Release Week Blitz+Excerpt+Giveaway: "Dignity" (The Breaking Point #2) by Jay Crownover

 

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jay Crownover returns with the second title in her romantic suspense series, The Breaking Point, DIGNITY. Check out the excerpt below and grab your copy today!

                              

About DIGNITY:

Looks can be deceiving.

I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter.

I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth.

I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead.

I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else.

That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime, and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim, and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard on duty.

I shut the door in her face, but now she’s gone…vanished…disappeared without a trace. It took less than a second for me to realize that I wanted her back.

When a woman comes along that melts all the frozen, hard things you’re made of; you’ll do anything you have to, to bring her home.

What you see is not always what you get…and with a man like me, what you get is more than anyone ever bargained for.

EXCERPT 


I was dragging ass when I took the stairs up to Booker’s unit. Typically, I could run up the three flights and not even get winded, but I was running on fumes and the last traces of adrenaline. My brain was fuzzy, and my normally sharp thoughts felt scattered and unruly. The past and the present were at war in my mind, and the battle for which one made me feel worse was raging.
I made my way through the quiet loft listening for any sound that would indicate Noe was up and moving around. When I got closer to the bedroom, I heard the shower running and swear words chasing the steam out of the open door. It was going to be painful for a while when the water sluiced over her wounds. The thought had me squeezing my eyes closed and clenching my hands into fists. Just because tough things didn’t break didn’t mean they couldn’t be damaged, dented, and scratched. The fact Noe was currently suffering so much wear and tear because of me scraped across my skin and dug into my belly like sharp knives.

I was turning to walk out of the room so she could finish in peace when the running water went silent and her swearing ramped up a notch. I heard her banging around in the bathroom and then she yelled, “Booker, I need a towel! I’m dripping all over your floor.”

I opened my mouth to tell her Booker was gone and that I would go find her one. I didn’t need her poking through his stuff and running across a submachine gun or a rocket launcher. My brain was ping-ponging between annoyance that she’d called for Booker instead of me and the unrelenting image of her, naked, wet, and dripping onto the tile. I wasn’t a guy prone to fantasy, but damn if I didn’t get all kinds of caught up in the thought of her pretty olive skin glistening with moisture from head to toe. I needed to get away from her. I needed space so I could find a way to wrap armor back around all the soft parts of me she exposed.

I was shaking my head to marshal my thoughts back in order when I heard her swear again. Suddenly, like I conjured her out of a dream, Noe was standing in the pocket doorway of the bathroom wearing nothing more than a scowl of irritation and shimmery, shiny water droplets. Her midnight-colored eyebrows shot up to her hairline, and a bright pink flush stained the top of her chest and crawled up her neck into her face. She didn’t lift her hands to cover herself. She stood as still as I was, not moving at all under my furious and hungry gaze.

I wanted to be polite and look away. I told myself it was rude to stare and that the last thing she needed was some guy she barely knew gawking at her like she was a priceless work of art on a museum wall. I berated myself for this invasion of privacy but none of the lecturing or preaching did any good. The only way I could have torn my eyes off that petite frame, with it’s perfectly perky breasts and slightly rounded hips, was if someone slapped them out of my head. I couldn’t blink. I was scared to breathe. I felt like if I moved at all she would bolt like a startled deer, and I needed another second, another minute, another hour, to memorize every single part of her.

She was small, but all the parts added up to perfection. Seeing her like this, stripped bare with nothing to hide behind, I couldn’t believe I’d ever been stupid enough think she was a boy. Everything about her was delicate, feminine, and soft. The hollow of her neck, the elegant curve of her shoulders, the flare of her hips and the fullness of her ass. Her legs weren’t long, but they were toned and shapely. She was the very definition of good things coming in small packages and all I wanted to do was wrap her up and put her on a shelf that was too high and too hard to reach for anyone but me.

Choking on possession and a surge of lust unlike anything I’d ever felt, I belatedly turned my back on her and muttered thickly, “I used all the towels in there last night when I cleaned you up. I’ll go find where Booker keeps the extras.”

She moved. I felt it. The current that ran between us pulsed and throbbed with something hot. I heard her bare feet on the carpet and it took every ounce of willpower I possessed to keep my feet planted and my back turned. She was naked in a room with a very big bed and I was a man who never had such a visceral reaction to anyone…ever. If I had a switch, Noe Lee was the only person who had ever come along and flipped it. I was the actual definition of turned on when I had been off for most of my life.

Blog Tour+ARC Review: Maverick (North Ridge #2) by Karina Halle

SBPRBanner-Maverick-BT.jpg

Maverick by Karina Halle 

Release Date: October 17th 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Maverick-print-for-web.jpg

Maverick, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is LIVE!!!

Maverick is a complete standalone novel and the second book about the rough and rugged Nelson brothers. Get ready for one wild alpha mountain man - Canada's never felt so hot!

Forget playing it safe.
John “Maverick” Nelson likes to live his life on the edge – literally. A crucial member of the search and rescue team in the mountainous British Columbian town of North Ridge, Maverick’s brash and bold attitude means he’s the first one to ascend into danger, no matter the risk.
When it comes to women, though, Maverick errs on the side of caution. For all his cocky charm, rugged good looks and sexual swagger, he remains as unreachable as the surrounding peaks. Hot, wild sex? He’ll tell you there’s no better way to spend a cold, wintry night. Relationships? He’d rather freeze.
That is until he lays his eyes on American Riley Clarke. Trading in the crippling expenses of Aspen for BC, Riley is North Ridge’s newest member of their search and rescue team and the only woman on the job, which means spending a lot of time with Mav in adrenaline-pumping situations.
With the chemistry between them hot enough to melt snow, keeping their hands off each other is the detriment to the success of their team. Besides, Maverick’s her boss and she didn’t work her ass off in Colorado just to throw it all away for some mind-blowing sex.
But when the worst winter in years sweeps in, Riley and Maverick will have to battle the elements along with their attraction for each other. And if either of them slips up, both of them will be in for a deep freeze.

REVIEW

I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

I never get bored of reading the books of Karina Halle! They are funny, emotional and very, very hot. So, Maverick was also no exception! The boss of the Search and Rescue (SAR) team, he knows how to do his job and falls hard for Riley!

The prologue of this book was one of the most heart-breaking I've read in the books of this author. I couldn't help but compare it to a title of her other series "The Lie". And despite the plot and the emotions burning here, along with the sexual tension, there was a good chuck on information concerning all those who dedicate their time and lives in order to help those in need. It's a tough job, with sometimes few resources and taxing too.

I truly enjoyed Maverick and I can't help but be excited for the next and final book in the series too!

Review: "Zero Repeat Forever" (The Nahx Invasions #1) by Gabrielle Prendergast


Zero Repeat Forever by Gabrielle Prendergast
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

He has no voice, or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.

Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.

His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.

Until a human kills her…

Sixteen year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade, annihilating entire cities, taking control of the Earth. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her friends have only a fragment of instruction from the human resistance.

Shelter in place.

Which seems like good advice at first. Stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn’t like feeling helpless but what choice does she have?

Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.

Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival depends on trusting each other…




BUY ON 



REVIEW


This book was one of my most anticipated titles. Ever since the cover reveal and the pitch line of "The 5th Wave meets Beauty and the Beast", I truly wanted to have this book in my hands.
But let's get something clear. While the situation between the "5th Wave" and "Zero Repeat Forever" is similar, Gabrielle's book is far more emotional, touching with no philosophical bul*it about stars.

The story follows Raven, a troubled teen who had issues with drugs and her behaviour and was sent to a summer camp along with her boyfriend and his twin brother. When the Nahx invade and survival becomes vital for all, a group of brave ones along with Raven, begin to travel in order to find rescue and escape the Nahx soldiers who scout the earth, killing the humans in sight.

Enter Eight, a Nahx soldier who feels far more than he is allowed to and he can't help but feel defective and sorry for his existence.

While the pace is indeed slow (and I saw many fellow reviewers mentioning that), the story picks up through the middle of the book and on. But the first part makes a great job on setting the emotional plane of both characters and also outline how the loss of life affects everyone and how devastated and savage humankind can be when reason goes out of the window.



The title is also explained, which was one of the saddest moments in the book and my heart ached for Eight. He is so strong, yet his emotional state and POV made me feel like he was a constantly kicked puppy. His devotion to Raven is beyond words and I also loved the way he could communicate only with sign language. In some scenes his POV was so emotional, I couldn't help but remember the song the Beast sang on the new "Beauty and the Beast" movie!



Both characters also are POC, which I will let you discover it on your own.

The book was a small cliffhanger for me because it gave away a crucial clue about the truth behind everything. I can only pray that the ending of this series won't be like the one on the "5th Wave" because I will be devastated.

A great read with a gorgeous cover, which I would love to have as a tattoo and an amazing story!

Blog Tour+ARC Review+Giveaway: "27 Hours" by Tristina Wright








27 Hours by Tristina Wright
Publication Date:  October 3, 2017
Publisher:  Entangled Teen

BLURB

Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.

But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.

Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother's shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon's darkest secret.

They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.

During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.

27 Hours is a sweeping, thrilling story featuring a stellar cast of queer teenagers battling to save their homes and possibly every human on Sahara as the clock ticks down to zero.

REVIEW

I received an e-ARC from the publisher from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

This book was one of the most unexpected surprises of 2017! I knew from the blurb that it was going to be a diverse book, but I never expected the whole spectrum of the LGTB+ themes to show! Add in the sci-fi genre, a picturesque planet which is far more dangerous than it shows and you have a thrilling adventure which takes place in the span of 27 hours. 

Honestly, for a moment I was reminded of the show "24 Hours", which had a similar base; the story evolves through the span of these hours and the protagonists all face their troubles and fears. 

I loved every character in the book, but mostly I loved Nyx and Jude. They were so empathetic, striving to express their emotions and fears. Not that the rest of the gang wasn't good but these two hit too close to my heart for me.

Did I also mention that the monsters of the planet are actually....gargoyles? YUP, you had me with the term gargoyles! Also, the book has action and you don't get bored through the course of the plot.
I really can't wait to see what will happen to the next book!

ARC Review: "The Emperor of Evening Stars" (The Bargainer #2.5) by Laura Thalassa


The Emperor of Evening Stars by Laura Thalassa
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

In the beginning, there was darkness. 
Before he met Callie, before he became the Bargainer, there was Desmond Flynn, the bastard son of a scribe. A boy born to a weak mother, cursed with little magic, and destined to marry a slave.

But fate had something else in mind.

Till darkness dies. 
From the barren caves of Arestys to the palace of Somnia to the streets of earth, this is how Desmond Flynn, a fairy who began with nothing, became the Emperor of Evening Stars.






PRE-ORDER ON



REVIEW

I received an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

This book-length novella follows the story of Desmond before he became the Night King and also before meeting Callie. It begins with his life as a poor boy who later became the most notorious thief and finally the King of the Night Kingdom. Also, from a point later we can see his POV after meeting Callie and how he felt when he met her for the first time.

I must admit that the guy has an amazing poker face. And honestly, I couldn't help but compare him a little to Rhysand from the ACOTAR series. They are both amazing and Des has a wicked sense of humour. This connects nicely to the third book which I hope won't be as bloody as I fear it.





And don't miss the amazing first two books of the series!









About the author:

Found in the forest when she was young, Laura Thalassa was raised by fairies, kidnapped by werewolves, and given over to vampires as repayment for a hundred year debt. She’s been brought back to life twice, and, with a single kiss, she woke her true love from eternal sleep. She now lives happily ever after with her undead prince in a castle in the woods.

… or something like that anyway.

When not writing, Laura can be found scarfing down guacamole, hoarding chocolate for the apocalypse, or curled up on the couch with a good book.

Sailor Bishop has only one goal for his future – to create a successful landscaping business. No distractions allowed. Then he comes face-to-face and lips-to-lips with a woman who blushes like an innocent… and kisses like pure sin.

Ísa Rain craves a man who will cherish her, aches to create a loving family of her own. Trading steamy kisses with a hot gardener in a parking lot? Not the way to true love.

And Sailor Bishop has wickedness on his mind.

As Ísa starts to fall for a man who makes her want to throttle and pounce on him at the same time, she knows she has to choose – play it safe and steady, or risk all her dreams and hope Sailor doesn’t destroy her heart.

EXCERPT

Fuming, Ísa made sure to set the alarm system and lock up. Everyone else was already well into their summer vacation—the sole reason Ísa was here was because she hadn’t been able to work on her lesson plans at home.
Her upstairs neighbor was having repairs done to her bathroom that required banging and hammering.
Not all of it involved nails and wood.
Hopefully the repairs would be finished by now. There was only so much ecstatic orgasmic screaming that a single woman in online-dating purgatory could stand without being driven to violence.
She spotted the tan-colored gardening truck the instant she came down the front steps of the school’s imposing redbrick main building and turned left to head toward her car. The hot gardener had parked it right next to her zippy blue compact. The front of the truck had four doors with tinted windows while the large bed was piled with shovels and other manly tools as well as a huge sack of clippings.
His light brown T-shirt was hanging over the top of the tailgate.
Which meant he was still walking around topless somewhere around here.
“Get in your car, Ísa,” she muttered to herself, well aware what would happen if she came face-to-face with that delicious hunk of manhood. Because while she might’ve conquered her shyness, she knew her limits.
Confronted by a bare-chested man who made her ovaries explode, she’d turn bright pink, lose her ability to form speech, and end of story. “Oh—”
She would’ve bounced off that sculpted chest if he hadn’t grabbed her by the hips.
“Hey, sorry,” he said with a startled smile that lit up the dazzling blue of his eyes. “I didn’t see you.”
“No, um, my fault.” It looked as if he’d crouched down to check one of his tires or something else but had risen to his feet right when she swung around to get into her car. And God, his skin was so hot and smooth and he was so tall and his shoulders were so broad and her mouth was drying up. The stuttering would begin at any moment.
The same stuttering Suzanne had mocked relentlessly when they were fourteen. Until Ísa had gone silent around everyone except the few friends she trusted. And now that horrible, ugly-hearted girl was getting married, having a baby, getting a happily-ever-after. Added to which, Ísa’s mother was jerking her on a string like she was a marionette, and her last “date” had asked her to call him Woofy and reward him with doggy biscuits.
The blue of the gardener’s eyes flickered with a hot flame.
And she thought… I know him. But before she could follow that faint thread, all the fury and hurt and frustration and sheer aggravation in Ísa ignited into an incandescent inferno.
She went mad.
Grabbing the hot gardener’s beautiful face in her hands, she said, “I want to kiss you.”
A wicked grin. “Go on ahead.”
And Ísa pressed her lips to his.

Top 10 Tuesday: Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers


This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Tuesday #122: If there is a season themed cover, I love it very much! (well I adore all beautiful cover but who cares!). Also, this list will have books that take place both in fall and/or in winter so you may see some Halloween themed books too.


10: Coraline by Neil Gaiman: Creepy and amazing this book and the movie know how to make you feel a chill about...spiders.



9: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness: Taking place also in the autumn, this book is being made into a tv series! I can't wait to see the characters come into life!



8: Snow like Ashes by Sara Raasch: We have all seasons here and the war that rages is terrifying and amazing!



7: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis: The Witch with the winter, the amazing scenery and of course, one of the best adaptations of the book in the cinema!



6: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake: One of the best Halloween themed books with ghosts, haunted houses and romance!



5: The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons: Taking place in the Russian winter during World War II, this historical romance is way too realistic and eye-opening about the pain of hunger.



4: Brightest Kind of Darkness by P.T. Michelle: Taking place in the fall this story is a mix of mythology, romance and mystery!



3: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater: My choice for this book was mainly the colours and because all the trilogy takes place in the course of a year, so both fall and winter are featured. Not to mention wolves!



2: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: The book is magic incarnate, with an amazing storyline and also featuring an enchanted winter!



1: An enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson: Beautiful, amazing and one of my favourite fall reads! There are many seasons featured here, not to mention the ravens!
