Blurb:

From USA Today bestselling author Terri E. Laine comes an all new STANDALONE second chance romance…

One night … one kiss … one touch … will change everything.

Chance Abbot is cocky.

Sexy.

Gorgeous.

A player in every sense of the word.

He broke my heart once, and I swore he’d never get a second chance.

But when he smiles at me, flashing those irresistible dimples or looks at me like I’m the best thing he’s ever seen, I forget I shouldn’t fall for his charms again.

Brie Holloway is beautiful.

Innocent.

Unforgettable.

She’s everything I’ve ever wanted and everything I don’t deserve.

But that won’t keep me from trying to win her back.

So when she starts dating her TA, I promise to keep her secret on one condition: for every time she goes out with him, she has to go out with me. I’m prepared to prove I’m right for her, one date at a time.

He’s lighting a fire in my heart and breaking down my walls, and proving he’s worthy of a second chance.

She’s everything that’s good in my world, and if she wants me to chase her I will because she’s got me catching fireflies…

REVIEW:

Best second chance romance of the year. Thank you Terri for giving me all the feels. I was fascinated with this story just from reading the synopsis. Chance and Brie’s story was pure magic. Chance Abbott was young man who didn’t let many people know the real him. If he showed you his true self, you were lucky! He had so many heartbreaking moments in his life and was always shielding his heart. Did he find the girl he was ready that he was wanted to take a chance on? Yes, pun was intended 😉 Brie Holloway is a confident woman who struggles with trying to please her family. Whether her family means to or not, they put pressure on her to find the right man, the right job, and the right life. Even with all this pressure, you can’t help but admire her for trying to make decisions that are best for her. One night, Brie and Chance meet. Their instant attraction is ELECTRIC. They have a special bond and things are headed in the right direction. Chance starts to realize that he can’t just jump into a relationship if he is not mentally ready. Chance breaks up with Brie in not so many words. He knows that he might regret it, but he has to find himself on his own. A couple of years later, they see each other more often because of some circumstances and the connection is still there. Both are at different points in their life, but Chance begs for a second chance. He chases her like a firefly. Fireflies are so significant to both of their lives and to this story. In some species, female fireflies are flightless and I think Brie can relate. Chance knows he needs to be in her life to help her fly and be the person she is destined to become, but will his consistent charm do work? Catching Fireflies was dynamic, momentous, electrifying, innocent, and OUTSTANDING. So impressed and amazed by Terri’s writing style. Catching Fireflies deserves 10 stars. This is a must read!!

BRAEInThisLife-eBookGRAY.jpgSecrets ruin lives, and lies protect those secrets…

Wanting to escape her life in New York City before starting medical school in the fall, Anna Dillon convinces her best friend Dante to travel with her to Thailand on a medical mission. While volunteering in a coastal village recently ravaged by a tsunami, Anna meets Jude Grayson. They share an instant attraction that leads to a brief, passionate affair. When she has to rush home for a family emergency, he promises to stay in touch.

But Jude never calls, and Anna tries desperately to forget him.

Five years pass, and Anna finally moves on with Dante after giving up hope that Jude will ever return—until they come face to face again in a chance encounter. Reeling, Anna discovers the life-altering secret of why Jude never contacted her—and why they can’t be together. But the passion that ignited between them on an exotic beach years ago never died, making it impossible to stay away from each other.

Release Blitz & Review: Destined by Blood by C.C. Wood

Destined BannerPageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00069]

Title: Destined by Blood

Series: Bitten Origins #1

Author: CC Wood

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: October 17

Goodreads

Synopsis

For fans of C.C. Wood’s Bitten series, discover how it all began…

In a mythical land not of this time or place, two lovers are drawn together. Alaunus and Aveta. Their destinies flow through their veins, borne in their very blood.

Lost in the discovery of newfound passion, neither of them sees the evil that stalks their every move…until it’s too late.

As Alaunus lies upon his deathbed, Aveta seeks help from the god and goddess, willing to conjure a dangerous power to save his life. Through love and desperation, she creates a new magic that will affect the future of her world ¬— and ours.

Review:

C.C. Wood had us under her book spell. Destined by Blood was the first book we have read of hers and were blown away. The story of Aveta and Alaunus was bewitching. We were right there with Finn and Kerry and their journey to witnessing the creation of the first vampire. Aveta and Alaunus’ love story was so amazing to read about. They were one in mind, body, and soul. Aveta was a widow, outcast, and a witch. She had been shunned by everyone in her village, except by Alaunus. He was son of the chieftain and was favored to be the leader of the villagers. His father had always planned to have him marry an “innocent” woman named Rhiannon, but Aveta had his heart. Alaunus and Aveta loved each other to the end of the world and back, and would do anything for each other. They would be tested day after day to see how strong their love truly was. How far would they go to make sure their love lasted? Could they continue to love each other no matter what? This book was one of the most captivating books we have read. Destined by Blood was tempting, unique, and so enchanting. We read the book in less than 3 hours. Yes, it is just that charming. We are going to have to read every book in the Bitten Origins series. Destined by Blood was the best paranormal romance we have read this year.

about-the-book-4

At fifteen I fell in love. His name was Jake Stephens and he took the abandoned, lonely girl I had been and made me whole. His love was a pure and unconditional love that made every day better than the last…a fairy tale of my very own.

But this story isn’t about Jake. It’s about Abel Madden; the man I meet after the fairy tale goes to hell. A cocky, arrogant man who says what he wants, does as he pleases, and makes no excuses for it. He irritates me—downright pisses me off at times—but he also brings me back to life.

My name is Sidney Ellis and this is my story of finding love twice—the first when I needed it most and the second when I never saw it coming.

Release Blitz, Review, and Giveaway: Allure Behind Rose by Emily Bowie

Man And Female Leags

***

cooltext203305474009112

amazon-goodreadsAll Rose Hart wants to do is put her past behind her, but it seems she can never escape the drama. Attempting to take control of her life she moves out with a new roommate, Sarah Boswell. Unfortunately, Sarah’s past is littered with questionable choices that affect Rose in ways that could alter her life forever.

Kane Thornton is one of Castle’s top foot soldiers in his empire of crime. He enters Rose’s life on orders from an uncle she never knew existed. For two years he kept a healthy distance, torn over being loyal to Castle and succumbing to his secret love for the woman he has been ordered to protect and not love. He never thought he would be capable of feeling this way over anyone again. His tragic past made him cold…emotionless. Rose was alluring. His need for her insatiable. Despite everything he thought he stood for, he knew he had to do everything he could so she would be his.

Bound together in a world of crime Rose was thrust into, their lives become entwined as they fight to keep their love alive despite the chaos of love, lust, and danger. The greatest battle they will face is the one that has the power to destroy them.

This is a romantic suspense novel and is told by the main character’s’ POV.

This is book three in the Castle series but can be read as a standalone. However, I recommend reading the prior books in the series, as characters play recurring roles throughout

Warning: This book deals with mature subject matters such as coarse language and explicit sexual situations. It is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

Review:

Allure Behind Rose was one of the most thrilling romance books we have read this year. We keep asking ourselves how come this is the first book we have read of Emily’s? It’s never too late to join the party right? This novel had us intrigued from page one. We actually read it 2 times in a week because it was that good! Allure Behind Rose had everything..action, love, drama, mystery, explosions, and stalking…but in a sexy way 😉 Rose Hart is a young woman who is lost in her life. She has had to deal with personal issues, family matters, and she wants a new start. But don’t underestimate her because she is one brave woman. She wants to make the changes to get her life back on track, and she is ready for any obstacle that life throws her way whether she truly wants to be or not. Kane Thornton is probably the sexiest and most mysterious faux med student ever. He works for Castle, the boss of a crime empire. Rose and Kane are the modern version of Bonnie and Clyde. They each have a past that they can’t seem to escape and continue to find out what they are capable of throughout the book.  It was really love at first stalk ;). Kane and Rose have been friends for some time and want to take it to the next level. Their relationship is definitely hot and cold. One day they are ready to take the next step and then they go without talking for weeks. No matter how much time they spend apart or how many people don’t want them together, their attraction is undeniable. They start learning more about themselves because they are in each others  lives. Rose and Kane have to decide if they are ready to be vulnerable and let each other in because together they are unstoppable. Is Rose ready for the family business? Can Kane let go and open up for Rose? Allure Behind Rose will have you hanging on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next. You wont be able to put the book down because it’s addicting from the beginning to end. Make sure you have a bottle of wine ready 😉
