THE PLAY MATE – A Kendall Ryan Release Blitz

the-play-mate-kendall-ryanSmith Hamilton has it all—he’s smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he’s not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm’s length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she’s blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family’s lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She’s crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie’s plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.

Music Break: Jay Crownover’s HONOR

IMG_8017

I was fortunate enough to win a signed copy of Jay Crownover‘s latest Point Novel HONOR and let me tell you…the chemistry between Nassir and Honor is IN-SANE. Nassir is hands down the HOTTEST devil around.

Immediately reminded of the wicked play that goes on in In This Moment‘s Bones from their Black Widow album.

Tune in while you crack the spine when HONOR comes out NEXT WEEK (Oh my GODS it’s out next week!!). #LOVEISHELL

In Safe Hands – A Katie Ruggle Review

IMG_9029.jpg

**ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review**

Katie Ruggle closes out with a BANG! The Rocky Mountain Search and Rescue has come to a close with In Safe Hands and the action has never been better.

*SPOILER ALERT*

Daisy is agoraphobic after witnessing the death of her mother in a horrible robbery at 16. You’d think that would make for little to no love life. But the deputy that rescued her, Chris Jennings, has become her best friend over the years. And it’s become much more on Daisy’s end right when the murders, fires, and mysteries of this small Colorado mountain town come to a crest and Daisy’s in the crosshairs of the killer.

I have yet to read a book that does such an amazing job as  In Safe Hands when it comes to a budding romance between two best friends. Daisy and Chris have such a wonderful friendship with small nuances of what could be more. Daisy is also this kick-ass fitness guru! I love that Chris has been training her with self defense and that helps to bring in all the girls from the RMS&R crew together. It’s when all the puzzle pieces from each story begin to unfold that they begin to find out that all of their troubles have been related.

When I finished Gone Too Deep, Book 3, I was STUNNED at the ending as to whom the true killer was in this crazy town. Spending this entire book knowing The Sheriff was nerve wracking but in such a delightful way! I love stories that show the other side of the story as far as good-guy / bad-guy. Juggle’s was so carefully planned over 4 stories that it made for one hell of a ride.

Hoping for more soon from Katie Ruggle! Until next time…. Happy Bingeing Beauties!

P.S. George will ALWAYS be my favorite 🙂

#BOOKISHBOX – Outlander Box

OH. MY. GODS.

Y’all this box..I couldn’t even wait to leave the post parking lot to open it! Let’s get to this review!

The shirt quote is, as always with Appraising Pages, perfect and fully embodies Jamie and Claire. I admit I’m a sucker and haven’t finished book 1! I started with the show by watching episode 1 while on vacation with my sister and immediately knew I wanted the books. When I got home i started reading and watching an episode at a time so I was at the same pace. But I stopped right before The Wedding and sometimes…juuuuust sometimes the picture is better than the words because whoo lord those two…. But one day I WILL catch up with the books! For now I’ll settle on watching my Jamie and Claire.

The Lexy Olivia bookmark! I fear I may need to buy this girl out of house and home! Her bookmarks are always my favorite. And I was about to purchase the “Sassenach” one when this came in the mail! Although I’m sure I’ll still buy it… This lovely quote from Jamie will definitely do for now.

The Geeky Caldron‘s beautiful Sassenach bangle is perfect! Silver is my jewelry color and I’m proudly wearing this beauty with the rest of my baubles. From The Page‘s “Claire’s Pressed Flowers” candle smells so pretty! I love lavendar! I’ll need to buy a bigger one soon.

My other favorite piece of this box was the tumbler. The triquetra is one of my own symbols that I resonate with and paired  with Claire’s quote…I’m in awe of how perfect this really is.

“Sometimes I feel very much a stranger in a strange land.”

Shadow Silence – A Yasmine Galenorn Review

IMG_9032.jpg

**ARC Received from NetGalley for an honest review**

Yasmine Galenorn has been one of the most descriptive writers I’ve ever read. Her magical worlds fall off the page and create such beautiful imagery that I always want to jump right into the story.

For the second book in the Whisper Hollow Series, Shadow Silence,  we come back to Kerris Fellwater as a cold winter begins to settle into the town. Everyone knows the towns rules regarding the Lady of the Lake and the victims she claims. But when her best friend, Peggin, is in her clutches, Kerris must do whatever it takes to save her.

Peggin falls under the spell of the Lady and nearly dies multiple times. Kerris is so incredibly intelligent when it comes to putting the puzzle pieces together. A dream that leads to an accident, which then leads to a long dead secret hidden away beneath ANOTHER secret. Peggin was brave in her withstanding to survive the Lady’s curse. And sneaking in the background are the mangy Hounds with whom we may have a major player coming to visit Whisper Hollow soon. CAN’T WAIT!

I absolutely love Kerris Fellwater. I have managed to fall for each character Galenorn has created but Kerris has become my all time favorite. She’s so solidly strong and supportive in her beliefs and values that I find myself wishing to be more like her. The continuing romance between her and her guarding, Bryan was perfectly laid out. How the two discover that they’ve fallen for one another is just beautifully told.

On par with Galenorn and her magnificently terrifying companion: we finally meet Veronica, Queen of the Dead. In what has to be one of THE best sounding introductions EVER. 3 words: THRONE OF BONES. I tend to be wary of these creatures Galenorn’s main characters must partner with and yes Veronica is deadly but I want to see her in all her glory! Hoping there’s more to come with her in the series.

Love love loved getting the chance to review Shadow Silence and can’t wait for more from Yasmine Galenorn in the Whisper Hollow Series!

Until next review…Happy Bingeing Beauties!

#BookishBox – September 2016

img_8971

Hi Beauties! As promised here is the September Bookish Box review. This month’s theme: Literary Ladies!

Lots of little things in this box, but none of them too little to matter! There is a pair of J&CO Jewelry LeviosA earrings. These are b-e-a-utiful!  Perfectly small and matches the Hermione t-shirt from Appraising Pages. Love the red color of this shirt.

IMG_8962.jpg

Bookish Box also included their bookworm highlighter/pen combo and  Matilda quoted sticky notes! Matilda was such a great movie and I remember watching it as a kid many times. There’s also an awesome button magnet from Jar of Button stating “Females are strong as hell”. Boyfriend will have to deal with that on our fridge!

IMG_8960.jpg

The Pride and Prejudice tea from First Edition Tea Co. makes me want to brew a batch and watch Austenland…THAT is a hilarious movie, haven’t read the book yet. I’m loving the Katniss arrow pen and highlighter holder from Nonies Custom Creations; that will definitely be going in my planner!

Lastly..another beautiful watercolor bookmark from Lexy Olivia! This one was actually on my wish list and is from Throne of Glass!

IMG_8961.jpg

Can’t wait for the October box…and I should have a one time box review coming soon!
