Release Blitz & ARC Review!- Hard (The Bear Chronicles of Willow Creek, #2) by Julia Keith, Emily Minton

Hard Banner
Title:  Hard (The Bear Chronicles of Willow Creek, #2)
Author: Julia Keith, Emily Minton
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publication Date: February 28th 2016

Eli Artair thought his cousin was crazy when he decided to marry a human. When he said he loved her only a few days later, Eli knew his cousin had totally lost his mind. There’s no way a shifter could fall in love so easily, especially with a human. 

He changes his mind when he meets Liza...

Liza Calder thought her sister was crazy when she married a man sight unseen. When she called a few days later to say she was in love with her husband, Liza knew her sister had gone totally loco. No one can fall in love that fast, especially with a stranger. 

She changes her mind when she meets Eli....

Can two people that don’t believe in love at first sight discover it in each others arms?

Hard is an erotic shifter novella. If you don’t like insta-lust that turns into insta-love, a sex starved bear shifter, a heroine that craves her mate, or tons of smoking hot sex this is not the book for you.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via The Hype PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

I think I'm one of those special people who only notices sign ups last minute and am literally racing against time to get my review done in time for the blitz.

Luckily for me, though, this book was addictive to get into and I read it pretty fast.

Hard, picks up right after Rough left off-- *and YES, I encourage you to read these in order*-- and felt more whole and complete than its predecessor. While I did enjoy bk1, my biggest complaint was that I didn't feel a lot of character personality, rapport with the other protagonist, and not much plot. It was basically, the male lead had to find a human mate to minimize exposure of his town inhabitants and after he does, then BAAAAMM! Lots and lots of sex.

What works for Hard, was that it had more going on and natural turmoil coming into the picture. I liked the whole backstory and explaining of why Eli does not like humans, and why he's so adamant against taking a non-shifter female~~ journeying on to him meeting Liza who happens to be his alpha's sister in law and how he succumbs to his fate despite his dad's objections of it.

And as for Liza, after living in a foster home and not having much to call your own~~ to coming full circle, and discovering a new beginning with a family to call your own and a love of a lifetime.

For those of you who are hopeless romantics with a sprinkle of paranormal, hot sex, and destiny in the mix-- this is for you!

I can't wait for more from this series!

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway!- Soulless (King, #4) by T.M. Frazier

soulless book tour.jpg

Bear & Thia’s epic is FINALLY HERE!


Title:  Soulless (King, #4)
Author: T.M. Frazier
Publication Date: February 23rd 2016
Plot:  The finale to Bear and Thia's epic love story.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via TRSOR PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

In Bear and Thia’s pulsating final ride, we delve straight in from where bk1 left off~~
With Bear in cuffs and accused of murder and Thia reeling of their awaited fate.

Now with everything in question and our couple’s lives up the air and in jeopardy, Bear and Thia must fight tooth and nail for their HEA after Bear’s tyrannical father shows up in the midst and threatens to undo everything they have worked for.

Can Bear protect the one thing that makes him whole? The one person who gives him purpose?

“I’d found a purpose. A real genuine purpose and not just some shit Chop spewed out as orders…but a true reason to live again. To WANT to live again. Someone to live for.”
#Oh Bear, how the mighty have fallen.

We do get to see more peaks of Bear’s turbulent past in this, along with colorful inflections on how far he’s come from his gritty, even manwhoring days, to where he is now in his oh so ever growing fucked up life.

He’s truly come full circle since meeting Thia... and he, and even Thia, herself, have grown in so many, many ways. Definitely, satisfying for those who have been waiting and waiting for their epic finale! *wowza!*

I’m still hoping for a certain someone to be not dead but who knows what’s going on in that head of TM Frazier!

#Anyway,I’mSTILLteamPEPPY4Life. Haha. Oh, the irony.
My Rating:

PROLOGUE I was mad at the world, at the whiskey for not being strong enough, at the drugs for not lasting long enough, at the fucking whores I banged for not getting me off when it was my fault my dick was fucking useless after a bucket of fucking blow. I went so far as to be pissed at random people on the street for laughing or smiling when I felt like I’d never be able to smile or laugh again. How dare they? How fucking dare they be move on with their lives like my friend hadn’t just died. I was on the verge of losing what little sanity I had left when I rode out of Logan's Beach and set off to find a place, or places, where I could numb myself against the feelings that followed me from town to town, cheap motel to cheap motel, girl to girl, high to fucking high. Then, this pink haired girl from the past came barreling into my life and it was like for the first time, I’d found a purpose. A real genuine purpose and not just some shit Chop spewed out as orders that I and every other member of the Beach Bastards took as bible, but a true reason to live again. To WANT to live again. Someone to live for. Ti was my chance at some sort of real happiness when Lord fucking knows I had no idea what that really was before her. The only glimpses of real genuine happiness I'd ever had came courtesy of Preppy, King, and of course Grace. Like when King tattooed us for the first time and we loved them, even though they were crooked and downright fucking awful. Like when Grace made me my very first birthday cake. Like the time King Prep and I sat at the top of the water tower and thought the world was ours to take. Because at that time, it was. Then there was Ti and my new happiness became the first time I saw her smile. The first time I kissed her. The first time I tasted her pussy by the fire. The first time she let me inside of her, shamelessly pushing through her virginity in a frantic need to make her mine. Because that's what she was. That's what she would always be. And I will kill every motherfucker who dares to try and take her from me. Mine.

Release Blitz + ARC Review- Burn (Fastlane Series #3) by Sloan Storm

RB Banner
Title:  Burn (Fastlane Series #3) 
Author: Sloan Storm
Genre: Romance
Publication Date: February 26th 2016 
Plot:  Chance Vix -- what kind of maniac rips down a straightaway at more than two hundred miles an hour on a motorcycle which, oh by the way, costs more than a mansion? 

What kind of brute crushes all challengers, decimates rivals and has owned the crown of one of the world's most deadly sports for years? What kind of stud leaves women everywhere desperate for his attention, willing to do almost anything to try and tame him?

I'll tell you what kind. The most mouth-watering, heart-stopping, daredevil of a head-to-toe hunk I'd ever laid eyes on in my life - that's what kind.

And me? Well, let's just say good girls from Indiana don't wind up with guys like Chance Vix. Ever. No. Nope, never happens.

Unlike Chance, I'd taken the slowlane through life, playing it safe the entire time. And what had it gotten me? An end to a five-year relationship with my accountant boyfriend slash wanna-be rocker who spent more time playing gigs than sleeping with me.

When an unplanned trip to an exotic locale, far removed from midwest gloom, brought Chance and me together, I had no idea how much my life would change.

Could I hold on? Was I crazy to even try?

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆ 

In entirety, I liked this third installment but it did struggle with what I felt was plot continuity and originality for the most part. 

The book synopsis was what had brought me in, not to mention reading the previous two books in the series, but execution wise this one was a so-so type of read for me. It had potential and does have some highlights and even steamy moments that worked for it, but all in all, some of what unfolded was a bit lackluster for me a bit. 

I guess it’s that nature of living life in the fast lane and the delicate nature of how fast things can accelerate or burn to the ground. It was exciting at times, yes, but at the same time it also would shift drastically. 

I’m not at all saying that this is a bad book guys. I did actually in my own way enjoy it. But as a reviewer, I do feel that it is my duty to be honest and be as constructive (well, if I was at all) as I could be. Not a bad read!!
