Ties Blog Tour: Excerpt

Welcome to my stop on the Ties Blog Tour hosted by InkSlinger PR. I'm so thrilled to be a part of this tour because if it hasn't been obvious enough (I feel like the past few Ties related blog posts, I gushed and gushed so much that by now, it's becoming a bit annoying), I absolutely adore this series. There's just something so light and easy about it that makes it easy for me to get lost in.

For today's stop, I've got an excerpt to share with you so check it out and let me know what you think! I'm currently 30% or so into the book right now and surprise, surprise, I'm loving it so far! ;p Okay, moving on!

Eventually, her secret explodes and the person who means the most to her knows just how shattered she is and why she's so afraid.

Playing With Her Heart Blog Tour: Guest Post + Giveaway

About the book:

Title: Playing With Her Heart (Caught Up In Us, #3)
Author: Lauren Blakely
Publisher: Self-published
Release date: August 17, 2013

When you’re acting the role of a lifetime, how can you know if love is real—or all just a part of the show?

Twenty-three year old rising theatre star Jill McCormick has built a life out of pretending. Pretending she’s happy, pretending her long-distance crushes add up to something real, pretending she’s not haunted by the dark secret that shattered her world six years ago. Cast in her first Broadway show, she desperately needs to keep her façade intact, but that’s before she comes face to face with her devastating new boss…

Hot-shot director Davis Milo knows the first rule of directing: never fall for your leading lady. Captivated by Jill’s raw talent, he fights his feelings, but watching Jill on-stage with another man is more than his jealous streak can take. Keeping things professional isn’t an option. He wants all of her.

Soon the ingénue and her director are staying late in the empty theatre, their private rehearsals spiraling into new, forbidden territory. Caught up between fiction and reality, Jill struggles to find the truth in all their staged kisses. But how can she be sure that what she feels is real, and not a part of the play? And when two people spend their lives pretending, what happens after the final curtain falls?

Author: Kelsie Leverich
Publisher: InterMix
Release date: August 20, 2013

The New York Times bestselling author of The Valentine’s Arrangement continues her sizzling series with a new novel of a plan that goes awry—in the arms of a soldier…

Picking the wrong men is a talent Meagan Mitchell has perfected. She’s sweet, confident, beautiful—and single. With her thirtieth birthday sneaking up on her, she needs a new plan. No more Mr. Wrongs or Mr. Bads, it’s time to find Mr. Safe…

Army Captain, Reed Porter, lives for the thrill—he’s an Airborne Jumpmaster with a rush addiction. He’s sexy and playful, and he quickly tempts Meagan with his rich Southern drawl and sinful looks. But slowing down and settling down are not in his agenda, making him exactly the type of man Meagan wants to avoid…

As their undeniable attraction heats up, Meagan has to decide if she’s willing to risk everything on a chance at love with a reckless charmer. Is she brave enough to bet her future—and her heart—on Mr. Thrill? Or will Reed finally learn that the feeling of a safe landing is just as addicting as the rush of the fall?

Victoria Scott's Website | Twitter | Facebook | Goodreads
Bad boy, meet bad girl.

Dante has a shiny new cuff wrapped around his ankle, and he doesn't like that mess one bit. His new accessory comes straight from Big Guy himself and marks the former demon as a liberator. Despite his gritty past and bad boy ways, Dante Walker has been granted a second chance.

When Dante is given his first mission as a liberator to save the soul of seventeen-year-old Aspen, he knows he’s got this. But Aspen reminds him of the rebellious life he used to live and is making it difficult to resist sinful temptations. Though Dante is committed to living clean for his girlfriend Charlie, this dude’s been a playboy for far too long…and old demons die hard.

With Charlie becoming the girl she was never able to be pre-makeover and Aspen showing him how delicious it feels to embrace his inner beast, Dante will have to go somewhere he never thought he’d return to in order to accomplish the impossible: save the girl he’s been assigned to, and keep the girl he loves.

Release Day Launch + Giveaway: Ties by Steph Campbell and Liz Reinhardt

OH. MY. SWEET. GOODNESS. Ties by Steph Campbell and Liz Reinhardt releases today! I'm so freakin' stoked because I absolutely adore this series! I don't know what it is but I can devour these books in such a quickness; they're usually what pulls me out of my reading slumps. And the timing for Ties's release couldn't be more perfect because a reading slump seems to be exactly where I am.

I so can't wait to dive into Hattie and Ryan's world! (For some really odd reason, I so cannot, for the life of me, recall who Ryan is. Campbell and Reinhardt have mentioned tons of times which book he's mentioned in but I can't remember. At all. Is that weird?) I know that I'll definitely be swept away!

If you haven't checked out this fabulous series by these two amazing ladies, well... you must get on it!

Maverick Blog Tour: Excerpt + Giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the Maverick Blog Tour hosted by Girls *Heart* Books Tours. For today's stop, I've got an excerpt to share with you as well as a tour-wide giveaway sponsored by the author.

Make yourself comfortable and don't go anywhere! ;p

About the book:

Title: Maverick
Author: Anna Cruise
Publisher: Mission Bay Publishing
Release date: May 21, 2013

Kellen Handler is in deep.

Ever since he can remember, he’s wanted to be a professional surfer. And he made it, rising to the top of the ranks, traveling the world and riding every break he’s ever dreamed of. His good looks and reputation for living on the edge—both in and out of the water—have made him an international superstar. But when his best friend dies in a tragic accident, Kellen wipes out big time, spiraling so badly that everything he’s worked for starts to disintegrate.

Tour officials scramble to do damage control and demand he work with a public relations company to clean up his bad boy image. It doesn't help that the person assigned to him, Gina Bellori, has her own demons associated with the surfing world.

Against her better judgement Gina accepts the job and concentrates on repairing Kellen's tattered reputation, despite his protests and despite the pain it causes her. With her past colliding with her present—and Kellen in the thick of it—she begins to realize that some secrets can't stay hidden.

And suddenly, Kellen Handler is no longer worried about losing his career.

He's more worried about losing his heart.

Book Blitz: Seduce by Missy Johnson

As with most blitzes that come through my inbox via Xpresso Book Tours, I hardly 1) ever heard of the book prior to the email and 2) know much of anything about the book.

Because of today's blitz, I learned that Seduce is the novella in the Beautiful Rose series by Missy Johnson. That's major because I didn't know that so after reading the synopsis for the first book, Beautiful Rose, it seems to me that Seduce is insight to the leading male, Jack Falcon.

I know, all of this probably makes no sense so let's just get to today's post!

About the book:

Title: Smash Into You
Author: Shelly Crane
Publisher: Self-published
Release date: August 13, 2013

Jude has spent the whole twenty one years of his life running. From what, he wasn't quite sure. His mother tried to keep him safe; a low profile, a constant move on the horizon, a week's pay always stashed away. She tried to instill in him that he was special somehow, though would never elaborate. He never felt different. He was so completely normal and vanilla that he wondered if it had all been in her head. But then she was murdered and all he saw was a running silhouette of a man as his mother said three final words to him. Three words that changed his whole being.

Never stop running…

Now he's semi-settled into a big town. The college is huge and easy to blend into. It's been three months since he had to move because 'Biloxi', as he calls the man who killed his mother, found him once more.

Then Marley, an eighteen year old girl who is as infuriating as she is blissfully ignorant of her gorgeousness, smashes into his car with hers. Then smashes into his life as he realizes that whatever it is he has that Biloxi wants, she has it, too. And now, they're after them both.

Last semester, Romy escaped from an abusive relationship with the guy she’d thought was the man of her dreams. This semester she’s putting herself back together, determined to reclaim her passion for art and for life. When she signs up for a painting class at the local art co-op, the possibility of passion becomes very real—in the form of her teacher, Caleb. Both mysterious and seriously hot, Caleb bares his soul on his canvases, and Romy’s fascinated by what she sees.

Caleb is just trying to keep his head above water. Caring for his traumatized, unstable sister is getting harder every day, and his paintings are so dark and bleak that no one is buying. Teaching classes at the co-op is no longer enough, and now he’s going to have to sell more than just his art to the wealthy, sex-starved women in his classes. But when Romy comes along, she makes everything more complicated. She sees the truth in his paintings -- a truth no one else has realized, until now.

Romy and Caleb might have a real shot together -- one that could heal them both. But when ghosts from their pasts re-emerge, determined to keep them apart, will they be strong enough to hold on to each other?

Kelsey Macke’s Damsel Distressed (Spencer Hill Contemporary, 2014) is the story of Imogen Keegan, a seventeen-year old girl who has been stuck in a cycle of clinical depression, self-harm, and baked-goods-addiction since her mom died seven years ago.
