How_Sweet_It_Is-2

Synopsis:

A free-spirited woman…

 

Eccentric interior designer Mirelle Brasseur is tired of relationships with handsome, charming, fickle men—in other words men just like the father who abandoned her. She’s fun and funky, but takes her career seriously. She’s not about to let a man derail her dreams or wound her heart again.

 

An ambitious man…

 

Award winning chef Bradan Hunt is handsome and charming, but he’s always honest with women about his one date-one night rule. Between his best-selling cookbooks, his TV appearances, and his restaurant, he’s too busy for a relationship. He saw what a lack of ambition did to his parents. Bradan wants more. His newest restaurant is going to be the best, so he hires Mirelle to help him design it.

 

Turn up the heat…

 

Soon it isn’t just the food sizzling in the kitchen, in spite of Mirelle’s misgivings, as the attraction between the chef and the designer heats up. It will take more than one date-one night for them to overcome their pasts and find a way to cook up a sweet future together.

About Kelly Jamieson

Kelly-Jamieson-224x300-3Kelly Jamieson writes romances with heat that’s sweet. Her writing has been described as “emotionally complex”, “sweet and satisfying” and “blisteringly sexy”. If she can stop herself from reading or writing, she loves to cook. She has shelves of cookbooks that she reads at length. She also enjoys gardening in the summer, and in the winter she likes to read gardening magazines and seed catalogues (there might be a theme here…) She also loves shopping, especially for clothes and shoes. But her family takes precedence over everything else (yes, even writing). She has two teenage children who are the best kids in the world, not that she’s biased, and a wonderful husband who does loads of laundry while she plays on the computer writing stories.

Excerpt:

Copyright © 2014 by Kelly Jamieson

 

Bradan threw himself into work that night. Every table was booked for three full turns, and some even four. Even as he was firing a beef entrée, even as he was carefully ladling creamy sake foam sauce and matsutake mushrooms over a piece of perfectly roasted salmon, he was thinking about Mirelle. He should be thinking about the menu for the new restaurant. He needed to get serious about that and nail things down. He tried to make his mind go there, but goddammit, he kept seeing Mirelle, her tear-streaked face at the shelter when she’d looked at that mangy mutt. Christ, she had a soft heart. Which gave him a strangely soft feeling in his own chest. He liked that about her. He wanted to comfort her, to make her feel better.

Fuck, his mind was messed up.

She’d turned him down again. She had a date with another guy. Who she’d just met. Jesus! More curses galloped through his mind as he worked. He handed the plate up to the waiter waiting for it.

“Hey, Chef.”

“Yeah.”

Jimmy stood there frowning. “Is this…uh…you put the sake sauce on the lamb.”

Bradan stared in horror at what he’d just done. Then he rolled his eyes up in disgust and snatched the plate back. “Give me five minutes. Apologize to the table. Comp their dessert.”

“Yeah, sure thing.”

Fuck, fuck, fuck. His hands flew as he worked, and he and Paco did their familiar dance around each other, spinning and moving as they cooked. The noise and chaos of the kitchen rose and fell around him, pots clanging, voices shouting, the sizzle of a filet hitting hot oil in a pan.

He needed to seriously get a grip here. Women never rejected him.

He almost snorted at his own ego. That’s all this was. A little bruise to his fragile male ego. Christ, he had to be able to handle a woman who wasn’t interested. So what if it hadn’t happened since…well since that painful teenage incident he tried never to think about.

He’d had a crush on Tiffany Hudson all through high school. One day she’d actually smiled at him in math class and then talked to him at lunch. They’d begun a little flirtation and he’d begun to think there was hope that she might actually date him, when his parents’ business went under. The only job his dad could find was at Bronc’s Burgers, the cool place where all the kids hung out. Bradan hadn’t wanted to go there, but he wanted Tiffany. While sitting there trying to impress her, hoping like hell his dad didn’t see him, his worst fear had materialized. His dad had called out a big greeting and waved from the kitchen.

“Who’s that?” Tiffany’d asked with raised eyebrows. And when he’d told her, she’d looked at him with repugnance and disdain, and that had been the end of that budding romance.

Even though now he knew Tiffany Hudson was not worth getting his boxer-briefs in a knot over, there would probably always be a little burn of humiliation remembering that time.

Bradan prepared the poached prawns with Asian pear, mint and coriander, meticulously arranging the food on the plate.

And now Mirelle had rejected him. More than once. She in no way compared to Tiffany Hudson. Mirelle was warm and sweet and yeah, maybe a little goofy with her pet rat and wacky clothes and purses, but Christ, he was ferociously attracted to her.

Mirelle had said she’d like to taste some of the dishes to give her design inspiration. He could cook for her. Make some of the dishes he was planning for the menu of the new restaurant.

But she was dating some other guy.

And he was an idiot to even be thinking of pushing things with her. She was getting him all tied up in unfamiliar knots, making him do crazy things like volunteer at an animal shelter, making him screw up at work. He had to stop obsessing with her.

#Synopsis:

They were the most unlikely pair to fall in love. . .

 

A golden boy with a dark past. A bi-racial girl with epic faith. These two weren’t supposed to survive the system, sketchy origins and all.

 

Trevor Kyle has loved Shanice Bailey forever—from the time they both landed in the Baptist Children’s Home until they were young adults raised by adoptive families that had no resemblance to the worlds from which they came. Trevor has always been her protector and champion even when he was busy pushing her away for her own good.

 

Shanice has always taken her faith in Trevor seriously. Her childhood oath is strengthened when she learns the true meaning of family. But After Trevor’s adoptive parents die tragically and his bachelor uncle takes him in, she finds that the boy she’s always looked up to has changed, and not for the better. Yet, she can’t bring herself to forget him as her pure childhood love for him blossoms into something more.

 

The most generous heart and truest faith does not travel an easy path. Just when Trevor thinks he’s found a way to keep his promise to be with Shanice forever, a specter from the past threatens their future plans.

 

35StarsReview:

By definition Obsidian is a hard and dark rock that is formed by the heat of lava.  The process of forming this gem is raw and heated but the outcome is beautiful.  That is how I compare the definition of Obsidian to the novel, Obsidian Faith.  The faith that it took one girl to believe in a boy who had lost his way in a tough world is similar to the way that an obsidian gem is formed.  The process is not easy but the end result is flawless if allowed to have the beauty enter in.

Shanice and Trevor grew up in the same children’s home.  Both were orphaned by mothers more interested in drugs and fathers that were unknown.  They became surrogate siblings and stuck together even being adopted by family friend’s that kept these two children close together.  Everything was going great until a tragedy took away the stability that was given to a child well deserving.  Torn apart and moved in with a uncle, Trevor and Shanice are separated for the very first time.

As life gets more complicated the love between Shanice and Trevor remain simple, but complications from the past keep coming back to separate them.  Trevor does what he knows and pushes away the one person who never gave up on him.  Can time heal wounds?

The conflict of the story will leave the reader speechless and desiring to soak up as much as possible to see what the resolution is.  The best part of the story?  Watching a boy that was given little opportunities in life receive a gift in the form of a girl who believes in him more than anyone in the world ever has.  Trevor is her protector even if that means protecting her from himself.  I loved that about him.  And I loved how magnetized Shanice is with Trevor.  No is not in her vocabulary.  Shanice is beautiful inside and outside and that is why I named her my favorite character.

Bev Elle is a wonderful author and I look forward to more of her future works.  Check out

#Excerpt

 

“You want to be a doctor?” Trevor said.

“No, a nurse. I want to help people get over drug addiction and stuff, but I don’t want to go to school for all the years it takes to be a doctor.”

“That’s cool. Just don’t fall for some doctor and forget about me,” he teased.

“I’d never forget you, Trevor,” she said. “And I’ll never fall for some doctor.”

“How do you know?” he said. “You’ll go off to college and I’ll be as good as forgotten.”

“You’ll forget me first,” she said. “You already have. You’re the one who’s taking Emily Winters to the prom and everything.”

“It’s just another rite of passage.”

“A what?”

“It’s one of those things you’re expected to do at certain ages that transition you from one stage in life to another.”

“Oh, well. I’m not passing any rites with anyone but you,” She said.

“You’re too young to say that, Shanice. You’ve got a lot of growing up to do.”

“So do you.” She protested, just as he expected her to.

“Yeah, but I’m closer to twenty-one than you are, and I’ll be going off to college in a couple of years.”

“I know, but I won’t forget you,” Shanice said with conviction.

“How do you know this?” Trevor asked.

“Because I’m going to be like Amy March in Little Women.”

“Never heard of it,” Trevor said.

“Probably because boys think it’s stupid. But there is a Little Men, and Jo’s Boys and they’re about orphans and stuff. Anyway, they’re classics. Mom read the books when she was about my age, so she gave them to me for Christmas.”

“What does this have to do with you not forgetting me?”

“You’ll have to read Little Women to find out,” she said cryptically.

#Synopsis:

Sara needs to escape – and an idyllic seaside town on the other side of the world seems like the perfect place. She’d always wanted to visit Australia, but the first thing she meets on the gorgeous, white sand beach is not a kangaroo but a wounded, lost Beagle!

 

Veterinarian Dr Craig Murray can’t get the beautiful American out of his mind. They may come from different cultures – and even speak different “English” sometimes – but he knows they can have a future together. Can he convince Sara that this is more than just a vacation fling?

 

Then Sara discovers that Craig isn’t quite what he seems and the past that she has been running away from comes back to haunt her. Now she needs to decide if she can risk it all again for another chance at love…

 

* EACH BOOK CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE, or read them in order for more fun! Characters you loved from past books often return to delight again in this sweet romance series set in Summer Beach, Australia.

 

“escape Down Under…and find love in Summer Beach, where cold noses touch warm hearts!”

Review:

After reading Playing for Love I can say that my favorite part of the book is how descriptive H.Y. Hanna is in allowing readers to experience the beauty of Australia and especially of Summer Beach.  I have never been to Australia but after reading this novel I can feel the experience of what it would be like to visit.  From visiting the Opera House in Sydney to deciphering the slang that locals use.  The tastes of the food and smells of the beach were only a few things that H.Y. Hanna gifted to her readers.  Plus the story has a wonderful tale of an everyday woman experiencing life being truly expected for who she is.  I really wanted to heroine to receive her HEA.

Sara is this woman who truly represents all of us.  She has killer curves and a real life that to her is what she loves.  A little problem though.  She has been unlucky in the love department.  I mean really unlucky in the love department.

Than when Sara visits Australia she meets one curt Dr. Craig Murray.  A vet that she found to take a list Beagle to.  Their initial meeting lacks something to be desired.  I truly wanted to like this guy, but some of his actions had me doubting him.  I wanted him to be Sara’s knight in shining armor.  But he represents something that Sara is wanting never to experience again.  It was easy to understand Sara and her being hesitant.  Anyone would emphasize with her.  Can this two from separate continents find a common ground?  Or will the past repeat itself?

I am now starting to read the rest of the series.  I am hooked just from this very first book.  Each book is a stand alone, but I recommend you take a chance on the Summer Beach Vets Series.  The novels each hold a meaning and loads of sweet romance.

Feel by Karen-Anne Stewart Blog Tour + Teasers & Giveaway

FellTour bannerTitle: Feel

Author: Karen-Anne Stewart

Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance

Release Date: December 15, 2014

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23352590-feel

Feel Cover-2

Synopsis

The one whose emotions I can’t feel is the one who makes me feel the most.

I was a sensitive, at least that’s what I was told by the boy who saved me from the overwhelming emotions that consumed my soul, the boy who saved me from myself when my gift became stronger. Through the years, he was my redemption, my reason to take my next breath…then, he was gone.

Jensen always told me I was strong, but I didn’t believe him until I was forced to be strong on my own, and I kept breathing without him. I’ve taken 42 million breaths since the moment he sent me away. Now, four years later, he’s standing in front of me, and I can barely breathe.

This isn’t just a story about the abilities I possess; it’s a story about something much stronger…the love of the man who possesses every part of me.

***Disclaimer – Feel is intended for readers 18+ due to strong language, mature scenes, and some violence.

 

45stars

Review:

Feel is such a perfect title for a phenomenal novel.  The story is raw, pumped full of energy, and such a great romance.  There is a little bit of everything mixed in for a lover of a multitude of genres.  Everything from suspense, action, paranormal to a tasty amount of romance.  Jump right in and you will Feel the essence of the story.

Feel is initially about a girl(Saige) whose gift allows her to try to save lives.  The power she has been given has made it to where she can sense the emotional energy of people around her.  That can be a little bit overwhelming in a group of anxious crowd.  Saige also has another ability, but that I will allow you to read about.

Jensen is a boy now man that Saige has always loved.  He taught her to handle the array of emotions that she can pick up.  Then he betrayed her.  And I hurt for what occurred to Saige at the hands of Jensen sending her away.

In one day Saige’s life changes when she walks into the life of the man who left her years ago.  It will take a village to bring peace where another gifted person is causing mayhem and destruction.

Besides the main characters my favorite secondary character was Andy.  Andy was this outspoken guy who just never could shut up.  He seemed to sense when Saige needed the atmosphere to be lightened and he would joke their way out of the heaviness of a situation.  That is what made me love him so much more.

The author writes a compelling story allowing the reader to sense the overpowering feeling of what it takes to have the power to feel the emotions of everyone around you.  For me while reading of Saige’s gift I had a sense of heaviness that what she received for a power was one that was not to be taken lightly.  I was glad that Saige started to be able to share about her powers with someone else.

I cannot share enough great ways of how the story shows good prevailing over evil.  I love the flow of energy that the plot line holds.  That keeps the reader attention until the very end.

I am excited to see more from Karen-Anne Stewart.  She writes stories of epic nature.  I am very glad to have been able to share Feel.

Excerpt

I place my hand over his, leaning my cheek against the warmth of his touch before backing away so I can see him.  I’m insane for falling for him again, but it seems my heart isn’t giving me a choice at the moment, ignoring how the rest of me is scared as hell it will never survive if he breaks it this time.

“I don’t want you to hurt,” I whisper.  I don’t.

“Then, please stop fighting what we are together and get your stubborn ass over here so I can kiss you like I haven’t seen your pretty face in four long fucking years.”

I take one step towards him and that’s all he needs to wrap me in his arms, pulling me against his chest to close the rest of the distance between us as his hungry mouth collides against mine.  His teeth nip the fullness of my bottom lip then his tongue caresses and strokes the sensitive, tingling skin.  All strength in my body is stolen by the liberating dominance in his kiss, bruising and healing wrapped in one breathtaking seduction.  My knees no longer work, but the rest of my body becomes alive, responding to his touch, awakening me from the emptiness I’ve lived in for so long.  This is what I’ve craved.  What I’ve missed.  His taste, scent, and touch have haunted me, and I breathe them all in deeply now, terrified they will be gone again.

His fingers slide against my neck before softly tangling my hair in his fist.  My head spins at his gentle touch mixed with his rough, passionate kiss.  My lips part, granting his tongue all the access it wants, and he takes it greedily, sliding his tongue against mine, taming and setting me free.  His kiss is scorching, searing me as liquid heat pulses low in my stomach.  I feel the damp cotton pressing against where I need him to be so badly right now. Soft whimpers rumble up my throat, the needy pants muffled against his hot mouth. Jensen’s hand pulls me flush to his body and I feel him, hardened and throbbing, against my stomach.  My gasp fills the air.  I twist my waist, straddling myself against the muscles on his thigh.

SYNOPSIS

Wealthy, attractive Lucas Reika treats life like a party, moving from bar to bar and man to man. Thumbing his nose at his restaurateur father’s demand that he earn his keep, Lucas instead seduces a valued employee in the kitchen of their flagship restaurant, earning himself an ultimatum: lose access to his father’s money or stay in the middle of nowhere with a man he has secretly lusted over from afar.

Quiet, hard-working Jared McFarland loves his farm on the outskirts of Hope, Arizona, but he aches to have someone to come home to at the end of the day. Jared agrees to take in his longtime crush as a favor. But when Lucas invades his heart in addition to his space, Jared has to decide how much of himself he’s willing to risk and figure out if he can offer Lucas enough to keep him after his father’s punishment is over.

Review:

I was really excited to receive the chance by the chance to review the audiobook version of McFarland’s Farm.  I am visually impaired so a lot of what I do is by speech-to-text or by audio version.  When Cardeno C. and WLK Book Promotions gave me the chance to review this I jumped at this opportunity.  When one person has limited sight more than likely other senses really pull through and strengthen.  For me it has been my hearing.  I am always listening to talking booking that my state library has as well as Audible.com.

I absolutely loved Paul Morey’s narration.  His ability to use different tones for the voice was superb.  My favorite was his voice for the ex-wife of Jarod.  You can tell by the different tones and pitches he used that the ex-wife had warm feelings for Jarod, but she also carried some sass to her.  Paul Morey also narrates perfectly for Jarod being a rough and tumble kind of guy.  His voice for Jarod hides a hint of having some shyness in him.  Here Jarod is this big hunk of a man, but he is very insecure.  He holds scars and Paul is able to carry that in his voice narration for Jarod.

The story is a short one.  It runs approximately 2 1/2 hours long.  It is just long enough for a person to close their eyes and relax to Paul Morey’s voice carrying a story of hope (and yes, in a town named Hope), and finding love in the best possible places.

For someone that is visually impaired, I do find this story able to be carried by the imagination.  I know I will be looking for more audio books by this author and narrator as well.

Author Bio:

Cardeno C. – CC to friends – is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few “awwws” into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.

Cardeno’s Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/M Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, “You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day.”

Living in a two-bedroom apartment with my boyfriend and his best friend doesn’t give me much room to have a designated office. That’s why the coffee shops around my neighborhood have become my sanctuary. I order a small latte, sit at a table near the back, and get lost in my writing.

Author: Eden Butler

Genre: NA | Contemporary Romance

Release Date: December 22, 2014

Synopsis:

She left glitter in his AC vents. He put green dye in her conditioner.

She buttered his bathroom floor, and he kidnapped her precious puppy.

Layla Mullens hates Donovan Donley. His crude language, his wide shoulders, his crystal blue eyes…she hates that she can’t stop herself…from kissing him or landing in his bed.

And Donovan Donley wants nothing more than to knock Layla off her princess pedestal. He hates her stuck up attitude and her soft, tempting lips. He especially hates that her father is his coach.

But he’s fine with their arrangement—act horrible to each other during the day, attack each other naked at night. It works.
But one night changes everything. When Layla doesn’t show, and Donovan’s cold bed stays empty, the lies he tells himself to keep Layla out of his mind aren’t enough to keep him from missing her. And needing her. Something he promised himself would never happen.

The white flags in their prank war have been lowered but their high stakes battle has just begun.

She is currently living under teenage rule alongside her husband in southeast Louisiana.

CLAIMING SERENITY ~ EXCERPT

“Come here,” he said, wanting her, just then, but knowing that she needed a moment to calm, to have those worries so evident in the slow way she moved toward him, eased. He let her come to his side, right against his chest and for the first time, Donovan held her tight against him. “I’m not the kind of guy you need.” She sat up, looking at him. “I’m no Prince Charming. I’m not good for anyone and I doubt I ever will be.”

“So do you want this to end? You have doubts?”

He hated the idea of never touching her again. He hated that being without her touch, her taste, would bother him greatly, and if he were a better man, a stronger man, a decent man at all, he would tell her to go. Donovan knew that if he were the kind of man he once was, before betrayal and disappointment fractured whatever he thought he might want one day, then he’d thank Layla for her time and attention and tell her his doubts were too great, that their moment had passed.

But this Donovan was a selfish bastard on his best days. Still, he’d give her something, likely not what she deserved, but something he’d never given to any woman. Ever.

“If I said I didn’t care about you, that would be a lie. I do. Am I in love with you?” He waited, measuring her expression, relaxing when she didn’t look afraid. “No, sorry, I’m not. But I like the way we move together. I like that I can get lost in your body.” I like the way I can still smell your perfume on my pillow after you leave, he said to himself. “I like that you let me do things to your body that I’ve only ever dreamed about.” I like how free you are with me. How beautiful you look when you’re underneath me, falling to pieces. “I like that you don’t ask for anything but my body, for the way I make yours feel.” I love how you let me take you, let me love you like we won’t have another second of this in life.
