Release Blitz: “A Very Bossy Christmas” By Author Kayley Loring, Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy, Release Date: October 26, 2020 is #AvailableNow ~ #KayleyLoringAuthor. @GiveMeBooksPR

Title: A Very Bossy Christmas
Author: Kayley Loring
Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 26, 2020

BLURB
What’s the actual last thing you’d ever want your executive assistant to see you doing the morning after you had hot, drunk, angry sex with her in a terrible hotel room? Dancing around your terrible hotel room to “Come and Get Your Love” like Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy—naked? Yeah. Me too. 

And yet, here we are. 
This isn’t even the most unprofessional thing that’s happened between us in the past couple of weeks. 
The first was when I agreed to let her have Christmas Day off, but only if she goes with me to three family gatherings as my fake girlfriend. 
The second was when she caught me belting out a Christmas song on stage in the awful hotel bar. 
The third was the hot, drunk, angry sex that followed, but I do not regret it. 
And she hasn’t even found out the real reason I need her by my side this holiday season. 
I need to pull it together before I do the dumbest, most unprofessional thing of all—fall head over heels in love with the only assistant who’s lasted more than a month at the job and claims to hate me and my moods more than she hates eggnog. 

And I’ve seen how much she hates eggnog.

Rub one out with this genie, and you’re guaranteed to get more than three wishes. 
As a workaholic writer, I’m used to chasing down the latest story. As a single lady, I’m also used to pursuing that perfect O, all by my lonesome.
But this time, the story is a ghost hunt … literally.
My hometown of Morningwood has been experiencing supernatural activity lately, and I’m headed home to investigate the ridiculous rumors.
I don’t believe in ghosts. At least, I didn’t until a sexy, comedic genie named Dylan popped out of a big blue dildo and right into my bed. I’m certain this is a postorgasmic haze, or maybe I’m dreaming. But this ghostly guy can ride my magic carpet anytime.
Dylan has lost his ability to grant wishes, thanks to a spell from my witchy great-aunt Karen, but he’s never lost his magic touch.
Talk about horny and hexed!
The only way to break his curse is to find the matching toy to his “lamp,” hidden in a town I’m now convinced might be haunted.
From boogeymen to butt plugs, our hilarious adventure is nothing short of epic!

Gimme an F … 

 

F! 
Gimme a U … 
U! 
What’s that spell? 
FU! 
Forks University Fashion Academy was my dream school. And my spoiled little heart was used to getting what I wanted … until now. 
Being rescued by the annoyingly gorgeous Dominick Moretti, my sworn enemy per our family’s endless feud, turned my designer life into a nightmare. 
I had been minding my own business—pulling a teeny-tiny BAD prank on behalf of my sorority, Beta Alpha Delta—when the fraternity, Delta Iota Kappa caught me. Lucky for me, the DIK who had come to my rescue was none other than Dominick. 
 
We should hate each other. I mean, his family had basically stolen my dad’s business plan, making them rich and creating a grudge deeper than any university rival. But try telling that to my lady bits. 
 
Suddenly, everything seemed so last season compared to being with him. 
 
I’d had no idea fraternizing with the enemy would prove to be more dangerous than running in six-inch stilettos. 
Walking away from our families was the only way to be together … but was I ready to trade my comfortable life of luxury for a chance at love?

Subscriber Wars

By
Kristy Marie

Genres: #ContemporaryRomance #NewAdultRomance #RomanticComedy

My Rating: 5

Cover: 5

POV: First-person dual perspectives

Publication: September 30th 2020

Read: September 27th 2020. *Review copy provided by Wordsmith Publicity

Purchase: Check Amazon on Release day! September 30th 2020!

Synopsis:

I can explain.
Kind of.
I realize the wig and makeup don’t help my case, but that’s not the point.
The point is, Sebastian came at me first.
He’s the one who started this war, but I’m the one who finished it.
I’m not even sorry about it.
Fine. Maybe I am. A little.
That’s the only explanation as to why I just agreed to play his fake girlfriend so he—we—can win a million dollars on the hottest reality show contest ever filmed on campus.
Don’t get it wrong though, Sebastian and I may look like we love each other, but everyone knows reality TV is nothing but scripted lies and staged kisses.

My Review: 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Subscriber Wars by Kristy Marie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Wow! This is another original story from this author. Her talent for storytelling is incredible. You can’t help but to fall helplessly in love with her characters.
If you’re a little bored with the same old romance tropes and genres then Kristy Marie is an author you will want to read, if you haven’t already. Her writing style is crafty, witty, engaging and down-right exceptional. I am 100% in love with her books. Each book is better than the one before. Each book has depth, complexity and originality. ALL her characters are amazing and you will love them all.

So, Subscriber Wars is a standalone and part of a series. They are next generation to her Commander in Briefs series. You don’t have to read those books prior but I promise you will have an even better reading experience if you do. Subscriber Wars is Valentina and Sebastian’s story. This book has a myriad of emotions throughout. Angst being first and foremost. Wit, snark, humor, and sexiness is in abundance as well. This book is thorough and entertaining and for me, it will be hard to knock it off the pedestal I have placed it on.

Unfortunately, I cannot tell you anything about the book other than it’s fantastic. The story/drama unfolds with each chapter and culminates with a fantastic and unpredictable ending. Those two epilogues? Priceless!

Vee and Sebastian have incredible chemistry. One of my favorite aspects of this book is having both H/h perspectives. So happy I could be inside both their heads. Vee is a unique heroine; I adored her personality and the way she owned up to her mistakes. Sebastian was another amazing character. His persona is willful, arrogant, and sexiness oozes from him. And yet he is not perfect. Sebastian also doesn’t run from his mistakes. But there are things he does want to run away from. That aspect gives the book depth. I wondered throughout, what his decision would be in the end.

I absolutely recommend this book to everyone who loves romance with a side of snark and a whole lot of humor. Subscriber Wars is a perfectly balanced novel.

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

She might be wishing for the wrong kind of luck.

Any Luck At All, an all-new witty, must-read romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank and A.R. Casella is available now!

Georgie Buchanan doesn’t know the first thing about running a brewery—she doesn’t even like beer—so she’s thrown when her grandfather leaves his business to her and her three siblings. Selling Buchanan Brewery would be the prudent approach, and while Georgie is, first and foremost, a businesswoman, keeping it might be her best chance of connecting with her half-brother, Jack. But she quickly learns that what she thought was a fixer-upper is a money pit, the employees are all eccentric to the extreme, and her inheritance comes with a shocking catch. Her one hope for success lies with River Reeves, the handsome brewmaster who learned at her grandfather’s feet…if she can avoid falling for him.

After learning his best friend and boss is selling the brewery they built together to a soulless corporation, River quits on the spot, only for Georgie Buchanan to offer him a job the very same night. Helping her turn Buchanan Brewery around is his dream job, the perfect homage to the man who taught him everything and helped give him roots. There’s one problem: his new boss is his dream woman, and she’s not the type to mix business and pleasure. Balancing a new job, a new puppy, and a growing infatuation with his boss, River knows something has to give.

If Georgie has any luck at all, she’ll be able to turn Buchanan Brewery around without losing her mind or her heart. But as River helps her weather everything from her uncle’s possessed cat to a séance, she realizes she might be wishing for the wrong kind of luck.

And keep their hands off each other at the same time?

My Review:  3.5 Stars

Truth, Lies, and Second DatesTruth, Lies, and Second Dates by MaryJanice Davidson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars…
I was actually torn between 3 & 3.5 stars for this rating. I ended up generously awarding the latter. Truth, Lies and Second Dates had the potential to be a five star read for me. Unfortunately, I didn’t love it, didn’t connect nor did I feel the writing was smooth. The pace was slow in my opinion. At least the first half of the book felt that way. This book is 320 pages but it felt like much more.

From the synopsis, I inferred the story to be different from what it was. The premise was explained well enough but the execution didn’t work for me. To be honest, I expected a darker tone. Ava, one of the main characters, was too sarcastic for me to take seriously; and her humor made me cringe during certain conversations. There is a time and a place for everything. This author didn’t feel that way. As a result, I wasn’t laughing all the time. The dialogue between characters was okay, but at times I had to re-read paragraphs because I could not follow along. Several times, I wondered if I missed some vital information because too many aspects didn’t make sense. Another aspect that interrupted my reading flow was the inserts of definitions at the end of each chapter and way too many parenthesis throughout the text. Also, the sudden switches in POV were another issue I had with flow. This book was very busy.

At some point after 30%, I ignored the monotony and decided if I wanted to like this book at all, I would view this story as a murder mystery and not a romantic comedy, as well as ignore the numerous onslaught of tropes. While the romance aspect ended up being cute, I didn’t feel this book was romance. That’s ok, though because I knew going in that the author was integrating many tropes; unfortunately that just didn’t work for me. But thankfully, one stood out so I focused on that. The “who done it” aspect. And to my delight and surprise, I didn’t see the end coming. Nor was I able to guess the murderer until that moment of resolution. I warn you now, there is no foreshadowing in this book. Situations just spontaneously arise. That said, regarding the climax, or my view on it, it was rushed. I had to re-read part of that final scene a few times.

To sum this review up, I didn’t hate the book. While there were parts of the writing I didn’t connect with, there were a few that I delighted in. This author took the dark undertone from the main focus and wrote characters with intellect, witticism, flaws, outrageousness and created an original story. Truth, Lies, and Second Dates, was most definitely something I have never read before. Nor have I read this author before. You cannot take this book seriously.

I want to close this review with one thought. If you are researching this book, deciding if you will read it, don’t look too deeply into the reviews. There are many mixed feelings about this book. Some loved it, some hated it and like me, some thought is was okay. We all have different preferences when we chose a book and while this book didn’t resonate with me in a fully posiitve light, you may love it.

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