I had it all.

Blog Tour, Review & #Giveaway: #ThisMuchIsTrue by @KatherineOwen01

This Much Is True by Katherine Owen 
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Fate brings them together
Fame & lies keep them apart
One truth remains…


She’s become the Paly High girl with the most tragic story…

At 17, Tally Landon just wants to graduate and leave for New York to pursue ballet. Her best friend Marla convinces her to attend one last party—a college party—where she can be among strangers and evade the whisperings about her heartbreaking loss of her twin that follows her everywhere she goes. She meets Lincoln Presley, Stanford’s famous baseball wonder and has a little fun at his expense—when she lies about her age and who she really is—intent on being someone else for the night and escaping her tragic story.


His only focus is baseball, but he can’t forget the girl he saved on Valentine’s Day…

At 22, Lincoln Presley’s star is on the rise—about to finish at Stanford and expected to be taken early in Major League Baseball’s upcoming draft—his cousin’s party serves as a welcome distraction. But then, he sees the girl from Valentine’s Day that he saved from that horrific car accident and can’t quite hide his disappointment when she appears to look right through him and not remember him at all. He vows to learn her name at least before he leaves. What’s the harm in getting to know this girl? What’s the worst that can happen?

They share this incredible connection, but fate soon tests these star-crossed lovers in all kinds of ways…
And yet, despite the lies being told to protect the other, and the trappings of fame that continually separate them, and in lieu of the deception by those they’ve come to trust the most; one truth remains.


This much is true.

Review

4 Devastating, Gut Wrenching, What in the holy masochistic hell possessed me to read this stars!

She seems to have taken my soul. I’m going to have to figure out a way to get it back.

Sweet mother of fucking feels! I mean what in the effing fuck did I just read?!!! I feel like I’ve been run over by the angst bus, which then backed up and ran me over again for good measure. Then when I was lying there all helpless, the Feels truck ran me the fuck over and left me a whimpering, blubbering, emotional fucking mess in dire need of hard alcohol! I mean OH. MY. GAWD.

To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t even sure how to rate this book. I equal parts loved it and hated it at the same time. What an emotional roller coaster. Actually, scratch that. This book is like a horrific train wreck, you just know what you find will be brutal as hell but you can’t seem to stop yourself from looking anyway. It is 400+ pages of angst, hearbreak, drama, and gutwrenching moments. I remember hoping, praying, almost promising the devil my soul for just ONE FUCKING HAPPY MOMENT! And you know what? Didn’t get it. Nope.

What I did get was a brilliantly written, emotionally gripping and poignant story.

LIFE CAN CHANGE in as little of fifteen seconds. I know this.
Fifteen seconds.
An SUV clips my car, kills my sister, and changes me and my life forever.

Thirty seconds.
The time it takes for a stranger to lift me up and carry me away and save me from the burning wreckage.
Thirty seconds.

One night.
The time it takes to fall in love with Lincoln Presley and forge promises that neither of us can keep.
One night.

Thirty seconds.
In thirty seconds, a heart can break.

You do not get eased in to the story. Not even close. It starts with a tragedy and grips you from the very beginning, refusing to let go of your heart and emotions until the very end. I was’t even sure if I would survive the whole book.

Valentine’s Day may be a happy day for most people, but for Tally all that day signifies is loss. It is the day her life forever changed when she lost her twin sister in a horrific car accident. Tally always saw her twin, Holly, as the better half, the sun to her moon. And now that she’s gone, there’s no more sun in her life. So she focuses on the one constant in her life, ballet

But fate has a different plan when Tally meets the handsome rising baseball star, Lincoln Presley, and everything changes.
I will not give you a sum up, because what you need to know the book synopsis gives you. Anything else would be a spoiler, and this is a book that needs to be experienced fully. What I can tell you is prepare yourself for one gutwrenching, emotional, devastating, tear filled and painful read…

The amount of devastating circumstances and events that Tally experiences it’s a wonder to me how she even functions. Just when you think that’s it, it can’t possibly get any worse…BAM! Some more shit happens.

The story is told through several years starting from when Tally is 17 and spanning to her at 21. It’s a story of poor circumstances, unlucky timing, and bad decisions. But beyond all the doom and gloom there’s also a story of a one-in-a-lifetime love.

This is not a book for everyone. It was depressing as hell for over 90%. I was equal parts unable to put it down and kicking my own ass for even reading it.

I wouldn’t label this as a YA book (Not really sure why it’s tagged that way on some sites). The only thing YA about it is Tally’s age when it starts. If you’re expecting a steamy NA book, well you can take that expectation and shove it where the sun don’t shine because you will not be getting that either. And for a self-proclaimed smut addict like me, that was one tough pill to swallow. However, the story itself was enough to keep me turning the pages.

I want to tell you that I absolutely loved it, and a part of me did. But then there’s another part of me that was screaming ENOUGH ALREADY! How much more shit can happen to this poor girl? It was almost too much.

If you enjoy emotional and poignant reads that are smut light but will stay with you for a long while, definitely give this book a shot. The writing was some of the best I’ve read. But is this a book I see myself ever going back to? Hell NO! As a matter of fact, I plan on submersing myself in mindless smut just to try and get my feels right again. And when smut won’t do? There’s always my other fix all

LOST IN LOVE
An Adult Contemporary Romance
By Bestselling Author Kate Perry
Summerhill, #2

Amazon | Kobo | iTunes

Portia Summerhill feels like a loser.
Thirty-something, jobless, and living at home… How could she not? Next to her accomplished sisters, Portia’s achievements—or lack thereof—are that much more noticeable.
The one thing Portia can claim is expert knowledge on antiques and her ancestry, and in a moment of serendipity, the perfect job lands in her lap: curator at the Museum of British Peerage. There’s one caveat: the museum won’t hire her unless she brings the family jewels with her. Or, more specifically, the infamous Summerhill tiara.
Except a cowboy hotelier stands between her and her tiara. Jackson Waite needs help getting his newest posh hotel launched and, luckily for Portia, he’s willing to make a trade. If she helps him meet the deadline for his new resort, he’ll give her the tiara. Only, the more time she spends with Jackson, the more Portia wonders if she wants the tiara or the man keeping it from her.

Excerpt

“The interior of the elevator was reflective and she checked herself in the reflective surface. Her right stocking was sagging the tiniest bit. She still had a dozen floors, so she lifted her skirt high to secure it to her garter better.

Only the elevator stopped and the doors opened without warning. She glanced up, her skirt high up around the tops of her thighs.

A man walked in without hesitation. He was the stereotype of an American, from the tip of his cowboy hat down to the heels of his cowboy boots. As if that didn’t make his nationality clear, the way he stared at her thighs was the deciding factor. A proper British man would have averted his eyes. This man eyed her like he wanted to take a bite out of her.

“I didn’t know women still wore those things,” he drawled as he leaned against the opposite wall.

“They’re called garters, and of course women still wear them.” She fixed her stocking and pulled her skirt down as quickly as possible, trying not to be distracted by the way he looked in his jeans. She’d never seen a man fill them out so… prodigiously. And his boots intrigued her. They were well loved, obviously a favorite pair.”

“Hello.” Her heart hammered. Lowering the books, she tried not to stare at him but it was hard not to. He looked so virile next to the frivolously carved furniture. He wore a leather jacket, a sweater with a T-shirt underneath, well-worn jeans, and his boots, of course. On his head was a cowboy hat. She looked behind him to see if he was being followed by a steed.

Review: With or Without Him by Barbara Elsborg

“The most dangerous refuge could be his lover’s arms.”

Everyone has at least one deep-seated fear. For Tyler, it’s being in debt. He’s so desperate to get out and stay out of it, he’ll do almost anything-including selling his body at Saturday night sex parties.

But he refuses to open his mind to anyone, especially the men paying to use him however they want. The only time he’s truly happy is during the week at college, when he can escape into his music.

The moment Haris sees Tyler playing piano at a concert, he falls hard, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make the guy his. Even if it means-for the first time in his life-opening his wallet as wide and desperate as his heart.

20,000 to live with a good-looking guy for four months? How can Tyler resist the chance to ditch the sex party scene for good? But neither man realizes how much they’re risking. And when outside forces close in, ready to destroy them, the trickiest part about the next four months could be just surviving.

Warning: Contains a “for hire” bad boy with a filthy mouth, an awkward guy with a penchant for BDSM, a hypochondriac butler who won’t shut up, a dog called Alcide, and a lot of hot and dirty M/M sex.

4.5 Sweet baby jebus that was HAWT stars

I’m paying for your time, your exclusivity, your undivided attention. I’m a busy guy. I know what I want and I want you.

So what can I tell you after finishing this book?

Is in my pants. Sweet mother of cock but this book was hot. Tyler, Haris, Tyler and Haris

Books like this sometimes make me wish I was a gay man. What? Too much?

But I digress…

Tyler is in debt and is desperate enough to do some extreme things to get out of them. So what if he sells his body to whoever pays to attend the very exclusive Saturday night sex parties if they will help him pay off his school loans? Everyone has a price. But his deep-rooted fear of being in debt dates back to one of his darkest childhood memories, and it keeps him going.

Tyler doesn’t let anyone get close. They may get his body for the night, but never anything else. His focus, emotion, and passion all go towards his one and only love, his music.

When Haris first spots Tyler playing the piano at a concert, he knows he has to have him. So when he follows him after the event and rescues him from a BDSM scene gone bad at one of the parties Tyler attend, he knows just how to hook him. 20,000 plus 10,000 for clothes for his time, his body, and his exclusivity.

Tyler sees a way to get out of his debt and to slake his lust for the gorgeous Haris, so he agrees and then it’s a whole lot of

I love Barbara Elsborg’s writing. I’ve been a fan since my first book by her An Ordinary Girl. Her books are always the perfect mix of suspense, mystery, quirky humor, broken yet endearing characters and lots and lots of super HOT SEX.

And this book was certainly no exception. Just add in a sarcastic and hilarious butler, and it was perfect. I was riveted from the very first chapter. The mystery and suspense sucked me in, and the connection and sexual chemistry between Tyler and Haris just sealed the deal. I didn’t want this book to end.

Of course what’s a Barbara Elsborg book without a little…or a lot of angst and drama. And this book really delivered on that end. I loved the angst for the majority of the book. It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for the assholes, and Haris had his moments. Truthfully, there were times where he would do something that left me feeling a little

You know what they say about assumptions right, Haris? Maybe you should take note. Then you wouldn’t continue doing it again, and again, and again, and AGAIN!

Then there was the last 10% of the book. Holy drama overload, batman. I think I may have reached my quota for drama tolerance at 85%. We had a man out for revenge, someone threatening Tyler’s life, someone coming after Haris, some drama between Haris and Tyler. I think I was at my limit when I hit the last few chapters.

And then Haris just goes and does something and I was PISSED. I mean really pissed. I’m talking

PISSED

But then alls well that ends well. He did make up for it in the end, and I was really satisfied with the way he did it. So if you’re a fan of super steamy, well written MM romance filled with action, mystery and suspense, I highly recommend this book.

Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway: A Fighting Chance by A.J. Sand

A FIGHTING CHANCE
By A.J. Sand
New Adult/Adult Romantic Suspense
Jesse Chance is a bastard.
And that’s all he heard his entire life growing up once news got out that he was the illegitimate child of womanizing ex-con, Henry Chance.
Stuck in Glory, Texas, a town too small to escape the sins of his parents, Jesse turned into exactly what everyone expected him to be: a lover of liquor and women, and so good with his fists, he became a teenage champion of the secret underground fighting rings that float around the South, while doubting the only people who ever believed he could be more, his ailing mother, and his girlfriend, Drew Hallisay.
But determined to make his mother’s dying wish come true, he enrolled in a college on the East Coast, far away from his past. Jesse Chance is reborn into a new life, and set on keeping Glory, Texas–and Henry Chance–in his rear view.
Until a visit from his father in the middle of the night changes everything.
Forced to return to Glory to prevent a tragedy, Jesse is soon back on the fighting circuit with Drew’s help and facing the history he was so desperate to escape, the part of him he would prefer to hide.
As he slips back into his old ways–Henry Chance’s ways–he finds himself torn between the guy he was and the one he’s been struggling to become. And in a world dead set on betting against you, can you ever really overcome your past… or your destiny?

Review

4 Gripping and Gritty Stars
We’re all walking on the edge of chaos, knowing full well it won’t take much to fall over.

Holy shit. I mean HOLY SHIT! I did not see this book coming. Let me warn you now

of reading that is. Because this book is…I’m not even sure how to best describe it
INTENSE
UNAPOLOGETIC
AND GRITTY AS HELL!

Seem to cover it nicely, because DAMN what a ride!
Now if you’re at all like me, you may have take a look at that droolworthy cover and assumed what you’ll be getting here is a steamy NA story about a sexy fighter, right? Well fuck that! Because that’s not even close to what you’ll be getting here.
This book was fantastic, but I can tell you that it’s not for everyone. So if you’re uncomfortable with some intense and descriptive violence, I’ll suggest grabbing your teddy bear and cowering in the corner, because this book is not for you my friend.
Just look at what the author herself wrote about this book:
– Standalone, not even remotely part of a series (I probably won’t ever write another series).

– No cliffhanger! Wooo! 

– Might be a wee bit intense for some in terms of the violence.

So excited to move away from contemporary romance and AFC is quite a way to move! 😉 It’s TOTALLY different from the others but, truthfully, I’ve never written a traditional contemporary romance. 

I can’t do it. I’m evil, I guess. 

It’s way gritty, it’s way grungy, and I let loose because I needed to. It won’t be an easy ride because that’s not how I operate. I decide a long time ago that if I was going to write an underground fighting book, it wasn’t going to be sugarcoated. 

It’s a huge study in human nature, too, so if you like books where good is good and bad is bad, this won’t work for you. Graham Greene once said human nature isn’t black and white, it’s black and grey, and I STRONGLY believe this. 
So, if you’re looking for rainbows and kittens and bunnies. They aren’t here. 😉
It’s still longity-long because, well, it’s me and that’s how I roll.

Can’t say we didn’t warn you. So let’s move on…
If you read the blurb, then you have probably about 1/18th of what this book is about. I could tell you more, but where’s the fun in that? This is something that needs to be experienced without any spoilers. But I can gloss over the edges for you, just a little, because I’m nice like that 🙂

The thing about lines? They stop being dangerous the moment you cross them; they stop mattering too. And instead of admitting that, you just set another limit, raise the stakes, draw another boundary for your sins, and find a way to justify your actions.

Jesse Chance used to be a fighter back in high school days, and a damn good one, making pretty good money in illegal fights out of the local farm his friend’s parents own. But that was before he promised his dying mother that he will make something better of himself. Before he left his small town, girlfriend, and everything of his life behind to start new. Now he’s in college, he has new friends, a new girl, and his fighting days are behind them. That is until a visit from his father flips his life upside down.

Jesse wants nothing to do with his father, it’s not like he’s been a resounding presence in his life. Being the bastard son in a small town never got him anything but grief. But in order to prevent a tragedy, Jesse agrees to help the one man he hoped never to have to see again. Forced to go back to the town he used to call home and back to his old way, Jesse knows that nothing good can come of this, but he does know that his fists will earn him the cash that he so desperately needs.

When he runs into the girl that used to own his heart and he walked away from, all the feelings come rushing back. But it’s too late now. Now Jesse is with someone else, and Drew is engaged. But can old feelings really disappear, or do they simply fester until reaching the surface?

All I’ve ever done is carve out a space for you inside me, Jesse. And I’m afraid it’s gotten so big, it’s going to eat me alive one day.”

This book takes the reader into the dark and violent world of underground fighting. There’s no rules, no safety net, and anything goes. There were moments that even I found myself cringing. Intense is an understatement.

This is not a sunshine, rainbows and butterflies book. It’s grungy, it’s gritty, and holy fuck does the author not hold back on the details. In the middle of the chaos that is the main story, we also get the love story of Drew and Jesse. I have to admit that me and my puny brain struggled a bit with the names at first. I mean, Jesse I can get used to, but when the heroine has a masculine name while the hero has a female sounding one…well…it took some getting used to.

I devoured this book from beginning to end. I had to know what happens. There were so many twists and turns I thought I’d get whiplash. It’s not light reading when the Spanish Cartel is involved. Then the twist at the end…HOLY FUCKING SHIT! I didn’t see that coming at all. I was flabbergasted.  I couldn’t believe what was happening. I’m pretty sure I was sitting there with my jaw hanging open, catching flies for a good 10 minutes staring at my kindle.

The love story was steamy, and you could definitely feel the tension and sexual chemistry between the H/h. I loved that the author really made you burn for them together. There was no insta anything. Their relationship was one bumpy fucking road. So would I recommend this book? Hell yes. But be prepared to get on to one hell of a roller coaster ride. This is not a book for the faint of heart, but it’s certainly worth the risk.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go purge some of the images from this book with some mindless smut, or else I’ll never recover. And I thank you

Excerpt

I walked inside and placed my keys on the bar top, and a few minutes later, Finnley entered.

I leaned against the kitchen counter and smiled.

“You shouldn’t f*ck me with your eyes. I’ve already warned you about that.”

“I’m pretty sure I can do whatever I want.” I walked towards him, unbuttoned his suit jacket, and loosened his tie. “You’re not the boss of me anymore.”

He wrapped my hair around his fingers and tugged my head back to look into his eyes. “I will always be the boss of you, Ms. Downs.”

I loved it when he called me that. I loved it when he was rough. Lust and love mixed and created a crazy potion of emotions.

Finn’s lips collided with mine, and the intensity of him forced me to unbutton his pants and scoot them off his hips; then he yanked my hair just a little harder.

“I’m not your dildo, Ms. Downs. I’ve got an appointment at the office in the next thirty minutes. Shouldn’t take long. Meet me there in an hour?”

“I cannot believe you’re denying me.”

“You’ll learn that I do whoever and whatever I want, whenever I want.”

I crossed my arms and gave him my best ‘go to hell’ look. What a tease. He buttoned and zipped his pants and then looked at me with a raised eyebrow and pulled me into him.

He nibbled on my earlobe, and then whispered, “will you ever stop driving me crazy?”

I pulled away from him, looked at his mouth, and then into his green eyes.

“Not happening, ever.”

Words make the world go round. I love to write, travel, and sing really loud at the top of my lungs in the shower. Sweet love stories (along with the dirty ones) make me gush. I am firm believer that a person can never have too many cats or cups of coffee, and that the F word is necessary.

Forget the beach! Give me a gel pen, a stack of blank paper, and beautiful mountains!

Exerpt: Beautiful Mistake

Never in her life had she experienced anything like this. Sure, she’d felt instant lust before. If that had been all this was, she could’ve ignored it. She knew how to turn it off. This wasn’t a simple case of horniness. It was more and that scared her.

He parted his mouth slightly and dragged in a deep breath. A shudder wracked his frame. He bent his head so his breath warmed her neck. “Gods, Lena. You tempt me.”

His voice reached inside her and seemed to ignite the fire that had been simmering since she woke. She panted and her rough breath stirred the strands of his hair. The ends brushed her skin and tendrils of awareness whipped through her body to settle low in her belly.

Confusion settled over her, made the needs surging within her worse. She didn’t understand what was wrong with her. She wanted to fuck him, hold him close and run away from him all at the same time. She linked her arms around his neck. “Devin, please. I need,” she groaned, her frustration mounting. “I don’t know what I need.”

“Sssh, baby, I know. I’ll take care of you.”

He nudged at her thighs with a knee. She opened them, allowing him to settle there, the hard ridge pressing into her proof of his desire. Those large hands that had terrified her last night cupped her face. He slowly leaned in and kissed her, gently seeking entrance, not forcing her. The soft brush of his lips over hers focused her wayward emotions and settled the crazy urges. The worry over why she hovered on the verge of combusting faded in the face of his attentions. She moaned and he slid inside, claiming her mouth as his with deep sweeping thrusts of his tongue.

While she enjoyed men, none of her lovers ever kissed like this one. Devin explored and licked the recesses of her mouth. Their tongues stroked and he guided her into a dance that felt as intimate as sex. She hesitantly reached up and touched the strong line of his jaw. No stubble roughened it, just the hot skin of a powerful man. Needing more, she caressed his cheek, memorizing the smooth contours.

She slid her fingers to the column of his neck. His pulse beat steadily under her fingertips. A low growl crawled up his throat. The vibrations from that primal sound resonated against her palm, its echo seeming to skip through her veins. Her heartbeat took on an erratic rhythm. Tremors wracked her limbs, an emotion settling over her she couldn’t explain. It left her wary. The desire she understood, even welcomed. It was the longing to hear that rumbly sound in her ear every day she didn’t like.

The worry came back, stronger than before. Devin was conditioning her, making her need him. That was the only explanation for why she couldn’t resist him. She did not need a man and she especially did not need a shifter. With every passing moment, however, he seemed to slip further into her mind, pushing all the important stuff out.

She broke the kissed and shoved at his shoulders. “This isn’t what I need.”

He smiled, the tips of fangs glinting in the soft spill of sunshine across the bed. “Wanna bet?”
