#CoverReveal ~ “Love on the Rocks” By Author Kim Bailey, #HolidaySpringsResortSeries Book #3 #ContemporaryRomance Release Date: November 6th 2020 ~ @Kimberley_Bee #ForeverWritePR

We are so excited to share the cover for the upcoming release, Love on the Rocks by Kim Bailey. Check out the sexy cover for Love on the Rocks, a must-read workplace romance from the upcoming Holiday Springs Resort series!

Melina Morales is a good girl.

A hardworking, ambitious, follows-all-the-rules girl. Maybe that’s why her coworkers call her the ice queen. She might care if it weren’t for the looming pile of debt and her family’s dependence on her. But with her dream job on the line, she’s determined to succeed, no matter the sacrifice.

There’s just one tiny, six-foot-something problem. . .

Zane Wilder is a bad boy.

The Holiday Springs bartender is the guy everyone turns to for a good time—especially the women. Except lately he’s been unsatisfied. Maybe it’s got something to do with the drunken kiss he shared with Melina, but since he’s not interested in commitment, he figures there’ll never be a chance to find out.

When Melina agrees to one date in return for a favor, they both quickly realize there’s something between them. But it’s going to take Zane a lot more than his fun-loving ways and easy charm to convince the good girl to give him a serious shot.

This time, he’ll have to risk his heart.

Escape to the romantic paradise of Holiday Springs and warm up with your next happily ever after.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Bully King by Andi Jaxon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


First, I’ll start off by saying that one of the heroes in this book was an awful person. The author justified why he acted like the huge jerk he was but not the way he treated Jonah. I despise bullies and despite that fact, I wanted to read this book anyway. I am a fan of this author and the way she pulls my emotions forward. She isn’t afraid to cross boundaries and put her characters in horrific circumstances then give them the happily-ever-after they deserve. Unfortunately, there was just no full redemption for me regarding Roman. While he turned things around late in the book, I couldn’t let go of the cruel things he did, or let happen to Jonah. And for that reason, I could not award this book five stars. This deduction of one star is based on how I felt during and when the book was finished. It was NOT based on the author’s writing talent. As I said, Andi Jaxon is an author that will rip my heart out and put it back together. She has the ability to make me so angry, so frustrated and so incredibly sad, as well as some happy moments. All the feels!

Jonah comes from an incredibly religious family. They just moved to town as Jonah’s father is the new pastor. There is a lot of religious references in this book. Truthfully, that didn’t bother me. We have many religious traditions in our family. That said, while people have their own opinions on the subject in this book, never is it okay, in my eyes or heart, to condemn a person for who they are. As long as they aren’t hurting people, I am accepting and welcoming. It broke my heart that Jonah was terrified to be himself. I’m not going to get into the story so you can form your own opinions. I will say that I was happier in the last third of the book and more so during the last chapters. This book is so emotional, I had to put it down for hours at a time before I could continue.

Warning…..there are triggers in this book. Talk of suicide. Tremendously cruel bullying. Violence.
Domestic abuse. The author states all intimacy was consensual however there was a time or two where I felt the lines were blurred. But that is just my take on it. Because we all have different experiences in our lives, I believe readers will have different opinions of this book. As I mentioned earlier in my review, my dislikes for the book were because of my own feelings and not the author’s writing. I’ll say this though, if you’re looking for an emotional journey, I recommend this book; it will gut you.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis

It’s the opportunity she’s dreamed of…

After spending two years focused on her career, Rowan West is finally up for an advertising manager promotion. Holiday parties and gift-buying are on hold as Rowan travels to New Hampshire to create a marketing campaign that can revive a struggling, Christmas-themed resort and adventure park. Rowan’s brains and ambition make her shine, and she won’t allow anything to get in her way—especially not her far-too-handsome competitor with a sense of humor and high-up connections.

He needs to prove himself…

Jeremy Kincannon is competitive enough to fight tooth and nail for a promotion he doesn’t even want. Because his stepfather owns the company, no one believes he earned his spot despite having climbed up from the bottom like everyone else. He’s intrigued by his button-upped, business-only colleague who’s distractingly pretty. So he lays down a challenge—he’ll call a truce to their verbal sparring if she tries to have fun.

As their rivalry wanes and attraction grows, will Jeremy and Rowan embrace the magic of Christmas? 

My 📝Reviews📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

The Magic of Christmas by Christi Barth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


4 Stars to The Magic of Christmas by Christi Barth.
I loved the premise of this book. The fact that the majority of the story takes place at a Christmas themed resort and amusement park is just icing on the cake. I wish there was such a place near where I live. Upstate and several hours of driving there was a Christmas themed amusement park. But because it was so far away and didn’t have striking reviews, we never visited. The author gave me such excitement as she described her little town in New Hampshire with the Christmas resort. I felt the fun and excitement as if I was there. There were so many fun things to do that I was swept away by not only the storyline, but Christmas as well.

Rowan and Jeremy are rivals at the same marketing firm. Rowan was vying for a promotion and she won’t let anything get in her way of receiving it. Especially Jeremy who is up for the same promotion. When they both are named finalists, Rowan isn’t happy. While in her own mind, she is better than Jeremy, he has a better chance. Jeremy is the bosses stepson. Rowan, as with many of the staff at the firm, believe Jeremy got his position due to nepotism. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Both Jeremy and Rowan are being sent to New Hampshire to create a campaign to save the theme park, which hasn’t been doing well. They both must come up with their own campaign and present it to the board. There can only be one winner.

I’m not going to lie, I disliked Rowan and her condescending attitude from the moment I read the first page. She was so full of herself. Unfortunately, it took me a good portion of the book to understand her better. Jeremy, however, I liked from the beginning. He was a gentleman. He made me laugh and he was considerate of Rowan from the beginning, even when I didn’t believe she deserved his friendship.

As the story goes on, their friendship grows into romance. But before they even have a chance to admit their feelings for each other, something happens that sends Rowan back to Chicago earlier than planned. And alone.

This is a sweet, fun, and sometimes whimsical story and I recommend it to anyone who loves romance with a Christmas theme. It was a pleasure to read.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

BLURB
Tessa 

I’m 21. One-night stands are supposed to be normal at this age right? Go to a bar, pick a hot guy, have a little fun and then you run. Or at least that’s what I thought, until my first and only one-night stand ended up being the night I got knocked up by a stranger I had never laid eyes on before. Sure, he was the perfect guy for the job. He was sexy in the way that attracted every female within 100 yards of him. His voice was smooth, and he knew exactly what to say to get into my panties, clearly. Eye roll. 
I wasn’t on birth control. Now I’ve peed on two sticks and they both say the same thing. Those two little lines have changed my future forever. You want to know what the worst part is? I have no idea what the name of the father is. 
Kyle 
I’m a bachelor. I never sleep with the same woman twice, I like variety. But when she walks into the bar, she takes my attention immediately. When she agrees to leave with me, I’ve hit the jackpot. Then I run into her in my sister’s office, the last place I expected to see her. I never thought I’d see her again. 
Except this time, she has something to tell me. Something that will change my world forever. Our one night together, turned out to be so much more.

Synopsis:

Jason Regan is a man on the go. Excluding his high school years in Holly, Idaho, he’s never settled in one place. Building his engineering company requires a lot of travel, so when he returns to Holly to visit his aunt and pay a decade-old parking ticket, he’s not planning to stay for Christmas. The judge’s ruling changes that—he’s assigned community service at an animal shelter requiring his skills.

Former lawyer Tess Evans moved home to pursue her true calling—managing the Forever Home Animal Shelter. The shelter is chronically underfunded and understaffed. So, to raise money and awareness, she organizes a ‘Home for the Holidays’ adoption event at Holly’s Christmas festival. Getting a skilled volunteer at such a critical time is a gift and Tess takes full advantage. Their to-do list is long, and not falling in love is number one.

As their attraction grows, they keep forgetting Jason’s stay in Holly is temporary. Can Tess, a lonely terrier named Neville and some Christmas magic change his mind? 

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

A Home for the Holidays by Jeannie Watt

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A Home for the Holidays by Jeannie Watt was a fun and enjoyable Christmas related romance. While most of the book was predictable, I found myself enjoying it as if I hadn’t ever read anything similar. The characters especially, were endearing and complex at the same time. I knew there would be a happy ending however, I wasn’t sure how Jason and Tess would get there. So, there was the intrigue in that aspect. I have read this author many times previously and always enjoy her stories, characters and premises. I’m probably in the minority, but I don’t like a lot of angst in my romances unless I’m reading a specific genre where I know it will be prominent. That said, this book has a bit, but not too much.

As the Christmas aspect of this book goes, I loved it. I love the holiday season and everything that goes with it. For me, Christmas romances are a part of my holiday traditions and I start reading them as early as September. Christmas comes and goes to quickly as far as I’m concerned.

Tess runs the local animal shelter. While she does have volunteers, she could always use more help. There is always some task needing to be done. But her biggest worry is whether or not she will receive the grant she applied for. The town council will only award her the money IF she finds homes for all the remaining animals at the shelter by Christmas Eve.

Jason has come back to Holly to visit his aunt and pay a parking ticket fine. A decade old fine. Instead of a monetary penalty, the judge requires Jason to spend 100 hours helping at the animal shelter. While Jason pays his dues, he finds himself enjoying the time spent with furry friends. One furry friend, in particular. In addition, Jason is growing feelings for Tess. But that is not a good idea since he is planning to go back to California in a couple of weeks.

I enjoyed watching Tess and Jason become more than friends. Jason was an amazing character; a gentleman and a thoughtful and considerate man. Tess was a great match for him in every way. This was such a sweet story and I recommend it for anyone looking for a sweet, holiday romance.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

I feel physically sick after hearing what Reli has been through. When she opened the door I bit back a curse as I took in her face. The split lip, the bloodshot eyes, not to mention the bruises that shine brightly on her face. She took a beating last night or this morning. A severe one by the looks of things. I need to get her to a doctor. Preferably a hospital but I’m not sure she’ll go for that.

By the looks of it, it looks like she has taken years of abuse both physically and mentally. What she’s endured makes me want to track Talia Maine down and kill the bitch. Talia and her minions have turned a girl that was broken hearted from losing her father into their fucking slave. They’ve made her life a living hell and I’m going to do everything in my power to ensure that they get the same in return. I’m going to fucking ruin them.

“Is this happening every day?” I’m not sure how I’ve managed to keep my voice calm and even but I’m fucking glad. The last thing Reli needs is my anger, it’s not directed at her, but she’s been mistreated so badly that she’d probably think it was.

She wrings her hands together and shrugs. Something passes through her eyes and I realize that she’s not told me everything. I can’t push her, if I do she could close up, or run and she’s too frail to go anywhere.

“Reli, talk to me. I want to help.” I plead with her, I’m not used to feeling helpless and right now, there’s nothing that I can do. I want to pull her into my arms and hold her tight, but she’s fucking seventeen.

The sheer sadness in her eyes makes my gut clench. “You can’t. No one can.” She shifts in her seat a strangled cry springs from her lips as tears form in her eyes.

Fuck, “Reli, you need to see the doctor. Will you let me bring you to the hospital?”

She nods, her entire body shaking as the tears fall down her face.

Thank Christ.

I quickly push the button for the intercom and speak to my driver. “Lance, take us to the hospital.”

“Yes boss.” He replies instantly.

He’ll take us to a hospital that I trust. One that we use for my men if we’re injured. Where I know they’ll keep this shit quiet.

Reli leans back against the seat and closes her eyes, her face tense and full of pain. I hate seeing her like this. I need to comfort her. I unsnap her seat belt buckle and her eyes pop open, the fear in them has me fighting back a curse.

“Let me help you.” I murmur and she just stares at me as I reach for her. I pull her into my lap and she shuts down even more. “Reli, I’m not going to hurt you.” But my words fall on deaf ears, she doesn’t know that, she doesn’t really know me.

I hold her close, needing to feel her in my arms. “Where are you sore the most?” I ask her, she’s barely able to breathe without wincing.

“My back.” She gasps as Lance takes a sharp corner and she’s jolted in my arms.

I ask her if it’s okay to have a look. I need to see what’s wrong with her, she nods turning her head away from me. I lift up her top and my jaw clenches at what I see. Black bruises run from the top of her neck to the bottom of her spine.

Oh God, what on earth has this woman been doing to her?

“Reli, why didn’t you tell me about your back? What did she do to you?”

Looking back at me, she licks her lips, her eyes wide with fear. “I don’t know,” she whispers and I frown, how can she not know? “Yesterday…” she begins softly and my body tenses. “She hit me…”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I’m Brooke, I’m a Londoner born and raised. I live with my fiancee and our daughter.
 
I’m a foul mouthed, dirty minded weirdo.
 
I’m an introvert who would rather spend the night in front of the fire reading than go out.
