Whatever force made Lucky, either God or the Universe, wrapped him so tightly around my heart that sometimes I’m suffocating.

Biologically, we are made of too many similar parts, yet our chemistry is like a meteor shower, raining bright sparks of light into the dark night.

But it’s not our biology or chemistry that worries me the most, it’s the physics of our love that goes against the cosmos.

Belén: I’ve loved Luciano ever since I can remember, desired him before I even knew what it meant. He’s always been the only man in my life—my constant protector, and his rejection only intensifies my need.

Luciano: I’ve never known a love more fierce than the one I feel for Belén. But I force myself to deny her no matter how much it hurts.

Our love is a sickness and both of us are infected.

Because there’s no cure for being from the same family.

Can a Mermaid find love under the sea?

Aria—I teach mermaid fitness at a ritzy hotel next to the Naval Amphibious Base. I know better than to let one of those famous frogmen chase my tail. But in a moment of weakness, I submit to Erik, a tattooed badass Navy SEAL. After one night of incredible passion, I can’t stop thinking about his cocky ways and his dirty mouth.

Then I get the opportunity to train to be the first female Navy SEAL.

When I show up on the first day of training, I’m horrified to realize that Erik is my BUD/S instructor. He’s the only person who stands in the way of me achieving my dream.

I’m no quitter. He can taunt me, tease me, and run me ragged, but I’ll never ring that bell.

Erik—Aria is the most incredible woman I’ve ever met. She won the gold medal for synchronized swimming and she looks like a little mermaid the way she moves underwater. Once I find out that the sexy redhead is teaching aquatic classes next to my base, I vow to do anything to make her mine.

After our mind-blowing night together, she vanishes. I ask around and learn she went away to train. I assume it’s for another synchro competition.

I’m dead wrong.

She shows up in BUD/S as part of the first class to let in women. I’m head instructor of Phase One, and there’s no way in hell I will lower the standards of my Team to please the brass and make a political statement.

It doesn’t matter how much I want her because she’s forbidden to me now. I’m the teacher and she’s my student. She will obey my every command.

She can try to pass hell week but she will fail.

I’m a Navy SEAL, a Triton, a god of the sea.

And she will never be part of my world.

Within Six Months (A Wild Roses Novel) by Cleo Scornavacca @cleoscornavacca @BuoniAmiciPress

Title: Within Six Months (A Wild Roses Novel)
Author: Cleo Scornavacca
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: TBC
Cover Designer: Stephanie Hobbs at Steph’s Cover Design
Photographer: Michael Reh at Michael Reh Photography
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Time…escaping his past, struggling with the present, looking towards his future.
Time… a gift, precious, fleeting, ever-changing, moving quickly…too quickly, especially for a man searching for the woman of his dreams.
That’s exactly how photographer Tommy Conte decided he would begin his new life. He left everything he knew behind in search of something special…someone special. His plan was clear. He would move to the beach, renovate an old shore house and find the woman that he would ultimately marry…all within six months.
Was he delusional? Perhaps…yet after everything that had gone on in his life the last few years, he had to take that chance.
Then… as luck would have it, he met Jade Stanton, his new neighbor. Tommy was immediately drawn to her. He wanted and needed to know more.
Perfect right? Wrong…
There was one small problem. Jade wasn’t looking for a long-term relationship like Tommy was. She was done…over it. She swore off anything serious with any man that came her way…until she was backed into a corner and Tommy came to her rescue.
He pretended to be her boyfriend…for just one evening.
It was simple, no strings attached. It was only one night, or so she thought.
Due to circumstances beyond her control, Jade needed Tommy to play his part for a little while longer. She didn’t think it would be a problem. Tommy was fine with it and they both knew it was all just an act. Yet, Jade came to realize the more she pretended, the more she couldn’t deny that she was falling for him. Although she didn’t want Tommy to find out, Tommy knew better; he felt it too.
Tommy realized that the girl he had dreamed of was right there in front of him; and the life he wanted to share with her was finally within his grasp. He decided he couldn’t let her slip away. He wouldn’t leave it up to fate. He had to try, but Tommy also knew it wouldn’t be easy. Actually, it would be the hardest thing he ever had to do…prove to Jade that she could trust him enough to love him, as much as he loved her.

Jemma, Entertainment with Jem, Book 1 by Clarissa Carlyle #BookReview @ClarissaCarlyle

Jemma, Entertainment with Jem, Book 1

by Clarissa Carlyle

Blurb

Jemma Larson knows tough times. She’s been raising her baby brother ever since her parents perished in a car crash. As the owner of the popular blog, Entertainment with Jem, she has been using the income from her blog to keep them both fed and a roof over their heads. Now her blog’s income is declining amidst vicious competition. Jemma needs to do something desperate to be able to feed and take care of herself and her little brother before Social Services comes calling again. Her greatest fear- having her beloved little brother taken from her. Jemma will do anything to prevent that. Even if it means going out on a limb with her blog.

Reading about new reality TV show heartthrob, Daniel Starke, an opportunity presents itself to get an exclusive interview with him. She knows this will boost her blog’s readership and income. But everything she’s read in the press about Daniel has him painted as a womanizing, self-centered jerk. Pushed to pay her bills, she agrees to the interview.

At their meeting, she realizes that Daniel is nothing like she expected- and sparks fly! Normally shy Jemma is now thrust into the spotlight. But nothing in the entertainment world as it seems, as Jemma is about to find out.

* This book contains some adult situations. 18+, mature audiences recommended.

 

My Review

When I saw the name of the book: Jemma 1: Entertainment with Jem, Book 1 by Clarissa Carlyle I was intrigued.

 

Then I read the blurb about Jemma being a blogger an entertainment blogger, something that has always intrigued but I have never done an entertainment blog. I have a book review blog, but I don’t do entertainment.

I really like how the author built the characters, Jemma, the blogger, her little brother Robbie who she is responsible for, her friend Maya and the heartthrob Daniel Starke. Of course, there are more characters but these four were pretty much the main ones for me.

I thought the story started out fast, didn’t take long to understand the story and to be hooked. There is lots of drama, Jemma is trying to make a living blogging and has done good enough but of course wants better. She gets a chance to interview the star of a Reality TV show.  She is excited to do the interview, but, Jemma is pretty shy and quiet, doesn’t like to cause a scene or even be in the middle of any drama, she just wants to do her blog.  Of course, that can’t happen, come on, we have a reality tv star Daniel Starke who is hot and everyone wants a piece of him. Nothing can go smoothly.

I will say that I really enjoyed reading this first book. I loved the authors style and she didn’t leave anything out. The story went smoothly. Easy to read and understand the characters. After I read the first book I had to read the second and am working on the whole series. This book was a fun book to read.

 

Purchase on Amazon  

 

I advise to purchase the whole set if you like reading the first book.
