If We Fall: Book One – Release Day August 30

We fell in love. Then our world fell apart. 

I wished so hard for Cole Danforth. And one day, he came true. He was my first boyfriend, my first lover, my first and only love. He should also have been my last. 

But in a split-second, we were ripped apart, our lives broken, my heart shattered. After ten years, I've returned to my hometown, the place of my greatest joy and darkest pain. 

Cole is still here, but the beautiful boy I'd loved is gone. Now he's a ruthless, unforgiving man determined to feed both my resentment and my lust. 

Then our torturous past encroaches again, trapping us in a violent storm. 

But this time, there is no escape.




BOOK REVIEW

5/5

This is something that you would want to read. It’s amazingly written, something that will touch and break your hearts, and it’s just the first book. It will make you wonder, how much more can you take for the next one?

Cole and Josie have been so in love then, but a tragedy separated them. Ten years later, Josie comes back to their small town and their paths once again crossed. But Cole was no longer the boy she fell in love with. Instead, he was a hardened, ruthless man. Fate will always find a way to get back two people that are meant to be together. No matter how much Cole tried to stay away from Josie, she seemed to be everywhere he is. Past feelings, happy and painful memories resurfaced.

Josie tries to break the walls that surrounds the present Cole. She could not believe that there wasn’t an iota of the Old Cole that remains in there. She wanted that back. And despite the fact that Cole would try his best to scare her away, she didn’t falter. Day by day, Cole’s wall crumble inch by inch, and I without a doubt believed that it wouldn’t take so much time before they’re back in each others arms.

I love the air of mystery with regards to the death of Josie’s family years ago. The one that drove them apart. It will keep you asking questions, will keep you guessing - especially with Josie’s flashbacks. Nina Lane allows her readers to get into Cole and Josie’s past - the ones that made them live, the ones that hunted them.

Just like any Nina Lane book - you’d just fall in love over this one. If We Fall is simply an epic start of a duet - one that will leave you breathless with your jaw dropping in anticipation of what’s next.


If We Fly: Book Two – Sept 13

EXCERPT
“Sir?” The security guard phones in from downstairs. “There’s a woman here insisting she needs to speak with you.”
“Name?”
“Josephine Mays.”
“Let her in.”
I turn off the intercom and unlock my office door. A few minutes pass before the door flies open. Josie barges in, her hands fisted and an angry light in her eyes.
“You are an asshole,” she snaps.
“I’ve been told.”
“How dare you pull that kind of stunt?”
“It’s the truth.”
“And we both know damned well you brought it up only because I’m involved.” She tosses her backpack and art portfolio onto a chair. She’s trembling with anger. “I don’t care what you think about me, but bringing the people of this town into our personal shit is low, even for you.”
My shoulders tense. “Even for me? What do you know about me?”
“Nothing anymore.” She slams her hands to her hips, her features twisting. “But I used to know everything about you. Do you remember that? Then you walked out on me right when I needed you the most, proving you were never the man I thought you were. Now I find out that you run this company like a dictator, you’re crushing independent businesses and putting people out of work, and you’re publicly trying to stop me from creating a mural that’s intended for both this town and my parents. What the hell happened to you?”
You happened to me.”
The words fly out of my mouth before I can stop them. The pencil I’m holding breaks in two with the force of my grip.
Josie steps back, her eyes widening. Her dark hair is windblown, her cheeks flushed, her chest heaving under her old army jacket. I’d once had the right to comb her hair back from her forehead, slide my palm over her neck before edging my fingers into her V-necked T-shirt...
Anger crushes my chest. I shove away from my desk and stride toward her. Fear flashes in her green eyes, which pisses me off even more. When the fuck was she ever afraid of me?
I grab the lapels of her jacket, yanking her closer. Our lower bodies collide. She gasps, a little catching noise in the back of her throat that used to get me hot in a second.
It still does. My blood starts to boil. She tilts her head back, her eyes flashing. I lower my head to look at her, fighting to ignore her scent—goddamned summer leaves and cherry candy.
“I once would have done anything for you.” The words grate roughly from my throat. “And then I failed you in the worst possible way. I failed you, I failed Teddy, and I failed your parents.”
She stares at me, her eyes widening. “Cole, I—”
“When you left, I hoped with everything I was that you’d have a chance at a normal life.” I pull her closer, anger warring with the undeniable flare of lust. “That you could be happy again if you weren’t constantly surrounded by reminders of everything you lost. Everything I took from you.”
“Goddamn you, Cole Danforth.” Fire flames over her expression. She plants her hands on my chest and shoves herself away. “The only thing you took from me was you.

Cover Reveal | Keeping Him by Kennedy Fox (@KennedyFoxBooks)

KEEPING HIM
BISHOP BROTHERS Book 4
By Kennedy Fox
Release Day: Sept 20


Jackson Bishop is your typical playboy.

Unpredictable, charming, and overly confident.

Growing up in Texas, the ranch life is all he’s ever known. Horses and late night partying are his lifestyles, and all the local girls know it too. Riding lessons aren’t the only things taught at the stables, and he makes sure clients never leave unsatisfied. Everyone knows Jackson’s a wild card, but not everything is as it seems. He may be a womanizer on the surface, but he’s hiding deep feelings about the one who’s had his heart since he was a teen. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as roping her in and claiming her as his.

Kiera Young is well-known for her sassy nature and outgoing personality. Though she’s one of the best horse trainers in the area, she’s never been able to tame her best friend and the man she’s secretly loved since she was fifteen—Jackson Bishop. She’s waited years for him to confess his true feelings but as time goes on, she decides she’s done waiting. Kiera finally meets a man who promises to give her the world, and when he pops the question, she says yes—knowing they’re both ready to settle down and start a family.

Even if her heart beats for another man.

Jackson’s certain he’s lost Kiera for good and has no one to blame but himself. However, on the day of her wedding, he can’t bring himself to watch the woman he loves walk down the aisle to someone else. Kiera’s already having second thoughts and knows she can’t get married without his support. It’s not until she’s at the altar that she realizes she can’t let Jackson go and will do whatever it takes to keep him—even if it means running out on her own wedding.

#NewRelease + #BookReview | Hold You Close by Melanie Harlow & Corinne Michaels



40550201


From NYT Bestseller Corinne Michaels & USA Today Bestseller Melanie Harlow, comes a second chance standalone romance.

Ian Chase broke my heart at seventeen, and I’ve spent the last eighteen years hating him for it.

He makes it easy, with his smart mouth and playboy lifestyle—which I unfortunately have to observe since he lives behind me. Every time I see him climbing out of his pool, practically naked and unreasonably sexy, my blood boils.

I’ve always loved to loathe him.

I never planned to need him.

*** 

London Parish is my little sister’s best friend, not that it stopped me from falling for her.

Our history is complicated. The only thing we have in common is being godparents to my sister’s three adorable kids—until our lives are changed in one tragic moment. 

Now we’re trying to raise the children we love, mourn an unthinkable loss, and fight an undeniable attraction.

My life is already upside-down, and the last thing I need is for old feelings to resurface. 

Because I’ll never be able to keep her, no matter how hard I try to hold her close



Book Review

4.5/5

London Parish and Ian Chase can't be in the same room together. They fight like cats and dogs. It didn't matter that London is Ian's sister best friend. No. They just can't stand each other. But that was not always the case. Because London had been in love with Ian in the past, and Ian chose to break her heart. 

But when a tragedy strike and they were both left with three amazing kids and no idea what to do with them, they had to present a united front and try to be their for them. Their lives just turned upside down, not just because of the new responsibility, but the fact that they need to work together. All of the time. Well, most of it anyway.

She didn't plan of risking her heart once again. But spending time with Ian and the kids - she just couldn't help it. Will London give it another chance? Or will she forever hide in her hate? 

What do I expect? This book is co-written by authors who are known to give you all those emotions and break your hearts. This one makes no difference. I am completely in love with this book, and every characters in it. Ian might be a jerk, but he did things for a reason. Reason that he thought was for the best. London - I like her determination to do anything, including hating Ian. But when it comes to the kids - they always come first. I can't blame her for protecting her heart as he did a number on her. Although, I love the fact that she gave him a chance again. The kids - omg. They are just so adorable. I love Chris' sensitivity, Morgan's old soul - and Ruby, she's a sweetheart.

But probably the thing I love most about this book are the letters Sabrina have for both. It was funny, but you can't probably help but shed a few tears. 

This book is a combination of cuteness, steam, romance, feels, and a whole lot of entertaining banter between our main characters.
