Blog Tour - Pete & Daisy

 

 

 

Pete & Daisy
by Tani Hanes
Genre: NA Romance

 

Release date: May 14th 2018

 

 

Summary:

 

He needs a place to live, she needs a baby daddy.

 

Pietro Santangelo and Marguerite White are students at prestigious Columbia University in New York City. She is a fun-loving, free spirit who finds herself in a bit of a familial bind, he is an exchange student with a chronic case of poverty. They concoct a plan that they think will work, not realizing how much changes with two simple words

 

*****************

 

Pete merely looked at her and opened a box of books. He took some out and began placing them on the shelves, bending and stretching at his task. He had a nice back, broad shoulders and muscles that could be seen clearly under his light blue T-shirt.

 

Daisy watched for a minute, fascinated.

 

"Like what you see?" he asked without turning around.


She jumped at the sound of his voice. "Well, you're the only thing in the room that's moving, you know?" she said by way of explanation.

 

He turned around to look at her, books in either hand, a small grin on his face. "Of course, what was I thinking?" he asked rhetorically. "And look. We're both adults here, hm?" He looked carefully at her. "The couch we just brought up here cost fifty dollars at the second-hand store, and has to be at least thirty years old. I don't want to sleep on it, and I don't think you're going to want to sleep on it, either."

 

She shook her head.

 

"So the bed is nice and big," he continued. "I think we can manage, don't you? We can share the bed." He watched her for her reaction. "I give you my word this is not going to be a problem for me. At all. Is this going to be a problem for you?"


She looked at him. "Really? At all?" She recovered from the unintentional meaning of his words quickly. "No, it won't be a problem for me, either," she said firmly. "We can share the bed."

Shopping Together


They ended up taking the subway; Daisy could tell that traffic in midtown and lower
Manhattan would be a mess because of the weather. They emerged from the station to gray skies and trash blowing across the sidewalks. It was a relief to duck into the store and remove their layers of clothing.


She looked through the various departments, asking Pete's opinion on just about
everything. She wasn't pregnant enough for full on maternity wear, so instead she picked out pants with elastic waists and loose, flowing shirts with lots of material.

 

Pete enjoyed watching her emerge from the fitting rooms in the various clothes. He was
supposed to look at her, after all, she needed his opinion.

 

She came out once wearing outrageous stretch pants with a colorful pattern of tulips
dancing around on a purple background. She turned around while smoothing them over her hips, looking at her reflection in the mirror, asking, "What do you think? Do they make my ass look huge?"


As Pete looked at the body part in question, silently telling himself that in those pants her
bottom looked like a bit of flowery perfection, she answered her own question, muttering,

 

"Who am I kidding? My ass looked huge before, looks like a fucking bus now."
She looked up at him in the mirror. "Well? Too much? I should be trying to find pants that
don't draw attention to that particular part of my body, huh?"

 

He dragged his eyes away from her delectable posterior, forcing himself to look at her
face as she chewed her lip, waiting for his opinion.

 

"What? No, definitely not," he replied decisively. "They look absolutely lovely on you.
Very cheerful, especially on a nasty day like today. They're like a little bit of springtime."

He grinned at her. "In fact, I'd say you need these pants--no, we need these pants in our lives."

 

He stepped closer to her and put his hands on her hips, giving her a little shake, looking
down at her upturned face. "Let me buy these pants for you, hm?" he asked softly.

 

"What?" She stepped away. "No, absolutely not. You don't need to be buying my clothes
for me."

 

"Please, Daisy," he begged. "It would make me so happy."

 

She looked at him, trying to figure out whether or not he was kidding.

 

He looked completely serious.


When they got to the register, he pulled the pants out of the pile of clothes she was
buying and stepped to the next register to pay for them, grinning happily at her. She shook her head at him.

Farraway Mist by Tani Hanes
Farraway Mist - Tani Hanes

  This Book is more a romance then Paranormal. The romance part was pretty good,  the paranormal parts are very short and far between. I was not crazy about Scout's attitude at all, she just seemed like a spoiled little girl to me, and a know it all. I guess it could just be she is comfortable with anyone and everywhere she goes. I just couldn't make myself like her. George seemed like a really awesome guy, I really liked his character. I really did not like the ending before the epilogue. I am not going to go into detail because I don't want to ruin it for the next reader, but the reactions were so wrong. 

   George Wilder, Rock Star and actor, lost his wife a year ago, due to a fall. Since then he has secreted himself away in his mansion. He decides to hire a librarian to straighten out the library in his home. When he bought the house he bought it with everything in it including the books in the library. After going through the applications he settles on Scout Lawson. 

   Scout Lawson has recently broken up with her boyfriend in Boston and decide she needs a change. She put in a application to be a private librarian for a home in England. 

  When Scout arrives George is shocked he thought she was a man from her picture attached to the application.

  Almost as soon as Scout arrives strange things begin happening. The first night she is grabbed while in bed by an unseen hand. George comes to her rescue, which is pretty much the beginning of George's romantic feelings for Scout, even though he thinks she is a lesbian. Turns out she is not and she has feelings for him as well. 

  The romance is hot at times, the sex scenes are not extremely graphic, but there are several of them. There is quite a bit of strong language in the book as well. All in all it wasn't a bad story.

Blog Tour w/Review - Living In The Shallows

 

 



 
Living in the Shallows

 

 

Genre: NA Romance
Release Date: October 28th 2016
 

Summary from Goodreads:Aileen Foster, a shy, 22 year old student from LA, thinks she has landed a dream job as an interpreter for some actors making a film in Japan. She gets a shock when she arrives in Tokyo and finds out that they are UK Crush, the hottest boyband around. She has been orphaned for most of her life, and it's a shock for her to enter their world of frank physicality. The boys come to love her, and Aileen is forced to look at her life and choices, and decide if she's ready to be brave and start living.   

 
 
Buy Link: Amazon
 
Check out sample chapters of the sequel, Diving Deep, on Wattpad!


 
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Aileen AKA Tinker Bell or Birdie as the boys like to call her, goes to Japan to interpret for someone making a movie. Turns out it is four guys around her age. They welcome her into the fold and treat her like family.

Theo and Matt are only half the band, but they are the half that are falling for their interpreter. There is so much going on in such a short time. Japan is very lovely and offers lots to see, but the schedule is quite hectic.

This story has so many wonderful adventures! I was really impressed with the character development. The guys are fun to read about. I cannot wait to read the next installment in the UK Crush series.
