#CoverReveal Give Me Yesterday by @AuthorElleC & @KristiWebster




High powered divorce lawyer, Victoria Larkin, is known as the ice queen. Tough. Emotionless. What they don’t know, is that ten years ago, she lost everything. Including her hope for the future.

Chase Monroe struggles with his own demons. Devastated by guilt and on a mission to correct his past, he uses his skills as a college psychology professor to help others move beyond their grief.

When Victoria is forced to attend grief counselling, she meets Chase, and there is an instant attraction. Chase is determined to help her confront her past and find happiness. Victoria is afraid to relive her pain.

Just as they begin to step forward, tragedy strikes and throws them backwards, and they find themselves, once again, shackled to the past.

Can Chase and Victoria find the path to a happy future together? Or will they forever be wishing for yesterday?

Clack. Clack. Clack.
        The angry clicks of high heels on linoleum thunders through the buzz of voices in the room, alerting me of our newest arrival before she even emerges from the hallway.  I check off her name on my list and fold the paper, tucking it into the back pocket of my jeans.  Lifting my eyes to the doorway, I await the notorious Victoria Larkin.
        I’m not sure what I’m expecting.
        Maybe a monster with bright red claws.
        Perhaps a manlike woman with bulging muscles and a bowl cut.
        What I don’t expect is a gorgeous, angry angel.
        A blonde, blue-eyed woman, despite it being a casual, Saturday afternoon, fills the doorway with her fierce presence and perfectly styled hair.  Whereas everyone else, including me, is wearing jeans and T-shirts, she’s overdressed and out of place in her white silky, long-sleeved shirt that’s tucked into her crisp, black pants.  Her lips are blood red, as if she snacked on the ducks that live on the pond behind the community center before arriving and match her glossy, spiked heels.
        Her nostrils flare in resentment as she surveys the room.  Disdain paints her features as she makes quick work of eyeing up everyone in the room, clearly judging them before she meets them.  I’m sure Bill seems like a dirty old man flirting with sweet Glenda.  And Nate, probably appears to be some goofy goon as he guffaws at a joke Claudia tells him.
        The way she lifts her nose in the air in a haughty manner has me bristling with irritation.  What she doesn’t see is Bill, the man that used to cry at every session over the loss of his wife of twenty-three years, is finally beginning to smile and test the dating waters after three years since her death.
        What she doesn’t see is Nate, a single father of three, who despite his laughter, aches for the loss of his wife Cindy in Afghanistan.  He struggles each day to be mom and dad to his little girls.
        What she doesn’t see is me, a psychology professor that teaches about the five stages of grief, but most days, I'm fighting depression and the self-loathing that threatens to swallow me up.
        She may be sexy as hell—rockin’ the whole naughty librarian look—but her insolence grates on my nerves.  Her holier-than-though attitude leaves a sour taste in my mouth and a desire to defend every single one of my friends to her.
        When her sapphire eyes meet mine, relief washes over her features and I sit up to face the woman head on.  She ignores the diarrhea promised cookies Glenda offers and stalks over to me.  With each step, I admire the way her full tits bounce with the fabric.  She may be a bitch, but she’s a hot one.
 Instead of introducing herself, she sits on the chair beside me and clasps her hands in her lap, lifting her chin high in the air.  I watch with interest as she then glances at the time on her expensive watch and huffs.
        “Jesus, I swear.  People have no respect for other’s time.  Time is money,” she gripes.  “When a meeting begins at three, I expect it to begin at three.  Not three-oh-five.”
        I raise a dark brow at her and steal a glance at the clock on the wall that reads one minute till three.
        “Bastards,” I agree, with a chuckle.  “Some of us have shit to do.”

Fates Divided by Jules Barnard Halven Rising #1 Publication Date: August 31, 2015 Genres: Contemporary, Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance

Tour: Fates Divided by Jules Barnard

Elena Rosales has busted her ass to get into a good college. She’s the only one in her family ever to attend, and expectations are high. No pressure. But Elena’s got this one in the bag, because she’s as dependable as the molecules she studies, as reliable as the chemical reactions that comfort her in their predictability. Until they don’t.
Elena has always wondered why her mother abandoned her on her first birthday. It’s not until she turns eighteen and her chemistry experiments go berserk that she learns the truth: Her mother wasn’t human, and the Fae are willing to harm those Elena loves if she doesn’t use her power over the elements to cure them of a deadly disease. Derek, Elena’s brooding neighbor, isn’t the friendliest guy, but he has access to an off-hours lab and is willing to help Elena create the antivirus. He has his own secrets to keep, and this business Elena is mixed up in could blow his cover. But when Elena and Derek get together, more than chemicals spark fire-and they soon discover just how complicated attraction can get when they find themselves on the other side of the portal, fighting for survival. Lives collide, and allegiance and love are tested, in Fates Divided.

Review- 3.5 Stars

Fates Divided was a pleasurable read. It took me a while to get into it. There were times where things seemed to drag out. I felt that the characters were a little naive for making huge sacrifices without having all the facts.

However as the story started to unwrap things got interesting. The race against time starts as the chemistry between Elena and Derek starts to fizzle. Everything that they know is questioned. Through time they learn that the things that make them different can be sculpted into incredible talents.

This novel takes you on an adventure of new worlds, uncharted territory, danger, and romance.

Will Elena beat the clock and save those that she care about? Or will unexpected enemies stop her?

I loved Derek. There was just something about his sweet yet dominate nature that just drew me in. I connected with him more than any other character in the book. My heart broke for him a few times. I could feel the anguish as things became out of his control.

At around 70% I was so wrapped up in the book that I was kind of disappointed when it ended. But I LOVED the ending. Everything worked out the way that I had hoped for.

3.5 Fae Stars!

#Review #Giveaway Discovering Delilah & Catching Cassidy by @Melissa_Foster

Displaying DiscoveringDelilah_FINAL-266x400.jpg

Discovering Delilah Synopsis:

After the death of her parents on the day of her college graduation, Delilah Armstrong thought she could finally follow her heart and come out to her closest friends, but the guilt of going against her parents’ beliefs haunts her. The feelings she has for her best friend, Ashley, are stronger than anything she’s felt before, but Delilah has never even kissed a girl, and fear stops her at every turn.

Ashley Carver promised herself that she would never again date another girl who wasn’t out, but that was before she met intoxicatingly sweet and sexy Delilah.

When another girl offers to teach Delilah the ropes, it changes Delilah’s whole world and gives her the courage to go after the only girl she really wants. But coming out isn’t as easy as Delilah imagined, and moving past her parents’ death and the feelings of guilt she is left with is even harder. The intense passion between Ashley and Delilah is too strong to deny, but coming together means risking everything.

Discovering Delilah is an edgy, evocative, romantic story of friendship, family, and the courage to love.

Review - Discovering Delilah - 4 Stars

I couldn't contain my excitement when this book showed up on my kindle. I had been waiting for this since I heard about it! And I definitely wasn't disappointed.
It was refreshing for me to read a lesbian romance. I'm a big advocate in the LBGTQ Community and, for me, it’s a big step to see this theme in other genres besides erotica. The way it was written felt realstic and I was completely enamored by the characters. There wasn't a moment where I missed having a book boyfriend to read about. I loved being able to have two book girlfriends and to see their story unfold. It's unique too, you know, to read about to lives being so strongly impacted by their love but for so many different reasons than you normally read about.
I devoured this. And when I wasn't reading it I was thinking about it. I could picture Ashley and Delilah in my head so clearly, too which for me is no easy feat.
So much respect goes out to Melissa Foster for writing such a realistic, beautiful. And captivating romance.

Displaying Cassidy teaser 1.jpg
About Catching Cassidy (Harborside Nights, bk1)

Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents.  Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to deal with his parents’ death and to try to figure out his next step.

Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands—but that’s what best friends are for, isn’t it? Having each other’s backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family’s summer home—but she never expected to begin seeing Wyatt as more than a friend. Or has she been ignoring her feelings all along?

It’s impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt’s past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn’t want to lose the one woman who’s shared his past and owns his heart.


Review- Catching Cassidy - 5 Stars

I am in love with this new series and all the characters in it. I grew to love Wyatt and Cassidy in this one, even though Wyatt was a playboy at first. The way that Melissa writes is so enthralling that you never want to put the book down. I can never get enough of Melissa's books. 

Wyatt and Delilah are friends with Cassidy and have been their whole lives. Growing up, Cassidy felt like their mom was more of a mom to her than her own. When an unfortunate tragedy strikes Wyatt and Delilah, Cassidy feels the pain just as much as they do. Cassidy wants to be there for Wyatt and Delilah because they are so close, but strong feelings for Wyatt leave Cassidy questioning what is going on in their relationship. Cassidy and Wyatt both feel the pull towards each other and wonder why these feelings are coming out now and never have before. 

Cassidy helps Wyatt at their families bar and when feelings that are too strong for either one of them to ignore surface again, they both realize that it is time for them to talk through what they want to do as far as a relationship goes. I love the way that Wyatt values the friendship that he and Cassidy have. Wyatt makes sure that both he and Cassidy are sure about a relationship beyond friendship before they pursue anything further.

With a looming decision for Cassidy to make with the job offer in NY, my heart was breaking for her to have to choose between the job and Wyatt. I am so glad that she made the decision that she did. (Not going to give it away.) This story does have a happy ending for these two and I can't wait to see if we see more of them and what becomes of their relationship in the next books in the series. This story just flowed so freely and I loved it!!

Review - 4 Stars
I have loved the books in this series. I fall in love with each fighter and each of the women who belong with them. Stack and Vanity had me hooked in the last book, Holding Strong, so I couldn’t not gobble up this story. You don’t need to read any of the previous books, to get the full experience with Tough Love, however, it does add to the fun a little bit. Just as getting to know the characters for the next book in this one, will make it impossible to miss their story.
            Stack and Vanity are an explosion just waiting to happen. And when it does…oh my. I thought I was going to be engulfed in the flames! The sexual tension between them is practically foreplay, and sometimes that can build the event up so much that when it finally happens, it doesn’t live up to it. That is definitely not the case here. Scorching! There is also humor in their relationship and I loved that too.
            Stack has a complicated family life and it unfolded in a way that came as a bit of a surprise. The strain between him and his family is what you see in the beginning and I wasn’t expecting to like them. So, it was interesting to find out that his parents had a solid, affectionate marriage and that his childhood was pretty normal. His sister is a mess, but he remains close with her and his mother, even through all of the familial tension and differences of opinion. I fell in love with him over and over, the sweet, alpha fighter who doesn’t expect to be hit over the head by Cupid.
            Vanity is all alone in the world, and yet, losing her family doesn’t make as much of a difference in her life, because she never really had them in the first place. Little by little we uncover the mysteries behind Vanity and with every new facet I learned, the more I liked her. It’s easy to see what Stack would fall for beyond her looks.
            As always, the secondary characters have as much personality as the starring hero and heroine. They add so much to the story, shaping it and giving it depth. They create a community around Stack and Vanity that keeps you even more engaged and interested in what is and will be happening with these them as well.
            There is an element of suspense to this book, as there is in each of the books in the series. It heightens the story even though the focus is on the relationship between Stack and Vanity. The plot moved the story and therefore, their relationship forward. I will say though, it almost moved a little too fast. Not the relationship, the suspenseful plot. I would have enjoyed seeing it build a little more, and in the end, I felt like it tied up a little too quickly.
            The POV pops around just a little bit, not always from Stack or Vanity’s outlook, this wouldn’t bother me if it were only one other, such as the antagonist, however I wasn’t a fan of the 3 or 4 multiple POVs it jumped into from time to time.
            Overall, I really enjoyed the book. I love Lori Foster’s characters, they have me wishing I knew them in real life. I am certainly hooked on the series and will be waiting impatiently for Armie and Merissa’s story. I highly recommend Tough Love, and all of the other books in this series. You won’t want to miss Stack and Vanity, they are a loveable, smoking hot, couple with an great story to tell!
