The Second Coming | Cover reveal



Title: The Second Coming
Series: Rogue Academy #1
Author bio: Carrie Aarons
Release date: 2 June 2019 

Synopsis
They call him the second coming.
Of honor for British football.
Of God in an athlete’s body.
Of every English woman’s fantasy.

Jude Davies is my country’s prodigy on the pitch. More famous than the nobility in Buckingham Palace, he and his merry band of scoundrels rule the Rogue Football Academy and the London nightlife scene alike.

And now, he’s aiming his well-honed set of skills directly at me. His devilish charm is lethal, but with the tragic hand life has dealt me, distractions like him aren’t an option.

Plus, we’re only playing a game. One of convenience, where he needs me to save his reputation, and I need his money to save the one person I love.

Until he wraps me around that immoral finger.
Until I crave that reckless, wild high he provides.
Until I hope for a future that will never happen.

 That’s the thing about going toe-to-toe with the next football legend. He’s faster, stronger, and will destroy me every time.

Wicked Games | Cover reveal

Title: Wicked Games
Authors: Vivian Wood & Amelia Wilde
Genre: New Adult Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Cassie Chapman, Opulent Designs
Release Date: June 4, 2019

Synopsis

A secret society. 
A forbidden crush. 
And an unsolved murder... 

Emily Danes expected the tough classes at Campbell College, one of the most exclusive and prestigious universities in the world. She expected the ivy-covered halls. She expected the money.

She didn’t see Wolf Astor coming.

Obscenely wealthy, socially connected, and heart-stoppingly gorgeous, he’s everything she ever dreamed of in a man.

He’s also a total prick.

But at a place like Campbell College, there’s no escape. Not from Wolf, and not from the secrets hidden behind the graceful facades of the campus.

With every day that passes, she’s drawn deeper into the underbelly of the wealthy and privileged at Campbell: a secret society known as the Skulls & Thorns.

And with a murderer loose on campus, she’s running out of time to escape.

Excerpt
Pulling my two heavy textbooks for this class out of the stack too, I arrange everything nicely. Just as I am getting my brand new pencils ready, I am startled by a loud bang. My desk mate drops his books on the countertop and sits down, looking at me askance.
I startle to realize that it’s the blond Greek god I ran from only yesterday. Tall and broad-shouldered, he wears his black denim and dark blue tee shirt incredibly well. He knows it too, judging by his posture. He perches on his stool and crosses his arms, expectant. Perfectly unkempt sandy blond hair, dark brows spread wide over the darkest blue eyes I’ve ever seen, a patrician nose, two incredible cheekbones, and the most expressive lips…
This guy is fucking hot, excuse my French.
Which are currently smirking at me. I knew hot guys back home in Prineville. Mostly I avoided them, truth be told. But this guy is on another level. He is so dazzling that he could work in television… and bad tv just so happens to be my weakness.
 Being around this guy is enough to make me rethink the bright yellow tee shirt dress I am wearing. I want more than anything to tug the hem down and smooth my hands over my black tights, but I don’t.
Instead I blush, fumbling to introduce myself. Sticking my hand straight out and tossing my messy blonde hair back, I try for an authoritative voice. “I’m Emily Danes.”
At the front of the classroom, the professor clears his throat, ready to start talking. My eyes dart to him, but then he reaches for his bunch of tissues again. Glancing back to my partner, I see him eye me up and down in a totally unsubtle way.
At last, he leans forward and shakes my hand. His skin against mine is hot. I bite my lip, refusing to let a little thing like instant animal attraction do me in.
“I’m Wolf,” he says, his voice low and gravelly. He looks me over once more.
Then he arches a brow, his smirk deepening. “Did you find all of your panties last night?”
My cheeks instantly go the exact color of a ripe tomato. I lick my lips and frown. What am I supposed to say to that?

Spark | Review

Title: Spark
Series: Academy of Unpredictable Magic #1
Author: Sadie Moss
Pages: 208 pages
Version: Ebook (ARC)
Release date: 16 May 2019
Rating: ★★★★★

Synopsis

Magic exists. I know – it’s in my blood.

Unfortunately, not all people from magical bloodlines have powers, and at 22, I’m several years past the age they usually appear. So I’ve resigned myself to a boring, magic-less life.

Then something strange happens…

I get stuck in the middle of a bar fight, and instead of just punching the guy back, I blow a hole in the wall.

So… I guess I do have powers. But they’re unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. This shit is definitely not normal.

And it seems the magical authorities agree, because they give me a choice: either I go to school to learn to control my crazy new magic, or they’ll take it away. Permanently.

Now if I can just survive the bitchy mean girls determined to take me down a peg, the mysterious attacks on students, the three hot-as-hell guys who don’t seem turned off by my prickly exterior, and the professor who makes me long for detention, maybe I’ll get out of here in one piece.

Wouldn’t bet on it though. Welcome to the Academy of Unpredictable Magic.

Spark is the first book in the Academy of Unpredictable Magic series, a medium-burn reverse harem story intended for ages 18+, featuring a badass chick and the four sexy men who fall in love with her.



Review

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Sadie Moss!

Spark is the first book in the Reverse Harem series called Academy of Unpredictable Magic. Spark tells the story of Elliot and her four handsome men.

Spark is yet another amazing book by Sadie Moss. I loved her The Last Shifter series so when I got the opportunity to read the first book in her new series, I was so excited! This book series is another Reverse Harem series, and I just love it. I discovered this genre because of Sadie Moss, and it’s definitely one of my favourite Romance genres.

I love all 4 guys in Spark. They’re all so different, and I’m such a sucker for teacher/student relationships. And all the other guys are so lovable! The main character is such a strong character because she can take care of herself. She isn’t used to people taking care of her, so it’s fun to read about her and the guys.

I really love the concept of this new series, it’s a different kind of magic and I like that there are these schools for each type of magic. I really loved Spark and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!!!

Wrong Bed, Right Girl | Review

Title: Wrong Bed, Right Girl
Series: Accidental Love #2
Author: Rebecca Brooks
Pages: 256 pages
Version: Ebook (ARC)
Publisher: Entangled Brazen
Release date: 13 May 2019
Rating: ★★★★★ 
4.5/5*

Synopsis

Falling head-first into the wrong woman’s bed was not how Reed Bishop’s night was supposed to go. Now a gorgeous, half-naked ballet dancer was threatening his manhood…with a book. He can’t blame her. It wasn’t how it seemed – he was just doing his job, tracking down his lead informant, who, unfortunately, took off, leaving him to figure out what to do with her friend. Staying in her apartment was no longer safe. And that’s how he got himself into this mess.

Now she’s sleeping in his bed while he tosses and turns on the couch. There are pink tights in his bathroom. Pointe shoes next to his boots. He swears he won’t touch her like that…but he can’t ignore his fantasies.

As a tattooed, muscled DEA Agent, Reed’s seen some things. Drug dealers, murderers…He can’t let Talia get close. Even though she’s made it clear they’re both fighting the same hunger. And he definitely can’t use his handcuffs on her…no matter how much she begs.  


Review

This book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Entangled Brazen!

Wrong Bed, Right Girl is the second book in the Accidental Love series and tells the story of Talia and Reed. Although Wrong Bed, Right Girl is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone.

Wrong Bed, Right Girl is such a cute Contemporary Romance about two people who accidentally met and fell in love. Wrong Bed, Right Girl was really fast paced and I read this book in one day. This was the first book I’ve read by Rebecca Brooks and this won’t be the last one!

I really liked the characters because they were so different. Talia is a ballerina and says what she thinks and Reed is a DEA Agent who doesn’t use that many words. They’re opposites and that’s why they’re perfect for each other.

Wrong Bed, Right Girl was an amazing Contemporary Romance and I cannot wait to read the first book in the Accidental Love series, Wrong Bed, Right Roommate.
