Cover Re-reveal - How We Deal With Gravity by Ginger Scott

HOW WE DEAL WITH GRAVITY by Ginger Scott is getting a new look! Check it out!



How We Deal With Gravity by Ginger Scott
NA Contemporary Romance
Blurb:
When her son Max was diagnosed with autism, Avery Abbot’s life changed forever. Her husband left, and her own dreams became a distant fantasy—always second to fighting never-ending battles to make sure Max was given opportunity, love and respect. Finding someone to fight along her side wasn’t even on her list, and she’d come to terms with the fact that she could never be her own priority again.

But a familiar face walking into her life in the form of 25-year-old Mason Street had Avery’s heart waging a war within. Mason was a failure. When he left his hometown five years ago, he was never coming back—it was only a matter of time before his records hit the billboard charts. Women, booze and rock-n-roll—that was it for him. But it seemed fate had a different plan in mind, and with a dropped record contract, little money and nowhere to go, Mason turned to the only family that ever made him feel home—the Abbots.

Avery loved Mason silently for years—until he broke her heart…completely. But time and life have a funny way of changing people, and sometimes second chances are there for a reason. Could this one save them both?

Someone to You - My Review of HER BOOK BOYFRIEND by K.R. Grace

Title: Her Book Boyfriend
Author: K.R. Grace
Publisher: Liasion Publishing
Publication: August 25, 2017
Source: ARC from publisher through Netgalley


She believes the secret to love is in the tropes of her favorite romance novels. He’s the best friend prepared to prove her wrong.

Then comes the bet.

If she can’t land a boyfriend for prom by recreating the ten popular tropes in her favorite romance author’s books, she has to go to the prom with her.

The glitch?

They’ve been close their entire lives. He’s the rock god and school legend, while she’s the brainy sidekick who does all his dirty breakups. Thus, finding a guy who doesn’t think they’re already an item is going to be a lot harder than she thinks.

Will she land the book boyfriend of her dreams? Or will she be forced to go to prom with her best friend.

The truth is in the pages.




I made the mistake of reading some reviews on Goodreads. I've seen criticism of both lead characters, but the good news is that I didn't seem to have the same problems with the book that others had.

Her Book Boyfriend is about a girl named Macey who is a book-loving, studious type of girl. Her best friend, Cam is in a popular teen band and often uses Macey to break up with his latest girl of the week.  Macey's never been in love and desperately doesn't want to graduate high school without experiencing a relationship of her own.

Macey makes a list of the plots from her favorite books. Altogether, she ends up with a rather spectacular list of favorite romance tropes. She begins to target boys to test out her plots on. It's often awkward and cringe-worthy, but it pokes a little fun at the romance world while moving Macey closer to her ultimate goal.

As Macey moves through her list, it becomes obvious that something is troubling Cam. At first, it seems like Cam just has some family drama that is weighing him down, but you soon realize that he is not as excited about Macey's list as she is.

Macey's path to romance in rocky and filled with pitfalls. People get hurt and bad decisions are made, but in the end, she succumbs to my favorite trope. And I'll let you read the book and see which one that is.

3.5 out of 5 Stars

Happy Release Day - Rebel by Rebecca Yarros

 

We are so excited to be sharing Rebecca Yarros's REBEL with you today! REBEL is the third standalone in the Renegades series and is out now--hurry and grab your copy today!


About REBEL

She’s Penna Carstairs. 

The Renegade they call Rebel. 

FMX-treme Magazine’s sexiest female athlete of the year. 

There’s no rule in extreme sports she hasn’t broken, No gender barrier she hasn’t demolished.   

She’s the woman I met in a bar in Vegas. 

The woman I illegally BASE jumped for. 

The woman I spent one insane, incredible night with. 

But now I’m screwed. 

Or rather…not screwed.   

Because the woman I can’t get out of my head is the one woman I can never touch again. 

I’m Dr. Cruz Delgado—the youngest professor on this campus, 

And Penelope Carstairs just walked into my class.
  
GET YOUR COPY TODAY!


EXCERPT
“Welcome to Latin American History.” 

At that deep, lightly accented voice, my pen fell to the paper, as useless as my brain. 

“This class will also serve as your Study At Sea seminar, which means I have the joy of getting to know each of you very well over the next three months since you’ll be writing a thirty-page thesis for me.” 

The class groaned, and I slowly dragged my eyes from the paper, past the neck of the red-haired boy in front of me, to the man who stood at the head of our class, casually leaning against his desk. I took in the way his pants hugged his hips, the contrast of his rolled white button-down against his tanned skin, and the loose green tie at his throat. My gaze caught on his lips, the strong line of his nose and cheekbones, to the melty chocolate eyes that were focused on the other side of the room as he addressed the students there. His hair looked like he’d run his hands through it more than a few times, and his teeth flashed white when he grinned, those panty-dissolving dimples appearing. 

My heart stopped beating and my breath froze in my lungs, as if the slightest motion would make him disappear. A rush of heat flushed my skin, and the knot in my chest loosened, unraveling as surely as my body had the last time I’d seen him. 

“So let’s get started, shall we? I just flew in from the States today, but I’ll be sure to learn all of your names by the end of the week. Now if you’ll let me have this moment, I’ve been waiting eight years to say it— My name is Dr. Delgado.” 

Two thoughts slammed into me simultaneously. 

One—Delgado. At least now I knew his last name. 

Two—Holy. Fucking. Shit. Cruz was my professor.   

 

DON'T MISS THE OTHER RENEGADES BOOKS!


WILDER

I’m Paxton Wilder. Motocross phenom & adrenaline junkie. I have more tattoos than scars. And I’ve never seen a stunt I couldn’t pull off— Or a girl I can’t get off. Until she walks in.   My new tutor is sexy, smart, more stubborn than I am, and one hundred percent off limits. That’s right—the only rule this semester is Don’t Touch the Tutor. For the first time in my life, I want someone I can’t have. She’s the girl who obeys every rule. I’m the guy who breaks them. Our biggest risk is falling for each other, But I live for risk…



NOVA

The only heart he wants is the one he already broke…
He’s Landon Rhodes.
The Renegade they call Nova.
Sinfully gorgeous, broody, tatted-up, professional snowboarder.
Four-time X Games medalist—
Full-time heartbreaker.
They say a girl broke him once—
That’s why he’s so reckless, so driven, so careless with his conquests.
But I’m that girl.
They can call me his curse all they want.
He and I both know the truth—
He’s the one who destroyed me,
And I’m not the sucker who will let that happen again.

Millie

Are you ready?he asked, pushing his glasses up his nose in what I was beginning to realize was a nervous gesture.

Yes,I replied, giving him a true smile. It was easier knowing that he was just as nervous as I was. Lets go.

Its a beautiful day, shall we walk?Jackson asked, mockingly holding out his arm in a gallant gesture.

I laughed at his silliness and tucked my arm in his.

Id love that.

As we started on the short walk to the coffee house, I asked, So, what made you get into high school English?

I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, and Ive always loved literature, so it seemed like a no-brainer,Jackson replied easily. I started out with your basic freshman English, but now I teach an advanced class, focusing on the classics, like Shakespeare, Austen, and Alcott, and its great because the kids in my class choose to be there, so they actually want to learn what Im teaching.

Wow, that sounds wonderful,I replied, my heart pitter-pattering at the thought of Jackson laying down to read Jane Austen at night. And very rewarding.

It is,he agreed. Just then, the wind kicked up and his scent hit me. A bit of spice, with a hint of something I couldnt name. He smelled wonderful.

I was beginning to wonder what the hell was wrong with this guy. There had to be something. No one was this perfect.

Maybe he picks his nose or bites his toenails

But as I looked at his profile, my hand warm on his arm, I hoped that I was wrong. I wanted him to be real.

About THE BEAUTY OF US:

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby delivers another sizzling novel in her delectable and sexy Fusion series.

Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting. Still, Riley knows it’s an opportunity she can’t afford to pass on. And when she meets Trevor Cooper, the show’s executive producer, she’s stunned by their intense chemistry.

Trevor’s sole intention is to persuade Riley to allow Best Bites TV to do a show on her restaurant. But when he walks into Riley’s office, he stops dead in his tracks. The professional, aloof woman on the phone is incredibly beautiful and funny. But can he convince her that he’s interested in Riley for himself? Or is he using the undeniable pull between them to persuade her to agree to his offer?

LISTEN TO ME 

CLOSE TO YOU 

BLUSH FOR ME


        


“There seems to be an explosion in the jackass population,” I reply, and sigh, passing my glass to Kat for a refill. 

“Where are you meeting them?” he asks, and I bite my lip. 

“I don’t want to tell you.” 

“Online,” he says with a nod. 

“I didn’t say that!” 

“Didn’t have to. If you met him at the gym or the grocery store, or somewhere else in person, you wouldn’t be embarrassed.” 

“I’m not embarrassed.” 

“Yes, you are. Otherwise, you wouldn’t mind telling me.” 

“Fine.” I sigh and rub my forehead with my fingers. “I met them online.” 

“Stop that,” he says. 

“I don’t know where else I’d meet people,” I reply. “I’m at work at least fifty hours a week. I don’t do school or clubs or church, and I rarely go to the grocery store because I always eat here.” 

“I could stop feeding you,” Mia interjects and I toss her a glare. 

“I’m just saying, if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.” 

“I don’t understand any of the words you just said.” I squint at him, trying to process. 

“Switch it up,” he says with a grin. “Try to meet people somewhere else. I mean, you didn’t meet me online, and I’m not an asshole.” 

“Sure, you’re cute, and you look like you have your shit together, but I suspect that once I got to know you I’d learn that you have mommy issues and fourteen dogs.” 

“You might,” he says with a thoughtful nod. “I do hide those things well. All I’m saying is, stop using the dating sites and try meeting people in real life.” 

“Yeah. Easy for you to say.” I pout into my wineglass. “Do I need to send you some money for this counseling session?” 

“Nah, the first one’s on me,” he says, tossing that crazy-hot smile at me again. “Just don’t combine Star Wars and Star Trek anymore and that’s payment enough for me.” 

He pulls a few bills out of his wallet and tosses them on the bar, then stands to leave. 

“Have a good night, and good luck,” he says. 

“Thanks.” Just as he’s almost out of view, I call out. “Wait! I didn’t ask your name.” 

“Trevor,” he says, and my stomach immediately does at least four cartwheels. “Trevor Cooper.” 

“You’re early,” is all I can think to say. My cheeks burning, my fingertips immediately tremble. “You’re not supposed to be here for two more days.” 

“I like to come early. Get the lay of the land, that sort of thing.” He smiles and waves. “See you in a couple of days.” 

He walks away, and as soon as I hear the front door close, I turn to my friends and just stare at them in utter horror. 

“Tell me that didn’t just happen.”   

 
 

About Kristen Proby: Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years. 

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list. 

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series. Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

YOU SAY IT FIRST Synopsis:

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fool's Gold romances invites you to visit Happily Inc, a wedding destination founded on a fairytale...

Sculptor Nick Mitchell grew up in a family of artists and learned from his volatile father that passion only leads to pain. As he waits on a new commission, he takes a day job as a humble carpenter at a theme wedding venue. The job has its perks--mainly the venue's captivating owner, Pallas Saunders. Although he won't let love consume him, for ecstasy with an expiration date, he's all in.

Pallas adores Weddings in a Box. But if she can’t turn the floundering business around, she’ll have no choice but to cave to her domineering mother and trade taffeta for trust funds working at the family’s bank. Then when a desperate bride begs Pallas for something completely out of the box, her irresistible new hire inspires her. Nick knows she doesn't belong behind a desk, and she knows in her heart that he's right—where she really belongs is in his arms.
