Review - Never Say Never by Aimee Duffy

You now those books you sit down and practically devour in one sitting? Yeah? Well this was one of them for me. Okay, it was actually two sittings, but the kindle died. :o/

This is the third book by the talented Aimee Duffy that I've read and think it was my favorite.  I loved The Monster of Fame, which was the first book in the series. But I think I loved this one just a pinch more. There was something about Sander from the beginning that just did me in and made me swoon. You see, I have a secret obsession with romances that have the heros as movie stars who fall in love with the everyday girl. While Sander wasn't a movie star, he was pretty darn close. And well, he just made my heart pitter patter. Each time he was in a scene and we got to be in his head, I wanted more and more Sander. Forget Chloe...Let's just change the heroines name to Lacey. <3

The chemistry in this book was hot. Ms. Duffy made us wait for the big bang scene. Which was fine. It really drew out the sexual tension. And there was a lot! This book was so much more than just the attraction that Chloe and Sander tried to fight. Ms. Duffy added a back story to both Chloe and Sander that tugged our hearts and made us keep reading to see how it all came togehter.

I really enjoyed this story and I think you will too!

Cover Reveal - Finally Found by Nicole Andrews Moore

Finally Found
By: Nicole Andrews Moore

Where one story ends, often another begins. For some reason, Adam Davenport can’t see past the ending. The hit and run has forced him to slow down and stop running from the pain of losing his parents. He has tried to hide behind meaningless, superficial relationships and even more shallow friendships, but the time has come to face his loneliness. Now he is finally ready to start being a family with his brother Sam. However, Sam and Haley, who was once Sam’s personal assistant, are too busy basking in their newfound love. Though breaking the rules for the first time ever has changed Sam’s life for the better, Adam has always broken the rules, strayed from responsibility, and done as little as he could get away with.

One of the main reasons that he refused to believe that Cammie was more than friend material was because she was impervious to his charms. She was so driven and determined to make her new catering company a success that she couldn’t see past her own dreams. Suddenly, Adam found himself behaving in ways he never imagined. He was working to impress a woman, but more than that, he was working to help make her dreams come true. He soon realizes that there are times in life when giving is more important than taking and when helping someone else is more important than what that person can do to reciprocate. He also learns there are times that the biggest risk is to stop hiding from emotions and to start allowing love to finally be found.

Never Say Never by Aimee Duffy

Book 2 in The Price of Fame Series

When pretend turns to desire, heartbreak is unavoidable.

Sander Chase needs a date for his ex-fiancée's engagement party, but he doesn't have time for a woman in his life. Between working on the TV show Do You Have What It Takes? and his band reforming, he's too busy for a relationship. What he needs is a pretend girlfriend. He thinks he may have found the perfect woman for the job, and the bribe he offers means she's sure to accept.

After losing her job in the film industry, breaking up with her movie star boyfriend, and finding out her mum has dementia, Chloe Butler returned to the UK determined to put her life back together. The last thing she needs is to parade around London on the arm of a celebrity, and after the heartbreak caused by her ex, she swore she'd never again date a star. But when Sander offers her a chance at her dream job, it's not something she can turn down.

As Chloe gets to know Sander she learns he's nothing like her scumbag ex. But she struggles to fight her attraction to him, knowing their relationship is only for show and their separation date is closing in fast.

Ignoring the insane chemistry between them should be easy for Sander, especially since he carries a secret that means there can be no future for them, but the more time he spends with Chloe, the harder it is to keep his hands to himself.

Content Warning: contains more denial than you'll find in a courtroom, more sexual tension than most people could handle, and explosive sex that some readers may find long overdue.

If being forced to team up with reality TV’s favorite bad girl wasn’t enough, falling for her brother might just make this reality show a real nightmare.

Paige Anderson agrees to be on a new reality show called Treasure Trekkers, a show where contestants use handheld GPS units to find hidden caches filled with prizes, with her good friend Cassidy. But when Cassidy is unable to compete, Chip Cormack, the show’s producer, steps in with a last-minute replacement to be Paige’s partner - Zoe Oliver, reality TV’s favorite bad girl.

Jack Miles (aka Miles) is a mountain climber with the body to prove it. Miles convinced his climbing partner Ben to come on the show with him for one reason - to prove to Ben that they can still hike together, regardless of the fact that Ben lost his foot in a tragic accident. Miles isn’t about to let anything get in his way of winning - not even beautiful Paige.

But when Miles and Paige are thrown into an alliance with their teammates, working closely together leads to more than just good strategy. Can Paige steal Miles’ heart while surviving Zoe long enough to win the game?

Breaking free from the confines of her privileged life will cost her everything, and the star-crossed couple will discover if they are destined to be together or fated to be apart.

Interview with Tamaria Soana and her new release Southern Embrace

Today I have Tamaria Soana on the blog for a little Q&A on her new release Southern Embrace.

Southern Embrace is a story that is very dear to your heart and the journey of getting this book written to published hasn’t been easy. Tell us a little about it?

I originally wrote Southern Embrace about a year and half ago. It was contracted by a Publisher that folded two days before it was to release. At this point it was only 8,000 words. I was giving a second chance with this story. After rereading it I decided to added almost 10,000 words that I believed only strengthened the story. To say I was thrilled that Beachwalk Press contracted it would be a major understatement!

You've done something different with this story. Instead of giving Savannah one hero in her life, you've given her two. In fact, both of them where men the reader could like. And Lance, the main hero, he has to redeem himself (the best type of romance). Did you have fun making him grovel and were you at all worried while writing that Savannah wouldn't forgive him?

And when a past flame threatens to overwhelm their new found romance, Matt must find a way to stake his claim to Carolina's heart before it's too late.
