*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.

My planned trip for two unexpectedly turned into a trip for one. Rather than let

my breakup get me down, I packed my bags and decided a week at a luxury

resort was just what I needed.

But one calamity after the next, and suddenly I was stuck without a hotel room,

along with a few hundred other people.

It looked like my fancy vacation was about to turn into me sleeping on the hotel

lobby floor.

Until I overheard a gorgeous man pretending to be someone he wasn’t in order

to steal a reservation from a guest who hadn’t shown up yet.

When I realized there were two rooms, instead of calling him out, I pretended to

be his sister. That’s how the story of “Milo and Maddie Hooker” began.

We were the Hookers.

My depressing trip quickly made a U-turn into an adventure.

My fake brother spent the next few days showing me around his hometown.

When it was time to leave, neither of us really wanted to go yet.

So, instead of flying back to our respective homes, we ventured on a road trip.

At every stop, we’d pick up souvenirs.

But as hot as our chemistry was, we never crossed the line.

Milo knew I’d just come out of a tough relationship and didn’t want to mess with

a vulnerable woman.

So instead, at the end of our trip, we made a pact to meet again in three

months.

It was always my intention to meet him.

But when I got back home, reality hit in a big way.

And I worried I may have lost my handsome stranger forever.

Was there a place for him in my future?

Or had the memory of him just become my favorite souvenir?

Maddie and Milo have become MY FAVORITE Souvenir from the fabulous ViPen Duo! The Hookers were such a treat to spend time with!

We find ourselves with two strangers who become travel partners in the funniest way and they totally took a mini vacation in my heart!  I absolutely loved this book!  They find themselves in an adventure most is us can only dream of.

In true fashion from these authors, I found myself devouring the book and loving every minute of this sweet easy read. It has everything as usual that these authors love to give. Sexy, steamy, angst, humor and banter off the charts. But…the TWIST!!!! Lawddddd the twist was EPIC! The entire book was equally as Epic through and through!

I just love whatever these two authors throw at us!!

*Blog Tour/Review* Just One Year by Penelope Ward

JUST ONE YEAR IS LIVE!

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.

On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom.

(The ladies’ room was out of order. So, I used the men’s room. Don’t judge.)

I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parents’ house was allergic to our cat.

So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb—the British guy from the men’s room.

And so it began…my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that order?

The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.

Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.

He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.

That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.

So frustrating.

And…

Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.

And hot.

He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.

Too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between us—for so many reasons.

I definitely couldn’t fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.

This book was pure LOVE at first “smell”  for me *snickers*.  I absolutely flat out adored Caleb and all his British charm from the get go.  There was no having to make me fall in love with character, it happened effortlessly and instantly.

I loved Caleb and Teagan’s friends to lovers romance.   Just One Year had me laughing out loud and also tugged at my heart strings while being completely swoon worthy in true Penelope Ward fashion.

Both of these characters have troubled pasts and I loved reading how they help each other work through them and watching their story unfold.   This book was fast paced and kept me interested the entire time.  I read this beauty in one sitting which this author seems to have a knack for making me do with just about every single one of her books.  I never want to stop till the very last word!

I can’t wait to see what she gives us next.  Ms. Ward has always and will continue to be a go-to one-click author for me as I am sure to love whatever story she gives us!

*Release Blitz/Review* Crazy Heifer (Valentine Boys #2) by Lani Lynn Vale

The Valentine Boys #2
Release Date: February 25
I fell in love with his rope skills.
I stayed because somehow he took hold of my heart and made it his.
Callum Valentine didn’t mean to eavesdrop. Then again? When a man is calling a
woman fat right in front of your table, it’s kind of hard not to intervene.
Especially when the town’s most beautiful creature ever is the one being called
fat.
Desi just wants to be left alone. After an ugly divorce, she thinks she’s in
the clear. Then her ex takes it upon himself to continue to make her life
miserable, giving Desi no choice but to take it or leave.
In fact, her bags were nearly all the way packed when Callum poked his nose
into the most embarrassing spectacle the town of Kilgore has ever witnessed.
The moment he declares her his and off limits, everything changes—and
definitely not for the better.
As if things couldn’t get worse than being called a pitiful, fat heifer in
front of the hottest man she’s ever seen, Callum has to go and say that she’s
his, and they have to play a game that she’s not quite sure she wants to be
playing.
But before her eyes, things change. And suddenly the rules of the game aren’t
clear. And they’re crossing boundaries neither one of them see coming.

*Blog Tour/Review* The Day He Came Back by Penelope Ward

THE DAY HE CAME BACK IS LIVE!

A Standalone Contemporary Romance

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

Penelope Ward

It was the summer of my life.

I’d met the guy of my dreams.

Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer—and very much off-limits.

But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful.

He never treated me as his mother did—like hired help.

Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.

What a summer it was.

Until it all ended—badly.

I was never supposed to see Gavin again.

That didn’t stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years.

I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.

When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again.

But I wasn’t prepared.

What if he hated me?

What if he loved someone else now?

I wasn’t prepared for all the unknowns.

And most of all, I wasn’t prepared for today to be the day he came back.

I absolutely loved Raven and Gavin’s story. Gavin’s the rich boy, Raven is the maid’s daughter both from two very different sides of the Bay. These two have an undeniable, indisputable chemistry and find themselves in a summer of fun, stolen glances and sizzling kisses but when summer is over and Gavin is off to college where will that leave these two?

I loved this rich boy/poor girl story. There was so much more behind both of these characters then I was expecting and as usual I was not disappointed. Obviously with the title you can probably figure out that someone leaves and comes back, but the back story behind it all is a little crazy, angsty, heartbreaking and a good old second chance at romance that I am a total sucker for. The Day He Came Back had a little of everything I love in a good read that keeps me interested and as always look forward to the next book from this author. I know I didn’t give you much here to go off of because I don’t want to spoil anything here but this is one you definitely want to pick up and read.

*Blog Tour/Review* All Grown Up by Vi Keeland

ALL GROWN UP IS LIVE!

A Standalone Contemporary Romance

#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland

 

When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to.

Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.

Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.

My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.

Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.

His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.

But…he looked so familiar.

As I got closer I realized why.

He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home.

The boy next door.

Only now…he was all man.

I hadn’t seen him in years.

I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.

Which I did. Until summer came.

And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?

I absolutely loved Ford and Valentina! All Grown Up is another fantastic read from the ever talented Vi Keeland!

Ford was the boy next door and there was no way Valentina was getting involved, nope not happening. They had an unlikely connection with their age , Ford much younger than Valentina but these two certainly prove age is nothing but a number as the heart wants what it wants! This is the first book I’ve read the female falls for a much younger male and everything about Ford had me absolutely melting into a puddle of goo while reading this story! I don’t think I could love a character more than I loved Ford!!

All Grown Up certainly had a different twist of a storyline with the older female/younger male that we don’t see much of but what is 100% guaranteed with every book this talented author puts out is that you’ll fall head over heels in love with the story. She always gives us amazing stories that are full of banter, all the feels, swoony, sexy moments that will leave you not wanting it to end. I can’t wait for the next delicious read Vi Keeland gives us!!

Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: May 7, 2019

 

Years ago, they were in love. She was an up-and-coming superstar and he was the devilishly handsome security professional hired to keep her safe. They fell hard and fast, no matter how they tried to resist one another. But not everyone around them was happy about their relationship, and a string of lies and deceit destroyed what they once had.

Having just taken the helm of a nationally renowned protective services company, Kynan McGrath is looking to rebrand and revamp his career. The newly crowned Jameson Force Security is moving from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas to the mountainous steel town of Pittsburgh, and the last thing Kynan has time for is to deal with his past.

More than a decade has passed since their split, but even a bruised and battered heart remembers its first love. So when Joslyn Meyers comes to him for help, Kynan reluctantly agrees to keep her safe from a terrifying stalker who keeps threatening her life.

As the danger they face continues to intensify, Kynan realizes he’ll stop at nothing to protect the woman who turned her back on him all those years ago. Because one thing is certain—no matter how hard he tries to convince himself otherwise, Joslyn still has his heart.

*Blog Tour/Review* We Shouldn’t by Vi Keeland

 

 

Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning.

I was late for the first day at my new job—a job I’d now have to compete for even though I’d already worked eight years to earn it, because of an unexpected merger.

While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons.

She’d ticketed a long line of cars—except for the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine.

Annoyed, I decided to regift my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine. Chances were, the owner would pay it and be none the wiser.

Except, I accidentally broke the windshield wiper while slipping the ticket onto the car’s window.

Seriously, my day couldn’t get any worse.

Things started to perk up when I ran into a gorgeous man in the elevator. We had one of those brief moments that only happened in movies.

You know the deal…your body lights up, fireworks go off, and the air around you crackles with electricity.

His heated stare left me flush when I stepped off the elevator.

Maybe things here wouldn’t be so bad after all.

Or so I thought.

Until I walked into my new boss’s office and met my competition.

The gorgeous man from the elevator was now my nemesis. His heat-ed stare wasn’t because of any mutual attraction. It was because he’d saw me vandalize his car. And now he couldn’t wait to annihilate his rival.

There’s a fine line between love and hate—and we shouldn’t cross it.

We shouldn’t—but straddling that line could be so much fun.
