Blog Tour & Review ~ Reservations by Kindle Alexander

Title: Reservations
Author: Kindle Alexander
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: October 30, 2017



Amazon Review - ““Reservations” by Kindle Alexander is a rare gem in the world of M/M Romance, because it is genuinely compelling story telling!”

Amazon Review - “Thane & Levi stole my heart!!”

Amazon Review - “Thane and Levi!! Simply amazing”
Amazon Review - “A beautifully written love story that is guaranteed to melt you heart!”
Wildly successful entrepreneur, Thane Walker is stubbornly set in his ways. Adamantly resistant to the shackles of commitment, he’s seen enough unhappy endings to learn the best way to play is by keeping his men on the payroll. 
Levi Silva’s dream of graduating from one of the country’s top medical schools is in his grasp, until news from home changes everything. Now, he’s raising his two teenage brothers and trying to keep everyone’s head above water, emotionally and financially. 
When Levi’s new job puts him in Thane’s path, their chemistry explodes, but their fear of being involved in relationships keeps them apart. Unfortunately, despite the intense desire drawing them together, neither man can move forward until they get past their own…Reservations.





The writing duo of Kindle Alexander is my go to author for the M/M genre. Once again they wrote an intriguing story to pull you in and keep you turning those pages. It was a lighter, fluffy romantic story with little angst and a lot of heat. 

I loved the connection between Thane and Levi as well as the buildup. We have your usual rich business man who wants to control everything and the struggling man trying to make ends meet. I absolutely loved that Levi never backed down from what he believed. He always strived to do what was best never taking what was right in front of him.

With each page you saw a deeper connection between Thane and Levi. It was a story of connection and love. It was a story of finding your special someone and trusting your heart. It was heartwarming and touching.

I’m not gonna lie this wasn’t my favorite book from the duo but I liked it none the less and I would totally recommend reading it. I am so looking forward to Juilian’s book. He deserves a HEA.



Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It's always a surprise to see what's coming next!
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.

New Review ~ Can't Let Go by Gena Showalter

      


   

CAN’T LET GO Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter is back with a sizzling Original Heartbreakers tale about an icy war vet and the only woman capable of melting him…

With trust issues a mile long, Ryanne Wade has sworn off men.  Then Jude Laurent walks into her bar and all bets are off.  The former Army Ranger has suffered unimaginably, first being maimed in battle then losing his wife and daughters to a drunk driver. Making the brooding widower smile is priority one. Resisting him? Impossible.

To Jude, Ryanne is off limits. And yet the beautiful bartender who serves alcohol to potential motorists tempts him like no other. When a rival bar threatens her livelihood, and her life, he can’t turn away.  She triggers something in him he thought long buried, and he’s determined to protect her, whatever the cost.

As their already scorching attraction continues to heat, the damaged soldier knows he must let go of his past to hold on to his future...or risk losing the second chance he desperately needs.

This is only the second book I’ve read in the series but WOW. I couldn’t put this down. Angst, suspense, romance and love all wrapped up in this beautiful story. It was a really great read. It had everything you look for in a great romance novel. I loved the push and pull and slow build up. The characters had depth and real emotions you could relate to. 

This quote is my favorite of the book and it about sums up Jude & Ryanne.

“Let’s face, it love, you were meant to be mine. How else could two people less likely to fall for each other- a man who wished he were dead and a woman full of life-have come together?”

Can you just swoon when he calls her love? 

It’s an emotion ride that you’ll gladly take. It’ll pull on the heartstrings, make you swoon and make you hot all in a matter of minutes. You can't let this story go.

Sometimes love needs a second chance…

I never looked back after skipping out on my own wedding, even if it did leave me estranged from most of my family. Eight years later, I have the life I’ve always wanted. As an advertising account executive, my world is damn near perfect.

Until I come face-to-face with my past. With the man I once loved. The man who holds my future in his hands. The man who’s hell-bent on getting even with me for leaving him at the altar.

Even with all the unfinished business between us, I still love Knox Montgomery. The only problem?

He loves me…KNOT.

“Sometimes love just need a second chance, when it wasn’t quite ready the first time around.”

I’m a sucker for second chance romances. They get you right in the heart making you feel all the feels. I absolutely loved this book. I was stuck to my kindle, reading it in one day. It pulled on the heartstrings and gave me all those giddy romance feelings I love when reading a great romance.

I loved how RC weaved the past with present giving us glimpses of how Knox and EJ fell in and out and in love. She created this heartwarming story of forever kind of love. There was some angst and heartache but there was redemption and love.


My first book from this author and I was blown away. I’m wondering why I never read any of her books and adding them to my TBR list. I look forward to Becket’s story.

Wells Lemiere knew the moment he saw Matty Haverbrooke, he had to have him. Matty was quiet, he was talented, he was beautiful, and Wells couldn’t stay away.

He had no intention of getting involved in a relationship with Wells. But the heart he’d given up for dead had other ideas. Their affair was intense and overwhelming, but when Matty couldn’t bring himself to come out and admit he wanted a public future with the man he loved, Wells had no choice but to honor his vow to live openly…and leave Matty behind. But then he learns Wells is marrying another, and Matty knows he can't let that happen. Can he throw down his gloves and embrace his future with both hands? Or will he pull the door to his closet shut once more?

RELEASE BOOST - Crank by Adriana Locke




Title: Crank
Series: The Gibson Boys #1
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 10, 2017



Blurb

This is one mistake Sienna Landry can’t buy her way out of.

As Walker Gibson looks at her, then at the damage to his precious truck (that she may or may not have accidentally inflicted), she knows she’s in trouble. It’s not the busted headlight and dented grill that’s sunk her though. It’s the downright sinful man in front of her that’s the problem.

The small town mechanic is broody. Rough. Smells like engine grease and gasoline and Sienna isn’t sure why that’s so sexy, but it is. It so is. She’s ready to peel off her panties at the drop of his wrench.

He wants her too. She can feel it when he brushes against her. Experience it as he presses her against the wall of the shop. It’s thinly veiled in his deep, brown eyes when he looks at her like she’s everything he’s ever wanted. So why won’t he give in?

The damage to Walker’s truck is the first of many mistakes between the two of them, ending with truths that rock Sienna’s world. Nothing can fix her broken heart except the love of a man that won’t, maybe even can’t, love her back.

Crank is a standalone romance in a new small town, blue-collar series from USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke. Join readers everywhere as they fall in love with the delicious Gibson Boys.
