The Cover: I am in love with Strong Enough's cover and holy cow it is STEAMY. Like wow I am kind of blushing and embarrassed but I think the cover is amazing kind of way! I honestly wasn't expecting a cover like this but I love it. A+

Basics: Strong Enough was released on June 19th 2017, published by MH Publishing and is  276 pages long. Genre wise Strong Enough is M/M romance, contemporary romance and standalone. 

Description: I wasn’t looking for Derek Wolfe.
I wasn’t looking for anybody. All I wanted was to start a new life in America. But when I found myself stranded here with no place to go, he came to my rescue, offering me a place to stay.
He’s smart, successful, and sexy as hell—I can barely sleep knowing he’s right down the hall. And when the chemistry between us explodes one night with fierce, fiery passion, it’s hard to deny there’s something real between us.
But he does.
He says he was drunk. He says it was a one-time thing. He says he’s not into guys and what we did meant nothing.
He’s lying. Because it happened again, and again, and again. And it’s better every time.
I know we could be good together, and I want the chance to try, but I’m done hiding. If he’s not strong enough to admit the truth, I’ll have to be strong enough to walk away.
Excerpt:
Figuring I’d had enough booze to blunt his effect on me, I rolled up the sleeves of my black button-down shirt and moved next to him. “I’ll help you.”
“Okay.”
I caught him trying to not to look at my wrists and forearms, and it made me smile. How does it feel to want someone and have to hide it? “You wash, I’ll dry?”
“Sounds good.”
We worked in silence, shoulder to shoulder, and I found myself increasingly—and disturbingly—pleased at the thought of him being attracted to me and being forced to conceal it. It was fucking horrible of me to take pleasure in his discomfort, but I liked being secretly wanted. Being illicitly desired. Being the object of his covert glances and maybe even his darkest, dirtiest thoughts. I let our arms touch more than necessary, as thrilled by the physical contact as I was by the thought of what it might be doing to him.
For there is no man who does not sin.
My dick started to get hard, clearly unbothered by the whiskey that was breaking down my inhibitions, pushing past all my defenses, and letting my imagination run wild.
What’s in that gorgeous head of yours, Maxim? What’s behind those cobalt eyes? What would you do to me, if I let you? What would you let me do to you?
“Carolyn is so nice,” he said, handing me the last serving dish left to be dried.
What? He was thinking about Carolyn right now? He wasn’t supposed to be thinking about Carolyn—I was, goddammit!
But I wasn’t. “Yeah.”
He turned off the water. Rested his wet hands on the edge of the sink. “I didn’t realize you had a girlfriend.”
And I heard it in his voice—the slightest edge of jealousy, so faint I might never have noticed it had I not been so hyperaware of everything about him right now. I fucking loved it.
“She’s not my girlfriend.”
“Oh.” Now there was confusion. “I guess I misunderstood.”
“She wants to be my girlfriend.”
Silence.
Of course there was silence. Maxim would never ask what the problem was. But I wanted to tell him. I wanted him to know. I wanted to share the impossible longing I felt with one person who might understand it.
“The problem is me.”
He was completely still. Before I could stop myself, I covered his right hand with my left. “Sometimes I don’t know what I want.”
He yanked his hand from beneath mine and we faced each other.
For the first time tonight, I looked him right in the eye. Nothing around us existed for me anymore. I heard only his breath. Smelled only his skin. Saw only his guarded expression.
I had to have him.Displaying SBPR-MHDR-SE-teaser2.png
Overall thoughts: Strong Enough is my first M/M romance book I am reviewing so I'm excited to share my thoughts with you guys! I really loved Derek and Maxim, their story and their personalities were great. I find same sex relationships fascinating because they struggle with so much and honestly, fictional or not I just want people to be happy with whoever they love. So reading about Derek struggling with his sexual identity and attraction for Maxim was really moving for me. No one should feel ashamed of themselves when it comes to wanting to be with someone and I thought Maxim and Derek's story was very heartwarming and sweet. I also enjoyed the fact that both men were obviously attracted to one another but their relationship didn't happen right away, it was built up throughout the entire book and I really appreciated the realistic vibe about it. Strong Enough was really well done and I look forward to more books from both authors. Highly recommend this read guys! 

Couple Chemistry Rating: 5/5 Shells

Favorite Quotes: "I wasn't expecting him at all. I wasn't expecting any of it." -Derek

"It was madness inside me. The way I wanted him. The way I needed him." -Derek

"We were not a very likely love story." "We were better than that. We were a real love story, and those never end." -Maxim and Derek.

Cover Reveal: The Bars Between Us by A.S. Teague!

Today we have the gorgeous cover reveal for The Bars Between Us by A.S. Teague!! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy July 20th!!
Displaying The Bars Between Us Ebook FINAL.jpg
Title: The Bars Between Us
Author: A.S. Teague
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 20th
About The Bars Between Us:
I don’t have a damn thing in common with the beautiful rich girl who walks in to my bar. She’s southern class, fancy cars, and designer shoes.
I’ve got a drunk for a mother, a cheater for a father, and a reputation for trouble I’ve more than earned.
I look the other way, pretending I don’t notice how perfect she is. She wouldn’t give me the time of day anyway. Until she shatters that first impression and shows me she’s so much more––everything I never thought I deserved.
After a lifetime of being a disappointment, I want to prove to her that I’m better than my past.
We have one tragic thing in common, and the thread that binds us together will tear us apart as it unravels.
Are we strong enough to break through the Bars Between Us? 

Exclusive Excerpt:
Parked beside my car is a truck that’s got to be twice as old as I am and looks like it should have been buried long ago.  
Bronn hooks a thumb in the rust bucket’s direction and tells me, “Bessie’s seen better days, but I just can’t bring myself to put her out to pasture.”
I pull my door open and toss my purse inside, before turning to face him. “Bessie, huh?”
He props a hip on her front fender. “Belonged to my dad. When he died, Dani’s mom kept her. Gave her to me.”
His face is relaxed, but the pain of his loss is still in his eyes, and I’ve come to notice that it’s a look that’s always there.  Even when he’s laughing, it doesn’t erase the perpetual sadness that he carries with him.  It’s a sadness that I carry with me as well.
“When I was a kid, my dad took me to the beach once.”
Bronn’s brows knit and I hurry to continue my story. “It was cold that morning, early spring, the breeze causing goosebumps to take up permanent residence on my arms. I remember Daddy taking his sweat shirt off and putting it on me. The thing swamped me.” I pause and laugh, remembering how the arms of the hoodie had drug the ground and how daddy had belly laughed at the sight before rolling them up. “Anyway, we searched for shark’s teeth that morning.  It was too cold to swim, too cold to play in the sand. But I’d had a fascination with the predators of the sea, a newfound one, and Daddy had been determined that we were going to find a great white’s full jaw, I think.” I’d been staring up at the sky, but I glanced at Bronn to see his face rapt with attention, his expression intense. “We looked and looked until my eyes went cross. But, we didn’t have any luck.”
I can’t tear my gaze away from Bronn’s, even though the way he’s studying me is a little unnerving.  
“We found all kinds of amazing shells, rocks that were smooth from being tumbled by the waves, crab shells that must have been eaten by gulls. But nothing that came from Jaw’s mouth.” I shrug, and smile. Bronn smiles back. His face finally relaxes, but his eyes are still full of emotion.
“I remember Daddy was so disappointed. But I wasn’t. I’d spent the morning with my favorite person in the world. I may have been freezing the whole time, my face chapped from with wind and sand whipping in it, my hair a tangled mess that took mama an hour to brush, but it was the best day.”
The half-smile that I’d been sporting while lost in the memory fades. “That was my last happy memory with him. He died not long after that.” I swallow hard, determined not to cry.
The memory is bittersweet, but it’s still sweet. That’s the thing about memories. The same exact memory can be happy or sad, depending on how you choose to remember it. And I choose to remember the sheer joy I’d felt that day, not the crushing sadness that it was the last time I’d felt that way.
I clear the emotion from my throat. “Anyway, I don’t know why I shared that. Just, maybe, to tell you, that I understand holding on to something because it has sentimental value.” I nod at his truck, “Bessie may not be worth any money, but she’s worth her weight in gold if she makes you happy.”
My lips quiver as I offer a smile. Bronn may think that we come from different worlds, and maybe we do.  Nana would have killed me dead if I had ever come home from a date in a truck like his.  But there’s sadness and loss everywhere, no matter how much money you have. And that common thread binds us together, whether Bronn realizes it or not.

Release Blitz & Review: Tycoon by Katy Evans

Tycoon by Katy Evans
Publication Date: June 20th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Displaying Tycoon Amazon.jpg
Tycoon, an all-new standalone from Katy Evans is LIVE!!!

The Cover: I am a big fan of Katy Evans, this is no secret if you've read my reviews before or visited this blog. So I've read all of her books but the cover of Tycoon is my favorite. There is just something about Chad Hurst (the cover model) and the look he gives the reader that is just like: "wow...he can see directly into my soul." I am SO PICKY about book covers Tycoon is my absolutely favorite and it might actually be my favorite book cover of all time. A+++++

Basics: Tycoon was released on June 20th, 2017 and is 252 pages long. Genre wise Tycoon is contemporary romance, standalone and childhood romance. 

Description: He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.
Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.
That man is gone.
In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.
He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.
The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.
It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.
I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.
And he doesn’t.
Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.
Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.
He's assessing every piece of me, to the point I've never felt so bare.
I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.
Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.
Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.
Overall thoughts: Yay for Katy Evans first standalone book! I loved Tycoon! I always think it's important for authors to try and connect with their readers and I definitely got that vibe from Tycoon. I think everyone can say that they loved someone when they were young or care deeply about someone. Maybe you are with that person right, maybe you aren't...but there is a time in your life where you stop, take a look back and think what if? I really like exploring that type of romance narrative and I really enjoyed Aaric and Bryn's story. Aaric is the perfect leading guy; although he didn't have as much chapters compared to Bryn's, I loved reading about his thoughts and feelings. Men are SO different than women so I really appreciate when an author writes from their POV. 

Bryan is a kick ass woman who is driven, sassy and everything I want to be when I'm 29/30! I loved the dynamic between these two, the push and pull of will they, won't they? I'm actually quite sad that Tycoon was a standalone because I want more of Aaric and Bryn! That is my constant issue with standalones haha! But all in all, I loved Tycoon and I think it was a great nicely wrapped present Katy Evans has given us at the start of the summer! I can guarantee that Tycoon will either win best cover of the year or be in my top ten reads of 2017. 

Couple Chemistry Rating: 5/5 Shells

Favorite Quotes: "You play the game well." 
"It's never been a game with you." - Aaric & Bryn

"You want me." "I..."
"It's okay, I want you too." -Aaric & Bryn 

"Bryn, I see my future in your eyes." -Aaric

Teaser: Regret by Rachel Van Dyken

Displaying Steal-Teaser1.jpg
Steal, an all-new sexy standalone from #1 New York Times Bestseller Rachel Van Dyken is coming July 3rd!!

Steal, the follow-up standalone rockstar romance to the #1 NYT Bestseller Keep…
It's easy to lose yourself in someone you love.
Easier to lose yourself in someone you hate…
I didn't think it could get any worse than having to babysit a bunch of spoiled musicians on set — keeping them out of trouble is a cakewalk compared to seeing my ex every day.
Seaside, Oregon isn't big enough for the both of us.
She hates me.
I loathe her.
The plan was simple — stay the hell away and make sure she gets to set on time.
What I didn't expect was to be faced with our past in front of an audience — and be forced to face it again.
It's torture.
The way she looks at me.
The way I try to look through her.
Words left unsaid.
The lingering aftermath still as powerful as ever.
I feed the chasm between us, for fear that she'll make me feel again — and steal the last shred of heart I have left.
We have everything but each other.
It's not enough.
Not when you've lost love.
And replaced it with the only thing left — hate.
