Don’t miss your chance to meet the swoony Gray Bowie in THE CARELESS BOYFRIEND! Grab your copy today!




Gray Bowie broke the bro code: he fell in love with his best friend’s girlfriend.


For years, he hid his feelings…until one terrible night, it all came to a head.


Since her life blew up in high school, Knox Holliday has spent her time honing her skills as a couture wedding dress designer. But, just weeks before her debut, a freak accident wipes out her collection. The culprit: her ex’s former best friend, Gray Bowie.


Gray does everything he can to get her career back on track. As they work together, they find forgiveness and start to stitch together something that looks a lot like love. But, at the very moment they realize they have a chance for something real, her ex comes back to town, bringing opportunities Gray can’t provide.


This time, Gray’s not going to step aside, so he can only hope Knox will hold onto his heart.


She’s his dream, but will he be hers?

EXCERPT


“Yeah. Yep.” His voice sounded gravelly.

When she opened the door, she saw a flash of white, as he flipped the covers back and swung his legs off the bed. He snatched his boxers off the floor, jamming his legs into them and yanking them up. Scrubbing his face, he stalked towards her. “You all right? What’s going on?”

“I believe you.”

“Sorry?” He looked so adorable, this big mountain of a man, wearing nothing but bright red boxers with a green grinch printed all over them. His broad, hairy chest, so toned, so fit, those bulging biceps, and rock-hard thighs—my God.

This man had loved her.

“I believe you.” This time she smiled because those were the three most powerful words she’d ever said.

“Still not getting it.”

“I’ve been working through it subconsciously. I started with total dismissal. No way did Gray Bowie have feelings for me. Then I moved to, okay, yeah, you don’t spend all that time with a pity project. You put on latex gloves and serve her a nice dinner once a year. You don’t lie on her bed, feet against the wall, and talk about her dreams of being a fashion designer.”

He watched her, like the glitter was settling and the image inside the snow globe was becoming delightfully clear.

“But then, the truth started to sink in. You had a busy life. Not just your competitions, but your brothers, your dad, and uncle. And then—bam—it rose right up out of my subconscious and smacked me across the face.” She came closer to him. “Gray, you chose me over time with your brothers. Well, over a lot of things. And I didn’t see it because of them. Of what bullies like Cady and Melissa trained me to believe. That I was trash. I thought flipping them the bird made me rise above it. I thought my little revenge plots made me invincible. But I didn’t see how my impressions about myself and the world came from them. Gray, the idea that you loved me? It just didn’t compute. A guy like you?”

His eyes softened, and he cracked a shy grin. Oh, Gray Bowie all vulnerable like that? That was hotter than anything she’d ever seen.

“I don’t know how it would’ve changed my life if I’d seen the truth,” she said. “But I can tell you it changes me now.”

He didn’t say anything, and awareness broke over her like a cracked egg. Don’t forget that he walked away, stayed away for seven years. He’d had no intention of ever seeing you again.

Oh, God. He was talking about a childhood crush, and she was standing here gushing at him. “I mean, I know you don’t love me anymore. Of course. Obviously. I’m just saying that you’ve given me a whole new perspective on my childhood, and it’s pretty damn amazing. We’re good, though. We can work together without you thinking that I’m, like…that I expect…you know, that I think you’re still in love with me.” She laughed, but it sounded as phony as it felt. “Anyhow. I just wanted to say I believe you. That’s a big moment for me, not you, so I obviously shouldn’t have woken you up to tell you. I could’ve kept that one to myself. So, anyhow. I’m a weirdo. Goodnight.” She gave him a smile she was pretty sure could only be found in a Fun House hall of mirrors and turned to go.

But his years of training served him well, because his arm shot out, wrapped around her waist, and jerked her against his hot, hard chest. “Never keep anything to yourself.” He leaned in until she could smell the toothpaste on his breath and the clean-linen scent on his skin. “I love every damn thing that comes out of your mouth.”

And then he pressed those beautiful lips to hers, and her heart exploded. Desire, sharp and fierce, burst in her core, the current so strong it flooded every fiber and tissue in her body. Immediately, she lost herself in the feel of his smooth, warm skin and the command of his tongue as it took possession of hers.

Gray’s kiss started with supreme confidence, making it feel like he was in charge, that she was along for the ride—a thrilling but controlled ride. One you knew couldn’t go off the rails.

And then it faltered. He let out a sign that sounded utterly desperate. The power of his touch gave way to a tremble in his arms, and his body heated up to blistering.

His control snapped, and he turned reckless, wild. She’d never been kissed like this—like he needed to gobble her up but couldn’t get all of her in at once. Like he needed to consume her, get his fill before she was snatched away. Everything about Gray—his scent, the way his strong hands roamed her back as though he couldn’t believe he got to touch her—the passion in his embrace—lit her up, flipped on all the lights—and she wanted it. She wanted this torrent of yearning and desire and need.

Until those strong hands slid down and cupped her ass and gave her a lusty squeeze. The press of his arousal against her stomach sent up warning flares—sex—and, God, sex with Gray Bowie?

Panic had her hands pushing him away. “I…” Her fingertips brushed across her sensitive lips.

Those blue eyes worked hard to read her, his chest pumping, arms still out so that if she took one step forward her bottom would fit snugly back in his hands.

And it struck her—like really hit her hard—how much she wanted that.

“I’m sorry. I…goodnight.”





Review
🌟⭐🌟⭐

The Careless Boyfriend is just as absorbing as the first two "Bad Boyfriend". This best friend's friend and friends to lovers story brings a completely different dimension to this genre.

Gray is an adrenaline junkie who flips from one extreme sport to another. 

Knox has been best friend to Gray from an early age. Whereas Gray comes from wealth, Knox comes from the opposite side. 

Robert is the other one who forms this trio of friendship as well as being Knox's boyfriend.

When things takes a turn for the worse on prom night, Gray who has been in love with Knox forever comes to his senses and cuts the cords. Robert goes for treatment and Knox leaves town to realise her dream of becoming a designer. A fluke accident which ruins Knox's first bridal show reunites Gray and Knox. Gray does his best to put things right and in the process finds that his feelings for Knox never changed. Together they do their best to get Knox's dream back on track and at the same time their friendship turns into more. Just when everything seems to be going the way they want, Robert makes an appearance. He makes an offer to get Knox's show back on track and although Gray is very patient and understanding, he finds that they are settling back into their old routine. He begins to feel like a third wheel again and Robert's behaviour doesn't help. Will the situation be resolved or will things go back to what they were?

I absolutely love Gray's honesty, his kindness and his unconditional love. Knox is determined and focused. Robert, well is Robert! Although there is a lot of angst and friction towards the end, the author turns everything around beautifully to give the desired HEA. Brodie is the only one of the Bowie brothers who hasn't been struck by Cupid's arrow and it will be interesting to see what's in store for him.

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

This is a well portrayed and easy to read story. It's funny, romantic with a little angst.

Cole, Duke of Colhaven enjoys a wager and hasn't lost one in ten years. His latest wager isn't at all what he expected.

Diana is the ward of Cole's best friend and has sworn to spinsterhood because she believes in her cause. She does her best not to draw attention to herself.

Cole takes on the wager of finding Diana a husband. After all, he is on a winning streak. What can go wrong? He doesn't expect a bright and determined woman who knows what she wants. Even though they are always butting head, there is a definite spark between them. Cole has his own ambition that he works hard for. The double life that Diana lives could hinder his political career, should they have a relationship. Will they give up their dreams or can they find a compromise where they can both have what they want?

This story has a nice flow and is pretty compelling. The main characters are lovable as are the supporting ones. A great start to this new series.

Cipher (#8 Demonica Underworld) Larissa Ione - Blog Tour



In the war between good and evil, sometimes the biggest battles take place inside the soul…and the heart.


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione, comes CIPHER, a passionate and spellbinding novella from the Demonica Underworld Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure you grab your copy today!




About CIPHER


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione comes a new story in her Demonica Underworld series…


It’s been seven months since Cipher, an Unfallen angel who straddled a razor thin line between good and evil, woke up in hell with a new set of wings, a wicked pair of fangs, and a handler who’s as beautiful as she is dangerous. As a laid-back cyber-specialist who once assisted guardian angels, he’d been in a prime position to earn back his halo. But now, as a True Fallen forced to use his talents for malevolence, he must fight not only his captors and his sexy handler, but the growing corruption inside him…before the friends searching for him become his enemies and he becomes his own worst nightmare.


Lyre is a fallen angel with a heart full of hate. When she’s assigned to ensure that Cipher carries out their boss’s orders, she sees an opportunity to take revenge on those who wronged her. All she has to do is appeal to Cipher’s burgeoning dark side. But the devastatingly handsome fellow True Fallen has other ideas — sexy ideas that threaten to derail all Lyre’s plans and put them in the path of an approaching hell storm.

Danger and desire explode, even as Cipher and Lyre unravel a sinister plot that will fracture the underworld and send shockwaves into Heaven itself…


**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do. **

5 ⭐🌟⭐🌟⭐


This is a marvellous addition to the Demonica Underworld series. It's very well portrayed and the characters are interesting and lovable. Mostly! 

Taking another exciting journey in the Underworld where some of my favourites characters feature, took me down memory lane. It's been a few years since I started reading this series and the storylines never cease to amaze me. 

There is a rebellion coming and when the extent of what's being planned is revealed, Cipher and Lyre find themselves caught in the middle. This story had me completely mesmerised and I can't get enough as this happens to be one of my favourite paranormal series.

Cipher and Lyre are great main characters. There is Hatred. Revenge. Cruelty and romance. The suspense sure kept me on the edge of my seat! Absolutely loved it.

Always 

Cross and Catherine were introduced in the bonus episode of the Filthy Marcellos complete set, and I have been curious every since. Their love story is extraordinary!

Cross is Calisto Donati's son. He has a no nonsense approach and speaks his mind. If anything, he is comfortable with what some some consider to be arrogance.

Catherine is Dante Marcello's daughter. She is a good girl for most of the time, but she has a tendency of being sneaky. Depending on the company.

Cross is nearly fifteen when he meets thirteen year old Catherine. What starts with an innocent relationship leads to so much more in their late teens. He doesn't change much, since he already knows what he wants in life. She doesn't quite know what she really wants. On the one hand, she wants to be good for daddy and on the other hand, she is fascinated by her mother's activities. This becomes the root of their problems but, he is always there to catch her when she falls. 

Something bad happens to her at the age of sixteen and instead of opening up, she finds other ways to cope. Destructive ways! 

They are so good together when they are "on", but even when they are "off" as a couple, she can always rely on him. He would do anything for her. She goes on a self destructing bender and as hard as it is, he finds himself with the only option which might just help her. She lives in a dark place and has to be willing to see the light. 

They are the perfect couple, yet not perfect individuals. Not that anyone is perfect, but there is a limit to everything. It's superbly portrayed and the poignancy of the emotions tore my heart apart. Quite the love story! I can't wait to see what transpires in Revere. 

Revere 

Revere is an amazing story about two adolescents who are now adults. It encompasses three generations of the same family and takes us down memory lane.

Cross is settled in his role with the mafia. He has grown up and his principles remain the same. There is one piece missing in his life. 

Catherine has learnt to stand on her own two feet, but some old habits die hard. Pleasing others isn't always that easy.

It's been seven years since Cross and Catherine saw each other. So much has changed, but some things stay the same. Inadvertently, they have to cross paths and the past doesn't appear to be so far away. There have been misunderstandings which could now be a barrier. When the lies and deceits come to the surface, they only cause more hurt and anger. True love never dies, though!

Seeing the three generations of the Marcellos and how they have evolved is quite something. Cal's past is not easy to forget under the current circumstances and Cross maturity shines. In his own arrogant way! Can't help but love him. There are some strong messages within this story. It's soulful with potent emotions. Cross and Catherine face some strong oppositions as well as dangerous situations. Good intentions can sometimes be more damaging. I have loved each and everyone of the stories in this series, but this one is something special. It hits all the right spots and this incredible love story will not be easy to forget. And.... there is more. The preview of the next instalment has piqued my interest and I look forward to see what transpires next.

Unruly 

Embarking on this journey with Cross and Catherine has been sheer delight. Watching them grow from children, to adolescents and then into adulthood is quite an experience. A phenomenal couple!

Cross is the the Donati boss and he hasn't changed much. He is still loyal, responsible, loving and beautifully arrogant.

Catherine is making good progress in her business, but still has a lot to learn.

Five years later and their love goes from strength to strength despite everything that's thrown at them. Juggling their time between their personal life and their business life is not easy. Whenever they think that they might have a reprieve something else crops up.

Cross is suddenly faced with a situation which puts the whole family in danger. He does the honourable thing and stands by his men. Respect! Things get out of hands, but he is no quitter. He will find a solution. 

Catherine is going over her own stumbling blocks. She finds herself having to address some difficult issues with no real back up. She is no quitter either! As hard as it might be, she will resolve these problems. 

With their additional personal responsibilities, they crave a work life balance. Things get harder before they get better, but they make the most of the time they have together. Will they be able to relax eventually and enjoy what they have? 

It's refreshing to see that Cross and Dante have come such a long way, after everything that's gone before. There are a lot of changes. Danger is aplenty. One thing doesn't change though. The depth of Cross and Catherine's love. Remarkable! Cece is a handful, but fun with it. I have enjoyed every single part of this trilogy, and sad in a way that it has come to an end. The epilogue is magnificent. This is a love story to remember. Fa-bu-lous darlings!

Naz +Roz 


An amazing finish to the Cross + Catherine series. It's a well rounded novella about finding "the one" and coming to terms with new feelings!

Naz, son of darling Cross Donati is a chip off the old block with very little to separate them. Naz is a born genius.

Ros is a pianist prodigy, daughter to Cross' best friend Zeke, and sister to Luca, Naz's best friend.

Although Naz and Ros have known each other from an early age, lightning doesn't strike until they are teenagers. It's instant love when they meet at a family event. They form an incredible bond whilst struggling with their new found feelings. They don't have much time to explore as Naz's work takes him all over the place and Ros is under pressure with her life long ambition of becoming a recognised pianist. Can they find a balance to meet their commitments and keep their beautiful relationship?

This short story is very well portrayed with a solid and intense plot. Despite their young age, Naz and Ros show common sense and are sensible about their decisions. Best of all is Naz's understanding and support. An adorable love story which ends beautifully.

Saying goodbye to Cross and Catherine is rather emotional, but hopefully there will be more of the Donatis' next generation with maybe a glimpse of Cross and Catherine thrown in!

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

The Military Wife (#1 A Heart of a Hero) Laura Trentham


Author 
Laura Trentham 

Publication Date 
5 February 2019 

Genre
Military Contemporary Romance 


An emotionally layered novel about family, loss and what it means to be a military wife. 

Harper Lee Wilcox has been marking time in her hometown of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina since her husband, Noah Wilcox’s death, nearly five years earlier. With her son Ben turning five and living at home with her mother, Harper fights a growing restlessness, worried that moving on means leaving the memory of her husband behind.

Her best friend, Allison Teague, is dealing with struggles of her own. Her husband, a former SEAL that served with Noah, was injured while deployed and has come home physically healed but fighting PTSD. With three children under foot and unable to help her husband, Allison is at her wit’s end.

In an effort to reenergize her own life, Harper sees an opportunity to help not only Allison but a network of other military wives eager to support her idea of starting a string of coffee houses close to military bases around the country.

In her pursuit of her dream, Harper crosses paths with Bennett Caldwell, Noah’s best friend and SEAL brother. A man who has a promise to keep, entangling their lives in ways neither of them can foresee. As her business grows so does an unexpected relationship with Bennett. Can Harper let go of her grief and build a future with Bennett even as the man they both loved haunts their pasts?
 







4 Stars
⭐🌟⭐🌟

This is one of the most realistic books which I have read about men serving their countries, coming home and struggling with civilian life whilst trying to cope with PTSD.

Harper is a single mother to five year old Ben, after losing her husband Noah to deployment. She lives with her mother and concentrates on giving her son a happy childhood. 

Bennett didn't have a happy upbringing and his time with the SEAL has left him with a lot of physical and emotional scars. He is a loner. 

Bennett made a promise to his best friend Noah, before he died and as far as he is concerned he has fulfilled his promise, but Harper wants answers. Answers that will give her closure. She approaches Bennett who has the answers. He is not forward in delving into the past. What she doesn't expect is the mutual attraction that develops between them.

Harper isn't totally happy with her life which has turned into a tedious routine. Her best friend Alison who herself is trying to cope with a husband, his PTSD and three children encourages her to get more involved with the military wives. They see an opportunity to involve the army wives whilst helping the Wounded Warriors. Bennett gets involved with the business as he himself, runs a business involving ex servicemem. The more time they spend together, the more they become attracted to each other. Can Bennett and Harper get involved in view of their relationships with Noah? 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Bennett and Harper complement each other very well. Alison and all the other military wives add more realism to the story. It highlights the bond amongst the ex SEAL and how they support each other. It's a beautiful story about grief, love and loyalty. I would recommend this book to readers of all genres.

I was born and raised in a small town in Northwest Tennessee. Although, I loved English and reading in high school, I was convinced an English degree equated to starvation! So, I chose the next most logical major - Chemical Engineering- and worked in a hard hat and steel toed boots for several years. Now I live in South Carolina with my husband and two children. In between school and homework and soccer practices, I love to get lost in another world, whether it's Regency England or small town Alabama.

My first two Falcon Football books received TOP PICKS from RT Book Reviews and a STARRED review from Library Journal. KISS ME THAT WAY, Cottonbloom Book 1, won the Stiletto Contest and was a finalist for the National Readers Choice Award. THEN HE KISSED ME, Cottonbloom Book 2, was named an Amazon Best Romance of 2016 and was a finalist of the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award. TILL I KISSED YOU Book 3, is a finalist for the Maggie Award. And, LEAVE THE NIGHT ON Book 4, was named an iBooks Best Book of August and was featured on NPR! ​WHEN THE STARS COME OUT was named a Best Romance of February by Amazon!

It's February in South Carolina! Days are either super cold or so warm it make you think about spring. Yesterday I walked the dog in shorts and worked up a sweat. Lots of writing related stuff going on here... In just a few days (February 5th, to be exact) my first Women's Fiction book releases! THE MILITARY WIFE got a STARRED review from Publisher's Weekly!! That was a bucket list item for sure. Early reveiws have been *amazing* and a big thanks to everyone who has read and loved it. A tiny review excerpt...


"Trentham expertly addresses PTSD, survivor’s guilt, and falling in love after a tremendous loss with an empathy that rings true. It’s impossible to finish this remarkable book without shedding tears." Publisher's Weekly Starred Review

In addition, I have finished edits on A HIGHLANDER WALKS INTO A BAR, Book 1 in the Highland, Georgia series. It's a little different from anything I've written. Even though it is a small town romance like Cottonbloom, it veers more lighthearted and comedic. Look for it July 30th.


I've also finished the second Heart of a Hero book, Title TDB. It's not related to The Military Wife except that it is an emotional book about the sacrifices our military and families go through. It will will release Winter/Spring 2020.

Still in the works is the next Regency in the Spies and Lovers series, A SINFUL SURRENDER! Basically, I need a writing clone...


 I'll have lots of covers to share with my reader group first! Come JOIN.

I would love to hear from you...  Happy Reading!!
