INKSLINGER BLOG TOUR Most Ardently by Susan Mesler-Evans

Today we have the blog tour of Susan Mesler-Evans Most Ardently! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

Title: Most Ardently

Author: Susan Mesler-Evans

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About Most Ardently:

Elisa Benitez is proud of who she is, from her bitingly sarcastic remarks, to her love of both pretty boys and pretty girls. If someone doesn’t like her, that’s their problem, and Elisa couldn’t care less. Particularly if that person is Darcy Fitzgerald, a snobby, socially awkward heiress with an attitude problem and more money than she knows what to do with.  

From the moment they meet, Elisa and Darcy are at each other’s throats -- which is a bit unfortunate, since Darcy’s best friend is dating Elisa’s sister. It quickly becomes clear that fate intends to throw the two of them together, whether they like it or not. As hers and Darcy’s lives become more and more entwined, Elisa’s once-dull world quickly spirals into chaos in this story of pride, prejudice, and finding love with the people you least expect.

 
 

 

 I loved the direction this one went, I love how inclusive it was with lesbian, bi, trans; and biracial characters. I also really liked the changes in the characters. In some of the early reviews some of the things they nitpicked about were the things I liked. I like the changes to the Colin and Lydia characters there is nothing wrong with making them more likeable especially since I really hated the original characters. I loved the updatedness it worked well. I was worried how the Lydia, or in this case Lucia, was going to play out but she did exactly what I had always hoped would happen to Wickham. He has always been a money hungry pervy creep and it was nice to see actually portrayed in this manner. 

Now the main character Elisa Benitez, Elizabeth Bennet, is a bi-sexual Mexican American and while technically is still a high school student goes to school at the local community college which is where she meets Darcy Fitzgerald. Darcy a biracial cis lesbian who is just visiting but is staying long enough she fills her time with some college classes before she starts at the university. Their first meet as you can guess is argumentative, they get into a literary debate over Lord of the Flies. It doesn't get any better when they just happen to start running into each other in social situations. It plays out pretty much the same as the original except updated for modern American times, except for the slight personality changes in Colin and Lucia. It's a little bit more obvious to the reader that Darcy and Elisa like each other but Elisa is a little oblivious.

Overall, such a good read. I inhaled this book I didn't want to put it down. It's in third person POV but sometimes changes from over Elisa to Julieta, Charlene, Lucia, and Darcy. It is more of a romance than a social commentary but had there been more I can just hear how people would be complaining that it's "Too Preachy"; there is some and it the right amount of feminism and in one particular case it's also the reason Colin isn't a douche at the end of the book. I loved this book it's definitely one that I would own a physical copy of to keep on my bookshelf.

Book Blurb:

The conclusion to TRIGGERMAN INC, a romantic suspense series about sexy assassins and a baby from New York Times bestseller Marie Harte.

Three assassins and a baby...are up against a cold-blooded murderer.

Hammer won't rest until he finds the woman who betrayed the team, who betrayed him. From the first, he hadn't welcomed his feelings for the supposed nurse. After what she did to the team, he feels both foolish and angry, falling for a pretty face. The need for revenge is all consuming—he’s not known as the Destroyer for nothing. But with so much danger on the horizon, his sexy prey will have to wait.

The conspiracy behind a baby found on his friend's doorstep is narrowing, and answers are coming fast and furious. Assassins have targeted Hammer and the organization he works for, and no one is safe.

To Hammer's shock, at the center of it all is the woman he can’t stop thinking about. But can he trust her when it's more than just his love and life on the line?

Add the book to Goodreads

 The conclusion of the Triggerman Inc. series, it's sad to see the end of a series especially one as enjoyable to read as this one has been. Three assassins and a baby get all the questions answered and their respective HEA's. I would recommend reading the previous books just to get the full extent of what has happened up until this point. Hammer has been tracking down Violet for her supposed betrayal and to find out everything she knows about what's been happening but after he finds her it becomes evident that she's being targeted too. A twisty and turny mystery follows with action, deceit, and plenty of Hammer and Violet gettin' horizontal, and boy did they get hot and heavy.

Overall, it was a great read. I love Marie Harte's contemporary romances, and I love romantic suspense so it's no surprise that I loved her romantic suspense. The book really did satisfy, fantastic suspense, smokin hot romance and plenty of action.

Book Blurb:

Three assassins and a... baby? Don't miss the first in this sexy, fast-paced romantic suspense series--TRIGGERMAN INC.--from New York Times bestseller Marie Harte.

Noel "Ice" Cavanaugh's method is foolproof. Get in, do the job, get out, melt away without a trace. Neat. Tidy. No mistakes.

This time, though, something isn't right. Two somethings. First, a random attack that feels not-so-random. Then he discovers a baby on his doorstep with a note claiming it's his. Unfortunately, the sexy neighbor who found the boy first has too many questions in her eyes to ignore.

When her handsome, mysterious neighbor suddenly asks her out on a date, Adeline Rose has suspicions he's fishing for help with his bundle of...joy? By the date's end, she's convinced Noel's just as distant as he seems--until a scorching goodnight kiss burns away all thoughts of being careful.

Now Noel has more than one problem on his hands. Splitting baby duty between three badass assassins, figuring out how to fit in more time with Addy...and keeping both of them safe from the danger that's followed him home.

This book has been previously released.

Warning: Beware a killer with a heart of gold, a baby who needs constant changing, and unrequited love that's actually quite...requited.

This book was a hoot! I loved Three Men and a Baby with the assassin twist. It was exciting, funny, and Noel was hot as hell. This is going to have an ongoing story arc that involves the baby throughout the series. I love all the characters; Noel and his cold and quiet reserve, Deacon the sexy smart ass, Hammer the muscle, Addy warm and slightly insecure, and Solene bombshell with a hatred of men.

Noel and Addy have been neighbors for two years in that time Noel has tried to keep at a distance only admiring Addy from afar. The quiet down to earth school teacher didn't need to be mixed up with a contract killer like him. But when a baby shows up at his doorstep claiming he's the father it brings the Business to his front door and pulls Addy in whether he likes it or not. Noel vehemently claims he's not the father that Deacon is probably more than likely the father, or even Hammer. With that question up in the air all they are waiting for is the DNA test results to come in. Someone is targeting Noel and now everything he cares about is at risk it's up to him and his two fellow assassins to take care of business.

Overall, I loved this book. It was so fun to read and so hot. I can't wait for Deacon's book. It is in third person POV so you get all sides of the story even the bad guys but without revealing who is really behind it all.

I have a love/hate relationship with this book. I hated it because it gave me panic attacks, anxiety, and I very nearly hyperventilated at one point. I became so aggravated with the patriarchal society of Dubai and the events that Jennifer was forced to endure. But I loved this book because it was able to invoke all those emotions in me. The writing pulled me in and refused to let me go even when Jennifer's world was falling apart at her feet and I came so close to giving up on the story I had to find out what happened. Told in a first person POV by Jennifer as her and her family go through this horrible ordeal. I was kind of hoping at one point Jennifer would go Liam Neeson on everyone's ass and find her daughter that way but no K. Moore sticks to a very realistic chain of events; frighteningly realistic. Overall, I did give this four stars out of five because it was emotional and it was a addictive read once I picked it up I didn't put it down until almost four hours later, except for the brief almost panic attack I had toward the end, I had to stop while I calmed down.

ARC REVIEW Solitude by A.K. Evans

 

 

Title: Solitude

Author: A.K. Evans

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Day: February 12th

 

 

About Solitude:

Lorenzo De Luca’s troubled past has left him a shell of a man. The blood that runs through his veins feels toxic. Determined to not let history repeat itself, Lorenzo vows to protect others from the violence that lives inside him.   
 
But when Jolie Moore literally stumbles into his arms and his life, Lorenzo finds himself captivated by her larger-than-life personality. Jolie’s pull is strong, making it difficult for him to keep his promise. It’s hard to resist the urge to connect with the girl who wears her heart on her sleeve, but Lorenzo knows he needs to lock his heart away to keep her safe.   
 
Because his legacy has the power to destroy.   
 
Jolie’s never been one to back down from a challenge, and her resolve to help him heal is strong. Lorenzo is wary, already content having found peace in solitude. But it isn’t long before Jolie shows him that he’s shielded others from a man who only has the capacity to love.

 

While Dom is still my man, Lorenzo runs a pretty close second. This was a pretty great read. Lorenzo's abusive childhood has him hesitant to build any deep relationship with a woman afraid of what he might become. Jolie sees Lorenzo for exactly who he is a protector someone worth spending her life with but getting him to start anything is hard. First he pushes her away but knowing he's hurting her by avoiding her and seeing her in a really sexy dress has him finally stepping up. But that's just step one they still have a long way to go before they can have their HEA.

I love the writing, Evans is so emotional with her characters it's easy to empathize with them. I enjoyed the tie in with her other Everything series and I'm kind of hoping for a hockey series in the future, Lorenzo's brother. Overall, it was a great read with fantastic characters, heartfelt situations, one pretty kickass climax, and not to mention a cute little puppy.

 

 

 


   

 
 

About A.K. Evans:

A.K. Evans is a married mother of two boys residing in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania. After graduating from Lafayette College in 2004 with two degrees (one in English and one in Economics & Business), she pursued a career in the insurance and financial services industry. Not long after, Evans realized the career was not for her. She went on to manage her husband’s performance automotive business and drive the shop race cars for the next thirteen years. While the business afforded her freedoms she wouldn’t necessarily have had in a typical 9-5 job, after eleven years she was no longer receiving personal fulfillment from her chosen career path. Following many discussions, lots of thought, and tons of encouragement, Andrea decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer. Between her day job, writing, and homeschooling her two boys, Evans is left with very little free time. When she finds scraps of spare time, Evans enjoys reading, doing yoga, watching NY Rangers hockey, dancing, and vacationing with her family. Andrea, her husband, and her children are currently working on taking road trips to visit all 50 states (though, Alaska and Hawaii might require flights).
