Book Release Blast for All We Are by JH Croix (REVIEW)……..
Swoony second chance
Small town shenanigans
The off-limits bad boy. The rich good girl. High school sweethearts.
The last person I expect to see when my car breaks down is Joe Martinelli. I broke my own heart when I moved away after high school. Joe is my first and only love, and my father refused to let us see each other.
That was all before my father blew our family up and landed in jail for fraud. I meant to escape to Maine for the week before Christmas, except it turns out my brother is holed up at the house with my friend. I have a broken down car and nowhere to go.
Of course, it’s also snowing so heavily I can only see a few feet in front of me. When Joe offers to let me stay at his place, it seems like the smart plan. It has nothing to do with how hot he is, absolutely nothing to do with how much I missed him, and definitely nothing to do with my latest bad luck in romance.
One night turns into two, one kiss turns into three and even more.
Joe & Thea’s story is perfect for readers who love: swoony second chances, broken hearts mended, small town gossip, emotional romance with a dash of angst, plenty of swoon and all the feels, and a protective hero who’ll do anything to win back the only girl he ever loved.
Book Blurb Blitz for Vanessa Jared's Got a Man by LaQuette (GIVEAWAY)…..
He didn’t know what came over him, except the fact that his common sense exited and his ego stepped up front and center. He came from around the counter, meeting her on the other side, stand- ing as close to her as he could.
To her credit, she wasn’t the least bit put off by his proximity as she leaned into him.
“The thing that makes me good at my job is that I love putting puzzle pieces together to figure out what makes people tick. Once I put all the parts together, I can figure out what motivates folks to do some of the drastic things they do.”
He lifted his hand, slowly pushing the sleek strands of her hair behind her ear, letting his thumb settle at the edge of her jaw.
“Call me old-fashioned.” His voice was a low rumble he almost didn’t recognize. “But I like to do the chasing when I’m interested in a woman.”
She lifted a skeptical brow as they continued their stare-off. “So, you’re not into strong, independent women who know their own minds? You need a docile woman to make yourself feel like a big man?”
“I want nothing less than a strong, independent woman who knows her own mind.” He paused a moment to let his words settle in. “Only I want to put all the pieces together and figure out what she wants before I make a move. I want her to know her worth and make me chase her like the queen she knows she is. I want her to make me work for it. Where’s the fun in having you if I didn’t have to actually put in any work to get you?”
It didn’t escape him that his pronouns for this imaginary woman had switched from third person to second in the span of a few words. He wasn’t even sorry enough to explain he was speaking in generalities to try to cover it up. They both knew he wasn’t, so what was the point. Fire flashed in her eyes, and as sure as he knew his own name, he recognized it for what it was: desire.
He leaned in, noting how bad an idea this was as he did. Then again, watching her lean in as well, he didn’t give a good goddamn. Her plush mouth was slightly parted, and he could feel the drum of her pulse beat faster and harder at her neck. Bad idea or not, there was no way in hell he was giving up the chance to know how that mouth would feel against his.
“Stop me now if this isn’t what you want?” He was gone, intoxicated by his growing need for her. Still, even at the height of this building lust, he wasn’t so far gone that he would ever do this against her will.
“If it wasn’t what I wanted, I’d tell you.”
That sharp tongue was so sexy, and he’d bet all he had that that would be even more true once he tasted it.

Book Tour for Love Tools by Isobel Reed (GIVEAWAY)…
“No s***. He wasn’t exactly father of the year.”
Lily couldn’t help but think of the irony. Her father had become friends with some guy young enough to be his son, yet he still couldn’t quite be bothered to pick up the phone and call his own daughter.
His smile became crooked as his glare intensified. “You always swear like a trucker, darlin’? Here, I thought English women were all class and manners.”
Is he being serious?
Letting out a huff, she couldn’t believe the nerve of this guy, “I’m sorry, have I stepped into the past? Are you gonna ask me why a little woman like me isn’t married next?”
“Alright sweetheart, calm down.” He sniggered, clearly amused by the steam coming out of her ears.
Stepping closer to him, she tilted her head up to meet his gaze. “I’m not or will I ever be your sweetheart. Now if you don’t mind, you need to get the hell out of my store before I call the police."
