CAR CRASH by T. Gephart (Collision Series, #2)

Coming February 7

Pre-order Exclusively on Apple Books

Synopsis:

Kitty was not only beautiful but also incredibly intelligent—except when it came to relationships. It seemed if a guy was a loser, corrupt, deadbeat or unavailable, she was completely and utterly attracted to him. She definitely had a “type,” and all of them had been one bad decision after another.
Dallas had trouble of his own. Finding women wasn’t a problem—he could charm the pants off almost anyone—but most of those “pantless” women ended up being a few bananas short of a fruit basket. Not always the best candidates for his sex-without-strings philosophy. He was one date away from ending up a 60 Minutes special.
While both of them were at the top of their game professionally—she a high-powered executive assistant, and he one of the best tattooists in the city—their personal lives had become a dumpster fire.
No one in their right mind would have suggested they join forces to help each other wade through the crazy. Surely that was a recipe for disaster? But without reason, logic or even sanity on their side, they decided to do it anyway.
It was a hot mess primed for a head-on collision.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

 

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.
With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of "plan" has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She'd tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn't expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy.
When she isn't filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she's living her own reality show in the 'burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley.
She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.

Release Day: Crossing Hope by Kimberly Kincaid


                                                                     My Review:

               HOLY CRAP! Let’s see what can I possibly say to do this story justice? It was just too good for words, but I will try. This is the 4th book in the Cross Creak series but can be read as a standalone. However, as I quickly realized reading this one piqued my interest in the Cross boys and I needed to read the rest. Kimberly brings us a Forbidden Lovers story that is so fun to read. You have two strong willed characters that think they know what they want and determined to keep things the same. HA! Just as the saying goes We Plan… 
Marley Rallston is our headstrong heroin who thinks she can keep her head down long enough to get out of the small town she has found herself in. She’s a city girl stuck in a country town, I personally would love this town, but she doesn’t! Having everyone know her business is not something she is fond of.
Greyson Whittaker has a reputation for being just like his grumpy, mean-spirited father. He tried to prove people wrong but when in a small town this task is not an easy one. He decided to let people think what they want and, in some ways, feeds the rumors. He has an age-old rival with Marley’s brothers. He is forcing himself NOT to feel the attraction between them because there is no way he can possibly like anyone from ‘that family’. However, when they are forced to spend time together they both are forced to see that reputations are not always what they seem. They chemistry is HOT, the banter even Hotter. Kimberly writes these two perfectly and I recommend you read this one right away!! It is on the Goodreads highly anticipated Fall reads for a reason! I was given an ARC by the author to give an honest opinion and you have just read it. So, grab your copy of this fantastic book now and curl up in your spot to read!     

From USA Today bestselling author Kimberly Kincaid comes CROSSING HOPE, the next standalone title in the Cross Creek series, now available! A series filled with rugged, salt of the earth heroes who happen to be brothers, and strong family dynamics, CROSSING HOPE is filled with heart, humor, and heat. Grab you copy today!
    
Marley Rallston would rather be anywhere other than too-small-for-a-map-dot Millhaven, Virginia. But thanks to a heap of debt, what was supposed to be a quick trip to fulfill her mother’s dying wish has turned into an extended stay with the family she never knew she had and the father who never wanted her. To top it off, now she’s being forced to do community service with the town’s biggest bad boy, when all she wants to do is make enough cash to get out of Dodge? Life can’t get much worse.
The only thing Greyson Whittaker cares about is his family’s farm. He’ll do anything to keep Whittaker Hollow in the black, including live up to his rough, tough reputation by running the place by himself, no matter the cost. Mandatory community service with the daughter of their biggest rival is the last thing he wants or needs. But the more time Greyson and Marley spend together, the hotter their attraction burns, and the more the unlikely pair begins to realize that forbidden fruit just might taste the sweetest…

       EXCERPT:
Marley’s boots clapped to a halt on the linoleum at the same time her heartbeat cranked way, way up in her chest. She blamed the former on the way the deputy—who had nervously picked her up from The Corner Market—had stopped short beside her, as well as the sight of her oldest brother Owen’s best friend standing a few feet away, his face locked in disbelief. The latter was entirely the fault of the man planted next to Lane, though. Between his tanned skin, the tall, muscular frame that nearly gave Lane’s a run for its money, and the inky black tattoo curling from beneath the sleeve of his T-shirt all the way to his left elbow, Marley really couldn’t help the visceral reaction.
Even if the guy was leveling her with a dark and stormy gaze that said he didn’t like what he was looking at in return.
“What the hell is going on here?” Lane’s voice crash-landed in Marley’s thoughts just in time to chase the flush from her face. What did she care what this scowling stranger thought of her, anyway? She had bigger problems at the moment, thanks.
Case in point. “I, uh,” Deputy Collingsworth stammered, turning roughly the color of summer strawberries as he cleared his throat. “I made an arrest.”
“I can see that,” Lane replied tightly. “What I meant was, would you care to elaborate on exactly why it is that you’ve arrested my best friend’s little sister?”
Marley’s gut fluttered, but she refused to let the sensation get anywhere near her face. She’d known exactly what she was doing when she’d claimed those groceries as her own. Even if the steel bars and jail cell were a whole lot more real now that they were standing starkly in front of her.
Deputy Collingsworth straightened. “She was shoplifting at The Corner Market. Travis Paulson caught her red-handed, and she admitted it, to him and to me. What else was I supposed to do?”
Shock streaked over Lane’s face, but it didn’t last. “Radio me, for starters,” he hissed, and the guy next to him released an audible, oh-please scoff that sent Marley’s brows hooking up. She opened her mouth to tell Lane and the deputy and God and anyone else within earshot that she didn’t want any special treatment.
But Lane was already shaking his head, the thought forgotten. “You know what, never mind. We’ve got a more immediate issue to deal with here.”
“Okay,” Woody said, enough of a question hanging in his voice that Lane huffed out a breath.
“I’ve also made an arrest, as you can see.” He jerked his chin at Tall, Dark, and Scowling. “And we can’t put two people of the opposite sex in the same jail cell.”
The guy’s face changed then, sending another curl of heat through Marley’s blood. “By all means. Ladies first,” he said, gesturing grandly at the single cell. His smirk was its own entity, taking over his unnervingly rugged and (ugh) undeniably good-looking face as if it had a life of its own. He could fill Wrigley Field with his arrogant attitude and ultra-cocky bravado. Even then, he was brimming with so much of both that he’d probably have to use a crowbar to cram it all in. Too bad for him and his sexy little smile, Marley was packing boatloads of backbone, herself.
And she was in just the mood to let it fly like a fifty-foot flag.
“Oh, no. Really. Age before beauty,” she maintained, planting her hands on the hips of her cutoffs and smiling so sweetly at the wide-open door to the cell, she damn near needed a root canal. “After you.”
The guy’s black brows shot toward the tousled waves falling over his forehead. “It wouldn’t be gentlemanly of me to step on your cute little toes. Please. I insist.”
Oh, my God, was this guy even for real?

 
And don’t miss the first three standalone titles in the Cross Creek series, CROSSING HEARTS, CROSSING THE LINE, and CROSSING PROMISES!
    
Hunter Cross has no regrets. Having left his football prospects behind the day he graduated high school, he’s happy to carry out his legacy on his family’s farm in the foothills of the Shenandoah. But when a shoulder injury puts him face-to-face with the high school sweetheart who abandoned town—and him—twelve years ago, Hunter’s simple life gets a lot more complicated.
Emerson Montgomery has secrets. Refusing to divulge why she left her job as a hotshot physical therapist for a pro football team, she struggles to readjust to life in the hometown she left behind. The more time she spends with Hunter, the more Emerson finds herself wanting to trust him with the diagnosis of MS that has turned her world upside down.
But revealing secrets comes with a price. Can Hunter and Emerson rekindle their past love? Or will the realities of the present—and the trust that goes with them—burn that bridge for good?
Amazon
    
Cocky farmer Eli Cross plays twice as hard as he works. When his latest stunt drums up a heap of negative PR for the family farm, he grudgingly agrees to play host to an ambitious New York City photographer. Her feature on Cross Creek could be just the ticket to show the country what the Cross brothers do best…which is more problem than solution for Eli.
Scarlett Edwards-Stewart has photographed everything from end zones to war zones. She’s confident she can ace this one little story to help her best friend’s failing magazine. At least, she would be if her super-sexy host wasn’t so tight lipped. But the more Scarlett works with Eli, the more she discovers that he’s not who he seems. Can his secret bring them closer together? Or will it be the very thing that tears them apart?
Amazon
    
For Owen Cross, the only thing that matters more than family is farming. As the oldest Cross brother, the land is his legacy, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make Cross Creek a success—including hiring local widow Cate McAllister to manage the bookkeeping tasks that are growing in his office like weeds. Cate’s as pragmatic as she is pretty, and she rattles his hard-fought composure at every turn.
Cate had known a lot of things about her husband before he died three years ago in a car accident, but how much debt he’d gotten them into wasn’t one of them. She needs her job at Cross Creek, even if her boss is both gruff and gorgeous. But Owen’s a family man, through and through, and the last thing Cate is interested in is anything—or anyone—with strings attached.
As Owen and Cate join forces to right the farm, they discover there’s more to the other than the surfaces shows, and that passion can be found in unexpected places. Can Cate heal from the loss of one family to gain the love of her life? Or will the past prove too much for the promise of the future?

Title: Cold Spell

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About Cold Spell:

She can't stand him. He thinks she's never more adorable than when she's pissed at him. Liddy Drake would rather gamble on double black diamond runs than take a chance on love. Escaping dreary San Francisco for a Colorado mountain resort with her besties is just what the doctor ordered. But an injury on the first day lands her in the lap of a loud-mouthed ski instructor who knows exactly how to get under her skin. She doesn’t have time to waste on a playboy with a too-easy laugh and gorgeous blue eyes. Luke Sawyer left New York ten years ago for the ski runs of Colorado, concealing his identity as a Rothchild heir. He’d seen money change too many people, never for good. Scrappy, sassy, and oh-so-sexy Liddy doesn’t fall for the mask of his over-the-top charm. He accepts the challenge to show her his true self. Their chemistry is enough to melt snow-capped mountains, until she finds out the truth. There’s no way her humble background could compete with America’s royalty. How can he melt the ice around her heart and convince her that Mr. Wrong is actually Mr. Right, who loves her just the way she is?

EXCERPT:

Liddy maneuvered back to the bed to sit and strip. Staying off her foot for three days was certainly no picnic, but she was determined to heal completely. She’d always been a good patient, convinced the more strict one followed the rules, the faster one healed. If only she’d been that way in her relationships.
The click of the door pulled her from the memory.
“Liddy,” an unmistakably male voice called out. “I have ice.”
Luke!
She froze.
Shit! There she stood by the side of the bed, stark naked, and Luke had just entered the cabin.
She dropped the crutches and belly-flopped across the bed, yanking the covers over her. Her heart hammered in her chest like a racehorse.
“There you are. How come your leg isn’t up?”
She lifted her head to see him standing at her feet, hands on his hips. “Um, I wanted to take a bath.”
He glanced at the open bathroom door, where the water was still going. “How’s that working for ya’, since you’re still in bed?” His head tipped to the side and his eyebrows lifted. “There’s no slacking in rehab.”
Before she could respond, he whipped the covers off, exposing the backside of her completely naked body.
She shrieked.“Time to . . . Oh, holy hell!”
“Luke!” She reached for the covers, but she wasn’t fast enough.
He pulled them away, dangling just out of her reach. “Oh, no you don’t. That has to be the most gorgeous ass I’ve ever seen in my life.”
“Luke! You asshole! Don’t you even knock?!”
He raised the sheet. When she grabbed it, he didn’t let go. Instead, he stepped forward, knelt one knee beside her thighs, and leaned down over her back until his lips were mere inches from her ear. “Knock? If you want, I’ll knock you screaming and panting into next week.”

Take Me In The Night by R.L. Kenderson



Today we have the blog tour for R.L. Kenderson’s TAKE ME IN THE NIGHT! Check it out and order your copy today!

Title: Take Me In the Night

Author: R.L. Kenderson

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About TAKE ME IN THE NIGHT:

First, he took my heart. It started in high school. I was his girlfriend…he was the love of my life. We had plans for after graduation. We were going to escape—he from his family’s reputation and me from my father’s control. But all that changed the summer before college. Charged with a crime he hadn’t committed, he was whisked away from life, never to be heard from again. Then, he takes my body. Twelve years later, he’s back. He’s bigger, he’s tougher, and he’s harder around the edges. He’s no longer the boy I fell in love with. But I’m no longer the girl who gave him her heart. Everything’s changed between us. Anger, resentment, and bitterness have replaced happiness, love, and trust. Except for when darkness falls. That’s when he comes to me at night, taking what is still his. Now, he’s going to take my soul. When the lines between our old love and our new hate begin to blur, I know that, this time, I might not survive if he leaves.
 

MY REVIEW:

I love a good old love returning story, and this was a good one. There is conflict, misunderstanding, passion, and mystery. All the things you look for in an addicting read. This book gave me all I wanted and more, I wasn’t sure how it would end at some points. They have that epic high school love story that you root for. The two that shouldn’t be together yet you can’t see them with anyone else either. Something goes horribly wrong though and they get separated. As the description says they come back to the same town to discover the feelings never really died. However, can they let the past go and move forward even with all the roadblocks in their way? You will have to read and find out. I do hope this author writes more in the series I really liked the friends and some of the secondary characters in this book. Go now and grab your copy so you can know what I am talking about. ;-) message me on Facebook and let me know who your favorite character in the book is! Enjoy this one in your favorite reading spot now…

About R.L. Kenderson:

R.L. Kenderson is two best friends writing under one name. Renae has always loved reading, and in third grade, she wrote her first poem where she learned she might have a knack for this writing thing. Lara remembers sneaking her grandmother’s Harlequin novels when she was probably too young to be reading them, and since then, she knew she wanted to write her own. When they met in college, they bonded over their love of reading and the TV show Charmed. What really spiced up their friendship was when Lara introduced Renae to romance novels. When they discovered their first vampire romance, they knew there would always be a special place in their hearts for paranormal romance. After being unable to find certain storylines and characteristics they wanted to read about in the hundreds of books they consumed, they decided to write their own. One lives in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and the other in the Kansas City area where they’re a sonographer/stay-at-home mom/wife and pharmacist/mother by day, and together they’re a sexy author by night.

About LAWBREAKER: Raised on the streets, Shay Morgan yearns for a real family, where love is unconditionally offered—even when trust doesn’t come easy. Before that day arrives, she trespasses and steals in order to provide for the few people who’ve gone out of their way to protect her. Born to privilege, Ben Bishop loathes his family for the despicable things they’ve done, and not done. He vows to be different, play by the rules, do the right thing.

He demonstrates the virtue of following it. Then a far-reaching crime is suddenly exposed—that his family committed.

Exclusive LAWBREAKER Excerpt:


From Ben's point of view... The rumble of the idling V8 engine vibrated through the truck. Faint gasoline fumes wafted in through the cranked-down windows, then blew out just as fast on the crosswind. But none of those distractions fazed Shay. Her attention had fixed solely on me. “Why do you like me?” “More than like you.” She didn’t say anything to my clarification. Instead, those expressive green eyes searched mine. Her chest rose with a measured inhale, fell on a slower exhale. Her slender brows twitched down for a split second. “But why?” A million reasons came to mind. But in that moment, one echoed with more force than the rest. “You live loud...without saying a word. When you’re around, you drown out all the noise. When I’m with you, there is nothing else.” Silence filled the cab. We sat on opposite sides. Lap belts held us securely down. But she flattened her small hand over the worn leather of the bench seat, into the space between us. I bridged the remaining gap, spread my fingers wide, until my larger pinky touched hers, knuckle to tip. Long seconds drifted by. The engine rumbled. The crosswind blew. But we didn’t move away from our fragile connection. We stared at each other...and saw through every defense we’d built. As we inhaled and exhaled, breaths coming faster, shallower, I got the sense that we breathed common air for the very first time. We’d come from different worlds, but we occupied the same space in that moment. In spite of our differences. Maybe because of them. But on her next quick breath, her brow furrowed. Her hand twitched away. Whatever she struggled with had broken through. That spiky armor clamped back around her. Moment over. And yet, she still stared at me. Gaze fierce. Jaw set. “When I’m with you, I become someone else. I forget who I am. And I can’t let that happen. You make me believe I can trust again. And that terrifies me.” I stared back at her, undaunted. “I will never let you forget who you are. Become someone else with me, someone better. Get terrified; we’ll only grow stronger.” After a long beat, she sucked in a deep breath. Then she pursed her lips and blew it out, nice and slow. She remained silent. Committed to nothing. But then I felt her pinky press against mine. Tentative, at first. Then firmer, solid. She’d spoken, in her own way. And I’d heard loud and clear: I’ll become someone better, I’ll get terrified...just as long as you don’t let me down. I gusted out a relieved sigh. “Well, hell. No pressure there.” She didn’t laugh. Her eyes narrowed. I reached farther and slid my hand over hers. “I won’t let you down.” Nothing in the world could make me blow this...even though the weight of our world rested on my shoulders. Including lightening the mood. Now. Before she changes her mind and bolts from your truck.

BOOK ONE:



As the Dating Guy on L.A.'s top morning show, I give the single guy's perspective on dating, love, and sex―and I give great advice. Everyone's hooking up…well, except for me. Sure, I can get any woman I want, but I've got a "no relationship" clause in my contract and the only woman I want has "relationship" written all over her. Probably stamped on her ass, too. And wouldn't I like to confirm that.
Unfortunately, she wants nothing to do with me. At all. Something about the next Ice Age might have even come up in her rebuttal. Adorable. Because she's determined to ignore what one simple kiss proved: she wants me as badly as I want her.
Everything in me is screaming to go after her, but I've got a secret that I'm fairly certain will end up with her roasting my nuts over an open fire. So, job on the line? Check. Nuts on the line? Check. Can't get her out of my head? Nail…meet coffin. But what a way to go…
Each book in the Wherever You Go series is STANDALONE:
* Talk British to Me
* Lips Close to Mine
* Too Hard to Resist



Review:

                So this author was suggested to me by a trusted friend and I had to read it. I mean just look at the cover and who doesn’t like a British accent. Well only a couple paragraph’s in and I was not going to be able to stop. The problem was I was at work; they tend to frown on you reading instead to working. So I had to stop and start again after the kids when to sleep. Reading about Mateo and Teague (by the way I love this name!) was so entertaining I had trouble going to sleep. Mateo had so much arrogance, I mean it was huge, that you have to laugh, and I liked that Teague could see the real him. They are both very wealthy with family money yet both insist of making their own way in the world. This for me made the characters more relatable and pulled at my heart. You want to root for their love to overcome their joint stubbornness. The way the supporting characters are woven in also makes you crave more. Need to know what happens with the friends, do they find love, do they stay single?  FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS BOOKS WHAT HAPPENS!!  I am happy to report there are two other books in this series! I will be reviewing the rest as well. For now if you have yet to read this please go buy it curl up in your favorite spot and enjoy!


                                                                      BOOK Two:
                                                                        
                                                                           

I wasn't supposed to see Levi Pierce ever again. A few months ago, we had one incredible date. One. That's how I like it.


End of story.
Only it wasn't. Pretty soon everywhere I turn, I see him. Our best friends are dating. My mother mistakenly--and happily--thinks he's my plus-one to my cousin's wedding. And he's the guy I have to work with on the most important job opportunity of my life.
Here's my problem: I like Levi. I like his killer smile, his dreamboat eyes, and definitely the way he makes me feel. But I've sworn off relationships. So when the sexual tension reaches epic proportions, I tell myself it's temporary. When I start to feel more, I tell myself it's over.
Only Levi isn't a forget-it kind of guy. When his lips are close to mine, and he swears he's always wanted me, my defenses disappear. But he's heading off to new adventures an ocean away, and some things in life just aren't meant to be.
Right?




REVIEW:

Where do I start, lol I know how about with the first time we are introduced to these two. Levi and Harper are in the first book Talk British to Me; however we don’t realize they know each other until almost the end. It is a WOW moment and I for one was thrilled to read their story. Robin set this one up perfectly! Levi and Harper have a past and future connection that is perfectly written into this story. Harper has suffered a tragedy no one should and it has molded her life into what she feels is safe and what ‘must be’. She will even fight anyone who tries to screw it up, including her own heart.
                Levi, hmm, what to say what to say. How about WOW, he is the full package. He is sweet, attentive, romantic, and loyal to a fault. However he too has a past hurt that is forcing him to see only what he wants on the surface. What does he want you ask, Harper in his bed, not his heart, Not his life, just between the sheets. It is fun to read about these two because they are so clueless to what is happening and what could be an epic romance they try to put in a box. The banter, the play, the chemistry, all is written to PERFECTION. I had a hard time at work because I didn’t want to put it down after my breaks were over. So grab this awesome book NOW curl up and start reading in your favorite spot. 

                                                                  BOOK Three:

One rookie assistant + one demanding executive = flirting that is too hot to handle.
Have you ever wished for the perfect job? Me, too. So when I land a temporary gig with a worthwhile and exemplary startup, I'm determined to make it permanent. That my boss is the gorgeous, clever Elliot Sax is nothing I can't handle. We may steal glances at each other and straddle the line of playing it safe, but our partnership is too important for complications. Not to mention workplace hookups are against the rules.
But when our attraction flames hotter, our best efforts are put to the test. I never imagined having to fight my feelings for him on a daily basis and keeping my hands to myself is absolutely killing me.
Until I can't. Until we can't. And what's at stake becomes more than our jobs. What's at risk is our hearts.

REVIEW:
Book Three in the Wherever you Go series did not disappoint. In most series there is always something in each that grasp on to my heart. In book one I could relate to Teague a lot and felt at times she was like me. In book 2 it was Levi that pulled me in and Harper that made me shake my head. However, this book is my favorite because I felt everything. I understood a lot of what Madison was going through with being cheated on and trying to wade through the jerks to see if any decent guys are out there. Lol I am still looking. Elliot has a drive to succeed because it’s how he survived being the middle child in a home that was hard on him. These two have known each other for so long in never even occurs to them they could like each other. I think it’s what made this story so real for me. We can go through our days so focused on what we want sometimes we forget or don’t see what we need.
                Elliot was a playboy in the first two books and I wondered how Robin was going to bring the REAL Elliot out. Once again she did it naturally it’s not all at once and even he is surprised at the amount of himself he shares with Madison. Now Madison is another story, we get to know her in book one, two and this one even more. She is such a kind person you can’t help but love her. Add in that she went to college, has a degree, is not wanting to live off her parents (who are LOADED) and what is not to love? Robin created these characters that may come from money but they want/need to succeed on their own and I loved that! Now there is one part that made me laugh because I don’t know if it’s the mom in me or the fact that I hate washing dishes but… There is a scene that both Madison and Elliot are doing dishes by hand in one of the Mansions their families own. This was funny to me because if I had a Mansion I would either hire someone to do the dishes or have a dishwasher. I was however impressed that they both knew how to do dishes in the first place. This is what I mean by Robin giving her characters more depth and realness.  Alight you know what I’m going to say, go grab this book and read it in your favorite spot.
