Out of My League by Jessica Prince ~ Release Blitz & Review

Title: Out of My League
Author: Jessica Prince
Series: Hope Valley
Genre: Contemporary Romance

After years of war, Lincoln Sheppard thought he’d left the violence and ugliness behind. He was content with the life he built for himself. Then the woman down the street came in and shook everything up.

All Eden Brenner ever wanted was to have a place to call home. She finally found that in Hope Valley. Then she went and fell in love with the man a few houses down the first time she laid eyes on him. There was just one problem. Women like her didn’t catch the attention of men like him. He was totally and completely out of her league. And to make matters worse, when her past comes knocking, the beautiful world she’s built for herself is at risk of crumbling to the ground.

When danger forces Eden into his arms, Lincoln begins to see her in a whole new light, and he suddenly finds himself wanting things he never expected. And he wants them all with the shy, clumsy woman from down the street. But when the truth comes out, that proves nearly impossible. Now he’s fighting the hardest battle of his life, and the stakes are higher than ever. Protect the woman he’s falling for while trying to win her heart at the same time.

“What the hell was that?” I finally managed to ask on a heavy exhale.

“Two weeks, buttercup,” he said on a growl. “Two fuckin’ weeks I’ve had to watch you at a distance, and the first words you speak to me in that time are to jump down my goddamn throat.”

I tried to step back, but his arms tightened. “Well, what did you think I’d do when I found out?”

“Exactly this,” he said smugly.

“Wait. You wanted me to come in here and blow up at you?”

“If that’s what it took to get you to stop pretendin’ like I don’t exist, then yeah. I’ve been going outta my goddamn mind for two weeks, Edie.”

“That makes two of us!” I cried. “Only mine’s all your fault.”

“It was a means to an end. One way or another, I was gonna keep you safe. I wanted to do it my damn self, but you wouldn’t allow that, so I did the next best thing, with a little added incentive to my boys to do everything in their power to annoy you to the point that you’d let me back in so I could look after you.”

Putting my hands to his chest, I shoved as hard as I possibly could. It was like trying to move a mountain. “For god’s sake,” I gasped. “Do you have any idea how insane that sounds?”

“Haven’t been feelin’ all that fuckin’ sane the past couple weeks, buttercup,” he clipped in return.

I gave him another shove, and another, and another until he finally relented and let me go. “Don’t say that,” I snapped back just as hard, causing him to tilt his head in confusion.

“Don’t say what?”

“Don’t call me buttercup like that. Not when you’re pissed. You gave me that name when we first met, and I’ve freaking loved it ever since. Don’t you use it sarcastically. That’s not fair.”

Everything suddenly shifted. Lincoln’s anger and irritation faded away, and his face took on that soft warmth that made my heart flip. “I’m sorry, baby,” he said so gently that I thought I might break down and cry right then and there. “I promise not to do it again.”

God, I was a wreck. I was so off-kilter I didn’t know up from down. “Jesus, Linc. What are we doing here? This isn’t normal behavior. It’s totally unhealthy.”

He crossed his arms over his chest, and for the first time since storming in, I actually noticed what he was wearing. Running shoes, a pair of loose black basketball shorts that hung tantalizingly off his narrow hips, and another Under Armour shirt, only this one was white and sleeveless. And damn, did he look good.

He watched me closely as he leaned back casually against the door, cutting off any hopes I might have had of escaping. “You’re right, Edie. Nothing about this is normal, but I’m fine with that.”

“How can you say that?” I asked in frustration, the tsunami of emotions inside of me making it impossible to think straight. “How could you ever be okay with this?”

“Because I’ve never cared about someone the way I care about you. I was just fine with the way my life was before you came along, Eden. I never considered marriage or kids or settling down. As far as I was concerned, none of that shit was for me. Then I met you.”

“Lincoln—”

But he wasn’t finished. “You told me that what we had was real for you from the very beginning. What I didn’t realize was that it was the same for me too.” All the air expelled from my lungs on a painful exhale. “When I held you on the dance floor that first night, everything changed. You’re genuine and beautiful. I don’t just want you, Eden, I want to know you. You’re different than any woman I’ve ever been with.”

“I make you laugh,” I whispered, the words spilling out of their own accord.

He nodded and lowered his voice. “You make me laugh.” Pushing off the wall, he closed the distance between us and placed a palm on either side of my neck, using his thumbs to tip my face up. “And you make it so easy. I didn’t think that was possible, baby.”

“Nona told me you don’t laugh a lot,” I said quietly. “I didn’t believe her because I’d seen it myself every time we were together.”

“That was because of you, Edie. Only you.”

I couldn’t take it anymore. Lifting onto my toes, I slammed my lips against his and kissed him with everything I was.

Out of My League is a sweet, sexy, small-town, alpha, slow-burn romance. From the moment that I “met” Eden I just wanted to read more and more and more. I wanted to be friends with her. There was just something about her that was so real. I absolutely adore reading “real” characters ones that have depth and flaws and just aren’t too perfect to be able to relate to. Jessica has a real knack for delivering these types of characters. Lincoln and Eden were so great together. I can not wait to return to Hope Valley to read more about this new town and all the intriguing characters we met there!

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

Real Dirty by Meghan March ~ Review Blitz

 

Real Dirty AMAZONI have everything a guy could want—a new single burning up the charts, more money than a simple country boy could spend, and a woman I’m planning to marry.

Until she doesn’t show up for my proposal.

The life I thought was so perfect, isn’t.

The guy who thought he had everything, doesn’t.

I’ve got my heart on lockdown, but life sends me straight into the path of a mouthy bartender who puts me in my place.

Now the only place I want to put her is under me.

I thought I was done with love, but maybe I’m just getting started.

REVIEW

Jill’s Review

With a title like Real Dirty who wouldn’t want to get down and dirty with Boone Thrasher and delve deep into those pages?

Poor sexy country superstar BooneThrasher has just had his heart stomped on by his fiancee. I mean really the man planned THE most elaborate proposal in the history of ever, and the B**** didn’t even have the nerve to show her face! I mean really, it looks like he dodged a bullet with that one — but try telling a bruised and battered heart that! (but then again — great country songs come from stuff like this! — just saying!) But a good man doesn’t stay down for long. And underneath that bad boy exterior, that is exactly what this swoonworthy grumpster is! And when he slinks into a bar and comes face to face with a sassy bartender named Ripley the sparks start to fly.

I loved how these two pushed each other out of their comfort zones. Neither of them just sat back and took life as it came flowing over them, but they fought back, and they fought for each other. And pushed the other to be a better version of themselves. They brought out the best in the other — and really isn’t that what we look for in a relationship. Even when that relationship wasn’t one we were looking for. Even when it comes up out of nowhere at the most inconvenient of times. We want someone who is going to compliment us and boy do Boone & Ripley compliment each other — both in and out of the sack 😉

Real Dirty is the first book in the Real Dirty Duet… and OMG do I need the next book NOW. But never fear — Real Sexy is literally just around the corner and Meghan March will answer all of our burning questions and finish Boone & Ripley’s story. I have to say that I really adore how she gives us these duets and doesn’t make us wait to get the conclusion. Seriously it is brilliant!

So do I recommend this — ummm… Hell yes! Go on and #1click now!

Real Sexy AMAZONIn Nashville, country stars are a dime a dozen.

I swore I’d never get caught up with one, but Boone Thrasher made a liar out of me.

I said I’d never put my heart on the line, but he didn’t ask before he stole it.

Now we’re facing my worst fears, and we’ll see if this country boy is tough enough to see it through.

Girls like me don’t get happily ever afters… but maybe he’ll prove that wrong too.

The Boy Next Door - ABOUT BOOK


The boy next door. That’s what he was. Dash Frasier—my hero from the day we met, when I was six and he was nine. His sister was my best friend, the three of us one happy crew. Then one sweaty summer night changed everything.

No one understood me like Dash. No one made me feel so loved. That’s why, when he skipped town, it wrecked me.

Now I’m older. Wiser. I’ve just snagged my dream job, writing at a film studio. The lead animator on my project? You guessed it.

He’s not the boy next door. Not anymore.

I’m guarding my heart this time.

But Dash has secrets that could break us both.

REVIEW

Jill’s Review

In The Boy Next Door Ella James gives us a friends to lovers second chance romance that sucked me in and had me rooting for them to find their way back to each other.

Amelia and Dash grew up as next door neighbors. He was her best friend’s brother (and haven’t we all had a crush on our friend’s older brothers!) And really he was the perfect crush material he rescued her the very first time they met — and he was always around to talk and hang out.. until one day he just stopped showing up. Fast forward to now! Amelia walks into her new summer internship and who the F does she run into? Who is the lead animator of her team? The one she will work oh so closely with? Yeah, you nailed it — that boy from next door! Uh oh!

Their story is told through both of their POVs as well as through flashbacks. I loved how this was done as it really connected me to them. It made me want to reach through the screen and squeeze them and figure out what secrets were hiding out there so that I could make sure it didn’t explode in their faces and ruin the beauty that was building between them. Becuase I wanted them to succeed. And because damn — the sexy times… I REALLY didn’t want to see that end!

I recommend this one — this sexy second chance romance is definitely one where you are hoping all that angst that the boy next door went through wins the girl in the end!

Chance Encounters by Jessica Prince ~ Blog Tour

SBPRBanner-ChanceEncounters-BT.jpg

Chance Encounters
by Jessica Prince
Publication Date: May 8th, 2017
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Chance Encounters, an all-new romantic comedy from Jessica Prince is available now!!

CHance-Encounters-for-web

There are three kinds of nerdy women in the world.

– The Sexy Nerd

– The Confident Nerd; and

– The So-Socially-Awkward-it’s-Painful-to-Watch Nerd.

You can probably guess which one I am. After witnessing me making a fool of myself, Chance Hoffman decided to take pity on me. He’s smart, sexy, charming, and totally out of my league… and for some unexplainable reason, he wants to help me. Who am I to say no? Besides, I need all the assistance I can get.

There are three things that make a woman irresistible.

– Confidence

– A Wicked Sense of Humor; and

– A Killer Rack.

Melany Fitzgerald had none of those things. Or so I thought… until I really got to know her. She’s the total package and she doesn’t even realize it. Now I’m stuck with the uncomfortable task of helping her land another guy, all the while trying to ignore the fact that I’m starting to fall for her.

She thinks she’s an ugly duckling and wants to become a swan. All I want is her. And I’m not giving up without a fight.

Jill’s Review

Oh Chance! I wanted you to find a woman… I just never really saw it going down like this! Leave it to Jessica Prince to make it so that after Chance has been spurned by every woman we have seen him with — the shy, bumbling assistant he agreed to help land her crush is the one that brings him to his knees! But OMG! Watching him fall was such a treat! The chemistry between them was electric! But what was truly swoonworthy was how he saw Melany’s true worth right from the start and how he helped to build her self-esteem up! And Melany really had it all — yes she was beyond awkward… yes social situations were her downfall.. but she still had a spine and confidence beneath it all. It was just finding the courage and support to pull it all together.

I adored this sexy read that managed to be fun and touching at the same time!

All About the D by Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam ~ Release Blitz

 

Title: All About the D
Authors: Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam
Genre: Standalone Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 2, 2017

 

Blurb
A sexy new romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin and bestselling author Leslie McAdam…

 

ALL ABOUT THE D

I’m known for being formal. Meticulous. Professional.

So you’d never suspect I spend my nights photographing my impressive junk for a NSFW blog. Don’t roll your eyes. I’m not bragging. I have millions of followers who’ll tell you they live for my posts.

I’m like a superhero, saving humanity one dick pic at a time.

Except leading a double life means I need someone to help me protect my anonymity, so that no one, especially my family, ever discovers my online celebrity.

When I call one of the most respected law firms in town, I expect quality legal advice and confidentiality. Not a sinfully sexy attorney whose dangerous curves and soul-piercing gray eyes make me want to personally demonstrate my particular skill set. 

I shouldn’t be tempted.

Especially when she knows all of my best-kept secrets. But everyone has a breaking point. And I’ve met mine.

Jill’s Review
I could not get enough of the D. I just wanted more and more of it. Bring me more D! Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam just nailed it with this book.

When I saw the blurb for the book, it definitely caught my attention and made me think… hmmmm, I think this will be fun. But once I dove into this book it was just so much more. Yes, it was a fun and entertaining read. Yes, there was banter and jokes galore that had me chuckling! Yes, I was kinda wishing I could REALLY see this NSFW blog post — I mean really I am ONLY curious for the artistic value of it, HONEST! 😉 But there was also heart and feeling and emotion behind it. I adored and fell hard for the characters. I wanted to be friends with them and hang with them. And I was truly impressed with the writing. It was seamless. If I hadn’t seen on the cover that it was a co-authored book, I would never in a million years have guessed that this book had two different voices behind it.

I definitely recommend this read. This is one that will brighten your day!

I received a complimentary copy of All About the D.

Lex Martin

Lex writes contemporary romance, the sexy kind with lotsa angst, a whole lotta kissing, and the hot happily ever afters. When she’s not writing, she lives a parallel life as an English teacher.

She loves printing black and white photos, listening to music on vinyl, and getting lost in a great book. Bitten by wanderlust, she’s  lived all over the country but currently resides in the City of Angels with her husband and twin daughters.

Lex is represented by Kimberly Brower of Brower Literary & Management.

Leslie McAdam

Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement.

Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
