Behind the Bars by Brittainy C. Cherry


Release Date: December 7th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Designer: Kandi Steiner


Photographer: Perrywinkle Photographer


When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.

The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.

Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.

And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.

She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.

Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

From USA Today bestselling author Jillian Dodd comes the eleventh book in the addictive Keatyn Chronicles series. Discover a breathless fairy-tale romance with swoon-worthy characters set in a glittering celebrity world. Fans of reality TV will devour this pulse-pounding, sexy Hollywood drama.
Follow the lives and loves of those who work at Captive Films:
Riley Johnson — Captive Films’ CEO and millionaire playboy is hot, privileged, and seriously single. He’s got it all—a brand new jet, exotic cars, a luxury penthouse, and a different aspiring actress (or two) in his bed every night. His life is perfect until the only girl he ever loved walks back into it, causing him to wonder if he truly has it all.

Keatyn Douglas — Hollywood’s sweetheart and owner of Captive Films leads a chaotic, glamorous life. But running a successful film studio, writing scripts, and her own acting career leave little time for the things she dreams of, like marrying the man she loves and having babies. When drama starts at work, she may decide to give it all up for life out of the fast lane.
Dawson Johnson — The dark and dreamy marketing consultant joins Captive to escape his past. For the last two years, his sole focus has been on caring for his adorable daughters after tragedy struck their lives. He comes to Captive looking for a fresh start and, if all goes well, he might find a lot more than that in Hollywood.
Knox Daniels — Considered the sexiest man alive by a certain magazine, the sentiment is echoed by the actor’s adoring fans. While romance abounds in the roles he plays, he’s convinced he’ll never find his own happily ever after—until he meets a woman who just might change that. 
Shelby Benson — The beautiful cocktail waitress and wanna-be actress struggles to make ends meet. A chance encounter with Riley Johnson is her lucky break and the golden ticket to everything she’s ever dreamed of—fame, power, money, sex, and love.
Written soap-opera style with multiple points of view, you can expect lots of drama, sex, and tabloid-worthy events.

Christy's Review: 
“description"/
 
   
“When you surround yourself with the people you love, great things can happen.”

I remember reading Stalk Me over 5 years ago when it was first released. I was enamored with Keatyn Douglas and I couldn’t wait for more of her. With each book, I loved these characters more. I’ve watched them grow from high schoolers, to adults with their own families. It’s bittersweet to see a series you love so dearly come to an end, but I think Jillian ended these books in a fantastic way!

This book follows Keatyn and Aiden, Riley, Dawson, Dallas, Vanessa, Knox, and a slue of other characters. IFLY Keatyn and Aiden and I love reading about them, but what I loved most about this is that my boy, Riley was redeemed. The last few books I was questioning his character and the man he became, but it’s safe to say I love him again!

These stories have lots of drama, but they also have lots of heart. Love, especially, was a heartfelt story. I feel like everyone got the ending they needed, and you get closure. I fell in love with these characters all over again.

If I had to choose one word to describe these stories I would use the word ADDICTIVE. Once you start them, you won’t want to stop. I love these books so much and I highly recommend them! As sad as I am they’re over, theres always re-reads! Love is a wonderful ending to a beloved series of mine! It’s fun, emotional, sexy, and I loved it!!!

She’s bad at love, but he’s even worse…


Karina Halle did an amazing job with this book! Bad at Love is one of the best friends to lovers books I’ve read in the longest time. Marina and Laz are fantastic characters and I loved their story to pieces!

Mariana and Lazarus have been friends for a long time, and even though they have loads of chemistry, they’ve never taken their relationship past friendship. Why? Because they’re both bad at love. Horrible at it, in fact. Mariana can’t get passed the third date to start a relationship, and Laz is a serial monogamist jumping from girlfriend to girlfriend getting bored after a few weeks or months.



Laz has this great idea… Mariana and Laz date each other to see what they’re doing wrong and why things aren’t working out for them. Their dates were so much fun. They both had me laughing so hard and I adored them! I loved their lighthearted friendship, but even more than that, I loved when they started to really let each other in.

 

   
“Let me in. Let me be here for everything, all the good, all the bad. All your light and all your dark.”

 


Laz is one of those heroes who I couldn’t help but love. Honestly, he was a great guy and had a huge heart. He wanted something more, something real, he just needed the right person to bring that out. Mariana was a hoot! One of the funniest heroines I’ve read in a while. Seriously, she made me laugh out loud several times! And I loved her bees!

Bad at Love is an entertaining and enjoyable read that is full love humor, romance, friendship, and steam. Halle kept a smile on my face the entire time! This book was a lot of fun and one I’d recommend to all!

 

   
“Love is our biggest adventure.”

Sex, Not Love Cover Reveal Vi Keeland

We are thrilled to bring you the next standalone novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Vi Keeland. SEX, NOT LOVE will release on January 15th, 2018

     
Model: Fabian Castro
Photographer: Rafael Catala
Cover designer: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards. We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction. I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me. We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number. I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home. I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems. Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose? Nothing, I thought. It’s just sex, not love. But you know what they say about the best laid plans…   ADD TO GOODREADS

On the Way to You by Kandi Steiner


Genre: Contemporary Romance


Publishing Date: November 16th, 2017


What makes you happy?

That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.

And then, I got in his car.

It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.

We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers.

One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.

Discovering his journal changed everything.

I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.

I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.

Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could.

Christy's Review: 

4.5 stars!

description

Kandi Steiner is one of those authors that gives me all the feels when reading. I love her words. This book is different from anything else she’s written. It’s emotional, powerful, and the writing is stunning!

 
What makes you happy?

If someone asked you ‘What makes you happy?’ right this moment, could you answer them honestly? Not some superficial answer, but true happiness. Cooper couldn’t. When Emery Reed spoke those four words to her, she couldn’t answer him. Cooper seems happy where she’s at, but she’s not. She craves adventure and has dreamed about getting out of Alabama to go to the northwest. When Emery offers her a ride, as strange as it may seem, she goes. It’s time to take a risk and live a little.

 
“Life isn’t supposed to be safe,” she added with a laugh. “If it was, they wouldn’t call it living. They’d just call it existing. And you’ve existed long enough, baby girl. It’s time to live.”


I love road trip books! In my opinion, there aren’t enough of them! This was not your normal road trip book, however. Emery and Cooper’s journey was much different. It’s one of those books you need to read for yourself so I won’t delve into the plot of the book. Just know the romance is gorgeous, but it’s so much more than that!

“I want that kind of love that leaves you breathless when it hits you.”

 


description

On the Way to You is a romance, but it’s also a story of self discovery. It’s a book about love, loss, friendship, and it battles hard topics like mental health. Kandi wrote this topic so realistically. If you have ever struggled with severe depression, or know someone who has, you will be able to relate to Emery. Cooper is a beautiful soul. She loves with all she is and she tries to be understanding and helpful. Their story isn’t the hearts and flowers, conventional romance. It’s unique to them and it’s beautiful.

Kandi Steiner. You have a way with words. I’m so glad you wrote this book. I think it’s a book that needs to be read. It’s a story that will stay with me. This book broke my heart, but also healed it in a beautiful way. If you’re looking for a romance that goes deeper than the traditional romance, one that will touch your soul, make you think and make you feel, pick up On the Way to You!

“You’re the first person to do that. You’re the first person to make me feel alive, Cooper. In a long time.” He shrugged. “Maybe ever.”

Wells Lemiere knew the moment he saw Matty Haverbrooke, he had to have him. Matty was quiet, he was talented, he was beautiful, and Wells couldn’t stay away.

As the youngest and most talented son of the NHL Commissioner, Matty had found the burden of family expectations almost too heavy to carry on even his broad shoulders. He had no intention of getting involved in a relationship with Wells. But the heart he’d given up for dead had other ideas.

Their affair was intense and overwhelming, but when Matty couldn’t bring himself to come out and admit he wanted a public future with the man he loved, Wells had no choice but to honor his vow to live openly…and leave Matty behind.

But then he learns Wells is marrying another, and Matty knows he can't let that happen. Can he throw down his gloves and embrace his future with both hands? Or will he pull the door to his closet shut once more?

Christy's Review:

“description"/

Two-Man Advantage is Toni Aleo’s first MM book and is a stand-alone, but if you’ve read her Assassins series, you’ve already met Wells Lemiere and Matty Haverbrooke. Since their scene in Wren and Jensen’s book, I’ve been dying for this story! I thought Aleo did a great job with it.

Wells and Matty are both NHL players. They’re both great guys. And they’ve been together, in secret, for a while now. The reason? Matty is still in the closet. His dad is the commissioner of the NHL and he knows his family won’t accept him the way he is. He’s spent so many years hiding it, he’s terrified to let it be known. That’s not working for Wells. In fact, it takes Wells and Matty breaking up for Matty to decide that Wells is worth everything- even coming out for.

Things aren’t easy for this couple. They have a lot of obstacles against them, but they love each other fiercely and can overcome it all. I love the support they did have. Wells friends/family are the best, and I adore Matty’s sister Avery (you may recognize her from the Bellevue Bullies series). Wells and Matty were so sweet together. They were also hot together! Toni did a great job with the MM scenes!

I love a romance where the main couple overcomes the odds. The odds are stacked against Matty and Wells, but it only shows that their love is strong and enough to endure it all. I adored this story!
