CAN’T FIGHT THIS FEELING by Miranda Liasson #TeaserTuesday @TastyBookTours @mirandaliasson

CAN’T FIGHT THIS FEELING
Spikonos Brothers #2
Miranda Liasson
Releasing March 7th, 2017

 

SHE WANTS TO MOVE ON…WITH SOMEONE
BLAND AND BORING…
 
Widowed
psychologist Maggie McShae is ready to find someone who won’t make her heart
beat fast, her knees grow weak, or make her feel hot and cold at the same time.
No one she can really love, because love brings too much pain.
 
Drew
Poulos, son of a billionaire, is hiding out in Mirror Lake, working at his
brothers’ brandy company. He inspires those very feelings Maggie’s determined
to avoid. The hunky businessman, who left his high society bride at the altar,
is the last person she’d ever seriously date…but he might just
be perfect for a fling…
 
HE NEEDS A DATE FOR HIS BROTHER’S
WEDDING…WITH SOMEONE WHO CAN CALM HIS QUIRKY FAMILY…
 
Drew’s too
heartbroken to ever trust any woman again, but the sexy psychologist is the
perfect person to deflect his family’s attention as his brother marries the woman
Drew once thought was his.
 As
sparks fly, two injured hearts might just find that true love can be even
better the second time around….

 

He got in her face. And oh, those big brown intelligent eyes
up close, those chiseled cheekbones, so much more defined than her own, which really
were such a waste on a man. That thick, pitch-black hair, so thick a woman’s
fingers could get lost in there.
She tried to back up a step, but he moved forward. “Maybe.
Let’s start by being honest with each other. Do you want me, Maggie?”
“We’re not talking about—that. Back off already.” She pushed
on his chest a little. A mistake. Because it was hard as boulders and made her
knees go weak. “Besides, you just—flinched when I touched you.”
“I think we need to do what you said, talk about it. I
flinched because I felt what I think you feel too. That there’s something going
on between us. What are we going to do about it?”
She flipped her hand dismissively. “It’s all that
touchy-feely stuff we’re doing in front of your family. That has to stop.”
“This has nothing to do with playacting,” he said quietly.
“And I think you know that. “That kiss on the court… It was real.”
“That kiss was…impulsive. Heat of the moment, fueled by our
hard-won victory.” Joking now was not stopping the shivers that were running up
and down her arms. Or the hot and cold coursing through her veins. Somehow, she
sensed how it would be between them. Wild. No holds barred. And God help her,
she wanted that.
She tried to pull some common sense out of her sex-addled
brain. It would be a very bad idea on both their parts to forget their troubles
with a sweaty round of sex, wouldn’t it?

 

Miranda Liasson loves to write
stories about everyday people who find love despite themselves, because there’s
nothing like a great love story. And if there are a few laughs along the way,
even better! She’s a former Golden Heart winner who writes contemporary romance
for Montlake Romance, Entangled, and soon for Grand Central. She lives in the
Midwest with her husband, three kids, and Posey, a rescue cat with attitude.

Book Review: SWEET SOUTHERN HEARTS by Susan Schild #BookReview @TastyBookTours @susan_schild

a
humorous, heartwarming story of 

new beginnings, do-overs, and self-discovery… 

 

SWEET SOUTHERN HEARTS
Willow Hill Series #3
Susan Schild
Releasing Jan 10th, 2017
Lyrical Press

 

Susan
Schild welcomes you back to the offbeat Southern town of Willow Hill, North
Carolina, for a humorous, heartwarming story of new beginnings, do-overs, and
self-discovery…
 
When it comes to marriage, third time’s the charm for Linny Taylor. She’s
thrilled to be on her honeymoon with Jack Avery, Willow Hill’s handsome
veterinarian. But just like the hair-raising white water rafting trip Jack persuades
her to take, newlywed life has plenty of dips and bumps.Jack’s twelve-year-old son is resisting all Linny’s efforts to be the perfect
stepmother, while her own mother, Dottie, begs her to tag along on the first
week of a free-wheeling RV adventure. Who knew women “of a certain age” could
drum up so much trouble? No sooner is Linny sighing with relief at being back
home than she’s helping her frazzled sister with a new baby…and dealing with an
unexpected legacy from her late ex. Life is fuller—and richer—than she ever
imagined, but if there’s one thing Linny’s learned by now, it’s that there’s
always room for another sweet surprise…

This charming and well observed novel about finding the courage to love
after loss will make you smile as well as cry more than a few happy
tears.  Be prepared for a story of true tenderness, humor, and sometimes
nail biting tension. Sweet Southern Hearts delivers all this
and more.” –Holly Chamberlin, author of Summer with my Sisters

I absolutely love this story. I love how the author developed the characters. When reading this story, I can just see it in my mind. I like to be able to picture the story in my mind while reading.
The story involves Linny who just married Jack and are on their honeymoon. Which didn’t last because they were needed back home. Jack has a 12-year-old son and he was having a crisis. During this book Linny had to learn how to deal with a 12-year-old stepson. She has no children of her own.
Then there is Linny’s Mom, her Mom, she is a very interesting character. Well her and her friends (her friends are also very lively and have lots of character) are going on an RV trip, of course they have never driven an RV so they get Linny to come along ( Linny has never driven an RV). Leaving her husband to deal with his son and X-wife.
I really love how this story read. I wasn’t bored with the story and really enjoyed all the plot twist and different things going on. This story is not just a basic book but a fun, romantic, adventure and a mystery all in one book. I am hoping for a 4th book in this series. I have read the first book and haven’t read the second book yet. You could read this book without reading the first two books but I recommend that you would them all.
I want to thank Tasty Book Tours, the Author Susan Schild and Netgalley for letting me read this fun story.
I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else’s.

NOVA by Rebecca Yarros #ReleaseBlast @TastyBookTours @RebeccaYarros @EntangledPub

The only heart he wants is the one he already broke…
NOVA
The Renegades #2
Rebecca Yarros
Releasing February 20th, 2017
Entangled Embrace

 

The only heart he wants is the one
he already broke…


He’s
Landon Rhodes.
The
Renegade they call Nova.
Sinfully
gorgeous, broody, tatted-up, professional snowboarder.
Four-time
X Games medalist—
Full-time
heartbreaker.
They say a girl broke him once—
That’s why he’s so reckless, so
driven, so careless with his conquests.
But I’m
that girl.
They can
call me his curse all they want.
He and I
both know the truth—
He’s the
one who destroyed me,
And I’m
not the sucker who will let that happen again.


***NOVA can be read as a
standalone***  

“How many have there been, Landon? How many memories are in your bed nowadays?” She forged on ahead, her eyes glossing over with a layer of what I was hesitant to call tears. “Can you remember them all?”

Heat rushed through my veins, a nauseating mixture of anger, shame, and the bitter taste of regret. My brain screamed at me to retreat and lick my wounds, to try again with her when she wasn’t on offense.

My heart reminded me that I was going to have to fight for this woman with every weapon in my arsenal if I wanted her.

And damn, I wanted her. Craved her. Needed her.

She was the only one I’d ever felt connected to—the only one my heart woke up and shook off the ice for. The only woman who challenged me and took me down in the process.

I stepped forward and clamped both of my hands on the table, boxing her between my arms. She craned her head to keep my gaze, unwilling to back down. It was the quality that both frustrated the hell out of me and turned me on faster than anything—her constant refusal to yield for just a fucking second.
 “Can I remember them all? Probably not.”

She snorted.

“You want to know why?” I didn’t wait for her to answer. “Because blonde, redhead, brunette—I saw their features for a millisecond. The moment I had one of them in my bed, they all had eyes the color of dark chocolate and hair so black it was almost blue…” I glanced at her hair. “Or purple. I never needed to remember them, because they were always you.”

“Don’t say things like that,” she begged. As if I could physically see her walls start to crumble, she softened. “You don’t get to say things like that to me. Not anymore.

Weddings, Crushes, and other Dramas by Emily McKay #BookTour @chapterxchapter, @Emily_Mc_Kay @EntangledTeen

 

Weddings, Crushes, and Other Dramas (Creative HeArts #6, Willa & Finn #2) by Emily McKay

Publication Date: February 13, 2017

Publisher:  Entangled Teen Crush

 

Falling in love with the best man wasn’t on the program.

Willa is happy to be the maid of honor in her dad’s upcoming wedding to uber-celeb Mia McCain. Not as happy about the best man being her soon-to-be stepbrother, the infuriating—and infuriatingly gorgeous—Finn McCain. Every time their paths cross, the attraction simmering between them grows a little harder to ignore. Willa knows all about guys like Finn—they only want what they can’t have. What’s between them isn’t real.

Finn has never felt anything more real than what’s developing between him and Willa. Sure, her dad warned him to steer clear, but it’s not just about forbidden temptation. He’s determined to prove to Willa he’s not going anywhere—and that happily-ever-after will always be worth the risk.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a wedding so crazy it’ll make you laugh, a stepbrother so hot he’ll make you swoon, and a heroine so real she’ll make you cry.

Other book in the series

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains an unbelievably hot bad boy, an unbelievably famous actress, and all the drama that comes with adding both to your family. Oh, and a forbidden flirtation with a soon-to-be stepbrother.

When Willa Schofer’s father comes home from a business trip with an über-famous new fiancée, Willa’s senior year blows up in paparazzi-fueled flames. Overnight, she has a new house, a new car, and a new soon-to-be stepbrother—the unbelievably hot, unbelievably arrogant, Finn McCain. Thank god he’s constantly pushing her buttons, or she might do something irresponsible. Like fall for the jerk.

Just when Willa’s decided to avoid him for, oh, ever, Finn lands in the center of her senior project team. Seriously—how hard is it to shake a guy? At least her work on the project snagged the attention of the (second) hottest guy in school. He might only be into her because of her famous stepmom, and he’s not quite as exciting as a certain annoying housemate, but at least she’s allowed to crush on the guy.

Because crushing on your annoying stepbrother? So not cool.

amazon

Praise for the Book

Booklist (starred review)

“At its core, this is a romance, with all the push and pull that goes along with impossible love, and Little elevates the story by creating a perilous landscape, both outward and inward, as Jayden must deal with the hardship of desert life as well as her own desires. . . descriptions of the landscape are evocative in both desolation and in beauty. Just as good is the pacing, which gets the blood pumping for both characters and readers. This will heighten anticipation for a no-doubt exciting conclusion.”

Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Rich historical details are deftly woven into Jayden’s narration, and the dynamics of Jayden’s tribe are vividly drawn. Jayden’s story becomes as much about finding herself as it is about finding love.”

Reader: “This book took my breath away. I loved the immersive story and the rich setting of ancient Mesopotamia. The customs, traditions, and beliefs of the desert people were captivating and every time I set the book down I couldn’t wait to pick it up again. I’ve never read anything like this before.”

Reader: “Forbidden was so captivating that I awoke early in the morning, while my family was still sleeping, so I could finish the last pages of this beautifully haunting tale.”

 

Excerpt

My sister laid the tablet in her lap, running a finger along the symbols with affection.

“To Jayden, daughter of the Nephish

From Aliyah, Goddess of Sariba

The Goddess and High Priestess of Sariba officially invite you to witness the summer solstice sacrifice in two day’s time. It will be a night you will remember for the rest of your life. A permanent kinship with the Goddess will bless you and your family forever.”

“She sent an invitation to watch Sahmril sacrificed!” Grabbing the tablet, I threw it across the room where it hit the corner of a table and broke into pieces.

With a shriek, Leila staggered off the chair and crawled across the floor. Picking up the shards, she cradled them in her hands, trying to fit them together.

“Leila, what is wrong with you? How could you bring this despicable letter to me?”

She raised her eyes to mine. “You’ve been invited as a special guest because our little sister has been chosen to honor the Goddess. Her sacrifice will bring peace and love to this land. She is the pure vessel. We’re so lucky to have found her.”

“Lucky?” I echoed. The nonchalance manner in which she spoke was horrifying. “Our sister was hunted down for the express purpose of sacrificing her to the goddess.”
