#10 - Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Caraval - Stephanie G. Garber

I requested this book on NetGalley a few weeks ago but did not got approved. I thought, not a big deal, I'll wait for it to come out. Then I went to Maastricht and found it in the bookstore (really, I should check this place more often, they have a lot of new releases), it was not even supposed to be out yet.

 

Anyway, I grabbed it. And I was really surprised by this book. I was not expecting that at all. I was expecting something darker and bloodier (even if there was some blood and it was not always joyful), but that was fine. There was something totally crazy about this book and I loved it.

 

The events of the book take place in a few days (or rather nights) and it was quite fast-paced. I did not really keep track of all the events, the plot had not such a great importance for me because I was mesmerized by the world the author created and the crazy ideas she had. It wasn't like anything I had ever read. It was different and I liked that.

 

The characters were great and difficult to pinpoint. They were not that complex, there was a sort of good against evil, but some of them were really mysterious.

 

I recommend this book if you're in the mood for some craziness.

Blog Tour - Distraction

Title: Distraction
Series: Club Destiny
Author: Nicole Edwards
Genre: Adult, Erotic Romance
Published: January 31, 2017
Time doesn’t always heal a broken heart. Sometimes the only thing it does is fill the darkness with more shadows, more pain.

Dylan Thomas has spent the past decade living in the shadows, mourning the loss of his wife, his best friend, his very reason for breathing. He long ago accepted that he would never feel again, that he was damned to a world without light, without hope. That was the day the bottle won, and he gave himself over to the darkness.

Until the one night that rocked his brittle, crumbling world on its axis. She told him what they shared was simply a distraction, a way to forget for a little while. It would’ve been, except the tiny glimpse of how it feels to live again, to feel again, gives him the strength he needs to pull himself up by his boot straps. But sobriety comes one day at a time, and three years later may be three years too late.

Release Day Blast - Three Simple Rules

tsw-rdb-banner

 

I am so excited to be celebrating the release of Three Simple Words by A.J. Pine! Three Simple Words is the perfect addition to the Kingston Ale House series, and the perfect nod to romance readers and the community in general! Get your copy of this romantic and sexy read today!

About THREE SIMPLE WORDS:

 

She's holding out for a happy ever after.

 

Annie I know where to find my happily ever after—between the pages of a romance novel. It’s why I sell books, why I blog about them, and why I’ll never get disappointed by love. So what if my brother’s best friend from high school is now a bestselling author? Or that he just blew back into town on a Harley, filling out a pair of jeans like he never did before? Or that he’s agreed to do a signing at my bookstore on such short notice? Because despite all his adoring female fans, I kind of hated his book.

 

Wes The last time I saw Annie Denning, she was a senior in high school, three years older than me and way out of my league. Now I’m her last-minute date to a wedding, and what started as a night of pure fun has turned into something more real than either of us anticipated. Annie is my muse. When I’m with her, my writer’s block fades away, and the words finally flow. The only problem? She wants the fairy tale—her very own happily ever after—and anyone who’s read my book knows the truth. I just don’t believe they exist.

 

Find it online:

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Goodreads

Each book in the Kingston Ale House series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order. 

 

The Kingston Ale House novels by author A.J. Pine:

Book one: The One That Got Away

Book two: Six Month Rule

Book three: Three Simple Words

 

 

About A.J. Pine:

 

AJ Pine writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and a librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, the books she writes have the same. When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading. Then there’s online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes). And a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires, superheroes, and a certain high-functioning sociopath detective. You’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago ‘burbs. AJ Pine is the author of the If Only series, the Only You series, and the current Kingston Ale House series.

Blog Tour w/Review - SICARIO
Title: Sicario: A Novel
Series: Worlds' End #3
Author: Kai Tyler
Genre: Dystopian M/M Romantic Thriller
Published: June 20, 2016
Sold by his parents and bred in a lab, Lexan Cesare is trained for one purpose—to execute his boss's orders. In the mafia life, loyalty is everything. Emotions have no place and he never questions the rights or wrongs of the decisions that send him to terminate lives again and again. Until one assignment draws emotions he's never felt before and makes him question his true allegiance.

When a stranger walks into Enzo Mattia ranch in search of a job, his life is changed irrevocably. He is ripped apart from his family and everything he knows and ends up sold into slavery. He swears to mete revenge on all who have wronged him.

First he has to escape from his new owner, Lexan, a man who captivates him and makes him want to act on impulses he's suppressed for a long time. Impulses that can lead to death.

With corrupt lawmakers and deadly cartels, the world is in flux. Loyalties shift at the speed of a bullet and betrayal abounds. In the new world falling in love is just a death wish.

This is a full length male/male romantic thriller set on a dystopian earth.

 
 
 
Sicario: A Novel (World's End Book 3)Sicario: A Novel by Kai Tyler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 3rd book in the World's End series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading the series in order.

Lexan AKA Alex has been sent to kill Enzo. They meet when he applies to work on Enzo's ranch. In order to study the man, prior to killing him, he becomes his employee.

Enzo and his sister befriend the unknown Alex. Not knowing the danger they are in, they treat him like a newfound friend. When tragedy strikes, they are separated.

This is a powerful story about corruption & fighting for the upper hand. I found the characters very compelling and real. This series sure makes a person stand up and take notice. I cannot wait to see what it next!

Dressed, I headed across to Enzo’s room. He opened the door for me and my mouth dropped open. He looked amazing in a white dress shirt and navy slacks. I’d never seen him in anything other than jeans, chambray or t-shirts. Instead of boots, he wore brown leather brogues.
He stared at me with an odd expression before saying, “You look good,” and turning away.
“Wow,” Gianna said, looking me over. “You scrub up well for a ranch hand.”
She wore a lovely emerald silk dress that was cut off across one shoulder and draped in an asymmetrical style beyond her knees. Strappy diamante sandals and her hair styled in a loose chignon completed the classy outfit.
“He sure does,” Enzo added, still giving me that look that made my heart thud faster.
“And there I was worried you wouldn’t have anything suitable to wear.” She beamed a smile at me, and then turned to her brother, holding up a maroon silk tie. “Come on, Enzo. The tie will go great with your suit. Tell him for me please, Alex.”
“No, I don’t need one. Alex isn’t wearing one and he looks great.” He turned away as if he hadn’t expected the words to come out as awestruck as they did.
My smile blossomed into a full grin. He really liked me in a suit then.
“I don’t need a tie. As you say I’m just the ranch hand.” I winked at Gianna. “But the tie will work well with your suit. Here let me help you.”
I walked over to Gianna and took the tie from her. “You look totally amazing,” I said and pressed a kiss to her cheek.
Then I strode over to where Enzo leaned against the table. “Trust me, you’ll look great.”
“Hmmm,” was all he said, but he let me come close enough to turn the collar of his shirt up.
I was conscious of Gianna behind us so I maintained a reasonable gap between us as I slid the silk around his neck. Each breath I took filled my lungs with his scent—man and spice—that transported me back to the night in the log cabin.
As I looped and knotted the tie, I couldn’t help brushing my fingers against his chin. His breath hitched. A smile played at the corner of my mouth. He’d shaved the skin smooth. I missed the bristles and wanted them rubbing against my skin.
“I can’t find my perfume in my purse,” Gianna called out from behind. "I’m going to pop back to my room and get it."
My body trembled, knowing I'd be alone with Enzo for a few minutes. I could feel the tension coming off his body too.
As soon as the door closed behind his sister, I couldn't keep away any longer. I leaned my body against his, making sure he felt the bulge of my erection on his thigh.
“I’ve missed you,” I whispered before brushing my lips on his.
He gripped my low pony tail, angled my head and devoured my mouth.
I groaned long and deep as I sank into him, loving his strength, loving the contact. My hands slid around his back as I gathered him into me so that we were as physically close as we could be with clothes on.
I don’t know what happens to me whenever this man touched me, but I felt as if this was where I should be.
A rattling noise at the door broke us apart when Enzo shoved me away.

Kai loves writing stories about forbidden men and relentless love, about gangsters with heart, antiheroes who do what they need to do to survive in a crazy world. These men commit to the lives they lead 100%—with heart, body and soul and when they fall in love you can be sure they bring the same level of passionate devotion to the people they love.

Kai's debut dystopian MM romance novel, Duce, was an All Romance eBooks Top 50 Bestseller when it came out in 2015. Visit www.kaityler.com to connect with Kai.

Sinful by Lily Harlem
 
London is aflame with riots. Confusion and danger lurk around every corner. For Cheryl, caught alone and terrified in a dark alley, she fears she’s about to meet her maker.
 
Luckily the safe sanctuary of a small church, nestled between the deserted shops and houses, affords her protection. And within these sacred walls she finds Father Steve—a man whose decision to be celibate, marry his faith, seems to her an awful waste to the females of the world.
 
But all is not as it seems and as her hot and holy new friend reveals his layers and confesses his sins, the temperature in the church heats up more than the flames raging across the city.  
 
Safety, however, is an illusion, and the pair must fight to survive. In doing so will fate draw them together? Have the heavens mapped out their destiny? And was Father Steve telling the truth about his virginity?
 
 
Excerpt:
 
“Don’t be shocked. Tonight is unusual.” He reached out and took a lock of my hair between his fingers. He rubbed it, spreading out the blonde strands. “I think God has thrown us together. To take care of one another.”
 
“You do?”
 
“Yeah.” He looked up and smiled.
 
It was a filthy, dirty smile. The sort I’d seen on boyfriends when we’d been drinking, flirting, having fun and about to start satisfying some seriously carnal urges. “Father,” I whispered.
 
“Yes?”
 
“What … what are you doing?”
 
“Sitting with a member of my flock who appears very scared.” He shifted on the narrow pew.
 
“Yes. I am scared. Of what’s out there.”
 
“Not what’s of in here?”
 
“Should I be?”
 
“Not if you have God in your heart.”
 
“I’m not very good at going to church.” There, I’d said it.
 
“I think you’re probably good at other things.”
 
“Like what?” My heart rate was tripping along.
 
“Other things that make you feel good. Things that make the person you’re with feel good.”
 
Damn if he didn’t have that white collar sitting around his neck, I’d think he was being suggestive. Actually, no, even with that white collar I thought he was being suggestive.
 
“Feel good?” I repeated.
 
“Yes.” He leaned closer, his lips only a whisper from mine.
 
Damn the instinct to kiss him was almost overwhelming. Sure he was a stranger, but he was a good man, a man of morals and beliefs.
 
Which was exactly why I couldn’t kiss him.
 
But what if I died tonight? What if this was it? Surely I should have one last moment of passion. I loved sex, and it was one of my favorite things to do.
 
“What do you want to ask me?” he asked, his breath washing over my mouth.
 
“I don’t know.”
 
“I know you do.” He paused. “One thing. Ask me one thing. I’ll be truthful.”
 
One thing. There were so many. He was the most unusual priest I’d ever met. Not that I’d met many. Not only was he handsome in a rugged kind of way, he also oozed sex appeal. It seemed to roll off him in waves. Had we been in a club I’d have gone for him, and had a one-night stand just to see how a guy like him did it.
 
“You don’t have anything you want to ask me?”
 
“Yes. I do.”
 
“Go on then…”
 
What was really in the bag? Why was he here at night alone? Where did he live exactly? Did he look at all women the way he was looking at me—as if he were undressing them with his eyes?
 
“Have you ever had sex?” I blurted. It was the answer I really wanted after all.
 
“No.” He shook his head. “Bonafide virgin.”
 
“Oh.” Damn it. If I’d been turned on before, now I was in white-hot ready-to-go mode. The things I could teach him given the chance. What I could do with his naive, inexperienced, gorgeous body. The delights of the flesh I could introduce him to.
 
“But I bet you’ve had lots of propositions,” I said, wondering if I should sit on my hands to stop myself reaching out for him.
 
“Yes. But I’ve always turned them down.” His voice was low now, husky too. “Do you want to know why?”
 
“Yes,” I said quietly.
 
“Two reasons.”
 
“Which are?”
 
He glanced at Jesus. “I made my promises to the Lord.”
 
“Of course. Yes.”
 
“But lately…”
 
“What…?”
 
He shook his head and glanced at his lap.
 
“Lately what? Tell me.” Had he been questioning his faith? Was that it? Was that why he was looking at me as though he had only one thing on his mind—and it wasn’t the riot outside.
 
“Lately my faith has been tested. The evil in the world, including here. It’s hard to stay focused.”
 
“I’m sure.” It was my turn to take his hand. I gave it a squeeze and looked at the way the hairs fanned over the back and disappeared into the black sleeve. I ran my fingers over the letters on his knuckles. Love was clearly a moto he lived by. “And what’s the other reason?”
 
“I told you I’d had propositions.”
 
I nodded.
 
“And always turned them down.”
 
“Because you’d made promises and you love God.” I paused. “Very noble. Very commendable.”
 
“Yes.” He tipped his head. “But the thing is, Cheryl.”
 
“What?”
 
No one like you, no one as sexy as you, has ever propositioned me.”
