*Release Blitz/Review* Forever Devoted (Crazed Devotion Book 2) by C.A. Harms

Title: Forever Devoted
Series: Crazed Devotion Book 2
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 26, 2017

A stubborn man, an independent woman.
Oh how those two things clash.
Former Marine, Benjamin Keaton has a drive in him.
A strong willed nature to seek and conquer.
When he meets Elizabeth Berfield he finds out one thing and he finds out fast.
He has met his match.
She doesn’t let anyone tell her what to do, especially a man.
A battle of wills and a game of survival unfolds. Oh what a ride it is.
But Ben vows one thing,
He will be Forever Devoted to Liz. He will make her see that he is the man for her.
But will his determination be enough to convince her that he’s worth the risk?
Or will Liz do what she always does and remain headstrong and push away the one man willing to protect her heart.

 


Can one night turn into forever?

We meet Ben and Liz in book one, Nicole and Ryker’s book, but you do not have to read Always His in order to read Forever Devoted.

Liz and Ben first meet through their mutual friends and have one amazing night together. One night is all Liz plans for. She watched her mother suffer through being married to her dad until her dad left their family all together. She vows to never let herself be put in that position.

Ben is fine with one night. He’s a Marine. He’s not ready to settle down. At least that’s his plan until Liz knocks him off his feet. All he wants is a relationship with the one girl that wants nothing to do with one.

Can Ben tear down Liz’s walls or are they destined to be apart? This book had it all – the ups, the downs, the heat, the sorrow. Fast paced, sweet read.

LIZ

“There is a tall, handsome and might I add dreamy hunk of a man waiting just outside for you.”

I tried not to laugh at the wide-eyed expression of the teenage girl standing in my doorway. She was awestruck apparently, and the way she was smiling had to cramp her cheeks.

“Did you get his name?” I asked, already knowing who it was.

Her smile faltered as she looked over her shoulder, then back to me. “I forgot to ask,” she said in a high-pitched voice. “I guess I was distracted.”

It was my turn to smile, “Believe me when I say I know exactly how that can happen.” She looked a little relieved. “His name is Ben, and you can send him in.”

With a nod, she stepped out and within seconds he appeared in the open doorway.

“Good morning,” he said as he moved in and sat on the edge on my desk. His large frame practically swallowed up the surface beneath him. “You avoiding me again?”

“No.” I leaned back and crossed my arms over my chest. “I’ve actually been busy.”

He watched me closely, as if I would somehow show him I was lying. Arching my brow, I remained in place and his smile grew wider. “Have lunch with me.” It wasn’t a request.

“Busy,” I replied, holding up the stack of papers on my desk and giving them a little shake.

“Dinner then. I’ll even bring it to you if you can’t get away.”

“What are we having?” I asked, still not yet agreeing.

“What do you want?” His eyes remained locked on mine as he gave me a mischievous grin. Ben and I had developed this little flirty game. In fact, we’d pretty much mastered it. I knew he wanted me, and I wanted him. That was never the issue. I just had to learn to get past my hesitance and fears of what could go wrong.

“Steak,” I finally said, ignoring the flutter in my stomach. “Seasoned vegetables and garlic roasted potatoes.”

“Can we forego the garlic? I kinda wanna kiss you later and I don’t want any excuses from you. If I add garlic into the mix, well, I’m setting myself up for disappointment.”

I couldn’t help the laughter that bubbled up and spilled from me. “You’re insane.”

“For you, yes.”

This week we are wrapping up C.A. Harms 2016 Yearbook! Revisiting all the novels that she published this year. Day 5 with have an interview with C.A. Harms, Tough Love, and the Alphas & Fairytales Anthology.

1. Tis the Season and all that….Do you have any Christmas rituals, if so, what are they?

When I was younger my grandmother used to bake so many different sugar cookies, shaped in all sorts of Xmas designs. Each year she and I would sit down and decorate them. Afterwards we would place them on assorted trays, wrapped them and place a bow on top. The together we would distribute them to friends, neighbors and the retirement home she worked in. It was more about the time I got to spend with her and those memories we made. I look back now and love the fact that she and I shared those moments. Now I share them with my daughter.

2. For the year of 2016 would you find yourself on the nice list of the naughty list? If the naughty list please elaborate!

 Depends on if I’m making this determination strictly on my fictional world, if so then yes I’ve been naughty. Or my characters have and since they stem from my mind…well ya know.
3. When you are in your writing zone do you snack? drink? if so what is your go to writing snacks/drinks?

Yes I snack too much. I try to attempt the healthy stuff but it doesn’t seem to fit, so yes I try a mixture of the good and the bad. Drink my go to is coke, wine or water, depends on my mood.
4. Have any of your published novels been written at the same time, like 2 stories were swirling in that little head of yours so you decided to put them both on paper at the same time? Was this difficult to do?
I do this often. If I hit a snag in one story. A point where I know where I want to go just unsure of how to get it there I will step back and work on something a little different. And it honestly is easy for me to bounce back and forth.
5. Okay we all know there are sex scenes in your books, are those sex scenes from your imagination or experiences? Please don’t be shy – we won’t tell.
A little bit of both. My husband likes to tell people he is the inspiration for all my dirty times within the pages. So yes, a little of both 😉
6. What genre haven’t you written that you would love to get your feet wet in?
 
A Sexy Paranormal. 
7. I know a lot of readers/authors/bloggers, etc have issues with certain words. I am going to give you a small list of those cringe worthy words and you let me know if you have a dislike or love to them.
– Cream/Creamy/Creaming 
Um well lets just say if you are telling me you are about to offer up hot cup of cocoa with whipped cream on the top, I am good. But in now way will I be writing a scene about the naked chick sprawled across the mattress creamy and waiting then ick!
– Moist Nope not baking bread I prefer to say what it is WET
Hey if you LOVE those two words you can put them together creamy moist!
Okay back to the list
– Cunt Not offended but don’t use often
– Pussy Hell I use this a lot
– Cock Oh yeah, always use
– Mound Not offended just don’t use
– Dick Yep use often too
8. I have witness a list of all the different words you can use for the male and female southern region, what is the weirdest word you have ever read/heard, etc that was used for one or both of those body parts?
Winky…Only if your five years old
Flower… Um just no
9. With 2016 wrapping up how do you feel you have grown as an author?

I feel like I learn each day. From the way to express myself through my words as well as the way to show appreciation for those readers fans that I owe my success too.
10. If you could say something to everyone who has supported you (readers/bloggers/authors) what would you like to tell them?
They are the reason I write. Not for the sales or even the numbers, but for their kind words and encouragement. I love interaction with readers. I think that is the best part about being a writer. I am truly humbled by the support they show and continue to show. There are absolutely no words to describe how truly appreciative I am and how thankful I am. You are all my rockstars.
11. If you could say something to everyone who hasn’t supported you this year what would you say?
To each their own, and not every book is for everyone. But if you are ever looking to give a new author a chance, I would be grateful for the chance to grace your kindles.
12. What can we look forward to from you in 2017?
Lots of Sex…no just teasing well kinda. Lots of heartfelt stories with true likeable characters and a heckuva lot of heated times too.

Some lies you just can’t come back from. 
The damage is too deep. 
The effects are too strong, and the path they lead you on can be devastating. 
One lie only led to another as Lindsay tried to be someone she wasn’t. She wanted just one moment to pretend she didn’t live the life she had been cursed with. 
She wanted to live without regret. 
Live for the moment. 
She wanted to laugh and smile without feeling as if at any moment something or someone would corrupt that happiness. But all lies have a way of resurfacing. Those deceitful words can come back to haunt you, leaving you as the one heartbroken and alone. 

Zack had taken a trip with a fellow Navy SEAL. Just a weekend away to regroup. Never had he intended to find the girl who would jumpstart his heart. 
Only then to destroy it. 
But the shattered pieces of his trust weren’t the only things he left behind when he walked away from Lindsay. There was now an innocent life that had been thrown in to the mix. 
But Lindsay wasn’t the only one who lied… 
The odds were stacked against them. There was someone doing everything they could to keep them apart. 
But when the truth is told, and those secrets are revealed, they must decide if they have what it takes… 
To survive the deceit.

Title: Olivia’s Ride
Series: Sawyer Brothers #4
Keeton Pearce hadn’t lived a life full of supportive, loving family…

In fact, it was just the opposite.

He had been on his own for so long he had no idea what it felt like to belong. He didn’t want to rehash the life he left behind, or even think about it. But the hate from his father followed him, slowly eating away at the life he had begun to build for himself.
Olivia Sawyer had been prepped on how to deal with the advances of those college men she would encounter…
After all, she had been surrounded by three alpha men who made sure she knew just how to handle herself. But when she met Keeton Pearce, all those words of warning flew right out the window.
For the first time she had nothing to say. She was caught up in those eyes and that dimple.
The Sawyer attitude no longer gave her the ability to be immune.
Neither of them counted on meeting each other. It was by chance, and no one expected that one moment would change their lives forever.
For the first time in his life, Keeton had hope.
He felt like he had found where he belonged.
But would he survive the interrogation of an overprotective father and the watchful eyes of Jackson and Noah?

Or would Keeton run for the hills, fearful of…the Sawyer Brothers?

UNDENIABLE by CA Harms
Series: The Key West #4
Publisher: Limitless Publishing

synopsisSometimes in life you are forced to do things you may not agree with.

Family meant everything to Jude Calvert.

He would do whatever it took to keep them safe and provide for them no matter what it took to make that happen.

Even if that meant putting his own safety at risk, he had no other choice.

Callie Raine has always felt a heavy attraction toward Jude.

He was fascinating.

He was undeniable.

She knew there was so much more to him than he allowed anyone to see. But she was a headstrong woman and feeling weak was something she wouldn’t allow.

Except when it came to Jude.

However, when Jude is hit with the unexpected and forced to rely on others, Callie realizes he doesn’t take weakness easily.

He becomes even more withdrawn.

More angry.

Will he finally give in and learn to lean on those who care?

Or will he push them beyond the point of no return and once again be left to face his obstacles alone?
