RELEASE BLITZ and MY REVIEW of I’m Yours by Jennifer Van Wyk.

Title: I’m Yours
Author: Jennifer Van Wyk
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Single Dad Romance

I left Lakeside, Montana heartbroken and lost with no desire to ever return.
But life had other plans.
Moving back wasn’t what I wanted to do, but I’d do anything for my daughter Emmy. Including put myself right in the path of Sadie Jones.
My daughter’s new dance teacher.
The reason my heart was never fully opened to anyone else was because it’s always belonged to her.

When I watched Reed Sanders drive away from Lakeside, I knew my heart would never recover.
He was meant for more than what this town could offer him.
Than what I could offer him.
I tried to warn him to stay away from me but he refused to listen.
If only he would have, maybe then I wouldn’t feel so broken.

The heart is mysterious. It can be closed off and open at the same time.
Unfortunately, sometimes it takes danger lurking around the corner to make it choose a side.
All I can hope is that one day I can finally hear the words… I’m Yours.

I pull on the door and step inside, looking around. I hear sultry music from the back and hear someone call out, “I’ll be out in a second!”

I look around, pictures of dancers grace the walls. It didn’t look like much from the outside, but inside tells a different story. There are four rooms plus what looks like an office, each of the dance rooms have a large glass wall and a quick look inside shows a mirror on the opposite wall. There’s a sign that says “No shoes allowed past this point” and I furrow my brow, wondering what that means. There’s a built-in shelf that looks like it’s to store shoes and maybe even hang backpacks and coats. It’s impressive, really.

This same studio was here when I was growing up, but it looks updated, modern, and when I look to the side at another sign that reads “All dancers welcome here” I know that it’s exactly where I want Emmy to be.

“Keep going, ladies. You’re looking great.”

That voice. I know that voice.

It arrests me, my feet glued to the floor.

And then I see her.

She’s standing probably ten feet away from me and she gasps. I open my mouth to say something but I don’t even know what to say. Sadie. Our eyes connect and she takes a step forward then another. I do the same but then neither of us come any closer.

“Holy shit,” Sadie breathes, stopping in her tracks. My sentiments exactly. I had no idea she still lived in Lakeside, though I made it very clear to my parents that I didn’t want to know details on Sadie’s life.

We stare at each other, eyes blinking slowly. “What…” the rest of my question sticks in my throat. I’m not even sure what I was going to ask her. What is she doing here? What’s she been up to the last dozen years? Why couldn’t she love me back all those years ago?

“Reed.” My name sounds like heaven coming from her lips. I close my eyes, letting it wash over me. It’s been so long since I’ve heard her voice or seen her in the flesh, not just in my dreams.

“Sadie.” My voice is thick and scratchy. She bites her lip and looks over her shoulder when the music in the back changes, someone calling her name and asking if Sadie wants her to continue.

“Can you take over for a bit, Kandace?”

“You got it!”

When her eyes return to mine, we continue our stare down, neither of us making a move.

“My daughter. She’s looking for dance classes.” It’s the first thing that comes to mind to say. But what am I supposed to do here? Shoot the shit with her? Make small talk? She made it clear twelve years ago that she no longer cared about me, so it’s best to keep things cordial now. If she came out to help a visitor, that must mean she works here, right? It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this way; like my mind is stuck.

Her eyes widen at my mention of Emmy but they don’t seem surprised. Of course they aren’t. I’m sure she’s heard all about Emmy from my mom. Possibly even the fact that Katherine died, too. I assumed that when mom was keeping in touch with Sadie, it meant that they were doing so over social media or the occasional phone call. Now I wonder if they’re hanging out together, spending time with one another.

“I heard… about your wife. I’m sorry.” So, she did know.

I nod, shoving my hands in my pockets. I never understood why people said they were sorry. It wasn’t her who forced Katherine to stare at her phone screen rather than focus on the road ahead of her. I suppose it’s one of those sayings that started years ago and it just never changed over time.

“Thanks.”

She looks away and then back again, her eyes still so pretty. “Has Emerson danced before?”

My entire body flinches at her use of my daughter’s name. She knows about me. Possibly knew I was moving home and I didn’t even know she was still here. I take a minute to really look at her and that’s when I realize what she’s wearing.

Fish neck stockings, heels that look like they could be used as a weapon, they’re so tall, a pair of shiny bright green underwear and a black bra thing that looks incredibly complicated with all the straps.

“What the hell are you wearing?” I ask, probably rudely but she just smiles, giggling a little and it’s like a vice is gripping my heart. I haven’t heard her voice, her laugh, in so long. I missed it. I missed her. The way her eyes sparkle in amusement and her lips lift in a smile. Damn, she’s even more beautiful than I remember. When I last saw her, she was still growing into herself. Now, though, I see everything, thanks to her attire. Firm stomach, full breasts, strong arms and legs. The only thing that’s the same about Sadie Jones is her hair. Still pin straight and blonde.

She throws a thumb over her shoulder. “I teach pole dancing in the back.”

“My daughter isn’t pole dancing!” I’m sure I look horrified but I figured this was a regular dance studio for little kids.

“That’s good because she’s not old enough for that. Maybe we could start her out with some beginner ballet?” A teasing smile stretches across her face and I can’t stop my eyes from drifting down, focusing on her full lips.

I’m standing here in front of Sadie for the first time in twelve years as she takes a break from teaching a pole dancing class. We’re discussing starting my daughter out with some beginner ballet classes while she’s at her first day of Kindergarten. How is this my life? I’m barely holding it together, feeling like I’m about to come out of my own skin. It’s too much for me to deal with. She’s too pretty and sexy and my daughter just started school and… shit. I need a drink. And I rarely drink.

“Okay,” I find myself saying.

She moves with ease on heels that should roll her ankle and brushes past me, her scent lingering in the air between us. A mixture of something sweet that reminds me of when my mom would bake pumpkin bars in the fall and something else that brings back memories better left buried.

She hands me a piece of paper and pen. “Fill this out and here’s a list of our classes and the times so you can take a look at what works for your schedule. How old is she? Five?”

“Yes,” I tell her, wondering how she’s so calm. Meanwhile, I’m about to come unglued and out of my skin.

 

This book has all my favorite tropes; small town romance, second chance and single dad.

Sadie and Reed saw each other for the first time when they were 14 years and Reed fell in love with Sadie.

But Sadie wanted to only stay friends because of her low self esteem and thinking that she is not good enough for Reed.

The night before Reed goes to college, he confesses his love and they spend the night together. But Sadie broke his heart and he left for college.

12 years later Reed returns as a widow and a little sweet and spunky 5 years old daughter and couldn’t even imagine that his first love was still living there.

Love the storyline. It’s a sweet second chance romance.

Love that Sadie got stronger throughout the years.

Reed is one of the sweetest dads that I’ve read. He tried his best to be a good dad for Emmy.

And Emmy..what a sweet little girl. Love her.

This story is A beautiful story about second chance at love. About healing after a devastating loss.

My Rating: 4,5 STARS!!

RELEASE BLITZ and MY REVIEW of Tracking Tahlula by Freya Barker.

 


Title: Tracking Tahlula (On Call #3) 
Author: Freya Barker 
Genre: Romantic Suspense 
Release Date: November 12, 2019 

As author Tahlula Rae has discovered; success is a double-edged sword. Leading a quiet and anonymous life, she isn’t prepared for the hateful backlash when her latest book hit the lists, propelling her into the limelight. No longer feeling safe in Denver, she takes her laptop and dog, Luke, and moves to the mountains around Durango, where her peaceful solitude is disrupted when a red-bearded man knocks on her door. 
While one of the fire department’s finest, Evan Biel, is relatively content with his life, he can’t escape the sense something’s missing. When on fire-safety housecalls, he finds himself staring into a pair of soulful, copper-colored eyes sparking a deep interest.  Discovering the exotic-looking woman may be in more trouble than he can handle, he tries—yet fails—to keep his distance.
When Tahlula offers San Antonio firefighters, Moose and Penelope Jacobs, temporary lodging, as they help fight seasonal wildfires, Evan’s relieved she’s no longer alone on the mountain. Yet when her troubles become outright threats on her life, his focus has to be keeping Tahlula safe.

Like I usually say after reading a new Freya Barker book; this one is my new favorite. This book is what I wanted to read in a while. Different and something I wanted to read about.

It’s so good. I couldn’t put it down.

The chemistry between Tahlula Rae and Evan Biel is hot since the first chapter.

Love how strong and independent Tahlula is and every woman needs a Evan in their lives.

The plot is amazing. Loved it. And so awesomely written. Had me hooked since the first chapter. Freya Barker writes characters that I can relate to. And with a bonus of delicious protective alpha males and with a suspense that I love in my books.

Awesome to see characters of Susan Stoker and familiar characters of Freya Barker that I love so much.

And that last sentence at the end? The hint about the next characters? Hell to the freaking yes!!!!

My Review: 5 STARS!!

Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about ‘real’ people; with characters who are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills, and their own slice of happy.
A recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None”, and Finalist for the Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, Freya has not slowed down.
She continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!

Excerpt
Prologue
Alissa
When your whole
world implodes and in the matter of hours and your happily ever after turns to
dust, life sucks.
I’m left holding
the baby. Literally.
The baby being my
eleven-month old daughter, Nora, who knows nothing of her father’s failure to
be a decent husband… man… well human-being really. He’s a shitty person and
that’s all there is to it. Our story started out like your typical fairy-tale.
Goosebumps still prickle my skin when I remember the way he chased me
throughout Senior school, and the years of romance that followed. And the
proposal and wedding? Just call me Cinde-fucking-rella. But my perfect life
came crashing down as quickly as that pink line appeared on the pregnancy test.
Apparently a tired, puffy and hormonal wife didn’t exactly make my husband’s
dick stand to attention. So, in a move I can only imagine was driven by his
little head (and I do mean little,) he decided my ex-best friend was a better
option.
That’s right I said
ex because before she did the dirty with my husband she was the best friend. I
told her everything, confided in her and cried on her shoulder about my
non-existent sex life and all the while her own sex life was heating up with my
husband. Weekends away on ‘business trips’ and doing all the things a wife
should be doing with her husband. Except she was his slutty side piece with a
big fat mouth and a huge spent pussy the whole football team had ridden so
often they called her the local bike.
Yeah, I’m bitter
and I don’t care. I’ve been wronged by the two people I trusted the most. Now
I’m a single mother with no social life to speak of, and my only conversation
is in baby gobbledegook. I actually look forward to the delivery woman ringing
the doorbell when I order groceries online. Yeah, I have them delivered. Have
you ever tried juggling a crying baby and a shopping cart while concentrating
on what comfort food you plan to stuff your face with that night while crying
over chick flicks? Yeah, I’m miserable, it’s obvious, right?
Author Bio
I’m a born and bred East Yorkshire lass. Where I still live
with my husband and our children.
A self-confessed night owl, that’s usually when I do my best work, lucky for me
home-schooling my daughter gives me plenty of time to catch up on those
late-night hours writing, although my irrational love of full sugar coke can
help with that too—don’t tell the sugar police.

I wrote my first book when my daughter was born back in 2004, but it stayed on
my laptop for years while I worked out what to do with it. Things were sure
different back then, and to be able to publish a manuscript you’d poured your
soul into seemed a far-off dream, one that I didn’t know would ever come true.

While my first book baby festered on my hard drive, I went on to study a
Creative Writing and English degree, while also growing our family with not
only children but more puppies and dog’s than a sane woman should have.

With a degree under my belt, those original characters, tucked safely far away
from sight, still called to me like old friends. Using my new skills and
knowledge I decided to give them the attention they deserved. Forbidden Love is
the result of those long years of maturing and I couldn’t be prouder of how my
first novel turned out.

What began as one story, fifteen years ago, grew to become a series and in 2016
I took the plunge and dove into the indie publishing world releasing Forbidden
Love to feedback that blew my mind.
And here I still am, loving every minute, bringing characters that hold a place
in my heart to life.
All I can do now, is hope you are here to join me for the ride.

RELEASE BLITZ! Biker Babe by Audrey Carlan

Title: Biker Babe
Series: Biker Beauties #1
Author: Audrey Carlan
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: November 11, 2019
Blurb

From Audrey Carlan, the #1 New York Times bestselling
author of the Calendar Girl series.
Princess. That’s what the club calls me. I’m not frilly,
into pink, or expect a man to woo me with chocolates and flowers. I don’t need
candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach.
I’m not the girl you take home to your parents. I like wild,
fun, and good times. I’m the kind of girl you put on the back of your bike and
ride through the night…in more ways than one.
I like the wind in my hair and the open road before me. I
was born a biker princess and I’ll be one until the day I die. The man in my
life can try to tame me, but he’ll have one hell of a fight on his hands.
Though if he wins, he’ll get the ultimate prize…all of me. Devoted. His old
lady through thick and thin.
So when I opened my store, aptly named Biker Babe, I didn’t
expect to have the biggest, sexiest, most jaw-dropping man walk into my shop
and set my world on fire. I wanted him instantly. Only problem, my father is
the president of the Hero’s Pride MC, and Taggart “Rex” Crawford is his new
Vice President.
Our Pride likes to live wild and ride free but everyone
knows the President’s daughter is off limits.
The Biker Beauties are a collection of interconnected
standalone novellas. They can be read out of order if desired. They are high in
heat, but don’t forget the sweet.
