When Lacey Winters escapes her stressful New York City life for a relaxing winter vacation in the Caribbean, she’s ready to get some sun and enjoy a little time to herself. But her plans for peace and tranquility are shattered when she finds that her ex-boyfriend is already at the same resort – and with the same woman Lacey found him cheating with. 

Reeling from the shock and determined to prove she’s moved on, Lacey impulsively kisses a handsome stranger she spotted on the beach and does it in front of her ex.

As for the stranger in question, Drew Mitchell was just looking for a fun getaway from his busy life in Chicago. He’s surprised, but pleased at this unexpected turn of events and agrees to pose as Lacey’s new boyfriend.

As they explore their tropical surroundings as a couple, Drew finds himself drawn toward Lacey. Now, all he has to do is convince her their romance is real and strong enough to flourish once their vacation is over, while Lacey must decide if she’s ready to take the leap and fall in love.

The Paranormals are riding high and Zak should be ecstatic. Instead, he’s exhausted. Having to supply the demon Abaddon with a quota of souls, as well as rehearse, record, and tour means his workload is just too heavy.

 

Shop Assistant Erica is feeling down. Running The Paranormals Fan Club in her spare time, their fans believe she’s in constant touch with her idols, while the truth is she’s not seen them since the final of Britain’s Best New Band and she weirdly can’t remember much of that.

 

When Erica demands a face-to-face interview with Zak, he surprisingly invites her to spend a week accompanying the band as they play London. The band are annoyed at not being consulted, apart from guitarist Noah, who knows that Zak’s deal with the demon can be undone if Zak finds his true love, and what if Erica just happens to be the one?

 

All hell (well, the seventh dimension), is about to break loose.

Blurb:
Iโ€™ve had a fifteen-year-plan since high schoolโ€”get a degree in hospitality, learn the ropes working for a big hotel, before opening my own bed and breakfast. 
Eli Hastings isnโ€™t part of that plan. The sexy-as-sin contractor I hired to renovate my bed and breakfast is the kind of man Iโ€™ve learned to stay away from. 
I canโ€™t stand him most of the time, especially when heโ€™s interfering in my dreams like a know-it-all. That doesnโ€™t mean I donโ€™t imagine what it would feel like to have him pressed against me, but those fantasies are my best kept secret. 
I try to hate him, but one kiss is enough to give in to my desires. Eli challenges me to live outside of my box, until one major deviation in my plan is too big to ignore. I refuse for anything to stand in the way of my dream, even if it causes me to break my own heart.

Excerpt

Harlow
Itโ€™s not like I didnโ€™t know places like this existed, or people like Cash lived in them. I just never expected to have an up close and personal encounter. Itโ€™s so far removed from my world. Iโ€™ve spent my life in the poorest parts of the world with my parents, traveling in pop up clinics where they would treat and vaccinate and Iโ€™d teach. Since graduating University that is my life, six months abroad, six months in the UK raising money to do the next six months. 
Sniffing, an unpleasant thought crosses my mind. I push it to the back and lock it away.
โ€œWhat?โ€ Cash narrows his eyes, watching my face for clues. Itโ€™s probably written like a big fat Sharpie pen across my forehead, still I force a flat smile and shake my head.
โ€œNothing.โ€ I say silently reminding myself; not the time Harlow, not the time to point out that his furniture probably cost more than I will make in my lifetime.
He drops his piles of letters, irritation clipping his words nice and short. โ€œOK, we might as well get this out of the way if youโ€™re going to be working for me.โ€ He straightens himself to his full height and walks closer to me. I straighten too. Iโ€™m not intimidated by his height, itโ€™s his aurora that has me shaken and he damn well knows it. So much so that it takes a few long seconds for my brain to process what heโ€™s just said.
โ€œGet what out of the way? Wait a minute! What do you mean, work for you? Why on earth would I work for you?โ€ 
โ€œBecause darlinโ€™ You. Owe. Me.โ€ He steps closer with each carefully pronounced word.
โ€œWhat?โ€
โ€œDid I stutter?โ€ He cocks his head and leaves me utterly speechless. He canโ€™t be serious? I mean he looks deadly serious but really? What a complete fucking arsehole.
My blood is boiling at this point and it takes every ounce of restraint not to knock that smug expression off his face. I storm over a the desk in the corner of the room with a flashy Apple PC and wiggle the mouse to wake the screen. He walks up behind me, his body brushes mine. I ignore the sparks of electricity that crackle between. Heโ€™s too close to think. Leaning over, I find I have to bend with him or heโ€™d crush me trying to reach the switch on at the wall. The screen lights up. Itโ€™s a compromising position and I happily elbow him in the gut to give me some space. He steps to the side, clearly amused a throaty laugh rumbles from him. I sit. It takes a moment to open my bank and a few seconds more to remember my login details.
โ€œSo how much do I owe you exactly?โ€ I ask.
โ€œTwelve thousand dollars for the flight and lets say two hundred for the transfer and accommodation. Iโ€™ll throw the food in gratis.โ€ He says mater of factly. I snort.
โ€œOh youโ€™re such a gentleman but you can do one, if you think Iโ€™m paying twelve grand for a flight I already paid for. I didnโ€™t ask for the upgrade.โ€ Iโ€™m standing now, indignation prickling my last nerve raw.
โ€œBut you took it.โ€ He states.
โ€œYou didnโ€™t give me a choice.โ€ Exasperated, I donโ€™t know him well enough to know if heโ€™s playing me. It feels like a game yet, it doesnโ€™t.
โ€œOh please, you had a choice. It just served your goodie-two-shoes ideals to pretend you didnโ€™t.โ€ He arches a knowing brow. Even if this was a game Iโ€™m done playing and the last thing I want in the world is owe this man a single damn penny.
โ€œYou are unbelievable you know that?โ€
โ€œIโ€™ve been called worse, now pay up princess.โ€ He cups his hand as if waiting for my to hand over the physical cash into his expectant palm.
โ€œHow do you sleep at night.?โ€ I snide and sit back down.
โ€œButt naked with the AC on full.โ€ 







Book Review – Waiting For Milo by Angel Devlin.

Book Review – Waiting For Milo by Angel Devlin.

Blurb:

โ€œHe called her Rapunzel.

Now sheโ€™s back in a tower of her own making.

Can he rescue his princess and live happily ever after?

After purchasing her nanโ€™s old home, Violet Blake wonders if the mysterious Waite family still live in the house across the garden. But there are bigger things to worry aboutโ€”like how sheโ€™s going to get the hole in the ceiling repaired and the neglected house modernised. Lucky for her, the Waite family do turn out to be her neighbours and run a property renovation business.

Enter Milo Waite.

Caveman. Protector. Stubborn as hell.

He wonโ€™t take no for an answer and sets about making sure his princess has her castle. But repairing the house isnโ€™t his only project. He wants Violet.

Real life isnโ€™t a fairy tale though, and buried family secrets threaten not only their budding relationship but to tear their families apart.โ€

Review:

I canโ€™t tell you how much I enjoyed this book! Itโ€™s one of those romance books that is perfect for taking on holiday to read in the sun whilst lazing by the pool or on the beach! It was so easy to get into that I finished it in just over a day, reading whenever I got a spare moment.

It was wonderfully written. The characters were all lovable making you want to get to know each and every one of them. But Milo Waite… Milo is my new book boyfriend! Oh heโ€™s so dreamy! Everything youโ€™d want in a boyfriend. He absolutely worships Violet and wants the best for her. Oh sure heโ€™s a Neanderthal, as Violet would say, but sheโ€™s not afraid to put him in his place and point out when heโ€™s being an idiot and overreacting. I loved seeing their romance blossom. Although a couple of obstacles were thrown their way and I wasnโ€™t sure if theyโ€™d overcome them!

The book ends on such a cliffhanger! Oh my god! I was so shocked! I absolutely need to know what happens next!! Hurry up and release the sequel, Waiting For Cal, Angel Devlin!

Book Review – Summer Princess by Sloane Murphy.

Book Review – Summer Princess by Sloane Murphy.

Summer Princess, previously known as A Princessโ€™ Duty, is revised and revamped with an additional 12K words (if memory serves). It was just as engaging as the first time around. That twist at the end! Omg Iโ€™d forgot about that twist, though! Oooh the double betrayal is real! I feel more hurt by the second betrayal than I do about the first. The second cut deeeeep! Yeah, you bet I felt it just as much as poor Emilia did!

Emilia, her twin brother, Edimere, and older brother Erion, have been friends with Rowan and Cade for years. Each month, the Summer or Winter fae court hosts a party. Itโ€™s not like your normal human party. These parties are brutal and bloody, a time for the fae to embrace their darker side. 19 year old Emiliaโ€™s world is turned upside down when her twin brother, Edimere, meets his death after he kills a Summer court villager who, unbeknownst to him, is Rowanโ€™s love and was set up by Rowan and Cadeโ€™s father in an effort to show Rowan that the villagers are beneath them.

5 years later Emiliaโ€™s life is not what it was. Her parents blame her for the death of her brother and have been and done awful things to her ever since. She seeks love in the form of Oberon, a half fae Hunter, but keeps it secret because no one would approve of her being with a hunter. One day her father finds out and Oberon is captured and sent to the cages. Emilia is told the only way she can save him is to go to the Winter court and win Cadeโ€™s hand in marriage, forming a truce between the two courts. Emilia has never forgiven Cade so itโ€™s the last thing she wants to do but she does it in an effort to save Oberon. But can she?

Youโ€™re really pulled into this story, feeling all the emotions the characters do, feeling as though youโ€™re right there with them. The twists and turns were fantastic! I loved the character development of Emilia and Cade. Her friendship with Rowan was so precious. The writing is beautiful and really grips you, keeping you reading and not wanting it to end. I canโ€™t wait for book two to be released. I need to know what happens! If you love a dark fantasy read then this one is for you!

The only negative Iโ€™d have to comment about is the grammar/spelling mistakes I came across. However, I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest review so Iโ€™m hoping they will have been smoothed out in the mean time ready for the final copy to be released to the public.

Book Review – Dark Secret by Danielle Rose.

I fell in love with this book straight away! Witches AND vampires?! Whatโ€™s not to love if youโ€™re a fan of YA paranormal reads? I love how in-depth Danielle went with the witches and their magic lore and I love the spin that she took with the main character, Ava, after a fight with a vampire didnโ€™t quite go to plan. Ava is tasked with protecting her coven and the village of Darkhaven from the vampires but her coven doesnโ€™t trust her ability to sense the darkness that is coming which she tries to prove otherwise. Throughout the book she goes from strength to strength, but not without her flaws and weaknesses, whilst she struggles to adapt to a life she never wanted. There is a hint of romance running through this book which I really enjoyed and am excited to see where itโ€™ll lead in the second book. Danielleโ€™s writing is incredibly detailed and such a delight to read. I really enjoyed that it was written in first person too. This would be the perfect book if youโ€™re just starting out on your YA paranormal journey.

Synopsis

There’s no wrath like that of a witch scorned.

Seventeen-year-old spirit witch Ava Lรณpez is the self-appointed guardian of the witches and humans of Darkhaven, an idyllic village nestled between the forest and the sea. Her watch: vicious and bloodthirsty vampires.

Ava is a novice in the eyes of her coven. If she expects to protect them and the secrecy of their powers, she must gain better control of her own. When a full moon ritual goes awry, control may be lost forever, and Ava is exiled from her coven. Forced to seek refuge among the beings she had always sworn herself to hunt, she vows revenge on those who have upended her life.

But the more time Ava spends away from her coven, the more she discovers a startling truth: the witches havenโ€™t been honest with her. Avaโ€™s quest to strip the truth from everything sheโ€™s ever known begins with the toughest realization of allโ€”coming to terms with who she has become.

She had no idea what I was willing to do, who I used to be, and what I was capable of when it came to protecting those I loved. She had no idea the lengths Iโ€™d go to to give her a happy ever after. My girl had no idea at all.
Authors’ Bios

Victoria L. James is a teenage girl stuck inside a thirty-something-year-oldโ€™s body. A Corona and nacho appreciator with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky Balboa, she currently lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband and two baby boys. Having had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, she credits her love of literature to her Grandma Bess who taught her that you donโ€™t need a lot of money to travel to different worlds, experience new places, and live a thousand lives.

L.J. Stock has always lived in a world of her own, continuously lost in her imagination. Whether in the forests that backed up to her home in Aberdeen when she was only six years old, the unique landscape of Singapore she discovered at eight, or the rolling woodlands that rolled up to Dartmoor during her teen years, there have always been new worlds to explore.
Now an adult living in Houston, Texas, there’s more concrete in the jungle surrounding her, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t stories to tell. She now has too many. When she’s not writing, Louise can be found hanging out with her family, crazy pup, or at the computer lost in her creativity of her successful graphic design business, L.J. Designs.

The Only Exception could be read as a standalone, but in order to fully understand their history and backstory, we strongly, strongly advise reading The Trouble with Izzy and/or A Fight for Ethan first, both of which are available for #FREE in Kindle Unlimited.
