BLURB: 

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.
Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.
And in a flash, she was gone.
Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.
Caged.
Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.
When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

Bad by Stevie J. Cole and LP Lovell • BLOG TOUR & REVIEW






BLURB


True power is never held by good men, only the most perfect of villains. And she and I are both villains...

I stole her, and she's so very angry. The cartel princess doesn't like being a pretty little pawn. She fights me when she should fear me. But oh, how her defiance excites me.

She would kill me if she could, and I'd ruin her if I had an ounce less control. What a twisted game we play with sweet threats and cruel promises. I crave her madness in the most depraved ways because I know she'll be so beautiful when she bleeds.

A queen who could set the world on fire and a king who would call it rain. Two very bad people who want very bad things are never safe together.

Some love stories have no heroes.

Review by: Tatia 

These two badass women make loving wrong so right. Seriously. I thought it was just Jude that I loved so much. No one can compare to him, but Ronan Cole proves that he doesn't have to compare to him because he's in a league of his own. The Russian is sick and twisted and truly masochistic. He plays his games and all to make sure he always has the advantage. There's been no one to test his limits, his strength, or his will power until Camilla. She's just another pawn. She loves the game just as much, but in a different way. Ronan is on a whole different playing field, it just took her a while to figure it out.
These two, between the deceit and the destruction, they could conquer the world or have it crumble around them. Their minds work in a way most wouldn't say is normal, but it's their normal. Apparently I like their shade of normal because I crave the depravity that Stevie JCole and LP Lovell deliver each and every time. No one else delivers such a story of this kind that I literally lose sleep over because I can't get enough. If you want sick and twisted, BAD is the story for you. Just be warned that this is like no other.

5 Stars

REVIEW BY GINA

I fell in love with this book from page one! This book was funny, sweet, sassy and sexy! It was the perfect mix to make the perfect book! 

In a why this is an opposites attract romance. These are two characters, based on their choice of colleges, have it ingrained in them to hate the other person. But sometimes a strong enough attraction can over come that or just not give into the rivalry. The "rivalry" made from some great banter between the characters. There were so many laughs while I was reading. There was also some drama and some oh so steamy scenes that filled in through out the book. It was a very well rounded, well written book!



Being a huge football fan, and dealing with my own household rivalry (my husband and I cheer for rival NFL teams) I can totally relate to these characters and I most definitely see myself and one and my husband as the other! That sort of connection makes the book even more special to me. Plain and simple, I loved this book and I think everyone needs to read it! 

5 STARS



REVIEW BY AMY

  HOOO LEEEE CRAP! I LOVED this book hard. My goodness, I know that Nikki can write steamy, sultry sexy goodness but this was everything and more. This was sweet vs. cunning, adorable vs. cut throat all with a side of bad ass. Let’s face it, Kayla was a head strong amazing woman who knew exactly what she wanted…until jay turned things around and made her question everything she thought she knew about love and loyalty. She was cheering for the win and he came her biggest cheerleader.

        I’ve heard of school rivalry but these two take it to the next level. Kayla is Buckeye fanatic fan #1. Living her dream as head cheerleader to THE ONLY school she would ever consider. Top of her game and able to put most men’s football knowledge to shame, there is absoultely nothing she doesn’t think she knows about the game. Enter Jay. Sweet innocent Jay. Wolverine by choice and great as his game. Until he meets the biggest play of his life and she happens to root for his biggest rival. Watching these two navigate a “forbidden” cat and mouse was entertaining rot say the least. They made me fall in love again with football and everything a young love can endoure.

        I have to admit that the cover for this book threw me off a little. I was expecting some tortured bad boy and his hang ups, but what I got was so much better. It was my college years brought back. The thrill of the game, the roar of the crowd and the heat between two die hard fans that almost couldn’t get past their own competitiveness to see the the love blooming. This book was amazing and full of zest for more. It had me wanting to abandon all adult responsibilities to read more and more, really not wanting it to end and p[raying for a sequel. (Please Nikki!!) Well done in every angle and a completely enjoyable read. 4.5 stars and a complete recommend.

4.5 STARS

This tight end is at the top of his game.
He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His—ahem—stats are perfect. But I can’t fall for him. He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival? This guy is their star player.

One accident changed my life.
One single second changed everything for me.
In one terrifying moment, everything I knew was gone.
Music is the only thing that keeps me holding on.
When the opportunity arises for me to tour with country music star, Scarlett Belle, I take it.
An escape.
A chance.

He is forbidden to me.
The President of a Motorcycle Club.
A man who could bring noise back into my soundless world.

The only one that I will let seep through my hungry veins.
But he’s always there.
And he’s persistent.
But if he knew what I kept behind closed doors…no.

Without him.

Mr. Control by Maya Hughes • RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW


Title: Mr. Control
Author: Maya Hughes
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 20, 2017



Blurb


She’s the one woman I should stay away from, but I can’t help myself...



They say being a billionaire has its perks, but I hardly notice. After being widowed, my beautiful little girl is the most important thing to me. Esme hasn’t spoken to anyone but me since her mother’s death. When she goes missing, I’m thisclose to losing it.

When Esme turns up safe and sound with a cute waitress, I’m ready to give the lady a reward and be on our way, but then Esme speaks to her. It’s simple, a mere “thank you”, but I know I can’t let the waitress get away.

Melanie is nothing like the woman who throw themselves at me. Her big brown eyes take my breath away from the minute I lay eyes on her. She fills out her pink waitress uniform with curves I can’t wait to get my hands on. I can’t get her out of my head.

Melanie’s bringing my little girl out of her shell, which means she’s strictly off limits. But having her under my roof and close enough to touch is too much of a temptation. My legendary control is beginning to slip and I don’t know how much longer I can resist breaking every rule I have.

Mr. Control is a HOT romance with heart that will tug at your heartstrings, melt your panties, and leave you begging for more. HEA included! This single dad romance is approximately 62,000 words!

Review by: Flavia 

To the world Rhys was a billionaire who had everything he wanted, I mean he was giving money away all the time to different charities. But Rhys has a secret that nobody knows and he can't let anyone find out. He is a widower raising his daughter who hasn't said a word since her mother died. She only speaks to him. But then she meets Melanie. And for some reason Esme has connected to Melanie, and now Rhys will do anything to have Melanie come work for him

Melanie has not had an easy life and she doesn't expect things to work out for her ever. Her dad ran off and her mother was a junkie who would do anything to ruin her life. So when she sees Esme offering to help her she does everything she can to protect his little girl. And when Rhys offers her a job she declines because she isn't a nanny and what does she know about kids. But from the moment she met Esme she knew they had a connection. And her life was falling apart, so she didn't actually have another way out. So she accepts his offer. And she can't deny the attraction she has to Rhys either.


https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/hostedimages/1510825545i/24458255.jpg

And even though Rhys tells himself to stay away from Melanie he can't help but want to be with her. But at the first sign of trouble he assumes the worst of her. And from there it just goes downhill. Can Melanie forgive him for thinking that she is betraying him and how can Rhys trust her when he can't trust anyone but himself.

A sweet, little drama romance that will keep you entertained. Felt that the ending was a bit rushed and that some questions were left hanging for me. And for some reason I think that Rhys didn't live up to his 'dark hero persona'. But all in all a good read

3.85 Stars

Unexpected Arrivals by Stephie Walls • RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW


Title: Unexpected Arrivals
Author: Stephie Walls
Genre: Coming of Age/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 20, 2017




Blurb

It had to be a joke.

Any minute now, a van would drive up and Ashton Kutcher would slide the door open, laughing hysterically at my melodramatic performance on the front porch.

But nothing happened.

The words on the page jumbled into a toxic mess my brain refused to comprehend, much less accept.

Please consider this letter as a formal request to arrange a paternity test (DNA).

I barely remembered Chelsea Airy.

That wasn’t true—we’d gone out once, and we’d been friends for a while after. But I hadn’t heard so much as a peep from her since I’d gotten married. I’d reached out a handful of times, but she’d quit responding and fell off the face of the earth. There hadn’t been a text, an email, a phone call, not even a Facebook message, much less a stork in the last five years.

My wife could forgive a lot, but she’d never wanted children—much less another woman’s.

REVIEW BY: LEEANN

I was a bit conflicted while reading this book. I enjoyed it, but it did drag on a bit long in the 1st half. The 2nd half however, was interesting and captivating.

This is the story of two people who meet in high school and are a perfect match. They both come from wealthy families but have very different backgrounds.
They begin their journey and think they know which direction they are heading in but life has a way of getting in the way and their journey takes a severe detour leaving everyone wondering if they will ever get back on track.

This is a story about life and curveballs and making the best of a situation while life comes full circle.
As I said, it does start of slow, but once you get to about the half way mark it becomes a story that wraps you up in the emotion of the characters and by the time you get to the end you feel like their world is complete.
The characters are relatable (Except for the filthy rich part!), likeable and the support characters are highly entertaining and a huge part of the main characters lives.

This is a story that is well worth one clicking. It is a little bit sexy, a little bit angsty and is very warm and fuzzy too!

FMR's Favorite October Reads



Each month the girls at FMR pick their favorite books they read that were released during the month. Check out the list for October.




She was my first love.
She was my first hate.
The very sun in my world tried to burn me alive with her lies and cruelty.
Until I dimmed her light for good…
Or so I thought.

Now she’s back.
Cracked. Broken. Lost.
And for the first time in a long time, I feel free.
Free from our past. Free from my present that suffocates me. Free to destroy her future.

Her misery is my music.
Thrilling. Invigorating. Intoxicating.

For so long, all I’ve done is hate her.
So why do I love her?



When Ellis Earnshaw and Heathan James met as children, they couldn’t have been more different. Ellis was loud and beautiful – all blond hair, bright laughs and smiles. Heathan was dark and brooding, and obsessed with watching things die.
The pair forged an unlikely friendship, unique and strange. Until they were ripped apart by the sick cruelty of others, separated for years, both locked in a perpetual hell.
Eleven years later, Heathan is back for his girl. Back from a place from which he thought there was no return. Back to seek revenge on those who wronged them.
Time has made Heathan’s soul darker, polluted with hatred and the thirst for blood.
Time has made Ellis a shell of her former self, a little girl lost in the vastness of her pain.
As Heathan pulls Ellis out of her mental prison, reviving the essence of who she once was, down the rabbit hole they will go.
With malice in their hearts and vengeance in their veins, they will seek out the ones who hurt and destroyed them.
One at a time.
Each one more deadly than the last.
Tick Tock.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for ages 18 and over.






As a kid, Logan Preston was a brat.
Through his teens, he became the bad boy.
Now, at nineteen, no one knows what the hell to expect.


High school dropout, Logan Preston is a
good-for-nothing stoner.
A black sheep.
A disappointment.
The worst Preston Punk of the lot.
At least that's how everyone in his small town
makes him feel.
But Logan Preston has secrets.
Secrets so dark and so deep below the surface that the only way he can fight them is to stay high, high, high.
He wears cockiness as a mask.
Arrogance as his armor.
Until one girl, one night, asks one life-changing question:
What's beneath the bravado, Logan Preston?





On the streets of New Orleans, sins are committed every night.

My name is Jett Colby and I save tarnished souls. 

In the downtown, under the glittery lights of Bourbon Street, I found her in cheap lingerie, flaunting her body for callous men and money. 

From the lace of her cheap lingerie, to her garter belt, I knew she had to be saved.

She had to be mine.

Broke and destitute with no way of out, she had no choice but to come to me and into my club.  

She had no other choice but to become a Jett Girl. 

But see, that’s the thing about this city; you might think that under the dazzling lights and illusion of salvation, she’s the one that needed saving.

When the glitter fades and the dirt is washed away, the one worth saving just might be me.

**FORMALLY BECOMING A JETT GIRL**





New Orleans belongs to me.
You don't know my name, but I control everything you see--and all the things you don't.
My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met.
I didn't need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt.
To have her in my debt.
She doesn't know she caught my attention.
She should've been more careful.
I'm going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her.
It's time to collect what I'm owed.
Keira Kilgore, you're now the property of Lachlan Mount.

*Ruthless King is book one of the Mount Trilogy*      



It was like seeing a ghost. 

When my late husband’s twin brother moves back to our small town, I want to avoid him. Everything about Wes reminds me of the man I lost and the life we’d planned together, and after eighteen long months struggling just to get out of bed, I’m finally doing okay. I have a new job, an amazing support group, and a beautiful five-year-old daughter to parent. I don’t want to go backward.

But I’m drawn to him, too. He understands my grief and anger and guilt like no one else—and I understand his. Before long, that understanding becomes desire, and that desire becomes uncontrollable. 

He says he doesn't care what people think, and love can never be wrong. But life has taught me its cruelest lesson--love doesn't always win.

If only my heart would believe it.



Everybody has problems. But Travis? Yeah, he has so many problems that he finds it hard to breathe sometimes.

He spends five years catering to his ex-wife’s every want and need—all to make it possible to continue to see his child.

He isn’t supposed to fall in love with a woman, but he does.

He isn’t supposed to find someone that is willing to put up with his ex-wife’s crazy antics, but he has.

He isn’t supposed to be happy, but he is.

And all it takes is his ex-wife finding out about his new-found peace for things to change.

***

Hannah saw him and knew he was the one.

All it took was one look into that haunted man’s eyes, and she was lost, never to be found again.

She thinks she has it all. His love, a new baby made with that love, and a house to raise their blended family.

She’s wrong, and Travis’ ex-wife is out to prove it.

***

Travis doesn’t deserve Hannah. All he’s done is hurt her.

She’s done everything in her power to keep everyone happy, but the more she tries, the harder his ex-wife pushes. Until one day, there’s nothing left to push.

Hannah leaves, and Allegra wins.

But Travis isn’t willing to let her have her way any longer.

He fights back, and only gets a bullet to the chest to show for it.

Holy sweetness! Leslie McAdam has delivered one of the best reads of 2017. This book is [one] of those books that mark your life in a good way. –Girls Behind the Books

“Wow. I don’t even know where to start right now. Once I had read the blurb of SOL by Leslie McAdam, I was sold and it became an immediate must-read for me. Little did I know, the blurb does not even scratch the surface of all the emotions, the depth, the beauty this story entails. Oh my God. I still feel my tears drying while typing this. And, no, this was not the only time this book brought me to tears. I won’t go much into the storyline, in order not to spoil a thing for you and keep it as vague as the synopsis. Better go in blind, but be prepared for an onslaught of emotions.” –Meleth Bookaddicted

“What an amazing 5 Star story this was. I was not expecting this intense, raw and pure emotional journey. I knew it was going to be a great story because come on this is Leslie we’re talking about. It was so much more than a romance. It was about forgiveness.” TDC Book reviews

The army taught me discipline. Order. Control.

None of that matters the day I walk into her classroom.

Or her bedroom.

What's more important than my grade?

Not failing her.
