Here’s the thing about going on vaca - you get a lot of reading done! I’m a little late to the @authorsamanthayoung
show. I picked up #FightorFlight
because of all the #bookstagrammer
buzz and I loved it. So then I had to wonder, what was I missing out on? On Dublin Street seemed to be her claim to fame, so I decided to start there. Wow. Just wow. Imagine being 14 years old, a happy teenager with loving parents and a younger sister. Imagine all of that disappearing in an instant and being left an orphan. Think of the ramifications that would have on your adult life. Yeah, I was also crying after just reading the prologue. There’s nothing superficial about Samantha’s books. These are not lighthearted rom-coms, but don’t worry - they’re still steamy 😉🔥. In fact, the book hangover is REAL because I became so invested in the growth of Joss and Braden, not only as a couple but as people. I couldn’t stop turning the pages but at the same time, I had to take pauses and disconnect myself from their world otherwise I would have been a perpetual blubbery mess. I became invested in all the people they were surrounded by, just because they had broken into my heart and mind just as Joss and Braden had. I’m sorry it took me 7 years to discover Samantha Young, but I’m so glad I’ve found her now… and that there were 2 novellas (Castle Hill and Stars Over Castle Hill) to follow up on Joss and Braden’s story that I could indulge in further. #bitchesbookclub #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booknerds #bookish #booklove #bibliophile #readersofinstagram #contemporaryromance #romcom #romancenovel #romancereaders #bookrec #currentlyreading
Mac and Georgie are in my head constantly these days. I'm a slow writer and an even slower editor. Once the story bones are there, it takes me a long time to get it "right" enough to send out into the world. I'm getting there with the draft though. I'm at almost 87K words, with the hard part yet to come.
I've shared an exclusive teaser in my reader's group and on Goodreads (if you're my friend there you can see my status updates).

●▬▬▬▬๑Sweet Seas by Scarlett Finn is FREE๑▬▬▬▬●
. "THIS book. It was absolutely AH-mazing. One of the best books I've read this year. The feels. The HOT alpha male. It made me laugh and it made me cry. I swooned for the Captain. He is my new, ultimate book boyfriend. The hairs on my arms tingled with the suspense. I have to say that this book is crack for readers. I just couldn't get enough. There was absolutely no way that I could put this book down. I didn't care that my family was fed. Laundry? What laundry? This is a MUST read. Caution: Book hangover! You will want to read everything from Scarlett Finn!" Goodreads reviewer.
Sassi Robins needs money. Lots of money. If she can’t get her hands on enough by Dario Correa’s deadline, she’ll be forced to walk down the aisle at his side. Damning her father for dying and leaving her with his debts won’t help. She needs a job, one that pays damn well.
Captain Swain needs a cook. One who can cast off without delay and he doesn’t mind paying for the privilege. The waif who shows up for the job doesn’t seem like she’ll last a day on the waves. But, the sweet smelling wench has a fire that draws him in, mesmerizes him, and makes him lose his mind.
Although Sassi knows she should resist the gruff, overbearing master of the vessel, it’s a fight she can’t win. On his ship, she’s his to do with as he pleases… and his desires have a lot to do with pleasing her.
But, the fantasy can’t last. Reality is waiting for her on shore and time is working against them. Sassi has to let her captain go to save his life, and fight against the clock to save her own.
Warning: Contains explicit language and imagery. Suitable only for ages 18 and over.
Not a lot has changed from when I used to work full time. During my 9-5 days I used my lunch hour to write. I still spend it writing or editing. At the moment I’m taking a coffee break from moving and unpacking to read my manuscript, “What About Us”. I’m about 10,000 words in, and so far so good 🤙How do you spend your lunch break?

LETTERS TO MOLLY by #DevneyPerry
“Two broken hearts. One second chance. A must-read book of 2019.” Molly Alcott didn’t expect to open her mailbox one summer morning and find an old letter stuffed between bills and a supermarket flyer. Penned in familiar handwriting, dated over fifteen years ago, the letter was written to Molly after her first date with the man she’ll never forget.
Week after week, new letters appear. Each marks an event in the history of their epic love affair. Each heals a wound. Each holds the confession of the man who still owns Molly’s heart.
The letters are full of promise, hope and love, but truth be told, Molly wishes she could unread them all.
Because the man who wrote these letters is not the one sending them.

Four Meaningful Words will be releasing July 31, 2019!!! Blurb:
Four words posed in a question started the beginning of our future.
Will you marry me?
Ten years of love and laughter, triumphs and failures, losses and gains later, and four words threatened to end it all.
Everything has a beginning and an end. I just never saw mine coming. Especially when I finally thought we were getting it all.
Until my husband and lifeline uttered…. I want a divorce.
Only I had four words of my own. Words that should be said out of happiness and pure joy. Words I’d been dying to say, but never could. A sentence that he may never hear now that he didn’t want to be my forever anymore.

"Sexy Filthy Boss was all kinds of flirty fun with one hell of a spectacular ending!" - Amazon Reviewer⠀
𝐒𝐄𝐗𝐘 𝐅𝐈𝐋𝐓𝐇𝐘 𝐁𝐎𝐒𝐒 (𝐖𝐇𝐈𝐓𝐄 𝐂𝐎𝐋𝐋𝐀𝐑 𝐁𝐑𝐎𝐓𝐇𝐄𝐑𝐒 #𝟏
) (LInks in bio)⠀
He’s the sexy alpha male in the corner office who goes through assistants faster than free donuts in the breakroom.⠀
I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.⠀
The owner of the company is clear—hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation—we do it together.⠀
It doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.⠀
No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.⠀
But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.⠀

🌹🌹🌹NEW RELEASE🌹🌹🌹 Violent Ends, Series: White Monarch #2
BY Jessica Hawkins IS NOW LIVE!! BLURB:
I had a life, love, and future to give.
Until my enemy took a wife.
The devil has a name, and it’s Cristiano de la Rosa. On my wedding day, he was the last man I expected to see standing at the altar. He wants to make me his queen. His brother wants to rescue his princess.
Getting Cristiano to lose control becomes the name of the game, and the stakes are life and death. But as truth and lies blur, loyalty is tested, and our chemistry threatens to reach the melting point, the prize grows less clear. Either freedom no longer means what I think it does, or Cristiano is as devious as everyone says, and he’s mastered the art of playing my mind.
All I know for certain is that nothing is certain. And all you need to know? This is a love story.
But even love stories have to end.

🖤 HAPPY VIOLENT ENDS RELEASE DAY! 🖤 I’m still recovering from furiously writing this intense, sexy, slow-burn love story (the hero of this installment may be one rough & dangerous alpha but you better believe it’s still a love story). Violent Ends will challenge everything you think you know about Cristiano, Diego, and their cartel world! Happy happy reading, you guys! Let me know if you’ve gotten yours!
The devil had a name—Cristiano de la Rosa—but from this day forward, I would call him husband.

RUCKUS (Sinners of Saint 3) @authorljshen
NOW A TOP 15 AMAZON BESTSELLER
They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They're right.
No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking.
He is my forbidden, shiny apple.
The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister's ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzed into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman. My white knight has finally arrived. Hopefully, he isn’t too late.
They say the brightest stars burn out the fastest. They’re right.
She sets my mind on fire.
All smart mouth, snarky attitude and a huge heart.
In a world where everything is dull, she shines like Sirius.
Eleven years ago, fate tore us apart.
This time, I dare it to try.
Getting to her is a battlefield, but man, that’s why they call me Ruckus.
Rosie LeBlanc is about to find out how hard I can fight.
And conquering her will be the sweetest victory.
RUCKUS is a complete standalone and a part of the Sinners of Saint series

All I’ve ever had wanted is for you to feel safe with me. I just want to be the one thing you don’t want to live without. That’s all.
🏀Teardrop Shot 🏀 is an all-new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Tijan @tijansbooks
and is coming June 24th!
I asked for his criteria for bed buddies–that's the PG version.
He swore at me and said he didn’t do groupies. And just like that, our friendship was off to a great start.
Reese Forster was the starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder.
Gorgeous. Cocky. Loved by the nation.
He’s also attending preseason basketball training camp where I used to work.
Correction: where I work again, because I was fired from my last job.
And I might have a tiny bit of baggage, but that’s normal. Right?
Reese and I shouldn’t have become friends. We shouldn’t have become roommates.
And we really shouldn’t have started sleeping together … (Except we did.) I’m adorably psychotic. He’s in the NBA.
This is not a disaster waiting to happen, at all. 🏀 Teardrop Shot is a 107k standalone with brand new characters. 📚 Pre-order your copy today!
