EVERY LITTLE THING by Samantha Young: Book Release & Review

9781101991695

Hartwell, Delaware—the perfect place to get away from it all, and find what you never knew you needed…

Bailey Hartwell has many reasons to feel content—her successful business, a close circle of friends, and her steady boyfriend…even if their romance feels staid after ten years without a serious commitment. The only challenge in her life comes in the form of sexy businessman Vaughn Tremaine. She thinks the ex-New Yorker acts superior and that he considers her a small-town nobody. But when Bailey’s blindsided by a betrayal, she’s shocked to discover Vaughn is actually a decent guy.

Vaughn admires Bailey’s free spirit, independence, and loyalty. As his passion for her has grown, his antagonism toward her has only worsened. Every little thing Bailey does seduces him. But when Vaughn’s painful emotional past makes him walk away in fear he will hurt her, it opens an old wound in Bailey, and she uncharacteristically retreats.

Once Vaughn begins to realize he’s made the biggest mistake of his life, he has no choice but to fight like he’s never fought before to convince Bailey that the love they’ve found together only comes around once in a lifetime.

You all know that there is no book boyfriend I love more than Braden Carmichael. But Vaughn Tremaine might be my new addiction. At least he’s my current addiction.

I absolutely loved EVERY LITTLE THING by Samantha Young. I really enjoyed the first book in the Hart’s Boardwalk series but Vaughn and Bailey’s story was just amazing.

Bailey is the kind of heroine you fall in love with because she’s just great and the kind of woman you can imagine being friends with. Vaughn and Bailey have been fighting their attraction to one another since the beginning. It’s great because all that witty banter makes for some great foreplay in between the sheets!

And Vaughn is just perfect. That blend of Alpha and the kind of guy that loves a strong woman is the perfect hero for me. He admires Bailey’s strength and her fire but he also doesn’t hesitate to protect her. Just swoon.

The back and forth between these two is at times maddening but when it all comes together- it’s totally worth it. Yes- there are great sexy times. But beyond that- this story is the kind where the connection between the two characters is so perfect that you almost feel like you are experiencing their love with them.

It’s the way I felt about Braden and Joss in ON DUBLIN STREET and I think that’s why I loved this book so much. I mean anything that reminds me of my favorite romance ever is going to be a win. But Vaughn and Bailey’s story is different and stands on its own.

If you’re a fan of Samantha Young – you will fall in love with this book.

THE ONE REAL THING – Book #1 in the Hart’s Boardwalk Series

Read Pepper and Michelle’s Joint Review HERE

Welcome to Hartwell, a quiet seaside escape where uncovering old secrets could lead one woman to discover the meaning of a love that lasts…

While Doctor Jessica Huntington engages with the inmates at the women’s correctional facility where she works, she’s always careful to avoid emotional attachments in her personal life. Loss and betrayal taught her that lesson long ago. But when she comes across a set of old love letters in the prison’s library and visits the picturesque town of Hartwell to deliver them to their intended recipient, she finds herself unable to resist the town’s charm—and her attraction to the sexy owner of a local bar proves equally hard to deny.

Since his divorce from his unfaithful ex-wife, Cooper Lawson has focused on what really matters: his family and the boardwalk pub they’ve owned for generations. But the first time Jessica steps into his bar, Cooper is beyond tempted to risk his heart on her.

Yet as their attraction grows hotter and Jessica remains stubbornly closed off, he begins to realize it will take more than just passion to convince her there’s only one real thing in life worth fighting for…

A new lead singer brings with him a hot tour invite, but with a catch—his sister has to come with them. Despite an off limits edict, Adam is instantly attracted the smart and beautiful Landry. But if he wants to claim his woman, it might be at the expense of all his ambitions.

Landry Olsen has had success at every stage of her life, except when it comes to men. She’s put her heart on the shelf, but one look at Adam and she’s a goner. The hot rocker heats her from the inside out, and she wants him as much as he wants her. The only thing standing in their way of their happiness is Landry’s brother—she ruined his musical hopes before, and she won’t do it again.

MICHELLE’S REVIEW

I love everything that JenFred writes but I fell in love with her books because of the WOODLANDS series. So I can’t tell you how excited I was to return to these characters with Adam’s story.

I first really became intrigued by Adam during Finn’s story. Sure- he’s a rocker- but there was always something really sweet about him.

And this books further proves that.

When he first lays eyes on Landry- he’s hooked. Except she’s his new front man’s, Davis, sister. And Davis is too good and also the person that Adam believes will solidify his bands success. Top that off with a few other reasons why Landry is untouchable and Adam is faced with a serious case of the blue balls.

This book is definitely the slow burn variety and it’s so great. I absolutely loved the friendship that builds between these two and when they do come together- fireworks!

This book has a perfect balance of humor, steam and romance that make it a book you won’t want to put down.

While this is part of the Woodlands series, it could be read as a standalone. I hope that we get a spin off series of Adam’s band mates!!! Because…

PUCKED OFF by Helena Hunting: Book Release & Excerpt

 

POAN

Pucked Off, an all-new emotional and sexy STANDALONE from Helena Hunting is LIVE!!

Pucked Off by Helena Hunting
Genre: Contemporary Romance

businessman working on laptop  in black suit

***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance.”

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do.

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.

Excerpt:

Armed with my clipboard, I walk down the hall to the waiting room. Lance is impossible to miss. Despite the fact that he’s wearing a sweatshirt and the hood is covering half of his face, he’s more than six feet of broad, hockey-playing man.

He’s so wide his shoulders encroach on the chairs on either side, which would explain why no one is sitting next to him. He’s slouched down so his head rests on the back of the chair, and his hands are clasped in his lap, a baseball cap hanging off one knee. His lips, plush and soft—I know since I’ve had them on mine; it might have been a decade ago, but I remember it clearly—are parted. He looks like he’s asleep.

I clear my throat. “Lance Romero?”

He doesn’t move.

Bernadette, the receptionist, gives me a meaningful look.

I clear my throat again and call his name a second time. He jolts awake and the hood falls back, exposing his face. It’s not in good shape. He has a black eye and bruises on his left cheek. There’s a fly bandage across one eyebrow.

Sadly, he’s still hot.

He blinks a few times, yawns, and smacks his lips, his tongue touching the split in the bottom one. His gaze sweeps the room and finally lands on me. Heat explodes in my cheeks and courses through my limbs, warming me from the inside out as he starts at my sneaker-clad feet and roams up over my yoga pants to my company-issued T-shirt before stopping at my face. I can’t look directly at him for more than a couple of seconds. I sincerely hope he doesn’t remember me. I cannot go there and also be professional.

I’m sure the smile he gives me has melted many a panty off a slutty bunny. Mine stay right where they’re supposed to, wedged up my ass.

I force a polite, professional veneer. “I’m ready for you now.”
