Rock Me 
Carly Phillips 

Publication Date: September 19th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Bodyguard Bad Boys … Sexy, Hot, and oh so protective!
A pop star in danger.
Her reluctant bodyguard.
A past they can’t deny.
Summer Michelle is on the verge of ultimate fame.
Ben Hollander has sworn off mixing business with pleasure.
But keeping his hands off of the sexy songstress is easier said than done and once the threat is neutralized, will she choose fame over love?

Summer and Ben's story was super sweet, and something I haven't read before. The perfect example of second chances and an undeniable attraction. This story was hot and romantic and frustrating all rolled up into an unforgettable little package. This was a new author for me, and I will be reading more from her in the future. I would, for sure Recommend this story to all the hopeless romantics out in the reader world.

[New Release] BEAUTY by Mary Catherine Gebhard @marycgebhard @ArdentPRose #UBReview #Excerpt #Giveaway


Hate Story #2
Mary Catherine Gebhard

Release Date: September 21, 2017
Genre: Dark Romance

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.
My prince was a Beast with blood on his hands and ice in his veins. My family offered to save me. The only price: leaving the tattered pieces of my heart behind.
Our love was irrational. Cruel. Unforgiving. Nothing like the storybooks said it should be—but it was perfect.
The longer we were apart, the more I lost myself. He was vicious and domineering, but I craved the submission. Together we were destructive, but I was addicted to the devastation. Still, I thought titles mattered. To my family I was princess, and to the Beast I was slave. I was too naïve to understand that even though he’d been my captor, he’d broken the shackles on my soul.
Once upon a time, I thought love meant happily ever after.
Now I know better.
The End.

"We’d destroyed each other, so together we could rise from the ashes."

This book...
Frankie and Anteros, what can I say...other than I want to live in their story forever! There were so many twists. There were so many turns. This world is dangerous, and nothing is safe. Their world is hot and undeniable. This book will stick with you, and leave you satisfied and utterly exhausted from the roller coaster of suspense and delightful darkness it drags you through. I couldn't stop reading this story. The pages never stopped turning. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK! It was a perfect end to a addictive beginning. I strongly suggest this duet to every dark story loving reader out there!

I was going insane, absolutely aching, and it was just instinct to touch myself. He grabbed my hand, lifting it so my fingers were just below his chin.
“Greedy girl,” he said. “Don’t you know your orgasm is mine? I own this.” He sucked my fingers until they were clean and I moaned, rubbing my thighs together. I was so overstimulated, I was sure I was going to come just from the friction. I rubbed my thighs harder and he laughed darkly, pushing me off him. I fell to the ground. 
Eyes still locked, Anteros reached behind and flipped over the coffee table. The glass crashed and shattered. Some shards hit my thigh, but I didn’t think about that or the mess or the possible danger because moments later Anteros was on the ground with me.
He crawled between my legs and spread them wide in the new space. I got to my elbows, watching him rapt.
“If you come without permission,” he said, licking a long, razor sharp trail from behind my knee to inside my thigh, “you will be punished.”

Check Out The First Book!

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale. 

I thought selling myself to a mafia boss was noble. So what if they called him the Beast? I grew up in rags, and he would lift me to riches. All I had to do was give him my soul. 

He was punishing. Insatiable. Captivating. Nothing like I expected him to be. Each day my reality blurred, leaving me wondering if I was slave or princess.

The longer I stayed, the more I lost myself to him. Even after every cruelty the Beast visited upon me, I longed for his touch. Even after every savage word he spoke, I begged for his lips. I thought the worst thing he could take was my body. I was too naïve to guard my heart.

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

Now I know better than to speak of happily ever afters. 
Beast is the first book in the Hate Story duet. About what it means to fall in love with the person who has absolutely destroyed you, it contains disturbing and graphic situations that may be a trigger for some.

[New Release] ROCK ME by Rebecca Brooke @RebeccaBrooke6 @GiveMeBooksBlog #UBReview

Rock Me
Rebecca Brooke

Release Date:
September 21, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Cover Me Darling

I am not a victim.
At least that’s what I wanted to believe. What I wanted the world to see. Five years of trying to find the girl I hid from the world.
I wouldn’t let the bullies win. I couldn’t.
What was I supposed to do when he walked into the building? He’d made my high school years a living hell.
But, he doesn’t recognize me.
How do I prove he didn’t break me? Simple, take him home for a one-night stand.
At least it sounded like a good idea at the time. 

Words really can't describe how much this book truly rocked! Mari and Cole were the second chance you don't really expect, but it was exactly what you need. No stone is unturned and no feeling is untouched. This was anew author for me, and I was not disappointed in the least. I loved it! I highly recommend this story for any fan of 2nd chance romances, or just romance in general.

[Blog Tour] ANN, NOT ANNIE by Sage Steadman @XpressoTours #UBReview


Ann, Not Annie
Sage Steadman

Publication date: September 20th 2017
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Ann, not Annie, is tired of her nominal existence and has vowed to turn things around by dating the hottest guy in school, Jacob Waters. Easier said than done since Jacob isn’t even aware she exists. The truth is, due to Ann’s lively temper she spends more time in detention with the rest of the school rejects than she does fantasizing about Jacob Waters wearing spandex.
Her best friend and devout alien believer, Lisa, doesn’t like the changes she’s seeing in her BFF. Neither does Danny Feller, a fellow detention inmate and resident lost boy who has started keeping an extra watchful and unwanted eye on Ann.
When a chance encounter in an empty hallway changes everything, Ann finds all her dreams coming true and she is well on her way to living the perfect life she’s always wanted. But appearances aren’t always what they seem and Ann is going to have to face not just cold hard facts, but also her past.
I really enjoyed reading this book. The narration was unique, and the characters were relatable. It was an easy read, and the story kept me wanting to read more. I'm sure some will be uncomfortable with the drug and alcohol use, but I see it as realistic, especially in this day and age. I thought this was a great story of a girl who has a tremendous loss all while dealing with hormones, high school, and finding herself.
