Book Review!!! ~ Crash Into Me by Alyne Hart

Title: Crash Into Me

Series: Crescent Bay #1

Author: Alyne Hart

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 Release Date: February 18, 2020

ABOUT:

A sexy and emotional romance that transcends the ideas of life and death. Can you suspend disbelief?

For one entire and blissful night, I wasn’t Megan the widow. I was Megan out having a drink with her best friend. I was Megan, getting hit on by a hot, younger guy. I said no, but everything inside of me said yes.

I was still grieving and healing the loss of Sam. Getting my life back to some kind of normal. Until it got complicated. Very, very complicated. Because that hot young guy who wasn’t even supposed to be on my radar – he came crashing in with this weird electric pulse between us and chemistry that’s off the charts. If that wasn’t complicated enough – Liam is a student in my creative writing class with enough complications of his own.

The words in Liam’s poems remind me of Sam’s. He says things that are too familiar. Knows things about me no one else knows. It’s like seeing a ghost. I wasn’t supposed to fall for him, but my happily ever after is gone, and Liam’s arms feel like home.

But when everything starts to make sense, and the pieces come together in the end, am I in love with Liam? Or the memory of Sam?

*Crescent Bay Books are a series of stand alone romances set in the same coastal town*

Levi

It’s no secret I was born from money. And I’m destined to take over the family business, King Cosmetics when my father retires.

At least that was the plan.

Until my father decided to impose some stupid rule about being married before I take the reigns. Everything I’ve worked for hangs in the balance and the future of the company is in jeopardy without a King behind the controls.

I never considered Becca part of the plan for taking over, but when one kiss leads to so much more, I can’t help but wonder if she’s the answer to my problem.

Becca

There are two things I love – my beauty blog and Levi King.

Coming from the same social circle has given me ample opportunity to crush on the next generation of King Cosmetics, but he made it clear a long time ago that I would never be anything more than “like family” to him.

Feeling the need for some serious changes in my life, I start shaking things up.

It wasn’t part of my plan to kiss Levi, but one kiss could never be enough. When that kiss turns into a relationship and I find out that Levi’s been keeping a secret, I begin to question if our love affair was too good to be true.

Looks like we’re about to find out if we can truly build flawless foundations for the rest of our lives. After all 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

Handsome husband—check.

Wonderful life…I could never put a check next to this.

When the unspeakable happens and I’m left alone, its Mick who is there to pick me up.

 

Mick

Not everything is meant to be.

When she starts over again, in my city, in my home; sharing slivers of her story with me it’s then that I learn not everything is as it appears.

NEW RELEASE & BOOK REVIEW!!! ~ Wild Open Hearts by Kathryn Nolan

Title: Wild Open Hearts
Series: A Bluewater Billionaires Romantic Comedy
Author: Kathryn Nolan
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 25, 2019
Cover Design: Kari March Designs

 

Luna da Rosa is America’s Vegan Best Friend. The self-made billionaire is a flower-crowned hippie whose Instagram feed is as popular as Wild Heart – her vegan makeup company. When she’s not changing the cosmetics industry, she’s dazzling her online fans with kombucha recipes. Until Wild Heart is caught in a scandal – destroying her reputation as a cheerful do-gooder.
Beck Mason is the prodigal son of Miami’s most notorious biker gang. But Beck left his criminal family to start Lucky Dog, rescuing dogs who need the most help. Except the surly ex-outlaw never realized leading a struggling nonprofit with a ragtag crew would be so damn hard. They’re in dire need of cash – and fast.
Luna believes working at Lucky Dog will fix her image problem and get Beck the money he needs. It’s a win-win, right? Except Beck doesn’t like the sunny, free-spirited…okay beautiful…billionaire. He sure as hell doesn’t trust Luna not to use him just to make herself look good.
Sure – Beck’s grumpy, stubborn pride and meat-eating ways irritate Luna. Even though Beck’s big-heart-and-big-beard-combo is dangerously sexy. And they really shouldn’t have shared The Kiss to End All Kisses on the back of his motorcycle one night…
But as the bohemian billionaire and the burly biker give into their electrifying attraction – will their differences keep them apart? Or will they finally learn to trust their wild hearts?
Author’s Note: Big, grumpy, bearded hero. Happy-go-lucky, hippie heroine. Snarky banter. Opposites that don’t so much attract as combust. Motorcycle sex. Steamy Miami nights. Four lady billionaire best friends. All the rescue dogs. Major heart-feels.
