Eight Goodbyes by Christine Brae

Published by: Vesuvian Books

Publication date: September 4th 2018

Genres: Adult, Romance

Goodreads

When Tessa Talman meets Simon Fremont for the first time, not only is she attracted to him, she’s intrigued by how different their lives are. He’s a dedicated scientist, practical, pragmatic, and grounded—while she’s a head-in-the-clouds romance author. As their relationship grows, they agree to meet in places around the world, while continuing to live on opposite sides of the globe.

Though their feelings for each other deepen, their priorities remain the same. Simon is in a hurry to be financially sound and settle down, but Tessa is enjoying her freedom and newfound success. Neither is willing to give in, but as each goodbye gets harder, Tessa begins to wonder whether fame is the path to happiness, or if she has everything she needs in Simon.

Just as Tessa finds the courage to go after her own happily ever after, the unthinkable happens, separating them in ways they never imagined.

To move forward, she must let go of the past, and determine once and for all if love is truly more powerful than the pain of goodbye.

Where She Went by Gayle Forman
Goodreads Button with Shadow

#1:

“I needed to hate someone and you’re the one I love the most, so it fell on you.”

#2:

“But I’d do it again. I know that now. I’d make that promise a thousand times over and lose her a thousand times over to have heard her play last night or to see her in the morning sunlight. Or even without that. Just to know that she’s somewhere out there. Alive.”

#3:

“I look at her there in the shadows of the shut-down city, her hair falling onto her face, and I can see her trying to figure out if I’ve lost it. And I have to fight the urge to take her by the shoulders and slam her against a shuttered building until we feel the vibrations ringing through both of us. Because I suddenly want to hear her bones rattle. I want to feel the softness of her flesh give, to hear her gasp as my hip bone jams into her. I want to yank her head back until her neck is exposed. I want to rip my hands through her hair until her breath is labored. I want to make her cry and then lick up the tears. And then I want to take my mouth to hers, to devour her alive, to transmit all the things she can’t understand.”

#4:

“Letting go. Everyone talks about it like it’s the easiest thing. Unfurl your fingers one by one until your hand is open. But my hand has been clenched into a fist for three years now; it’s frozen shut.”

Cover Reveal ~ Thigh Highs by Katia Rose


~~~

Thigh Highs by Katia Rose

Publication date: October 26th 2017

Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

Modelling lingerie for her arch-nemesis was not on Christina’s to-do list.

Then again, neither was he.

Aaron Penn might be the talk of the advertising school they both attend, but to Christina he’s just an egomaniac with a cocky smirk to match. Fast forward to the end of term, when a class project gone wrong has her stripping down to a negligee and letting Aaron photograph her to advertise a line of women’s underwear.

She expects suggestive comments and smarmy-eyed stares, but when Aaron gets behind the camera he treats her body like a work of art. Even though all she’s got on is a scrap of satin, the room suddenly feels way too hot.

As the tension between them builds to expensive-panty-melting-levels, Christina finds herself caught between falling for the complicated artist who knows just what poses to put her in, and wondering why he acts like such an irritating hotshot around everyone else.

~Author Bio~

Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart, and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.

Cover Reveal ~ The Internship of Pippa Darling by Stephanie Keyes


~~~

The Internship of Pippa Darling by Stephanie Keyes

Publication date: March 16th 2018

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Goodreads |Amazon

Romance and blarney abound off the coast of Ireland as a sexy, yet snarky, bestselling author mentors a grad student with a no-filter personality and a dreamer’s soul.

New York Times bestselling author Finn Burke might be sexy as hell, but his book is a depressing hole of darkness. Which is why grad student Pippa Darling almost refuses his offer to intern for him in Ireland. The thing is, Burke can give her something she can’t achieve on her own: a possible ticket to literary success and a way out of her summer housekeeping job at Dad’s B&B. And who knows? She might learn something, even if Burke can’t compare to her favorite writer—the mysterious James Black.

Finn Burke is a revision addict, to be sure. Nothing he writes today will ever be as good as what he might write tomorrow. His second book was a runaway bestseller, but it’s his failed first book he’s most afraid of repeating. With his agent’s drop-dead submission date of September 1st approaching and nothing written, he needs an intern to help him get organized. But when Pippa Darling shows up, with a bloody James Black book in hand, no less, all his plans go straight to hell.

The more time Finn spends with Pippa, the more she’s the one influencing his writing, and soon he faces an even bigger struggle within himself: let go of his painful memories or remain stuck in the past. As Pippa fights her growing attraction to her mentor, she discovers Finn’s not everything he seems and bestseller lists aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

Cover Reveal ~ The Billionaire’s Betrayal by Mika Lane


~~~

The Billionaire’s Betrayal by Mika Lane

(Billionaire, #2)

Publication date: January 16th 2018

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

I own the hottest boutique hotel in Manhattan. Only the rich and famous stay here. They’re the only ones who can afford it. And they’re the only ones we allow.

I’m busy, I’m successful, I’m rich, and I can seduce any woman I want. So when I agreed to another god-awful “bachelor auction” fundraiser for some freaking charity, I prepared myself for a date with some crazy chick who blathered on about her cat, and how many children she’d like to have one day.

Thanks, but no thanks.

So when my “date,” the winner of the latest auction of my bad boy self, emailed me to set up a rendezvous, I planned on having one drink and bailing. My assistant knew exactly when to call me so I could fake an emergency.

Only this date was different. Sure, she was beautiful—Manhattan is full of stunning women, mostly looking for rich husbands. But this one was the brilliant CEO of a tech firm. And she could have given two craps about me. Before I knew it, her half-empty martini sat on the bar wearing the slightest smudge of her red lipstick.

Was she beating me at my own game? I couldn’t let that happen. I wouldn’t.

Cover Reveal ~ Total Exposure by J.A. Huss: Giveaway!

Total Exposure by J.A. Huss

(Jordan’s Game Series, #1)

Publication date: January 16th 2018

Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

The spotlight is my enemy.

The cameras are my cure.

Jordan Wells says he can help me. Heal my soul and fix my fear so I can perform on stage again to a sold-out crowd. His game gives me a reason to go on, but his price is total exposure.

The stranger watching my every move is anonymous.

Or is he?

The daily notes he leaves seem familiar. His unreasonable requests bring out all my hidden fears. And then one night in the dark… his touch is everything I ever wanted.

It was supposed to be a guaranteed win.

A way to move past the performance anxiety.

One less thing to worry about in a sea of dreadful things to worry about.

But what we do in the secret anonymity of night might be more frightening than anything else.

Because I like it. And I want more of it. And I’m willing to give up everything just so I can play this game forever…
