Blog Tour - Everything Girl
<!--more-->

 

Welcome to my stop on the Everything Girl blog tour!
 

Everything Girl
by Emily Mayer
Genre: Adult Romance
Release date: May 11th 2019

Summary:

Evelyn Mercer has always had a plan. She lives and breathes the plan. The plan and coffee. 
Go to law school. Check. 
Make Law Review. Check. 
Get competitive internship. Check. 
Land dream job. Double Check. 

That dream job? Yeah, it’s a nightmare, and Evelyn is miserable with a capital M. When she reaches her misery threshold, Evelyn does the unthinkable and deviates from her plan. 

Her unexpected new job takes her to Pinehaven Ranch in the middle of nowhere Montana where Evelyn is faced with her biggest obstacle yet. No coffee shops within a 30-mile radius and her new boss’ brother, former rodeo champion Jack Danvers. The three words that best describe Jack are stink, stank, stunning. He is perfection and he inexplicably seems to hate her on sight. But if there is one thing life has taught her, it’s that she still has a lot to learn and Montana is full of surprises.

Excerpt: 
 
"A thought struck me suddenly, like a bolt of lightning appearing without warning. I wanted that. All my planning, all my dreaming—it had been about accomplishing something. It had been about building a career for myself that I could be proud of, one that checked off everything on my list. There was no room for anything or anyone else. It was hollow and empty and really sad, and it made me feel all of those things. This—being in the car with friends; Margot singing in the front seat, Gabe laughing every time she messed up the words; even being tucked close to Jack—this made me feel something so good. This was worth something."

Trailer Reveal - Bursts Of Fire
<!--more-->

 

 

Bursts of Fire
by Susan Forest
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: August 6th 2019
Laksa Media Groups Inc.

Summary:

Bursts of Fire begins an epic political fantasy of revenge, addictions, and redemption for three magiel sisters in an empire where magic has become suspect and where love and loyalty--for one's lover, one's family, one's country--are tested. If Heaven desires the very earth be burned, what place can those below hope for, when the flames come for them?
The Falkyn sisters bear a burden and a legacy. Their mother, the imperial magiel of the kingdom of Orumon, protects her people from the horrors of the afterlife by calling upon the Gods with a precious Prayer Stone. But war among the kingdoms has brought fire and destruction to their sheltered world. When a mad king's desire to destroy the Prayer Stones shatters their family, the three girls are scattered to the wilderness, relying on their wits and powers they don't yet master.
Assassin. Battle tactician. Magic wielder. Driven by different ambitions, Meg, Janat, and Rennika are destined to become all these and more. To reclaim their birth right, they must overcome doubtful loyalties within a rising rebellion; more, they must challenge a dogma-driven chancellor's influence on the prince raised to inherit his father's war: a prince struggling to unravel the mystery of his brother's addiction to Heaven.

Then Cecily’s best friend Lila begins to ditch her every time Lila’s boyfriend calls. Cecily feels lost, but she and Andrew begin connecting more and she’s never been in a relationship where she felt so understood. Andrew even begins to confide in her about his anxiety. Soon Cecily experiences her own anxiety on a magazine photo shoot, but she manages to impress the magazine staff. Just when it seems like all her dreams are coming true, everything comes crashing down when a photo of Andrew with another girl appears online. He swears nothing happened, but Cecily is crushed.

Can Dreams Come True? (The Cecily Taylor Series #1)


Summary:

Cecily has always had a huge crush on singer Andrew Holiday and she wants to be an actress, so she tags along when her friend auditions for his new video. However, the director isn’t looking for an actress, but rather the girl next door—and so is Andrew. Cecily gets a part in the video and all of Andrew’s attention on the set. Her friend begins to see red and Cecily’s boyfriend is seeing green—as in major jealousy. A misunderstanding leaves Cecily and her boyfriend on the outs and Andrew hopes to pick up the pieces as he’s looking for someone more stable in his life than the models he’s dated. Soon Cecily begins to realize Andrew understands her more than her small-town boyfriend—but can her perfect love match really be her favorite rock star?

Excerpt:

“Good luck at the photo shoot tomorrow,” he said. “You’ll be great.”
I stared out the window on the ride back to the hotel taking in all the sites. As I walked into the hotel I felt a new air of confidence. Instead of just reading about someone going out with a pop star to some fabulous rooftop hotel restaurant and being in the big city, I was living it. This was my life and not some YA book heroine’s. Tomorrow I was off on a modeling shoot. I was living a dream and proving how I was ready for a big life. This was my destiny. I could do this.
 
 
****
 
My alarm went off and at the same time an alarm went off in my brain saying, no, I could not do this. What was I thinking? Me, model? That’s where people take photos of you for the sole purpose of other people looking at them, which encouraged judgement and evil comments. People don’t just keep those comments to themselves anymore. Oh no, they grab their phone or laptop or whatever device helps them spew out unhelpful and cruel comments on people’s appearances online for all the world to see.
 
 
My stomach felt like spewing all over the nice hotel sheets I was wrapped in.  Why did I ever think I was up for this? Those strangers online would destroy me within seconds. Girls like Harlow who were born with an undeniable beauty could do stuff like this and even then, I had seen strangers criticize her online when she posted selfies.
 
 
Being anxious always made all my senses go nuts. I ate two slices of toast and then my stomach did a weird flipping thing. Oh no, not today. Looking over at the clock I realized it was almost time for us to leave. Come on, stomach. You’re fine. Just relax and…nope, time to hit the bathroom. Why can’t I just be a big girl and go to this stupid shoot which most girls would kill to do without my stomach freaking out?

Sale Blitz - Going Down In Flames

Going Down in Flames
by Chris Cannon
Release Date: June 30th 2014
Entangled Teen

Summary:

FF&P’S 2015 PRISM Finalist

A 2015 Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence *WINNER* in the Young Adult with Romantic Elements category


If her love life is going down in flames, she might as well spark a revolution.

Finding out on your sixteenth birthday you’re a shape-shifting dragon is tough to swallow. Being hauled off to an elite boarding school is enough to choke on.

Since Bryn is the only crossbreed at the Institute for Excellence, all eyes are on her, but it’s a particular black dragon, Zavien, who catches her attention.

Zavien is tired of the Council’s rules. Segregated clans, being told who to love, and close-minded leaders make freedom of choice almost impossible. The new girl with the striped hair is a breath of fresh air, and with Bryn’s help, they may be able to change the rules.

At the Institute, old grudges, new crushes, and death threats are all part of a normal day for Bryn. She’ll need to learn to control her dragon powers if she wants to make it through her first year at school. But even focusing on staying alive is difficult when you’re falling for someone you can't have.

Excerpt from GOING DOWN IN FLAMES:
 
He blinked in confusion. “What do you want to know?”
Time to ask the million-dollar question. No matter the pain it caused, she needed to know. “Who is your intended?”
He shook his head. “It doesn’t matter.”
Wrong. “It matters if you plan to spend the rest of your life with her.”
“She’s a friend.” He didn’t meet her gaze.
Bryn heard a door close. Miss Enid and Valmont had retreated into the bedroom to give them privacy.
She inched closer. Electricity sparked between them, making the hair on the back of her neck stand up. “I need to know.”
He took a deep breath and met her gaze. “My intended is Nola.”
No. Freaking. Way.
Nola? His intended was Nola? How in the hell was she supposed to compete against the dark-haired Barbie? She couldn’t. Dropping her hand from his chest, she backed up a step.
Zavien closed the distance between them. “I swear. She’s a friend.”
Wanting to believe, she placed her hand over his heart and searched his eyes for the truth. “If she’s a friend, then what am I?”
He skimmed his fingers along her jaw and down her neck. Warmth radiated from his touch. He settled his hand at the base of her skull, leaned close, and whispered, “You are temptation.”
She held her breath as he lowered his head and brushed his lips against hers. Time seemed to stand still. His mouth moved against hers. Melting against him, she fisted her hands in his shirt and tried to pull him closer. He wrapped his arm around her waist, drawing her body flush against his.
Too soon, he pulled away. “I shouldn’t have done that.”
“I’m not sorry you did.” She traced her fingertips along his jaw. For so long, she’d been unsure of his feelings. Now she knew.

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.
