Cover Reveal: Girl Crush by Stephie Walls

Cover Design: Wicked by Design
Release Date: September 21, 2017


I was done.

Done with men.

Women say it all the time; they get fed up, throw their hands in the air, and vow a life of celibacy—until the next chiseled chest comes into view and then they’re foaming at the mouth and wiping the drool from their chins. But this was different, I really meant it.

I’d been manhandled by the last pig that would ever bring his sausage near me. After one of the nastiest divorces in history, followed by some of the crudest and raunchiest dates, I’d decided to bat for the other team.

…At least I tried.

But creating the next Brat Pack hadn’t been on the agenda. Neither had Collier West. And I wasn’t prepared for finding true love at the end of my gal-pal tryst.



One of Five ARC's for Girl Crush

About THE TIME IN BETWEEN (Magdalene Series #3):

After a painful loss, Cady Moreland is coming to Magdalene to start the next chapter of her life. A chapter that began eighteen years ago but had a heartbreaking ending. The time in between was full of family and friendship, but Cady could never get the man she fell in love with all those years ago out of her heart.

Coert Yeager has learned to live without the girl who entered his life right when she shouldn’t and exited delivering a crippling blow he never would have suspected. The time in between was full of failing to find what he was missing…and life-altering betrayal.

But when that girl shows up in Magdalene and buys the town’s beloved lighthouse, even if Coert wants to avoid her, he can’t. A fire in town sparks a different kind of flame that won’t be ignored.

As Cady and Coert question the actions of the two young adults they once were thrown into earth-shattering circumstances, can they learn from what came in between and find each other again?

4 Stars!
Review by Jen Hagen

I love Kristen Ashley’s detailed writing.  It took me a long time to be able to finish this book…summer vacation with the kiddos taking up most of my spare minutes…but every time I went to pick it up, I knew exactly where the story had left off.  Ms. Ashley has a way of keeping the story moving while throwing in any information you may have let slip by you without forcing redundancy to the reader.  

Cady and Coert were young lovers 18 years ago.  Cady comes from a despicable home life;  she is never appreciated for who she is, but rather expectations are set high for her to follow.  Cady doesn’t want the life her parents expect out of her.  She is perfectly content working at a convenience store, making minimum wage, striving for the manager position to make her dreams of a clothing buyer come true.  Cady has all the time in the world to pursue this dream and she wants to do it her way.  I can’t stand her family.  And her brother…ugh… don’t get me started.  But yet who does he call when he needs life and death help?...Yep..  Cady. 

Coert is a successful sheriff of a small town.  He knows the people and all the things that go on in a small town.  He is certainly aware of the fact that the local lighthouse has been sold to Cady; however, he does not give her the neighborly small town welcome.  He pretty much lays down his law when he comes upon Cady face to face…

“I don’t wanna see you.  I don’t wanna hear from you.  I don’t want anything to do with you.  I can’t imagine what would give you even that first hint that I’d ever wanna have you even a shadow in my life again.” 

Judging from that, I think we can all assume their little romance 18 years ago did not end well.  It’s probably because 18 years ago Coert asked Cady to do him a solid and Cady didn’t follow his words.

“Stick with me.  Believe in me, Cady.  Even if you don’t know what I’m asking, I’m still gonna ask it.  Don’t give up no matter what.” 

Cady didn’t stick around for answers and she moved on.  So why the interest in Coert now?  What is Cady thinking moving from Denver, Colorado to Maine??  In everything Cady does, she has a purpose and a plan.  There’s a method to her thinking, but it’s a huge risk.  This time around though she has the backing of a huge support system; one that will not let her down and will go to bat for her. Cady isn’t a damsel in distress.  She is a fiercely independent 41-year-old woman.  You go, girl!  We are rooting for you!!  Get your man!!

All of Ms. Ashley’s male characters in the books I have read are a very strong alpha male, and Coert is no different.  For everybody that loves Ms. Ashley’s writing knows that there are certain terms we come to expect our male characters to speak or behave.  This book is no different.  It elated me to find the words “solid,” “handling it,” and “glowering” used in the writing.  While this is the third book in the Magdalene Series you do not need to have read the previous 2.  If there was any character overlap, it wasn’t significant to cause disturbance to the reader.

About Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing's changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

Release Blitz: Dr. Neuro by Max Monroe


I’m Dr. Nick Raines.
Brain surgeon and notorious over-thinker, I take the analytical approach with everything, until I can determine the best, carefully calculated plan of action. It’s no shock the producers of the popular reality series The Doctor Is In have decided to call me Dr. Neurotic.   

Besides my more than full-time job as Chief of Neurosurgery at St. Luke’s Hospital, I’m a single dad and my number one priority is my daughter.     

But life had plans to add another priority to my list. 
Charlotte Hollis. Outspoken, impulsive, and beautiful, she’s everything I didn’t know I was craving. 

She makes me wonder What if?

What if I don’t have to be alone for the rest of my life to give my little girl the father she deserves?
It's a battle—my battle: Head vs. Heart. 

3.5 Stars
Review by Lisa Kane

I’ve read everything from the writing team of Max Monroe. When I read Scoring the Billionaire, I remember the loathing that I had for Winnie’s baby daddy, Nick Raines. He was the guy who skipped out on Winnie when she found out she was pregnant. He had a major offer in another part of the country that would fast track his neuro career. He wasn’t going to let a baby or a pregnant girlfriend stand in his way. So Winnie became a single mom, eventually met Wes and married him. Nick came in and out of her daughter Lexi’s life. Towards the end of the story, he made a better effort to become a good dad-he had moved back to New York and was spending time with Lexi. But in my mind-a douche is still a douche.
So imagine my surprise when I realized that the hero of the last book in the St. Luke’s Docuseries series is about Nick Raines. Apparently, it’s a few years after Scoring the Billionaire’s timeline, Nick has Lexi every other weekend and his life revolves around work and his daughter. His co-worker, Will Cummings, convinces him to be one of the bachelor’s on the reality show that he is featured on –a decision that all of the guys have since regretted. 
“I don’t feel like talking. I don’t feel like commiserating over your fallen reputation, and I don’t feel like forgiving you for talking me into this mess.” I knew there was no real way Will could have known the direction this show would go or the unintended consequences it would have on my life, but anger wasn’t reasonable. Neither was I. 
Charlotte Hollis works for as a headhunter for a hospital based company recruiting the top talent for their system. She’s finally back in New York and is thrilled not to be travelling as much. Nick Raines is on her list as a possible candidate for her group. At their first meeting, it’s obvious that they both are more than a little attracted to each other. Where’s this going?
Basically, if this was Nick Raines, he was sexy as fuck. Most forty-year-old neurosurgeons looked like they’d been run over a few times by a van thanks to unforgiving schedules, unreal pressure, and a stubborn inability to delegate.
Once Nick finds out that the job, as lucrative as it is, is out of state, he shuts down the possibility. He won’t leave his daughter again. 
Even though they won’t be doing business with each other, there’s lots of unfinished business between them. There is more than a little angst in this story. Nick is a dad first, and he makes decisions based on what he thinks is best for his daughter. I hated one of those decisions. Hated it…
Charlotte has made some mistakes in her past, and they aren’t going to stay in the past. Expect your mouth to make little “O’s” when things come to light. Did I totally forgive Nick? Nope. I have to admit that I had a hard time seeing past this guy’s mistakes. And clearly, he kept on messing. Up. For the most part, I liked Charlotte, but she tries way too hard to win Lexi’s affections. While it’s natural to want to get along with Nick’s daughter, I guess she must have felt that if she didn’t win her over, maybe things between her and Nick would nosedive. 
Lexi Winslow was a gifted little girl. There was no doubt about it. The only doubt I had was whether I was making the actual cut or not. 
While I wasn’t as crazy about this one as the first two in the series, if I hadn’t known Nick’s back-story I may have been a lot more forgiving of his mistakes. As always the writing from Max Monroe was solid, it was the disconnect with the main characters that held me back.   
I guess I was biased, but when it came to love, wasn’t being biased a good thing?

It meant that you only had eyes for that person and you loved every little piece of them, even their flaws. Through your eyes, they were everything.

Blog Tour: Into the Crease by Toni

Jensen Monroe is a unicorn. As handsome as any model, as polite as can be, a goalie of unmatched skill, and the best friend anyone could ask for. But he longs for a particular special someone to make his life complete. He’s been in love with Wren since he was a teenager, but as his best friend’s sister, she’s always been off-limits.

Wren Lemiere has prided herself on being a love ’em and leave ’em girl her whole life. She’s all about equal opportunity in the battle of the sexes. Why should guys like her brother and his best friends get to be the only ones allowed to play the dating game? One wrong move, however, and she finds herself in violation of her own rules.

In need of a fake husband and baby daddy for her unexpected bundle of joy, Wren finally accepts Jensen is the logical one to ask for help. Except he has a counteroffer…one with so many strings attached, they may just find themselves wrapped up in ties that bind. Forever.

4 stars
Review by Lisa Kane 

Wren Lemiere has a problem. A big problem. Seems she and her lifelong friend/lover Bradley made a baby. But it's going to be alright. She's almost thirty, has a great job with the Nashvill Assassins, hockey team and is just about to inherit a nice chunk of change. There's just one stipulation-she can't inherit if she had a baby out of wedlock before she turns thirty. Barbaric, yep, but thems the rules. 

The only fly in the ointment-Bradley has his own plans. They don't include Wren nor a baby. Wren just isn't part of the image this power hungry lawyer needs. Her ample womanly curves don't fit the bill. 

"Yeah, it isn't like we love each other. I mean, come on. You're not even my type."
"Your type?"
"Wren, come on' he said simply, holding his hands out.
"You're not trophy wife material."

Jensen Monroe is the goalie for the Assassins. He's so close to getting his team to winning the Stanley Cup he can taste it! When that win comes, it's a little bitter sweet. His parents weren't able to make it to see him play and while all his teammates are being tackle hugged by their loved ones, he has no one. As much as he loves his life on the ice, his life off of it is lonely. 

Wren's known Jensen for years-he's her brother Wells' best friend. She's been the little sister, (although most of the players are scared of her temper!) and they were all protective of her. Of course, Jensen's feelings are far from brotherly.

Jesus, Wren Lemiere would be the death of him.
His best friend's little sister had always had him in knots. 

But he's never wanted to disrespect her family who mean the world to him, and deep down he has reasons to believe he's not nearly good enough for her. 

Wren takes things in her own hands, just meets with Jensen and puts it all out there. He's a great guy, he's single and it's only temporary. 

"I'd rather it be someone who knows my family, knows me, because it will be easier. I'm comfortable with you, and we can act like we're desperately in love."

"And we'll end it once the baby comes?"

Things are about to get complicated! There are secrets and hidden feelings and a real baby who will be here before they know it. 

Jensen is a great character, he suffers from self esteem issues but if he has a fault, it's that he puts everyone else's needs before his own. Wren is feisty and independent, but she can be too impulsive and inappropriate at times. (a certain wedding and her impulsive actions for one) But all in all, I could feel the connection between the two of them.

Life-he wanted to do life with her. Only her.

Brie snickered as Vaughn went on. “I know this is going to be hard. Like, really hard on you. But, buddy, I’m sorry to say, we bought a house.”
Jensen just stared back at him. “Okay? Why is this hard?”
“Because you’re not moving with us.”
He rolled his eyes. “Jo, we haven’t lived together for six months since you moved in with Brie.”
“I know, but we were across the hall.”
Jensen laughed. “I’ll be fine without you guys—”
“Now, I know this comes as a shock, but we’re having a baby, and we need space for us and the baby.”
“I know—”
“Now, Jenny, I know this is going to be difficult, putting space between us—”
“You know we lived apart for years, right?”
But Vaughn went on. “Just know I will always and forever love you as my brother, and nothing will change. Not the space, the new ball and chain, or the baby.”
“Are you done?”
Brie apparently thought this was hilarious since she was basically choking she was laughing so hard. Which wasn’t anything new. Vaughn might be an idiot, but he was a funny one. As always, Vaughn was unaffected as he said, “We’ll never be done, Jenny, never.”
“Okay,” Jensen said, rolling his eyes again. “Listen, this is awesome. I’m happy for you guys, and let me know when we need to start moving stuff.”
“You’re such a good man,” Vaughn proclaimed before clapping his hands together. “This weekend good for you?”
Laughing, he just shook his head at Vaughn’s antics. “Yeah, man.”
“Thanks, Jensen.”
He smiled over at Brie. “Anytime.”
Rolling his eyes, he went back to eating as a grin played on his lips. He wanted nothing more than for his friend to grow and be in love. Brie was that for Vaughn. They were moving and having a kid, and it was great. Vaughn needed that. So did Wells, who was getting married the following month. Both his best friends were living life, happily and to its fullest. Meanwhile, Jensen was stuck.
He didn’t know how it happened, or even why, but it had. He wasn’t interested in anyone he met, and he didn’t just want to fuck around. He wanted someone to love him for him. The quiet, weird guy in the corner. The one who would lay down his life for anyone he loved. He had redeemable qualities, but for some reason, no one wanted them. They just wanted to have sex.
He didn’t want Netflix and chill; he wanted Netflix and breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and more.
Hmm, he should copyright that.
Taking a huge bite of his chicken, he felt his phone start to vibrate. He pulled it out, seeing that it was a text from Wren, as he chewed. Like always when she texted him, his heart sped up, and his palms went clammy as a lump formed in his throat. Or maybe that was the chicken, he wasn’t sure. Either way, he slid the notification over so that his text thread with her opened up before he read her message.
Wren: Are you free anytime this week?

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?

From New York Times Bestseller, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, Comes OH, HENRY, Book Two of the Ohellno Series. (Stand Alone Story.)


My name is Henry Walton, and though I’ve been called many things throughout my life—tree trunk, moose, walrus—I am now six foot five, solid muscle, and the hottest defensive end in the NFL college draft. This is the moment I’ve been waiting for: fame, women, and glory.

Just one problem: I’m suddenly in a bad slump. And it started the moment I got dumped by Elle, the nerdy goddess with thick glasses, a smokin’ hot body, and a genius IQ.

So what gives? We only dated for a few weeks, and it’s not like I’ve missed her. (Much.) Regardless, all the facts point to one conclusion. Elle is my lucky nerd-charm.

So call me superstitious, but I have to get her back before I lose everything. Even if she’s the last girl I should want and she now hates my guts.

Release Blitz: Under Her by Samantha Towle


A steamy and hilarious standalone romance from New York Times best-selling author Samantha Towle…

I’m used to being in charge. In and out of the office.

So, when my parents go behind my back and hire a co-CEO to help me manage my family’s business, let’s just say, I don’t take it too well.

Especially not when the woman they’ve hired is the one girl who hated my guts in college. She thinks I’m an overprivileged, womanizing man-whore. I think she’s an uptight, stuck-up bitch.

And, now, she’s here, in my office, telling me how to run my company.

I don’t think so.

It doesn’t matter that she has legs that go on for days or that I keep imagining bending her over my desk and showing her just how bossy I can be.

I’ve worked my ass off and paid my dues to get to where I am, and she’s not taking it from me.

No freaking way.

Morgan Stickford is about to learn the hard way that Wilder Cross is the only boss around here.

4.5 stars
Review by Lisa Kane
Wilder Cross is ready to take over as the CEO of Under Her Lingerie when his parents retire. During the week, he’s all business but the weekends are time to hang with his best friends and take a different woman to his bed. There are no repeats on that roller coaster ride. He loves sex, and always makes sure the woman is satisfied, but it’s never the same woman. 
I love my job. And I love having a different woman in bed with me every weekend. I get to have regular sex without the demands and complications of a relationship, as there are always plenty of women willing to service my needs. 
Imagine his surprise when his parents tell him that they’ve hired a Co-CEO to help him with the transition. Morgan Stickford is well educated, competent and is a blast from Wilder’s past. They both attended Northwestern College at the same time. But Wilder’s memories of her can be summed up by his nickname Stick-Up-Her-Ass Ford. For some reason she despised him. Yes, he may have been even more of a manwhore then, than he is now, but he never did anything to her. 
But then that was nine years ago. A lot can change in nine years Maybe Morgan Stickford has changed.
This new older Morgan is not the same one Wilder knew. She is gorgeous and poised and a real knock out. As much As Wilder wants to resent her sharing his company, he can’t help but be intrigued. 
Funny how two people can live the same experiences, and yet have very different versions.
“You know me, babe. Anything over a size four, and I show her the door.”
And that is the exact moment that I stop crushing on Wilder Cross and start hating on him instead.
Most of Under Her is from Wilder’s POV, most of the chapters from Morgan’s are from nine years ago, when they last saw each other. Hers are really painful and every time I read one, I wanted to smack Wider for being such a self-centered ass. He may not have realized how his actions hurt someone else, but he repeated the same behavior over and over. 
Because he’s an asshole. Hating Wilder is the only line of defense that I have left now. 
Under Her is funny, sexy, and sad. Both characters are adults now, full of self-confidence and have paid their dues in the business world. They are competitive and full of one-upmanship when the need arises. But Morgan is constantly taken back to her painful place when Wilder messes up. And of course, he messes up all the time. 
But it’s always the times when you’re at your happiest that things go to shit. 
Because, when things go up, they always shave to come down. 
I loved Under Her. It’s classic Samantha Towle writing-gorgeous funny hero’s that are worth angsting over, feisty heroines that are strong but thrown off their game by these same men. Ms. Towle never disappoints!
“I hate that I did that. I hate that I don’t even remember. I can’t change the past. All I can do is try to make up for it and apologize for my dickish behavior back then…and now.”
