Undeniable by Aleatha Romig
Forbidden love... is undeniable.

When she was younger, like all little girls, Sophie Hawkins believed in fantasies. She believed in happily-ever-after and that one day her prince would come. What made Sophie’s dreams a bit different was that the man of her dreams wasn’t a fictional prince but her best friend’s dad.

Matt was handsome and nice, the kind of man every woman would want.

Time passes, and through the years, Sophie’s reality changes, yet her attraction and memories of Matt Hamilton never fade. Where boys and men are concerned, Matt remains her gold standard.

When his daughter was young, Matt Hamilton had it all: a family and success.

With the ticking of the clock and changing of the calendar, seasons pass and situations adjust. Business success remains, but personally, his world changes…until the day fate sets the undeniable in motion.

Sophie was a sweet little girl, his daughter’s best friend, and a ray of undeniable sunshine. That was before. Now she’s more. She is a grown woman.

Who can deny the undeniable?

Have you been Aleatha’d?

Until he finds her.

For Leo, Mia Kovács is like a prize, a gift wrapped in passion and devotion.
And she’s his—his very own secret he doesn’t have to share.
Together, they can overcome anything…
heartache and destruction, guilt and regret.

Mia gives Leo everything he didn’t know he needed,
including her fragile heart.
The only thing she doesn’t give him...
are secrets of her own.

Release Blitz ➤ Hit and Run by Lori Matthews

Hit and Run by Lori Matthews

Dani Pierce is a master of the dark web - but now trouble has arrived at her front door.

Hit and Run by Lori Matthews
When a fiercely independent hacker gets in over her head, her gruff bodyguard must save them both from a web of deceit and betrayal without destroying her software or their budding love.

Gage Callahan knew his latest assignment with Callahan Security was going to be a disaster. He traipsed around Europe to locate the computer programmer he was hired to protect only to discover she's actually a hacker hiding in Alaska. Tensions mount when she narrowly escapes becoming roadkill as a vicious organization comes after her. It will take all his ingenuity to rush her to safety, especially when Gage's primary objective...get her and the prototype to New York...becomes secondary to protecting his heart from a fatal attraction to the spunky woman.

Dani Pierce is used to working on the dark web but now she is truly scared because deadly trouble has arrived at her front door. The self-reliant hacker knows she'll need help to survive her contract to build facial recognition software. The aggravating yet handsome man hired to protect her makes it clear he detests her, but that doesn't stop her from developing feelings for him.

It soon becomes apparent to Gage that Dani's in deeper than she'll admit but her answers don't explain why the deadly gang after her is always one step ahead. It will take his military skills and her hacking know-how to save not only their butts, but the budding love they've discovered in the midst of danger.

What readers are saying:

The courtroom scenes are wonderfully written...the characters are well described and the author paints a picture of each in the mind of the reader...Strong plot, strong characters and a strong writing style that I really enjoyed. This one is a definite "thumbs-up." Strongly recommend! I look forward to reading additional works by N. Lombardi, Jr.
Kim M Aalaie, Author's Den

The courtroom action is excellent, trimmed to the most gripping parts of the trial, with plenty of emotional impact...a fairly realistic portrayal of the way small-town US society works...a fast-moving story with plenty of dramatic moments, and a big twist in the final pages.

Hardest Fall by Juliette Cross

He had a piece of me inside him, holding his heart together. That magnificent heart that cared for others without cause.

Hardest Fall by Juliette Cross
The tattooed demoness, Bone, doesn’t like anything except the magical weapons she makes. But she has hidden talents few know about. When I was brought to her near death, she used her Seraph song to manipulate flesh and bone to heal me. But she wasn’t happy about it.

Now I must return the favor. Even though she refuses to take sides in the apocalypse, there’s one job she’s not willing to do for the demon prince Rook. If she doesn’t, her head will end up on a spike. Of course, there’s a good chance we’re all going to die anyway, but I will do anything to protect this fierce woman—and not just because she saved me.

So, we’re both off to kill a demon—or three—and possibly save the world.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I actually got a lot of reading done since my last post. I read a few ARCs, some books that were generously sent to me, and I even read a book that I've been dying to read for far too long. The books I've finished are:

Hardest Fall by Juliette Cross - after reading the first and last book in this series, I always wanted to read the second book to get into the details I missed and I finally did! It was magnificent and if you love paranormal/fantasy romance, you'll love these books!

The Wolf by Jade Marshall - after getting a copy from the author, I dived into this MC romance and I have no regrets. Gritty premise, gritty characters, gritty world. It gave me the right impression for her writing and I look forward to more.

Rogue by Olivia Hayle - a sweetly romantic second chance love story. Boy is from the wrong side of the tracks, girl is part of the privileged class. Tons of angst and drama and etc. A solid intro to this author's work.

Slammer by Tabatha Vargo - a heartbreaking tale of a nurse falling in love with someone deemed the most dangerous inmate in the super max prison she works in. It had a dirty, taboo feel and I actually really enjoyed it.

Lured by Rina Kent - this author has been recommended to me quite a few times, for this series in particular, but after this read, I'm not really seeing why. Her writing was excellent so I might give her another try.

The Comedian by Sean-Paul Thomas - a short story about a middle aged man confronting his demons. Thomas has a lyrical way of writing that I like a lot.

The Letter by Sean-Paul Thomas - another short story, this one tells the tale of a young woman who finally steps out of her comfort zone.

The Conviction by John Matthews - this thriller takes the reader on a journey of justice... vigilante justice.

Leo by Jay McLean - a YA/NA romance that I'm hoping to love as much as I loved his brother's books. After falling in love with this author's More Than series, I didn't doubt I'd love these Preston boys :D

Heartless by Marissa Meyer - I'm really struggling with this book. I'm still at the beginning and I put it down a few days ago and I'm trying to find a reason to pick it back up. HELP!

Vixen by Rebecca Zanetti - I'm a huge fan of this author and a HUGE fan of this series. There was no way that a new book would be coming out and I wasn't gonna read it. I've got an ARC and I'm super happy!

The Last Ten Books I Added to my TBR

July 28, 2020

Welcome to another TTT, hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl! This week ended up being a FREEBIE, where we get to come up with our own topic. I decided to keep mine super basic because it will be what helps the most in the end. My TBR seems to be never-ending, as I'm sure is true for most of you, and I always need help culling its contents. When the new year came around, I promised myself that for every dozen or so books I added to it, I would read at least one immediately. So here are the latest books and maybe you can help me choose one to get started...

First Second Coming by Jeff Pollak

First Second Coming by Jeff Pollak
In 2027 the deity known as NTG – short for New Testament God – retires after more than two thousand years of minding the store for his employer, Milky Way Galaxy, Inc. The new god, a planetary turnaround specialist, must decide whether Earth’s dominant species should or should not be included in his plan to bring the planet back into full compliance with Milky Way Galaxy, Inc.’s planetary operation standards.

Earth’s new God introduces himself to humanity by unexpectedly appearing on the Ram Forrester Hour talk show. Ram, an atheist, and co-host Brendali Santamaria, a devout Catholic, are stunned. God's interview, beamed worldwide, shocks and infuriates viewers. They learn that a sixty-day conference will take place in Los Angeles to determine whether humans are capable of helping him implement his planetary turnaround plan. All those attending must do to earn mankind a coveted spot in this God’s good graces is eliminate religious violence forever, without his heavenly help. Failure means extinction.

God designates Ram and Bren as the conference’s only authorized media reporters. This assignment, fraught with peril, ignites their romance. Not only must the harried couple attend the conference meetings by day and do their show at night, they must also outwit a group of religious fanatics bent on killing them. When conflicts within the conference intensify, it’s up to Ram and Bren to do whatever it takes to protect their budding romance and assure mankind’s survival.

Rogue by Olivia Hayle

Rogue by Olivia Hayle

He's bad news with a broken smile

Rogue by Olivia Hayle
Hayden Cole was good times dressed like bad news.

Dark hair falling over eyes that had seen too much.
Full lips curving into a smile that set my body on fire.
The way he disliked everything about my sheltered world, except me.

I spent years in love with the groundkeeper’s nephew.
In the darkness, in the silence, our hearts spoke the same language.
Until he left without a word and tore mine right out of my chest.

Ten years later he’s back from the Navy.
He’s every inch the rogue I remember—broken smiles and amber eyes. And he’s determined to fix the wounds of the past

Lily Marchand was everything I knew I could never have.

The golden child of my uncle’s rich employer. She has always been so painfully out of my reach.
I’d known it, and I reached for her anyway, and it led to disaster.

This happened to be another slow reading week for me. I thought with the momentum I found last week, I could keep the speed reading train going... but no. However, something is better than nothing and I least I did get a chance to read something.

I've just finished the following books:

crash into me la fiore first second coming jeff pollak it was always you ari reavis

Crash Into Me by L.A. Fiore
It's a murder mystery sprinkled liberally with sexy romance. I'm a HUGE fan of Fiore and this book was one of her finest. She writes stories that are intense and attention-grabbing. I can't get enough of her words.

First Second Coming by Jeff Pollak - review to come
At its core, this story is about the theoretical Second Coming. God works for a corporation that rules the planets and Earth is slacking. He's a fixer and gives humans 60 days to end the violence that has spread in the name of religion. All religious leaders have to come together to formulate a plan to achieve peace or face human extinction. I received this book as an ARC and wasn't sure what to expect. It. Blew. Me. Away!!

It Was Always You by Ari Reavis
Reavis is one of those authors who writes incredibly beautiful and sexy stories, but is so underrated. How more people haven't read her books is a dang mystery to me. I love her writing so much that I've made it my mission to not only purchase everything she produces, but to get the word out there so more people can fall in love with the wonder that she creates. This particular story was about a man who knows who he wants for his forever (if only she'd get out of her own way) and a woman who is afraid to love based on pain from her childhood. Great story!

The Promised Neverland by Kaiu Shirai
I'm actually on the last story arc, so maybe about 20 more chapters. This story is so much better than I originally expected it to be and I can't even imagine how I'm going to review this in a way that will accurately describe all of my feelings.

Any Day Now by Lani Lynn Vale
I haven't found a story from this author that I haven't enjoyed yet. I've only read a fraction of her work, but everything I've gobbled up has been amazing and I expect no different from this story. I'm already in love with it and I'm not even halfway through.

After last week's post, I left the decision for what I'll read next in the hands of fellow readers. The results were:

heartless by marissa meyer the diabolic by sj kincaid

Heartless by Marissa Meyer - Long before she was the terror of Wonderland—the infamous Queen of Hearts—she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid - Red Queen meets The Hunger Games in this epic novel about what happens when a senator’s daughter is summoned to the galactic court as a hostage, but she’s really the galaxy’s most dangerous weapon in disguise.
