{Release Blitz: Review} Be With Me by Samantha Young

A best friends to lovers story set against the atmospheric backdrop of the Scottish Highlands.

Be With Me by Samantha Young is now live!

Be With Me by Samantha Young
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
THEME: Friends to Lovers

BLURB:

It was the friends-with-benefits proposition he never saw coming...

While Arran Adair might have followed the call of wanderlust in his younger years, it isn't the reason he stayed away from Ardnoch. Home now, desperate to put the sins of his past behind him, and rebuild his life in the Scottish Highlands, Arran could never have predicted Eredine Willows. The Ardnoch Estate Pilates instructor is a complicated mystery and one Arran can't help but want to solve.

Eredine has spent the last eight years hiding in Scotland and building walls between her and the people she cares about. Arran is the first Adair who doesn't treat her as if she's fragile and demands a genuine friendship. Yet, the attraction sizzling between them is undeniable. So when she realizes she trusts him, Eredine surprises them both by offering Arran one night of no-strings passion.

Arran knows one night will inevitably lead to a desire for more and he's willing to stay by Eredine's side for as long as it takes to convince her there's something real between them. However, just when Arran thinks they might build a future together, Eredine's past returns to stalk her. And Arran won't just have to battle her demons to keep them together. He'll need to battle his own.

REVIEW:

The Adair Family series has become one of my favorites, this family has grown so much and each time the couple is tested, they each have fears of opening up and all have a past that causes them to faulter with their trust. Be With Me I feel is the one that hit more emotional feels. Mostly because of Eredine, who is the quiet, sweet and shy yoga instructor and dear friend to many in the Adair family. Her past broke my heart and what she had to overcome just tugged at all the feels, and the Arran, his past broke my heart as well and I couldn't wait for these two to find happiness.

Be with Me follows Eredine who has become not only close with the whole Adair family but more so with the youngest brother Arran. The two have found a comfortable friendship, but when neither can deny their spark, the trust is tested, and even more so when their pasts have brought danger to Scottish Highlands once again.

I don't want to give too much away, but Young has a way with her character building and world building that always hooks me. Eredine and Arran have this amazing chemistry, its sexy and they both have this fire to them. All the past couples are back of course and moving forward with their romances as well as starting families. They have become a complex family of support and laughter, as well as suspense, they mystery and danger that is brought into each story because the family is in the spotlight always brings in a twist.

I can't wait for the last Adairs story with Brodan, his love interests was finally introduced and I know their is a great story there!

{Release Blitz: Review} Lighthouse Way by Kristen Proby

Lighthouse Way by Kristen Proby is now live!

Lighthouse Way (Huckleberry Bay, #1)Lighthouse Way by Kristen Proby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Anything that Kristen Proby writes I'm three and one clicking immediately. I was super excited for a new small town series and even more excited when there were small paranormal elements mixed in.

Lighthouse Way follow Luna who life in the small-town of Huckleberry Bay, she owns the lighthouse that has been passed down through generations. Her goal of opening up her Bed and breakfast is coming together and thanks to her ancestor who still resided at her home and keeps an eye on the place, she feels everything is going right. The boy from her childhood Wolfe returns to town after a horrible racing accident that ended his career due to a brain injury. Wolfe and Lunda immediately connect again and the sparks fly. But Luna has her plans laid out and Wolfe is something she wasn't prepared for.

This is a quick read, I loved the setting of Huckleberry Bay and all the secondary characters. Especially Luna's two close friends June and Sarah whom has just returned to town. The side story of Rose the mysterious presence that lives at the lighthouse was a fun twist, the Diary that the girls dig into at a young age that adds to some flashbacks to the past was wonderful. I did wish I would of gotten more of her Luna's past with Wolfe and more about their lives growing up in town. Wolfe and Luna have a wonderful connection, its steamy, sweet and they just click, they both come from different worlds but this small town is what brings them together again and its super sweet.

If your looking for a sweet, steamy romance that has wonderful characters and makes you want to immerse yourself into a small town, look no further. I can't wait for the next book that will follow Sarah and Tanner, who have a romantic history, but Sarah has just come out of a terrible marriage and so much is a mystery about her years away from Huckleberry.

{Release Blitz: Review} Always You by Samantha Young

Always You by Samantha Young is now live!

Always You by Samantha Young
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
THEME: Age-Gap
Always You (Adair Family, #3)
Always You (Adair Family, #3)
by Samantha Young

BLURB:

Arrochar Adair has loved her brother's ex-bodyguard and best friend, Mac Galbraith, for years. Once upon a time, she was too young for him, but now that she's a mature woman in her thirties, Arro can see no issue with their difference in age. Yet something deeper, a problem much more difficult to surmount, is keeping them apart.

Mac Galbraith remembers clearly the night Arro became everything to him, no longer just his best friend and boss's younger sister. However, having made many mistakes over the years, there is one mistake Mac is determined not to make: to believe that he is worthy of Arrochar Adair. Allowing them to grow closer during his daughter, Robyn's, return has proven his undoing. And when Arro forces the subject of their relationship, his response pushes her away. He just never meant for it to destroy them completely.

Devastated by Mac's final rejection, Arro is determined to move on without him in her life, though he seems intent on staying put. And when the Adair family face a new threat, one that may have ties to Mac's past, Arro can't seem to be rid of the man. In fact, Mac will do anything to protect her.

But with so much hurt between them, will Arro let Mac close enough to guard her from their enemy... before it's too late?

REVIEW:

I've been waiting for the story on Mac and Arrochar, in the prior two books, Young has hinted at their connect or relationship and I was not disappointed. Each character in the Adair family has fallen for someone connected to their partner, first the daughter of Mac, then Mac's daughters half sister and now Mac. Its one interesting family dynamics but the love is so real and so deep.

Always You follows Arrochar, the only girl in the Adair family and beloved sister to all her brothers. She is also a forest engineer and one of the best on the job. When her bosses assistant starts giving her bad vibes it adds to the stress of her life, but even more so when she starts receiving threats similar to her brothers from on ongoing case. Now her family is determined to keep her safe and figure out who is behind the threats and Mac the man who stole her heart and broke it is constantly there protecting her. Even though he wants to keep her at arms length because she is his bosses sister, his heart and hers are not waiting them to be separated.

The story shows glimpses of the past and way Mac and Arrochar relationship is so strained. They both have this undeniable connection but Mac has issues with his past that keeps him from Arrochar and it caused something to break in Arrochar. Adding to the mystery of who is behind the threats, it puts these two into danger. The past couples are of course there as support, but we get to see how things are progressing in their relationships as well.

In the end I love this series, there is always suspense and always steamy moments, but the characters are wonderfully done and Young always knows how to draw her readers in. I can't wait to see which Adair is next .

{Release Blitz: Review} Beast Charming by Grace Goodwin


Beast Charming by Grace Goodwin is now live!


Warlord Tane of Atlan is a warrior, not a prince. 
So why is he wearing these ridiculous white pants and gold-trimmed jacket? 

And gods help him, why are there hundreds of females in glittering gowns, circling like vultures, expecting him to dance? 
The human producers of the Bachelor Beast television show thought this would be a good idea; dress up an unmated Warlord like a fairytale prince, invite hundreds of eligible human women to a ‘Cinderella Ball’, turn on their cameras, and record everything. 
And then he sees her. His mate. The only female who can tame his beast. 
But… 
This princess wasn’t supposed to be at the ball. A borrowed ballgown. A stolen invitation. A friend in trouble. Everything is going according to plan…until she can no longer resist temptation. 
Surely one dance won’t hurt? Even a dance with a beast. 
Don’t miss this wild and twisted Cinderella story.

REVIEW:

The fifth installment to the Interstellar Brides Program spinoff, The Beast follows Elena, who rushes onto the set of The Bachelor Ball, where they are currently looking for the mate match of Warlord Tane. Elena is looking for Abby, the young daughter to her powerful boss and horrible man, who also hates the coalition and aliens. What Elena wasn't expecting was to come face to face with Tane and Tanes beast be instantly connect to her. But that's only the beginning of their problems.

I've read all the prior spinoffs and the original series and I still can't get enough of these alpha male aliens claiming their mates, while also the side story of the pending fight against the Hive lingers in the background. I loved the world building, the differences between all the alien species and most of all the utter devotion to these unexpecting women whom they fall for.

I don't wat to give too much away but past characters will pop up and mentions from other series as well. But this story focuses on Elena and her Beast and how they need to overcome the complexity of falling for an alien on earth.

Excerpt
Copyright 2022 Taryn Rivers

I walk him to his truck, where things get awkward—at least for me. After completely screwing up our date, now I’m shoving him off. I stand here, shuffling my feet, staring at the ground. “Sorry I fu—messed up our date.”
His finger catches me under my chin, and I look up straight into a pair of amused blue eyes. “You can make it up to me tomorrow night. No dogs this time though. Your sister can watch them.”
I hold my hand up. “Erick, I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
He shakes his head. “You have no intention of even trying to see if we’re good together, do you?” He doesn’t sound mad at all. If it’s possible, he looks even more amused.
I narrow my eyes at him. He’s not taking me seriously at all. “I don’t have time for a relationship right now. I have a business to build up, a sister whose life is imploding, and a nephew to spoil. There’s no room in there for an overbearing alpha male. So no matter how hard you try, you won’t make me budge.”
A wide grin forms across his face. “Challenge accepted.”
Oh, crap. Before I can get another word out, he pulls me into him tight. His hands cup my head, fingers tangle in my hair, and his mouth comes down on mine.
I gasp in surprise, and he immediately takes advantage. He slides his tongue in and it brushes against mine, lightly at first. I freeze, but then my hand automatically curls into his shirt. That’s when he goes in for the kill. It’s not a rough, overwhelming kiss. Instead, he sips at my mouth like he’s savoring it. It’s soft and seductive.
Very seductive.
My eyes close, my head tilts for a better angle and I melt into him as desire pools in my belly. This is good. No, not just good, it’s better than I imagined it would be, and I knew it would be fucking amazing.
With one last stroke of his tongue, he breaks it off. Leaning back, he grins.
“Six o’clock, Rosalie.”
He turns and hops into his truck. With a wink, he starts it and I step back.
He reverses and then is gone, leaving me standing here speechless.
As I watch his taillights disappear around the bend, my hand reaches up and touches my lips, still warm and tingly from that kiss.
I just had to challenge the Viking warrior. I’m going to be screwed, both figuratively and literally. And after that kiss, I’m not sure I care.

The Secret by Kristen Proby is now live!

From NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a forbidden romance. The Secret is the first in the Single in Seattle series!

Vaughn is everything I'm supposed to stay away from. Sexy. Cocky. And famous.
Ultra-famous.
I grew up in a family full of wealthy celebrities. My father, Luke Williams, is the celebrity of them all. A superstar actor and producer, my father knows the downside of living in the spotlight. And because of that, he sheltered my siblings and me from everything Hollywood entailed. We didn't attend premieres. We weren't photographed. There were no friendships with other celebrities' children.
The limelight couldn't touch us.
But now, at twenty-five, I'm ready to start my life, working for my father's production company in downtown Seattle--until Vaughn Barrymore walks through the door.
He can't keep his hands off me. He's completely forbidden, but I can't help falling for the sweet, complicated man.
When--and it's when not if--my family finds out that I've been keeping this secret, will I have to choose between the man I love and those who mean the most to me? Or, by some miracle, can I have both?

{Release Blitz} The Bully by Willa Nash

The Bully by Willa Nash is now live!


The Bully (Calamity Montana, #4)The Bully by Willa Nash
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

BLURB:

Nellie Rivera is trading traffic for tranquility. When the quiet streets of small-town Montana beckon, she leaves Denver behind and moves to Calamity. It would be the perfect adventure if not for Cal Stark.

When her archnemesis dares to show his face one Saturday morning, declaring he is moving there too, she vows to make his life a misery. The town isn't big enough for the both of them and besides . . .

She was here first.

Cal has been a thorn in her side since high school. He might have bullied her back then, but she's not a modest teenager anymore and has learned a few plays of her own. If all goes to plan, she'll run the former pro quarterback out of town within a month.

There's only one problem. Cal has the same plan. He wants Calamity bad enough to pull out all the stops. And after one kiss, she realizes that he doesn't play fair.


REVIEW:

I love the Calamity Montana series and after book three I was super excited to dig into Cal and Nellies story after their angsty but massive spark connection they showed. This book broke my heart a little, Cal was a big teddy bear but showed everyone he wasnt close with a fake version of himself. So his background and story won me over.

The Bully follows Cal a newly retired NFL play who decides to move to Calamity to be close with his best friend Pierce and start his retirement in peace. He's not on who like being the center of attention and is known for having a harsh persona, but everyone who is close to him knows he has a big heart. Since they were young Nellie and Cal have clashed for mostly misunderstanding and immature kid things. So when Cal moves to town Nellie isnt happy and will do anything to get him to leave. When Cal gets ahold of Nellie's old diary he sees the true meaning on why they are so disconnected. Can these two ever mend the hurt that they have inflicted upon her, or will one need to move out of town.

Cal was my favorite in the story, he was misunderstood by everyone that he wasnt close with. He had the biggest heart and kept this fake person to keep people away. He is a simple person, doesnt need to flashiness that the world expects of him because he's wealthy and comes from a wealthy family. He is not close with his father whom he despises with a passion. As for his relationship with Nellie its complicated to the max, they have known each other since they were kids and a chain reaction causes them to have an angsty almost hateful relationship. Nellie was the tough one for me, she puts Cal in a box and doesnt really know him but thinks she does. I was angry with her in some incidences because she is just plain cruel, even though I get why she is, I felt her actions were extreme.

In the end I loved how a diary was what helps Cal learn from his mistakes and tries to find a way with Nellie. This is a angsty but steamy story and I love how the town is incorporated in their journey. I can't wait to see who is next in this series.

Whiskey Home (Whiskey Falls, #1)Whiskey Home by Taryn Rivers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
THEME: Suspense/Mystery

BLURB:

Tony
I promised to protect my best friend’s little sister—I didn’t plan on falling in love.
But when a murderer strikes in my county and she may be the next target, I can’t hold back anymore.
She doesn’t know it yet, but when this is over she’s here to stay.
If I can keep her alive.

Bree
A tragedy called me back to Whiskey Falls, but as soon as I take care of business, I’m out of here.
It doesn’t matter that I’ve been in love with Tony Kane since I was a child.
Or that I go weak at the knees every time I see him.
My family broke my heart, but he has the power to shatter it.
No way am I sticking around for that.

REVIEW:

Whiskey Home is a wonderfully created suspense romance. well thought out characters and a great start to the Whiskey Falls series.

Whiskey Home follows Bree who goes home to Whiskey Falls after the tragic loss of her biological father. When she gets home its obviously the last place she wants to be but heartbroken with the loss of her father, especially with the unresolved issues they had. Her family dynamic is heartbreaking, her family had a fallout with her and they never seem to let her forget it. Thankfully she has the love of her brother, his friends and her pseudo father Griff. But when she gets home she discovers that her step father death is looking more like murder and they are not stopping with him, she and her family have become target and now Griff and her brothers best friend Tony are on a mission to find out who is behind it all.

Bree is a complicated character, she is hurt and still doesn't feel that connection to her family because of past issues with her father, Her relationship with her fathers friend Griff who took her in is as solid as every, her brother Erick has her back and the man who makes her heart skip a beat Tony is trying to make sure Bree is not only safe but stays home where they all feel she belongs. Tony and Bree's chemistry is off the charts, they have history and Tony like everyone wants her back in Whiskey Falls.

They mystery is fantastically written, I didn't have a clue for the longest time who was behind it and that goes the show the author did a wonderful job with the big beds. I was on the edge of my seat many times and I loved all the secondary characters. I'm pretty excited to see what's in store for the next installment.

Excerpt
Copyright 2021 Taryn Rivers

The patio door opens behind me, alerting me to Bree’s presence.
“Bree’s here. I gotta go,” I tell him.
“Watch your back,” he warns, not hiding the worry in his voice.
“You, too.” I hang up and turn around to find Bree rubbing the back of her neck with a resigned look on her face.
“She’s on her way, isn’t she?” I ask.
She winces and nods.
“Please tell me Colt’s with her.” I like Colt, and it’s obvious he cares for both women. Plus, he can handle himself and is one hell of a shot.
“No. Colt’s not with her. But she’s not alone.”
“You need to call her back and tell her to turn around. We barely have enough manpower to cover you, much less Sadie and whichever one of your friends she’s dragging with her.”
“It’s, um, well, it’s Killian,” she stammers. “He didn’t want her driving by herself.”
It takes a few seconds before I trust myself to speak. “Are you telling me Killian Cross is on his way here right now?”
She bites her lip and nods reluctantly.
“Exactly how many times has Cross asked you out?” I ask.
She wrings her hands together. “Twice. And it’s been months. We’re just good friends, not that it’s any of your business.”
I see red. “Not my fucking business? Are you high? Everything about you is my business.”
She backs up but it’s too late. In two steps I’m on her. I pull her to me and slam my mouth down on hers.
Instead of fighting it, her arms wrap around me. I fist her hair, and she gasps, giving me what I need to slide my tongue home. I bring her even closer, and she melts into me.
I pour everything I have into the kiss. If she won’t believe it when I tell her she’s mine, I’ll fucking show her and leave no room for doubt.
I’ve been waiting for this moment for two years, and all my frustration comes through. She moans into my mouth which spurs me on. I thought our first kiss couldn’t be beat, but this one blows it out of the water.
This kiss is everything. Heaven and hell, want and need, every ounce of my being focused on the slide of her tongue. I slow it down until our lips separate. I run my nose along hers then drop my hand down to her lower back and bury my face in her hair.
“This is why you’re my business. This proves you want me as much as I want you. Face it. You’re mine, and I’m fucking yours. Always have been. Always will be.”
I lean in and kiss the side of her lips. “Give us a chance, beautiful. It’s going to work out. I promise.”
Her entire face softens, and I think I have her. But then she blinks, and I see naked fear flash in her eyes right before she shuts down.
Fucking hell.

About Taryn Rivers 

Taryn Rivers lives in central Arkansas with her extremely patient husband and her golden retriever, Patton.

She loves reading, coffee, wine, and her family, not necessarily in that order.
