NEW RELEASE!!! ~ The Night We Met by Beth Rinyu

Title: The Night We Met
Author: Beth Rinyu
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 18, 2019
I’ve always been three things: Loving daughter, devoted sister, and cynical romantic. Okay, maybe not always the last one, that didn’t happen until my ex-boyfriend cheated on me, and not with just anyone…my best friend.

One year later, and I’m over relationships, only interested in the occasional one-night stand. I don’t fall in love with them, and I don’t expect them to fall in love with me. I won’t be waiting around for their call or stalking their social media—until I discover that one of my little trysts indirectly holds my family’s fate in his hands. So, with a little convincing from my older and much wiser sister, I break my own rules for the sake of my family.
 
He’s the exact opposite of me: Serious, detached and arrogant. Did I mention that he looks like he should be on a billboard for a cologne ad in the middle of Times Square, or the sexy way he botches up my name in his German accent? Well, he does…but I refuse to relent, remaining committed to my plan. Strictly business, no emotions involved, and nobody will get hurt…until nobody turns into somebody I find myself needing more than I ever thought possible.
 
What do you do when a one-night stand turns into so much more than you bargained for? And how do you stop one lie that’s getting bigger each time you’re with him from caving everything in around you? I know in the end someone is going to get hurt, but I’m powerless to stop it. And for him…I think I may be willing to have my heart broken all over again.

Following their haunting trail, she stumbles onto a series of recordings that reveal a horrifying truth about the respected doctor. 
As her blocked memories finally break free, Coralyne is crippled by the fear she’ll never escape the horrors of the Ravyn’s nest.

RELEASE & REVIEW TOUR!!! ~ Making Up by Helena Hunting

Synopsis:

A new standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting.

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

Author: Jessie Cooke

Release Date: July 1, 2019

 

When you’re already a dead man, where do you go from there? Finn McGregor, aka Ian Parker, aka Snake, had been given a second chance in life. Unfortunately, he wasn’t sure what to do with it. As part of the Phoenix Skulls, Finn felt overlooked by his president and old lady for almost everything. He struggled to overcome his seedy past and the anger he still held onto, from his childhood, toward his absent parents. Forging a new, tenuous relationship with his father had been easier than Finn had imagined it would be. At least he had someone to talk to that understood what it was like to have to start all over.
 
When his old man asks him to meet with a “friend” from Ireland at a coffee shop in downtown Phoenix, Finn’s life is suddenly upended, again. Purely by chance he meets a woman, who believes he is someone else. Finn’s used to pretending, and she’s hot…so why not? Unbeknownst to either of them, that meeting will thrust them both into danger. Through kidnapping, shootings, beatings and even murder, the two of them will take a journey unlike any other…but the question remains, who will be left standing in the end.
 
When Finn realizes everything he thought he knew about himself was a lie, he has two choices. He can give in to the anger yet again, and sink back down to the abyss. Or, he can man up, do the right thing, and hopefully make his club, and the woman he’s falling in love with, proud.
 
Hope is a powerful drug…will it be Finn’s new drug of choice? You’ll have to drop in to Phoenix and ride with the Skulls to find out. Hold on tight, and lean in to the curves!
