*Blog Tour/Review* The Rivals by Vi Keeland

Title: The Rivals

Author: Vi Keeland

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 13, 2020

The feud between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar.
Only neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before either of us was born.  Our grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my  grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather.
The two men  spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third business partner.  But in the end, neither man could steal half of her
heart away from the other.  
Eventually,  they all went their separate ways.  Our
grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest
business rivals in history.  
Our fathers  continued the family tradition of feuding.
And then Weston and I did, too.  
For the most part, we kept as much distance as possible. Until the day the woman who started the feud died—and unexpectedly left one of the most valuable hotels in the world to our grandfathers to share.  Now I’m stuck in a hotel with the man I was born to hate, trying to unravel the mess  our families inherited. As usual, it didn’t take long for us to be at each other’s throats.  Weston Lockwood was everything I hated: tall, smart, cocky, and too gorgeous for his own good.  We were fire and ice.  But that shouldn’t be an issue. Our families were used to being at war. There was just one minor problem, though.   Every time Weston and I fought, we somehow wound up in bed.

*Release Blitz/Review* Join the Club (KPD SWAT 2.0 Book 7) by Lani Lynn Vale

There are a few lessons one has to learn for themselves. Then there are the lessons that most people don’t have to learn because it’s just not done.

For instance, most people know instinctively that they shouldn’t crave the mother of their brother’s child.

Bourne Pena isn’t most men.

Bourne does everything he can to fight the attraction he feels for Delanie, but in the end, his refusal to go there almost ends up costing him his life.

***

Delanie Davidsdottir just wanted to forget. One night, she wanted to feel like a normal human being.

That one night changes her life and gives her a daughter that becomes her heart and soul. From that point forward, she does her level best to keep her head on straight and not make any more mistakes.

And falling for her child’s father’s twin brother—say that three times fast— would be a mistake. Not only is he Trouble with a capital T, he’s also a SWAT officer that puts his life on the line every single day.

She can’t take another loss like the one she suffered once before.

Then again, Delanie never encountered a man like Bourne Pena before, either.

*Release Blitz/Review* Code Name: Ghost (Jameson Force Security #5) by Sawyer Bennett

Code Name: Ghost (Jameson Force Security, Book #5)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: June 30, 2020

I knew the risks of this job when I signed on with Jameson Force Security. Knew my time as a marine would prepare me for the danger I would face. But no amount of training could have ever prepared me for the helplessness of watching my teammates die, the agonizing mental and physical pain of torture, or the despair of captivity.

Returning home to Pittsburgh following a mission gone wrong, I am riddled with guilt and haunted by nightmares. I spend my days trying to regain the parts of myself I lost in that desert, the pieces that made me the Malik Fournier I once was. While the physical effects of my torture are fading, the emotional ones are proving much more stubborn and I find solace from the last person I should ever seek such comfort.

Anna Tate lost even more than I did in that mission. Now a widow and a single mom to the daughter she gave birth to shortly after her husband’s death, Anna offers me comfort I don’t deserve. As my feelings for Anna grow, I worry that once she learns the truth about what happened, she’ll turn her back on me.

I pull her to me just as tightly as I push her away. Hoping this forbidden love will save me from the ghost I’ve become.

Not for Samuel and Freedom. Will they be able to forget about their trip when
they return to Rockland Falls? What if one mistake turns out to be the best
thing ever?

*Release Blitz/Review* Risk (Brothers of Ink and Steel #4) by Allie Juliette Mousseau

Title: RISK

Series: Brothers on Ink and Steel
Author: Allie Juliette Mousseau
Genre: Enemies to Lovers/2nd Chance Romance
Release Date: June 23, 2020
Cover Design: Allusion Graphics
USA Today Bestselling Author Allie Juliette Mousseau delivers a sexy, quick-witted and sassy enemies-to-lovers second-chance romance featuring one smoldering alpha attorney; a feisty, determined social worker; and three young orphans in trouble…

Saint Sophia the Mother of Orphans, help us!

Connor Callahan, once a North House teen who shed his own blood to become a Brother of Ink and Steel, is now a powerful attorney and the Twin Cities’ most eligible bachelor. He challenges stereotypes and melts panties with his rugged good-looks, colorful tattoos, and brazen piercings. When he’s handed the case of a lifetime with the promise of partnership in the firm he’s dedicated his career to, he knows his destiny is close.
Then he gets a glimpse of the familiar Saint Sophia pendant his opposing council wears, and he finds himself wondering… could it really be her, the girl he met as a teenager? He never thought he’d see the blond whirlwind again after she blew in and out of his life, but she was wholly unforgettable. Like a tattoo over his heart. If only he could get close enough to be sure it’s really her… but she’s never going to let that happen.
Elle Hayes despises the formidable Mr. Callahan and everything he stands for. Though he puts on an immensely charming act—and is hotter than the desert sun—she knows he’s a fake. There’s no way she’s going to let Callahan interfere with her objective: finding a home for the vulnerable orphans his client has torn apart.
Then an unexpected set-up has Connor and Elle playing house together for a week…
As the tension—and heat—revs up between them, they discover that they each have a whole lot more to lose than just a court case. Their hearts are on the line—and so much more.
But to experience the greatest things in life, we have to take the greatest risks.
RISK Brother of Ink and Steel (Book 4) is a standalone novel. There’s no need to read the earlier titles beforehand, but this book features charming cameos by title characters from the Brothers of Ink and Steel and True North Series. You’ll want to go back and read them all.

*Release Blitz/Review* Joke’s On You (SWAT 2.0 Book #6) by Lani Lynn Vale

JOKES ON YOU
SWAT Generation 2.0 Book 5
Release Day – June 09, 2020
Booth Pena definitely didn’t make the smartest of decisions
when he was a teenager.
At eighteen, he knocked a girl up and signed up for the
military all in the same day—signing his life away in more ways than one. Fast
forward six weeks and he’s in bootcamp learning that he’s going to be a father
while also learning that not only is he going to be deployed, but it’s going to
stay that way for a year.
There weren’t a lot of things that the baby’s mother and he
saw eye to eye on after that. He honestly wasn’t sure why he even slept with
her in the first place.
Okay, that last part is a lie. He knows exactly why he slept
with her. Because the real woman he’s in love with, her twin sister, Dillan,
won’t give him the time of day.
Five years later, and he still wants her.
Now he’s home for good, being the best father and police
officer that he can be, and still he’s not good enough.
***
Dillan Davidsdottir hated Booth Pena. Immensely.
She hated him because he slept with her sister, then left.
Granted, she knew that he hadn’t meant to leave like he did, unknowingly and
unconsciously leaving his daughter behind, but that didn’t change the fact that
he had.
Five years later, and she still dislikes him just as much
now as she did when he chose the wrong sister to take to his bed.
Maybe if he’d chosen her, her heart wouldn’t be broken, and
his wouldn’t be untouchable.
But when a SWAT officer sees his life flash before his eyes,
and decides that enough is enough, what’s a girl to do?
Give in, that’s what.
