JUDE-KindleIsha has spent the last year watching his BFF get his happily-ever-after. He’s proud of Dom, but…it hurts to see him so free while Isha’s love life is still on lockdown. Only Isha’s ex-wife knows the secret that he’s kept caged for so long—that he’s queer too, and he’s lonely.

Jude’s too chained to his work to notice what he’s missing by being terminally single, but a new face in the village soon catches his attention. City boy Isha is gorgeous, and when he starts to haunt Jude’s reptile shop as well as the hook-up app on his phone, he’s a welcome distraction from Jude’s business problems.

For a control freak like Isha, letting Jude under his skin is an existential meltdown, but Jude’s not in the market to be anyone’s queer crisis, not when he’s facing troubles of his own. Unlocking their lives could push both men apart forever, but it might be a risk worth taking if sharing is the key to their happy future.

ARC REVIEW: Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

SUMMARY

41150487Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Release Date: May 14, 2019
Received From: NetGalley

A big-hearted romantic comedy in which First Son Alex falls in love with Prince Henry of Wales after an incident of international proportions forces them to pretend to be best friends…

First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations.

The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince. Alex is busy enough handling his mother’s bloodthirsty opponents and his own political ambitions without an uptight royal slowing him down. But beneath Henry’s Prince Charming veneer, there’s a soft-hearted eccentric with a dry sense of humor and more than one ghost haunting him.

As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. And Henry throws everything into question for Alex, an impulsive, charming guy who thought he knew everything: What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?

Series: Hoops
Publication Date:  March 28, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Sports Romance

Hook Shot by Kennedy Ryan coverA deeply emotional standalone romance set in the worlds of professional basketball and high fashion.

Divorced. Single dad. Traded to a losing squad.

Cheated on, betrayed, exposed.
My perfect life blew up in my face and I’m still picking up the pieces.
The last thing I need is her.
A wildflower. A storm. A woman I can’t resist.
Lotus DuPree is a kick to my gut and a wrench in my plans
from the moment our eyes meet.
I promised myself I wouldn’t trust a woman again,
but I’ve never wanted anyone the way I want Lo.
She’s not the plan I made, but she’s the risk I have to take.

A warrior. A baller. The one they call Gladiator.

Kenan Ross charged into my life smelling all good, looking even better and snatching my breath from the moment we met. The last thing I need is him.
I’m working on me. Facing my pain and conquering my demons.
I’ve seen what trusting a man gets you.
I. Don’t. Have. Time. For. This.
But he just keeps coming for me.
Keeps knocking down my defenses and stealing my excuses
one by one.
He never gives up, and now…I’m not sure I want him to.

REVIEW: Fly With Me by Hudson Lin

SUMMARY

43823638Publisher: Self-pub
Release Date: February 28, 2019
Received From: Review copy from the author

She set out to explore the world and found love along the way.

Vivian Ng is as experienced as flight attendants come. Taking charge and getting stuff done has always been her MO. When her father pushes her to give up her Asian routes in favor of flights to Europe, she’s nervous about the change, but her skills have never failed her before.

Flight attendant Marco Chang is charming and he knows it. Growing up as an immigrant with absentee parents, he learned how to win people over with a smile and a sexy accent. But being popular never meant his heart was available.

When Vivian and Marco find themselves working the same flight to Rome, Marco is immediately smitten. Vivian is smart, competent, kicks ass and takes names. Vivian’s not as impressed. Marco’s cute, sure, but he’s helpful to a fault and she doesn’t need some guy telling her how to do her job.

As they hop back and forth across the Atlantic, the romance of European cities works its magic. But if there’s any hope of their budding attraction taking off, she’ll need to let go and he’ll need to let her in.

Content Warning: This book contains a scene of sexual harassment.

BLOG TOUR (Excerpt + Aesthetics!): Kingdom Cold by Brittni Chenelle

Header (Kingdom Cold)

Good morning, y’all!

I am so thrilled to be here today as part of the creative blog tour for KINGDOM COLD by Brittni Chenelle, which was organized and run by the lovely Shaelea @ Caffeine Book Tours!

In case you haven’t stopped by any of the other blogs yet–in which case, I am glad to be your first, but be sure to check out the others listed at the end of this post!–and don’t know what a “creative blog tour” is, it’s one in which each individual stop has something different that the tour hosts put together–aesthetics, creative photos, quote graphics, feature posts, and more! And many of us haven’t yet read the book, so it can be a bit of a guessing game. Sounds like fun, right? That’s why I jumped at the chance to join the tour!

And as the title of this blog post would suggest, I elected to include some aesthetics and an excerpt for my contribution! (All images were taken from free picture sharing sites, but credits will nevertheless be included underneath the graphic.) As I haven’t read the book yet, at the time I’m creating this post, the pictures I gathered are based on the blurb, cover, and some reviews that I’ve read, so I hope I’ve depicted the book accurately!

I hope you like the aesthetic I put together, as well as the excerpt, so please feel free to leave some comments!

RELEASE BLITZ (+ Excerpt!): Off the Ice by Piper Vaughn & Avon Gale

Off the Ice Banner 6

Release date: March 25, 2019

Publisher: Carina Press

Universal link: https://books2read.com/offtheice

Off-the-IceHe’s hot for teacher

NHL star Tristan Holt may be at the top of his game, but he’s already thinking one play ahead. Hitting the books in the off-season means he’ll have a business degree to fall back on when it’s time to hang up his hockey skates.

But his straightforward plan is complicated by his undeniable attraction to his sexy sociology professor, Sebastian Cruz.

Impressed by Tristan’s brain as well as his brawn, Sebastian can’t help lusting after the gorgeous jock. With tenure on the line, Sebastian won’t break the rules by becoming involved with one of his students—at least, not until the end of term. Once final grades are posted, though, their naughty mutual fantasies can become reality.

Tristan’s not sure he’s up for being the poster boy for openly gay hockey players, but Sebastian’s never been the type of man to keep his sexuality—or his relationships—in the closet. For Tristan, being with Sebastian might mean risking more than just his heart.

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

(Previously published; newly refreshed by the authors.)
