Tempt by Melanie Harlow - ARC Review & Blog Tour



Nothing so wrong should ever feel so right.




You’ve heard the story about the wedding planner who falls for the groom?
Well, this is the one where she falls for his father.
And that groom? He’s my ex.

I didn’t realize who the gruff, gorgeous older man was the night he rescued me from a creep in a Manhattan hotel bar. All I knew was that a hot, bearded stranger with a protective streak showed up right when I needed a reminder that real gentlemen still exist.

(Although he left his manners behind after asking me up to his room.)

It was the hottest night of my life, but I never thought I’d see the former Navy SEAL again.

Imagine my surprise at the rehearsal dinner one week later, when my sexy one-night stand is introduced as the father of the groom. Even more surprising? That temptation we felt in New York was no fluke.

In public, we pretend there’s nothing between us.

In private, we can’t keep our hands off each other.

The situation is beyond complicated. Zach never even knew he’d fathered a child until recently, and he wants to earn his son’s trust and respect. As for me, I’m looking for a man who wants to start a family, and Zach has made it clear he’s not that man. He’s fifteen years older, newly divorced, and he lives across the country.

But no matter how many times we draw the line, we keep crossing it.

Nothing so wrong should ever feel so right.

Past and present weave together in Donovan’s point of view for the next chapter in Donovan and Sabrina’s life.

She was supposed to save me.

She’s still here, so I must be doing something right. But now I want more.

Except, a dangerous secret from my past threatens to come between us, forcing me to confront what kind of man I am.

And whether I’m the one who can save our future.

Or whether fate has other plans for us.

This book follows the Dirty Duet. It’s not necessary to read all the books in the Dirty Universe before reading this, but it is recommended for a better reading experience.



Fernhill Lane by Kristen Proby - ARC Review & Blog Tour

 

From Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a small town, second chance romance! 

Fernhill Lane is the newest installment in the Huckleberry Bay series!


She didn't think she'd ever come home again.

When Sarah Bitterman left Huckleberry Bay at the tender age of nineteen, newly married to a much older man, she had every intention of coming home to visit. Sadly, she quickly learned that was out of the question.

Until her husband throws her out with only the clothes on her back and finally sets Sarah free.

Coming back to the small seaside town has been the hardest thing she's ever done. Facing those who loved her the most and think she turned her back on them is almost unbearable. But she needs her two best friends, and she's longed to make amends with her little brother.

Huckleberry Bay is like the art in her soul. And now she can put down roots and begin to heal.

Tanner Hilleman knew it was a mistake to let the love of his life go all those years ago, and he's never stopped thinking about her. Now that she's home, while he's giving her the space she needs, he's also determined to make Sarah see that they belong together.

Unfortunately, Sarah's past has followed her to Huckleberry Bay and threatens to destroy everything she loves. Will she and Tanner survive it? Or will it tear them apart for good?

Stay Forever by Kaylee Ryan - ARC Review



Declan


My whole world has revolved around caring for my baby girl. I never wanted to let anyone into my life—into our life until Kennedy came to town and threw a wrench into my single-dad routine.

She’s the first woman to make me feel something… anything, in a long time. If only she would let me in.

Kennedy is kind, beautiful, and everything I never knew that I wanted. She looks at me as if I'm her entire world, and her bond with my daughter is something to see. But there’s a problem: she's leaving in a few weeks, and I need to find a way to ask her to stay.



Kennedy

My trip to Willow River came at the perfect time to escape. Taking care of my grandmother should be my whole focus. What I shouldn’t be doing is falling for a drop-dead-gorgeous single dad. But my meddling grandmother has other ideas.

Declan is impossible to resist. Everything with him is easy and feels right. We feel right. But the timing is all wrong— no matter how I wish I could change things.

He’s a forever kind of guy, but this isn’t my home, and he doesn’t know what he’s asking when two words change everything… “stay forever.”

The Saint by Nana Malone - ARC Review & Release Blitz

 

The Saint by Nana Malone is now live!

Kaya Reynolds is a distraction, a rage-inducing pain in my ass, and an absolute magnet for trouble.

But when you're a Rogues agent, you don't get to pick your assignments. Unfortunately, you don't get to decline them either.

And that's how I ended up fake engaged to the most infuriating women I've ever met.

The Rogues Division is a top-secret, highly-classified, "I'd tell you but I'd have to kill you" kind of organization. The kind of organization the government pretends not to love having at its disposal.

Kaya Reynolds is our latest asset. If I want to bring down the man who killed my fiancé, I've got to keep her safe.

Thing is, the last time I saw her, she kissed the hell out of me....because she was being chased by his goons and she needed a distraction.

But something sparked between us—something I have no business thinking about day and night. Especially when we're only pretending to like each other.

Aren't we?

Yes we are!

This marriage is just for show. I refuse to be tempted by my curvy assignment's soft satin lips, dark mischievous eyes, or the way she looks at me. Even when we're not playing our roles....

But nope, NOPE! I lost someone I loved once. And I'm not letting anybody else into my heart.

I'm not going there with the woman I'm only pretending to love. It's all about staying in control.

And I won't let her tempt me into losing mine.



I wasn't sure what to expect on my way into this one, and I wasn't disappointed.

Kaya and Saint were a lot of fun, they had great chemistry, and the story was enjoyable. I was engaged overall, but there were parts of this that did feel like they dragged a little bit, but not enough to fully pull me out of the story.

I enjoy the fake engagement trope, I like the idea of getting what you want accidentally and then figuring out it's actually something you really want. I think I like the idea of being surprised by life.

I also really enjoyed that the heroine is strong and really able to take care of herself even though she does end up getting some assistance from Saint. The idea that the woman in a story like this is not the damsel in distress is something that is less common in romantic suspense than it was in years past, but it's still not totally the norm and I loved Kaya in this story.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.

Meet Nana

Wall Street Journal and USA Today Best Seller, Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion, and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
