Release Day Blitz + 5-Star Review: Real Sexy by Meghan March

 

 

 

Real Sexy AMAZON

In Nashville, country stars are a dime a dozen.

I swore I’d never get caught up with one, but Boone Thrasher made a liar out of me.

I said I’d never put my heart on the line, but he didn’t ask before he stole it.

Now we’re facing my worst fears, and we’ll see if this country boy is tough enough to see it through.

Girls like me don’t get happily ever afters… but maybe he’ll prove that wrong too.

Tracey’s Review

Game over. I’m done. She’s it. The one. Now I have to make her fall in love with me.

You met him in REAL DIRTY. Now, in REAL SEXY, the second book in the Real Dirty Duet, author Meghan March shows us just how sexy it is when country’s bad boy Boone Thrasher goes all in.

Boone and Ripley have zoomed right through the ‘getting to know you’ phase of their relationship, meeting so many roadblocks that it’s a wonder they’ve come through and are still talking to each other. But when Boone Thrasher puts his mind to something, as Ripley discovers, you might as well cry ‘Uncle’ and settle in for the ride. This doesn’t mean that Rip is a pushover, though. One of the things that Boone likes most about her is that she’s her own woman, willing and able to make her own way without riding on his coattails. And darned if that isn’t one of the things he loves most about her, which makes him sexier than ever in my book.

Meghan’s books are always going to be at the top of my list, because, oh, my goodness. Action, romance, cliffhangers galore, they’re a ride that I don’t want to miss, each and every time. I adore Boone and Ripley, and love the way that they are together, which is, simply, real. They’re each other’s biggest cheerleaders, and couldn’t quit each other if they had to.

One of my favorite things in a book is when friends we’ve met in other reads come to visit. Seeing those folks here, in REAL SEXY, rounds things out just perfectly. And, too, Meghan has introduced a certain someone, namely one Zane Frisco, that I’d love to get to know better, so, Meghan, if you’re reading this, take note. REAL SEXY is 5+ stars worth of sweep you off your feet, feel good, still so darned sexy goodness, and it needs to be on your TBR. Read it now, thank me later.

 

Real Dirty AMAZONI have everything a guy could want—a new single burning up the charts, more money than a simple country boy could spend, and a woman I’m planning to marry.

Until she doesn’t show up for my proposal.

The life I thought was so perfect, isn’t.

The guy who thought he had everything, doesn’t.

I’ve got my heart on lockdown, but life sends me straight into the path of a mouthy bartender who puts me in my place.

Now the only place I want to put her is under me.

I thought I was done with love, but maybe I’m just getting started.

Duke of Manhattan by Louise Bay
Release Date: May 16th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Duke of Manhattan, an all-new contemporary romance by Louise Bay is available now!!!

DukeofManhattan.Ebook

I was born into British aristocracy, but I’ve made my fortune in Manhattan. New York is now my kingdom.

Back in Britain my family are fighting over who’s the next Duke of Fairfax. The rules say it’s me–if I’m married. It’s not a trade-off worth making. I could never limit myself to just one woman.

Or so I thought until my world is turned upside down. Now, the only way I can save the empire I built is to inherit the title I’ve never wanted — so I need a wife.

To take my mind off business I need a night that’s all pleasure. I need to bury myself in a stranger.

The skim of Scarlett King’s hair over my body as she bends over . . .

The scrape of her nails across my chest as she screams my name . . .

The bite of her teeth on my shoulder just as we both reach the edge . . .

It all helps me forget.

I just didn’t bargain on finding my one night stand across the boardroom table the next day.

She might be my latest conquest but I have a feeling Scarlett King might just conquer me.

A sexy, standalone romance.

Tracey’s Review

What’s a duke to do when he finds himself in need of a duchess? Just one in name only, mind you, long enough to secure his empire, and keep things just the way that they are, thank you very much. If it’s Ryder Westbury, Duke of Fairfax, and New York royalty, he seeks solace in the arms of an unknown lovely, and vows to think about it tomorrow. Scarlett King, sister of the the Max King, is a capable businesswoman in her own right, but those pesky loans coming due are making the future look a little less than bright. Add to that the fact that she can’t find a man that keeps her interest for more than one date, and, well, a girls’ night out seems just the thing to take her mind off things. Who knew that a one night stand could change two lives so completely?

Oh, my gosh, this book. I’m pretty sure that I say that each successive man in Louise Bay’s books is my favorite, but Ryder Westbury has literally stolen the crown. Funny, sexy, and unabashedly single, the last thing on Ryder’s mind is getting married and settling down, even if it’s the only way to keep the family estate in the capable hands of his sister, and his business in his own hands. What to do, what to do? Enter one Scarlett King.

I cannot express how much I love Scarlett. She’s had a less than stellar experience at love, and is pretty sure that she’s never going to meet another man that will make her heart sing. She’s hardly expecting that a passionate night with the über-sexy Ryder Westbury will change the course of her life. But, oh, how he does.

These two are perfect for each other. Ryder, playboy player that he is, has a kind heart, a deep love of his family, and just the right amount of snark to keep things interesting. Scarlett is more than able to hold her own with him, and her sass, sparkle, and innate kindness show Ryder just what he’s been missing.

Louise’s books have long been some of my favorites, but I can easily say that DUKE OF MANHATTAN is leading the pack, and definitely one of my top romantic reads of 2017. There is not one bit of this story that I did not find myself loving, and getting to see old friends and favorites made it even more enjoyable. I know a book is a winner when I find myself saying, ‘I am just absolutely loving reading this!’ over and over again, and when I can’t put it down. DUKE OF MANHATTAN wins on both counts, and I couldn’t recommend it more. 5 sexy, sweet, HEA stars for Scarlett and Ryder. If you’re a fan of Louise, you truly don’t want to miss this one, and, if you don’t know Louise Bay and her writing yet, this one will make you a fan for sure.

Excerpt

Still staring at my blank phone screen, I stumble toward the door and of course I walk straight into someone. Of course. Because to- day is going to be shitty in every possible way. Luckily, I manage to avoid getting chai latte on either of us; it barely spills over the lid and only dribbles onto my hand.

“I’m so sorry!” I say at the exact same time she does, and I look up to see a familiar face staring back, but I can’t place it.

She blinks azure eyes and then her whole face lights up. “Zoey?

Zoey Quinlin? Oh my God!”

She’s hugging me before I realize what’s happening. I wrap the hand not covered in latte around her back and return the embrace. She pulls back, still holding my shoulders, and smiles. “Holy crap! It’s been over ten years! Oh my God.” She pauses and glances around before adding in a softer voice, “It’s Dixie. Dixie Braddock. You used to babysit me at my family’s summer cottage in Maine. You were friends with my brother, Jude.”

“Holy shit! Dixie Braddock?” I can’t believe it. The last time I saw her she was thirteen. Wheat hair; pink, suntanned skin; freckles across her nose and chronically scabbed-up knees from trying to keep up with her older sisters and brother, who were all daredevils on their bikes and skateboards and surfboards. Babysitting them—well, the girls, anyway—for the two years I lived in Maine was a highlight of my summers. And so was seeing their brother. Shit, I hadn’t thought of Jude Braddock in a while. I find myself smiling now that I am.

“You live in San Fran?” she questions as she takes my elbow and leads me over to the counter and hands me a napkin for my latte- soaked hand.

“Yeah. Stayed local after college,” I explain as I put down the latte and wipe my hand. “And you live here?”

She nods, her sleek blond bob moving like a curtain around her face. She looks close to the tiny thing I babysat but much more refined and beautiful now. I do the math: she’s only twenty-four, but she looks more put together than any twenty-four-year-old I’ve known.

“Yeah. I went to school for sports media, then interned with the San Francisco Thunder hockey team, and they hired me full- time this year.” Her eyes dart around, and her voice drops again. “Jude plays for them, so I use my mom’s last name, Wynn, so no one thinks he got me the job. He didn’t.”

“Jude is in San Francisco?” I don’t know why I felt the need to say that with such breathless shock. I knew he made the NHL, but I had thought he was playing in Milwaukee. That’s where he was last time I Googled him, which was three years ago, before I married Adam.

“Yeah. Got traded a couple years ago,” Dixie explains. “So how’s your family? Where’s your dad preaching now?”

“He’s retired. Mom and Dad are in Sacramento,” I explain. “My brother, Morgan, is a teacher here in San Francisco.”

“Morgan!” She laughs and her cheeks turn a little pink. “Sadie, Winnie and I had such a crush on your brother when we were little. Remember we used to keep begging you to invite him over when you were watching us?”

I nod and can’t help but smile back. Yeah, that memory hasn’t faded. The Braddock girls wanted my brother to come over, but I never invited him. Not because he was gay, which I already knew at that point, but because if Morgan was around, he would tease me about gawking at Jude, which I always did if he happened to come home before Mr. and Mrs. Braddock’s date night ended.

Dixie glances at her phone in her hand, and I realize we both must have been looking at our screens when we collided. She frowns. “I have to go. I have a meeting at the arena in twenty.” She puts a hand on my arm again. “But I would love to catch up with you, and I know Winnie and Sadie would too. They’re going to be in town this weekend. Would you be able to do brunch?”

“Yeah, I can do brunch,” I reply and am shocked at how excited I am at her suggestion. I haven’t really done much of anything social since the separation. I kind of lost touch with a lot of my friends after marrying Adam and adopted his circle of friends. And they all promptly orphaned me after the separation. I didn’t care much because I didn’t feel up to social interaction, but suddenly this seems like a pleasant distraction from my reality. The Braddock family was one of my favorite parts of my childhood.

“Amazing!” Dixie almost squeals. “How about tomorrow. Eleven?”

I nod. “Where?”

“You pick.”

“MKT?” I blurt out because it’s in my hotel and I’m too flustered to think of anything else. To be honest, I don’t even know what they serve for brunch.

“Great! Sadie loves that place, and she’s normally impossible to please.” She hugs me again. “See you tomorrow! Winnie and Sadie are going to be so excited!”

And then, before I can even lift my hand to wave, she’s back out the door. She never even got a coffee, but she doesn’t seem to notice. I’m more dumbfounded and confused than I was from the phone call with Minerva. The Braddocks are here. Well, at least Jude and Dixie are here. In San Francisco. Where I live. When the hell did that happen?

I look around the coffee shop to make sure there’s no one else from my past lurking around. A teacher, a neighbor, another sister of an old unconsummated love. Although Jude was my only unrequited love, but he did have three sisters. Whom I will be having brunch with tomorrow. Crazy!

I slip out of Peet’s and concentrate on the clicking of my heels as I make my way back over to my office. I finally take a sip of my jostled latte. It’s barely warm but the caffeine still manages to clear my head a little. Not enough that eagle-eye Marti doesn’t notice something is up.

“Everything okay?” she wants to know as she stands at her desk, gathering things she needs for her day and placing them in her bag. “You look more out of it than you did before the coffee.”

“I ran into someone I haven’t seen in a long time,” I murmur, and for some reason Jude’s seventeen-year-old face floats through my head, not Dixie’s from this morning. “The last time I saw her was in Maine eleven years ago, so it was surprising.”

“Wow.” Marti takes a break from filling her Michael Kors satchel with listing flyers. “Small world, huh? I love when that happens. Unless it’s someone I hate. Was it someone you hate?”

“No. Not at all,” I reply and drop down gently into my seat. “She and her sisters were sweethearts. Seems like they still are. I’ll definitely find out, because I’m having brunch with them tomorrow.”

“Cool.” Marti isn’t paying attention anymore. Her eyes are focused across the room on Parker McDavid, who is the owner of our company. He’s midforties, tall with a dad bod that is oddly at- tractive, probably because he covers it in perfectly tailored designer clothes. His dark hair is graying in all the right places, like George Clooney’s, and his eyes are warm and his smile is kind. But he’s an astute businessman who expects a lot from his Realtors, and Marti is constantly trying to impress him. I am too, if I’m being honest, but I’m new. She’s not new, but she’s still hungry.

“I’m going to tell Parker about the deal I just closed, and then I’m off for a condo showing,” Marti explains and barely even waves good-bye as she hustles toward the kitchen Parker just disappeared into for his morning croissant and English Breakfast tea.

I open my laptop and pull up my email, determined to keep my mind focused on work. I need to send a follow-up email regarding the potential Haight listing, but my brain is bouncing from Adam to Dixie.

One future encounter I’m dreading—confronting Adam—and one I’m looking forward to—seeing the Braddock sisters. But the one that isn’t destined to happen is the one that fills me with excitement I haven’t felt in a long time—the potential that since I’m meeting three Braddock siblings I might also run into the fourth: Jude.

 

Michel’s Review

Victoria Denault has scored big and totally won my heart with her new hockey series, The San Francisco Thunder.  I loved everything about this book, from the romance to the dynamic secondary characters.  This book came to life and all of the characters had my complete attention.

Jude Braddock is the living, breathing, sex god of the San Francisco Thunder.  Not only does he score big on the ice, he also scores big with the ladies. His bedroom moves are legendary.  His “hockey stick” is an internet sensation.  So how could a man of this caliber have women problems? Very easily, he hasn’t been discreet nor has he been careful with his tryst.  Women are showing up on his doorstep, his phone is ringing all hours of the night, and his sexual escapades are on the internet.  Maybe it’s time to move and become more discreet, The one thing he won’t do is settle down to one woman.  That is until he runs into his sisters ( the sorority) former babysitter, Zoey.  Zoey is the one girl that got away.  This time around he’s going to make sure he catches her and doesn’t ply her with Boones Farm wine.  This time he’s doing the seduction right.

Zoey has just split from her husband.  The divorce procedures have turned quite nasty.  She’s working her tail off trying to establish a new career in real estate while trying to hang onto what is rightfully hers.  When she runs into her childhood friends, the Braddocks, it makes life seem a little better.  Reuniting with old friends is what she needed.  Hooking up with Jude Braddock is a bonus.  First she has to finalize her divorce and get her feet on solid ground.  She also needs to stay away from Boones Farm wine at all cost.

Zoey and Jude are doing more than rekindling an old friendship.  They are falling in love, but it’s going to take a miracle before either one admits it.  Miracles are known to happen.

I absolutely loved every moment in this book, from the snarky sorority sisters to the team dynamics,every character added something exceptionally special to Zoey and Jude’s romance.

I have read every novel Victoria Denault has written.  Score is my favorite book thus far.  Her growth as a writer and character development has excelled by leaps and bounds. I can’t wait to see what comes next in the San Francisco Thunder series.

 

Look for Slammed… book two in the San Francisco Thunder Series by Victoria DeNault…

Coming… December 5 , 2017

The Queen And The Cure

The Bird And Sword Chronicles – Book 2

By Amy Harmon

Buy: Amazon / Amazon UK / B & N / ITunes / Kobo / Paperback

Blurb

There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart.

Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He’d never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him.

But there is more to a man than his parentage. More to a man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power.

Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

Michel’s Review

The Bird and the Sword Chronicles saga continues with the second release, The Queen and the Cure by Amy Harmon.   I was quickly drawn back to the land of Jeru and their journey into a new era.  This book can be read as a stand alone novel but I would highly recommend reading the first book in the series.  It gives the reader a richer and more in depth reading experience.

The gifted are no longer the outcasts of society.  They no longer have to live in fear.  Like most things change takes time.  It takes courage to take the first steps.  It takes courage to stand out among men.  Kjell of Jeru can walk into battle and defeat any enemy.  He’s fearless but accepting his gift as a healer is another story.  He has taken too many lives in the past without thought, how can a man of violence have the gift of healing.  And what is the cost of using this gift.  He no longer knows who he is or where his place among the new kingdom of Jeru is.  He may be the bastard son of the king but he is not royalty.

When Kjell is sent by his brother, King Zoltev, to finish off the birdmen, he doesn’t realize that this quest is more than a expedition for the king. It is his destiny.  When he saves a girl from death and takes her visions to heart, it is the beginning of a journey that will once again change the world as he knows it.

Without giving away any spoilers, this book is another epic tale that is more than a fantasy adventure.  Amy Harmon once again delivers a moving story that illuminates the human spirit. I could not put this book down.

Synopsis

Swallow, daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them ‘til they’ve time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, ‘til the hour. You won’t speak and you won’t tell, you won’t call on heaven or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, daughter. Stay alive.

The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn’t speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would sell his soul and lose his only son to the sky.

My father has a claim to the throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother’s words to come to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free.

But freedom will require escape, and I’m a prisoner of my mother’s curse and my father’s greed. I can’t speak or make a sound, and I can’t wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love . . . a little bird?

Add Brothers Series – Book 3

By Jasinda Wilder

Buy: Amazon  / B & N / IBooks / Kobo

Blurb

Brock Badd is everything except bad. He’s sexy, sweet, strong, and every other good thing I never thought I wanted in a man. I always thought I needed the real bad boys, the ones that screw you senseless and pull your hair and aren’t there to talk about it in the morning.

 

I’ve always been a one-night stand kind of girl, and sometimes I wouldn’t even stick around for a full night. Brock was supposed to be a one-night stand—that’s how it started out, at least. Only, what was supposed to be a fun one-time-only hookup with a hot local guy ended up with me discovering Brock’s potency six different ways by breakfast.

 

That was all it took. One night with Brock, and I was hooked. But hooked doesn’t mean ready for a relationship.

 

That’s what he wants. And deep down, I’m starting to fear that’s what I want too.

 

I’m just not sure I’m ready for it.

 

I mean, he’s the literal epitome of tall, dark, and handsome, plus he’s a pilot…with a six-pack and perfect hair and a smile to melt me from the inside out. How’s a girl supposed to resist that? I couldn’t. I can’t. I’ve tried, but I keep going back for more.

 

I’ve got it bad, real BADD.

Michel’s Review

Badd To The Bone by Jasinda Wilder is the third book in the Badd Brothers series.  This book is quite different from the two previous Badd Brothers books.  First of all, most of the story takes place outside of Ketchikan, Alaska.  There is very little of the Badd Brothers and their family dynamics in this book.  In fact, Badd To The Bone is not really a Badd Brothers story even though Brock Badd is the hero.  This is Claire Collins story and it’s a doozy.

I have gone back and forth on how to rate this book.  I have deleted several drafts of this review.  I have struggled with my reactions to this book because it was not one of my favorite Jasinda Wilder books.  I honestly did not like the heroine Claire Collins.

Although the Badd Brothers series is more in the erotic romance genre, there was almost too much sex.  At times I felt like the sex was overshadowing the story and it started to get too predictable and a bit boring. In many ways Brock Badd seemed like a sexual puppet dancing to Claire Collins whims.  Usually at this point I put the book down or start skimming to the end.  What held me back from doing so was my faith in Jasinda Wilder as a writer.  I knew she had more to tell the readers.  There was more to Claire than her nympho tendencies and kinky fantasies.  There was something hiding beneath the surface, something bigger than her daddy issues and relationship issues.  As the story unfolded and revelations about Claire’s past come to light, it is only the beginning of Claire’s journey.  A very broken woman striving to piece herself back together one tear drop at a time.  It takes courage to face the demons that haunt your soul.  It takes even more courage to put them to rest and take that first step towards a healthy future.

I admired how Brock Badd was willing to fight for the woman he loved.  He knew he couldn’t fix her but he could hold her together when all the pieces of her soul were shattering beyond her control.  He gave her the courage to finally heal.

This is why I gave this book 5 Stars.  Jasinda Wilder took a very harsh character on an emotional journey that brought her the right kind love in the end.

I am looking forward to heading back to Ketchikan, Alaska for more Badd Brothers romantic adventures.

SYNOPSIS:

Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, right? That’s what they say, at least. I went into that day hoping I’d get the happiest day of my life. What I got? The worst. I mean, you really can’t get any worse of a day without someone actually dying.

So…I may have gotten just a little drunk, and maybe just a tad impetuous…

And landed myself in a dive bar somewhere in Alaska, alone, still in my wedding dress, half-wasted and heart-broken.

***

Eight brothers, one bar.

Sounds like the beginning to a bad joke, yeah?

I kinda think so.

Wanna hear another joke? A girl walks into a bar, soaking wet and wearing a wedding dress.

I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. She was hammered, for one thing, and heartbroken for another. I’ve chased enough tail to know better. That kinda thing only leads to clinginess, and a clingy female is the last thing on this earth I need.

I got a bar needs running, and only me to run it—at least until my seven wayward brothers decide to show their asses up…

Then this chick walks in, fine as hell, wearing a soaked wedding dress that leaves little enough to the imagination—and I’ve got a hell of an imagination.

I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. Not so much as a finger, not even innocently.

Synopsis

I was a Sixty-Eight Whiskey—a combat medic. So when I hear someone shout “MEDIC!” training just kicks in. It’s automatic, immediate. I don’t think I even saw the guy whose leg I tended to, not really. All I saw was him. Zane Badd. His tuxedo fit him like he’d been sewn into it, and his eyes reflected the fury and the hardness of a combat veteran, but when he looked at me, he just…softened. By the time I had his brother patched, Zane and I were both covered in blood, and I knew I had to have him.

The trouble with Zane isn’t getting him, it’s keeping him.

And the trouble with me is, even if I could hold onto a man like Zane, I wouldn’t know what to do with him. It’s not in my nature, and if life has taught me anything, it’s to not trust anyone, least of all men like Zane. He’s a warrior through and through, hard, muscular, gorgeous, tenacious, and yet oddly tender toward me.

Experience and instincts are telling me to run from Zane Badd as fast as possible, but my heart and my body are telling me to stay, to hold on and not let go. Yeah, it’s a conflict as old as humanity itself, but it’s brand new for me.

*   *   *

Life as Navy SEAL doesn’t exactly prepare you for normality. Yeah, I can tend bar and goof off with my seven crazy brothers, but what do I do when the woman of my dreams—dreams I didn’t know I’d had until I saw her—explodes into my life like a frag grenade? I’m trained to attack, to win, to survive at any costs, and figuring out what to do about a woman like Amarantha Quinn will take every scrap of tenacity and courage I possess. Combat is easy, it turns out, in comparison to facing your own fears and scars.

And then sometimes, just when you think you’ve got it finally figured out, fate throws you a screwball and sends everything FUBAR.

Blurb

Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.

 

Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on.

 

Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.

 

But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken.

Excerpt

EXCERPT

“He apologized. Don’t you think you should do the polite thing and at least hear him out?”
“I don’t know.”
“You don’t know, or you’re just too scared to find out what will happen if you do?”
“Do we have to do this right now?” I sigh, and he tosses his arm around my shoulders and pulls me into his side.
“We’ve been doing this for months now. I’ve seen the way you look at him when you think no one will notice, and I see the way he looks at you, not giving a fuck if everyone sees. Even when he thought you and I were a thing, he still made it perfectly clear to those who were watching that if by some chance he got a shot, you would be his.”
“I really think you are reading way too much into this.”
“Am I?”

Michel’s Review

The Mayson boom has detonated once again! Sage Mayson didn’t see the explosion coming, but all of us readers did!  We have been waiting for this book.

It’s been quite obvious that Sage Mayson and hairstylist Kimberly Cullen have a history.  They have been tip toeing around each other in the last few books.  It’s been quite clear that there are some hard feelings and a bit of hostility where these two were concerned.  To harbor those kind of emotions, there has to been some very valid reasons.  While the circumstances may have developed and come into play in the previous books, the cause and effect become very clear in Until Sage.  Unlike the other books, readers are going to see some serious Mayson groveling, a man on a mission to win his lady’s heart after he destroyed her.  Never fear, Sage is a Mayson, he has that magical Mayson quality that is going to make Kimberly’s ovaries explode.  She won’t make it easy on him. After all she has to protect her heart and take care of her own well being.

Without giving any spoilers away, this book was surprising.  The impressions from the previous books were only a small fraction of what was to come for Sage and Kimberly. I will say that once these two finally got together, it was emotional and very tender.  It is a must read in the Until series.

Aurora Rose Reynolds has delivered another swoon worthy explosive romance.

Release Blitz + 5+-Star Review: Real Dirty by Meghan March

 

Real Dirty AMAZONI have everything a guy could want—a new single burning up the charts, more money than a simple country boy could spend, and a woman I’m planning to marry.

Until she doesn’t show up for my proposal.

The life I thought was so perfect, isn’t.

The guy who thought he had everything, doesn’t.

I’ve got my heart on lockdown, but life sends me straight into the path of a mouthy bartender who puts me in my place.

Now the only place I want to put her is under me.

I thought I was done with love, but maybe I’m just getting started.

Tracey’s Review

Oh, my goodness, flames. Flames are shooting out of my e-reader, and I’m down for the count. Author Meghan March has proven time and again that she can bring the heat, and she has done an excellent job of it in REAL DIRTY, the first book in her new Real Dirty Duet.

But, wait, there’s more. Because not only are Boone and Ripley hotter than all heck together. The sass, the snark, the sarcasm, the humor, all of the things that Meghan does so well, are here and in fine form, as well, and watching the interactions between the two of them is truly entertaining, as well as downright combustible.

The intensity between Ripley and Boone is off the charts hot, and they have their hands full with each other, because they are both headstrong to the nth degree. This just serves to draw them to each other all the more, because what guy doesn’t want a woman that can swing a Louisville Slugger like a boss? And what strong woman doesn’t want a guy that will lighten her burden and make her feel like a goddess once in a while? See, match made in Heaven…

The groundwork has been laid for one heck of a follow-up in REAL SEXY, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it when it comes out. In the meantime, REAL DIRTY is, without a doubt, one of my most favorite reads recently, and is an easy 5+ stars for me. You’re going to want to meet Ripley and Boone yourselves, so do yourself a favor and snap this one up, like, stat.

 

Real Sexy AMAZONIn Nashville, country stars are a dime a dozen.

I swore I’d never get caught up with one, but Boone Thrasher made a liar out of me.

I said I’d never put my heart on the line, but he didn’t ask before he stole it.

Now we’re facing my worst fears, and we’ll see if this country boy is tough enough to see it through.

Girls like me don’t get happily ever afters… but maybe he’ll prove that wrong too.
