Release Day Blitz Review: Danny's Main by Lisa N. Paul

Danny's Main Front

A man walks into a bar... That's how all jokes start, but this isn't a joke. This is their story. Their lust. Their love. Their loss. Their life. And all because, a man walked into bar. ****Interwoven characters --STANDALONE -- Can be read as a series Prologue or an Epilogue Flashback.****

WHAT AN AMAZING BOOK! Lisa really nailed this one out of the park. I fell in love with the residents in Charistown years ago during Thursday Nights. Throughout the series, we see the loving married couple Danny and Julie. They are the bar owners so dish out great advice to their employees but we never heard their journey. Well this book is it and it has all the feels. The emotions this book brought out in me shocked me.

Danny walked into a bar where Julie worked as a young man. Immediately taken with her spunk and beauty he had to have her. And had her he did.  Danny is by far the yummiest dominating man in Charistown. The way he loved Julie was inspiring and had me swooning on more than one occasion.
But Danny and Julie’s life wasn’t all hot sex (but they had it that’s for sure) and roses. It was full of trials and heart break after heart break. Julie was an amazingly strong character. She may have lost her way a time or two but she knew she was a rock to Danny’s foundation and with the help of loved ones she did.

Lisa N Paul really gave us a story that could have been anyone of our real life stories. The realness of their love story flew off the pages and straight into my heart! I also loved seeing how they met their employees turned family as each other came into their lives. So beautiful.

If you haven’t read this series, you need to binge read ASAP! It is one that should not be missed.

Review: Absolution Road by Rachel Blaufeld




For Jake Wrigley, the future is bleak. Some people are survivors, but he’s getting by on his bad-boy looks and charming smile. He owns a gym, gets into bar fights, and wrestles his demons with rough workouts—both in and out of the bedroom.

For Alyson Road, the future is bright. Life can only improve from where she grew up. She graduated at the top of her law class, cares for her ailing mom, and in her job, she defends those who can’t afford anyone else. Her work is thankless but honest.

Jake’s twin brother has been covering his ass for as long as they’ve been alive, but that all changes when Jake finds himself in front of the fiery public defender, his future in her hands. For the first time ever, he doesn’t want to involve his brother, finally realizing he needs to stand alone, be his own man.

Even if Jake’s never absolved of his past wrongdoings or his heart is never scrubbed of the blackness that resides there, he can do one good deed—protect the beautiful lawyer who touched his soul—until helping her nearly becomes his own undoing.







The blurb for this book grabbed me right after I fell in love with the cover! Can you say YUM! Even though this book can be read as a standalone, I chose to read book one Resolution Lane first. I would say reading the Lane Wrigley’s book does enhance your enjoyment of Absolution Road which is about Jake Wrigley.

I will say that after reading Resolution Lane, I was very nervous about this book. In book 1, Jake is not a great character. I wanted to hit him a few times and I was scared I wouldn’t like him in Absolution Road. But I was WRONG!!! I really liked Jake. I felt that he had grown up some and was incredibly likable. For someone who needed to be saved by his brother, he was fiercely protective and it was so sexy.

Alyson is a great heroine. She was tough and grew up very poor. But she became a lawyer and a damn good one too. When she gets together with Jake the couple couldn’t have been more opposite. But Aly triggered something in Jake to be better and take care of her no matter how much she didn’t want him too.

One thing this book had that RL didn’t have was a bit of a mystery to it. I will say that I figured it before the characters did but I enjoy the twist. The twists kept coming toward the end and I really loved where the author went with the story. I also really liked her writing and will be definitely looking for more great books from Rachel Baufeld.




Leaning my chair back on its two rear legs, I couldn’t help but laugh again before trying to contain myself. This chick and her soft demeanor were all business. Of course, she would be. Who else would work on Christmas Eve? I was pretty certain she could have made me wait until the day after Christmas to post bond, but here she was defending the public on the most holy night of the year.

Add a big heart to the brain, tits, and long legs I’d already noted in her plus column. Maybe I didn’t want to bang her, but rather cherish this sweet thing? The reality of that seemed slim, seeing as the smart, good girls didn’t go for me. Nor did I expect them to. I was the bad boy, and I had the guilty conscience to back that notion right the fuck up.

“Of course, Ms. Road. It’s Jake, by the way. Just J-A-K-E. Full name is J-A-S-O-N, but I haven’t been called that in twenty years.” I mocked her spelling with my very own rendition, teasing the schoolgirl, looking for a reaction like I was in the third grade. “So, let’s get down to brass tacks and get my ass outta here so you can head home to your . . . husband? Boyfriend? He must be waiting for a gem like you to come home to start the holiday, right?”

No harm in trying.

As I spoke, she narrowed her eyes and glared daggers at me. “Are you done with probing into my personal life, interrogating me? I’m pretty sure I’m not the one in jail.”

Obviously annoyed, she followed that volley with another few leg switches. Left over right, right over left. I wanted to grab her knees and spread her limbs and dive in, let my tongue dig deep into her folds, make her let go of all that stuck-up bullshit she had going on while screaming my name. She probably tasted like sweet honey.





Rachel Blaufeld is a social worker/entrepreneur/blogger turned author. Fearless about sharing her opinion, Rachel captured the ear of stay-at-home and working moms on her blog, BacknGrooveMom, chronicling her adventures in parenting tweens and inventing a product, often at the same time. She has also blogged for The Huffington Post, Modern Mom, and StartupNation.
Turning her focus on her sometimes wild-and-crazy creative side, it only took Rachel two decades to do exactly what she wanted to do—write a fiction novel. Now she spends way too many hours in local coffee shops plotting her ideas. Her tales may all come with a side of angst and naughtiness, but end lusciously.
Rachel lives around the corner from her childhood home in Pennsylvania with her family and two dogs. Her obsessions include running, coffee, icing-filled doughnuts, antiheroes, and mighty fine epilogues.

Review: Covet Me by Geneva Lee

covetmefinal

Belle Stuart walked into my life with crimson lips, and a smart mouth to match, that made it impossible not to put her in her place—and on her knees.

She should be off-limits. Claiming her was reckless. Keeping her is dangerous. But she's more than a conquest, she's my obsession.

I'll do what it takes to protect her, even if it means letting her go.

But she's the one woman I can't give up. She's the one woman I can't stop craving.

She's the one I covet...

COVETMETEASER2


Geneva Lee’s Royal Saga series is pure gold! I love love this series and I just can’t get enough. After being left off with wanting more from Crave Me, I craved book 2!

Smith is still as hot as sin. Belle is still his equal and fiercely strong and goes after what she wants. Smith needed to make some changes but in doing so has to push Belle away. I will say the way he went about doing this made me want to punch him in the nuts but since I knew it was for her protection.

I don’t want to spoil this book for anyone so I won’t go any further about what happens. But I will just say that the writing was great. The story progressed so smoothly and had a way of surprising me with a twist or two which I loved. As for the sex scenes, they were off the charts hot! What I love is that Geneva is on book 5 of this series and her sex scenes are still fresh and smokin’!
I’m complete addicted to this series and can’t get enough. I want it to be a TV series so I can watch every week and binge on it between seasons!

Review: The Allure of Dean Harper

Title: The Allure of Dean Harper (Allure #2)
Author: R.S. Grey
Release Date: Sept 28, 2015

From: LilyNBlack@Gmail.com

Subject: You’re a flippin’ idiot


Good morning my dear, naive friend,

I hope you’re enjoying a breakfast of regret and sorrow.

Why?

Because you sent me to work for Dean Harper, aka a control freak in a tailor-made suit. Sure he owns the trendiest restaurants in NYC, but c'mon Jo, his ego makes Kanye West look like the Dalai Lama.

He's the type of guy that only hears the word “no” when it's followed by “don’t stop.”

Working for Dean Harper would be like selling my soul to the devil…and before you say anything, I don’t care if the devil has punch-you-in-the-gut brown eyes and an ass to match. My soul isn’t for sale.

Regretfully yours,
Lily


The Allure of Dean Harper is a full-length standalone romance with overlapping characters from The Allure of Julian Lefray. Both books can be read separately. Chronologically, The Allure of Julian Lefray happens first. 





This book was a hilarious story that brought a couple from enemies to lovers. I think RS Grey writes one of the best banter between characters out there. I find myself so engulfed in her books that I ignore the rest of my life and live in the world she creates!

Dean Harper thinks he is God’s gift to restaurants and women. And he totally is but Lily Black can’t stop herself from trying to prove that fact is false. Lily is full of spark and fire and was a breath of fresh air for heroines. I love when the woman is so strong and opinionated. They instantly hate each other but over time as they work together they realize the other is exactly what they want. They don’t have a lovey dovey relationship. Complete opposite.

I loved the restaurant aspect of this book since I was in the restaurant business for many years. The author did an amazing job with accuracy on how it all worked. It made me miss those days a little.
The Allure of Dean Harper is prime humor and great writing. This is a book you can cuddle up with and let the laughs and characters take you away. I love RS’s writing and loved this book. If I had one complaint, it would that I wish it was longer so I can bask the story for longer. 



I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things...everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things funny. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.

Until Cassandra Pierce crashes into his world. After a life-changing moment he never anticipated, he realizes that loving her is only the beginning.

 B.A. Wolfe is a girl with a passion for reading and writing, and lives in the good old state of Colorado with her husband (her biggest cheerleader), and her two crazy min pin fur babies. These days, her life is anything but calm, and there isn't one thing she'd want to change. B.A. spends all her free time either furiously typing stories on her laptop or happily reading through her endless TBR on her Kindle. Her list of favorites would be long enough to fill a book, but most would likely fall under the romance category. She is a sucker for a good love story that makes her cry, and an amazing book boyfriend who will melt her heart.
