 Title:  Feels Like FallingFeels Like Falling - ebook

Author: Elle Keating

Release Date: November 13, 2018

Publisher: Self-published

Series: Dangerous Love #5

Genres: Contemporary Romance

 

Synopsis:

 

Luke McGinnis is the responsible, quiet older brother. The loving son who enjoys working side-by-side with his father at the winery they co-own. At twenty-nine years old, Luke is a success story, the rags-to-riches kind. That’s what people see. Not the ugly past he fights to keep buried… a past that keeps him from really living.

Peyton Matthews is a household name. As a model, her face has been on the covers of countless magazines and she now has more money than she will ever know what to do with. But that smile she flashes for the photographers and the media is just an illusion. That pretty package everyone envies has been her armor, her protection, and she doesn’t want anyone to find a chink in it… especially not the winery owner who looks at her like he knows the dark secrets she keeps.

FEELS LIKE FALLING Excerpt

Copyright © 2018 Elle Keating

Peyton looked back at the bar, but Luke was nowhere to be found. Pissed, she continued her trek to the bathrooms anyway and was just about to enter the door marked MNA when someone grabbed her hand and pulled her down a hallway and into some back room which housed a pay phone and a rack full of coats. Like the rest of the tavern, the lighting wasn’t great, but she was able to focus on the man who still gripped her hand and stared at her like he was either going to yell at her or take her against the wall in the most primal of ways.

“What are you doing here?” she asked.

“Who is he?” Luke asked through gritted teeth.

It pissed her off that he completely ignored her question and asked her one instead, one that truly left her perplexed. “Who are you talking about?”

“The man who felt it was okay to touch you here.” He released her hand, but she instantly felt his fingertips at the small of her back.

The heat of his touch made her anger fade, at least for the time being and she said, “He’s a friend of Walt’s.”

“Are you leaving with him?” His eyes darkened and he drew closer. His hand fell away from the small of her back, which thankfully broke the trance her body seemed to be under and her fury was reignited.

Who the hell did he think he was? She didn’t owe him anything. Not even responses to questions that made her hot and furious at the same time.

“Did you follow me here?” she asked. Her voice shook a little, but it was better than submitting to his questions.

“Yes. Now, are you going home with him?”

“Do you have any idea how messed up that is? That you fucking followed me…again?”

His jaw clenched and he looked away. Peyton was prepared to continue, to lay into him and tell him that he was a stalker and could go to hell, but then he glanced back at her and she saw the shame in his eyes. “Yeah…it is fucked up. I’m…fucked up,” he said.

She wasn’t even going to try to pretend that his words didn’t shock her. He knew what he was doing wasn’t normal. That he wasn’t normal. Luke roughly raked a hand through his hair as he paced the small coatroom. He reminded her of a caged animal, one that was anxious and willing to chew through the bars to get free. Shame, worry, pain, fear, confusion. He seemed consumed by each emotion all at once and all she could do was watch him suffer. What happened to him? Why did he look so…broken?

Before she could ask, Luke shook his head, told her he was sorry and left.

Book Review: Quick Fall

QF_BadgeTitle: Quick FallQuickFall_500pix

Author: Michelle Dayton

Published: October 8, 2018

Publisher: Self-published

Series: Tracy Brothers #2

Genres: Contemporary Romance

 

Synopsis:

 Justin Tracy, the perennial life of the party, is used to being teased by his friends about his success with the ladies.  Not that he’ll ever get serious with one.  Why should he?  His life is absolutely perfect the way it is. But at his brother’s bachelor party, a drunken bet about his womanizing skill gets a little out of control. Before he knows it, his friends have invited his new tenant – a woman he’s never even met – to go to his brother’s wedding with him.

Single mom Maddy Trainor has just moved back to Chicago, ready to reclaim her life and conquer the city.  Maddy’s determined to get her new business off the ground and build a happy home for her son, Teddy.   She didn’t expect a gorgeous landlord, but ogling Justin Tracy is definitely a bonus to her new apartment.

Justin intends to apologize to Maddy for the out-of-the-blue wedding invitation and get gone, but his new neighbor turns out to be funny, whip-smart, and sexy as hell.  Why not take her to the wedding for real?  Just as friends, of course.  To Maddy, the wedding – one night of champagne and dancing with a self-admitted Peter Pan – sounds like amazing no-strings fun.  But the sparks that blaze between the two of them can’t be contained to one night.  And two people who think they have life figured out are about to realize they know nothing about love …

 My Review

Oh, you cannot even believe how much I loved this book! Yes, it does have some very small issues I am not quite comfortable, from a reviewer point of view, but now several days after finishing it, I cannot remember what I did not like. I only remember the feelings, I only remember the good stuff. So that makes it very close to a five star read.

So what do we have here that makes this book so good? We have Maddy Trainor, a single mom to a very smart kid I might add, who has put herself on hold even form a young age to give her son the proper attention and education. Back to Chicago, she struggles to start her own business and reacquaint herself with a city that was once her scene. Then we have Justin Tracy – one of the most eligible bachelors, always with a different girl, smart, charming and very attractive – who leases his downstairs apartment to the brave woman forced to raise his child alone. A bet brings them together, as friends and neighbors and through that bet, he invites her to his brother’s wedding, just to help out her starting business.

The premises are interesting and some may argue that they are even common. But they have a relationship based on honesty in all aspects but one – love and its consequences. Because they both have been burnt once and don’t plan on getting it again. Still, what wrong would it do to have a no strings attached relationship, as long as both know how things are? I am not sure who has conquered who’s heart, but definitely little Teddy, Maddy’s son, plays such an important role.

The writing is very easy and beautiful. There are simple words what are so full of emotions! I read it in one night and I was so sorry it ended! The attention to family development is beautiful and I really appreciate that the author has not lost side of things and Maddy remains a devoted mother thought the book. There is a small mention about diversity in relationships, but that’s not the point of the story.

Even if towards the end I felt that the things kind of dragged and the conclusion was too sudden, this book made me feel so much and gave me that cozy feeling any romance book should bring to its reader. I loved it so so much. Well, to be completely honest until the end, I was expecting it! I mean, come on, “Fast Ride” (review here) was amazing as well. I had my expectations met! 4.5 stars and my “thank yous” to the author for bringing us such a great story!

Synopsis:

 

What’s more cliché than falling for a guy in a band?

A no-strings fling is all it was meant to be for Gracyn George. Sun, sand, sex, and then move on. That was before he strummed his way into her life. Each note leaving a tingle in her spine, their lasting melodies burned into her memory.

What’s more cliché than pining for the one who got away?

Gavin Keller has sacrificed far too much to chase after the girl who snuck out in the middle of the night and left him wondering, What if …

No matter how high his star rises or how many sold-out shows he plays, he ends each concert scanning the audience for her.

What was supposed to be temporary becomes a longing neither is willing to let go. After months of trying to move on, can they sync the tunes in their hearts?

My Review

Oh, what an interesting story and what interesting characters! K. C. Enders does a great job portraying the conflicts and underlying the personalities. I loved every page, even if the beginning was not so much to my liking.

First of all, let me remark how the names of the main characters seem to complement each other. Gavin and Gracyn are exactly what the other needs. Gracyn whishes a bit more freedom from all the expectations her family has, freedom from all the appearances they have to maintain. Gavin has the perfect parents. They support his dream and even encourage him to follow it.

The beginning was not necessarily my favorite part and it was not very believable. It’s visible Gracyn is less under her family’s influence, but the constant chase between them made me a little tired. But lucky for me, I didn’t give up, because what followed, blew my mind. They fall apart at some point and the way they come back together is emotional and very well realized. How they both opened their worlds to each other, the determination they put into transforming what they have into a functional relationship is fantastic!

Two other things did not convince me much – the cover (I am sorry, I don’t like it… I like my guys with a haircut; I understand the idea, but not like it) and the other band members. We get an insight into one of the guys, the good one, but the others… I still need to check their respective stories to understand them.

All in all, I did like “Tunes”. I know I have complained a lot about small things, but the story is interesting and we have two characters coming from different worlds and trying to make a relationship work. A short fling becomes more. I like that J 4 out of 5 stars.

Eli doesn’t have a lot of sympathy for his uptight neighbor, Nora, until he hears about her “un-datable” status and all it takes is one disastrous date with Nora for Eli to fall hard. Fans of Lauren Layne, Jenny Holiday’s ONE AND ONLY, and THE FINE ART OF FAKING IT by Lucy Score will devour this opposites attract, fun buy sexy romance.  

Title:  Make Me Fallmakemefall-rider-ebook

Author: Sara Rider

Release Date: September 24, 2018

Publisher: Self-published

Series: Books & Brews #2

Genres: Contemporary Romance

Page Count: 226

 

Synopsis:

 After losing her job, her home, and her friends in her divorce, Nora Pitts is determined not to make the same mistakes when she starts over in the small town of Shadow Creek, Washington. No more toiling away in the lab at the expense of her social life, and definitely no more men. Ever.  But making friends in her thirties is so much harder than she anticipated. And when it comes to her gorgeous yet obnoxious neighbor, it’s a whole lot easier to make enemies.

Eli Hardin doesn’t have a lot of sympathy for his uptight neighbor, until he overhears her so-called new friends making fun of her un-datable status. Suddenly he finds himself volunteering for a date with a woman who’s been leaving angry hate-notes in his mailbox, and in way over his head. Because all it takes is one disastrous date with Nora for Eli to fall hard.

But falling for Eli isn’t something Nora’s ready for—not when he’s her complete opposite, and especially not when he turns out to be the best friend she’s made in Shadow Creek. But as her attraction and her feelings for Eli grow hotter, resisting him might just lead to heartbreak anyway.

My Review

Ok, let me tell you two important things about this book: it’s funny and it’s amazing. A summary of this review: 5 stars. Now you have more time to go and buy it, but feel free to spend another 5 minutes going through my reasons.

As I mentioned, this was such a beautiful story! Every page made me laugh, one more than the other. I loved the main characters and I must admit I find myself in Nora a little, as I am weird in my own way. It all starts with Eli trying to teach Nora’s so called friends and book club partners a lesson by going out with her. Little did they expect to feel comfortable with each other. Now, because they both have their own… quirks, this relationship may seem not ok. But chemistry plays an important role. I mean, real chemistry and the other kind as well.

Eli is a gentleman. He is kind, he is strong and smart and so funny! He has his own things to deal with, no room for romance at all. Even if his mind is anywhere but into a relationship, he finds himself very attracted to his neighbor. Nora is determined to turn her career around and her life as well. Forced to start over in a new town, she wants to be accepted and to feel like home again. Correction: she wants to be accepted by anyone but her loud neighbor, with ugly taste in music and no respect for the quiet hours. But together, they are so great! I cannot even stop saying that!

The writing was beyond any expectation. It was delicious, if I can characterize it like that. I enjoyed every page and this kept me reading along nonstop. I have so many quotes marked and so many paragraphs that made me laugh.

All in all, it has been a real pleasure reading “Make Me Fall”. I loved it so so much and I am so happy I have another favorite author! I cannot wait to read more of her books! Please try it and you will not be disappointed!

Quick Ride Excerpt

Copyright © 2018 Michelle Dayton

Justin caught Maddy in his arms just as she turned to head back to their table. “Not so fast,” he said. “May I have this dance?”

Her cheeks were flushed from the exercise, and her eyes glowed like candles again. “Absolutely.”

He pulled her close. So close he could smell the shampoo she’d used on her hair. She moved her hands up and down his biceps before settling them lightly on his shoulders. He gripped her hips, loving how they swayed back and forth beneath his touch.

Everything felt so good that half the song passed before he spoke again. “You looked great out here,” he murmured into her hair.

She tipped her head back. “I told you I love to dance.”

He moved his hands from her hips to her lower back so that she was pressed even tighter against him. Then he whispered in her ear, “You did not tell me, however, how sexy you look while doing it.” Bizarrely, on their own, his lips traveled down and pressed a kiss to the skin beneath her earlobe.

What the hell was he doing? He was never into PDA. Occasionally, he’d put his arm around a woman or give her a teasing kiss on the cheek—the kind that came with a smacking sound effect. He didn’t even usually hold hands.

But here he was, in public, with his mouth on Maddy’s skin. And it wasn’t a dry peck either. His lips wanted to explore. His tongue was dying to taste her. Briefly, he let it.

She shivered against him, moved her own hands higher so they were locked around his neck. “Some things you just have to find out for yourself.”

The words were a throaty chuckle, said with the cadence of a confident woman. He went hard as a rock.

Pressed so tightly against him, she could hardly fail to notice. Would she pull away, deflect, pretend they weren’t rubbing against each other as much as physically possible in public?

She didn’t. In fact, she did something between a whisper and a moan, stood on her toes, and kissed his throat.

Jesus. “When this song ends, you’re going to have to shield me as we walk back to our table.” His voice was a desperate laugh. “You’ve put me in a … complicated position.”

She squirmed against him, making it worse. “Really?” she said innocently, arching an eyebrow. “This position seems fairly simple to me.” She laughed, low in her throat. “I’m guessing you know positions that are a lot more complicated.”

Synopsis:

 

“Your mother’s opiates are coming from Jose Herrera’s distribution network.” My pulse races as my stepfather speaks these words. Because taking on the Herreras also means taking on Diego.

Reckless, and hardened by a volatile past, Victoria does not see a future with Diego Herrera as a realistic option. As their childhood friendship ignites, they find themselves on opposite sides of a bloody feud between the two most powerful families in Mexico City. And she’s a Moreno now—brought up to be the secret weapon nobody suspected.

But Victoria can’t deny the attraction. Diego’s commanding muscles, the coarse, dark hair of his solid chest, that rugged scar above his sensuous lips…

Loyalty is in the eye of the beholder.

My Review

This book has very little over 120 pages and it has an action to die for! And… it almost happens, I mean, not you …. But people, I mean characters. OK, I’ll shut up know!

Really now, for a short book, it has some crazy events happening that will keep the reader hooked on page turning. It happened to me at least. There is some (SOME!) tension between the main characters, they want to be together but they can’t because their families won’t allow it. However they constantly fight for or towards each other and they hang to their feelings to be able to trust one another.

I loved the amount of detail we have in “Hard Trigger” and I liked the characters. The author built their background really well and managed to create strong personalities. Victoria is one badass woman. Her courage is matched only by the feelings she has for Diego and those feelings could burn cities. I loved them both!

The only thing I would complain is that too much of the story is told and not lived in the book while we read it. I wanted a bigger book, one that could capture more of their childhood and more of the conflict between the families. I wanted the inside scoop on one of the most feared family in Mexico. I wanted a tiny bit more!

But that does not mean this book is not worth your time! It’s one incredible story that will make you a prisoner of its covers. It is my first book by S. L. Hannah and definitely it will not be my last, for she has a lot of talent with words. 4 put of 5 stars!

What happens after the Happily Ever After?

Once upon a time, a tour manager and a rock star fell in love on a tour bus.

Many months and miles later, Kate and Danny are trying to build a life together in between two jet-setting jobs in the music industry. But despite their bondage-friendly lifestyle, Kate is rope-shy once the bedroom door opens.

Secretly, she craves something more than professional satisfaction, even though she swore she’d never swap her backstage pass for a picket fence. But it’s going to take more than words for this Dom to help his self-reliant submissive realize she’s never been more free than when she’s tied down.

My Review

As usual, I started with the second book in the story. I have not finished “Playing her Pauses” yet, but I did read “Tie Me down” completely. It took some time to understand the background, but at some point I focused only on the current story. The first thing I noticed was the friendly tone the author has used in the conversations. Even from the start, from the first scene, I got the impression my best friends were talking about things that happened to them. And this made me easily fall into the plot.

Kate and Danny are now into a relationship, with all things considered. They have an intense intimate life, they have feelings for each other, but now they have to face an enemy which is dangerous and hard to accept sometimes: distance. Being always on the road, they have little time to spend together physically, but more time to talk, to discover parts of the other that they did not know. But most importantly, they have time to understand what they want, what they need from the partner.

The characters are mature and more about their story is included in “Playing Her Pauses”, but from what I could figure out, he is into the strong stuff, when it comes to intimate relations and she is still figuring it all out. However, the way they talk to each other, the way they behave when apart and together, lets us know how deep their feelings are. They face new roadblocks and challenges, let’s see if they make it out all right.

I liked it, I liked the writing and the feeling of comfort it gave me while reading it. However, I must admit I wanted a bit more complicated, a bit more drama. Probably because of the short length and more because I have not finished yet “Playing Her Pauses”, I craved for something more. I can’t wait to go through the other books in the series and I’m happy to have discovered another great author J
