Something Just Like ThisSomething Just Like This
By Tracy Krimmer
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Age category: Adult
Release Date: February 14, 2018

Blurb:
Love? Second chances? That crap is for romantics, not realists like Juliette. She has a bad attitude about love and an even worse one when it comes to second chances. And she may dress like an elf for a few weeks out of the year, but that doesn’t mean she loves Christmas.

Stability? Purpose? Landon is surfing a pleasant wave of both until he’s fired. Devastating news from his sister certainly doesn’t help. At least he has the holidays to look forward to.

When Landon shows up at the mall and Juliette prevents a disaster, he can’t stop thinking about that sweet elf. Juliette doesn’t believe in the spirit of Christmas, but she can’t help but wonder why Landon was in her line that day. Could Landon deserve one of those second chances she’s so unwilling to give?

You can find Something Just Like This on Goodreads

You can pre-order Something Just Like This on Amazon for only $2.99 through February 15.
It will be available in Kindle Unlimited after release day.

Excerpt Something Just Like This by Tracy Krimmer

“Don’t be a Grinch!”
“Huh?” I lift my gaze and my best friend and co-worker Carly stands in the doorway, the smile so bright on her face it almost blinds me. “What do you mean don’t be a Grinch?”
“Oh, you know,” she says as she makes her way into the room, planting herself in my chair. “Like you are every holiday season.”
“I’m not a Grinch.” Maybe I am. I try my best not to show it. It’s possible I don’t have a convincing poker face. Poker was never my game, anyway.
“You most certainly are. Every Christmas party you sulk at the table drinking gin and tonic and refuse to join in on anything. This year, you are in. You’ll be the life of the party.”
“Over my dead body.”
“Shit, Jules, your stiff body would be a better time than you are alive at these functions.”
She’s right, and I know it. Why is she always right? I want to take offense but it’s no secret I’m not Christmas’s biggest fan. I may be the only elf working at the mall that despises it. The elf job isn’t for me, though. I do it for others. That’s festive, isn’t it? Isn’t Christmas about giving? I do plenty of that.
“Leave me alone. And why are you so bubbly? Did you drink a bottle of bubble bath or something?” I grab the container of pens, staples, and paperclips out of the box and place them on the desk. This is much easier to deal with than the picture of my family with our fake smiles.
“Oh, I don’t know.”
She dots her face with her fingertips, moving them around from one side to the other. Why is she acting so weird? “Wait.” I stop when I see it. “Are you wearing an engagement ring?”
She squeals and pops out of the chair, rushing over to show me. Her hand misses smacking me in the face as she shows off her princess cut ring, sparkles and all. “Pretty.”
“Pretty? Are you kidding me right now, Jules? This ring is gorgeous and fit for the fairest princess in the land.”
“Which is you, I assume.”
“What crawled into your pants this morning? Or should I ask who didn’t? Another bad date, huh?”
I shrug, not in the mood to discuss my date with Romeo. No joke. My cousin Dana claimed she found the perfect guy for me, and I said yes to a blind date. His name was Romy, like Mira Sorvino in that movie Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion. I’d only ever heard the name Romy from that movie. It turned out he used Romy as a nickname for Romeo. Yeah. Dana set me up with a Romeo because of course we’d be Romeo and Juliette. Barf. I don’t even spell my name like the Shakespearean character, and the last thing I would ever do is poison myself over a man. Dana had her fun. I did not. She’s never setting me up again.
“Let’s say I got home very early, watched an entire movie, and was asleep by ten.”
“Ouch. That is a bad date.”

Review/ Wheeler

Wheeler
Sara Butler Zalesky
Publication date: July 4th 2016
Genres: Adult, Romance, Sports, Suspense

Known as the Ice Queen of the peloton, pro cyclist Loren Mackenzie rarely shows emotion in the heat of competition; she leads her team with quiet strength and determination. But her successes have not come without suffering, and her tragic past is hidden inside tarnished armor.

While out on a training ride with her cycling team near Enfield, England, a chance meeting quickly develops into an unexpected whirlwind romance. But a relationship with an A-list celebrity brings with it the microscope of tabloid-media attention, which expose jealousy and rivalry that threaten to undermine Loren’s leadership of her team.

The new romance also reveals a dangerous obsession, culminating in a terrifying confrontation with someone from Loren’s past. Her injuries not only put her chances at the World Championship in jeopardy but also bring forth memories of a life she had long buried – for good reason.

Can Loren open her heart to the love she has held at a distance, or will her fear ultimately defeat her?

The follow up novel in the Wheeler series is coming soon.

Before beginning my review I just quickly have to thank Xpresso Book Tours for sending me a copy of the book to read and for allowing me to be a part of this book tour.

As a book blogger you tend to want to step outside your normal reading zone every now and then just to read something new and this year I made it a point that I really want to do more of this because I was noticing that I read a lot of the same genre and tend to find that after a while it just all sounds the same. The same story but just by a different author, if that makes sense?

Wheeler was definitely outside what I normal read and I have to say that I enjoyed it this. Its got a little bit of romance and suspense which I think make the book a great read. Its a roller coaster of emotions of highs and lows and I think that is what makes the book a great read. You could tell that this was a passion of Sara’s because she filled you in without over whelming you.

Our main character is Loren and she is a professional cyclist who competes and has earned the nick name Ice Queen because when she competes she shows no emotion what so ever. I have to admit that I don’t know anything about being a professional cyclist and I don’t watch the races so basically I know nothing about this sport but Sara does a fantastic job in bridging the gap so you can understand what is going on.

Loren’s life might seem like its perfect but only Loren knows that things don’t appear as they seem. Loren has a dark past and has endured horrific things but she uses that pain and suffering as her motivation to be the best she can be.

This is where the love interest comes in and that’s in the form of Graham who is a famous actor. At first Loren is weary of accepting his help but figures she has no other choice. You could tell the two hit it off but both walk away without giving each other their numbers. Graham not willing to accept his mistakes remembers Loren’s jersey logo and enlists the help of his agent to track her down and I thought that this was sweet that he just didn’t let this chance encounter pass him by that he actually went out of his way to track her down and so begins their relationship. But can this relationship stand the test of time? What will Loren do when someone else is jealous of this new budding romance?

As the story progresses Loren ends up in a horrific accident and is rushed to the hospital and you know that this is where things start to go wrong and where you are rooting for Loren. Loren is determined to not let anything stand in her way of competing even though she really should be resting and taking it easy.

Enter Loren’s former ex-boyfriend, Felix who is still basically obsessed with her and he will do anything to make her his again. How far will he go?

I am curious to read the follow up to see where they will go with it.

Author Bio:

Sara was born in the wee hours of a November night in New York City. When her family moved to a small borough in northwestern New Jersey, she had little choice but to move as well. Self-sufficiency is a tough thing for a toddler.

The dichotomy of being the middle child of three, but the only girl, was difficult, as typically no one really pays attention to a middle child. Mostly, Sara spent her time creating fanciful stories in her head when she should have been focused on other things, an issue that continues to this day.

Most of these stories have never been shared, let alone completed. This all changed in the spring of 2015, when Sara was encouraged by a friend to expand upon a short story she had accidentally emailed to him. The result is ‘Wheeler’, a romantic, women’s fiction/sport novel, which combines the author’s romantic inclinations and her passion for cycling.

Sara currently resides in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA, with her loving husband and their son. She is a paralegal for a boutique law firm in Chester County, Pa, an avid road cyclist and indoor cycling instructor at a national chain.

Follow the author’s blog at sarabutlerzalesky.wordpress.com or on Twitter @sarazalesky. She does a little dance every time someone ‘follows’ her on Twitter. Really.

Cover Reveal/ Right Kiss. Wrong Guy

 

Welcome to the Cover Reveal for

Right Kiss. Wrong Guy. (Offsides #2)
by Natalie Decker

presented by Swoon Romance!

Be on the lookout for this upcoming title!

 

What do you think of the cover?

 

 

You’d think a girl with the most romantic name in the world would have her pick of boyfriends.

But Valentine’s Day sucks when you’re single. Just ask Juliet Valentine, whose last name happens to also be the name of the most dreaded made-up holiday ever.

A romantic at heart, this year is especially hard on Juliet. Her sister, Layla, is in a new relationship, her mom’s match-making business is doing great, and her school’s new fundraiser is “Love-Grams.”

Juliet’s miserable, a little jealous, and lonely.

Quarterback Jared Black is the most popular guy in school. A star athlete, Jared tops the most-eligible bachelor list year after year. But to Juliet Valentine, he’s all but invisible. She isn’t impressed.

Jared’s never had to work hard to get the attention of a girl before. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and he’s determined to ask Juliet out. After all, if Tyler can win over Layla, Jared ought to have a shot with Layla’s sister.

Unlike Tyler and Layla, charm, flattery and good looks won’t work on Juliet. So with the V-Day dance coming up, Jared uses the school’s Love-Grams to let Juliet know how he feels. Should be simple enough, right?

Wrong. Each attempt ends up either in the trash or thrown in someone’s face. Juliet won’t play his game.

Now, without a date to the dance Jared realizes it’s going to take a Hail Mary to win the girl of his dreams.

Right Kiss. Wrong Guy. (Offsides #2)

Review/ Winter Stroll

Review/ Winter StrollWinter Stroll (Winter #2) by Elin Hilderbrand
Published by Little, Brown and Company on October 13th 2015
Pages: 263
Goodreads


"Happy Holidays 2015! It has been a rough year for the Quinns, but I would like to start by saying thank you for all of the well wishes and positive missives sent our way."

Another Christmas on Nantucket finds Winter Street Inn owner Kelley Quinn reflecting on the past year as he writes a holiday letter to friends and family. Though the year has had its share of misfortune and worry, the Quinns have much to celebrate. Kelley, now single, at least is on better terms with his first wife Margaret, who is using her celebrity to lure customers to the inn in record numbers. Their son Kevin has a beautiful new baby, Genevieve, with the Inn's French housekeeper, Isabelle; and their daughter, Ava, is finally dating a nice guy--her devoted colleague, Scott.
Now the Quinns are looking forward to celebrating Genevieve's baptism, welcoming Isabelle to the family, and enjoying the cheer of Nantucket's traditional Christmas Stroll. But just when a peaceful family gathering seems within reach, Kelley's estranged second wife, Mitzi, shows up on the island after souring on her relationship with the inn's former Santa Claus. Soon Kelley isn't the only Quinn entertaining a surprise guest from Christmases past as lovers old and new gather beneath the mistletoe. With jealousy, passion, and eggnog consumption at an all-time high, it's going to take a whole lot more than a Christmas miracle to get the Quinns--and the inn--through the holidays intact.

This is the second book in the Winter series by Elin Hilderbrand.

Winter Stroll picks up a year after where Winter Street left off. I am happy that I was able to pick up the books one of the other so that it felt like I was reading just one book if that makes sense?

Another holiday season is upon the Quinn family. Like the previous book its told within a few days and the chapters are alternated between the Quinn family like the previous one. Everyone basically fills in the blanks to what has happened in the previous year while still telling what is going on in the present day.

Just like the previous book it follows the same family drama. Kelly is still struggling with the break up of his marriage to Mitzi. His oldest son, Patrick is facing possibly going to jail. His second son, Kevin is struggling with dealing with his feelings from his first marriage that failed and doesn’t want to go down that same path with Isabelle. His daughter, Ava is dealing with the fact her boyfriend decided he would rather spend be alone and she has no idea where he is as he is not in contact with her. Finally Bart is still missing in action and no one knows where he is.

There is so much more but I am going to stop since this is the second book in the series.

This was another super quick read and I read it over the course of two nights. Like the previous book it does end abruptly and since I know there is a book three I wasn’t left hanging for too long. I do look forward to continuing with the next book in the series.

 

Review/ Winter Street

Review/ Winter StreetWinter Street by Elin Hilderbrand
Published by Little, Brown and Company on October 14th 2014
Pages: 352
Goodreads

In bestseller Elin Hilderbrand's first Christmas novel, a family gathers on Nantucket for a holiday filled with surprises.
Kelley Quinn is the owner of Nantucket's Winter Street Inn and the proud father of four, all of them grown and living in varying states of disarray. Patrick, the eldest, is a hedge fund manager with a guilty conscience. Kevin, a bartender, is secretly sleeping with a French housekeeper named Isabelle. Ava, a school teacher, is finally dating the perfect guy but can't get him to commit. And Bart, the youngest and only child of Kelley's second marriage to Mitzi, has recently shocked everyone by joining the Marines.
As Christmas approaches, Kelley is looking forward to getting the family together for some quality time at the inn. But when he walks in on Mitzi kissing Santa Claus (or the guy who's playing Santa at the inn's annual party), utter chaos descends. With the three older children each reeling in their own dramas and Bart unreachable in Afghanistan, it might be up to Kelley's ex-wife, nightly news anchor Margaret Quinn, to save Christmas at the Winter Street Inn.
Before the mulled cider is gone, the delightfully dysfunctional Quinn family will survive a love triangle, an unplanned pregnancy, a federal crime, a small house fire, many shots of whiskey, and endless rounds of Christmas caroling, in this heart-warming novel about coming home for the holidays.

As I was doing some much needed computer work I realized I had a few reviews of books that I bought/borrowed  that I never shared with you so I thought it was time to add them to my blog finally.

I remember picking up this book last year and reading it right away and I fell in love this this trilogy and had to read the other books in the series. The other books in the series are: Winter Stroll, Winter Storms and Winter Solstice. So in reality this is no longer a trilogy and I am so happy that I got to read this series.

This is Elin Hilderbrand’s first Christmas story. It takes place in Nantucket with the Quinn family. They run a family inn and every year they through a huge Christmas Eve party with a Santa and all. The house is decorated from top to bottom.

The hosts are Kelly (the dad) and his second wife, Mitzi. Kelly is looking forward to spending Christmas with his kids from his first marriage even though financial troubles are hanging over head. He is determined to make this a great Christmas until he catches his wife kissing Santa. But Kelly is shocked when he finds out its been actually going on for years and what he saw wasn’t the first time. Mitzi decides she would rather be with Santa then Kelly and packs up and leaves.

Everyone in this family has drama and it all unfolds within this book. Such as the oldest son, Patrick being investigated for unethical practices and his wife leaves taking the kids with her to go to her parents causing him to head down a downward spiral. If thats not bad enough Kevin is not happy and has a secret romance that he has been hiding from his family but decides he needs to come clean and finally the youngest child Ava who is struggling to hold onto her boyfriend and hopes that he will propose but little does she know that he doesn’t exactly feel the same way about her. Finally Bart, the son he had with Mitzi is currently in the Marines and deployed in Afganistan is missing. No one knows where he is.

As you read this you will probably think that this is going to be a Christmas to remember well in some ways it is going to a be Christmas to remember and not in a good way. This is the story if anything can go wrong it will go wrong.

The book is told in a basically a few days span with its told in several points of view from the Quinn family, Kelly, Mitzi, Margret, Ava, Kevin and Patrick. This was a great way to get to know the characters in a short amount of time.

I loved how even though Kelly and Margret are divorced she is still actively involved in and with the family and that she is still included in family events. I know sometimes divorces can be tricky but it was nice to see that yes they had issues in the past they were able to over come them.

I really enjoyed the book and it was such a fun and quick read just the thing to sort of get you into the holiday mood. Thankfully I was able to pick up the other books in the series quickly from the library so that I could continue this.

The one thing I have to say is going into the book I knew it was a trilogy so the way it ended so quickly I knew I had to read the next book right away. Reading it it honestly felt like the publisher just cut it to make a second book. So you were left hanging.

If you plan on reading this then I highly recommend you have all the books in the series before you begin.

Review/ Saving It

Saving It by Monica Murphy
Publication Date:  November 6, 2017
Pages: 260
Publisher:  Entangled Teen Crush

Eden: Josh Evans and I have been best friends forever. He knows all my secrets, and I know all of his. So when he randomly asks me to help him lose his virginity, I sort of flip out. That’s a question that sends your mind to places you’ve seriously never considered before. Like, you know. Having sex. With your best friend. Except Josh doesn’t want to have sex with me—he wants me to help him find a girl. A nice girl who’s funny and smart and cute. Except he already knows a girl just like that…

Josh: Eden Sumner is my best friend. So of course she’d be the person to help me find my perfect match, so I can drop my V card before I head off to college. Except the more we search, the more I realize that maybe the right girl has been by my side all along. I don’t need Eden’s help in finding me a girl to love. I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with Eden. But now she thinks I’m only after one thing…with anyone but her.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book is what happens when American Pie meets Friends with Benefits. It contains two best friends, plenty of angst, and lots and lots of sex talk. Reading this might have you looking at your best friend in a different light!

Thanks Chapter By Chapter Blog Tour for sending me a copy of the book to read for my review and for allowing me to be a part of the book tour for this.

One of the best things about being a book blogger and reviewing books from publishers/authors/book tours is being exposed to books and authors that you might not normally read on your own and this is the case.

This is my first time reading any of Monica Murphy’s books and I have to say if this one is any indication of her previous books I really need to start picking them up to read. She has several series and stand alones and a new book coming out in the new year called Pretty Dead Girls.

Every now and then I like to break up my reading genres just so that I don’t get overwhelmed within a genre, and I am so happy that this was next on my list because every now and then you need a little romance in your life.

Our two main characters are Eden and Josh and they best friends. They know each other pretty much inside and out. I don’t think each other has thought of the other person as anything more then best friends but as you dig deeper into the story you do realize that they both had thoughts of each other but never acted on them.They both know that they can trust each other with everything. So when Josh asks Eden to help him lose is virginity because he is tired of avoiding the locker room banter she has no problem and they brain storm together to find the perfect girl.

I really enjoyed reading this book and it was just so heart warming that Josh felt like he could trust Eden to help him find the perfect girl and little did they both know that she was standing there the whole time. I loved watching this friendship grow into a more serious one with both Eden and Josh.

I can understand why they never said anything to each other because they didn’t want to risk possibly losing a friendship and I probably would have done the same thing. Sometimes its best not to say anything for fear of that.

Saving It is told in both Eden and Josh’s point of views so you are able to get each others thoughts which I think adds to the story.

I am super excited to read Monica’s other books really soon.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

EXCERPT:

WHAT IS MAGIC?

“Magic is like water. It’s required for all things on this earth to live and it cycles through the world to be reused over and over again. Some things, even some people, soak up more of it than others or require more of it to live. Children are usually more attuned to it than most. They soak it up like little sponges.” Each word from his lips carried a weight I could feel hanging in the air. “Any being on earth is capable of using it, although humans lost interest and forgot how to do that a very long time ago. Most of them can’t even see it or feel it anymore. Their minds have turned to things of metal. It can be that way for faeries, too. In fact, a lot of us have fallen from our former glory to be fed by the machines of the modern world.”

A strange, wild hunger rose up in me so suddenly it made my body stiffen. If magic was real, then surely it had something to do with all the strange things that had been happening to me. I needed to know more—I needed to understand.

“Where does it come from?”

“The moon.” He paused, holding a liquor bottle in each hand as he turned to look me in the eye. “Or at least, that’s what the old songs say. No one knows for sure. But magic is raw energy that we can use as we choose. Even a small amount can accomplish miraculous or even terrible things.”

Review/ Haven

Haven by Mary Lindsey
Publication Date: November 7, 2017
Publisher: Entangled Teen

“We all hold a beast inside. The only difference is what form it takes when freed.”

Rain Ryland has never belonged anywhere, He’s use to people judging him for his rough background, his intimidating size, and now, his orphan status. He’s always been on the outside, looking in, and he’s fine with that. Until he moves to New Wurzburg and meets Friederike Burkhart.

Freddie isn’t like normal teen girls, though. And someone wants her dead for it. Freddie warns he’d better stay far away if he wants to stay alive, but Rain’s never been good at running rom trouble. For the first time, Rain has something worth fighting for, worth living for. Worth dying for.

Ancient magic and modern society collide in a sexy, spellbinding romance perfect for fans of C. C. Hunter and Maggie Stiefvater that proves sometimes beauty is the beast…

Thanks to Chapter By Chapter Blog Tours for allowing me to be a part of this tour and for sending me a copy of the book to read.

One of the best things to happen when I sprained my ankle and that I am still recovering is that I can actually spend a little bit more time reading during the day so I am able to get through my commitments of books.

This is a YA paranormal romance and if you follow my blog I don’t tend to read a lot of paranormal romances with the exception to a few authors and books so this was a nice little treat for me. This also had a little bit of a mystery to it and I think that it added to the book and a little history as well. I love when an author gives a little history about the town the book takes place in. I always find it adds more to the story.

Haven is told from the third person and I have to admit I am usually not a fan but it worked with Haven.

Our main character is Rain (love that name) has suddenly lost his mother and is sent to live with his estranged aunt Ruby. He quickly picks up the feeling that something is not right and he can’t pin point what it is exactly. He notices at his new school that a certain group of kids stick themselves and he knows that there is something there. One of the girls in the that groups has gotten his attention and there is something about her that intrigues him. This girl is Friederike (love this name as well) aka Freddy.

Freddy is not your typical girl. She is very unique and she warns Rain to stay away from her but he can’t because something always happens to bring him in. There is something she is hidding that she doesn’t want him to know because it could kill him but Rain being Rain curiousity gets the best of him and it could cost him his life.

I should mention that Rain is like a bad boy that I know a lot of readers like and I know I do as well. He has grown up on the streets, he has problems and it always seems like he is the one in trouble. But deep down he is a sweet guy and he decided he wants to be better then what he was. Can he?

I just have to take a moment to comment on the cover, how pretty is it? I love how simple and inviting it is.

I do have to say that I found the beginning to be a little slow but it gradually picks up and once I hit that point I had a hard time to put the book down.

I really hope there is another book coming out because I would definitely read it. Although I have to admit the author tied everything up in a nice little bow. I am so happy that I got the chance to read this because I don’t know if this would have been a book I would have picked up on my own so I am happy I saw the email for it.
