SERIES BLITZ: Awkward Love Series by Missy Johnson




Title: It's Complicated
Series: Awkward Love #1
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance
Release Date: December 13, 2017



Blurb

They call him the Anaconda, and I'm pretty sure it isn’t because he likes snakes.

Nick Jenson is my neighbor. My hot, oh-so-sexy, very-well-equipped neighbor that I’d spend hours watching from the safety of my bedroom window.

I saw lots of things I probably shouldn’t have. Sometimes I’d touch myself, imagining it were his hands roaming over my body instead of my own. I had just one mission—to find out if the rumors were true.

Then one day, he caught me watching him.

I was mortified. I was prepared to quit college, move to another country, and live the rest of my life saying, “Nick who?” But, apparently, life had other ideas.

Because Nick? Well, he isn’t just my neighbor … He’s also my father’s best friend. If I thought things were difficult before, they were about to get a whole lot more complicated.


Oh, and those rumors? Holy fuck, are they true …

Title: I Can Explain
Series: Awkward Love #2
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance
Release Date: February 15, 2018



Blurb

Standing on the balcony, outside my boss’s apartment, wearing only my underwear?

Not how I expected to start my Saturday morning.

I guess I should’ve thought harder about going home with my sexy new gym instructor, especially since I had no idea the guy was married. When he pushed me out onto the balcony, five seconds before his wife walked through the door, I jumped one apartment over because I thought it would be less embarrassing for a stranger to find me than his wife.

That was a smart move.

So here I am, wearing next to nothing and freezing my ass off, standing outside the living room window of my young, sexy, and very intimidating boss, Chase Winston.

I have two choices: I sit here and try to think of another way out of this and risk dying of hypothermia. Or I can suck it up and knock on that window. After a long, internal argument with myself, I choose
option two.

Here goes nothing…

Title: Too Much Information
Series: Awkward Love #3
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance
Release Date: April 16, 2018



Blurb

We've all been there.

One minute, you're sprawled out on your bed, minding our own business and the next you're lying in the back seat of your best friend's car as she races you to the ER.

And not the closest one either.

No. You're headed to the one fifty miles farther out, because the one five minutes away is where you start your residency next week.

So there you are, lying in cubical nine, hoping like hell that the doctor about to examine you isn't young, sexy or male.

Of course he's all three.

Telling him about the clitmaster7000 I have lodged inside me is by far the single most embarrassing moment of my life.

Discovering he's my brother's new roommate is even worse.

Title: Comfort Zone
Series: Awkward Love #4
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance
Release Date: June 15, 2018



Blurb

There's nothing quite like watching your professor as he motorboats a stripper.

The expression on his face when he looked up and saw me standing there would've been funny if I wasn't so mortified. I wanted to turn around and run, but I couldn't do that to Jake. It was his bachelor party, after all.

So, instead, we stumbled our way through the world's most awkward conversation, because what do you say after witnessing that?

At least things couldn't get much worse, right?

Wrong.

The real fun began when the guys figured out how we knew each other.

Have you ever heard of the term frottage? Yeah, neither had I. Just like I'd completely underestimated how awkward it would be getting a lap dance from another woman while my professor watches, or how turned on I'd be.

My first mistake was going there in the first place.
My second mistake was not leaving the moment I saw him.
My third mistake, and the one I regret most?

Applying for that TA position with him last week…

NEW RELEASE, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: About Time by B Cranford




Title: About Time
Series: The Avenue #1
Author: B. Cranford
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2018



Blurb

It’s all about timing . . .

Ten years. That’s how long Ashton Andrews spent wondering if she would ever have the family she craved, with a man who was apparently not the one.

Six weeks. Time spent patiently waiting, silently hoping and endlessly wondering if the decision she’d made to go it alone was the right one.

Nine months. Morning sickness, cravings and that constant need to pee are what Ashton has to look forward to, knowing that numbered are her days of being just one.

Fifteen years, eight days. An eternity ago were those unforgettable moments spent crushing on her brother’s best friend, yet her mind constantly turns to him—the one who got away.

The one who might yet be her one.

It’s probably about time she found out . . .

About Time is a contemporary romance featuring 30-something characters who know that life is short and know what they want.


Danielle's Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐



Ashton has two brothers, Aaron & Austin. And after some family drama, she decides she’s going with Aaron to college to get away from it all for a bit. It’s at this time she meets Duncan, her brother’s roommate. 

The chemistry between them at 19 & 21 years of age is intense, but nothing more than flirtation and one steamy kiss happen before she has to return home. 

Many years pass before they are reunited, both having wondered more than once over the years...what if?

Now that they’ve come together again, and realized the feelings are still there, what will they do about it? 

What I liked most about this story, was the fact that there wasn’t any sordid drama between the two that broke them up all those years ago. It just simply never went far because of timing and what not. And Ash’s brothers, they’re just fantastic secondary characters! 


About Time is my first read of B. Cranford’s. I thoroughly enjoyed this storyline. My only complaint is that it’s written in third person :| Yes. I know.

Purchase: 

Purchase Print: 




Liam Walsh is just a roommate.

Maybe if Charlie St. James repeats it enough, she’ll stop lusting after him. Not that it matters how she feels anyway, because Liam will always see her as one of the boys. Hell, he’s the one who gave her the nickname Charlie as a joke. 

Well, the joke’s on her. 

Now that she is confined to less than 1,000 square feet with him, she can’t stop thinking about how it would feel to get just a little bit closer. 

Charlie St. James is off limits. 

She’s been Liam Walsh’s best friend since grade school. He thought it wouldn’t be a big deal to let her crash with him when she needed a place to stay, but he was dead wrong. Knowing only a thin wall separates them when they sleep, that she’s naked in the shower while he lays in bed fantasizing about her, is unbearable. 

When their cozy two bedroom goes from friend zone to war zone, they’ll either burn up the sheets or go down in flames.

NEW RELEASE & EXCERPT: Co-Ed by Rachel van Dyken




Title: Co-Ed
Author: Rachel Van Dyken
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: April 24, 2018



Blurb

Four guys. 

Constant moaning. 

And a revolving door across the college suite I somehow ended up in because my first name is Shawn. 

They don't discriminate. Girls. Guys. Grandmas. Plants (okay maybe not plants) all walks of life stroll in stressed to the brim, and leave so satisfied I'm wondering what sort of talents lie behind that door. 

My roommate calls them the pleasure ponies. 

But the rest of the college campus? 

They just call them the new face of Wingmen Inc. A paid for relationship service that makes big promises. 

Breakup? They'll glue you back together again. 

Depressed? They have the magic pill. 

Lonely? Just spend a few minutes while they rub you down and you'll forget all about it. 

And broken hearts? Well, that's their specialty. They'll fix you.

For a price…

I swore I wouldn't get involved. 

But apparently they like a challenge, and a girl who doesn't put up with their BS is basically like waving a red flag in front of a bull. 

They. All. Charged. 

But one holds my attention above the rest. 

Knox Turner looks like a Viking — and getting pillaged is starting to look more appealing by the day. Though he's hiding something — all of them are. And the closer I get. The more I realize that some things are left better in the past.

You've read reverse harem books before — but you've never read one like this. It's not what you think, or is it? Dive in and find out…

Knox, Leo, Finn, and Slater are waiting, and they aren't patient men. 

Welcome to the new face of Wingmen Inc — You're welcome.

Excerpt

I would regret it later - my heart knew it - but I was a caretaker by nature, so when I grabbed his hand and gave it a tug toward the bed, I was surprised he followed.
Even more surprised that when he joined me in his bed, he didn't try to pull me into his embrace; he didn't even touch me, just laid there and stared up at the ceiling like the monsters were going to come back.
"You need to sleep," I whispered, turning on my side and facing him. "Or you'll be even grumpier in the morning."
He smiled at that. "Am I really that grumpy?"
"Scale of one to ten?" I shrugged. "You flirt with an eight or nine on a good day."
"Shit." He took a deep breath. "For the record, I'm sorry."
"For?"
"Being myself." He didn't offer any more explanation. Instead, he turned away from me, tucked a pillow under his head, and slept.
We were strangers.
And still, when I woke up with the bed empty…
I realized.
It was the first time I'd slept through the night since transferring, and it would happen to occur in my enemy's bed.

BLOG TOUR: Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas





Title: Birthday Girl
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Author: Penelope Douglas
Release Date: April 17, 2018



Buy a Copy Here







Synopsis:


JORDAN 

He took me in when I had nowhere else to go. 

He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe. 

He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work. 

I have to stop this. It can’t happen. 

My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable. 

Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one. 

I am. 

PIKE 

I took her in, because I thought I was helping. 

She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement. 

As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to. 

The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me. 

But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight. 

And her boyfriend’s father. 

Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house. 

*BIRTHDAY GIRL is a stand-alone, contemporary romance suitable for ages 18+.







Excerpt: 


Jordan is working at a bar, and Pike comes in to meet friends. 

PIKE 

“What the hell is she wearing?” I grumble, sliding into the booth. 

Dutch turns his head toward me, his drink inches from his lips. “It’s the lingerie show,” he tells me. “They have it every Thursday night. The bartenders and servers don nighties or corsets and serve drinks and food. It’s fun.” 

No, not really. 

But I look around and see a few other ladies carrying out appetizers and bringing drinks, some of them in very thin attire. At least Jordan’s corset looks as thin as armor. 

“But Jordan’s never done it before,” he goes on. “That’s what shocked me. Thought you should know.” 

“Why the fuck would I want to know?” I pull a beer out of the ice bucket on the table. 

“Yeah, sorry.” He turns away, mumbling into his glass, “You seem like you couldn’t care less.” 

I shoot him a sideways look, hearing the laughter in his words. 

Sticking the beer back in the bucket, untouched, I rise and head to the bar. I hear a snort behind me, but I don’t care. She’s kind of my responsibility, and I don’t want her doing things like this, because she thinks she needs money. 

There’s only one bartender besides Jordan. The owner, Shel. I’m sure she hasn’t forgotten me, so I veer to the opposite end and catch Jordan’s attention as she pops the tops from a line of six bottles of beer. 

“What the hell are you wearing?” I lean in, speaking as quietly as I can. 

She jerks her head toward me, meets my eyes, and quickly turns away again like I’m the last person she wants to deal with right now. 

She hands over the beers, collects the cash and spins around, punching the screen in front of her. “It’s fine,” she assures me. “It’s just a corset, Pike.” 

“They are all looking at you.” 

She nods, smiling sarcastically. “That’s the point.” 

“Jordan,” I sigh, trying to whisper as I squeeze around some old dude at the bar. “This is a small town. What if your father were to walk in?” 

“He doesn’t come in here,” she says, closing the register drawer and finally looking at me. “And neither do you, normally.” A blush crosses her cheeks. “Besides, I’m not stupid. I wouldn’t take part in something I thought would humiliate me.” 

She turns and hands the change back to the customer, but he waves her off, letting her keep it. She smiles and turns back around, dropping the bills into an already overflowing canister. 

“What are you even doing here?” she says, starting to mix another drink. “I thought you were sitting the bachelor party out, because…” She sets the bottle down and does air quotes as she imitates my growling voice, “‘there needed to be at least one sober person at work tomorrow’.” 

I arch a brow at her. I don’t sound like that. 

Reaching into my pocket, I pull out the flyer and push it over the bar at her. 

She stills, and her face goes ashen. “Where did you find that?” 

She grabs it and dumps it somewhere under her. To a trash can probably. 

Taking a napkin, she sets it in front of a customer and gives him the fresh drink she just made. 

“If you need money,” I tell her, “I’ll lend you whatever you need, okay?” 

And she stops, slowly turning her eyes on me. Her gaze sharpens, angry, and she looks like she wants to yell at me, but she doesn’t. Instead she whips around and barrels down the bar and through the partition, turning only enough to crook a finger at me before she twirls back around and heads down the hallway. 

My stomach sinks. I really don’t mean to piss her off as much as I do. What did I say now? 

Veering through the crowd, I make my way down the empty hallway, finally coming to the same room she was crying in when I pissed her off the last time. 

Entering through the open door, I see her standing with her hands on her hips and her head cocked at me. 

“I would rather eat from a dumpster than take money from you,” she bites out. 

I should shut up. But God help me, I can’t. “Hate to break it to you, but you already do,” I tell her. “You live in a house where you pay no rent or utilities, young lady.” 

“I cook and clean for you!” she shouts, but I doubt anyone can hear us back here and through the music. “I pay my way, you arrogant prick!” 

“Alright, alright,” I growl, blinking long and hard. “You’re right, okay? But, Jordan, men will get ideas. They’ll think they have a free pass and they can touch what belongs to my son. You’re embarrassing him.” 

“Your son?” she mocks, laughing. “Well, you just missed him, actually. He already saw me, and he doesn’t care, Pike. He thought I looked good, and then he left with his friends. He doesn’t care!” 

“Well, I care!” 

The words are out of my mouth before I can stop them, and I freeze, almost too afraid to breathe. 

Oh, shit. What did I just say?

My life is exactly the way I have designed it.
But an undeserving, sick monster is dating my only daughter.

People may be afraid of me, but it doesn’t stop them from wanting me.


★Now a complete series!! *These books were designed so you can read them out of order. However, they all interconnect and would be best enjoyed by reading them all!*

★★★Purchase★★★ 



Claire's Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was so happy when this beauty arrived on my kindle, the last book in the Four Fathers series. The first three books can be read in any order but this one must come last. I would advise though that the books are read it complete order to prevent spoilers.

This book focuses on Jax Wheeler; the neighbour of Eric Pearson, and father of Rowan who was seduced by Eric. This story goes back to the beginning of the series and shows Jax's point of view in the background of the other characters stories. 

Jax is not like all the others, he has a hidden dark side and plenty of secrets locked away. After he loses his daughter to Eric Pearson his true self rises to the surface.

This series has been an incredible read which I cannot recommend enough! So excited that we will be seeing it continuing with these four amazing authors with Four Sons.
