REBOOT BLOG TOUR: A Tiny Piece of Something Greater by Jude Sierra


Good morning, everyone!

If you follow my blog, you know I don’t usually post on the weekends, but today, I’ve made a special exception! Due to some personal things that were going on around the release, Jude Sierra didn’t get to really promote her book A TINY PIECE OF SOMETHING GREATER, a story of romantic love and learning to love yourself. So! Jude has decided to do a reboot tour, and when she asked me, I simply could not say no as I absolutely adored this book.

37830506Reid Watsford has a lot of secrets and a past he can’t quite escape. While staying at his grandmother’s condo in Key Largo, he signs up for introductory dive classes, where he meets Joaquim Oliveira, a Brazilian dive instructor with wanderlust. Driven by an instant, magnetic pull, what could have been just a hookup quickly deepens. As their relationship evolves, they must learn to navigate the challenges of Reid’s mental illness on their own and with each other.

Thus, today, she’s dropped by for an interview! I hope you enjoy, because I had a lot of fun with it!

Also, at the end of the post, I will include a graphic and links to the other blogs participating in the tour!

Decades ago, Drosselmeyer trapped the Red Prince in the form of a doll to save her from the Rats.

Writer Wednesday: A Guest Post by Daria Defore


If you’re on social media–Twitter and tumblr in particular–you’ve probably seen the term “monsterfucking” recently. Most likely in reference to the new movie VENOM, but perhaps regarding other forms of media as well. The rise in public acknowledgement of interest in “monsterfucking” is an interesting phenomenon, and one that I particularly enjoy, because I think it’s fun to think about.

Today, for an exciting and different type of Writer Wednesday post, author Daria Defore is here to talk about this recent rise in public acknowledgement and the reasons why. I hope you enjoy the post as much as I did!

Subgenre: Contemporary Romance, Male/Male Romance, Holiday Romance, Military Romance

Book Synopsis:

One hard-nosed military police officer.

One overly enthusiastic elf.

One poorly timed snowstorm.

Is it a recipe for disaster? Or a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for holiday romance?

Teddy MacNally loves Christmas and everything that goes along with it. When he plays an elf for his charity’s events, he never expects to be paired with a Scrooge masquerading as Santa Claus. His new mission: make the holiday-hating soldier believe he was born to say ho-ho-ho.

Sergeant Major Nicholas Nowicki doesn’t do Santa, but he’s army to his blood. When his CO asks an unusual favor, Nick of course obliges. The elf to his Kris Kringle? Tempting. Too tempting—Nick’s only in town for another month, and Teddy’s too young, too cheerful and too nice for a one-night stand.

The slow, sexy make-out sessions while Teddy and Nick are alone and snowbound, though, feel like anything but a quick hookup. As a stress-free holiday fling turns into Christmas all year round, Teddy can’t imagine his life without Nick. And Nick’s days on the base may be coming to a close, but he doesn’t plan on leaving anything, or anyone, behind.

ARC Review: War of Storms by Erica Cameron


35262894Publisher: Entangled
Release Date: November 5, 2018
Received From: Review copy from the publisher / NetGalley

The immortal mages have risen, and they’re out for blood.

Khya arrived at the Ryogan coast too late to stop the invasion. Now, cities are falling before the unrelenting march of an enemy army, and Khya’s squad is desperately trying to stay ahead of them. Warning the Ryogans, though, means leaving her brother imprisoned even longer. Time is running out for everyone.

But how can her squad of ten stand against an army of ten thousand?

Calling in help from every ally she’s made in Ryogo, Khya tries to build a plan that won’t mean sacrificing her friends or her brother. It’s a tough balance to find, especially when the leadership role she thought she wanted sits heavy on her shoulders, and her relationship with Tessen is beginning to crack under the strain.

The end is coming, and there’s no way to know who’ll be left standing when it hits.
