Review & Giveaway: Seaside Embrace by Melissa Foster


SEASIDE SUMMERS BOOK #6
Voted Beck Valley Books Reviewers Favorite Mini Series from the Love in Bloom Series in 2014
Featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They're funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.

SEASIDE EMBRACE 
After working hard all day, creating his beautiful metal sculptures, sinfully sexy Hunter Lacroux likes to unwind with a hot, sexy babe--or two. But after spending a handful of naughty nights with seductive and beautiful Jana Garner, the woman who challenges everything he does and says, Hunter wants more.

As a dancer, boxer, actress, and waitress, Jana is tough, organized, and as dedicated as she is committed. She has to be to maintain her crazy schedule. But when it comes to men, Jana's had a string of bad relationships, and there's only thing she'll commit to--not committing.

White-hot passion ignites every time Jana and Hunter are together, but the closer Hunter gets, the faster Jana runs. When Hunter lays on the charm, Jana throws out a challenge she's sure he can't meet, and Hunter steps up to the plate, forcing her to face her hurtful past or let go of him forever.

SEASIDE EMBRACE is part of the SEASIDE SUMMERS series, and the newest addition to the "Love in Bloom" family. Each book may be read as a stand-alone novel, or as part of the series.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My Review


It's a romantic story, passionate with two strong and amazing characters.
Jana is too busy to pursue her dream, she wants her professional fulfillment, has no time and desire to have a serious and stable relationship. Her ideal partner is Hunter, a playboy who doesn't want a romantic love story. The chemistry between them is really hot. It seems both pleased with this relationship until she challenges him to do something different, be romantic with a woman. This challenge will make it clear to Hunter what he really wants. Will he win the wounded heart of Jana?
Hunter has always been a playboy who enjoy relationships without commitment. But when he realizes that Jana is the only woman he wants in life, he changes completely. He is willing to wait, complies with her needs and tries to give her safety with his love. He's really a great guy, sweet, sexy, determined. Jana seems cocky and self-confident but deep inside is very fragile and terrified to open her heart, especially with a playboy like Hunter. She had terrible disappointments in the past and it is understandable her fear.
I'm happy to be back in Seaside, I love this city, I would like to live here and get to know its inhabitants, especially women. I love their friendship, the support that they always give each others and their way of welcoming new arrivals.
This is part of the Seasise Summers series but could easily be read by itself. I highly recommend the other Seaside books, once you read one you will want to read them all.
I love more and more Melissa Foster and look forward to her new release. She creates magical and cozy places to live and characters very realistic, believable and fascinating
This is a must read, as I started reading it I could not put it down. For anyone who enjoys sweet reads this may be perfect for you!

No Place Like Home
by Jennifer Kacey

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Coming Home, Book 1

In high school, Bianca Charleston was a nobody. An overweight wallflower, so invisible that Cole, the boy she had a crush on, never even knew she existed.

Things have changed, and she’s finally ready to show off her new bombshell look. Sort of. Maybe. After a one-sided pep talk with her cat, she takes a deep breath and flies home to help out with the annual hospital carnival. Cole is there, too—and he still has no idea who she is.

FBI field officer Cole Johnson doesn’t have an easy job, and his nights are usually booked solid. Then in walks Charlie, a blonde with killer…everything. Suddenly he’s mentally clearing his schedule for a rare night out. While Charlie doesn’t do one-night stands, somehow after-dinner dessert is served up against the wall of her hotel room. But happiness will have to navigate an emotional minefield of preconceived notions—and a couple of not-so-secret stumbling blocks.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:


“Bet you were happy. Being able to reinvent yourself like that.”

“Reinvent. I’d never really thought about it that way. But you’re absolutely right.”

Her shy smile tugged at his heart, which needed to shut the hell up. “I know something about that.”

“So you know who I am but I don’t know who you are.”

“And we’re going to keep it that way.” She moved around him and headed toward the door.

“Why?”

Hesitation made her stutter her words. “It’s…uhh…getting late and I have a lot of packets still to deliver. Plus, I’m sure you have tons of work to do. Can’t imagine you get much downtime around here.”

He glanced at his computer screen. He really needed to get back to it. He didn’t have time to talk to her, nor pursue her. His plate was full. Overflowing even. And he had Addyson. So he opened his mouth to tell her it was nice meeting her and maybe he’d see her at the carnival. “Want to go out and we can catch up? That way you won’t feel like you’re interrupting and I can concentrate on you.”

What?

Her eyes went wide and her fingers wrapped around her purse strap as if he were some kind of pod person. “Like a date?”

“I’m kind of out of practice but I’m trying to be all suave so you’ll take pity on me and say yes.”

“Charming, too.”

He decided to own it. “Normally not.”

“Really?”

She sounded skeptical or hopeful. He didn’t know which, but he sure as hell wanted a chance to know more.

Seattle Bachelors #1

Releasing March 1st, 2016
Forever: Forever Yours


Safety. Anonymity. Invisibility. 

Those are just a few advantages of Internet “dating.” Even better, as far as Hannah Miller is concerned, is the fact that she can shed all inhibitions without worrying about what he thinks of her figure or her face. “He” is bikerboy357, the man who knows what Hannah likes, and wants her—every night—as much as she wants him. When he asks to meet, Hannah hesitates. But the temptation is too strong. And after one look into his sultry green eyes, there’s no turning back.

Cade MacKenzie’s never met a woman who’s wasn’t blinded by his billion-dollar net worth, but “H” knows neither his face nor his name. Her words are so smart, sweet, and scorchingly sexy that Cade’s willing to gamble she’ll be just as amazing in person. And she is. But even as every delicious encounter makes Cade want Hannah more, what he wants most is her trust.

It’s something all his money can’t buy. And now, Cade will do anything to earn it.

Book Blast: Stealing Serenity By Tami Veldura


Title: Stealing Serenity
Author: Tami Veldura
Size: Novella
Genre: MM Romance
Released: July 2014


Stealing Serenity is back with a brand new cover, blurb and a whole new chapter to celebrate its 2nd Edition:

What happens when a master thief meets a master ropesman . . . he gets all tied up!
Daniel has worked the confidence game many times in the pursuit of a prize. This time it’s for “Serenity,” a photograph worth four million dollars, and it represents the largest payday Daniel has ever chased. To uncover its whereabouts he needs to get close to Kearin, the auction house owner and photographer.
Kearin knows that Daniel will be an asset for the non-profit arm of his business when he meets him at an event, but his job offer is a cover for his real motive: to get Daniel in front of his camera. Preferably naked, bound, and needy to fulfill a specific request for a client−a portfolio that will put him at the top of his field.

Daniel readily agrees to model for Kearin−thinking it will lead him to “Serenity”−but what he doesn’t expect is to fall for Kearin’s brand of intensity instead. Will he go for the photograph or Kearin’s heart?

Review & Giveaway: Crash and Burn by Michele Callahan


Crash and Burn
by Michele Callahan

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Romance, Contemporary, New Adult

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

A childhood promise has Chance Walker picking up a guitar once again. Sure, he's been busy growing up, finishing college, and even law school. He made a promise to his dying mother and he’s determined to keep it. While his guitar playing dreams were big when he was a kid, his skill is rusty and he hires Erin Michaelson to bring music back into his life. Not only is she incredibly talented, she's one of the sexiest women he’s ever met. It's hard to focus on correct finger position when her sweet scent threatens to drive him out of his mind.

Less than twenty-four hours after his first lesson he sees her again, but this time she’s on stage using another name and seducing an entire audience of men. He played the gentleman card once, and it got him nowhere. This time, all bets are off and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her. A single, sizzling backstage kiss will change both of their lives forever, because Chance soon realizes that Erin is not just an itch, she’s an obsession that he refuses to live without.

Erin Michaelson spends her days teaching guitar and her nights on stage as her sexy alter-ego, Eva James. Music is her dream, her passion. All she wants is to say goodbye to a lifetime of scraping by, working two jobs, and paying for past mistakes. When a major record label exec hears her band play, she gets her big break. But life can be a real bitch, and meeting Chance now is just bad timing.

Problem #1: The record label wants her to dump her band and move to L.A. Problem #2: She hadn’t counted on Chance Walker and the scorching heat of that first kiss. And last but not least is Problem #3: Is Chance really falling in love with the dull guitar teacher, or is he really just lusting after the sexy Eva James?

Will success make all of Erin's dreams come true? Or will falling in love make them both crash and burn?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My Review:

A nice love story, engaging, romantic and sexy, to be read in one breath.
Erin and Chance have a great passion for the music that binds and unites them. As a child Chance wanted to become a rock star but then chose to become a lawyer. When his mother dies he understand he was wrong to give up his dream. So he decides to start playing the guitar. He takes lessons from Erin. She is a sweet girl, attractive but the evening turns and becomes a rock star really sexy. She's fabulous on that stage and Chance loses his heart to her. He finds the courage to kiss her and nothing will be as before. Erin receives a truly unique proposition, not to be missed. But it would mean moving to Los Angeles, to be forced to always wear her sexy mask and abandon Chance. 
The characters are believable and engaging. Erin is a sweet and shy girl but her passion for music gave her the strength and courage to go on stage and become Eva James. She takes care with love of her brother even though he often doesn't deserve it and is very badly with her. Chance understands he was wrong and he's living a life that is not for him. Will he have time to change? Will he have the courage to do it?
It 's a well-written romance, with a flowing and brilliant style, the love story is really sweet and special.
I was pleased to find out that this was the first book in a series. This book was really amazing so I will be interested to read the next book in this series.
Highly recommended for those who love romantic stories set in the world of music.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:

“Do you want to kiss me?”

Erin licked her lips. He was asking her. Giving her control and being a gentleman about it. And that, combined with the fact that she hadn’t been able to stop thinking about him since he’d walked out of the shop yesterday, had her nodding her head before she’d even answered his question.

“Yes.” Erin dropped her head back with a soft moan as Chance’s lips traced heated patterns across her cheek. He shifted slightly, holding her face still with gentle hands as he took his sweet time lowering his mouth to hers.

She could hardly breathe. Her whispered admission had sent her over the edge and into the dark abyss where common sense and reason ceased to exist. He leaned forward and the kiss started as a gentle exploration, as if he needed to coax a wild animal, like he was afraid she’d run.

He didn’t taste her, he plundered and explored. His kiss branded her with the faint taste of whiskey and heat. He owned her mind and her body in that moment. He left her nowhere to hide and no room to retreat. She was on fire and her world narrowed to the exotic taste of his mouth, the strong arms that circled her waist, the aggressive heat of his body pressed to hers, and the soft glide of his hair in her fists as she pulled him closer, demanded he give her more.

She whimpered and the needy sound barely registered. In some far away, logical place in her mind, she knew she’d never made that sound before. It should have served as a warning, instead it pushed her further into madness. She never wanted to stop…
