Release Blitz, Book Review, Giveaway | Who I Am With You by Melody Anne


Title: Who I Am With You
Series: Unexpected Heroes #2
Author: Melody Anne
Publisher: Pocket Star
Publication Date: April 27, 2015

A spinoff of Melody Anne’s New York Times bestselling Billionaire Bachelors series, this entrancing e-novella features motocross racer Taylor Winchester and little sister to Hawk, the hero of “Safe in His Arms” from the romance anthology Baby, It’s Cold Outside.

As a motocross rider, Taylor Winchester has made a career out of throwing herself headfirst into danger, as fiercely as any of the guys racing against her. But after a brutal crash, she takes a little forced R&R while her injuries heal. Her mom wishes she’d settle down, find love, maybe have a baby or two…but all Taylor wants is to get back on her bike.

She heads to her brother Hawk’s cabin to get a little peace and quiet—but is shocked to discover she’s not the only inhabitant. Ex-military man Travis, her high school crush, has also borrowed the cabin, and the two of them are each too stubborn to let the other one win. Nothing left to do but share the cabin…which quickly leads to sharing a bed! As Taylor and Travis discover that the heat between them is far more than a fling, they both struggle with letting go of control. But if they learn to give a little, what they could win is worth more than any prize...

A brutal crash caused Taylor Winchester to take a break from her motocross career. It forced her to stay with her parents as she recuperates from her injuries. Her mother wanted nothing but for her to quit the sports she loves much, settle down, find true love and have a family. Although the only thing that Taylor wanted was to get better so that she can ride back in her bike.

When she finally convinced her mother that she wanted to live in her brother Hawk’s Cabin for some peace and quiet, she didn’t expect an old flame to be there as well. Ex-military man Travis, her high school crush and her brother’s best friend is there as well. The past wouldn’t let her forgive him. After he rejects her twice, leaving her high and dry and calling what happened to them a mistake. He should leave the cabin and leave her alone.

But Travis would not. It wasn’t the right time then, now however, given this second chance, he wouldn’t let her go. He stood his ground, not leaving the cabin. Trying to show her that he’s there to stay, and he’d do anything to get her back into his bed.

Will she be able to resist him?

Both of them are stubborn, it’s a battle of will and wits – who will win? I like Taylor’s will to go back to the bike, but I hated the stubbornness that goes along with it. The danger that the sport poses outweighs the pros, and she should have realized that. As for Travis, he did something awful back then, and if I were Taylor I’d be quite careful before I succumb to his charms once again. But he’s back, and he’s showing her he was in for the long run.  

I always love short and sweet reads that I can finish in an hour or two. Coupled with my favorite plot: a second chance with love makes this one a perfect read.

Book Review | Last To Know by Micalea Smeltzer


He was just a boy.
And I was just a girl.
But if that’s all there was to the story it wouldn’t be very interesting, would it?

Up and coming band Willow Creek is back in their hometown for the summer. For the drummer, Maddox Wade, this summer was meant for writing music and playing gigs.

Falling in love was not part of the plan.

One look at Emma Burke and those plans cease to matter.

Emma is quiet and guarded. She’s still hurt from her father walking out two years ago. She doesn’t want to trust Maddox, but with his dark hair, smoldering good looks, and infectious smile he’s impossible to resist.

Together Maddox and Emma embark on an unforgettable summer of adventures and first love.

Everything is perfect…or so Emma thinks.

There are things she doesn’t know, and when she finds out the truth it might shatter everything she’s built with Maddox.

No one said love was easy, and for Maddox and Emma it just might be impossible.

This is a Young Adult book. The following books in the series will be New Adult

Jack Dalton was charismatic.

Johnny Outlaw was irresistible.

Two sides of the same man, passionate about two things—music and Holliday Hughes. With her intoxicating mix of strength and vulnerability, confidence and sex appeal, he couldn’t get enough of her.

Together, love was a storm of chaos and calm. When fame became a force to be reckoned with, could their love hold them together or would their notoriety tear them apart?

S.L. SCOTT.jpgNew York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

New York Times and USA Bestselling Author, S. L. Scott, was always interested in the arts. She grew up painting, writing poetry and short stories, and wiling her days away lost in a good book and the movies.

With a degree in Journalism, she continued her love of the written word by reading American authors like Salinger and Fitzgerald. She was intrigued by their flawed characters living in picture perfect worlds, but could still debate that the worlds those characters lived in were actually the flawed ones. This dynamic of leaving the reader invested in the words, inspired Scott to start writing with emotion while interjecting an underlying passion into her own stories.

Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. She dreams of seeing one of her own books made into a movie one day as well as returning to Europe. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.

Book Review | BAIT by M. Mabie


He was trouble from the start, but I couldn't resist.
She was the best kind of trouble. The kind that was so wrong, it felt right.

I’ve tried and failed to stay away from him.
I’ve done everything in my power to make her mine and keep her.

He’s almost impossible to say no to.
She never tells me yes.

We’re always fighting.
When we’re not fighting, we’re… well… making up.

He makes me laugh so hard.
I miss her laugh the most.

I'm a liar.
She knows the truth, but won’t admit it.

Sometimes, I wish I'd never met him.
I wish we could meet all over again. I'd do better.

His girlfriend knows.
The guy she’s with is a fool.

I’ll never love anyone like I love him.
She doesn’t love me enough to choose us.

It was the wrong place.
It was the wrong time.

It should have been him.
It will always be her.

This book contains adult situations and is recommended for adult readers.

They were trouble waiting to happen, I knew it, everyone that surrounds them knew it. I think they were the only one who were clueless of the situation. Both of them were too busy living inside their bubbles to care about anything else in the world.

We have this old adage in our country: masarap ang bawal, which translates to: forbidden acts are more satisfying (or the like). You’d be hooked, until such time truth will slap you right in the face and you’d be caught red handed.

I’m uncomfortable with the plot, and even though I love both Casey and Blake, I need to black out that thought that Blake was committed to a clueless man. Someone who was boring, but was good to her. I guess it would have been okay if Grant was cheating or if he was an a**, but no.

She made some decisions that I hated, perhaps out of pressure, out of uncertainty, she wanted something that Casey could not give her. She did some things, made some decisions that was hard for me to swallow, and even she regretted it almost immediately.

WHAT THE F*** ARE YOU DOING? – sums up my sentiment for this book. Putting that one itty-bitty fact aside – these two are clearly meant for each other. They were happy, and they are certainly at their best when they are together. Now, if only one of them were brave enough to stand up and fight for it.

The events had me look forward for the second book, crossing my fingers, hoping this time both of them would be wiser, would be braver and would fight for their feelings, because, what they have may be forbidden, but it was certainly the most honest, unadulterated emotion in the world, and despite the initial uncomfortability they brought to my *coughs* delicate senses, I wished them the best.

ARC Review | A View From Forever by Charles Sheehan-Miles


Dylan Paris is a working class kid from Atlanta. A former high school dropout who is trying to clean up his act, Dylan is stunned to be selected for a six-week foreign exchange program to Israel.

Alex Thompson is the daughter of a wealthy US Ambassador. Several weeks overseas with an exchange program is just what she needs to get out from under her over-controlling parents.

They only have five weeks before they go back to their homes.

They have completely different lives.

The last thing either of them want or need is to fall in love.
