Release Day Blitz & Review by Erin: Scoring the Wrong Twin by Naima Simone


Meet the Author:


USA Today Bestselling author Naima Simone’s love of romance was first stirred by Johanna Lindsey, Sandra Brown and Linda Howard many years ago. Well not that many.

She is only eighteen…ish. Though her first attempt at a romance novel starring Ralph Tresvant from New Edition never saw the light of day, her love of romance, reading and writing has endured. Published since 2009, she spends her days—and nights— writing sizzling romances with a touch of humor and snark. She is wife to Superman, or his non-Kryptonian, less bullet proof equivalent, and mother to the most awesome kids ever. They all live in perfect, sometimes domestically-challenged bliss in the southern United States.

About the Book:



Shy, awkward Sophia Cruz has a hard time telling her vivacious identical twin “no.” But when her sister begs her to swap places for a modeling shoot, she caves … again. Then Zephirin Black walks onto the set. The brooding, aloof, and gorgeous tight end for the Washington Warriors. But she can keep it professional… She has to. Because the adorkable Cruz twin has no luck with guys once they compare her to her sister. 

After a bad break-up, Zeph hasn’t been big on second chances—and even less with trust. But he finds himself giving please-call-me-by-my-middle-name-Sophia both. The woman he’d dismissed as a spoiled cover model is different from the first time he met her. Quirkier. Funnier. Definitely sexier. What started as one night turns into another…and another…and another…

Still, Sophia can’t go on keeping her secret from him. But telling Zeph the truth will mean losing him for good.

5 Star Review Scoring With The Wrong Twin by Naima Simone

Naima Simone is a new author to me and I have to ask myself why that is. This was a relatively quick read but one that ticked all the boxes for me.

Sophia Cruz is the shy and geeky identical twin of Giovanna, a successful up and coming model. When her sister convinces her to substitute for her at a modelling shoot, Sophia has no idea that it will change her life in ways she has never imagined. Giovanna has always been the beautiful twin, whilst Sophia was often bullied at school and overlooked as the plain , overweight twin.

Attending the shoot Sophia meets and is immediately attracted to Zephirin Black, a tall, gorgeous tight end for the Washington Warriors. Zeph isn’t looking for romance after being badly burnt by his ex girlfriend he has sworn to never trust a woman again, especially if he finds out they have lied to him. However he too is attracted to “Giovanna”, a woman he has met before but who seems so different this time. Sophia is shocked at how beautiful she feels in the photo shoot and decides after initially rejecting Zeph, to jump into a one night stand.

Zeph has no idea that Sophia is posing as Giovanna and she is terrified when their one night stand, turns into more and more. What will Zeph do when he finds out that it is Sophia and not Giovanna who has captured his attention? Will he forgive her or walk away?

I loved Zeph and Sophia, both separately and together and so wanted them to get their happily ever after. Their chemistry was off the charts and I loved Zeph’s love and devotion for the grandmother who raised him. The characters were relatable and not only was it a spicy read it was also funny.

This book had me gripped from the first chapter and I couldn’t put it down, reading in one sitting.

I will definitely be reading more from Naima Simone.

About the Keys to Love Series

Their homecoming wasn’t so welcoming. Four brothers and one sister each gave twelve years of their lives to serve their country and fulfill their family’s legacy of service. As each of them return to their home of record, they weren’t prepared for what awaited them—an unforgivable sin that has been hidden for twelve long years. Secrets and lies are concealed in the dark shadows of the very town they were raised in, and the Kendall family will have no choice but to rely on one another to unravel the sinister evil that they all hold the keys to unlock.
 

Read the First Chapter of UNLOCKING FEAR:

Twelve years ago… The deepening shadows stretched out across the small cluster of trees, causing the footpath to become somewhat obscured by the dark. The dying leaves that covered the floor of the woods rustled as the cool October breeze turned into a strong gust of wind. A storm must be rolling into town. Emma didn’t slow down her pace. She was already an hour late for her curfew, but at least this old shortcut would take ten minutes off her trip home. Her parents would probably ground her for at least a week, if not more. She needed to find a better way to sneak back inside the house. The back door squeaked horribly. It could wake the dead. What was the odd chance her sister would cover for her? Emma grimaced, already knowing the answer to that question. This was all Shae’s fault, anyway. Why did she always get the car, just because she was older? It was so unfair that she didn’t have to share. Emma quickened her pace despite the darkness and the chance of tripping over a root. She imagined that she could walk this route with her eyes closed just as easily. She’d come this way a thousand times over. It was used by most of the kids who were still relegated to riding their bikes and walking out to Yoder’s farm to party, especially since most of them lived on the far side of the old woods in town. A twig snapped in the distance, bringing her up short. Its piercing crack echoed off the trees. Was someone else walking home? “Who’s there?” Emma waited for a reply, wincing when her voice was amplified through the small stretch of woods. She tried to peer through the trees, expecting to see Brynn or Julie, but it was too dark to make anything out beyond a few yards. The faint and comforting sound of her favorite song drifted from the old farmhouse. She looked over her shoulder, still able to make out the orange sparks rising from the top of the raging bonfire as they reached into the night’s sky. It was almost as if the flames were dancing, reminding her of how Billy held her in his arms earlier as they swayed to the music. Emma smiled as she wrapped her arms around her waist in an effort to keep warm. She could still smell the bonfire on her sweater, along with his father’s cologne that Billy had been wearing. Maybe he graduated to buying his own though, choosing from the limited selection at Murphy’s dry goods. Not eve n the chilly night air could take away her happiness at having secured a chance at a relationship. She’d waited so long for him to notice her. Tonight had been as perfect as it could get. Now all she had to do was figure out a way to sneak into her house without her parents catching her in the act or that stupid door screeching out into the night. She needed to be able to say yes to Billy if he asked her out for next weekend. And he would, she was sure of it. Emma slowly spun around looking for the source o f the noise, not seeing anyone or anything. A quick glance up at the sky told her that the clouds were gathering. She hesitated before walking deeper into the woods that would lead her right to the edge of Seventh Street and the town’s cemetery. A vision of her standing by her school locker and saying yes to Billy had her continuing forward with a determined stride. This annual bonfire wouldn’t be their last, of that she was certain, but it was one she would always remember. She’d heard that old Yoder’s far m had been sold, so future get- togethers would most likely be in the clearing on the north side of the woods. She noticed the new owners had even started renovating the farmhouse, but that hadn’t stopped Chad Schaeffer from organizing one last bash out by the farm pond. It was a miracle the sheriff hadn’t cruised by earlier and sent everyone home. He was usually a real stickler when it came to parties involving the local teens. No one recognized the name of the new owner. There were no relatives of the Yoders around these parts anymore, so the town council must have decided to auction off the land after clearing it with the courts. She’d meant to ask her dad how someone determined if a piece of property was derelict. She’d heard a teacher talking about it in class. It probably had something to do with property taxes. Emma hadn’t wanted to bring up the matter, because then her dad would have figured out that she was part of the gang who hung out on the same property the town council complained about. Now that would have earned her a grounding for at least a month or more. There was a break in the clouds, allowing for the dirt path in front of her to suddenly became clear. She took another step forward before realizing something was quite wrong, but by then it was far too late. Emma walked directly into the arms of her killer.

5 Star Review of Bayside Passions (Bayside Summers #2)  by Melissa Foster
Having already read several books by Melissa Foster I was ready to dive in to a new series.
I particularly enjoy friends to lovers stories and this one did not disappoint. This is the story of Emery Andrews and Dean Masters and if I am being truthful, I would love a man like Dean in my life; he ticked so many boxes and I was drawn to him from the start, totally swoon worthy.
When Emery decides to take the plunge and move to Cape Cod to work at her friend Desiree’s resort, she knows that she will be surrounded by good friends. What she doesn’t know is that Dean is hoping that he can convince her that he is the man for her. In fact Emery is totally blind to what everyone else can see where Dean is concerned.
Bayside Passions is a story of friendships,humour,romance and overall is a heart warming book that will make you smile, feel good and is one I highly recommend.
Ms. Foster wove a tale that kept me captivated from the first page until the last. I will most certainly be keeping my eye out for the next book in the series as I anxiously wait to find out who is next in the series.



4 Stars

 Book 2 in the Bayside Summers Series and we are back in Cape Cod for Dean and Emery’s story, this may be book 2 but I feel it could be read as a stand-alone and if you love friends to lovers you will want to one click Bayside Passions.
Emery and Dean have been friends for a while but that’s not what Dean want he wants more but Emery is an expert at keeping men at arms length but will she be able to keep up the pretence oh only wanting to be friends when she is finds herself living in close proximity to Dean.
This is a very sweet romantic love story, it’s what I call my holiday reads, I love this author and her loveable characters and her descriptions of the towns her stories take place in leave me wanting to jump on the next plane . Looking forward to more in this series

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards. We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction. I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me. We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number. I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home. I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems. Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose? Nothing, I thought. It’s just sex, not love. But you know what they say about the best laid plans…   ADD TO GOODREADS

THE WRIGHT SECRET by K.A. Linde - Review Blitz, Reviews by Marina & Jackie

       

A new brother’s-best-friend stand alone romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I was just his best friend’s little sister.

But he was always more than that to me.

After twelve years of pining over Patrick’s easy smile, baby blues, and captivating charm, I decide to take matters into my own hands—and completely blow my chance.

Who knew a self-proclaimed manwhore would decide to be a gentleman the first time I’m naked in his bed? Definitely, not me. But when I land there again, neither of us has any intention of stopping.

There’s only one problem: nobody can know. Especially not my three older brothers. If they found out, all hell would break loose.

So I’m willing to keep our secret. Because I want him Wright here, right now.

I have anxiously been waiting for Morgan’s story and this one packs a punch!
I thoroughly enjoyed it and of course there is always some sort of drama happening within the Wright family!
I think the characters gel really well and I’ve come to feel apart of their group by learning alot about the family! 
Morgan is now CEO of the company but things don’t go as well as they should! It looks like a certain distant member of the family is causing trouble and it may effect Morgan’s job!
What eventuates is family rivalry, friendships that hurt and some secrecy that comes to light! An extremely riveting read!



I love this series and this was the book I have been waiting for and what can I say K.A. Linde did not disappoint, Morgan and Patrick’s story was everything I expected and more.
 Morgan has grown up under the protective eye of her brothers but that has only made her stronger more determined to succeed as the new CEO of Wright Construction what she didn’t bargain for was finding out the man she had loved for many years would feel the same way about her. Patrick has been around forever after all he is her brothers best friend and he works at Wright Construction so he should be off limits but that’s all about to change when he hands in his resignation.
Patrick and Morgan are just perfect for each other but that doesn’t mean their love story is all plan sailing, they have a few hurdles to cross before they get their HEA. Morgan is the girl we would all love to be she is strong, sassy and knows what she wants, Patrick is hot and has a laid back attitude and that brings out the best in Morgan, it brings her to life. This book is a great romance story, it’s got some great swoon worthy moments as well strong characters you can’t help falling in love with. The chemistry between Morgan and Patrick is sizzling and just with all the other books in this series we get to see what is happening with the rest of the Wright Clan. Great read, loved it.

Cover Reveal for SNOW CROSSED LOVERS SERIES by Carrie Quest

Today, we have the series reveal of Carrie Quest’s new series, SNOW-CROSSED LOVERS. Check out all three gorgeous covers and about the books!

Check out an Exclusive Excerpt from the free novella BAILING OUT:

If the rooms upstairs are four star, this place is a negative seven. Negative eight if any rats show up, which is a distinct possibility. Examining every inch of it takes me about thirty seconds, and after that there’s nothing to look at except her. I start at her feet, snug in those big furry boots, which is lucky since the temperature in here is dropping fast. Her black stockings and short black skirt don’t look nearly as cozy, and are a far cry from the jeans she used to favor, but I guess a lot has changed for both of us. She’s wrapped up in a black wool coat, the belt cinched tight around her waist, emphasizing the gentle curve of her hips. In another life I would grab the ends of that belt and pull her toward me before unwrapping her like a shiny present under the tree on Christmas morning. Instead, I jam my hands in my pockets and make myself meet her eyes. She’s checking me out as well, lips flashing up in a quick smile when she sees I’m wearing the Red Sox hat she gave me, and she flushes when I catch her looking. The deep pink starts in the apples of her cheeks and spreads down to disappear under the collar of her coat, but she keeps her gaze steady. “I know it wasn’t your idea,” she whispers. I tilt my head forward to hear because she’s practically mouthing the words, like she’s afraid someone is listening. “I figured that out by the time I got back to my room,” she continues. “Then why didn’t you pick up your phone?” I keep my voice as quiet as hers, and she shuffles two tiny steps toward me, then stops and plants her feet, like she’s determined to go no farther. We stare at each other across the room. Close enough to touch hands if we stretched our fingers forward, but oh so far away. I force myself to keep standing straight as the memories hit me. Curled up behind Belle in that huge-ass bed in the Moscow hotel room, waking up hard and happy with the soft curve of her ass pressed back against my dick, pushing that glorious hair to the side and trailing kisses down the back of her neck until she was moaning and wiggling against me… It was our first night together and the first and only time I ever woke up with another person in my bed. The World Skating Championships were supposed to be held in Japan that year, but there was an earthquake ten days before the event was scheduled to start so it was postponed a month and moved to Moscow, which meant I could come watch Belle compete. She took gold, reclaiming her place in the top spot after missing the Vancouver Olympics due to an injury. I convinced her to take a week off and go to the Ile de Joie with me afterwards, seven days of wandering the twisty cobbled streets where my mom grew up and seven nights of Belle in my bed. I’d just won my first major competition and I was taking a vacation with my girl. Life was perfect. But on our first morning her phone rang. My heart starts beating faster at the memory and my stomach twists, remembering the way I ran to the toilet and threw up after she stormed out of the room. “Don’t answer,” I’d murmured, smiling at her moan as I slid a hand up the smooth skin of her stomach to cup the warm weight of her breast. “It’s not important,” I told her as my fingers teased her nipple and it hardened to a tight bud, ready for my tongue. “Stay with me,” I’d begged her as she pulled away a moment later, just enough to reach for her phone. Her other hand snaked back to stroke my dick, and it felt so good that I closed my eyes, lost in the dream of waking up with the only woman I’d ever loved. Then she went stiff in my arms and screamed, and the dream turned into a nightmare.

Gabriel Power came to Sochi with two goals: win a medal and track down his ex-girlfriend so he can finally explain the truth about the scandal that came between them. Once that’s done, he’s going to disappear. Snowboarding’s bad boy is tired of the phony photo ops set up by his media mogul father. Getting hounded by reporters and pretending to date supermodels while running errands for Power News cost him the only girl he’s ever loved, and now it’s time to walk away. Quitting his father will be easy. Bailing on snowboarding will be slightly harder. Getting Belle to forgive him may be impossible, but he has to try. Isabelle Garland’s Olympic dream died the night a drunk driver plowed into her car and crushed her leg. Sochi was supposed to be her moment of glory, but instead she’s limping around the Village trying to dodge the snowboarder who broke her heart and avoid the interviews her pushy sister-slash-manager insists are vital for building her brand. Belle doesn’t want a brand, she wants a life. Preferably one far away from the rude reporters who keep trying to get America’s Skating Sweetheart to cry on camera by asking how it feels when your entire life is snatched away in an instant. (Spoiler: it feels like s***. Also, she’s more snark than sweet these days.) When she runs into Gabe in the basement of her hotel, Belle’s first instinct is to flee. Too bad they’re trapped in a freezing storage room together with no way out and only their chemistry to keep them warm…

Title: Dropping In

Series: A Snow-Crossed Lovers Novel

Release Date: February 8th

About Dropping In:

Natalie Berensen has one short summer to ace her writing class and convince her parents she’s not a hopeless screw-up. No more changing her major once a month, taking time off to travel, or random friends-with-benefits. She doesn’t have time for distractions or hook-ups, not even if her longtime crush is in town for the summer and living in her basement. Who cares if he’s a snowboarding god with six pack abs and a hashtag devoted to his apparently magical penis? She’s not interested. Until she is. Ben Easton’s focus and self-discipline is legendary. He’s built a career as a professional snowboarder by training harder than anyone else on the mountain and steering clear of anything that doesn’t take him one step closer to his goal: Olympic gold. Then his best friend crashes in the half-pipe and Ben drops everything to take care of him. No more training. No more competitions. No more snowboarding. It’s over.   He’s back in Boulder to help with Adam’s rehab, not fool around with his little sister’s best friend, no matter how much he loves her laugh or the way her ass looks when she walks up the stairs. There’s no way in hell he’s going anywhere near Natalie. Until he does. Contains: a grumpy guard cat with a taste for blood, discussions of Ents as phallic symbols, and plenty of sexy times.

Title: Wiping Out

Series: A Snow-Crossed Lovers Novel

Release Date: March 8th

About Wiping Out:

Piper Easton is a fixer. As a teenager she took over running the house when her mom got sick, and when her snowboarder brother was injured, she found the top knee guru in town and finagled a same-day appointment. She’s got an exclusive internship lined up in Europe and she’ll be leaving as soon as she watches her brother Ben win a gold medal. She just has to clean up one last mess: the way her stupid heart jumps whenever her ex-boyfriend appears. She and Adam are friends now, that’s it. That’s all they can ever be. But maybe a few benefits aren’t out of the question. Just until their trip to the Olympics finishes and they both go their separate ways. Surely the problem will be fixed by then. Adam Westlake had two true loves: snowboarding and Piper Easton. He lost them both and now he’s broken. The scars from where they cut his skull open are no longer visible, but the traumatic brain injury means it isn’t safe for him to ride again and he hasn’t spoken to Piper in eighteen months. Not since he got out of the hospital and fled Colorado, terrified he wouldn’t be able to resist strapping on his board when the snow started falling. He’s been chasing summer around the world ever since, until a lucrative offer to report on the Olympics brings him home to face all the temptations he left behind. He might be able to summon the willpower to stay off the mountain, but Piper? She’s irresistible. Contains: sex as an Olympic sport, dirty dancing while wearing eye goggles, ninety-nine penis balloons, and a blowjob rudely interrupted by a devil in feline form.
