Dylan Walker has spent six years trying to move on from the loss of his girlfriend, Presley Cooper. Motivated by grief and the desire to do for others what he couldn’t do for her, he burns the candle at both ends to make it through medical school. After graduation he moves west, putting as much distance as possible between his past and his present.

Or so he thought.
Unknowingly, Dylan has been set on a path that will destroy everything he thought he knew. All the pain, all the grief, was all for nothing. With the help of an unexpected ally, Dylan must find the answers and save the girl he loves before it’s too late.
Deceit.
Betrayal.
Revenge.
A second chance at love.
But first, he must find a way to make her remember her past. Remember him. Remember everything.





Dylan stood in front of his bathroom sink, a towel wrapped around his waist as he wiped the fog from the mirror. He studied his face, the lines that creased the skin around his blue-gray eyes and the shadows underneath that never seemed to fade. His eyes dropped lower, and his hand lifted of its own accord to trace the wing of the butterfly tattooed over his heart. The red ink curved and twisted to form a beautiful wing on one side, while the other was nothing but sharp, broken lines, the decayed black wing dripping with ink. It was the perfect tribute to Presley. She used to say he made her flutter. He regretted never telling her she did the same to him. When she left, she took that feeling with her.

Release Blitz: Monster Among the Roses by Linda Kage


Will you dare to gaze upon the monster among the roses?


MONSTER AMONG THE ROSES
Fairy Tale Quartet #1
Linda Kage
Releasing July 24, 2017


“Do you know how to
get to the rose garden?”
“No, you can’t go
there. A monster lives there.”

Shaw
Hollander is desperate.

Broke,
unemployed, and determined to help his ailing mother, he falls on the good
graces of a wealthy benefactor who is willing to give Shaw a job at his mansion
in order to pay off his mother’s debts. Suddenly finding himself surrounded by
lavish riches, he has no idea what his duties truly entail until he’s sent to
the rose garden and meets the tragically mutilated Isobel.

This Beauty
and the Beast story holds true to the core of the fable while shaking off the
element of fantasy and dragging it into present day reality. Shaw and Isobel
are ready to let you climb into their four-wheel-drive pickup and take a ride
with them into their version of happily ever after, but only if you first dare
to gaze upon the monster among the roses.


4.5 Stars
Review by Jen Skewes

I loved this book.  Monster Among the Roses is a contemporary take on the fairy tale Beauty and Beast.  It has bits and pieces that remind me of the beautiful fable.  But it has been modernized in a way that makes you relate with the characters.  I loved watching Shaw and Isobel’s story unfold.  They way it was told, the way they learned to love and open up together.  It was just a beautiful story.

Shaw has fallen on desperate times.  His mother lost her business, her health is declining, she has bills that have gone unpaid for far too long and his brothers and sisters are useless when it comes to helping him out.  He will do anything to help his mother and take care of her.  He schedules a meeting with Mr. Nash, one of the people that his mother owns money to, and hopes that he can find a way to convince him to forgive his mother’s loan.  He offers up his services in any way that he can in exchange for his mother’s debt being wiped clean.  So Shaw has just become Mr. Nash’s new handyman around his beautiful mansion.  But Shaw soon finds out that he has been hired to be more than just a handy man.  He hired him because of his daughter Isobel.

 When Isobel was seventeen she lost her mother in a fire, the same fired that completely scarred one side of her body.  Aside from doctor’s visits she has not left the house in 8 years.  She spends her time in her library and her rose garden, the two things that give her joy in life.   Her father wants her to feel alive again and not be the hermit that she has become.  Which is part of his reasons for hiring Shaw.  When Isobel first meets him she has no idea who he is, why he is here in her rose garden and lets him know it.  She is bitter and angry and most of the other help try to stay away from her.  But Shaw treats her differently. He doesn’t see her scars, he sees a beautiful woman who he is completely intrigued but and wants to get to know better, but she has no desire to talk to him.  So he comes up with a plan, one that was adorably cute I may add.  And so their friendship begins.  But will anything more come out of this new friendship?  Can two people from two different worlds be together?  Can someone like Shaw fall in love with a woman who is as scarred as Isobel is? 


What I loved about this story the most was Shaw and Isobel and they way they fell for each other.  Shaw was this really sweet and caring guy who only saw beauty when he looked at Isobel.  He was an amazing guy who would do anything for those he loved.  In the beginning Isobel was a little rude and sounded bitter but I could totally understand why.  She was so self-conscious about the way she looked and was so afraid of how she would be treated that I think caused the bitterness and confrontational side of her.  But once you see her open up and start to really feel alive I loved her.  She had a sarcastic side to her that I loved and that just made her and Shaw even cuter together. 

Linda Kage did such a fantastic job with this story.  I loved how Shaw reached out to Isobel, giving her an olive branch so to speak.  I loved the way they started their friendship.  they faced a few obstacles and there was a twist here and there but that is what made this story great.  The Beauty didn’t just fall in love with the Beast and they quickly lived happily ever after.  There were moments of doubt on both ends.  And that is what made it feel real and more relatable.  I loved these characters.  This was a beautiful and at times emotional story.  This was the first book in this series and I cannot wait for the next one.  A great start to a new series by Ms. Kage.

Release Blitz: Dr. Stanton by TL Swan






Title: Dr. Stanton
Author: T L Swan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 20, 2017




Blurb

If happiness is a gift.

Then Cameron Stanton is my Santa Claus.

I can’t tell you the exact moment I fell in love with him.

Only that I did.

With every glance, every touch, every minute…. he stole a little more of me.

They say that all men are created equal.

Well that’s a blatant lie!

I know because I met Gods gift to women in Vegas,

I pretended he was my husband to get rid of another man.

He took our fake marriage seriously and it became his
personal goal to consummate.

He spoke to me in French and I lied to him in German.

His laughter was addictive.

But I thought what happens in Vegas would stay in Vegas.

Until it didn't.

Dr. Stanton turned up where I least expected and my lies came back to haunt me.

The attraction is palpable.

The secrets unchangeable.

I need him more than air.







5 Fantastic Stars!
Review by Lisa Kane
The doctor is in the house! Having gone crazy over the Stanton trilogy, I couldn’t wait to get my greedy hands on Cameron’s story. He was a crucial player in the series, but to be honest I just saw him as Joshua’s womanizing younger brother. I knew he took his career as a physician seriously, but let’s face it; we didn’t get too far into those layers of his. But all that’s changed.
Years ago, Cam had a steamy, magical encounter with a woman in Las Vegas. They both hid their real identities-that was part of the fun. However, what started out as a one-night stand turned into something else. Only Cam lost his mystery woman’s phone number and since they both used fake names…
Fast forward five years later and Ashley Tucker has just moved to LA to start her internship in cardiology under the direction of Dr. Cameron Stanton. She’s heard he’s brilliant, but doesn’t know anything beyond that. I will let your imagination paint you the picture when she comes face to face with the guy she fell in lust with who never called her after their night together.
I really thought we had something.
Dr. Stanton isn’t just a second chance at romance. There’s going to be more than a few twists (buckle up those seats ladies, cause you are gonna love, then hate, then love Cam!) for these two. 
I'm so angry with her, I can't see straight.
Both are strong and independent. They are used to doing what they want and don’t really welcome somebody telling them what to do. Both are capable of inflicting deep, dark beyond hurtful pain on each other. 
 I'm down, alright. I have no idea how to get myself back up.
Way down to go.
Did I mention my beloved Josh, Natasha and Adrian are here too? Did Josh drive me crazy in this story? Yep, but Mr. Poundtown will always own my heart so I will give him a pass. 

Having devoured this book, I will just rock myself in a corner, counting the days until I get my hands on Bridgett’s story-Marxx Girl!
It doesn't matter. He came back.

Vegas

1OAK
Nightclub

I frown as
the man covered in perspiration clings to me once more, oh for heavens sake.
“Do you mind?” I frown as I rip my arm from his grip. The music is pumping and I
am waiting at the bar.
“Not at
all.” He slurs.
Oh god, my
eyes flick over to my group of friends and they all smile and raise their
glasses to me in jest. Damn them. This hens weekend away is reminding me why I
am eternally single. I fake a smile, bitches.
“I mean it
baby, let’s dance.”
I roll my
eyes. “I can’t, I’m waiting for someone, you should probably run along.”
“Who?” he
asks. Oh give up, pushy bastard.
A tall and
dark haired good looking guy walks past and I grab him by the arm, he frowns as
he turns back toward us. “This guy. “I smirk.
The creepy
guy frowns and curls his lip at his competition.
My eyes
scan up and down the guy I have just grabbed, oh, he’s gorgeous. I planned that
well.
The guy
raises an eyebrow in question as his eyes flick between us.
“This is my
husband.” I smile as I link my arm through his. He looks like a nice guy, I’m
sure he will save me.
The tall
guy raises an eyebrow in surprise and smiles. “And you are my …….wife?” He
questions as his eyes flick between me and them man.
I nod.
“Aha.” Oh boy, don’t blow my cover.
Tall dark
and handsome turns his gaze onto the man before us as he snakes his arm around
my waist. “You have met my gorgeous wife then?”
I narrow my
eyes as I listen to his voice, I think he’s Australian.
The creepy
guy narrows his eyes. “You don’t know him.” He sneers. “I don’t believe you.”
Tall dark
and handsome smirks and leans over and grabs the back of my head and pulls me
towards him, his tongue rims my lips and he sucks on my mouth, his tongue takes
no prisoners as it swipes deep into my mouth….what the frigging hell? His hand
drops to my behind and he squeezes the cheek in his hand. Oh my god, this was
not in the brochure.
He pulls
away and licks his lips as his eyes drop to my breasts and back up to my face.
I fake a
smile as my mind goes totally blank. “Huh.” My eyes flick back to the other guy
as I lick my lips, holy crap. What kind of kiss was that? “Umm.”
Tall dark
and handsome takes my hand in his. “Fuck off mate, she’s with me.” He then pulls
me by the hand through the crowd, what, wait, where are we going? My eyes flick
over to my friends who are all high fiving each other over my random kiss with
Mr Holy Hot. Should I just pull out of his grip? What the hell for, this guy is
freaking delicious. Oh shit, we arrive over to his group of friends and he puts
his arm around my waist and pulls my body close to his.
“Boys.” He
acknowledges his large group of friends. “You will be pleased to know I just
got married en route from the bar. Please meet my new wife.”
Their eyes
meet and they all shake their heads and laugh. “Hello.” They all smile. “Nice
to meet you.” One man replies as he shakes my hand.
  I smirk as his hand tightens around my waist.
“About
time.” One guy says as he shakes his hand. “Congratulations mate, what’s your
wife’s name?”
His eyes
flick to me and he smiles sexily again. “Blossom.”
 I laugh out loud. “Blossom?”
 His friends all look me up and down and smile
and then go back to their conversation as if this is a common occurrence.
His eyes
drop to my breasts again.
“My eyes
are up here.” I reply, he can’t even pretend not to stare.
He picks up
his beer and drinks it down. “So?”
I frown, of
all the nerve. “So, you keep looking at my boobs.”
“You
noticed?”
My mouth
drops open in. “Well, I’m not imaging it.”

Blog Tour: Hard Love by Joanne Schwehm

Title: Hard Love
Author: Joanne Schwehm
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
Release Date: July 18, 2017


Noah Winston’s life was perfect. He had it all: striking looks, more money than he could ever spend, good friends, and any woman he wanted. 

Margo Perry’s life wasn’t perfect, but it was her own. She didn’t need a man to make her happy or feel better about herself. 

Then he saw her – a gorgeous, rain-soaked stranger – but she wasn’t a stranger at all. They’d known each other a lifetime ago, when she was just a girl. Now, she was all woman.

Then it happened. The man she had spent her teenage years lusting over rescued her on a bleak yet fateful day. There he was, straight out of her dreams, looking better now than he had years ago.

The more time he spent with her, the more he questioned everything he knew.

The more time she spent with him, the more those old feelings resurfaced and grew stronger.

Too bad it only took one night, a few words, and a terrible decision, to ruin it all.

Too bad it was too good to be true.

Review by Jen Skewes

Margo Perry is putting all her efforts into her new company, Exquisitely Yours, a shopping service for those who can’t be bothered to do their own shopping. Her family may have money, but Margo wants to prove to herself that she can make it on her own. 
When she was younger, her older brother Adam hung out with a couple of heart thumping guys- Noah Winston and their friend Cade. Almost seven years older than Margo, they looked at her like Adam’s cute little sister. But to Margo-Noah was the stuff of her adolescent dreams. But he crushed her when he turned down her invite to her prom.
It’s years later, there’s a reunion in the rain and this time around Noah is the interested one. Margo is no longer that geeky teen ager; now she’s all grown up and gorgeous. 
“Margo?” Her eyes narrowed for a minute as she studied me. 
“Margo Perry?”
Her perfectly shaped lips fell open. “Noah?” When I nodded, her lips curved up in the prettiest way, and in an instant, I pictured not only kissing them, but doing other things to them as well.
But she hasn’t forgotten how she felt by Noah’s rejection and vows to just leave things in the past. Noah is equally determined to get to know this new Margo and is willing to pursue her despite her objections. 
 “What will it take for you to date me?”
Noah is insanely rich and is one hell of an eligible bachelor. Margo is more than aware of his reputation of loving and leaving them. But Noah is honestly interested in her. So what’s the problem? Noah has issues-big issues because of his childhood. He doesn’t talk about his family-he is too focused on his life now and the beautiful woman he wants to spend time getting to know. 
Hard Love has lots of drama and frustration. The two main characters are genuine and funny and worth getting to know between the pages. I love conflict and stomach plummeting moments. This one checks off all my boxes!  
 “For years, I told myself what I felt for you was just a crush, but now I know that even as a teenager, my heart wanted yours.”
