KissingJenna_Amazon_WEB.jpg

Synopsis: From New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes the newest installment in her beloved Big Sky Series…
Jenna Hull owns and manages vacation rentals in her hometown of Cunningham Falls, Montana. She’s just completed the construction of her most exhausting project, the one she’s put her heart and soul into. The inviting, opulent Snow Wolf Cottages are the first ski in/ski out tree houses in the world.
Her biggest dream is about to come true, and she can’t let anything distract her.
Christian Wolfe is Hollywood’s it actor. If the magazines are to be believed, he’s the sexiest man on earth. He’s preparing for the biggest movie role of his life, and his agent has booked him in a hot new ski lodge in Montana, tucked away from crazy fans. He can’t wait for the break.
But what Christian isn’t prepared for is Jenna. With a face that could easily co-star with him in a movie and her ambition to put her stamp on Cunningham Falls, he can’t stay away. But even more intriguing than her beauty is the fact that she’s not at all impressed with his celebrity status, only turned on by the man behind the fame.
The love they’ve found is perfect—but time is running out before real life intrudes. Can they survive with both their dreams—and hearts—intact?

Review:

I was excited for Jenna's story after getting to know her in Charming Hannah. I was super intrigued by the tree house ski resort and even more exited to know there is a real place like this. Jenna is super fun and Christian is perfect for her! They have great chemistry and are sweet together. I also enjoyed the bit of Luke and Natalie we were able to get. I will definitely recommend this book to friends!!!

Review by Michele. Received an advanced copy for honest review. 


Excerpt:
“Come on in. This is your home away from home for the next four weeks.” I pause in the kitchen while he wanders through the space, looking outside, then taking in the blue kitchen cabinets, the large gas fireplace, and the comfortable furniture. “In the email correspondence, you asked for extra groceries to be stocked in the kitchen, and I’ve done that for you.”
“Thanks,” he says. “Where’s the closest Starbucks?”
I lean my hip on the counter and take a sip of my now lukewarm coffee. “In town.”
“Not on the mountain?”
“There’s a coffee shop up here, yes, but it doesn’t open until tomorrow when the season officially starts. I believe that’s the case for the restaurants up here, too.”
“So, no food up here?”
I shake my head. “No, but I’ll take pity on you and make you dinner tonight, if you like.”
His eyes narrow, suspicion written all over his face. “Why would you do that?”
I lean in as if I’m about to tell him a secret and whisper loudly, “Because I’m a nice person.”
He doesn’t smile.
“You can figure it out for yourself if you want to.” I shrug and lead him to the barn door that closes the small bedroom off the living space. “This is the bedroom on this level. There’s a bathroom here, too. I’ll show you the upstairs.”
I climb the stairs, certain that his eyes are on my ass, and hear him gasp when we reach the top.
“Cool, huh?”
“Beautiful,” he murmurs again, looking up.

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.
Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.
Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

★ ★ ★ COVER REVEAL!★ ★ ★

Because You're Mine by New York Times bestselling author Claire Contreras is coming July 12th, 2018!

When you grow up in the most feared mafia family, it's easy to identify the kind of men that are bad news.

 They're the ones with experience.

The ones with secrets.

The ones that exude sex just by saying your name.

 From the minute I laid eyes on Lorenzo, I knew he wasn't just bad news.

He was the headline.

 My opinion didn't change on our second meeting.

Or our third.

 But my head and my heart are at war.

 He’s too mysterious, too gorgeous, too wild, and now, he wants me.

I should run far away.

So why am I racing toward him?

I’m totally going to get burned.

I know it.

A man like Lorenzo won’t leave me unscathed.

He'll make ashes of me.

BLOG TOUR - TELL ME LIES by Carola Lovering

Lucy Albright is far from her Long Island upbringing when she arrives on the campus of her small California college, and happy to be hundreds of miles from her mother, whom she’s never forgiven for an act of betrayal in her early teen years. Quickly grasping at her fresh start, Lucy embraces college life and all it has to offer—new friends, wild parties, stimulating classes. And then she meets Stephen DeMarco. Charming. Attractive. Complicated. Devastating.

Confident and cocksure, Stephen sees something in Lucy that no one else has, and she’s quickly seduced by this vision of herself, and the sense of possibility that his attention brings her. Meanwhile, Stephen is determined to forget an incident buried in his past that, if exposed, could ruin him, and his single-minded drive for success extends to winning, and keeping, Lucy’s heart.

Lucy knows there’s something about Stephen that isn’t to be trusted. Stephen knows Lucy can’t tear herself away. And their addicting entanglement will have consequences they never could have imagined.

 Alternating between Lucy’s and Stephen’s voices, TELL ME LIES follows their connection through college and post-college life in New York City. With the psychological insight and biting wit of Luckiest Girl Alive, and the yearning ambitions and desires of Sweetbitter, this keenly intelligent and staggeringly resonant novel chronicles the exhilaration and dilemmas of young adulthood, and the difficulty of letting go—even when you know you should.

REVIEW by Heather:

This is the first book of Carola Lovering, that I have read. So let me share my thoughts.  Tell Me Lies starts bounces from the present to the past throughout the entire book. It starts off in the present where Lucy is heading to New Jersey to be a bridesmaid in one of her closest friends wedding. A friend she met while in college and stayed in touch after they both graduated.  Lucy is excited to see her friend get married, but she isn't excited about seeing a certain person from her past....  insert STEPHEN.

Lucy and Stephen have a past. A not so pleasant past might I add. Lucy settles for second best, or so I thought. However, in Lucy's mind, Stephen loved her. At least he told her that. Stephen is one of those guys that you want to kick in the balls throughout the book. He is a narcissist. He loves himself, and is so self absorbed. But yet, he seems to attract all the ladies. He plays women like a fiddle, Lucy being one of his favorite instruments.

Throughout the book, Lucy falls into Stephen's trap. No matter how many times he hurts her, she continues to go back for more. This being one of the biggest problems in the book for me. I hate seeing Lucy fall victim to Stephen time and time again. While Lucy was in college, she changed. She wasn't the same girl that entered her freshman year. Grant it everyone changes while we grow, while we evolve into adulthood. But Lucy didn't change for the better. She grew distant from her friends. She began to lie more frequently. Why?  All because she didn't want her friends to share their opinions with her. To tell her that Stephen was only going to continue to hurt her. Instead, she continued to allow Stephen to her more lies.

I wanted Lucy to change. I wanted Lucy to be strong. I didn't care for the ending of the story. I felt like Lucy only realized what a manipulative monster Stephen was, was in the last few pages of the novel. She finally had a revelation at the very end.

Overall, I would give this novel a 3 star rating. Not that the story or editing was done poorly, I was just frustrated reading the relationship between Lucy and Stephen. Or the relationship between Lucy and her mother, who she called CJ. I didn't connect with the characters or the story.

Release Day - TATTERED by Devney Perry

   
 

Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour. So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again. Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself. But for their daughter.

        

AVAILABLE NOW

Amazon | iBooks | B&N | Kobo

      


Thea and I had agreed on just one night. One incredible night. The next morning, we’d walked away from each other with no strings attached. She’d gone back to her life. I’d gone back to my hectic work and social schedule, just glad that I’d had the chance to meet her. What I hadn’t expected was for Thea to pop into my thoughts so often after that night. I’d think of her smile whenever I was at a hotel bar. I’d think of her laugh when I was at a boring fundraiser. I’d think of her whenever I saw a woman with long, sleek dark hair. After months of her on my mind, I’d finally given in. I’d gone back to the bar to see her one more time. Except she’d been gone. With my child. I’d waited too long.
