Release Day Blitz: Nova by Rebecca Yarros



The only heart he wants is the one he already broke...

He's Landon Rhodes. The Renegade they call Nova. Sinfully gorgeous, broody, tatted-up, professional snowboarder. Four-time X Games medalist— Full-time heartbreaker.

They say a girl broke him once— That's why he's so reckless, so driven, so careless with his conquests.

But I'm that girl. They can call me his curse all they want. He and I both know the truth— He's the one who destroyed me, And I'm not the sucker who will let that happen again. 

***NOVA can be read as a standalone***

“How many have there been, Landon? How many memories are in your bed nowadays?” She forged on ahead, her eyes glossing over with a layer of what I was hesitant to call tears. “Can you remember them all?” 

Heat rushed through my veins, a nauseating mixture of anger, shame, and the bitter taste of regret. My brain screamed at me to retreat and lick my wounds, to try again with her when she wasn’t on offense. 

My heart reminded me that I was going to have to fight for this woman with every weapon in my arsenal if I wanted her. 

And damn, I wanted her. Craved her. Needed her. 

She was the only one I’d ever felt connected to—the only one my heart woke up and shook off the ice for. The only woman who challenged me and took me down in the process. 

I stepped forward and clamped both of my hands on the table, boxing her between my arms. She craned her head to keep my gaze, unwilling to back down. It was the quality that both frustrated the hell out of me and turned me on faster than anything—her constant refusal to yield for just a fucking second. “Can I remember them all? Probably not.” 

 She snorted. 

 “You want to know why?” I didn’t wait for her to answer. “Because blonde, redhead, brunette—I saw their features for a millisecond. The moment I had one of them in my bed, they all had eyes the color of dark chocolate and hair so black it was almost blue...” I glanced at her hair. “Or purple. I never needed to remember them, because they were always you.” 

“Don’t say things like that,” she begged. As if I could physically see her walls start to crumble, she softened. “You don’t get to say things like that to me. Not anymore.

The Room Mate by Kendall Ryan

The last time I saw my best friend’s younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check.

Now twenty-four, he’s broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot-something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, he’s pure temptation.

Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn’t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right?

I’m holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: he’s cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently he’s a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.

I’m calling bullshit. In fact, I’m going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better.

There’s no way I’m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we start…I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.

The prologue for this book threw caught my attention right off the bat. Actually, the first thought in my head was "what the heck did I just pick up?" Needless to say, The Room Mate caught my attention from the very first page. It was amusing to watch as Paige tried her hardest to ignore her attraction to Cannon, her best friend's brother. When Allie asks her to room her brother for a couple of months, she obliges, being the loyal friend she is. Being pulled by the guilt of breaking the BFF code, she tried her best avoid her growing attraction to her, now hot AF, best friend's little brother (why wasn't he still the nerdy little kid that followed them around?). Cannon is cocky and confident. He knows the effect he has on women and he's not afraid to use it. With Paige, it's no different. He senses that the feelings between them have shifted and he makes light of the most awkward of situations. The chemistry between the two of them resonates through the book. I kind of hoped for a bit more development in the characters. I felt like in the end, I still didn't know them as well as I wanted to. It was easy to get through and was definitely an enjoyable read.

Blog Tour: Any Time, Any Place by Jennifer Probst



HGTV’s Property Brothers meets The Marriage Bargain in this second volume in the Billionaire Builders series, an all-new heart-wrenching and sexy contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

When she was a teen, Raven Bella Stratton’s father was killed in a horrible car crash. The bigger shock was the discovery of a woman with him—Diana Pierce—and their two fully packed suitcases with airline tickets to Paris. Devastated by her father’s betrayal, Raven went to live with her aunt, never truly overcoming the traumatic event. When she discovers that the mysterious woman had a family with a husband and three boys, Raven vows to leave the memory of her father behind.

Until Dalton Pierce visits one night and suddenly her past challenges her future...

Leaving his life in California behind to run Pierce Construction with his two older brothers, Dalton Pierce has enjoyed returning home and studying his passion of woodworking. But when he visits the local bar with his brothers one evening, he’s immediately drawn to the smart-mouthed, badass, sexy bartender who sets his body on fire. Unfortunately, she doesn’t seem as intrigued by him, and his multiple advances are met with rejection. When he offers to restore the bar back to its original glory, he begins to work with her on a daily basis, and falls harder. His plan of seduction slowly weaves a web around them both, until they are caught up in the spell. But Dalton doesn’t know the secret that can either destroy them both...or finally mend two broken hearts.


Any Time, Any Place is available for purchase:



There's just something about artists that always makes things that much more complicated. Maybe because artists, in general, tend to have quite a few layers to their characters. Either way, Dalton, the youngest Pierce brother is just that. There's so much to him that we get to really explore in this second installment of the Billionaire Builders series. Even Raven, the local bar owner, cannot get her head wrapped around why she is so insanely attracted to this one guy that her history has dictated as an arch nemesis. Raven, herself, has a million layers to get to know, too. What is she hiding under that tough-barkeep persona? I felt that the premise of this story alone is interesting enough as it is--Dalton and Raven are so right for each other even though it all seems so wrong. 

Probst's writing style prevails in this book. She does not disappoint with her emotionally charged and intense characters. Her writing has always been able to get to me on an emotional level. There are a whole lot of heart wrenching moments. The chemistry between her characters is hard to find and I have no issues relating to them and feeling right alongside them. Can't wait for the next book!
