Review: Room 143 by Laramie Briscoe

Room 143

Laramie Briscoe

Published October 6, 2019

Around my neck lays a wedding ring.

In my right hand I hold a hotel room key.

Which one do I pick?

The marriage? The key?

Everything is not as it seems in room one-forty-three

4.5 Stars

I love it when Laramie Briscoe decides to do a stand alone book. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a long time fan and truly enjoy the worlds she had created. Hello, how can you not love Tyler. When Ms. Briscoe delights her readers with a stand alone read we get something a bit more emotional and deep. Room 143 hits the reader hard and fast with everything and possibly the kitchen sink too.

Nash is hottie who’s darn good with his hands and stuck in the cycles of grief. Caroline is starting over in a small town just trying to have a peaceful life. When one’s brothers push and another agree to do a favor for their best friend, it’s set the wheels in motion for something deeper and more life changing than anyone saw coming. Room 143 is an end and a beginning. It’s a change and turning point in two people’s lives. One night changes everything. When the darkness of the night fades and reality steps back in, the chemistry grows with the days they are together. Learning to navigate the ghost of the past and the people of the present has given the realization that love is different and you can love another without losing the love of one you had before.

Room 143 blew all of my expectations out of the water. I expected an emotional read but what I got was some so much more. Caroline is passionate and patient. Her confidence and compassion make her a truly unique character. She was one of those people that could truly give all of herself without losing any of her self. She is genuine in all that she does. Nash was so tangled in his grief his life was just motions. He was complex and seeing him go from the worst moments of his life to something more was one of the highlights of the read for me. Room 143 is a whirlwind of emotions, from the lowest of lows to the highest of highs. From mourning love to rediscovering love. Nash and Caroline are equine in their coupling and the passion they discover through one another is beyond pure. Room 143 is so worth using the key and opening the door.

My first book, IN TWO WEEKS was originally published in 2007. In 2010 I helped form a publishing company (Cool Gus Publishing) with NY Times Bestselling Author Bob Mayer where I ran the technical side of the business through 2016.

Mama always warned her that her sense of adventure would only lead to trouble. Tall. Dark. Delicious. Trouble.

 

About the author: 

USA Today Bestselling author Casey Hagen pens her snarky, passionate stories from the salty air of Kennebunk, Maine. She’s a born and raised Vermont native, a New England girl to the core, with Ben & Jerry’s in her heart and real Vermont maple syrup pumping through her veins.

She’s the proud mother of three girls and a new, first-time grandma with an insatiable addiction to Fall Out Boy, and a new, rather concerning obsession with tattoos and piercings. Can you say “cool grandma?”

The inked and pierced grandma spends her time tucked away in her office, coated in cat hair, alternating between tearing her hair out trying to find the perfect words and being one step ahead of her three scheming fur babies she is positive are plotting her demise with every swirl around her ankles at the top of her office stairs.

She loves writing stories about real people, with complicated histories, relatable everyday problems, and giving them the hard-won happily-ever-afters they deserve.

And she thanks every last one of you who picks up one of her stories.

Casey is done talking about herself in the third person.

He’d cracked the wall around her heart.

 

About the author: 

Nicole S. Patrick has always loved to read, and in her teenage years, she “borrowed” her mom’s books to sneak away and become lost in the world of romance. After more than ten years in the corporate world of tech recruiting and HR management, she decided to stay home and raise children. But with so many romantic stories and characters floating around in her head, when the kids napped, she was compelled to put those words on a page and pursue this crazy dream of becoming published. Nicole writes romantic suspense and her heroes are those alpha males in uniform. She lives in New Jersey with her real-life hero, her husband, and her two sons.

When a chance encounter warms the heart and lights the way home.

 

About the author: 

Stacey Wilk wrote her first novel in middle school to quiet the characters in her head. It was that or let them out to eat the cannolisand she wasn’t sharing her grandfather’s Italian pastries. 

Many years later her life took an adventurous turn when she gave birth to two different kinds of characters. She often sits in awe of their abilities to make objects fly, it snow on command, and remain dirty after contact with water. She does share the cannolis with them for fear of losing her fingers. 

Because of the extraordinary characters now in her home instead of in her head, including a king who surfaces after dark and for coffee, she writes novels about family: those that we are born to and those that we pick up along the way. You can find her message in her middle-grade fantasy novels as well as her women’s fiction novels. Family are those that love you when you need them.

When she’s not creating stories in make-believe places, she can be found hanging with the cast members of her house, or teaching others how to make make-believe worlds of their own.

Cover Reveal: HOT UNDER THE COLLAR by Roxanne St. Claire

New York Times bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire is kicking off a brand new series and we couldn’t be more excited about it! Check out the cover for HOT UNDER THE COLLAR and be on the lookout for it soon!

 

About HOT UNDER THE COLLAR

Firefighter Braden Mahoney is devastated when his beloved Weimaraner, Jelly Bean, fails the canine arson investigator test. Faced with the challenge of raising the money for advanced training, it’s Braden’s sweet grandmother and her best friend who suggest he use the services of the new event planner in town. Not that he needs a push in Cassie Santorini’s direction. Ever since she arrived, Braden has had his eye on the sassy Greek goddess…and can’t stop thinking about getting the rest of him on her, too.

Cassie has spent years putting family first, even moving to Bitter Bark when her mother falls in love with the local veterinarian. Having a huge new extended “family” is fun, especially when one smokeshow of a firefighter attends the gatherings, but Cassie has no plans to remain in this small town. She’s ready to pursue her big city dreams. But when Braden asks for an assist for his precious pup, Cassie agrees to help him set up a town-wide scavenger hunt. It isn’t exactly a hardship to be around those blue eyes and brawny shoulders, especially since they both agree everything – even the undeniable sparks that crackle between them – is temporary.

But when temporary gets complicated by feelings that might lead to forever, Braden and Cassie start to question the direction they’re headed. Should they follow their dreams…or their hearts? It’ll take a dog with a bad nose and a sweet soul, two particularly meddlesome grandmas, and some help from the clan that loves them to make sure Cassie and Braden follow the clues and find their way to each other’s arms.

Just like The Dogfather, the covers of The Dogmothers were all photographed at Alaqua Animal Refuge in Florida using rescue dogs and local heroes, and a portion of the first month’s sales of every book is donated to that amazing organization.

About the Dogmothers series

Daniel Kilcannon, a widower with six unmarried kids, has not only orchestrated wonderfully happy endings for all his offspring…he’s found one of his own. That leaves his grown nieces and nephews plus his adult stepkids all in need of their own magical romances. Is The Dogfather too preoccupied with his new lady love to pull the strings and make the matches? Maybe. But there’s a new team in town and these two might be polar opposites in life but they are lined up in love. One grandmother has the steel spine of a Greek warrior, the other has the heart of an Irish poet. Together, along with two darling dachshunds, these Dogmothers won’t stop until all nine of their grandchildren are hooked, hitched, and happy.

When Agnes Santorini arrives in Bitter Bark, she has something to prove. The notoriously nasty Greek grandma seeks to show her growing family that she’s an all new Yiayia, inside and out. At the same time, Finola Kilcannon, the beloved octogenarian Irish blogger, knows that her role as the mistress of Waterford Farm is now in the hands of her son’s fiancée, and it’s time for Gramma Finnie to start the next chapter in her life. It doesn’t take long for these ladies to realize that they are stronger, better, and way more powerful together than apart, so they move into a Victorian that’s aging as gracefully as they are, and get to work. It takes a wee bit of meddling, a dash of manipulation, and plenty of help from man’s best friend, but the Dogmothers soon become as good as their predecessor, the Dogfather, at orchestrating a happily ever after.

In this new spin-off series, there’s laughter, love, heartache, hope, and happy endings in store for the Mahoney, Santorini, and, of course, the Kilcannon clans. With nine full length novels planned, plus a holiday novella every year, readers are in for a treat that will take them through 2021! Fans of The Dogfather series will find the same level of emotional intensity, familiar family connections and characters, and, of course, an unforgettable dog at the very heart of every story.

Watch for the first two books in 2019:
HOT UNDER THE COLLAR (on sale May 31 – preorder now!)
THREE DOG NIGHT (coming Fall of 2019)
And many, many more!

Review: Misadventures With My Ex by Shayla Black

Misadventures With My Ex

Shayla Black

Misadventures Series

Kindle Edition, 1st edition, 196 pages
Published March 26th 2019 by Waterhouse Press

Once, Eryn Hope fell fast and incurably for Weston Quaid. And he seemed to adore her too—until she learned their love was built on lies when he walked out on their wedding day.

Three years later, West has finally won control of his family empire and fortune, but it cost him Eryn—something he regrets every day. When business forces him to return to her life and temporarily shut down her livelihood, of course she’s furious. But their chemistry is still beyond combustible. So he makes her a proposition: he’ll take care of her until her bistro reopens…if she becomes his mistress. Her mind screams no, but her body whimpers yes, yes, yes.

As soon as West has her back in his bed, their passion burns hotter than ever. So do his feelings. But can he and Eryn really recapture the love they shared? And when their bargain ends, will he be the one shattered this time or will they finally come together forever?

***Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.***

4 Stars

 

Eryn was head over heels for Weston. A man who swept her off her feel, made her feel and was ready to spend the

rest of her life him. That is until he didn’t show up for the wedding. No call, no note, no explanation. Eryn picks up the

pieces of what should have been her happily ever after and opens her own business. She tries to move on but something

about Weston, has him stuck in her heart, even though he broke it.

Weston comes from one of those power businesses family’s. When he finds love in a place his mother doesn’t

approve, Weston tries to make it work but in the end he gives up love for family politics. Or does he? Three

years has past and nothing has changed his feelings for Eryn one bit, but convincing the woman of his heart

will be a whole other story.

Shayla Black gives readers another hot and sexy read with Misadventures With My Ex.  Second chance stories

are some of my favorites. Eryn and Weston are amazing together.  Being such different people, they give a balance

to each other in subtle ways that intern make them each a better person. They have chemistry and attraction, but

discovering the truths of the past they learn that honestly and trust are they only way they will work.  Never falling out

of love with your ex, can have it rewards.

She laughs at inappropriate times.

She talks when she shouldn’t.

3.5 Stars

Lani Lynn Vale has done it once again.

Ever heard the term calamity Jane? Well that’s Raleigh. Queen of the klutzes.  Like myself, this woman will fall going up stairs. A sweet and kind soul that has a disaster happens circumference around her that follows her everywhere she goes. Sometimes claiming others in that disaster. Raleigh has more strength than one would this. Knowing the term walking disaster is light for what she is, she gets up each day and face it head on.

Ezra is one of those people you can’t judge a book by its cover. Well there are moments that made me dislike him, I did realize that once I got to know him he redeemed himself in many nice ways. You could call him a player, but I would say he was just a man that didn’t know what he wanted until it literally fell on his lap.

Ezra and Raleigh story is everything I have come to love and expect from Lani Lynn Vale. A good plot, distinctive character personalities, a good helping of humor and some super hot sexy moments. Hissy Fit is the first in Ms. Vale’s The Southern Gentleman series.  Without giving anything away, there are some sensitive moments with in the book, but are handled with elegance and style. Ms. Vale created an engaging story that is emotional, humorous and sexy. That’s definitely a winner in my book.

The day I lost my best friend was the day I realized that I’d been living in the past. I’ve tried to find a way to heal, to mend that break. Somehow, I came through it partially whole. But I know I couldn’t have done that without Aiden Connolly.

The problem is, he once loved my best friend. And now she’s gone, and I refuse to be in that shadow, or worse, a replacement for someone we both loved.

~~

I left them all behind.

My brother.

My family.

My best friend.

About BREAKING WITHOUT YOU

Available April 16, 2019

From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.

~~

I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she’d believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.

About SHOULDN’T HAVE YOU

Available May 21st, 2019

I’ve been many things in my life: daughter, friend, student, lover, wife…and now, widow. Getting past those labels and finding who I could be without them was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
Then I became friends with Brendon Connolly.
Every time I look at him, I see a past, I see a present, and I’m afraid if I look too hard, I’ll see a future.

~~~

I’ve known Harmony Wynham since before she got married. Before she lost everything. I didn’t know that one day she wouldn’t be just my friend but the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
Only I don’t think that can happen.
Not when every time she looks at me, she sees what she lost, and I can only see what I can’t overcome.
I love her, even though I shouldn’t. Somehow, we need to find a balance.
Because if we don’t, walking away will be the hardest thing I’ve ever done—even if it’s the only thing I should do.

Review: Mess Me Up by Lani Lynn Vale

When Rome Pierce moved to Bear Bottom, Texas, it was his intention to lay low. To not be seen. To find a way to heal his body and soul—as well as his son’s.

Nobody would know by looking at him that he used to play professional football. Not with the Bare Bottom MC cut covering his back, and definitely not with his friendly smile completely obliterated.

No longer is there charm in each smooth word that comes out of his mouth. What’s left is an angry, bitter, scared man that’s terrified one day he’s going to wake up and his entire world is going to be gone.

Nobody knows what drove him to leave the game he loved—nobody but her.

She’s the one person that has helped him make it through the dark days and even darker nights. She’s the bright and shining star in his pitch-black sky.

And he doesn’t even know her name.

He should be afraid that she knows things that not anyone—not even his best friend—knows.

Yet, with each encounter, he gives what little bit of his soul remains, and before he knows it only two people on this earth—one dying, and one too afraid to live—make his life worth living.

Until one day he has to choose—the love of his life, or the life he brought into this world.

Two impossible situations. One decision that would change him forever.

This is truly the perfect name for this book, because it did in fact Mess Me Up.

Rome is a man in a position that I hope I never have to be in. The anguish and hurt of this man go soul deep. When life gives a man something beautiful and precious it changes him. When that beauty gets taken it makes men like Rome last st in their own world. Everything about this man made me swoon. I even forgave him for his transgressions because sometimes people have to deal with thing in their own way. In their own time.

Izzy is an angel with attitude. The women is strong, straight up and caring is an understatement. A woman who has suffered yet holds her head very high. Determined, hardworking and selfless in so many way. The way Izzy gives herself is unique and a thing of beauty. She knows heartache yet continues to look for the good.

Lani Lynn Vale has me reading through tears with Mess Me Up. Emotional is a complete understatement when it comes to this book. It’s deep and intimate. It’s heartbreaking and healing. It’s so much more than any words I’m able to try to describe. I have read many books by Ms. Vale but none have affected me the way Mess Me Up did. If you’re an emotional sap like me, several parts of this book will be very tough to get through. However if you push on just as I did you will be amazed at the beauty that is contained within this book.

Lani Lynn Vale is a USA Today Bestselling Author of over thirty titles. She is married with three children, two dogs, two cats, a donkey, and a couple (a couple also meaning over twenty) chickens.

When she’s not writing, you can find her curled up in her favorite chair reading.

Lani is married with three children and lives in the Great State of Texas.

Powerful vampire, Quintus Tullius, returns to New Orleans after a demon attacks. Elusive and lethal, he conceals his true powers from all others, wielding his strength over the centuries as he sees fit. When he’s healed by an attractive stranger, he quickly realizes her altruistic actions are driven by more than kindness, and she is not who she appears to be. Unsure if he can trust the dangerous beauty, he swears to protect her, captivated by the one creature he’d never expected to flame his desire.

Gabriella Savoie has been on the run since she was thirteen years old. Determined to survive, she practices a unique blend of magick to hide from the coven who seeks her death. Desperate, she leads a treacherous existence in underground clubs, selling her mystical blood to vampires to survive. Drawn to the one person who can save her, she spirals into an erotic journey, exploring her hidden fantasies within the arms of the seductive vampire.

From Louisiana to New York, their sensual and perilous adventure leads them to discover ancient secrets, searching for the artifact that will set her beast free. As Gabriella accepts her fate, will she sacrifice her magick to be with the vampire who is her true mate? Will Quintus trust her and reveal his powers, acknowledging the unexpected bond to a woman who isn’t human? And will he be able to save her, thwarting the impending evil that descends on Big Easy?

I have been waiting for Quintus’ story from the moment he appeared on the page. Kym Grosso knocked my sock off with overwhelming and intimate seduction that is Quintus.

Quintus is one of the oldest and most powerful vampires walking. Commanding, feared and beyond sexy. We find Quintus in a bad way as his story begins. And that is truly the beginning many things that kept me me one the edge of my seat as the story unfolded.

Gabriella is unique and hunted. A hybrid with the power to save a vampire. Running most of her, always looking over her shoulder. Putting herself between a rock and a hard place, trusting that saving a feared vampire will in turn save herself.

OMG this book! Kym Grosso gives readers an adventure and then some with Quintus. Action, some drama and a whole lots of hotness. From the moment Quintus and Gabby met (which is the beginning of the book, lol) there is a level of intimacy that continues through the story. The meeting of Gabby and Quintus was meant to be one thing and turned into something neither one could have seen come. They together prove that trust is earned not given but fate is something they can’t control. Kym Grosso has once again give me a fantastic book to get lost in.

Cover Reveal: IT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME By: Kylie Scott

We are thrilled to bring you the cover for the next standalone from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Kylie Scott.

IT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME will release on AUGUST 7th!

“Addictive like all Kylie Scott books, you’ll swoon, laugh, ache, put your life on hold, and compulsively read until the wee hours of the night—only to reread the whole thing the next morning. Perfection!” – Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete was left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.

Seven years later, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back those old feelings.

Sometimes first loves are the truest.
