Girl off the Grid by Jillian Dodd & Kenzie Harp • RELEASE & REVIEW BLITZ




Girl off the Grid
by Jillian Dodd &Kenzie Harp

Release DATE:  June 27th



Blurb & Info



From USA Today bestselling author, Jillian Dodd, and her daughter, Kenzie Harp, comes a travel romance that will take you on the adventure of a lifetime.



NYC fashion blogger, Camille Caldwell, gets offered a dream job by her favorite magazine. They’re going to send her on an all-expenses paid eco-trip to Costa Rica. She doesn’t know what that means, but she assumes she’ll wear fabulous clothes, sip PiƱa Coladas on the beach, and have her photo taken “out in nature.” Really, the hardest part of the assignment will be giving up social media while she’s gone.

Going off social media is no big deal for London-based wildlife photographer, Adam Lloyd. The only reason he even has an account is to share his photos with the world. He’s thrilled when an international publication wants to hire him, until he finds out it’s a fashion magazine. He decides to take the job anyway—after all, it will be great for his portfolio. But the minute he sees Camille, he knows it was a mistake. She has too much luggage, is too high maintenance, and way too pretty.
When they meet, their feelings are mutual—they hate each other. Can these two stop fighting long enough to complete their assignment? Will Camille give up and go home when she discovers there’s nowhere to plug in her hair straightener?
Or will they both realize that sometimes you have to go off the grid to find yourself?
Making a difference:
Part of our goal in writing this book is to make a difference. 10% of our profits (20% during release week) from this book will be donated to the Sea Turtle Conservatory. It is the oldest sea turtle research and conservation group. It was founded in 1959 by Dr. Archie Carr. Their headquarters are in Florida, but they have programs worldwide that work to conserve sea turtle populations through education, research, advocacy, and protection of natural habitats. They also have a research station in Tortuguero, Costa Rica, which was one of the places visited in the book. For more information on the Sea Turtle Conservatory, click here.

Quote 



"Life is made up of moments. Moments that define you, change you, and test you. You choose these moments. And I am choosing this moment to let go. Not to overcome my fear, but at least face it head on."
Excerpt


CAMILLE

The sound of a door closing wakes me up. I watch Adam come out of his cabana, walk down the steps, and into the sand. He’s shirtless, wearing just a pair of shorts with a towel thrown over one shoulder. I consider saying something, but don’t. I’m too tired to hold a conversation. 
As I lie my head back on the hammock, I notice out of the corner of my eye that Adam has walked down to the water. 
I wonder what he’s doing when all of a sudden he starts stripping off his shorts. 
Oh, my gosh! 
Before I can look away, his shorts hit the sand, revealing his naked backside. I need to get out of here. If he sees me he’ll think I was spying on him, or worse—checking him out. But somehow I get tangled up in the stupid hammock and flip myself right into the sand, landing with a thud.
He turns toward the noise, but thankfully it is dark, and I don’t think he can see me. 
Actually, I know he can’t see me, because if he did, he’d totally come up here and give me crap. 
I flatten myself into the sand and don’t move. Adam finally turns back toward the ocean and dives out into the water. While he’s swimming, I army crawl as quickly and quietly as possible back to my cabana. When I get to the stairs, I stand up which causes them to creak. Crap! I drop to the ground again, squatting low and hiding behind the porch rail. Then I stand fully, dart inside, and move to the window. I slide the little curtain out of the way and peek through. 
I can barely make out Adam’s form floating lazily in the dark water. And I can’t help but think about how he’s out there naked.
I throw myself dramatically on the bed, realizing too late that I’m covered in sand. I go into the bathroom, take off my clothes, shake them out, and then put on my pajamas. 
I brush the sand off my sheets and try to go to sleep, but I can’t. So I grab my video camera and do my video blog for today. 
“It’s day two in Costa Rica. Today was truly amazing, and I wish all my Effortless Girls were here experiencing it alongside me. Actually, that’s a lie. Honestly, I’m really homesick.” A tear escapes my eye. “And I don’t mean to sound crazy, but I have no one here to talk to and all I can think about is calling home. I know, pretty pathetic, right? It’s just hard when you feel out of place. I wish Adam, my photographer, who is pretty nice when he’s not annoying, wasn’t such a pain. He thinks he knows everything about everything. Well, he sort of does. I mean, I spent a lot of time doing research for this trip but nothing compares to the real thing. And Adam, yes, that’s his name, like from the bible. And it kind of fits, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Get it? Adam and Eve, the apple?” I let out a maniacal laugh. “It’s quite possible I am a little delirious from lack of sleep. What I mean is that Adam’s dad is a world-renowned photographer, and Adam is following in his footsteps. He’s actually lived a pretty interesting life. Much different than me growing up on the Upper West Side of New York. His mom is an anthropologist and Adam has lived with indigenous people before, so he was actually a good fit for this trip.
“And speaking of the do-gooder, this morning when I jumped into the shower I was shocked to discover there was no hot water. Of course, Adam ran into my room when I screamed. Thank goodness I was able to mostly cover myself up with a towel that was barely bigger than a hand towel. And guess what he’s out doing right now? He’s swimming naked in the ocean! And that’s really why I can’t sleep. Who could sleep with that going on?” I hear the sound of Adam softly whistling a tune from outside. “Crap. I have to go! He’s back and I don’t want him to know I know he was out there! Bye!”

Until It Fades by KA Tucker • FMR REVIEW



BLURB

Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania: population two thousand outside of tourist season.

And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed attempt at a relationship, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has saved: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.

Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works.

For a time.

But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. What begins as an immediate friendship quickly turns into something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something that Catherine is afraid to trust.

Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine…before the spark fades?

Review by: Flavia


I love books about single parents, and this one I loved loved loved. I haven't read a K.A Tucker book in so long, and when I read this book, I was reminded on why I loved her books.

Catherine Wright is a truck stop waitress and a single mother of a little girl. She is also not any ordinary waitress. Cath has a reputation in the town of Balsam. And everyone knows who she is. One wrong decision when she was younger and now its like she can't move forward with her life and it seems that she is doomed to forever being the girl that supposedly 'ruined' someone else's life. But no one knows the real story and no one will ever. Out on a Blind date on the way home she comes upon a crash and does what any other person would do, she stops and helps the man out of the car before it goes up in flames. What she doesn't know is that the man she saves is Hockey star Brett Maden.

Brett is in the time of his life, on the way to greatness. But on the way home from a game he and his friend has a car accident and that is how he meets Catherine Wright. Brett has never met anyone like Catherine, someone doing something just because they are being nice and not wanting anything in return.

All Catherine wants is for her life to go back to normal before she saved Brett, all the media and hype she is not use to and she is scared of her past coming back and reminding people of the person she use to be.
But all Brett wants is her, he is fascinated with her from the moment they met, but will he be able to make Catherine see that it's not just her saving his life that makes him want her. It's the caring, sweet and sexy women that she is.

“I wake up every morning thinking about you.” My head thumps softly against the wall as I close my eyes, reveling in the feel of his mouth against my ear. “I go to bed at night thinking about you.” Blood rushes through my veins with the adrenaline his words create. “Please tell me it’s not just me.” 

I loved this story, its about a girl who believed in love and then her heart was crushed and now years later she has a chance of getting back the life that she wanted. But will she be able to let go of her trust issues in men and let go of the past hurt to move forward and get her fairytale. You will fall in love with Brett and Catherine as well as Brenna and the rest of the characters. An easy 5 stars for me.

Blurb:

Asher Kilby is a mechanic who’s dream is to have his own garage. He’s fiercely protective, sexy, and getting dirty doesn’t just happen in the garage.
Payton Hudson comes to work at her dad’s garage after moving across the country. She’s beautiful, captivating, and holding a world of secrets.
When these two meet there’s an instant attraction that can’t be denied. Even though Asher tries to stay away, because the boss’s daughter is off limits, it doesn’t happen. He knows what he wants, and it’s Payton.
Feelings start to get involved. Sex becomes all consuming. Emotions are extreme.
When everything they thought they knew falls apart. One may be relieved. The other completely wrecked.

Review by: Flavia 

My first book from this author and I have to tell you I was surprised.

Asher is a manwhore who's life consists of working as a mechanic, partying and drinking and hooking up.
So when he meets Payton he was totally thrown, as she was completely different to his usual hookups. And she is the boss's daughter and that alone should be throwing up warning lights. But the attraction between them can't make him stay away from her.
But when feelings and sex are involved things tend to get complicated and secrets has a way of coming out and Payton has those in spades. So will Asher be able to hang on and endure or will he regret getting involved.

The chemistry between these two will keep you reading until the end of the book and will make you want more of Asher and Payton. The author will drag you in from page 1 and will keep you hooked.
Will definitely be wanting more of this author

Review by: Erin 

This story took me on an incredible journey, following several different storylines that merge together to create an amazing book. Just when you think you know which direction the story is going to take, a twist comes along and throws your mind in a whirlwind, trying to figure out how you didn't see it coming. Jag and Roxy are wonderful, very well developed characters and you will find yourself hanging on every word of their story.


4 Stars 







 RUSH





 Sex is all I need. I don’t need love.
I’m Rush Wilder, bassist of Pandemic Sorrow, which means I can practically have any woman I want—except Jules. She’s off limits because she’s part of that industry that owns my ass. And that’s fine, because I’m a rocker through and through. Girls that will never have me for more than one night. Wild parties. Tours. . .and Jules always in the back of my mind.
Sex was all I had. And she made me think maybe rock stars do need someone to love after all

Review by: Erin 


This was a wonderful story that had me on an emotional roller coaster. I loved the look back on Roxy's childhood and digging deeper into her unconventional upbringing. Roxy's character took me to a whole new appreciation for others and realizing you really never know where people came from. This book blew me away.



4 Stars 







 ROXY

 

 When you don't want to hurt having the ability to be numb is your best defense mechanism. And for a long time all I was doing was existing.
I thought Jag Steele was arrogant and entitled, the standard dick of a rock star. Funny thing is, people aren't always who you expect them to be. Never in a million years would I have thought the night I meet Jag would hold any significance, but it did.

I found out that sometimes something that screams utter destruction might actually be your saving grace.

Some people may say our story was too screwed up to be a romance, but for two broken people, we made the pieces fit together perfectly.

Review by: Erin 

Another incredible, emotional book in this series. Rush and Jules kept me hooked in their "will they won't they" relationship. I loved every minute of their story. The back and forth, the taunts and quips. These two had me crying one minute and laughing the next. I also loved how their story went back and followed the same timeline as Jag and Roxy. Allowed for their perspective on events that happened. Everyone could use a dose of these rockers!

DEAR BRIDGET, I WANT YOU by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland • COVER REVEAL

We are excited to bring you the next cover from New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland.

DEAR BRIDGET, I WANT YOU is the next standalone Contemporary Romance Novel from this sensational duo releasing on September 18, 2017!

   
Model: Philip Van den Hoogenband – Chadwick Models Melbourne
Photographer: Brian Jamie
Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA Designs
      Dear Bridget, I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. So, here goes. We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England. But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. I want you. The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke. So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime. No questions asked. Think about it. Or don’t. Whatever you choose. It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway. --Simon

MHDRStrongEnoughBookCover5x8_BW_350

Strong Enough

by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov

Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

Publication Date: June 19, 2017

I wasn’t looking for Derek Wolfe.
I wasn’t looking for anybody. All I wanted was to start a new life in America. But when I found myself stranded here with no place to go, he came to my rescue, offering me a place to stay.
He’s smart, successful, and sexy as hell—I can barely sleep knowing he’s right down the hall. And when the chemistry between us explodes one night with fierce, fiery passion, it’s hard to deny there’s something real between us.
But he does.
He says he was drunk. He says it was a one-time thing. He says he’s not into guys and what we did meant nothing.
He’s lying. Because it happened again, and again, and again. And it’s better every time.
I know we could be good together, and I want the chance to try, but I’m done hiding. If he’s not strong enough to admit the truth, I’ll have to be strong enough to walk away.

Excerpt:

Figuring I’d had enough booze to blunt his effect on me, I rolled up the sleeves of my black button-down shirt and moved next to him. “I’ll help you.” “Okay.” I caught him trying to not to look at my wrists and forearms, and it made me smile. How does it feel to want someone and have to hide it? “You wash, I’ll dry?” “Sounds good.” We worked in silence, shoulder to shoulder, and I found myself increasingly—and disturbingly—pleased at the thought of him being attracted to me and being forced to conceal it. It was fucking horrible of me to take pleasure in his discomfort, but I liked being secretly wanted. Being illicitly desired. Being the object of his covert glances and maybe even his darkest, dirtiest thoughts. I let our arms touch more than necessary, as thrilled by the physical contact as I was by the thought of what it might be doing to him. For there is no man who does not sin. My dick started to get hard, clearly unbothered by the whiskey that was breaking down my inhibitions, pushing past all my defenses, and letting my imagination run wild. What’s in that gorgeous head of yours, Maxim? What’s behind those cobalt eyes? What would you do to me, if I let you? What would you let me do to you? “Carolyn is so nice,” he said, handing me the last serving dish left to be dried. What? He was thinking about Carolyn right now? He wasn’t supposed to be thinking about Carolyn—I was, goddammit! But I wasn’t. “Yeah.” He turned off the water. Rested his wet hands on the edge of the sink. “I didn’t realize you had a girlfriend.” And I heard it in his voice—the slightest edge of jealousy, so faint I might never have noticed it had I not been so hyperaware of everything about him right now. I fucking loved it. “She’s not my girlfriend.” “Oh.” Now there was confusion. “I guess I misunderstood.” “She wants to be my girlfriend.” Silence. Of course there was silence. Maxim would never ask what the problem was. But I wanted to tell him. I wanted him to know. I wanted to share the impossible longing I felt with one person who might understand it. “The problem is me.” He was completely still. Before I could stop myself, I covered his right hand with my left. “Sometimes I don’t know what I want.” He yanked his hand from beneath mine and we faced each other. For the first time tonight, I looked him right in the eye. Nothing around us existed for me anymore. I heard only his breath. Smelled only his skin. Saw only his guarded expression. I had to have him.

Review by: Erin 

I am a big fan of Marquita Valentine's. Her books always keep me thoroughly engaged and this one was no different. This storyline was different than any of her others that I have read. The characters were very well developed and pulled me into their lives easily. I loved seeing them grow and develop in their relationship. There were several main supporting characters and I would love to see them get their own stories.
