WE OWN TONIGHT by Corinne Michaels: Book Release & Review

 

From New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Corinne Michaels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE romance novel.

WE OWN TONIGHT is available now!

 

I’m not a one-night stand kind of woman. I’m especially not the woman who has a few drinks at a concert and ends up in bed with my childhood celebrity crush, Eli Walsh.

However, that’s exactly where I find myself.

What’s a girl to do after a drunken mistake? Run. I grab my clothes and get away from the powerful, irresistible, and best-sex-of-my-life superstar as fast as I can. His gorgeous green eyes, rock-hard body, and cocky smile have no place in my world. My life is complicated enough.

Someone forgot to tell him that.

Eli is relentless. Pushing his way into my heart, wearing me down, proving he’s nothing like I assumed, and everything I need. But when my world shatters to pieces, he holds the broken bits together. Unwillingly, I fall desperately in love with him.

He made me think we’d have forever . . . I should’ve listened when he said we could only own tonight.

 

MICHELLE’S REVIEW

OMG this book. Eli. He’s mine. Back off everyone.

So this book is basically your childhood fantasy come to life. Doesn’t matter what age you are- if you had a crush on any man in a boyband- this book is for you. You will read this book an imagine yourself to actually be Heather living your teenage dream of having your favorite member of your favorite boyband love you. Like LOVE YOU.

That’s right ladies. Eli Walsh is the lead singer of a boy band. But like NKOTB. So he’s like Donnie Wahlberg. I mean can you imagine Donnie being in love with you??

I am rambling. I know it. But I absolutely loved this book. Corinne will tell you that this is her attempt at light and fluffy but she is 100% not capable of light and fluffy and just needs to give it up.

What she is capable of is writing an amazing story with amazing character that you will fall in love with. And she’s also capable of making you cry. You will cry. I can’t even tell you why but you will.

These characters are amazing. They are relatable, easy to love and just so fun. While I make fun of Corinne for calling this lighthearted- she does do a great job of injecting pieces of humor into the story.

This is one of my favorite reads of the year. It took me back to feeling like a pre teen and being convinced that one of those boy band members could fall in love with me. And I loved every second!

DRUNK DIAL by Penelope Ward: Book Tour & Review

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

MICHELLE’S REVIEW

So I have to admit that what drew me to this book was not that I’m a fan of the author or the cover. For me – it was the blurb. I am one of the girls that still thinks about my high school crush.

Rana’s long time love and pent up feelings for Landon are something I so relate too. Now – I can’t do this with my crush since we’re still friends and he’s happily married to a wonderful woman with 3 beautiful boys- but the idea of this story had me hooked.

I’ve come to really enjoy books where the relationships build up even when the two people aren’t in the same physical location. Penelope did a great job with building up the sexual tension for these two so that bringing them together- Lord Jesus!!

I’ve seen some early comments from the bottom feeders of Goodreads and let me say- yes this is a HEA and you can pretty much guess how it’s going to end up going down but that’s ok. And you know why?? Cause it’s a Romance and that’s why we read it! We want the fantasy of our dreams as a little girl and a grown ass woman to all come true. We want the perfect guy to also be a great guy and Landon is Swoontastic. Omg. Book boyfriend material.

Rana speaks to me and I really enjoyed her. I’ll admit that the story dragged a little for me at one point but for the most part – I truly enjoyed it and I loved a little bit of living a fantasy of mine through these characters.

ROYALLY ENDOWED by Emma Chase: Book Release & Review

 

 

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
***
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

MICHELLE’S REVIEW

Lovers. I am absolutely in love with Emma Chase’s book and this Royal series has just been perfection all the way through. In this third installment- we get a great love story between Ellie, Olivia’s sister, and Logan, Prince Nicholas’ most trusted body guard.

It’s amazing. So first- this book spans a long time because Ellie is in High School when this first starts up. So this book sort of starts in the middle of book 1, goes through book 2 and then goes a little past that.

And that was one my favorite parts of it. It was such a build. I mean as a reader- you are fully invested in these two making it.

The book opens with a scene towards the end and the tension builds from there. I’ll admit, for me, that the drama around that moment ended up being a little less exciting than I expected. It was still great and a great build up but some of the scene was just surprising for me. What I did love was the timing- Emma Chase left time for us to experience the couple post major drama and I love that. I don’t like rushed endings and this one most certainly is not a rushed ending.

Ultimately – this is a great book. Ellie is so damn lovable and Logan. Oh. Em. Gee. He’s such a great hero. Top book boyfriend material ladies.

And once again- if you’re obsessed with Royalty, like I am, you will just love this whole series. It’s like reading about William, Kate, Henry, Pippa and all their friend. I love it. Every bit of it.

But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.

Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.

My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.

There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.

“Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”

And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.

I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.

Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”

There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.

And Logan’s watching me again.

Watching my mouth.

His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced. Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.

I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.

And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.

Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.
