Slowly, with his steadfast determination and kind heart, Simon brings Magnolia out of her shell. But just as things start heating up between the two of them, the darkness of Magnolia’s past resurfaces, threatening to rip apart everything they’ve worked so hard for.

Tulsa by SL Scott Cover Reveal

Title: TULSA

Author: S.L. Scott

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: May 3, 2018

Cover Design: RBA Designs

Goodreads: http://bit.ly/TulsaGR

SYNOPSIS

From New York Times Bestselling Author, S.L. Scott, comes a hot new rock star romance that will sweep you off your feet and leave you with a smile.

The rumors are true. At least where I’m concerned.

Drummers hit it harder and do it better.

Women love me and I love them. But I like to think of myself as a sensitive soul trapped in a lady-killer’s body. Not so surprisingly, I’ve been called cocky a time or two. What can I say? We can’t all be boy scouts.

Nikki Faris has thrown off my rhythm. With her red lips, smart aleck mouth, short skirts, long legs, and blue-sky eyes, the beautiful lead singer has become a complete distraction on this tour.

She loves to give me a hard time when all I want to do is give her the pleasure of my hard—time right back.

Tulsa Crow can save his pick up lines, great eight-pack abs, and cute dimples to use on someone else. My band earned their spot on The Resistance’s tour just like The Crow Brothers. I’m not going to blow it getting sidetracked by a cocky rock star that wants to sleep his way through the states. I’ve been called a name or two, but easy isn’t one of them.

 

 

ABOUT S.L. SCOTT

Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.

Until Sunrise by Sarah O’Rourke

**Review at the bottom

 

 

Until Sunrise by: Sarah O’Rourke

Part of Aurora Rose Reynolds’ Happily Ever Alpha Kindle World

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: April 3rd, 2018

Cover Design: Sarah O’Rourke

 

Michelle Buchanan wasn’t looking for the perfect man to fill her life.  She’d settle for Mr. Right Now to fill the empty spot in her bed – just someone that could help her with the little problem of her lingering virginity.  But when Luka Templeton invaded her blind date and suddenly begins taking over her every waking thought, she realizes that she is in way too deep with the confident alpha male currently wreaking havoc on her life.

 

Join us on this romantic comedy romp as Chelle and Luka find their way to happily ever after!

                                                                        
Romantic comedy.  Releases on April 3 as part of Aurora Rose Reynold’s Happily Ever After Kindle World.  (And if you’ve read Aurora’s Until series, you’ll know Chelle from Until Ashlyn!)

 

 

 

Available exclusively in Kindle Unlimited!

 

AMAZON US     

 

 

Michelle meets Luka while waiting on a blind date to show up.  And for him it was an instant attraction and he knew she was the one.  Michelle needed more time.  She grew up with a mom and grandmother who basically told her men were terrible.  She was not into getting into a relationship with Luka.

We get to read this is dual POV and I loved seeing how confident Luka is when it came to Michelle and his feelings.  Hearing about his parents made you understand his willingness to go quickly in their relationship.  His parents are amazing.  Then you have Michelle’s best friend Ashlyn.  Michelle soon learns she is in deeper then she ever could have thought.

Overall this is a fun quick read and while their relationship moves fast, it isn’t overly rushed (yes that seems weird) and it flows nicely.

 

 

  1. How did the two of you begin writing together?

 

We met in an online writing group, found out that we were writing similar type stories and plotlines, and soon became fast friends!   After a few months, we started beta reading for each other, and that soon morphed into “Ummmm, just help me out with this one paragraph, ‘kay?”    Needless to say, it grew into much more than just a paragraph or two when we started writing whole stories together. That was over 9 years ago…and wow!  Life has surely changed so much during that time. We call ourselves Crazy One and Crazy Two — for VERY obvious reasons!

 

      2.  Where did the concept for Until Sunrise come from?

 

Until Sunrise is based in the Happily Ever Alpha Kindle World (Aurora Rose Reynolds.)  Our characters were very briefly mentioned in ARR’s book Until Ashlyn. We had the great pleasure of giving a romantic (and funny!) backstory to Michelle and Luke that we hope does justice to ARR’s amazing world!

 

      3. What is your favourite type of book to read?  

 

Romance.  Romance. And MORE Romance!!!

 

      4. Out of all the books you’ve written, do you have a favourite?  

 

Oh, we’re not supposed to have favorites, right?  Well, don’t tell the other little book children, but we are both exceedingly fond of Man of Honor.   Zeke is the ultimate hero that we just love to pieces!

       5. What is your writing process?

 

Our process usually starts with a few glasses of wine and a 4-hour phone call.Crazy One usually  has some wild-ass idea for an off-the-wall story, so we start with 30 minutes of Crazy Two trying to talk Crazy One out of the latest adventure. It seldom works. Then, Crazy Two resigns herself to 4-6 months of writing hell. (FYI: In case you’re wondering, Crazy Two knows the battle has been lost when Crazy One lets out a war cry of “Bitch, let’s do this thing!”)

 

At the beginning, we usually talk and talk and talk about plotlines, settings, characters, etc. before the first word is written. Do NOT underestimate the amount of talking that we do. We then make sure that all of our crazy meds are filled and available at a moment’s notice. Then Crazy One will start writing – and after an inordinate amount of bitching, whining, and complaining, she sends the chapters to Crazy Two for review. Crazy Two then drinks a few bottles of wine, puts on her football helmet, and goes to battle with Crazy One over any changes. This can get bloody.

 

When the book is finished, Crazy Two then edits and rewrites…and sends it back to Crazy One, who has her Momma and the Crazy Crew Street Team read it while simultaneously yelling about the ridiculous and wicked cuts that were made to her precious manuscript. Momma, who obviously was a Grammar Nazi in a previous life, then lectures both Crazies on their lack of knowledge concerning basic English language structure. (Ignore Momma…she’s a little bitter about all those dollars spent on Crazy One’s college education. Hi, Momma!)

 

In the end, Crazy Two prepares the covers (which usually sends Crazy One into hiding because Crazy Two becomes slightly psychotic during design time. It’s not her fault…no one appreciates how much she SUFFERS for her art!)  Then we publish the book and pray. And drink. A lot. There ya go! Does that sound confusing? Imagine how we feel!

 

    6. If you could meet one author, who would it be and why?

 

Well, we’ve been blessed to meet so maaaaany of our idols recently. BUT…if we were able to turn back the clock, we’d want to meet Margaret Mitchell…hands down.  In our opinion, that woman wrote the best alpha male ever to grace the pages of a book. We would love to just have 5 tiny, short minutes with her to pick her brain and find out what motivated her to write Gone With the Wind and how she managed to develop such amazing characters!  (And we’re both born and raised in the South…)

    7. Where does your inspiration come from?

 

There’s an old saying that recommends that you “Write what you know.”  We’ve taken that to heart, and most of our books are set in the South (southern United States) and are about Southern belles and their kick-ass alphas.  Since both of us were born and raised in the South, we’re pretty well-versed in how romance works down here, and we often find ourselves including scenes or dialogue that we have heard or actually said!

 

    8. What are your favourite things about signings?  Do you get nervous at them?

 

Oh, Crazy One is our signing guru.  She loves to interact with our current readers and meet new readers!  Signings are also a time for to be fangirls and get to meet the other authors that we love and admire!

 

    9. What inspired you to become writers?

 

We each started for different reasons but ALMOST at the same time.  Crazy One started writing in order to deal with her husband’s military deployment.  Crazy Two began writing in order to relax from work issues.

 

    10. What are your next upcoming releases?  

 

We’re currently working on Copy Cat, which will be a companion story to our paranormal shifter romance Cat Scratch Fever.  Then, we’ll be working on Maggie and Ice’s story (from our Passion in Paradise series.) We’re not quite sure on the title yet, but we do have it narrowed down to two choices! That’s progress for us!

Everly wasn’t excited over her impending meeting with the enigmatic Prince Sage. Being one of only four women from whom the Prince gets to choose in marriage was never something she valued.

Once Sage proceeds to the next candidate, Everly finally feels she can move forward with her life. On her own terms. That is, until she receives a mysterious request, asking her to solve a riddle, taking her on a night she’ll never forget.

Yes, yes, I’ve heard the rumors.
The prince is royal, and cocky and has a—well never mind about all that.
The problem is, he’s also my job.

When the King called on me to retrieve the wayward prince, I was ready to walk away.

Then I caught my boyfriend cheating—and suddenly leaving never felt like a better idea.

Sebastian…

I never wanted the throne.

When I left behind my gilded cage of a palace, it all sounded so simple: find my long-lost brother & make him the prince so I don’t have to rule the kingdom like my father expects.

Then I meet my new neighbor, and quickly realize I’ve found the queen of my heart—and bed.

Just one problem, I can’t let her find out who I really am.

About the Author:

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego.

Review:

Sebastian and Penny are both very likeable characters. They were friends as kids, but a lot has happened since then…and while he finds her familiar she will never forget him. I love that she was quirky and awkward in a way. You couldn’t help but root for and love her. And while Sebastian may have been “acting out” you saw where he was coming from and wasn’t doing it to hurt anyone but to be able to follow his own dreams.

Both Sebastian and Penny are in a situation neither really wanted and/or loved, and yet, that is what is set for them. To me though, the book started out a little slow and yet I was still invested in the story and enjoyed watching it all play out.

I loved watching these two slowly start to explore things even if for awhile neither wanted anything. It was a nice slow burn and yet their chemistry was always there, so them together isn’t a shock and you are just waiting for them to finally react and admit to things.

The overall story is great and honestly different then what I would have ever even thought…I loved that it wasn’t a typical romance story, and the ended makes you NEED book 2 like yesterday. This is my first book by this author but it will not be my last.

The Consequence of Rejection by Rachel Van Dyken
Publication Date: March 26th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
CORejection_eBook_LowRes

You know the universe is trying to tell you something when you get struck by lightning, but only after getting hit on by the elderly, almost getting run over by a semi, and running into the one who got away.
Why do they say it like that anyway?
Like I accidentally lost her when she was the one that got in the car with my best friend and left me.
The day after I proposed.
We were eighteen.
I wanted forever.
She didn’t.
It’s been ten years.
I tried to move on, tried to get married, had that same wedding crashed by my now best friend who says the only way for me to stop pissing off the universe, is to gain closure with the one woman I can’t forget.
So I do it.
I embark on a journey down memory lane that not only lands me in prison but on the receiving end of a fist fight in front of the entire town, this naturally happens after drunken pool sex, climbing the same girl’s window, and getting threatened at gunpoint by her father.
To say the universe is trying to tell me something anything, is a giant understatement.
I just hope I survive the message.
And then, I hope I survive her—again.

Review

 

I have not read the other books in this series so this can be read as a standalone BUT…I did not like Max at all, and I wonder if I read his book if I would enjoy him more. Jason seemed more annoyed by him then anything else in this book also. But putting that aside….

10 years, 10 years have passed since Maddy and Jason were together and she walked out on him. 10 years of him still brooding and of course seeing her brings back all the anger. And I honestly understand his anger, he never got closure…she is the one who left him. She didn’t even give him ANYTHING….but he also needs to let it go.

I love that they both consider the other, the one who got away, the love of their life, etc…and yet, both are stubborn and won’t fully put themselves out there. But can you change things? Can you make it a future you want with someone else? I think the biggest issue, is can Maddy and Jason get on the same page and communication. I did love them going through their past to try to get closure, and yet, do we really think that could work.

This is a pretty fast paced rom-com that will have you laughing out loud at times. It will also make you want to punch people and also want to hug some. This is a great group of characters and I love the group scenes as well as Maddy and Jason scenes alone. You will love this second chance 10 year in the making romance.
