The Weekend Surprise by Ella Jade - Review & Giveaway


Meet the Cannon Brothers...

I'm excited to announce the release of the anticipated sequel to The Weekend Proposition is available now!







A chance meeting or a calculated encounter? Someone is in for a surprise.

Brooklyn Conservatory student Sammy Falcone lives a quiet and modest life. She's busy studying classical music, playing her cello, and trying to make ends meet. After she learns of her deceased mother's secret that may involve the Cannon family, she heads to a wedding to catch a glimpse of the privileged clan, never expecting to come face-to-face with them.

Tyler Cannon must abandon his wild, partying ways and step up to help his brother Spencer run the family advertising business. When he meets Sammy at his brother's wedding he's immediately taken by the reserved beauty. Her innocence and simple lifestyle intrigue him enough to become a one-woman man.

Sammy is drawn to Tyler's charm and the attention he shows her. Once she gets to know him, the secrets of her mother's past are no longer important. The problem is Spencer has been suspicious of her from the beginning. Will Spencer's overprotectiveness of his family ruin her chances with Tyler? And if the truth comes out, will Sammy be able to convince Tyler that she never meant his family any harm?

This is the sequel to The Weekend Proposition but both books stand alone.

Review:

I loved The Weekend Proposition (see link below to my review), so when I had the chance to read & review The Weekend Surprise, of course I jumped on it. 

What's better than reading about one Cannon brother...why, reading about the other of course!

When we meet Tyler in Cannon's book, I wasn't quite sure if he would get his own story or not, although I was hopeful...there is nothing in this world like a reformed bad-boy...and that describes Tyler to a T!

The Weekend Surprise is just as hot, if not hotter Than Spencer's book! Not only do we get a fantastic love story, but there is a bit of a mystery too. Sammy & Tyler burn up the pages of this book, it is a MUST read!

Each book is a stand-alone, but, my recommendation is to definitely read both! I mean really, you need to have both of the Cannon brothers in you life!





Here is my review of The Weekend Proposition, from last year!


One weekend—no strings, no expectations, and no commitments. On Sunday afternoon it all ends, or does it?

No-nonsense businessman Spencer Cannon has a dilemma. He's headed to Connecticut for the weekend to attend his cousin's elaborate wedding. His whole family will be there in addition to his obsessed ex-girlfriend Ava. According to Spencer's brother, Ava has been telling her friends she's planning a magical reunion with her favorite ex-boyfriend. Spencer's not in the mood to deal with her, but he can't miss the wedding. He needs a plan.

Struggling Brooklyn waitress and aspiring graphic designer Dakota Vercelli has fallen on hard times. College debts, pending eviction, and her sick mother are taking a toll on her. A chance encounter with Mr. Cannon, CEO of Cannon and Carrington Advertising, leads to a proposition that may be just the thing to solve both of their problems. Spencer's offer—spend four days with him during the wedding festivities and keep his ex off his trail. In return, he'll compensate her generously for her time. He needs a weekend girlfriend, and Dakota needs the cash.

It was just supposed to be a business deal, but after sharing a room, kissing under the stars, and attending a wedding, their attraction is undeniable. Will the illusion end when the weekend is over or is the proposition just the beginning?

Jilted by Rachel Johns - Author Interview, Review & Giveaway!

Print Copy of JILTED or
$20 Amazon eGift Card











She'd left him at the altar, but her heart was always his……

After more than ten years away, Australian soap opera star Ellie Hughes returns to the small town of Hope Junction, determined to fly under the radar while caring for her injured godmother, Matilda.

But word spreads fast in the tight-knit community. It isn't long before the people of Hope Junction are gossiping about the real reason for Ellie's visit and why she broke the heart of golden boy Flynn Quartermaine all those years ago.

Soon Ellie and Flynn are thrown back together, forced to deal with the unresolved emotions between them. Because Ellie is not the only one with secrets. Flynn has his own demons to battle, and Matilda is hiding something from her much-loved goddaughter.


When all is uncovered, can the ill-fated lovers overcome the wounds of their past? Or is Flynn destined to be jilted again?


Review:

WOW! What an emotional read! The things going on with these characters was almost draining to read about. Now, that doesn't mean I didn't like it, as a matter of fact, I did like this book very much. There was just quite a bit going on.

Overall, it was a really good story. I think I just connected to it emotionally because of Matilda. Now, I wont go into details because it would give away a huge part of the story, but, let's just say I have had someone very close to me keep a very similar kind of secret from me. I was quite overwhelmed reading this.

Ellie and Flynn have a lot to work through before they can get together. You can tell the sparks between them never died. I highly recommend this book!

Over The Line, An Alpha Ops Novel by Emmy Curtis - Review

Over The Line
An Alpha Ops Novel
by Emmy Curtis


About OVER THE LINE:
Army Special Forces Sergeant Beth Garcia owes James Walker big-time for saving her life in Afghanistan. So the least she can do is agree to be his rock-climbing partner. After a year of physical therapy, she's finally eligible for deployment again, and what better way to celebrate than a weekend with a sexy Air Force hero? She's prepared to kick his ass at climbing-until James reveals what he really has in mind . . .

Pretending to be engaged wasn't the most brilliant idea James ever had. Neither was dragging Beth to his sister's wedding. The competitive tomboy is a far cry from the type of woman his family usually pushes on him. Yet Beth is more exciting than anyone he's ever met, and James has a feeling that if he can get her in bed, she'll blow his mind. They're just supposed to be acting-but as the wedding weekend wears on, Beth and James have a fighting chance at something real and much more lasting . . .

Review:

I love a great Romantic Suspense book! Any book that has the words Alpha & Ops in the title, you know I am going to look at those first. I have read and loved the first book/novella in this series,Dangerous Territory, which sets the whole idea for the rest of the series, so when I had the opportunity to read & read book #2, Over The Line, I jumped at the chance!

Over The Line has all the super sexy hot man candy a girl can handle, and I think I handled it very well! There is also sizzling poolside sexy time and a sexual awareness between James & Beth that almost set my Kindle on fire! I love when a story that you are reading gets you emotionally involved and Over The line does just that. From the edge of your seat suspense to the sweltering scenes between James & Beth I am absolutely in love with this series and cannot wait for Emmy Curtis to produce more. The next book in this series is Pushing The Limit and is due out around 11/4/2014!





 These covers are just so hot!!!!

VARIOUS STATES OF UNDRESS: VIRGINIA


When the president's daughter risks everything with her sexy new boss, they're bound to find themselves in Various States of Undress! 


If she had it her way, Virginia Fulton—daughter of the President of the United States—would spend more time dancing in Manhattan's nightclubs than working in its skyscrapers.

But the president's gorgeous daughter has her thumb on the pulse of Manhattan, and the partnership seems like a win-win … until Dex discovers that his goals now include more than securing the corner office—they include Virginia herself.

Learning The Ropes by T.J. Kline - Review & Giveaway







Learning the Ropes
Rodeo #3
By: T.J. Kline
Releasing September 30th
Avon Impulse


Blurb:

Rule #1 - Don’t lose focus...
Barrel racer Alicia Kanani has had a long road to the top - and she’s not quite there yet. Finances have always been tight, and in the glitz and glam world of professional rodeo, that means that second best is probably the best she can hope for. With the National Finals coming up, she’s certainly not looking for a pair of cowboys to distract her.

Rule #2 - Don’t gamble what you can’t live without…
Playboy Chris Thomas is sure Alicia’s the perfect woman for his level-headed team roping partner, David Greenly. It seems like a match, until Chris realizes he wants Alicia for himself. The stakes have been raised; David and Chris are supposed to be a team, and this time, they’re on opposite sides.

Can Alicia rope this playboy’s heart, or will they find themselves too tangled up to let true love in?


Review:

I always enjoy a good friends to lovers story-line, it's one of my favorites, but this book, I loved it! There was so much depth to this book I wasn't really sure where it would end up.

Chris introducing Alicia to David but, wanting her for himself. David falling for Alicia. The double betrayal of Chris and Alicia to David! The lack of communication between them all! Would there be an HEA? I wasn't so sure.That is what kept me hanging on, I needed to find out how it all ended. It was another one of those long nights of reading because I just couldn't put it down.
