Dispatches from the Kabul Cafe by Heidi Kingstone ~NEW REVIEW~

Where can you buy 913 Kalashnikovs? How do you tell a friend her expat love is never coming back? What’s it like to date a mercenary? 

In 2007, Canadian journalist Heidi Kingstone arrived in Kabul, eager to uncover the mysteries and shadows of one turbulent corner of the world. Over the next four years, she encountered idealists and chancers, gunrunners and warlords. She interviewed generals and partied with powerbrokers and fashionistas. A passionate advocate for women’s rights, she witnessed women as heroes, as victims, as freeloaders, as rivals. 

Heidi’s account of the last years of ISAF-controlled Kabul is vividly atmospheric, deeply personal and at times shockingly painful. From air bases to brothels, she tells of disastrous development programs and hopeful couplings against the backdrop of our longest war. But as her friends fall victim to ambush, kidnap and suicide bombing, no amount of booze and adrenalin can soften the devastating realities of NATO’s new Afghanistan.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I haven’t been able to read a book in months. I started Dispatches from the Kabul Cafe in hopes that it would help with my research on Kabul… It didn’t help as much as I had hoped but, it was a brilliant read. Thank you, Heidi Kingston, for sharing your incredible experience. I couldn’t put this book down.

If you are like me and read a lot from the romance genre, and are maybe looking for something to cleanse your reading palette, Ms. Kingstone’s memoir of her time in Kabul is an absolutely brilliant read.

Crazy Over You by Daisy Prescott ~NEW REVIEW~

Crazy Over You

Release Date: March 28, 2017

Crazy Over You is a standalone romantic comedy and the second book in the Love with Altitude series. 

My savior isn’t prince charming.
I’m not that lucky.
He’s my worst nightmare.
He’s my one-night stand from two years ago.
And he doesn’t remember me.

What happens on vacation doesn’t always stay on vacation. Especially in a place like Aspen. I moved to the mountains for my dream job. I never expected to run into the man of my dreams. Again.

I never thought I’d see her again.
My Cinderella didn’t leave me a shoe to find her.
Not that I’d need random footwear to recognize her.
Her kiss is something I’ll never forget.

Work hard. Play hard. I’m paid to be a nice guy on the slopes, but what I do in my off time isn’t always about making good choices. That’s the fun of living in a ski town. I stay while the women come and go.

Be sure to check out Next to You, the first Love with Altitude novel in this series of interconnected standalones!

 

 

Crazy Over YouCrazy Over You by Daisy Prescott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t remember the last time I devoured a book in one sitting, but I couldn’t put Crazy Over You down. Thank you, Daisy Prescott, for Jesse and Mara’s story.

I have been in a reading slump for the last 4 month. Every book I start, I end up shelving… Nothing was cutting it for me. Crazy Over You was exactly the kind of story I needed to read. The writing is witty and endearing, and the characters are fun and loveable. Every thing about this story had me wanting more. I can’t forget to mention that this book is chock-full of sexual tension, the kind that had butterflies fluttering around my tummy… These are my favourite kind of stories to read.

Jill Shalvis has been one of my go to authors for years because her books are fun and sexy and now Daisy Prescott has now been added to my go-to list. I can’t wait for more books from the Love with Altitude series.

If you are looking for a light read full of witty characters, a story to make your pulse race and fill your heart – look no further! Crazy Over You is definitely a book you need to read.

**I was gifted a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review**

 

Unforgiven by Ruth Clampett ~Blog Tour~

SBPR-UNFORGIVEN-BT

Unforgiven, an all-new sexy and emotional M/M love story from Ruth Clampett available now!!

UnforgivenFullReveal

Unforgiven by Ruth Clampett
Publication Date: March 9th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Would you live a lie to hold onto the one you love?

Dean and Jason are best friends, like brothers since boyhood, now architecture students and college roommates. They’ve always had each other’s back, but when one walks in on the other with another man, everything changes. How do you explain to your best friend that he’s the one you’ve always wanted, that until now your life has been a lie?

Desperation and shame are two dirty words that run through Jason’s veins. He carries the scars from a wayward priest who stole his innocence and left him shattered. Meanwhile for years he’s watched Dean pursuing woman after woman, as his own heart slowly breaks.

When their world blows apart, they learn the powerful bond between them has more fire than either understood. Can two broken souls find the light in their darkness and come together to make a whole, or will sins of the past be forever unforgiven?

Excerpt

“What started all of this tonight? First I walk in on you having sex with yourself … then you grill me about having sex with Ramon … and then you suggest we have sex.” He rakes his fingers through his hair. “You’re making me crazy, dude. How much did you drink anyway?”

“Enough to loosen up and let my mind go places it normally doesn’t.”

His eyes light up. “I’ll say.”

“Hey, I’m really curious now. Will you let me fuck you? I promise I’ll follow what you want and take it slow.”

“Oh Jesus. Are you serious? So more experimenting, huh?”

“I think it’ll help me understand more about you.”

“You know when I said I needed more, this isn’t exactly what I meant. Don’t get me wrong, the idea of you fucking me is making me hard as hell, but it’ll just complicate things even more.”

“It doesn’t have to complicate things. Is it really so crazy to just want to make each other feel good?” I pause for a moment. “Come on, JJ.”

Lifting myself off the bed, I slowly approach him. As I get closer, I press my naked body into him so he’s up against the doorjamb, then I boldly rub my palm over his hard cock that’s trapped in his pajama bottoms.

I take a sharp breath because I’m shocked I’m even suggesting fucking my best friend. This is crazy, but feeling myself against him and imagining him naked under me is turning me on like a rocket with a sparking fuse.

He stands frozen, every part of him perfectly still, and then he gasps for air. “Please, Dean, please tell me you aren’t toying with me.”

I press my face into his neck. “I’m not toying with you, man. I don’t know what’s happening to me, but I have all these confusing feelings and my curiosity is through the roof. I’ve been so damn restless lately, and suddenly I have a feeling that if I turn a corner, I might find myself right where I need to be.”

Jason slides his arm along my lower back and curves his fingers around my side, then pulls me closer. “Don’t make me hope for something, and then crush me. I wouldn’t be able to take it. Our friendship means everything to me. It’s why I’m still standing and fighting for a future, when for a long time I wasn’t sure if I deserved one.”

I pull my head back so we can be face to face. It guts me to see so much pain in his eyes. Why the hell didn’t I see all of this before? He’s my best friend, dammit. I should have known he was hurting.

He shakes his head. “I can’t lose you, Dean. I can’t. Tread carefully, man.” His eyes are glazed like he’s fighting back tears.

I take his hand and guide him into my room. “You aren’t going to lose me. Maybe this whole thing of me learning your secrets happened to bring us closer.”

“I want that,” he whispers, and then more softly he murmurs, “I want you.”

Crazy Over You by Daisy Prescott ~Cover Reveal~

Release Date: March 28, 2017

Daisy Prescott released the beautiful new cover for Crazy Over You, her soon to be released romantic comedy from her new Love with Altitude series.

Can’t wait to dive into this book!

 

~Posted by Daisy Prescott’s~

A blizzard is the perfect time to reveal the beautiful, wintery cover of Crazy Over You, a new second chance Romantic Comedy set at high altitude in the small town of Aspen.

I love this amazing cover by Author S M Lumetta! She nailed the look and feeling I wanted. <3

This is the official launch of my new series, Love with Altitude. I’m branching out to a new setting, but these books will have the same banter, humor, heart, and small town setting you’ve come to know in my other series. Only at high altitude! Next to You, featuring Stan the Man Bun, is now Book One in the new series of standalone Rom Coms.

I love this new series. And a big part of that is because it was inspired by you, my dear readers.

In 2015 I asked my reader group who they’d like to see in a short story for the LOL3 anthology. You voted for Ben and Jo from We Were Here and Geoducks. The winter theme of LOL3 inspired me to set the story in Aspen. If you haven’t read it, a hot, South African man-bun sporting man named Stan flirts with Jo.

Even though he was only in the story for about 2000 words, readers loved him and asked for his book. What? Stan? The bartender/model/rugby player? The guy with the man bun?

I did another poll in my reader group about what projects people wanted next from me. Guess who won? Stan the Man Bun. Readers loved him. So I wrote Next to You.

You asked for more and I love making my readers happy. Thank you for encouraging me and inspiring me! I always say I have the best readers in the world! <3

And here we are… a whole new interconnected standalone series! Love with Altitude will have four books:

Next to You
Crazy Over You
Wild for You
Up to You

I hope you love Crazy Over You as much as I do. It’s fun, silly and full of heart. Mara Keiley and Jesse Hayes are two of my favorite characters.

BOOK BLURB:

My savior isn’t prince charming.
I’m not that lucky.
He’s my worst nightmare.
He’s my one night stand from two years ago.
And he doesn’t remember me.

What happens on vacation doesn’t always stay on vacation. Especially in a place like Aspen. I moved to the mountains for my dream vet job. I never expected to run into the man of my dreams. Again.

I never thought I’d see her again.
My Cinderella didn’t leave me a shoe to find her.
Not that I’d need random footwear to recognize her.
Her kiss is something I’ll never forget.

Work hard. Play hard. I’m paid to be a nice guy on the slopes, but what I do in my off time isn’t always about making good choices. That’s the fun of living in a ski town. I stay while the women come and go.

Crazy Over You is a standalone second chance romantic comedy.

Missionary Position by Daisy Prescott – New Look and New Title

 

Daisy Prescott has made some changes to her 2014 release, Missionary Position.  LOVING the new brand new cover and title, Wanderlust <3

Please read the below post shared by Ms Prescott on social media.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi lovely readers,

The first thing you’re probably asking is if this is a new book. It’s not. It’s the same book as Missionary Position with a new title and cover.

Why the change?

While the Missionary Position title works for Selah’s love story (and makes us both giggle), it might give readers the wrong idea. Wanderlust is one of my favorite words and better captures the romance between Kai and Selah set on three continents. Because of the sexual implications of the title, MP keeps being put in the erotica dungeon on retailers despite being more of a rom com (again, giggles about this from both Selah and me).

Plus, Missionary Position is also the title of a Mother Teresa biography, and well, that’s kind of awkward.

After stewing about this for a long time, I decided to rebrand the book with a new look and title in hopes more people will discover this wonderful book. It’s still one of my favorites.

Wanderlust is a love story between an older woman and a younger man set on the West African coast, full of humor and unexpected adventures.

Sarah Hansen of Okay Creations. flipped the original front and back cover. I LOOVE this version! I think the bed is more in keeping with the other two covers in the Modern Love Stories series. Plus, it’s perfect for sexy Selah. What do you think?

All files will be updated and the new version will go live on February 20th! I’ll have a very limited number of the original title/cover in paperback. When they’re gone, no more Missionary Position.

Coming soon from Molly McAdams….Blackbird (Redemption #1)

 

I absolutely LOVE Molly McAdams. I am counting down the days until Blackbird’s release, this book looks amazing and early reviews are fabulous! Make sure Blackbird (Redemption book 1) is on your tbr! Then make sure you have chocolate and vodka ready! 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams comes a powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

I live in a world few know exist. I’ve trained for this. I know what to say, what to do, and how to act. I’ve perfected the lethal calm required for this life.
Now it’s time to buy my first girl. But all it takes is one look at the brave girl who starts singing mid-auction for that calm to slip.
Briar Chapman is going to be the death of me, and I don’t care. I’ll take every day with her until that death comes, and I’ll welcome it when it does.

On the outside, Lucas Holt is what nightmares are made of. A man cloaked in darkness, with sin-filled eyes and an enticing grin. A devil so devastatingly beautiful and cruel that his very presence instills fear.
But beneath his terrifying, ever-calm exterior is an affectionate man haunted by a past that refuses to stay buried. And Lucas looks at me as though he’s finally found the only person who can make it all go away.
We’re a battle of the brightest day and the darkest night—and I want to lie in the wake of our war.
