#NewRelease: Goodbye Paradise, by @SarinaBowen

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

Most people called it a cult. But for twenty years, Josh and Caleb called it home.

In Paradise, there is no television. No fast food. Just long hours of farm work and prayer on a dusty Wyoming ranch, and nights in a crowded bunkhouse. The boys of the Compound are kept far from the sinners’ world.

But Joshua doesn’t need temptation to sin. His whole life, he’s wanted his best friend, Caleb. By day they work side by side. Only when Josh closes his eyes at night can they be together the way he craves.

It can never be. And his survival depends on keeping his terrible desires secret.

Caleb has always protected Josh against the worst of the bullying at the Compound. But he has secrets of his own, and a plan to get away — until it all backfires.

Josh finds himself homeless in a world that doesn’t want him. Can Caleb find him in time? And will they find a place of safety, where he can admit to Josh how he really feels?

Warning: Contains a hot male/male romance, copious instances of taking the Lord’s name in vain, and love against the kitchen counter. This book was previously released under the title: In Front of God & Everyone.

#NewRelease: Operation Prom Date, by @CindiMadsen

Operation Prom Date

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

Kate ships tons of fictional couples, but IRL her OTP is her and Mick, the hot quarterback she’s crushed on since, like, forever. With only one semester left of senior year, it’s now or never if she wants to land him in time for prom. Since she’s flirtationally challenged, she enlists Cooper Callihan, the guy who turned popular seemingly overnight but who used to be a good friend.

Cooper lives and breathes rowing, but his partner just broke his wrist. When he remembers Kate’s good with a set of oars, he strikes a deal: help him train, and he’ll make sure her crush notices her. Only he didn’t know how addicting spending time with her would be. Or how the more successful the Operation is, the more jealousy he experiences.

The mission has been set. The troops have their marching orders. But what if the target is the wrong guy all along?

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains stargazing, accidental swimming, and poker swindling. This kissing practice will melt your ereader…and give you a new couple to ship.

below-deck

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

Declan McGillis can’t stand rich people. But working as a deckhand on a luxury charter yacht, he also can’t escape them. Declan has spent years kissing their ass and doing their bidding…whatever it takes to make his dreams come true, and nothing will get in his way of being the captain of his own yacht one day.

Mackenzie Armstrong knows what people think when they look at her. She knows from the outside looking in, it seems like her family has it all and doesn’t have a care in the world. Things aren’t always what they seem, and not only does Mackenzie have the weight of her family’s struggles on her shoulders, she also needs to prove to Declan that she’s not the spoiled princess he believes her to be.

Declan can’t ignore the sparks of lust between them, even though Mackenzie is completely off limits and absolutely out of his league.

Mackenzie thinks a vacation fling is just what she needs to forget about the mess her life has become, and Declan is the perfect man for the job.

Will this be a quick romp in the water, or will it turn into something more when Mackenzie finally gets below Deck?

#Review: 180 Day, by @TE_Ridener

180-daysTitle: 180 Days (Prairie Town #1)
Author: T.E. Ridener
Rating: 5/5 stars

“Lydia McIntosh left her old life behind when she said goodbye to Prairie Town, North Carolina and started over halfway across the country with her beloved Gran; away from her family, away from everyone who knew the person she once was, and from the identity she never quite wanted in the first place. When her grandmother passes away, she returns home and while she only intends to stay for the funeral, her grandmother has other plans, from the grave. Her will states that Lydia must remain in Prairie Town for six months in order to give her family and her old town a chance to get to know the new her, the real her.

Lydia has had years to adjust to long hair, summer dresses, and nail polish, but she understands her family will need time to get reacquainted with a daughter they’ve never known and a sister they’ve missed terribly. Anticipating the worst, as she always has, Lydia’s feelings about her old town begin to change when she meets her brother’s best friend, Callum. Callum is kind and more accepting than she could have ever imagined and she’s falling for him.

When her 180 days are over, will she be able to say goodbye to the family she’s missed so much? Will she survive her mother’s endless intolerance? Can she really leave the man who acknowledges her past and still wants her?

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: This is a story about a transgender girl and her journey to acceptance and love when she returns to her hometown. Within the pages of this book you will be introduced to characters who color outside the lines and that’s just how they like it. I implore you to give them a chance because we are all beautiful and unique in our own ways, and we all deserve love and happiness.” (description from Goodreads)

I’m happy that this book wound up being my first romance with a transgender lead character in it. Through reading it, I was able to diversify my reading even more. And it’s not just a box for me to check off. It was a way to expand my understanding and knowledge of the real world where such a variety of people live. Along with that, I was able to discover a series that might make it on my favorites list as I read more of the Prairie Town books.

There was so much in this book that I loved. I could go on and on about the characters and the depth the author gave to them. Ridener was even able to make me enjoy a book with more than two POVs. And I think that was a major plus for helping the book work. As a reader I was able to see into the minds of a variety of characters, and not just the two romantic leads.

And this book was more than just a romance, though it was in there and worth the read for it alone. It’s a coming of age story. It’s a novel about family and acceptance within a family, a community, and within oneself. There are many different levels in 180 Days and I’d rather not pick the book apart. I think it’s better to just know that this book was a great read and worth giving a chance! It also has me eyeing the rest of the books in the series already, and I’ve only just finished it this morning. I can’t wait to visit Prairie Town again soon.

#CoverReveal: Avery, by @Chel_C_Cam

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

Avery Benson is surly, fed up, and frozen in place. As the oldest Benson, his goal has been to set an example of success for his siblings to follow. He loves his job (most of the time) as a loan officer at the local bank and he’s got his sights set on moving up, but there’s something missing in his life. He’s standing still and doesn’t know what to do. And then Meredith Lee walks into his office looking for a loan to open her own yoga studio and it’s like the sun has come out from behind the clouds.

Meredith Lee is desperate, stressed, and waiting for her life to start. All she needs is a little bit of money to get Susurrus Yoga off the ground. All that’s standing in her way is securing a loan from the attractive and elusive Avery Benson. Who knew finances could be so sexy?

What starts out as a business relationship quickly turns into something else when Avery shows up at Meredith’s yoga class. He’s more than just a little distracting and it’s hard for her to focus on Savasana when all she wants to do is roll around with him on her yoga mat for a while. Avery isn’t looking for any type of relationship, and it would be highly inappropriate anyway, but sometimes, things happen…

What starts as just a physical connection deepens and Avery feels like he’s finally found what he’s been searching for. On and off the yoga mat. But will Meredith be willing to take a leap of faith and take their relationship to the next level? Or will Avery go back to being just another one of her yoga students, if that’s even possible?

MY SWEET VILLAINTINE – A VALENTINES COLLECTION OF DELICIOUS DARKNESS

Happy f*cking Valentines Day.

That’s what your favorite sexy-as-sin villain would say to you, right? And he’d probably say it with one hand around your throat and your dress bunched around your hips.

It’s doubtful that he’ll buy you flowers.

He definitely won’t serenade you.

But there’s a good chance he’ll tie you up and spank you if you ask nicely. And the only jewelry you’ll be getting? Is a pretty pearl necklace. Unless you count the rope bracelets he threads around your wrists when he straps you down and f*cks you until you forget your own name.

Leave the chocolates and the jewelry to the good guys. It’s time to go dark side this Valentines Day.

My Sweet Villaintine – a collection of dark tales from some of your favorite dark romance authors…
