Release Day Promo: Bad for You by J Daniels

"If you're a fan of Kristen Ashley, then you will love this book." -Aestas Book Blog on Four Letter Word

He didn't want to be bad. He just didn't have a choice...
Shayla Perkins isn't the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean "Stitch" Molina. So when he gives her the world's biggest rejection, that's it--she's done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn't mean he's interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he's paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected--especially from a man like Sean. He's tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give each other what they want most...is to let each other go?

"The perfect mix of funny, hot and heartwarming. I enjoyed it immensely!" --Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author, on Four Letter Word

Stacking the Shelves (276)

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where bloggers share what books they got throughout the week!

From Publishers

Berkley sent me a few books and I am so excited about them! I love both Chanel Cleeton and Jaci Burton, so I can't wait to read these both! 

From Amazon

I love Charleigh Rose and thought it was about time I got myself the paperback of Bad Habit. I'm also trying to stock up for Apollycon in March, so I got Eye Candy! I think all (or most) of the authors who contributed to this book are going to be there, so I'm excited to read this and then get it signed! 

From Thriftbooks

Alice Clayton will be at Apollycon too and I noticed I didn't own Wallbanger. I read this book almost five years ago and LOVED it, so I had to buy myself a copy! 

That's it for me! What did you all add to your shelves this week?

Blog Tour + Review: Keep Her Safe by KA Tucker

Keep Her Safe
by KA Tucker
Release Date: January 23, 2018
Source: Publisher
Noah Marshall has known a privileged and comfortable life thanks to his mother, the highly decorated chief of the Austin Police Department. But all that changes the night she reveals a skeleton that's been rattling in her closet for years, and succumbs to the guilt of destroying an innocent family's life. Reeling with grief, Noah is forced to carry the burden of this shocking secret.

Gracie Richards wasn't born in a trailer park, but after fourteen years of learning how to survive in The Hollow, it's all she knows anymore. At least here people don't care that her dad was a corrupt Austin cop, murdered in a drug deal gone wrong. Here, she and her mother are just another family struggling to survive...until a man who clearly doesn't belong shows up on her doorstep.

Despite their differences, Noah and Gracie are searching for answers to the same questions, and together, they set out to uncover the truth about the Austin Police Department's dark and messy past. But the scandal that emerges is bigger than they bargained for, and goes far higher up than they ever imagined.

Complex, gritty, sexy, and thrilling, Keep Her Safe solidifies K.A. Tucker's reputation as one of today's most talented new voices in romantic suspense.

I am a huge fan of KA Tucker, but I really love her contemporary romances. I don't ever read novels that are primarily suspense or mystery, but I do love a good suspense movie or TV show. So when I had the opportunity to read this book, I couldn't say no. 

Noah Marshall has lived an ordinary, privileged life with his police chief mom. But when his mom reveals something that happened in the past that has been weighing on her all of these years, Noah is shocked and finds himself driving to Arizona to set things right. There, he finds Gracie, the little girl from his past who moved away after tragedy and lies ruined her family. Gracie has lived in a trailer park for the past 14 years, watching her mom deteriorate more and more to drugs. When this strange Texan stumbles into her life bringing up secrets revolving around her father's death, Gracie is determined to redeem her father and find out the truth of what happened all those years ago. 

Going into this one, I was immediately drawn into the story thanks to the flashbacks we got of Noah's mom and Gracie's dad. I loved seeing first-hand glimpses into the past while we followed Gracie and Noah in the present trying to unravel this mystery. Since Gracie and Noah were so young when everything happened so many years ago, they really didn't know anything, so they were discovering new facts and information right along with us, the readers, which I really enjoyed. I was shocked when they were shocked and I was angry when they were angry. Also, it was so fun watching them grow closer and experience a little bit of romance, which I always love. 

While I was reading this book, I thought it was definitely a four star read as the pacing was steady and the storyline was interesting enough. BUT. When we got to the end, this turned into a five star read. My jaw was on the floor and I definitely didn't see any of that coming. KA Tucker really created a suspenseful mystery that had me furiously turning the pages until I got to the end. 

Overall, this was such a hit from KA Tucker. I loved everything about this book and she delivered a suspense that definitely kept me on my toes.

K.A. Tucker writes captivating stories with an edge. Her books have been featured in national publications including USA TODAY, The Globe and Mail, Suspense Magazine, and Publishers Weekly. She currently resides in a quaint town outside Toronto with her husband and two beautiful girls.

Cover Reveal: Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward

We are thrilled to bring you the cover from New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward. Gentleman Nine releases on February 19th!

Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs
Cover Model: Lucas Garcez
Cover Photography: Sven Jacobsen

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

Growing up, the three of us were friends.
He was the nerd.
I was the playboy.
She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.
He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.
Amber never knew how I felt.
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.
When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.
One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.
Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.
Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.
She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. 
When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

**No Amazon e-book preorder. Will go live on/around release day **

Book Review: The Studying Hours by Sara Ney

The Studying Hours (How to Date a Douchebag #1)
by Sarah Ney
Release Date: September 13, 2016
Source: Amazon
No doubt about it, Sebastian ‘Oz’ Osborne is the university’s most celebrated student athlete—and possibly the biggest douchebag. A walking, talking cliché, he has a filthy mouth, a fantastic body, and doesn’t give a sh*t about what you or anyone else thinks.
Make no mistake, Jameson Clarke may be the university’s most diligent student—but she is no prude. Spending most of her time in the hallowed halls of the library, James is wary of pervs, jocks, and douchebags—and Oz Osborne is all three.

She’s smart, sarcastic—and not what he expected.

He wants to be friends.
He wants to spend time with her.
He wants to drive her crazy.

He wants…


I have seen this series all over Instagram, but I really had no idea what it was about. When I saw that the first two ebooks were on sale, I decided to one-click both of them and see how they turned out. 

Sebastian "Oz" Osbourne is a douchebag. As big man on campus and a Division 1 wrestler, Oz pretty much gets anything, and any girl, he wants. Jameson Clarke doesn't need any distractions. She has to study for her grades and she's serious about college, unlike the annoying jocks who distract her at the library. When Oz won't leave her alone with his arrogant personality and crass language, James tries to ignore him. But Oz is persistent and James finds herself actually enjoying his company while Oz finds himself liking the stuck-up girl from the library. 

In the beginning, I had a good feeling about this book. I love a cocky, arrogant jock who is intrigued by the girl who isn't impressed by his reputation. Oz is so well known on campus that he's shocked when James has no idea who he is. She is so different from any girl he's been with and he's intrigued by the girl who looks so buttoned up but who has a wild side of her own. I really liked Oz and how he changed throughout the novel and was so surprised by how much he actually like being around James. 

James, on the other hand, is still a mystery to me. We got that she worked hard and took school seriously, but we never really learned that much about her past. At one point, Oz was talking about what he had learned about James and we were never told those things. I didn't know her past, especially with dating, and I really missed that link to her as a character. I did love how she learned to find Oz's personality endearing and didn't really know what to do about her new feelings. 

Overall, this was a great college romance with a cocky athlete and a girl that was much more intriguing than she looked. Fans of The Hook Up and The Deal are going to find their next favorite college sports romance with the How to Date a Douchebag series!
