Everything I Never Wanted by K. Street ~ Release & Review




Title: Everything I Never Wanted
Author: K. Street
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 22, 2018



Blurb

A single dad, contemporary romance standalone.

This wasn’t supposed to be my life.

One phone call was all it took to bring me back to the small town I had grown up in. Everything had changed, and staying away was no longer an option.

Four and a half years later, I was a widowed single father still here, still trying to pick up the pieces. We were doing just fine on our own, my little girl and me.

At least, we were until Camryn Parker stumbled into our lives. The woman was like a tornado after a hurricane; she was the storm I never saw approaching. Behind her beauty and sarcastic wit, she was just as broken as I pretended not to be. As hard as I tried to resist, it was impossible not to fall in love with her.

In the end, it took nearly losing it all for me to realize everything I never wanted was exactly what I needed.

Review

Love, loss, fear...those are just a few of the emotions Everything I Never Wanted deals with.
I sat down to read this book and could not stop, I literally read it in one day and was left wishing there were a few more chapters.
I easily fell in love with Shayne, she was too adorable not to. 
Camryn was pretty amazing herself, someone who has some issues and isn't perfect but is willing to fight for those she cares about, she was perfect.
And Tucker. 
A single dad who is a gentleman, great son and with shoulders strong enough to take on others burdens and help them carry them? Yes please!!
This book tugs at your heart, is a bit emotional and a ton amazing. 
This is my first book by the author and I'm floored, I'm sorry I didn't know about her until now but I'll remedy that by hitting her backlist.
Loved this book from beginning to end, the secondary characters were memorable too, I'd love to read about a few of them.

Family Ties by Stephie Walls




Title: Family Ties
Author: Stephie Walls
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 21, 2018



Blurb

With a history like ours, the meaning of the word family tended to tangle into something unrecognizable. DNA and bloodlines didn’t tie us together, and neither did our last names. Various shades of grey blurred the branches of our twisted family tree.

I wasn’t her brother.
They weren’t my parents.
Not that it mattered…

She was off limits.

Portia was my friend.
Then my foster sister.
And she’d always be the love of my life.

Liz
A bond. A connection. Our difference in color didn’t matter; we were made for each other. A love so strong nothing could come between us—until someone did. Faced with an ultimatum, I made the only decision I could but it was never about skin color, for me. Saying good-bye to him left me in pieces, never to be the same without him.
Now, many years later, I am face to face with the man no one could ever compare to. The feelings I’ve pushed aside for him threaten to boil over. I must fight them. I can’t go back. I need to protect my family, myself.

Israel
Here I am, face to face with the one that got away, the one that abandoned me, the one no other woman could measure up to. I still need to know why she left. Did she leave me for her family money? Was it my skin color? She left by choice, leaving me broken. I’ve never been the same without her.
But now that she’s in front of me, I can’t let her get away again. My slightest touch leaves her covered in goose bumps. Liz is using everything she has not to give in. I hope she will. I need her to be mine, to once again be my Buttercup.

Excerpt

We got a little buzzed and when the lounge singer sang, “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” that was it for me. When I took her into my arms and danced with her, I knew it was more than lust. I was totally fucking in love with the feisty, green-eyed, chestnut-haired beauty from Idaho.
“Blake—” My tiger’s voice cuts into my memories.
“Yeah, baby?” I take out my earbuds.
“Do you want to take a walk?”
My gaze shifts in her direction. She looks ravishing. Her toned limbs luminescent in the moonlight, her dress gently blowing in the ocean breeze along with her up swept hair. I stare at her exquisite face, aglow in the campfire, her green eyes glittering like two stars that have fallen from the sky.
The first time ever I saw her face . . . Yes, I thought the sun rose in her eyes. And even before that I felt the earth move in my hand, the first time I ever kissed her mouth.
The song plays in my head. A sensation that I can’t put into words falls over me. It’s like a fire that’s burning from the inside out, consuming every atom of my being. A love so deep it hurts. I respond to her question.
“Baby, go get your iPod.”
Without questioning me, she pivots and heads toward her backpack. While she’s riffling for the device, I put out my cigar in the sand and search my library of songs. It doesn’t take me long to find it.
She returns to me quickly and sits down facing me.
“You want to just hang out and listen to music?”
“Give me your iPod.”
Again, without questions, she hands it over. I quickly program it. I wrap the band around her upper arm and then fasten mine around my bicep. I help her to her feet and draw her close to me.
“Dance with me, tiger,” I breathe against her neck, before putting the buds into our ears.
With love in her eyes, she gazes up at me. A faint smile, that’s more wistful than lustful, fixes on her kissable lips, as our song plays in her ears.
No more words.
I wrap my arms around her, clutching her gorgeous ass, while she loops hers around my neck and rests her head on my chest. Our bodies glued together. Heat to heat. Organ to organ. Heartbeat to heartbeat.
Every sound and worry in the world blocked out, we slow dance to the song that changed our lives forever. The song we played at our third and final wedding. The one that sealed our love forever. Taking one small step at a time as we sway, our feet sink into the soft, warm sand.
Under the moon.
Under the stars.
The heavens.
Oneness.
Us.
If there’s such a thing as Paradise, this is it.

Cover Reveal - Young Love by Alyson Santos




Title: Young Love
Author: Alyson Santos
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Bruiser Designs
Release Date: July 25, 2018



Blurb


Sometimes you need to let yourself fall…

Recently divorced Sienna Porter has the life she’s supposed to. A house, career, even a hot young contractor working upstairs to distract her. At thirty-eight, she’s entitled to a little fun (according to her best friend, anyway).

Pain, though— it’s so clever in the way it infects hope and poisons happiness.

Jace Beckett should be flying high. Talented, driven, and disciplined, he’s far beyond his twenty-three years. He’s used to the game, the attention his looks and highly-trained body get from women. Doesn’t mean he likes to play.

Doesn’t mean his own secrets aren’t intent on tearing him down.

It’s just a fling. Sexy. Temporary. It’s not supposed to last. It’s not supposed to transform into love. It’s certainly not supposed to become the air you breathe and everything worth fighting for.







Author Bio


I’m a writer, musician, and cat lover. I also have an alternative music obsession. Seriously, it’s a real problem.

I write what needs to come out, whether it’s pain, tears, or laughter. I write people and relationships, about the beauty and horror of what we do to ourselves and each other. I write Love. Vengeance. Compassion. Cruelty. Trust. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Darkness, and the incredible way humans destroy and heal each other.

I like to eradicate barriers, refusing to be confined by the laws of physics or limitations of reality. I will befriend a vast population of possibilities and introduce them in ways that might surprise you.

Conviction by Jane Henry











Brax can’t get the girl on the dance floor out of his mind, the woman he literally swept off her feet and into Club Verge. She’s no submissive, but he can’t help but admire her ferocity, even as he yearns to take her over his lap and teach her manners. He’s determined to keep her safe if he has to lock her up himself.


Officer Zoe Mackay can handle herself. But when she learns information that puts her life at risk, she’s forced to seek the assistance of a private investigator. Little does she know the man she hires is none other than Braxton Cannon, the high-handed dominant who gave her the hottest one-night stand of her life.

With her assailants in hot pursuit, Zoe is forced to seek refuge in Club Verge, where she finds way more than she’s bargained for...
There comes a point in any combat scenario where you know you’re losing. You know your only chance of overcoming your opponent is gone. In a staged scenario, like the training sessions at the academy, you might get hit a few times but admitting defeat will usually end the session, unless you’re at the mercy of an asshole who has a bone to pick with you. In a real life situation, you know you’re going down. It’s rare that someone will actually take a fight to the death. Even the most hardened criminals often have trouble pulling the trigger, finishing the job. Most of the time it just means you’re getting a beating.
Fuck it.
I have no idea what Brax will do. All I know is he restrained me once and that didn’t end up so well for him, so the likelihood of him upping his game is pretty damn strong. He’s gonna win this one. There’s no denying that, But I’m not going down without a fight.
I struggle and try to push away, but I find that he’s taking a weird position. He’s like kneeling or something instead of trying to pin me down again. He lifts me straight up in the air like I’m a rag doll, and hauls me straight across his knees. It takes me a second to register the position I’m in before his palm smacks against my ass. I don’t even react at first, I’m so shocked at what he’s doing.
I’ve been wrestled and beaten and subdued. But hell. No one’s ever… spanked me before.
“What the fuck!” I protest, as a second vicious smack of his palm on my ass pushes the breath right out of me. “What the hell are you doing?
He doesn’t say anything. He just sorta shifts his position so that now my head is lower on the floor and my ass is higher up in the air, giving him what I’d imagine is a very clear target.
“Brax!”
In silence, he pins me down and gives me two, three, four wicked spanks.
This feels weird. I’m not sure what to do. It hurts, I can’t deny it, and I would have expected I’d feel like a kid or something, being spanked like this. He spanks me again, and again, and I can’t even fight him now. I’ve tried that and it got me nowhere. I’ve got to try another tactic.
“I’m sorry!” I manage to squeak out in between whacks of his brutal palm. “Ok, I’m sorry!”
He pauses and rests his hand on my scorched ass. He’s heaving with the effort of restraining and spanking me, and for a moment the only sound in the kitchen is both of us panting.
“Seriously. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that,” I say. Weirdly, the desire to beat the shit out of him is now gone, and I have to admit I’m actually feeling pretty subdued. What the hell happened there? “Please let me up and we can talk.”
To my surprise, I feel his hand fisting at the nape of my neck, my hair all tangled up in his fingers. He pulls my head back and his mouth is at my ear. Warm breath tickles my skin, but it’s what he says that makes me tingle. “You ever fucking pull something like that again, you’ll lose your pants and I’ll spank your bare ass. You understand me?”
