A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire: A Blood and Ash Novel by Jennifer L. Armentrout(Review Post)

Published August 12, 2020 by bookbesties

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a new novel in her Blood and Ash series…

Is Love Stronger Than Vengeance?

A Betrayal…

Everything Poppy has ever believed in is a lie, including the man she was falling in love with. Thrust among those who see her as a symbol of a monstrous kingdom, she barely knows who she is without the veil of the Maiden. But what she does know is that nothing is as dangerous to her as him. The Dark One. The Prince of Atlantia. He wants her to fight him, and that’s one order she’s more than happy to obey. He may have taken her, but he will never have her.

A Choice….

Casteel Da’Neer is known by many names and many faces. His lies are as seductive as his touch. His truths as sensual as his bite. Poppy knows better than to trust him. He needs her alive, healthy, and whole to achieve his goals. But he’s the only way for her to get what she wants—to find her brother Ian and see for herself if he has become a soulless Ascended. Working with Casteel instead of against him presents its own risks. He still tempts her with every breath, offering up all she’s ever wanted. Casteel has plans for her. Ones that could expose her to unimaginable pleasure and unfathomable pain. Plans that will force her to look beyond everything she thought she knew about herself—about him. Plans that could bind their lives together in unexpected ways that neither kingdom is prepared for. And she’s far too reckless, too hungry, to resist the temptation.

A Secret…

But unrest has grown in Atlantia as they await the return of their Prince. Whispers of war have become stronger, and Poppy is at the very heart of it all. The King wants to use her to send a message. The Descenters want her dead. The wolven are growing more unpredictable. And as her abilities to feel pain and emotion begin to grow and strengthen, the Atlantians start to fear her. Dark secrets are at play, ones steeped in the blood-drenched sins of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth hidden. But when the earth begins to shake, and the skies start to bleed, it may already be too late.

In this highly anticipated sequel to Jennifer Armentrout’s successful fantasy series, From Blood and Ash, A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire picks up right where it left off. 

This is probably going to be one of those reviews where I can’t say too much so as not to spoil anything but also where I want to just SCREAM how excellent this book was. 

We find Poppy left dealing with a wide range of emotions left from a betrayal that cut her deep. Not really a reader of fantasy(I think I read, maybe three before this) This sequel had it all. Action, suspense, drama and romance. It had all the romance. 

“There is no side of you that is not as beautiful as the other half. Not a single inch isn’t stunning.”

I don’t usually watch much fantasy shows, I mean, I’ve never seen one episode of GOT and I’m okay with that, but if it’s anything like AKoF&F then sign me up! The action was off the charts, suspenseful and entertaining to where it was playing out in my head like a movie scene. 

What I loved most about this sequel is the journey that BOTH Hawke and Poppy take, individually and together as they both work toward a common goal. 

I didn’t think that Jen could outdo From Blood and Ash as being my top read of 2020, but she did! I immediately started rereading AKoF&F(even though I have about 4 more reviews to read and do) and it is easily, EASILY my top read of 2020!

In this first ever Adult Contemporary romance from Bestselling author, Wendy Higgins brings us a funny, romantic, coming of age book.

 When you mix a young, impressionable adult with being a flight attendant, having crazy roommates and a dating app, you get a perfect mix for a great setting to an amazing story. 

Harlow Robinson is fresh out of college and on the heels of all her other friends seemingly getting their life together she decides to chuck it all, including her fiance/high-school sweetheart who she didn’t really love, and become a flight attendant.  

Harlow, who believes in all things love is going along and enjoying her job and her seven, yes seven, roommates when they decided to sign her up for a dating app. Add in her male best friend, a handsome soldier she connects with on a flight and the ups’ and downs of online dating, what could go wrong right?

This story was so real in the pitfalls of online dating. I am here to say that Harlow’s experience was very, very accurate which made her that much more relatable to me. I also related to her as she is sweet and wants to see the good in everyone even when they are not deserving of that. The hope/excitement/heartbreak journey that Harlow takes, I FELT on a personal level. When the author can take you and your emotions along for the same ride as the character is huge for me.  When they laughed, I laughed out loud and when Harlow cried, I cried hard. That, I feel, Is the sign of a good book.

I am excited to see more of the Omega Skies flight attendants journey’s into love!

My Bestie’s Ex by Piper Rayne(Cover Reveal)

Published December 4, 2019 by bookbesties

We are thrilled to bring you the cover for MY BESTIE’S EX by Piper Rayne book 1 in a brand new series coming February 18th!

 

 

 

I can’t borrow him.

 

He’s not a sweater or a skirt.

 

He’s not even her favorite dress—the lucky one she wears on first dates. The one she probably wore on her first date with him.

 

 

In my defense, I didn’t know who he was. To me, he was a cool, calm, confident stranger. He was perfection for the entire hour and a half train ride while the concrete jungle turned into a rolling green landscape.

To an outsider, we probably appeared more friends than hopeful lovers. But my blush came quickly, and his dimples indented with every smile. We definitely shared a spark of what could be.

Too bad I didn’t know who he was before I fell for him, because he can’t be mine.

Duchess in his Bed(Review Post)

Published August 20, 2019 by bookbesties

“Heath is known for her beautiful, deeply emotional romances.”—Washington Post

For a duchess with practical desires, falling in love is an inconceivable part of her plan…

As owner of the Elysium Club which caters to women’s fantasies, Aiden Trewlove is accustomed to introducing adventurous ladies to sin and vice. But he is uncharacteristically intrigued by the mysterious beauty who visits his club one night, yearning to indulge in the forbidden—with him. Drawn to her indomitable spirit, he breaks his rule of never becoming personally involved with his clientele and is determined to fully awaken her desires.

A recent widow, Selena Sheffield, Duchess of Lushing, has never known passion, not until Aiden’s slow, sensual seduction leads her on a journey of discovery and incredible pleasure. But her reasons for visiting the notorious club are not all that they seem.

As Selena’s motives become complicated by love, she finds herself with a most unexpected choice: forge ahead with a secret plan that could secure her future—or follow her heart which could prove ruinous.

Run read alert!!

I could not put this book down!!! Another wonderful tale of the Trewloves and how they find love.  As you all know from my reviews of the previous books in this series I LOVE THIS FAMILY!  I especially love Aiden and this book.  I really hoped Aiden would find a lover who would be perfect for him and Lorraine Heath surely did not disappoint with Selena.

          Aiden Trewlove is one of the bastards who was raised by EttieTrewlove and made a name for himself -in spite of his low up-bringing- by owning and running a notorious “ladies only” club, where women from all walks of life can come and enjoy themselves by whatever means took their fancy. His success has been attributed to his ability to charm the patrons of the club all the while maintaining a strict policy to never get involved with any of them and to NEVER give his heart away. 

        Selena Sheffield, Duchess of Lushing, is newly widowed and facing the loss of the financial backing needed to keep her family afloat.  In an attempt to save it all she make a trip to the notorious Elysium Club with the plan to get pregnant and pass the baby off as the heir of her late husband.  Will the gentleman she chooses go along with her scheme and save her family or will they both have a change of heart?

Again I could not put this book down! It is my favorite of the series and I hope you all will love it as much as I do.

This is Wild Cover Reveal by Natasha Madison!

Viktor

My parents told me I skated before I walked. When I was eighteen I was drafted
into the N.H.L third overall, playing in Los Angeles—the city of dreams. What
more could I ask for? I played hard, but eventually, I partied even harder.
Five years later I was traded a week after I entered rehab. There was no time
for anything except my health and making sure I’d come out on top. I had to be
better. There wasn’t another option.

One of the rules of recovery was
‘don’t fall in love’ and I made it a top priority. She was off limits in every
single way.
Until it was too late
 
Zoe

When you grow up surrounded by hockey players you know one thing for sure, I
was never going to settle down with one. Heck, I didn’t even know what icing
was. I was too busy climbing the corporate ladder, becoming one of the most
successful realtors in New York City. I wasn’t interested in dating or anything
that got in my way.

First, he was my client and then
he became my friend.
One night, one decision, one act
can derail everything.
When push comes to shove, I’m
only certain that, This is Wild.

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers
flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals.
You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or
possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her
characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

just her brother’s best friend.


When the opportunity to show her what’s been right in front of her this whole
time presents itself, I take it, holding nothing back this time.


Wren thinks we’re pretending, but there’s nothing fake about the way I feel.


After all, she’s always had…a pizza my heart.

Truly Mine & Truly Yours Cover Reveal!

Published June 5, 2019 by bookbesties

 

The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a
brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed
skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized.
As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and
taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a
desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest
sin, but I was no saint.
Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting
her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs.
Friends. It’s all we can ever be.
After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I
want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to
protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away
and makes it clear she doesn’t need me.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the
good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend
and I start throwing punches.
And ends when I’m arrested for his murder.

Dirty Flirty Enemy Cover Reveal!

Published May 23, 2019 by bookbesties

HTML

He’s the arrogant Manhattan
realtor with billboards advertising his six-pack more than his expertise in
negotiations.
I’m the competing broker who stupidly moved across the hall
from his office.

From day one, I’ve been his sworn enemy. Okay, so I might
have accidentally stolen one of his clients. Well, is it stealing if the client
comes to me?

Even our vicious banter and loathing gazes can’t hide the
chemistry between us. Who can blame me? He has enough charisma to make every
hot-blooded woman in the city melt with a single word.

Just when I think a mutual respect could be born between us,
the biggest developer in the city offers us an opportunity that pits us against
each other.

Time to forget Carmelo Mancini’s dreamy eyes and tight abs.

Game on.
