DEAR BRIDGET, I WANT YOU by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland: Book Release & Review

Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.

No questions asked.

Think about it.

Or don’t.

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

–Simon

MICHELLE’S REVIEW

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward should write all the books.

Once again PenVi (or ViPen) has written an amazing story that keeps you hooked from cover to cover.

I could end this review by saying that there is a hot British doctor named Simon as our hero and that’s all you need to know. And that should be enough.

But to top off that delicious British sex on a stick that ViPen gave us- they also gave us a kick ass heroine in Bridget. As you know, we at ARR need our strong heroines as much as we need strong a strong leading man. And we got it.

This book is told in dueling POV and with an extra twist of super fun letters that are sexy, sweet and funny.

The whole book is really just a sweet romance that leaves you satisfied and wanting more from these authors- anything more!

If you’ve not read books by this duo- you can start with any of their joint books so might as well start here!

PLAY ON by Samantha Young: Book Release

Lovers! It’s live – go get this book! It’s one of our favs of the year!!

Nora O’Brien chased a dream from Indiana to Scotland, so sure it was the right thing to do. Three years later she was left in her adopted country with nothing to her name but guilt and regret.Until Aidan Lennox entered her life.Older, worldlier, a music producer and composer, the sexy Scot should never have made sense for Nora. But somehow in each other they found the light they were looking for, the laughter and the passion—the strength to play on despite their past losses.

But when life dealt Aidan another unlucky hand, instead of reaching for her he disappeared. The agonizing loss of him inspired something within Nora. It fired her spirit— the anger and hurt pushing her forward to take control and reach for her dreams.

Finally pursuing a career on stage while she put herself through college, everything is how Nora wants it. She’s avoiding heartbreak and concentrating on her goals.

Sounds easy but it’s not. Because Aidan is back. And for some reason he hates Nora.

He’s determined to be at war with her.

And she has absolutely no idea why.

Out September 12th 2017 in digital and paperback edition!

MICHELLE’S REVIEW

It’s safe to say Samantha Young is my favorite author. Her books consistently captivate me and blow me away.

PLAY ON was just- lovers- there are no words. I couldn’t put it down. From the first page, it had me completely captivated. The story itself was so interesting and refreshingly different from what’s out there. And I have to be honest- there were pieces of this that reminded me of ON DUBLIN STREET which is of course my favorite book. The broken hearts of the two main characters were just so beautifully heartbreaking to experience and added so much to the story.

I’ll admit- there were a lot of times when both Nora and Aidan pissed me off. They were both sometimes so wrapped up in themselves and even in each other that they often got in their own way. But that was part of what made the story so interesting. I think sometimes we need to know that it’s ok to be a little selfish and maybe a little afraid to let people in. I know that’s something I personally deal with.

The story is divided into three parts and it’s unclear when you’re starting off- if you’ve read the synopsis- how it’s all going to happen. But as usual- Samantha weaves an intricate story that has you completely hooked.

I don’t want to say much more because I sincerely believe everyone should experience this book. It’s phenomenal and will definitely be a top read of 2017.

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!
