On One Condition by K. Bromberg Release Blitz

Sometimes first loves deserve a second chance...

First loves deserve a second chance in an all-new small town, billionaire romance by New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg.

The requirement is ridiculous but simple. Spend two months in Cedar Falls and play the mayor’s games to ensure that The Retreat, Sharpe International’s newest resort, can open.

But I have a history with this small, Montana town. One I’d tried to forget but never could. Asher Wells. My Lavender Girl.

She’d had dreams and aspirations to leave Cedar Falls and make her mark on the world. So why is she still here, standing in front of me? And more importantly, why is she looking at me with hurt in her eyes when I was the one who‘d been forced to leave or else face the damning consequences of that night?

I have everything in life: money, success, an empire to run... everything except for one, very important thing. Her.

Fifteen years is a long time to wonder... what if. I’ll be damned if I leave town this time without her.

Are you ready to fall for the Sharpe brothers in K. Bromberg's sexy, contemporary, billionaire romance series? These books can all be read as standalones, but can be enjoyed as a series as well…

I loved the first book in this series and could not wait to see where Ledger's story would take him.

Ledger is the older triplet, and he is taken back 15 years to a place where he and his brothers spent their summers and the girl he lost. Asher Wells was his “Lavender Girl,” and the end of their relationship is one that will break your heart.

I found that while reading this story, I needed to know why neither wanted to tell the other what they knew about the night they last saw each other. It would have been hard on them but might have made understanding better and the hurt each felt somewhat easier.

This author has found a way to bring these triplets to life with each one getting their own story and I have fallen in love with both books so far, and I cannot wait to see how Ford's story goes. If you haven't read anything from this author yet, you can start with this series; they can be read in any order, so just start reading. I have loved everything I have read so far. I hope you love Asher and Ledger as much as I have.

M/F Second-Chance Romance

This is the second triplet's story. Ledger loved his summers. They were a time where he could be himself. He fell in love as a teenager and despite it also being his first heartbreak, Ledger has never forgotten his “Lavender Girl.”

Asher has had to make several tough decisions in her short life. Returning to take care of her grandparents (her parents were not in the picture) was not an easy decision, but Asher would not change it for the world. The farm has been in her family for generations and Asher is determined to see it through.

When Ledger is tasked with staying in Cedar Falls to complete his company's latest project, he does not expect to run into Asher. Ledger is used to city life and all it has to offer. But he also remembers his summers fondly here.

When truths come to light and the air is cleared, will Asher and Ledger still be standing? Can they rekindle what they lost?

This is a story about love, loss, sacrifice, and forgiveness. You'll want to cheer for the couple, but also be somewhat wary of the people in Cedar Falls. It's a quick read and I can't wait for the third brother to get his story.

Ledger and Asher have a lot of history. Some of it's good and some of it's bad.

 

 

It’s just her. It’s just me. It’s just us.

Sweet Home Alaska by Jennifer Snow

When old feelings resurface, will the truth bring them back together?

When old feelings resurface, will the truth bring them back together?

Skylar Beaumont never wanted to return to Alaska. Still, when duty calls, she can’t refuse. And, as a third-generation “Coastie” and the only female captain in the local coast guard, she has too much to prove. Being stationed in her hometown of Port Serenity isn’t ideal—but she’ll tough it out until her transfer goes through and she can move on to warmer waters. That’s the plan, at least, until she crashes into Dex Wakefield. Again.

Shocked to see his secret high school sweetheart after all this time, Dex can’t help but wonder if he should finally come clean. Skylar deserves to know the real reason why he abandoned the dream they’d shared—and broke her heart. But this small tourist town is home to one big grudge where their families are concerned… And leaving the past behind might be the only way Dex and Skylar will finally realize that their first love deserves a sweet second chance. 

Bonus Novella

In Jennifer Snow’s Love on the Coast, Rachel Hempshaw embarks on a themed cruise, aiming to dispel yet another local legend. But when her ship is caught up in a coast guard operation, one sexy officer makes it his mission to prove the existence of something that Rachel no longer believes in—real love.

M/F Second-Chance Romance

Skylar has coast guard in her blood. For generations, she and her family have been protecting those who get in trouble in Port Serenity. When she left for the academy, she knew this was her destiny. What she left behind though, was her heart.

Dex is from a family who is wealthy and despite maybe not working hard for their money, their family has held on to their wealth – sometimes at the detriment to the city they call home. In order to keep their town going, Dex's family bought out businesses and companies. In their minds, they were helping. But to some in town, Dex's family was just greedy.

Skylar and Dex had a romance when they were young that most people dream of. Despite the family tensions, they were going to make it. When an unexpected health issue arises, Dex will be left questioning his future and Skylar is just plain left confused.

Years later, Dex and Skylar are thrust together on rescues again; can they figure out if their love was one to span the decade or will their young love die young too?

The characters are pretty well developed. There is a lot of back and forth – somewhat tedious dialogue for a good portion of the middle of the book – but overall, the characters are relatable and enjoyable.

You'll fall in love with Dex and Skylar. They both want love in their life, both want a future they've always dreamed of. The question becomes if their futures still include each other or others.

The Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes by Cat Sebastian

Two bisexual disasters just doing their worst. The Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes by Cat Sebastian.

Cat Sebastian returns to Georgian London with a stunning tale of a reluctant criminal and the thief who cannot help but love her.

Marian Hayes, the Duchess of Clare, just shot her husband. Of course, the evil, murderous man deserved what was coming to him, but now she must flee to the countryside. Unfortunately, the only person she can ask for help is the charismatic criminal who is blackmailing her—and who she may have left tied up a few hours before…

A highwayman, con artist, and all-around cheerful villain, Rob Brooks is no stranger to the wrong side of the law or the right side of anybody’s bed. He never meant to fall for the woman whose secrets he promised to keep for the low price of five hundred pounds, but how could he resist someone who led him on a merry chase all over London, left him tied up in a seedy inn, and then arrived covered in her husband’s blood and in desperate need of his help?

As they flee across the country—stopping to pick pockets, drink to excess, and rescue invalid cats—they discover more true joy and peace than either has felt in ages. But when the truth of Rob’s past catches up to him, they must decide if they are willing to reshape their lives in order to forge a future together.

Erica☆☆☆☆
The Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes is the second installment in The Queer Principles of Kit Webb series. This can most certainly be read as a standalone.

Notice: For readers expecting an historical M/M romance that are upset about a M/F paring, this novel features a straight-passing queer couple who are both bisexual.

Freshly widowed (by her own hand), the Duchess of Clare, is being blackmailed by a con artist. With every breath Mariam takes, the reader is waiting for the other shoe to drop (the guillotine blade to drop). She is the most inept of criminals, but so is her blackmailer, Rob.

The blackmail letters begin to feel more like intimate love letters shared between admirers. Forced proximity, where Rob and Marian journey together, with the popular trope of only one bed available, sparks fly with experimentive sexual practices for this genre between a male-female coupling. Crimes are continuously committed, their ineptitude hazardously charming and entertaining.

A warm and humorous, feel-good historical romance between two delightful characters. Cat Sebastian is a go-to for queer historical romance, no matter the gender of the coupling.

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the first in a new series, and I am really looking forward to reading future installments, as I am already invested in this family. I love romances set in restaurants with broody, sexy chefs... so this was always going to be good plot-wise, but I am also a big fan of the very talented Catherine Bybee – which made this a definite win-win!

Brooke has to make a difficult decision when her father needs help, and her boyfriend refuses to be patient. She ups sticks and moves to San Diego – not back to her father's dreary hometown, but close enough to be there for him.

Luck (and a somewhat interfering possible mother-in-law) gives Brooke the opportunity to live in a small, top floor flat above an Italian restaurant. Now she finds that she is being adopted by the family, especially Luca's young daughter, Franny, and it feels good. Brooke and Franny have something profound in common, and that link between them is a beautiful bond. It is always important that along with the passion of the main characters, the child is not neglected – that is dealt with so organically here, that it enhances the progress towards love of Luca and Brooke.

Knowing that we are going to get more goodness, more sass, and more family from this new series is very gratifying!

A sexy, brother's best friend, roommates romance set in the world of the Wrights from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

When I moved in with my brother’s best friend, I thought it was temporary.

Weston Wright would be in LA with my brother for six months. I’d get the place to myself to get back on my feet. A perfect plan.

Until he comes back and asks me to stay.

I take one look at those beautiful baby blues, the dimpled smirk, and muscled arms, and say yes. I want to say yes to a lot more, but I’ve dated exactly one boy my entire life, and not only did he cheat on me with my bestie, now they’re engaged.

I don’t even know where to start with dating. But when I mention it to Weston, he offers to teach me how to date. No strings attached.

All I have to do is not fall in love with him… or let my brother find out.

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the fifth book in the Wright Vineyard series but makes a round dozen in the overall Wright series – so if you are a fan, you will love how many familiar faces appear in this book! I would recommend that you have read at least the prior four, but this is such a fun story, if you want to just dive in, it's a lot of fun regardless.

We left these two characters as newly minted housemates, but with Weston going to work in LA, so basically Nora has the house to herself, and no danger of romantic wishes on either part. Now West is back, and they slip into an easy friendship and an uneasy desire to be more. It is cute and engaging, as well as playing into the dynamics of the families that are key to this series. There are so many interwoven friendships and familial relationships that it is to an extent difficult to see how this would be any different – but Campbell and Hollins are still feeling guilty for rather abandoning their baby sister, and maybe feeling even more protective after the 'August' debacle. He, foolishly, continues to feature in Nora's life, but only makes more of an idiot of himself.

I love following the career successes and adventures of both Nora as a wedding planner, and Weston as he finally gets his big chance in the music business. West, particularly, has been missing the stability that is rare in the business, but even if he achieves it, then his home will be the road, not Lubbock, where Nora thrives in her role. Linde has an inspired solution to that problem, which comes about in such a natural way – very clever, fun, and ties in previous storylines perfectly.

As always, there are hints of new relationships to come and I for one am already looking forward to catching up with the gang and finding out more!


Erica☆☆☆☆
All the Wright Moves is the twelfth installment in the Wright series, but most importantly, this is the fifth installment in the Wright Vineyard series.

Can this novel be read as a standalone? No, not without confusion, as well as spoiling plot threads in prior novels that you may or may not wish to read in the future. The emotional payoff will be stronger if the reader has a connection to the cast of characters, not just to the main characters of this novel. If you don't wish to wade through a dozen Wright novels, reading the previous four Wright Vineyard novels are a must.

Brother's best friend, such a tasty plot device... and Nora feels exactly the same as I do. Nora has been sharing a house with Weston, but she is given a reprieve when he had to relocate for work, giving Nora full run of the house by herself. She can finally take a deep breath without Weston's intoxicating presence influencing her... or so she thought.

Gun-shy from a bad breakup and a friendship in tatters, Nora is hesitant to date. But now with Weston back in the house, with the promise of friendship and the intimacy of sharing a close bond with their friends and family, those sharp edges of her emotional walls are crumbling.

An all-around good person, Weston is easy to love and befriend, coaxing and bringing out a confident side to Nora, one she thought was destroyed after the "love of her life" broke her heart. Weston offers to be Nora's dating coach, falling head over heels when he promised himself he wouldn't, not when he has to return to LA.

Outside of the romance between Nora and Weston, the best portions of the novel feature the huge cast of endearing characters and how they interact with one another. Campbell brings some angst by pulling the "don't touch my sister" card, which was deliciously entertaining.

All the Wright Moves is a page-turner of warm and fuzzy feels, a great way to de-stress while being entertained. I highly recommend this novel, the series, as well as K.A. Linde's entire backlist to fans of contemporary romance.

Platonic Rulebook by Saxon James Blog Tour

I talk a big talk about wanting to be single, but my platonic rule book has gone out the window.

GRIFF

Walking away from my marriage was my idea of a fresh start.

My kid is in college, my ex-wife and I are on good terms… but being single in my forties is a world different to being single in my teens.

I’m thankful for my best friend, Heath. He’s got my back like he always does and is ready to take me out and show me how the bachelor life is done.

He was never supposed to show me literally.

After we wake up in bed together, I can’t stop looking at him differently, and one thing becomes abundantly clear.

I talk a big talk about wanting to be single, but my platonic rulebook has gone out the window.

HEATH

When my best friend comes to me for help post-divorce, I’m only too happy to impart my wisdom to him.

After all, Griffin isn’t my type, but even I can tell he’s a complete lumbersnack. Good with his hands, kind eyes, and a killer smile. All the guys and gals are gonna eat him alive.

But the more time we spend together, the less “not my type” he becomes. I’m the one who can’t get enough of him.

Neither of us is interested in a relationship, so what’s a little fun between friends?

We both know the score.

Shannan☆☆☆☆☆
Platonic Rulebook is the second installment of the Divorced Men's Club (DMC) series. It can be read as a standalone but reads better in the order the author intended.

Griff has been waiting for his son to go off to college to have the fresh start that's been coming for years. Griff and Poppy love each other but know the marriage is over. They agree to wait until their son, Felix, is in college to get divorced. Griff has known he's bisexual most of his life and was okay not exploring that side of himself until getting this fresh start and being with a man is all he can think of. But it's been almost twenty years since he's dated and a while since he's had sex. He feels so out of his element and so unprepared to start this part of his life he turns to his best friend, Heath, and the men of the DMC for advice.

Heath has always been in Griff's corner. They've been best friends for years and he'd do whatever he could be make Griff happy. Heath and Griff work together at the motel he and Poppy own together. With Poppy stepping away from the business, it puts Griff and Heath in an even closer situation. While trying to help Griff with his dating issues and business, Heath can't help but fall for his best friend. When the sexual tension between them is too much, they know where they stand and nothing with ruin their friendship. Or does one night change everything they thought they knew?

I loved everything about this read. Nothing reads better than friends to lovers and Saxon James writes this one spectacularly! The chemistry between Heath and Griff builds with every page until it can't be contained. I love the DMC and the friendship that exists between these men. I can't wait to see what's next for them.


Angie☆☆☆☆
I'm usually not one to read friends-to-lover stories a lot, but the blurb touched home for me since I'm recently divorced and in my forties. Griff and Heath are best friends. When Griff divorces, Heath helps him navigate life again. This was a sweet, passion-filled, low-angst story that just made my heart melt. These two guys were perfect for each other, and I loved going on their journey with them.

Trouble with the Cursed by Kim Harrison

Keep your friends close… and your enemies closer. Now Available. Trouble with the Cursed by Kim Harrison.

Rachel Morgan must keep her friends close—and her enemies closer—in the next Hollows novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison.

Rachel Morgan, witch-born demon, has one unspoken rule: take chances, but pay for them yourself. With it, she has turned enemies into allies, found her place with her demon kin, and stepped up as the subrosa of Cincinnati—responsible for keeping the paranormal community at peace and in line.

Life is... good? Even better, her best friend, Ivy Tamwood, is returning home. Nothing’s simple, though, and Ivy’s not coming alone. The vampires’ ruling council insists she escort one of the long undead, hell-bent on proving that Rachel killed Cincy’s master vampire to take over the city. Which, of course, Rachel totally did not do. She only transformed her a little.

With Rachel’s friends distracted by their own lives and problems, she reaches out to a new ally for help—the demon Hodin. But this trickster has his own agenda. In the end, the only way for Rachel to save herself and the city may be to forge a new understanding with her estranged demon teacher, Al. There’s just one problem: Al would sell his own soul to be rid of her...

Erica☆☆☆☆☆
Trouble with the Cursed is the sixteenth installment in The Hollows series. Can it be read as a standalone or out of series order? No, absolutely not. Not only would it cause massive confusion for the reader due to the ever-expanding, complex world building, but it would spoil major plots if the reader had a taste and decided to read the series. Dead Witch Walking is the introduction for our itchy witch, Rachel Morgan, along with her fellow beasties and cohorts.

As always, I savored the newest installment, beyond thrilled to be immersed into the world Rachel and company dwell, after the series had met its conclusion a few years ago. Reading slowly, this series is a homecoming and a meeting of long-lost friends rolled into one.

Rachel is riding herd on the supernatural community in Cincinnati, with all the headaches, responsibilities, and frustrations that ride shotgun.

For this reader, the anticipation of having Ivy back on the pages and in close proximity to Rachel had me turning the pages at a rapid rate, experiencing the chemistry between the partners/roomies/besties. The only problem, Ivy is followed closely by a vampire whose total focus is proving Rachel killed the previous Master of the City so she could take the power and rule the city herself.

Not only is the world building imaginative and original, the connections Rachel has with her friends and made-family is what has kept me coming back for more, rereading to catch the same feels every time. Rachel is a loyal, fierce, protective woman to have at your back, willing to do anything for the people she calls her own. This novel showcases Rachel's tenacity, loyalty, and devotion, along with the zany humor from Rachel failing almost as much as she succeeds, which makes her feel more human than witch-born demon. The sarcastic flavor of her tone of voice and inner monologue is as entertaining as it is endearing.

The plight of reading a novel by Kim Harrison, before I even get to the ending of the novel, I'm already hankering to reread the series from the start. I always crave the desire to immerse myself in the complex characters, riveting world building, the magic systems, and the rich universe that the author has created. Not to mention the fact that I'm still not over the loss of a character, a decade later. Harrison brings the feels.

This series is at the top of my favorites list, recommended to fans of Urban Fantasy. After a few more books and some work to be done, I'm diving back in, already having the first in the series loaded up for yet another reread.
