Bayside Desires Review & Giveaway


NEW RELEASE........

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.

BAYSIDE SUMMERS is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.

In Bayside Desires...
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.

Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.

Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

All Bayside books can be read as standalone novels or as part of the series:
Coming Soon...
Bayside Heat
Bayside Escape

***REVIEW***
Bayside Desires is an adorable read. The book caught my attention from the start. The way Desiree and Rick meet is the beginning of a perfect summer romance. 
Both characters have a lot on their plate. 
Rick owns a company with his two friends. He seems like the person who has it all, but is it enough? His instant spark with Desiree leaves him wanting more. 
Desiree receives an unexpected and cryptic message from her mother. Desiree didn't always have the best relationship with her mother, yet she still rushes to her mother's aid. Her mother is right that some things are meant to be and happen for a reason. Desiree has much to learn about herself, her family, and possibilities for the future. 
The story kept my interest, and I can't wait for more.

Truly, Madly, Whiskey Review & Giveaway

NEW RELEASE........

A new, emotionally riveting, sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Watch mysteriously sexy Bear Whiskey claw his way to his happily ever after with sassy, rebellious Crystal Moon.

In TRULY, MADLY, WHISKEY…
Eight months is a long damn time to have the hots for a woman who keeps a guy at arm’s length. But Crystal Moon is no ordinary woman. She’s a sinfully sexy, sass-mouthed badass, and the subject of Bear Whiskey’s midnight fantasies. She’s also one of his closest friends. 

Just when Crystal thinks she has her life under control, scorching-hot, possessive, aggressive, and fiercely loyal Bear pushes all her sexual buttons, relentless in his pursuit to make her his.

The more Bear pushes, the hotter their passion burns, unearthing memories for Crystal that are best kept buried. But there’s no stopping the collision of her past and present, catapulting the two lovers down an emotionally charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew about themselves.

***Review***
Truly, Madly, Whiskey is a great addition to the Whiskey series. I've been wanting to know more about Crystal and Bear since Tru Blue. I really like how their story turned out.  
The settings are well described and create a vivid image in the reader's mind with lovable characters. The characters are almost too loyal to their families for their own good. 
Crystal is a very independent and sassy woman, yet there is so much more about Crystal than what meets the eye. Crystal has dealt with a lot in her life, and I am so pleased with the way she opens up and deals with her past.  
Bear is my favorite in this story. He's a very loyal, patient, and caring man. He's also very determined when it comes to the things he wants most. I would love to have someone like Bear in my life. 
Bear's family is fantastic in this story as well. So many different personalities that help make each member of the family stand out. I can hardly wait for the next story in the Whiskey series.

Retaliation Reivew

 

BLOG TOUR
Retaliation
Cat Mason
Release Date: March 31st 2017


When Roanne Frazier is thrown into a dangerous world she knows nothing about, the only one she can count on is the only person who has ever let her down. 
Blood and bullets are part of the game for Jensen Stone. Being President of the Twisted Mayhem MC means sometimes business requires bloodshed and Stone has no problem getting his hands dirty. Known for being fearless and ruthless in his tactics, his main goal is doing all he can to better his club and his town. Though it is easy to be reckless when you have nothing to lose. 
The world as they know it is about to be turned upside down. The pain of their pasts collides with the chaos of the present and sends the tension building between them into overdrive, proving that some things don't fizzle out with time. Secrets are revealed, lives are changed, and the small town of Legion Falls, Tennessee will never be the same. 
Will Ro and Stone find a way to hold onto each other while everything comes crashing down around them? Or will they be torn apart good by their need for retaliation?

Retaliation is a great start to the Twisted Mayhem MC series. The novel caught my interest right from when the unexpected and tragic happens to Roanne's father. It made me instantly want to know more about Roanne and how she'd handle the situation.
At first, Roanne seems like the typical single 26 year-old female with the way she interacts with her father. Throughout the book, more of Roanne's spirited personality comes out. She's not afraid to speak up and do as she pleases. Her strength and behavior impresses me considering the situation she's in. 
Jensen Stone was a mystery to me at first. I wondered why he'd help Roanne, why he ever left her in the first place, and what plans he had for her. I am thankful that many of my questions got answered while reading the story. The interactions between Jensen and Roanne amuse me. 
Even the secondary characters caught my attention. Many of the other members in the Twisted Mayhem MC made me laugh or want to know more about there.  
There were so many twist and turns that I had not expected in this story. I constantly wondered what would happen next and who is behind all the chaos. The book is very well done, and I can't wait until the next one. 



Cat Mason is a thirty year old, married mother of three. When she isn't writing; she is spending time with her kiddos or reading. She was born and raised outside of St. Louis, Missouri, just over the Mississippi River in Granite City, Illinois. Cat writes romance of all kinds with twists of humor.

Scars Review & Giveaway


NEW RELEASE...
Along the breathtaking and unforgiving coast of Snæland, Ásta’s ancestral farm is plagued with bad luck. The kinless maiden’s turf walls continue to be found damaged, and there aren’t enough farmhands to maintain the property. Claw marks in the dirt revive old memories of the wolf attack that left her scarred, and she begins to fear the whispers are true—that Fenrir, son of Loki and king of the wolves, has come to claim her and her land.

Torin often leaves his uncle’s farm in the southern hills to track and ensnare valuable gyrfalcons. His secret ability to turn into the birds he trains means his falconry skills are unparalleled, earning him precious silver and gold. If the ghosts of his past didn’t haunt him daily, pushing him to numb his senses with drink, Torin might have married by now—as his uncle often reminds him. He knows the time has finally come to find a wife and settle down.

During the Althing, the gathering of the year, Ásta’s ability to maintain her property comes into question while Torin wonders if a woman in jeopardy of losing her farm is really worth the trouble.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

***Review***
Scars grabbed my attention from the start with what was going on at Ásta's farm. The situation is well described and left me wondering who is this wolf and will he come back.  
The rumors about the wolf attacks did not make things easier for Ásta. Ásta's bad luck progresses as the story goes on. I frequently worried what could happen to Ásta and her farm. She is a strong character who doesn't back away from responsibilities.  
I really liked Torin's character. Although he has his flaws with running from his past, he's patient and caring towards Ásta. Even when Ásta acts outside of the social norm, Torin doesn't hold it against her. He's determined to help protect the farm and Ásta from the wolf.  
There is much that Ásta and Torin must do to protect their land from those threatening to take their land and the wolf that destroys their property.

Whisper Of Love Review & Giveaway

NEW RELEASE........
Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.

When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive.

Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.

WHISPER ON LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While this can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

****Review****
Honestly, Whisper of Love is my favorite story involving the Braden family so far. The interactions between the characters and the way the settings are described made me love this story. 
Tempest has always been a character I adored, even as a secondary character in the previous stories. She is such a sweet, patient, and caring person. I wanted the best for her. The Bradens are such a close-knit family and I enjoy reading about Tempest's siblings and cousins in this story. 
Nash Morgan is a great character. I liked how standoffish he could see, yet he was willing to open up and communicate better for Tempest. He sounds like such an adorable single father who loves his son Phillip. 
Phillip is probably one of the main reasons why I love this story so much. He is such a sweet boy who tries to follow in Nash's footsteps. It was very entertaining to see him grow throughout the story. His character made me wish the story had no ending and would keep going.

When her boss’s sinfully sexy brother sets his sights on sweet Faith, she knows the self-professed player is everything she shouldn’t want, and she’s determined to resist him.

Sam pulls out all the stops, proving to Faith that his past doesn’t have to define his future. As she lets down her guard and begins to trust Sam, intense conversations turn to intimate pleasures. But when real life steps in and their pasts collide, it’s Faith who’s left with something to prove.

Steve Johnson is living his life’s passion watching over the Colorado Mountains as a ranger and wildlife consultant. But his peaceful life is upended when overzealous and insanely beautiful Shannon Braden flits back into his life after returning from a brief trip home to Maryland. He thought his attraction to her was under control—after all, she’s only in Colorado temporarily, and he doesn’t do casual affairs.

Shannon’s return to Colorado has as much to do with the game of cat and mouse she and Steve have been playing as it does the data she’s been hired to collect. But despite her efforts to explore the undeniable heat simmering between them, Steve’s intent on keeping his distance. 

When a ranch abutting the national park goes up for sale, Steve will do whatever it takes to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. And when all his attempts fail, he’s left with no alternative but to follow Shannon’s guidance into the online world he abhors in order to raise the funds. The more time they spend together, the deeper their attraction becomes, and a game of cat and mouse turns into an unstoppable connection. But when Shannon’s assignment comes to an end, will it mean an end to them, too?
