{{RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW}} LIVING WITH DOUBT by Riann C Miller




Title: Living With Doubt
Series: Regret Series #2
Authors: Riann C. Miller
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: April 24, 2017

She’s hiding from everyone… 

I don’t need a happily ever after filled with fake promises, animosity and eventually a divorce to be content. I’m living the dream…my dream, regardless of what anyone thinks of me. My meager life was perfect until a cocky football player wormed his way into my existence.

Once upon a time, I played an unconscious role in my own life, a mistake I have no plans of repeating. I pride myself with my outspoken and frequently excessive nature. It’s the consistent reminder of the person I refuse to become ever again. 

He’s the ultimate playboy… 

Life is perfect. I’ve lived and breathed football since I was a kid, and now I’m making millions playing in the NFL. I keep women around for one reason, but never the same one. The only attachments I need are family and friends but life has a bizarre way of proving a person wrong. When a concussion leaves my best-friend’s life spinning out of control, the last thing I expected was to meet an outrageous woman who leaves me begging for more.

She lives in New York.
I live in Arizona.

She promised me one night, but I discovered that’s not enough. Now, I need to figure out if I’m a pro off the field because I’m about to play the biggest game of my life. 

Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. Each book in The Regret Series can be read as a standalone.

“You want to tell me why you’re here?” She tilts her head back, gracing me with the view of those beautiful blue eyes.
My lips quirk up into a smile. “I told you already. My dick misses you. I tried to tell him you aren’t interested in a repeat, but he wasn’t convinced.”
“You’re seriously talking about your dick as though it’s a person? I thought only horny teenagers did shit like that?” She raises an eyebrow before pushing herself off my lap.
“What can I say, around you that’s exactly how I feel.” I might be smirking, but I’m not joking. All I have to do is think about her and I’m rock hard. “I’ve already agreed to be your dirty little secret, so what’s the big deal? I’m going to be in town for…a few more days. A week or so tops, so I don’t really see what the problem is.”
Her eyes dart around the room before finally stopping on me. “I don’t think it’s a good idea.”
“Why not?” I counter. “We’ve already been together, and it’s not like I’m asking you to skip work or even fucking date me.” I attempt to keep the frustration out of my voice, but this woman is starting to drive me crazy.
“Look, it’s not you, it’s me—” She stops talking when I fall back onto her bed in laughter. I end up laughing so hard I have to wipe my eyes.
“Do you have any idea how many times I’ve had to say that? Shit, the irony here is classic.”
“I’m serious, Girard.”
“So am I, Davis.” I hate it when she calls me Girard. I want to be more than just a football player in her eyes.
“You’re just not my type,” she adds in a lame attempt to prove some point about us not being together.
“I’m not asking to marry you, Davis. I just want to fuck your brains out for a few days before I fly back to my side of the country.”

I loved both Jake and Lacey when I read Living with Regret, so with the news that they were getting their 
own book I was very excited! 

I loved this authors writing, she has a way with words that holds you captive. This was a very emotional and passionate read that theft me feeling raw in parts.

This couple met when their best friends were trying to figure out their own relationship. But there was definitely a spark between them, one that is hard to ignore but with fact that they live so far apart it was never a problem. But now Jake is in her home town and their attraction is far from mediocre. One night was all she offered...but one night was all it took for Jake to realise he wanted more but just how much more was Lacey willing to give.

Lacey is a junior Lawyer so her smart mouth and fiery attitude come as no surprise. She is protective of the ones she loves and she has her walls built high and strong.

Jake is a star football player and is living the life. He is also a ladies man but has never had the desire to have a relationship. After watching his friend fight for his life and his woman, Jake sees thing in a different light and now with Lacey on his radar he is in a whole lot of trouble.

Lacey is stuck in the past and Jake just wants to offer her a future!!!

Can this couple overcome everything and get their HEA?

Finn Crawford never thought his life would change with one stupid dare. Or that he would make the mistake of taking things too far with his twin sister’s best friend. Now he’s fighting off an attraction he didn’t expect.

Cora Donovan doesn’t want a relationship, especially one with the guy who’s always been there for her when she needed it most. Just being in the same room as him makes her body heat up in ways she never thought possible.

There’s only one other thing that might stand in their way of being together, if they can actually figure out how to make it work. Neither of them want to hurt Olivia, and if they broke up, that’s exactly what would happen. Sometimes it’s hard to determine if love is worth the risk.

{{RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW}} THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY by Megan Vernon




Title: The One That Got Away
Series: Friendship, Texas #4
Author: Magan Vernon
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 24, 2017

Blurb

A brand new standalone from Friendship, Texas featuring everyone's favorite awkward baker and the one that got away.

I looked up and standing there was my ex-boyfriend, Jordan Webber. Maybe ex-boyfriend wasn't the right word. Maybe the boy who I dated for almost two years. Then he graduated early, leaving for art school in New York. He wanted me to come with him, but what future did I have in New York? My parents weren’t paying for me to go to school unless it was a state school with a real degree and all I ever wanted was to do photography. So the portrait studio worked for the time being until I realized I really needed to get out of the house and took the part-time job at the bakery. Between my parents’ divorce, work, and trying to get over my break up, I was basically a hot mess the first two years after high school. Joey came in at the right time as a distraction then the job at the bakery. But I still never forgot about the one that got away.

I hadn't seen Jordan in over four years and there he was, standing there with a hand on one of the boxes and his blue eyes wide open like he'd just seen a ghost.

"Abbey Dillinger?" he asked, it wasn't so much of a question as it was a breathless statement.


I hated him for leaving me. He could have gone to art school in Dallas. He could have stayed if he really did love me. I should have hated him. But seeing him, standing in front of me, I couldn’t hate him. The past four years had been very good to him. 

**This book is a standalone in a series of standalones taking place in the fictional town of Friendship, Texas. You don't need to read any of the previous books to understand this one***

Living in Friendship, a small town in Texas may not have been living the dream for Abbey but her dream in the name of Jordan had left her there to move to New York to live the big life and follow his career as an artist. Abbey was left heartbroken when Jordan didn't fight harder for her.

Abbey was a great photographer and could of left with Jordan to pursue her photography career, instead she was working part time at a local bakery and doing photography as a sideline.

After her friends with benefits relationship with Joey fell apart Abbey was feeling more alone than ever , there had always been something missing in her life since Jordan left her.

Jordan was temporary back in Friendship helping with his grandmothers estate, although that wasn't his only reason and this time he was not leaving without what he came back for. Things aren't always what they seem and Jordan's life isn't all that was expected in the Big Apple.

Abbey couldn't believe he was back and was even more shocked when he was trying to gain her trust again, she is still struggling with the fact he left and he is going to have to fight hard to win her over and get her to move to New York with him.

If you are looking for a light and easy to read story then this book is for you, not too much drama but some little twists and secrets through out the book. Well written with great characters, its a sweet and endearing second chance romance.

Before That Night



Before that night, Addison Milan had been just a college dropout secretly raising her two young siblings in a beat-up minivan she'd bought with her first semester's tuition refund--the only money her addict mother hadn't taken off with when she'd abandoned them nearly two years ago.

Before that night, Caine Spencer had been just a rough, gruff cop sent to check out the phoned-in claims of suspected child neglect involving the same woman he'd met just months prior when she'd first served him the city's worst diner coffee...which he'd been drinking daily ever since.

Before that night, Addison would never have thought the man she'd been fighting hard not to fall for--her only friend in her new shadow of a life--would be in a position to rip her family apart.

Before that night, Caine would never have believed any woman could make him fall head over heels, let alone make him feel so damn compelled to look the other way when it came to his job.

Then that one perfect night changed everything.

Only this time, Caine isn't letting the gorgeous little flight risk out of his sight.
