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”

Review:

The Darkest Sunrise really puts you through the wringer! I loved it so so much! I always love Martinez's books, she always writes stories that I cannot put down, and this was no exception. I had been seein…

Review:
Night School started off fun and I was interested in seeing where it was going and what was really going on, but then it dragged on and on and on. *spoilers ahead*

I started reading it interested in Allie. She keeps getting in trouble with the law and so her parents send her to a boarding s…

The Heat Is On (Boston 5 #1) by Poppy J. Anderson

Image
Available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

When Hayden's fiancĂ© breaks off their engagement, Hayden’s whole world falls apart. After all, she has loved Heath Fitzpatrick since they were children. Though she can hardly believe he really wants the breakup, she picks up the pieces of her life and tries to accept the new situation.

But her efforts are thwarted time and again by the rest of the Fitzpatrick clan, who have always been part of her life—and who are notorious for being outspoken, persistent, and downright meddlesome. None of Heath's siblings are above adding their own two cents. Or twenty.

Even Heath himself, a daring firefighter, seems to be having trouble adjusting to his new single life. So how in the world is Hayden supposed to move on, forget the plans they made for the future, and get Heath off her mind? And even more difficult—she'll need to banish him from her heart, forever.

Taking Charge (Lone Star Burn #4) by Ruth Cardello

Image
Available on  Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Lucy Albright never wanted her family’s Texas ranch, but now it’s in foreclosure. She’s already lost so much she can’t bear the thought of losing one more thing. Lucy learned the hard way not to accept help from a man when there are strings attached, so she’ll do whatever it takes to save the ranch on her own terms—even if that means launching an online business marketing high-¬tech sex toys.

Ranch manager David Harmon has a reputation for being a cowboy with a heart of gold. Even if she refuses his help, down-and-out Lucy is the kind of woman he’ll do anything to protect. And while David may not know much about Lucy’s naughty side business, that won’t stop a cowboy from doing something he’s set his mind to.

With the ranch threatened by a scheming neighbor, Lucy can’t help but keep David around. Their attraction may be undeniable, but will the spark between them burn her entire future to the ground?
