This is Chelle Bliss at her best just when you think you have seen the best of the Gallo family she throws you another and this time it’s Angelo’s story and let me tell you it’s the best so far !!!!
This book has all the feels you want in a love story, you will shed some tears you will laugh out loud but you will also end up feeling all fuzzy inside. Angelo is the most amazing Gallo yet he is trying to move on with his life and be the father his kids deserve and there is no room for another woman in his life but that was before Tilly opened her cupcake store next to the bar. Tilly is funny and smart and she is the perfect match for him if he can just leave the past behind. 
I really don’t have the words to describe how this book made me feel and how good this story is so I’m all I’m  going to say that we haven’t got outside January yet but this book will be on my best reads of 2019 so what are you waiting for get your one click finger working and grab a copy of Hook.






I have read many books by Chelle Bliss but Hook is my absolute favourite.

I knew this was going to be an emotional roller coaster of a read when Ms. Bliss had me crying ugly tears within the first few pages and also in the last chapter.

Angelo Gallo is a man who was shattered by the death of his wife; left to raise their two young children with the support of his family.

Tilly's is the new owner of the cupcake shop next door to the Gallo pub; a military widow.

Both of them, have been devastated by the death of their spouses. Can Angelo and Tilly, two broken souls, come together and heal each other?

I have been waiting impatiently for Angelo and Tilly’s story since Chelle Bliss announced it. Have you ever anticipated a book that once received you didn’t want to start because you knew once you finished, you would have a book hangover? 

That’s what happened with Hook. I was completely blown away by the emotions that Ms. Bliss drew out of me. 

My heart broke for both Angelo and Tilly at times and I was so excited when they decided to move forward with their blossoming relationship and fell deeply in love.

I loved how Angelo’s family and Tilly’s brother in law Roger, supported them. Not only are the Gallo men outstanding but so are the women.

I love the Gallo family and when I start a new book it feels like I am coming home. They are all such great characters and Hook is a fantastic example of the love of family and what they will do for each other and those they care about. 

This was a hot, steamy story,full of emotions which will keep you on the edge of your seat. I have a new favourite Gallo.

One click now, you will not be disappointed. Chelle Bliss has another winner on her hands in my opinion.




Hook grabs you so hard from the first page. It will bring tears to your eyes and set you up for an emotional ride from heartbreak to hope. This is such a beautiful story of love and healing for both Angelo and Tilly. It is finally time for each if them to find happiness again. 

The Gallos are an amazing family that are always there for each other whether it is to lift someone up or to push them when they need to see what is right in front of them and they graciously bring others in to be a part of the beauty that they have together.

I’m startled out of my thoughts when my brother jumps up and shouts a bunch of profane nonsense, hands flailing like he’s trying to swim on land, or approximate the chicken dance while on an LSD trip. “You can’t do this! It’s absolute bullshit!” Armstrong yells. I look around the table, trying to piece together what I missed. “I’m sorry, Armstrong. I know this is a shock, but we feel it’s in the company’s best interest to put Lincoln at the helm during this transitional stage,” G-mom says firmly. At the helm? I look to G-mom who’s busy not looking at me. Armstrong jabs at finger at himself. “But I’m the one who’s put in all the time here! I deserve to run the company! Lincoln doesn’t know the first thing about Moorehead. All he knows how to do is dig wells and forage for food in the wilderness. How are those valuable assets here?” He turns his attention to our mother. “Did you know about this? How can you let this happen? Look at him. How can that be the face of our company? He looks like he crawled out of a gutter and mugged a twenty-year-old college kid on a bender. How is this better for our bottom line?” My mother clasps her hands in front of her. “I’m sorry, Armstrong, but this decision wasn’t mine to make. I know this is hard for you, but your grandmother and fath—” Armstrong stomps his foot, exactly as a toddler would. “The company is mine! Lincoln can’t have it!” I raise a hand, half to quiet my brother and also to find out what the freaking deal is. “Whoa, let’s back this bus up. Can someone explain what’s going on?” “You’ve been appointed as the CEO of Moorehead Media, according to the will,” Christophe—no R, because that would make it far too pedestrian a name—my father’s lawyer says. I’m working on trying to remain calm as I address my grandmother. “You didn’t say anything about me being CEO. You said you needed my help.” “Running the company, yes,” she says through a practiced, stiff smile. It’s her warning face, but seriously, when she said she needed my help for a few months I figured it meant I’d be keeping Armstrong in line while she sorted out who was going to take over the company, which I realize now was a stupid assumption. “I didn’t think that meant CEO. How am I going to run a company with this dickhead on staff?” I motion to my brother. “The name calling is unnecessary,” G-mom replies. “Lincoln’s not even part of this family! He hasn’t attended one event in the past five years except for Dad’s funeral. He didn’t bother coming to my wedding and now he’s going to run the company? How is that fair?” I snort. “Your wedding was an expensive joke.” He crosses his arms over his chest. “I was set up. Amalie had cold feet and made me out to look like the bad guy.” The woman beside him shoots him disgusted look. Armstrong clears his throat and tugs at his collar. “My wedding is not the real issue. The point is that you’ve never involved yourself in any part of this family and now you think you can come in and take over. I will not stand by and let this happen!” He keeps jabbing his finger at me, as if he’s engaged in a finger sword fight. I lean back in my chair and lace my fingers behind my neck. Armstrong has always been reactive. And self-absorbed. For a while it seemed like he finally had it together—back when he was engaged. But ever since that fiasco of a wedding he seems to have come completely unglued. Again. But worse this time. “Someone needs a timeout.” ***Please not this is an unedited excerpt and is subject to change.***

Decades ago, ambitious Zack Hayes set his sights on the White House.

Deep in the Heart is the first book that I've read by Alexa Padgett and I absolutely loved it!

I loved Jenna's little sayings that she would spout with her inner monologue. After being shoved into the spotlight for being a survivor, she wants nothing more than to work to her heart's content on making guitars. 

When a country music star comes into her shop to request a new custom guitar, she never expects him to become something more than a customer.

Camden Grace is a beautiful alpha mixture of a war veteran and country music star. His upcoming concert for the armed forces makes him in desperate need for a new guitar and the girl behind the craft has him more than a little intrigued. 

I loved reading the story of these two awesome characters and Jenna's troubles along the way kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I loved the plot twists and loved the character of Jenna's Pop-Pop. I especially love how Camden shows his feelings for Jenna in the end. 

Absolutely amazing read and I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

Blog Tour for Shannyn Schroeder's ONE NIGHT WITH THE MILLIONAIRE

Meet the Author:

Shannyn is an occasional English teacher, who also works as a part-time editor while raising her three kids. Even though she wrote from high school through college (mostly poetry), she’d never considered a career as an author. Writing fell by the wayside as she focused her energy on creating lesson plans and new and fabulous ways to torment her teen students. One group in particular dubbed her “The Torture Master,” a title she carried into motherhood. After the birth of baby number two, Shannyn resigned from teaching and fell in love with reading romance novels. She read so many books so quickly that her husband teased, “If you’re going to read so many damn books, why don’t you just write one?” So she did. That first book is safely buried on her hard drive, but the process set Shannyn on the path to where she is today. The 6-book O’Leary series has wrapped up, as well as 2 Hot & Nerdy new adult trilogies. She’s currently working on her next series. She is recovering from her Diet Coke addiction, fears putting her foot in her mouth on social media, and has a renewed appreciation for the bad girls of the world.

About the Book:

Over-forty, single mom Tess Howland's life is all about caring for other people. Indulging in a one night stand is just what she needs. She doesn't expect to meet anyone she would introduce to her kids, especially not some rich playboy who acts like a big kid himself. Even if he keeps giving her the best sex of her life.
Millionaire Miles Prescott can't get the sexy nurse he met at a fundraising gala out of his head. For the first time ever, he doesn't want a woman with no-strings-attached. He wants everything—even it comes with a ready-made family with a woman in her forties. Suddenly, helping with homework doesn't sound like the worst thing in the world, especially if it means being near Tess.
But what happens when he’s ready to step up and she says no?

Single parents are all the rage but what I loved about this was it’s a single mum in her forties trying to make ends meet, keeping her three children happy and healthy as well as trying to appease the ex husband.
Tess has been divorced for a few years and dating has never been on the cards until she meets Miles at the Saints Marks fundraiser, her job is to work the floor raising funds for her department but when she comes across the hot bored playboy the last thing she expects is a wild night of passion....
Miles is only there because it was his late fathers fundraiser, he is bored with charity circuit but he is there to support his mother, what he didn’t expect was to wake up in the morning and find the woman he spent a passionate night with to have disappeared in the middle of the night.....
This is a present time Cinderella story, it’s fun, it’s romantic and it has characters you can’t help falling in love with. I loved watching this couple get to know each other and I loved seeing Miles learn how to deal with an instant family who may or may not be looking for a father. If you love romance with a feel good factor this is a must read. Can’t wait to read more from Shannon Schroeder.







I thoroughly enjoyed One Night With The Millionaire.  Perhaps because the heroine is a little older; Im not sure. The writing was great and I found myself diving right in and I couldnt put the book down. From the first to the last chapter I was hooked.
A single mum and nurse in her forties, Tess Howlands life is all about trying to maintain peace and a sense of balance; not only with her kids but also her ex-husband and work.
When the opportunity arises for a one night stand with sexy as sin, Miles Prescott, she decides to go for it, after all nothing will come of it, right? Imagine Tesss shock when the millionaire is interested in pursuing more than the initial one night. What will Tess do? Will she accept or run?
 Miles and Tess were fantastic together and I loved how accepting Miles was of her life and her children, without completely trying to take over.
This was a feel good romantic lover story that hit all the right buttons for me. I loved the interaction as they got to know one another and it was often amusing to watch as Miles navigated the instant” family he got as their relationship progressed.
This book made me smile and was an entertaining and fun read.

About KING

From New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo comes a romance about taking chances, double lives, and falling madly in love with the one person you’re supposed to want dead.
Never steal from a king.
Down on her luck in Las Vegas, Isabel “Izzy” Lake turns to the regulated prostitution industry. But her first day on the job ends abruptly when her client dies, and his suitcase contains over a million dollars.
Izzy takes the money and sets off to a small town on the other side of the country, where she attempts to live a low-profile life. A few weeks into her new country girl lifestyle, she finds owning an old fixer-upper isn’t so fun when you’re a city girl with zero DIY skills.
Izzy’s handsome new neighbor, Kingston Jameson, is all too eager to fix her leaky faucet and warm the cold side of her bed. It’s not long before she finds herself falling for King. But is he really the sweet-talking country boy he claims to be, or has he come to collect more than her heart?
***
Kingston “King” Jameson knew he shouldn’t have let Garrett pick up the suitcase full of cash. And he sure as hell never expected Garrett to die at a brothel and get robbed by a prostitute.
King needs to get the suitcase – and the secret item hidden in the lining – before his boss kills him.
He has one problem: The girl who stole the suitcase has hidden it very well. She left her entire life behind in Las Vegas. She’s got nothing left to lose. If King wants that suitcase, he needs to get close to her. Close enough to watch her every move. To know her deepest secrets.
Okay, he has two problems: He’s also fallen in love with the girl he’s supposed to kill.

So there’s that. Look, it’s not like I didn’t know I screwed up by falling for her. Also, for the record, unrequited love sucks big time.

Excerpt:

~LEO~
Let’s get one thing out of the way real fast. Regret is a waste of time. I don’t believe in it—never have, never will. I try to live my life without that useless emotion.
You know those articles where the journalist asks old people what they would have done differently, and they list all sorts of stuff—be a better friend, call your mom, tell the woman you love her? You don’t want to be that person.
There’s a simple way to avoid it.
Do the good shit now.
Say yes to that crazy job offer, ask out the girl who’s out of your league, climb the mountain and kiss the sky.
You’ll thank yourself later.
But the flip side of that kind of life is this: you need some rules. A few basic guidelines to follow to navigate the potholes.
Over the years I’ve assembled my top picks. Some from experience, some from listening to others.
Allow me to share my hard-won wisdom.
1.     If you have to sniff the food in your fridge to decide if you can eat it, just toss it. You’ll be glad you did tomorrow.
2.     You can tell everything you need to know about a person by how he or she treats the waiter.
3.     Turn down that last tequila shot. Trust me on this one.
4.     If your woman sends you to the store to pick up something, get that something, not another version you think is better. Her version isalways the right one.
5.     You can’t put your foot in your mouth if it’s closed.
6.     No dude ever gets in trouble while cleaning the kitchen.
7.     Don’t live to work; work to live.
8.     If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.
9.     Don’t get a tattoo that’s longer than your dick.
10.  Men should never wear black jeans.
That’s my list and I’m sticking to it. Those mantras have served me well. They’ve made me the man I am today—successful, wise, and satisfied.
There’s one more though. An addendum, if you will. The postscript you need to achieve a life well-lived. This ought to be so damn easy that no one makes this mistake.
Gather close.
Write it down.
Follow this one to the motherfucking letter.
No matter what, don’t fall in love with your best friend’s girl.
Too bad that ship sailed long ago for me.

✮✮✮A Fabulous Birthday Present for You! ✮✮✮

Let’s celebrate the release of BIRTHDAY SUIT with the cupcake of the month club from Wicked Good Cupcakes and a Subscription to Audible all wrapped up in a Michael Kors Handbag ($500 value)!

 
Giveaway link:



Lauren Blakely never disappoints me and Birthday Suit is everything I expected and more it’s a fun witty read with just the right amount of emotional serious issues added in to keep you hooked. I really don’t want to write a review that’s either full of spoilers or just a copy of the blurb (you can read that for yourself) so I’m just going to tell you how this story made me feel....
This book has all the feels I want in a great read I laughed out loud, I giggled at the witty banter and I shed a few tears as my emotions went from happy to sad and back to happy again. The book is so much more than a story it’s a journey as we negotiate all the obstacles Lulu and Leo have to get past before they get the HEA they truly deserve. A heroine who is strong and fun to be around and a hero who tells you it as it is but that’s not all because all the characters in this book have depth and they are all easy to love. Loveable characters, sizzling chemistry and witty banter what more could you want oh I know the audible book that’s coming out soon and I for me can’t wait to listen to this great read. Another winner from this very talented author.




This was an entertaining enjoyable story centering on past best friends Lulu and Leo! Its been ten years but somehow the past catches up with both of them!
We learn some truths about the past friendships, and how things turned out for them both! Needless to say there is some sadness.
Should it happen or should it not!
When Lulu gets a contracted position where Leo works does the feelings bubbling to the surface get in the way of both their dreams of success?
Or does the past haunt them both!
The banter was great, the sage words of advice from certain characters incredibly insightful and the friendships created in this story will have you finish with a smile on your face!
Sometimes someone important is just what you deserve in life and above all else a love everlasting!
A truly wonderful story!
