#CoverReveal ~ “Just Roommates” by Allie York, (425 Madison Avenue Series) Genre: Contemporary Romance, Roommates Romance, Release Date: August 31st 2020 ~ @AllieYorkWrites #ForeverWritePR


The second book in the third season of the beloved 425 Madison Ave is finally here! Check out the lovely cover for JUST ROOMMATES by Allie York, a must-read roommate romance!




I’m known around 425 Madison, and to my friends, as Crazy Sara. While they never use the nickname to my face, I know my reputation precedes me. That’s just fine with me, after all I’ve got everything I ever wanted. I have an apartment in the swankiest building in NYC, a different date every night, and the future is mine for the taking.

Okay so maybe only one thing is missing – the perfect roommate to keep me company.

Unfortunately, the roommate who wants me is not what I had in mind. And my best friend gave me one rule: Don’t sleep with her brother.


With an art degree in hand it only makes sense for me to move to NYC. Both of my sisters live here and my new niece. New York has an endless supply of muses for my art and models to entertain.

Things were just fine in my new life, until my sister gets tired of me crashing in her guest room and decides I’ll be the perfect roommate for her friend Crazy Sara. I’m on board with a change of scenery as long as the scenery is my sister’s gorgeous friend. But turns our Crazy Sara isn’t really as crazy as they all claim and she’s not really interested in me – or at least that’s what she claims.

That’s fine, two can play this game.

After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love!

I’ve heard
blood is thicker than water, but those people must not have ever been stabbed
in the back by their family.

At least water made rivers.

All blood did was stain.

My brother was a stain on my damn life.

No matter how hard I scrubbed, his betrayal was still there.

He set me up to take the fall on one of the biggest jobs we ever did together,
and I did five years behind bars for fraud and money laundering.

I’m out of prison now, and I’m ready to turn the river red.

No one messes with me and gets away with it. I’m going to take everything that
belongs to me.

Including her. His ex-wife that he kept under lock and key like an animal.

Last I heard, Gabriella Regio has the bite of a beast, and I can’t wait to set
her free.

I took a deep breath and clawed my fingers into the old worn wood of the
counter. My body shook with anger. I wanted to bust through the glass and hold
her, to tell her everything was going to be okay, but I couldn’t lie to her
anymore. I had no idea if things would ever be okay again.
If she went back to my brother, Gabriella would be nothing but a ghost to
me. I was haunted in many ways, and losing her would leave me in purgatory,
where the doomed, broken, and dangerous were meant to be.
“Goodbye, Sebastian,” she sobbed my name and hung up the phone with a
soft click as I stared at her.

#CoverReveal ~ “Show Stopper” Series: Chicago First Responders #1, by Author: BJ Harvey, Genre: Feel Good Rom/Com; Firefighter Romance, Release Date: August 31, 2020! ~ @bjharveyauthor @EJBookPromos

Title: Show Stopper
Series: Chicago First Responders #1
Author: BJ Harvey
Genre: Feel Good Rom/Com; Firefighter Romance
Release Date: August 31, 2020
The first time they meet it’s by chance. The second is surely a coincidence. The third…it’s either destiny or he’s a stalker.
Renee Hamilton has a thing against men in uniform. In her experience, they play hard, lie harder. Marco Rossi has a thing for feisty brunette women with a backbone and a smart mouth, especially one in particular who’s playing hard to get.
She’s fiercely independent and wants better for herself.
He loves helping people so much it’s literally his job.
Worst case scenario, they crash and burn.
Lucky for Renee, Marco has a hose, he knows how to use it, and he happens to love putting out all kinds of fires; real or otherwise.
USA Today Bestselling Author BJ Harvey brings you Showstopper – Book 1 in a new spin-off to the Cook Brothers rom com series, featuring Chicago first responders fighting the good fight and finding love at the same time. Set in the same world as the Bliss, Game, and Cook Brothers series before it, this title can be read as a complete standalone.

“Do you come here often?” I say without thinking. Oh shit, talking about cliché. I open my mouth to take it back, but she beats me to it.


Her narrowed eyes snap to mine. “Seriously?” 


I try to muster up some charm in the beautiful face of animosity. “What I mean is, I haven’t seen you here before.” That earns a new quirked brow. She’s totally not going to make this easy for me. She’s a challenge, and I’m hooked on figuring her out. 


She quirks a brow. “Do you come to ladies’ night and try to use your big muscles and suave moves often? Or maybe you just pull out the ‘I’m a firefighter; I’ve got a big hose and I know how to use it’ line and wait for women to swoon and fall at your feet?”


My lips curve into an amused smirk. “Is it working? Because my next go-to is to say I can take them to the firehouse and show them my big truck, and if they’re really good, I’ll let them slide down my long fireman’s pole.”


Her eyes widen, and I don’t miss the slight quirk of her lips. The fact I’m going toe-to-toe with her seems to have surprised her. It also makes me want to do it again and again. 


“Just so you know, I came tonight with my crew because we had a hard night last night. It just coincided with ladies’ night and some of them were coming anyway. I know the owner, so yes, I’ve been here a few times before, but I’ve never seen the ice queen in the corner shooting daggers at me all because she thinks I’m a player without any good reason,” I reply. 


I’m sorry, but your friend is currently pawing all over my sister. I’m not sure the good-guy, knight-in-shining-armor routine you’ve got going on is gonna fly if that”—she points over to where Scotty is indeed acting like an octopus with Hayley—“is the kind of guy representing your crew.”


“Scotty is one of a kind. He’s genuinely harmless, but he is good people.”


“And what about you?” she asks curiously, her hazel eyes pinning me in place. God, that look on her face is doing bad, bad, good things me. Something about her sass and attitude is hitting all the right buttons. 


“What about me?”


“Are you a player?”


“I don’t have time for games.”


“Pity,” she says dismissively.


I frown, completely confused. “Why?”


“Because then I’d have a reason to throw a drink in someone’s face.”

I know what you’re thinking and all I can say is…its true. I was stupid and fell in love with a woman who never knew I existed. We shared one night and the next day I screwed up saying the wrong thing and it didn’t help matters when I went to try and fix it only to find her in the arms of another man.

Damn. This hurts even more than I ever thought it could.

Everyone thinks I’m laid back and easy going, but then there are a few who see me as no more than an asshole and I would tend to agree with them. But when you watch the one woman you truly want walk away from you and back to your best friend.

It hurts.

But what makes it worse is, she’s not just some random woman, she’s my best friends girl.

I guess for you to understand you need to hear my side of the story from the beginning.

So how do those stories usually start off again? Oh yeah…Once upon a time…

If I knew then what I know now… so much could have been avoided. So many feelings and people’s lives wouldn’t have turned out the way they did. They tell you when you’re a kid that every action has a consequence but you just laugh it off. Or you do it anyways and it ends up the way you wanted or better. But what about the slight chance when you do it and it ends horribly wrong but it’s too late to change it. You’re left standing in the middle of a mess and you’re left with the consequences of your actions.

She ruined everything perfect in my life. It’s all her fault in the end. But he has to take the blame also. After all he’s the one who left me in the end and went to her. And for what? This story…the story of my life is so messed up that I don’t think I’ll ever find true happiness again. Because you see that woman she’s going to make you feel for her, make you compassionate toward her side of things. But in the end so will I. Every action has a consequence in the end. And even though his one decision started the whole domino effect it ended up being my choice to lie and run.

Natasha and JoAnna…
So in the end. Who’s truly at fault?


Or me?

Natasha and JoAnna…
Or him?

I couldn’t walk away.
It’s not who I am.
The moment I saw Rayne broken and bloodied, I knew I wasn’t leaving without her.
As the president of the Houston Defiance MC, my job is to protect. And there’s no taming the rage building inside my body, screaming at me to shield her from the husband who’s beating her day in and day out.
Taking her was never in my plans, but plans change.
I don’t care if she’s married.
Or that her husband’s a cop.
Our connection is explosive, it’s dangerous, it’s intoxicating.
And I’m fast being swept up in her storm.
It’s something I can’t ignore.
I thought the enemy was clear, and I was ready to fight.
But maybe there’s a threat we didn’t see coming?
Maybe there’s someone closer to us than we ever could have imagined.
Someone who could be the destruction of us both.

I have no idea what Maxence was doing in Monaco that night. Yeah, he loves the
Monte Carlo casino—the stage of British spy movies, billionaires, Russian
mafia, and roulette.

But too many people in Monaco think he might be a danger to them.

He never should have been there.

But he was.

They tell me Maxence was here in the casino, and then a few minutes later, he
