    All I Need by Callie Harper πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯ Blog Tour πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯

    ALL I NEED by Callie Harper is available now! This hot contemporary romance is part of the All In series and can be read a standalone. Be sure to grab your copy today!



    “It’s just a job, how hard can it be?”

    I was hired by his father to become his live-in caregiver.

    It sounded like an easy job. But the day I arrived at his broken-down Scottish castle I started to realize it might not be as easy as I thought.

    I was not told that I’d be looking after a dark, brooding, rich man mired in a world of pain.

    I was not told that this man would push all my buttons and test even my strongest limits.

    I was not told that he was devastatingly gorgeous with a wickedly, sinful mouth.

    I was definitely not told that what I’d end up feeling and what he would propose would drive me wild. But I’m Annie and this is my new job. And damn it, I’m not going to let anything, even him, that gorgeous, sinful, delicious man, stand in my way.

    You believe me? Don’t you?

    CAN'T STOP LOVIN' YOU
    Maverick Junction #3
    Lynnette Austin
    Forever



    THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

    Maggie Sullivan can't wait to get out of Texas. Luckily, she just got the break she needed to make her big-city dreams a reality. But then Brawley Odell swaggers back into Maverick Junction, looking hotter than ever in his dusty cowboy boots and well-worn jeans. He's the guy she still dreams of at night. The guy who broke her heart when he left her behind.

    Fed up with city life, Brawley jumps at the chance to return home and take over the local vet's practice—and get back to the smart, sassy woman he's never been able forget. He couldn't be prouder of Maggie's new wedding-dress business . . . until he realizes it may mean losing her all over again. Determined to win her back, Brawley must find a way to convince Maggie that their one true home is with each other.

    The #MomFail Anthology is LIVE!

    Cover Design: MadHat Books
    Release Date: July 25, 2017

    Synopsis

    Everyone just stop for one bleeping minute so we can all get real with each other. Being a mom is some tough $#!†. You're constantly wearing questionable substances that make you ask, "is this chocolate or ... oh, crap ..." and your purse is merely a receptacle for three-week-old snacks and broken crayons.

    Let's be honest ... even when we're doing this “mom” thing right, we're somehow doing it completely wrong.

    Pardon us while we dust off our collective Mother of the Year trophy and proudly present you with an epic anthology of #MOMFAILS.

    *Stories inspired by real life (unless you’re a cop, then it’s all complete fiction). Names and situations have been changed to protect the guilty (and by guilty, we mean the moms). Because motherhood is a battlefield and we're all just trying to survive by any means necessary.

    Featuring this amazing lineup: Alissa York, A.M. Willard, BL Berry, Carina Adams, Claudia Burgoa, Crystal Burnette, Dylan Allen, Faith Andrews, Gia Riley, J.A. DeRouen, Kate Anslinger, Leddy Harper, LK Collins, LL Collins, Marie James, Piper Rayne, Riann C. Miller, Shari J. Ryan, Stephanie Rose, Stephie Walls, SM West, TL Swan, Teresa Michaels, and foreword written by: Nicole Kane Knepper.

    Excerpt:

    “I trust you as much as I can trust anyone,” she said softly.

    “That ain’t sayin’ much,” he retorted, his eyes burning.

    She leaned onto her side to face him. “Holden, please don’t be mad at me. I love you more than anyone. I want this . . . I want you . . . I just . . .”

    “Every one of the marks on my arm . . . is you,” he confessed.

    Racer McKay is a broody bastard.

    From the moment I met him, he’s been rude, irritable, and unbearable. 

    A contractor working to remodel my parents pool house for extra cash, he stomps around in those clunky construction boots with his tool belt wrapped around his narrow waist, and a chip on his shoulder.

    Racer McKay is also infuriatingly . . . sexy as hell. I want to take that pencil tucked behind his ear, and draw lazy lines slowly up and down his body all the while wanting to strangle him at the same time.

    We try to stay out of each other’s way . . . that is until I have no other option but to ask for his help.

    But what I don’t realize is he needs me just as much as I need him. I have money he’s desperate for, and he holds the key to making my dreams come true.

    Review: All I Need

    All I Need All I Need by Callie Harper
    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    Everyone who's anyone knows that Callie Harper is a fave of mine. A trusted go-to author if you will. She writes fun, steamy and romantic contemporary books that have me fanning myself and swooning in equal measure. All I Need was filled with a bit more angst than what I've come to expect from her and I believe she did an awesome job with it. Yes! She can do something serious and dramatic!!

    If you've read any of the books of the series (or not), you may (or not) know about the four young boys who took a boat out for a joyride when a storm hit and tragedy struck. One boy had a burning mast fall on top of him that not only burned him but also broke his back, leaving him paralyzed. Each boy was left traumatized by the accident, but Ian still bore the physical reminders. This is his story.

    Annie was hired to be Ian's caretaker. Having isolated himself for the last 15 years, he's brooding, dark, morose, depressed, drunk, belligerent, rude, and in a lot of pain. Understandable. Annie slowly but surely draws him out and these two unknowingly serve as the driving force and motivation for the other. Through their relationship they found companionship, strength, understanding, compassion, and ultimately love.

    The chemistry was electric. The plot was different but handled delicately, honestly and with respect. I felt Ian's pain and I cheered him on with his hard-won triumphs. And as always, those steamy scenes get a HUGE thumbs up from me!

    Pretty Doll #3
    Publication Date: July 17, 2017
    Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance



    Benny, broken, hurting, and alone
    Lost his dolly, his love, his home.

    Then out of old pain, fresh prospects come to life,
    Benny’s sick mind summons him, so his hand takes the knife.

    Have you ever been so lost that you became a shadow? Lurking but not living. Existing in the background where no one notices you.
    My doll betrayed me, killed me in more ways than she realized.
    I’m watching, waiting, wanting.
    One day soon she’ll give me back what she took away…
    it’s funny how life works that way.

    Monster Among The Roses by Linda Kage is LIVE!


    Will you dare to gaze upon the monster among the roses?


    MONSTER AMONG THE ROSES
    Fairy Tale Quartet #1
    Linda Kage
    Releasing July 24, 2017



    “Do you know how to get to the rose garden?”
    “No, you can’t go there. A monster lives there.”

    Shaw Hollander is desperate.

    Broke, unemployed, and determined to help his ailing mother, he falls on the good graces of a wealthy benefactor who is willing to give Shaw a job at his mansion in order to pay off his mother’s debts. Suddenly finding himself surrounded by lavish riches, he has no idea what his duties truly entail until he’s sent to the rose garden and meets the tragically mutilated Isobel.

    This Beauty and the Beast story holds true to the core of the fable while shaking off the element of fantasy and dragging it into present day reality. Shaw and Isobel are ready to let you climb into their four-wheel-drive pickup and take a ride with them into their version of happily ever after, but only if you first dare to gaze upon the monster among the roses.

    about the book(2)

    Trixsters Anonymous Ebook 

    Sassy, dramatic, hot-headed are just some of the words used to describe me since the time I was born. A few little mishaps growing up and my mom has a running ‘Emerson Baker’ prayer circle, and I have the reputation of a spit-fire that won’t go away.

    I prefer the terms loyal, passionate, fiery, and possibly a bit impulsive.

    So when my best friend proposes the concept of starting our own business, I jump on the idea.

    CHEATERS BEWARE!

    That should be our motto… because your secrets can’t stay hidden for long with Trixsters Anonymous on the case.

    Excerpt:
    “You get to a point where you have to decide whether or not you want to live,” he said. “You only have one hand, and your whole body’s a world of pain. And you look in the mirror and you know—” His voice hitched and halted, and he cleared his throat. “You know you’re going to be alone … and that no one is ever going to … no one …”

    His breathing was fraught and heavy through his nose again, and Savannah suspected he was crying as hard as she was, so she turned in his arms again, and without looking at his face, she gathered him against her body. Her legs tangled with his, her breasts pressed against his chest, and she rested her lips to the pulse in his throat. His arm tightened around her back, and his shoulders shuddered with quiet sobs.

    Whatever force made Lucky, either God or the Universe, wrapped him so tightly around my heart that sometimes I’m suffocating.

    Biologically, we are made of too many similar parts, yet our chemistry is like a meteor shower, raining bright sparks of light into the dark night.

    But it’s not our biology or chemistry that worries me the most, it’s the physics of our love that goes against the cosmos.

    Review: Pretty New Doll

    Pretty New Doll Pretty New Doll by Ker Dukey
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    Oh Benny... oops, I mean Benjamin. Don't want your crazy ass to come after me. I knew I hadn't seen the last of you. That creepy ending of book 2 was like a harbinger of things to come, huh? You're like a cockroach and I mean that in the nicest possible way. Despite the odds you're persistent, ingenious, industrious and resilient. You're the survivor that no one seems to want to survive. Love you ;)

    How the heck did these authors get me to sympathize with this guy? Again? Seriously??? I know that his relationship with his pretty new doll should be seen as sick, disgusting, twisted, perverted, cruel, and oh so very wrong and what he's doing is illegal... but... a huge small part of me was rooting for them. C'mon, am I really the only one who fantasized about Benjamin getting a happy ending somehow? Or reasoned that maybe he wasn't the worst bad guy in town? Whatever! I think my opinion is justified because these authors made him a bit too hard to resist. How many times can I be told how hot he is without finally being convinced that he's freaking HOT?!

    "My scars are a constant reminder of my dirty little doll and her betrayal."


    I enjoyed the fact that Jade and Dillon still played huge roles not only in the story, but in Benjamin's thoughts. I predict many people will appreciate getting Dillon's perspective on the situation and will be screaming at him, as I was, to freaking open his eyes and get a clue. And you call yourself a detective. SMDH. Detect then dude!

    So there's a surprising twist and I really wish you could see my imaginary jazz hands as I type this... I honestly predicted the twist in a way but the perpetrator was a stroke of genius. Now that excites the freak out of me and I am truly anxious to continue this story. Monster to the rescue... I think?
