Blog Tour w/Review - Explicitly Yours

 

 

Mika Joie

Explicitly Yours
A Platonically Complicated Novella
Release Date Oct. 10, 2017

 

 

Marriage.

 

The final frontier. The end of dating. The number one cause of divorce.

 

I bet you every man who is about to take the plunge experiences a wide range of feelings. As a guy, whose wedding day is only seven days away, I know this.

 

Anxiety—Nerves are kicking in. Yeah, even confident, cocky guys like me are bound to face nuptial stage fright.

 

Let’s face it, forever is kind of a long time, right?

 

Excitement—Coriander and I are going to make it official. I’m marrying my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with.

 

Nothing can top this moment.

 

That is until I got the biggest surprise of my life…

Explicitly Yours Excerpt:

All relationships have one law, never make the one you love feel alone, especially when you’re there.”

 

Dean

 

CORI AND I are waiting.

 

Waiting to see if we are bringing a new life into the world. Every second feels like an hour.

 

Two lines or one?

 

In two minutes, we will find out if a mini version of us will be calling me dad. I am hoping with every fiber of my being that the result will not let Cori down.

 

She wants this.

 

Surprisingly, so do I.

 

My stomach is a roller coaster of emotions. With each passing second my excitement builds, reaching new heights, and then fear brings me crashing back down again.

 

Cori is sitting on the bed, legs crisscrossed, chewing her bottom lip, twisting one loop of hair around her finger. “You’re okay? We’re okay?”

 

Always, Moonchild.” I’m pacing, from the wall to the door, throwing a glance every few seconds at my Rolex. One more minute to go. This reminds me of that Velveeta commercial that used to be on TV, where one minute feels like a million.

 

A part of me wants to run inside the bathroom and take a peek, but the other part of me feels heavy and scared to look.

 

Who would have thought that the possibility of becoming a father could elicit such a strong surge of emotions?

 

My phone vibrates. Time’s up. I drag my palm along my jaw, take a steady breath, and say, “I’ll get it.”

 

Okay.”

 

Here goes nothing. I stride on shaky legs toward the bathroom. Once there, I close my eyes, count to ten, then glance at the stick sitting on the vanity. My heart does a stupid somersault, and then I swear it stops . . . just fucking stops for a long second before it starts beating again.

 

 

 

 

 

Explicitly Yours - A Platonically Complicated NovellaExplicitly Yours - A Platonically Complicated Novella

by Mika Jolie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is probably what I would consider The Boy Friend #1.5. This should not be meant to be a standalone read. It takes place following The Boy Friend. I recommend reading them in order to avoid spoilers.

Coriander AKA "Cori" is going to finally marry Dean. We leave off 6 months after the last book ended, with this couple so happy together officially. Cori just has secrets she is afraid to approach with Dean.

Dean has so much love for his bride to be. All he wishes is that she would communicate with him so they can solve what is wrong. He knows he will do anything for his dear Cori.

This is such a sweet, if short jaunt back into the lives of our favorite couple. Trying to keep their bliss, they encounter some rough spots on the way to matrimony. Worth the simple and hot read.

Rock Me (Bodyguard Bad Boys, #1)Rock Me by Carly Phillips

Ben gets a job protecting Summer for the second time. They have a seriously hot past from the first time he was her bodyguard. Now he is trying to keep his hands and other body parts off of her.

Cover Reveal - Hot Zone Series

Hot Zone Cover Reveal! by Carly Phillips

Date of Publication: December 9, 2016

 

Blurb:

 

Hot Stuff
Book 1


He's about to find out … She's not just one of the guys.

 

Annabelle Jordan and her two sisters were orphans in frilly dresses when they went to live with their sports-lawyer uncle in his world of locker rooms, bookies and gambling. Now the girls are publicists in their uncle's firm, The Hot Zone.

 

Despite her upbringing, Annabelle is all woman. She's naturally drawn to real men—like her latest client, businessman and former football legend Brandon Vaughn.

 

The chemistry is potent, undeniable, irresistible. Annabelle soon realizes that Brandon is much more than just another jock. And that she'd better hold on tight if she doesn't want to lose her heart.

 

Hot Number
Book 2

 

Micki Jordan is a tomboy as much at home on the playing field as in a locker room full of naked guys.

 

But the star publicist is looking to prove she's also an irresistible woman in order to get a second shot at professional baseball player and major league playboy, Damian Fuller.

 

Micki transforms herself into one hot number Damian can't help but notice and together they burn up the sheets and find themselves falling hard. Until Damian's past returns, threatening their future.

 

Hot Item
Book 3


Cool, collected Sophie Jordan loves her daily routine running her family's top sports management agency, as long as she gets to stay behind the scenes. But with big sister on maternity leave and little sis on her honeymoon, she's forced to step up to the plate. And a recent media crisis surrounding the disappearance of super-agent Spenser Atkins is not going to make the job any easier.

 

Enter star quarterback and notorious bad boy Riley Nash who, for reasons of his own, needs to track down Atkins. Up until now, Sophie has kept a strict no-dating-clients policy, but each day with Riley makes her rule near impossible to follow. With her job and her heart on the line, Sophie will need to make the toughest choice of her life!

 

Hot Property
Book 4


Just one short season ago, major league center fielder John Roper had it all: the looks—and personal life—of a sports hero and the public's adoration. But this hot property's lucky streak has run out. After a World Series disaster, fans diss him, shock jocks mock him and his dysfunctional family hassles him for money he really can't spare.

 

Now it's up to him, and Hot Zone publicist Amy Stone, to get his life back on track.

Amy finds it's easier said than done. What with the constant intrusions of his nutty family, a crazed fan playing stalker, and Roper's refusal to put his own needs first, she's starting to think that life in the fast lane isn't all it's cracked up to be. But when the two retreat to a secluded lodge, the sexy center fielder throws Amy a curveball—one she never saw coming...

Series Tour w/Review - Counting On Love

Counting on Love Series

by Erin Nicholas

 

 

Average rating of 4.3 stars

(Based on the 6 books rated at KBS!)

 

 

 

Since you will ask here is the deal.

 

My favorite book?  Whoa.  #4 Going For Four.

 

My favorite quote?  Like I always tell you, read them.  It is so worth it.

 

 

Without further ado, here are the books and reviews in order:

 

 

Just Count on Me (Counting on Love, #0.5)Just Count on Me by Erin Nicholas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was created by the wonderful author who answered her readers requests. She brought together in this short and sweet book The Bradford's & The Dixon's. This combines the series The Bradford's & Counting On Love.

This quick book is an introduction to where the Dixon family begins telling their tales. We leave off from where The Bradford's were here. If you are reading both series I caution you to read in order so you can give yourself the heat and excitement without spoilers. 

 

 

She's the One (Counting on Love, #1)She's the One by Erin Nicholas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ryan and Amanda have known one another for a while. He works with her brother, making him forbidden. Until one day something happens to change it all ....

Amanda just needed to be rescued. She just mentioned his name as a means to get rid of an unwanted suitor. Not really knowing what it would cause.

This series is so good. The characters are mostly related and the interaction is fun to read. I liked how the humor in the story made it more real. 

 

 

It Takes Two (Counting on Love, #2)It Takes Two by Erin Nicholas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Counting On Love series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For the readers enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this incredible series in order.

Shane & Isabelle are basically broken up as this book begins. With her basically being the love of his life, he is willing to make some concessions. They put this to the test.

Isabelle has been keeping many secrets from Shane. This could make or break their relationship. As it is, they are on the outs. If only they didn't have such a powerful attraction between them.

This book had all the feels and then some. I really could not stop laughing for part of it. Then the sad. The characters just make you feel everything with such power. Very well written. Seriously good series. I cannot wait to read the next book. 

 

 

Best of Three (Counting on Love, #3)Best of Three by Erin Nicholas
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book #3, in the Counting On Love series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading series in order.

Nate is trying his best to resist the outgoing and sometimes crazy, Emma. It is getting harder as she is his patient now. He knows he must resist but he is nearly forgetting why.

Emma has been attracted to Nate for a while now. She knows she is not his type. With them butting heads at every turn, she is doubtful they will ever get together.

This series just gets hotter! This story had them butting heads & the banter was flowing. I was laughing so hard! I really enjoyed reading about the development between these two. I have rooted for her for several books now.

 

 

Going for Four (Counting on Love, #4)Going for Four by Erin Nicholas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cody and Olivia have been best friends for almost 2 years and their friendship is stronger than ever. Except - Cody just walked in Olivia's home and found her naked. She is beautiful and everything Cody has ever wanted. If it weren't for her brother, Conner, they would be together in every way.

Olivia wants Cody and wants to take a risk. She has waited forever it seems for a man to think her worthy of every great stunt her sisters men have given them. She sees three great relationships and wishes for her own. She has a steady friend with Cody but she longs for more.

Cody is scared to upset the apple cart, so to speak, and stays just friends with Olivia even as it hurts like a physical ache. He loves Olivia but knows Conner has been very vocal and would never approve of them being a real couple. Olivia has been hurt in the past and listens to Conner's advice.

The tidal wave takes them away one night and the friends turn to one another for "benefits". Olivia is so grateful Cody noticed her - finally! Cody is hoping this means they can be a couple and work things out. Conner still is not okay with all of this and causes a rift in the 2 people who had such a strong relationship and now can't even speak to each other.

It's time for Olivia to grow up and stop being the baby sister everyone thinks is so fragile, she will shatter at the first sign of trouble. She finally explodes and tells Conner and Cody both to back off. It's all down hill from there. Can Cody and Olivia see that what they already have has been magical and right?

Really good book and a great installment as book # 4 in the Counting on love series. Erin Nicholas is a terrific author and this book had me going with laughter, tears, and tons of emotion! 

 

 

Up by Five (Counting on Love, #5)Up by Five by Erin Nicholas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #5 in the Counting On Love series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and enjoyment, I recommend reading this series in order.

This amazing series concludes with Gabby and Conner who work together. They end up living together and reviewing how they look at their relationship or non-relationship as it is. Other opinions aside, they really feel the sparks and are having a tough time ignoring one another.

Conner has realized he is starting to feel something more for her. Gabby is someone special in his life. He is actually angry with himself for how long it has taken for him to appreciate it. Now what can he do about it?

This amazing series has been a joy to read! It is HOTTER than I first predicted. I love the character development over time. I also love that the friendships and relationships are solid and proof that everyone can be loved.

About the Author Erin Nicholas:

 

I've been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber... they took my 'happily ever after' ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.

 

I've been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I'll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father's love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I'm sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.

 

But it wasn't long until I started writing about true love and that's where I've been ever since.

 

I'm so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.
