Welcome To Sugartown (Sugartown #1) By Carmen Jenner Blog Tour

Welcome to Sugartown (Sugartown, #1)
 
Ana Belle never wanted anything more than to hang up her apron, jump on her Vespa and ride off into the sunset, leaving Sugartown in the dust.

Elijah Cade never wanted anything more than a hot meal, a side of hot arse and a soft place to lay his head at night where he could forget about his past.

But you know what they say about wanting: you always want what you can’t have.

Nineteen year-old virgin Ana is about to discover that’s not quite true because a six foot three, hotter than hell, tattooed, Aussie sex god just rode into town. He’s had a taste of her pie and he wants more– no really, Ana bakes pies for a living, get your mind out of the gutter.

She’d be willing to hand over everything tied up in a big red bow, there’s just one problem; Elijah has secrets dirtier than last week’s underwear. Secrets that won't just break Ana’s heart, but put her life at risk, too. When those secrets come to light, their relationship is pushed to breaking point.

Add to that a psychotic nympho best friend, an overbearing father, a cuter than humanly possible kid brother, a wanton womanizing cousin, the ex from hell, and more pies than you could poke a ... err ... stick ... at.

And you thought small towns were boring.

********
 
After seeing this cover to the book I could NOT wait to see what it was a bout, and I promise you for those who haven't read this. It was definitely worth the wait.
 
Ana Belle, she's 19 yrs old and works and runs the pie shop after he mother passed away. She's tired of the same ols every day of her life and wants more out of it. Just so happens a man rides into Sugartown to flip Ana's world upside down.
 
Elijah Cade, oh man do I have a sweet spot for a man on a bike with tattoos. Sigh** Every one of my wet panty dreams book boyfriend. HE's just left his old life and is starting a new job at Ana's dads shop working as a mechanic.
 
Elijah wants Ana, but ana's dad isn't playing that shit. Lol. But, what can you do when the one thing you really want wants you back just as much?
 
I loved this book, it kept me laughing, hot, and wanting to keep reading more. The relationship development between the good little virgin and the hot biker made it so much more heavy. The sex scenes are steamy to the point of my favorite pass time of re-reading the pages again. YES! But, as always their are secrets of the past that seem to creep up at the worst times ever. And, alas we get swept into the past and what this means for the future.
 
4 STARS!

The Truth About Us By T.J. Hannah Blog Tour

The Truth About Us (Mills Lake, #1)
 
Twenty-one-year-old Sophia Ross has lived under the pressure of her parents expectations since the tragic accident that shattered their once perfect family. Determined to start over where no one knows her, she answers a housing ad on Craigslist and takes a job at a little bar in a town she has never heard of. All Sophia's looking for is a place to escape, somewhere she can hide behind her lies and keep herself distracted.

She just didn’t expect to be distracted by Corbin Kasey.

Twenty-five-year-old Corbin Kasey is stuck in his hometown, his job, and his life, spending more time covering for his Dad’s problems than trying to fix his own. To take his mind off everything he has the wild Kayla, his stable roommates, and the calmness of swimming in Mills Lake. He always thought it was enough to keep him from drowning in himself, until he meets Sophia.

Neither of them are prepared for their lies to be stripped away by a single kiss. But for Corbin and Sophia, the truth has consequences.

When I did this cover reveal I automatically wanted to see what this story was about. And with that lets go....
 
Sophia Ross, is what I would call sheltered to an extent and damaged. but, after finding out why she is this way I could completely understand. She runs away from the life that's set in stone for her and embarks on discovering how to deal with life after the one she always had failed her. She gets a job at a bar where she has absolutely no experience and makes friends that change her in ways she didn't see coming. After an unlikely friendship with the manager of her job they start a relationship.
 
Corbin Kasey, he's a no attachment which means no commitment kind of guy. I loved him, but he has had his own hell to live with. His father is abusive and a drunk and he deals with whatever punches (literally) thrown at him. I didn't understand why a grown ass man would still let his father dictate his life, but I was proud of him when push came to shove and he stood his ground. He finds himself attracted and drawn to Sophia like nothing he's ever felt before. He starts their friendship slowly and takes a ride on what he didn't know could ever exist.
 
Sophia and Corbin heal each other and have the kind of relationship that gets you out of your own head for a minute to sit back and take notice on what has become their lives. I didn't like how they started because that could of caused some serious hurt on both parts, but when they feel free enough to open up about secrets and their pasts it was a loving discovery.

Have I Told You By F.L. Jacob Blog Tour

Have I Told You

Caston Black has it all, according to the outside world. The owner of the best-selling gentlemen’s magazine, Black Hollywood, has good looks, fame, fortune, and a reputation that precedes him. He can have any woman he wants, as long as he doesn’t keep them. Caston sets his sights on Sabrina for his next Hollywood Sweetheart. Little does he know he will find the woman to share his life, the one he is meant to keep forever.

Sabrina Bennett has been in a mentally and physically abusive relationship that has destroyed the beautiful, confident dancer who arrived at college three years ago. She thinks the only good thing left in her life is her abusive boyfriend. Keeping her boyfriend happy is her number one priority, no matter how impossible. She’s been broken and molded into a frightened, unsure girl desperate to be worthy of love.

Meeting by chance one evening, sparks fly between Caston and Sabrina. Neither expected the feelings they bring out in each other. Trying to have a normal relationship in their abnormal world is almost impossible, happiness is a new way of life for the lovers. They want to move forward, but the past won’t let go.


Can Caston help Sabrina heal from her past abuse? Can Sabrina show Caston he is as strong as he appears to be? When is the price of love too much? What do you do when the biggest threat to the person you love is you?
 
********
 
There was a lot in this book that quite literally shocked me and I found myself wanting to cry for reasons that are too wrong and other reasons for being in love with the relationship the two leading characters give you. Ok ok enough waiting....
 
Caston Black is a major ladies man, his lifestyle leads you to automatically know that this man screams sex! From the magazine he ruins, to his private business, to his past relationships, there is nothing confusing about seeing what you get. But, when he see's Sabrina for the first time, it's like everything changes. What he thought was going to be the rest of his life is thrown to the way side, because this beauty just stole his heart.
 
Sabrina Bennett, is a dancer on a scholarship and in a relationship and her Boyfriend is NOT as things you read about that he does to her in Sabrina's flashbacks are what nightmares are made of. I wanted to jump through the book and tare his ass up for the shit he had pulled on her without any remorse. he broke her and left her nothing but a shell of the girl she once was. But, at a party one night when he takes it too far Caston is there to hold her and take of her afterwards.
 
Caston and Sabrina's relationship takes off from the start, and honestly I didn't mind at all. F.L. Jacob did an amazing job keeping me interested. From the fights, to the lies, to the media, to Caston's family being a problem, I never once was bored. And OH NO NO NO you will NOT miss any of the lust/love/sex in this book, you get it all, in a very hot little package.
 
The ending to this book left my jaw dropping open! I couldn't believe it was just over like that after such a happy occasion! OHHHH, how I want the next book so bad! Amazing!
 
4.5 STARS!!

He set my hand on his thigh and returned his hands to the steering wheel.  Feeling very brazen, I decided to move my hand up his leg.  Coming into contact with his hardening length, I tightened my grip.  His breath caught in the back of his throat and he stretched his neck.  I unzipped his pants and slid my hand in, touching him skin to skin.  Pulling him free, I slowly scooted over to take him in my mouth.  The groan he let out was magnificent, and made me take him to the back of my throat.  Working my tongue up and down I could taste his salty precum, I sucked harder.  I wanted to taste more. 
 
Suddenly, he pulled the car into the back of a gas station.  I moved my mouth faster, and he growled, as his fingers tangled in my hair.  The pleasure I was giving him made me smile around his cock.

The Perfect Distraction (The Perfect Distraction #1) By Melissa Rolka Blog Tour

The Perfect Distraction (The Perfect Series, Book 1)
 
When Katherine “Kate” leaves for her freshmen year at college, a grounded and stable piece of her is missing. She pushes away the ghosts of her past, determined to start her college life single, carefree and distracted.
Throughout high school Kate was reserved and shy, with little experience. Now, on her own, with little holding her back, Kate is ready to branch out. She bonds with a tight knit group of friends and even starts casually dating. What starts out as innocent flirting on the tennis courts slowly turns into a friendship and eventually something more complex. Reed comes into her life giving her the distraction she craves more than anything; but is she ready to give her heart away so easily?
Things get complicated when Kate’s ex-boyfriend and first love continues to pursue her. Kyle deeply regrets breaking her heart when he left for college the year before and is now on a mission to reclaim her. Kyle’s persistence and relentlessness is nothing short of obsessive. He will stop at nothing to win her back and prove his love.
Kate finds herself torn between her past and the unknown of the future. Her determination to stay distracted may just be her downfall or the beginning of something new and wonderful.
 
********
 
Ok, i'm all for college romance, but the crazy of this story completely pulls you in and just keeps getting better.
 
The beginning has Kyle's POV, he's Kate's ex and from what I gathered a douche for dumping her. Kate is obviously a looker and he just wanted the full college dating "experience" now all of a sudden he wants Kate back. Hell to the no.
 
Kate is a great girl, but is looking for just about anything to distract her from what has become her life. Not in any kind of destructive way, but healthy ones that lead to great time anyways. When she meets sexy ass player Reed you can feel it in your bones how these two connect. I wanted to just jump right into these scenes between the two of them.
 
Melissa did amazing, and you are left hanging off the edge of seat with the bomb that is dropped on you in the end. I loved her writing and just wanted to keep going, but alas I shall have to wait along with everyone else for what is surely to be just another roller coaster of my heart breaking yet again. I wouldn't have done this book any other way.
 
4.5 STARS!!

Excerpt:
 
 
Once we reach the bottom of the stairs, I gain my confidence and take his hand leading him to the dance floor. 
“Let’s dance!”  I don’t give him time to respond, nor do I stop to look at his face to see his expression. 
Instantly, Maggie spots me and her eyes light up like a deer in headlights.  I smile and threw my head back as I grab onto Reed.  I start swaying my hips and moving provocatively to Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado.  The look on his face is priceless.
“You don’t fool me, little girl,” he whispers in my ear as he moves my hair to the side.  Goosebumps travel all the way down my neck and down my spine.  Then he moves his hands to my waist and turns me with my back to his front.  This reminds me of last night in my dorm room.  Maggie moves closer and mouths to me “bad girl”.   I throw my head back into the crook of his neck and giggle.
Kelly and Derek are still dancing nearby.  I can’t read the look Derek is giving me, but then I see him gaze at Kelly with amusement.  I think he may be surprised to see me with Reed again.  In this moment I feel at ease and carefree.  I turn back around and quickly become aware that Reed is in a sandwich.  Luckily it is just Quinn dancing behind him and when I look at her she winks at me.  Soon after she is pulled by her hips to Matt’s grinding moves.
The music turns to a slower Cold Play song and Reed pulls me closer to him.  He starts to sway us softly.  I dare myself to look up and when I do his eyes look heated and deeper, almost sapphire.  Nervously, I bite down on my bottom corner of my lip.  Reed runs his hands up to my cheeks and kisses me teasingly slow while lightly sucking on my bottom lip.  It feels so good to be like this with him and I am wishing we were back upstairs in the bathroom or back in his room.  Moving his head into the crook of my neck he plants sweet kisses just under my ear.  As I feel myself getting lost in this moment, I am suddenly broken from it when someone grabs at my shoulder pulling me out of Reed’s arms and turns me around.
With alcohol swimming in me I lose my balance, but I immediately notice the mixed green and hazel eyes that I had once found so loving.  Reed shifts behind me and moves his hands protectively around my waist.  The anxiety I had been feeling earlier quickly consumes me.  I stare in disbelief and fear.
