Rhythm & Blu by SL Jennings ~ COVER REVEAL

I fell in love with a boy whose laughter was the soundtrack of my heart. And I played it on repeat until life’s street lights flickered on and stole him away.

Riot Blu. Top 40 fuckboi. Paparazzi player. Trashy reality TV trainwreck.

But once upon a time, he was the boy next door.

Once upon a time, he was every note in every song on every mix tape he had ever made for me.

Now he’s back. A lot more arrogant. A little more tortured. And more gorgeous than any memory I held dear could do justice.

I know no good can come from being anywhere near him. But Seattle is only so big, and if I’m going to get the exclusive of my career, I have to swallow my pride, take that dreaded walk down memory lane and agree to his terms. Move in with him. Immerse myself in his life—the life he left me to build. And try not to fall back in love with the man who ripped my world in two.

Havoc boxed set by Autumn Grey ~ Cover Re-Reveal & Sarah A’s Review

A three-month modelling contract in Paris.

Two strangers drawn together by fate.

A stalker hell-bent on keeping them apart.

Selene Michaels is determined to never let anyone make her feel inferior again. After a painful divorce, she finds herself in Paris on a working holiday, hopeful that this will be the opportunity she has been waiting for. She intends to have fun and maybe find someone to flirt with; someone who will show her a good time, treat her right. What she does not expect to find is Remington St. Germain and his adorable son, Adrien. Remington is intense, devastatingly hot and a Prince Charming on the outside, but a dirty talking, insatiable devil behind closed doors and not the type to give up on something that he wants. Adrien makes her loss almost bearable. Selene soon realizes that life with Remington is not only interesting but adventurous and dangerous. Someone is eager to keep Remington and her apart and will go to great lengths to make sure that happens.

Remington is at a crossroads. He can either let Selene go, forget about her. Or pursue her with determination, just like he does everything else. Otherwise, he will be right back where he was before she came into his life. The clock is ticking, and danger looms closer. He will do anything to save the woman who is fast becoming a part of his soul.

Sometimes life gives you a second chance. But what happens when danger threatens that chance?

HAVOC

I’m really glad I have this entire series to read one right after the other.  I don’t think I could handle having to wait to see what is coming after the way Havoc ended.  I’ve read worse cliffhangers, but this one was still a doozy!

Havoc is a novella, so it was a pretty quick read.  I’m usually not a huge fan of novella series but, judging by the way this first book of the series was written, it was an appropriate way to tell this particular story.  This book set up the world well, it gave just enough information about the characters to make me care for them while leaving so much left unsaid I’m dying to jump into the next book, Obliterate.

I loved the characters in this book, especially Selene.  She was so broken in the prologue, it was good to see how much she had healed and grown once we got to know her in the present chapters.  I only wish we would have been able to see some of that healing, it would have really rounded out the book, for me.  That being said, the confidence she projected, even when she was feeling unsure on the inside, was wonderful.  It was great to read about a regular sized girl loving herself and helping other girls learn to love themselves, too.

Remington was so interesting.  For all we’ve learned about him in Havoc he is still such an enigma.  I can’t wait to learn more about him and his past, I have no doubt it’ll be fascinating.  On the surface, he seems magnanimous and caring, but I have a feeling that is only one extraordinary layer of this intriguing man.  Regardless of whatever else he proves to be, there is no doubt the man is a wonderful father, above all else, that gives him all the bonus points in my book.

While there was a lot of world setting and character building in this book, it never felt stale or boring.  Autumn Grey was able to weave in these building blocks with a plot that was interesting and compelling.  It wasn’t particularly fast moving, but it held my interest easily.  I can’t wait to see what is coming up next for Selene and Remington!

OBLITERATE

Can we just all agree that when a novella series revolves around one couple and there is uncertainty about their relationship at the end of the first book the presence of a second book, in and of itself, is a spoiler as to what will happen in said second book?  Yes?  Great.  That makes this so much easier.

As far as cliffhangers go, I loved the one in Havoc.  They didn’t separate for horrible reasons, they didn’t hate each other, there was nothing to make up to one another.  They had only split because they thought it was the only way for everyone to stay safe.  And isn’t that kind of selflessness a true demonstration of how much two people care for one another?  I was just ecstatic Selene and Remington didn’t have a huge amount of hurt to overcome.  They just each had to decide that what they were building was worth the risk and after Havoc I was certain they were building something life altering, for everyone involved.

Obliterate spent a decent amount of time having Selene and Remington bare the most broken parts of themselves to one another.  It was a wonderful demonstration of just how much they truly cared and trusted one another.  Between these deeply intimate and emotional moments, this book was rife with action in the form of a secretive woman threatening their lives.  The heart pounding moments were a great counterpoint those more deeply emotional scenes and drove the book, and Selene and Remington’s relationship, forward in a really amazing way.

I’m neck deep in this series and can not wait to see what the final book, Mend, has to reveal.  I have my theories as to what is going on and who is involved but I’m going to hold on to those, for now, to see how close I am.

MEND

I think, after reading the first two books in this series, the bar was set a little too high for me.  This just didn’t quite stand up to the rest of the series, for me.  It was still a good book, I never had a hard time getting through it, it just lacked some of the magic of the first two.

I still loved Selene and Remington, they were great together, there just wasn’t enough of them being a couple.  I also missed the wonderful dynamic Adrien added to their chemistry, he was largely a background character in this installment of the series and that made me sad, he was so wonderful in the first two books.

The real issue in this book was there was just too much going on.  New characters, tons of storylines that needed to be wrapped up and even more giant developments completely contained within this novella.  Had this been a full-length novel it may have worked, as each storyline could have been fully fleshed out and dealt with in with the delicacy they deserved.  Since it wasn’t, everything felt rushed. It could have been truly amazing, had it been twice as long.

While I was trying to not be over-critical, as I’m sure this was an effect of the amount of action in this book, it seemed there were some issues with the timeline. One such incident was when the first day they’d been at the hospital with Selene; a few things happen, which had added up to several hours, then Remington says they’d been there for 48 hours, then in the next scene he speaks about how long yesterday (the day Selene was injured) was.  There were a handful of these type of things that momentarily took me out of the scenes.

Overall, I enjoyed this series.  It was engrossing and entertaining.  The world was rich and well-built, I could really feel myself experiencing things along with the characters.  Foremost, was the character development.  I loved each and every one of them and I never felt like they took giant leaps outside of the realms of who they were.  My only wish would be that the final book was either much longer or broken into at least two books, to really flesh out and finish all the storylines more fully.

Autumn Grey writes sexy, angsty contemporary romance that always ends with a happy ever after.  She loves reading stories with flawed and quirky characters, broody alphas and sassy heroines.

Cover Re-Reveal ~ On the Ropes series by Aly Martinez

Today we are sharing the incredible new covers for the ON THE ROPES Series by Aly Martinez. Check them out below, along with links to purchase the titles. Be sure to follow Aly’s newsletter for details on her upcoming releases!

 

 

 

Fighting Silence (On the Ropes, #1)

Buy it here or read it for FREE on KindleUnlimited:

Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Synopsis:

Sound is an abstract concept for most people. We spend our lives blocking out the static in order to focus on what we believe is important. But what if, when the clarity fades into silence, it’s the obscure background noise that you would give anything to hold on to?

I’ve always been a fighter. With parents who barely managed to stay out of jail and two little brothers who narrowly avoided foster care, I became skilled at dodging the punches life threw at me. Growing up, I didn’t have anything I could call my own, but from the moment I met Eliza Reynolds, she was always mine. I became utterly addicted to her and the escape from reality we provided each other. Throughout the years, she had boyfriends and I had girlfriends, but there wasn’t a single night that I didn’t hear her voice.

You see, meeting the love of my life at age thirteen was never part of my plan. However, neither was gradually going deaf at the age of twenty-one.

They both happened anyway.

Now, I’m on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.

Fighting for my career.

Fighting the impending silence.

Fighting for her.

Every night, just before falling asleep, she sighs as a final conscious breath leaves her.

I think that’s the sound I’ll miss the most.

—————————-

Fighting Shadows (On the Ropes, #2)

Buy it here or read it for FREE on KindleUnlimited:

Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Synopsis:

I come from a family of fighters. I always thought I’d follow in their shadows, becoming unstoppable in the ring. That changed the day I saved the life of a woman I loved, but could never have.

My brother hailed me as a hero, and my reward was a wheelchair.

Paralyzed, my life became an inescapable nightmare.

Until I met her.

Ash Mabie had a heart-stopping smile and a laugh that numbed the rage and resentment brewing inside of me. She showed me that even the darkest night still had stars, and it didn’t matter one bit that you had to lie in the weeds to see them.

I was a jaded asshole who fell for a girl with a knack for running away. I couldn’t even walk but I would have spent a lifetime chasing her.

Now, I’m on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.

Fighting the shadows of our past.

Fighting to reclaim my future.

Fighting for her.

—————————-

 

Fighting Solitude (On the Ropes, #3)

Buy it here or read it for FREE on KindleUnlimited:

Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Synopsis:

I was born a fighter. Abandoned by my parents, I spent my life forging my own path—one guided by my fists and paved with pain.

Untouchable in the ring, I destroyed everyone who faced me, but that’s where my victories ended. Outside the ropes, I repeatedly failed the few people who loved me. Including my best friend, Liv James—the one person I’d die to protect.

Even though I didn’t deserve her, Liv never stopped believing in me. Never gave up. Never let go. After all, she understood what I’d lost, because she’d lost it too.

Liv was everything to me, but she was never truly mine.

That was going to change.

I lost my first love, but I refused to lose my soulmate.

Now, I’m on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.

Fighting to be the man she deserves.

Fighting the solitude of our pasts.

Fighting for her.

Cover Re-Reveal ~ Beauty in the Ashes by Micalea Smeltzer

crr-banner

beauty-in-the-ashes-ebook-coverSome stories are a fairytale…but this isn’t one.

Caelan Gregory’s life fell apart the night he went home and opened the door to find his whole family murdered. Since then, his life has held no meaning. He’s angry. He’s bitter. He’s barely human anymore. There’s nothing left to remind him of the straight A student, and football quarterback he once was…but he wasn’t a good person then, and he’s certainly not a good person now. He’s retreated into a world where all that exists is numbness and his passion for painting.

When Sutton Hale moves into the apartment across the hall from Caelan she’s not prepared for her reaction to him. Something in his broken blue eyes calls to her—after all she’s always had an irrational need to fix everything.

But Caelan doesn’t do relationships or feelings. He does drugs and alcohol. However, he can’t ignore his desire to get to know the raven-haired woman across the hall.

Two broken souls trying to mend one another.

But not everything can be fixed.

In the end, Caelan and Sutton will have to learn that there is beauty in the ashes.
