ARC Review - Christmas: Dragon Style by Serena Akeroyd!


BLURB:

With Christmas around the corner, Sanguenna and leader of her Coven, Mia LeRoche, has nothing more on her mind than a lucrative holiday season at her night club. Then, a dragon pops up in her life, informs her he’s her mate, doesn’t understand the Internet, is seriously confused by Netflix, and continuously calls her his ‘lemon’. 
Once friends with the Vikings, Remy Dreconis has seen and done a lot. What he hasn’t done, however, is his mate. The horizontal tango is in his future if she can get past the fact he was around for the Black Death and really doesn’t understand how cell phones work. 
For five centuries, the Mother has forsaken dragonkind, denying them their lemans because of a heinous crime committed by one of her children. Remy and Mia must traverse a new phase in dragon society, creating history as they go. 
But Mia’s stuck on the fact she has to live in a realm with no cell service, and Remy’s obsession with books tops her love of Jimmy Choos. This odd couple shouldn’t have what it takes to form a lasting mate bond, but the Mother knows something they don’t… 

Standalone full-length novel with a smexy hero and a heroine who'll make you LOL. 
Book two in the series is coming February 14th 2018!

MY REVIEW:

WOOHOOOO!!! We got here, a MARVELOUS, FUN, SASSY, AND OH SO SEXY PARANORMAL ROMANCE THAT WAS UTTERLY TEMPTING FOR THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON!! Nothing gets me excited like a good shifter story, and this one, had one sinful, alpha Dragon and a fiery Sanguenna. These two had terrific, mind blowing chemistry that was felt like it could kill my kindle with some sizzling heat. The story is perfectly paced, charming and fun. The world this story is set in is incredible! Its fresh, and different and full of unique characters. 

I love a great paranormal romance that is set around Christmas. And this one spiced things up PERFECTLY! I laughed, I sighed, I enjoyed every second of this book and I am already anticipating the second book! I LOVE Dragons! 

Christmas: Dragon Style gets a DELICIOUSLY ENTERTAINING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its a great read and will be sure to get your Holiday spirits rising and will make you look at dragons in a new, more creative light.

Pretty Dirty Release Boost Post!




Title: Pretty Dirty
Series: Dirty Bad Things #2
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 11, 2017



Blurb

My pretty little bad girl. My dirty little secret.

Pretty. Dirty.

And all mine.

Heard the one about the filthy rich mob lawyer and the cam girl with the broken past?

Yeah, me neither. But you’re about to.

I wasn’t looking for temptation, but I sure as sh*t found it. Young, fiery, dirty. The ink and the piercings. Those scars, just like mine. One look at Zoe, and I’m hooked. Addicted. Obsessed.

So I bought her. Fifty grand for three weeks, and she’s all mine. She needs saving, but I’m no prince charming. And helping her means crossing my employers – the dangerous Moretti crime family that runs Las Vegas.

But I can’t resist that sweet little body that’s begging to be claimed, or the soft, sultry way she says “harder” and “deeper”. I can’t tell her no when all I want to tell her is to get on her f*cking knees and say yes sir.

So I’ll keep her. I’ll protect her. She thinks she’s broken. I know she’s perfect. And I’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe.

I found her by accident. I’m keeping her by choice.

*Please note that while a connected storyline, each of the Dirty Bad Things books are completely standalone stories centered around one couple, with no cliffhangers or spoilers.

Dirty, filthy, and oh-so-sweet, with an utterly obsessed alpha hero, explosive insta-love, and enough kindle-melting steam to make you sweat. Get ready to get wrong in the right kind of way. HEA with NO CHEATING!

ARC Review - Jayce Ventura Ghost Detective by Serena Akeroyd!


BLURB:

It says a lot about a person when their best friend is a ghost. 
Jayce Ventura, ghost detective, has nothing but the deceased as friends. With no love life, no social life, and only Ben and Jerry who'll put up with her, something's gotta give. But what? 
When Drake Edwin comes to her for help in finding closure with his nephew's death, Jayce is dragged out of her apathy and into the weird and wonderful world of emotion. 
Only trouble is, Drake's nephew didn't OD, he was murdered, and Jayce is the only one who can make good this situation. 
Mixing work and pleasure is never the best idea, but when you throw murder into the scenario, it gets a thousand times worse. 
Only a helping hand from the other side will get this duo together, but even ghosts can be bitter. Will Drake and Jayce ever make it? Or were they broken before they managed to meet...? 

Jayce Ventura - Ghost Detective is a Stand-Alone, No Cliff-Hanger novella, however, it does lead on to another book in the series, with characters you will meet in the upcoming novels. 

This book is a sweet, paranormal romance with a kickass heroine who isn't afraid to swear, eat too much ice cream, or come face to face with things that go bump in the night. What does freak her out is LOVE. 

Watch out for more of the raunchy romance you've come to expect from Serena Akeroyd's books in the upcoming series. 

This book was originally published in 'THEIR DARK PASSIONS - SINFUL SUPERNATURALS.'

MY REVIEW:


A fun, light, adorable, entertaining read with lovable characters and witty banter along with some fabulous themes. This story itself is unique and charming. Its different...in a good way. It made me smile and was just a lot of fun to read.

Jayce is a definite sassy heroine. She is strong, feisty, knows how to eat and can kick major butt! The romance is a lot lighter but it...fits the story. Drake is seeking closure from his nephew's death and as he and Jayce work together to get it, romance springs forth and a lot of action and entertaining times ensue right along with the adorable romance! I very much liked this!

Jayce Ventura Ghost Detective gets a UNIQUE AND QUIRKY FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its not your average paranormal romance that's for sure and that is what makes it work!

ARC Review - Brother's Best Friend's Package by Cassandra Bloom!


BLURB:

Ash Hobbs is king of Wall Street. He’s big and powerful, successful, and incredibly sexy. 

He’s the most notorious bad boy on Broadway. He changes women faster than he changes his underwear, and he’s got his sights set on me. 

He’s exactly the kind of guy I could get involved with—if I was in the market to get involved with anybody—which I’m not. 

He’s also my brother’s best friend and business partner. What could possibly go wrong? 

Well, he doesn’t know it, but he’s about to meet his match.

He’s a shark and I’m a shark, so I guess we’re two of a kind. I change guys faster than I change my underwear.

I chew up guys and spit them out. I’ve got a different man in my bed every night, and tonight it’s Ash’s turn. 

One night of wild sex later—could this be a New York dream come true, or the greatest disaster ever? 

MY REVIEW:

SIZZLING HEAT, CRACKLING PASSION, INCREDIBLE ROMANCE, BROTHER'S BEST FRIEND'S PACKAGE IS THE PERFECT THING TO HEAT YOU UP, INSIDE AND OUT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON! This is my first book by Cassandra Bloom and I don't regret reading this delicious book. The cover alone, says this will be a romance that will have you hot and bothered, but the moment I started this, I got so much more. Its sassy, sexy, filled with delectable tension between a feisty woman and her brother's best friend...what is not to love about that?

Brother's Best Friend's Package had some terrific characters. Both are smart, stubborn, pretty and have some amazing chemistry. The sex is phenomenal and the storyline really packs a wicked punch that just had me all...melty and hot as hell! An all around great read and I can't wait to read more stories from Miss Bloom!

Brother's Best Friend's Package gets a WONDERFULLY DECADENT FIVE SHOOTING STARS! If you want something hot and spicy this Christmas season, this is a MUST read! 

Capitol Promises Release with ARC Review!



Forever Valentine PR and More is proud to present the Release Blitz for Capital Promises by Rebecca Gallo.

Title: Capital Promises
Author: Rebecca Gallo
Available NOW!
Cover Design: RBA Designs



I’ve made far too many promises that are impossible to keep.

I assured the country a leader they could depend on and trust.

I vowed everything and then some to the woman I love.

Someone is bound to be disappointed.

Poised to become the next leader of the United States of America, I’m bound by oath of office to make good on every campaign pledge. Which means giving Georgie back something she sacrificed – the platform to make a difference.

But my stubborn pride may cost me everything – both the dream and the girl.

In the end, I may just have to break a few promises to keep what matters most.

MY REVIEW:

Another OUTSTANDING book by Rebecca Gallo! Capitol Promises is the second book after Presidential Bargain and is even more intense, angsty, full of incredible passion and irresistible romance. This story all around captured my attention and had me on edge. 

Georgie is such a fantastic heroine. I hurt for her with everything she goes through but I am also amazed by the strength she possesses and Jameson is still as swoon worthy and caring and determined to do what is right for him as well as Georgie. This was such an excellent paced read that was very entertaining and gave me much insight to politics and well, everything to do with presidency..its realistic, or at least seems it, and I like that.

Capitol Promises gets a THRILLING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! If you read Presidential Bargain you do NOT want to miss Capitol Promises, I can promise you THAT!

Rebecca Gallo was first indoctrinated into the romance genre by her babysitter who watched hours upon hours of daytime soap operas. She harbored many inappropriate crushes on fictional characters such as John Black from “Days of Our Lives,” Orry Main from the mini-series “North & South,” and Edward Fairfax Rochester from Jane Eyre. She is still in love with Davy Jones from The Monkees.

Rebecca currently lives in the Southwest with her husband, tiny four-year-old terror, and a tuxedo cat with a limp. When she isn’t swooning over book boyfriends or dreaming up romances, she can be found educating the youth of America. Or eating tacos.
