So what’s to come in 2018? Well, I’m hoping to be posting more regularly again. The biggest thing that I learned this year was that I don’t need to be writing a review for every book I read and I also don’t need to post every day. I’ll be posting all about the new reading challenge I’m going to be taking part in, in my next post so to finish off here, I would just like to say thank you to all my follows for being patient as I know I have been pretty MIA recently and I hope you all have an awesome 2018!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 🍾

Man Card By Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby: Cover Reveal

Welcome to the Cover Reveal of Man Card by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby!

Cover:

ManCard_finalcolor.jpg

Synopsis

Nothing ventured, nothing banged…

Ash
I still don’t know how it happened. One minute I was arguing with my arrogant competitor–our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow I went from throwing down to kneeling down…
It can never happen again. I don’t even like Braht. He’s too slick. He’s a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes.
So why can’t I get him out of my head?
Braht
There are two things I know without question. One: Ash and I are destined for each other. Two: never trust a man with a unibrow.
Ash is my missing my piece. She’s the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me. They don’t call her the Ashkicker for nothing.
Eventually I’ll win her over…if my past doesn’t ruin everything first.

Ethan Kase wants his glory days back. And that includes having Lilah by his side. With her, he was magic. They were magic. All he has to do is make her see that.

Just when Lilah might finally be ready to let him in, though, she finds out their reunion has nothing to do with her and everything to do with his game. But Ethan’s already lost her once, and even if it costs him his career, he’ll do anything to keep from losing her again.

Wicked (A Wicked Saga #1) Jennifer L. Armentrout

Synopsis

Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

Review

Who doesn’t love a re-read? This week I reread Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout in preparation for the release of Brave. This was my third reading, and I have to say its one of those books that gets better each time I read it. It ticks all the boxes for me, badass heroine, super hot love interest and a hilarious sidekick!

The story is centered around Ivy, who works for a secret organisation called the Order. Ivy hunts and takes out Fae who have crossed over into the human world. The Fae in this story are the bad guys, who like nothing more than draining the life out of humans to maintain their long lives. Everything is all hunky dory until Ivy is shot by a fae who materialized a gun out of thin air – which is not a trait of a regular fae, these fae are Ancients, they are super powerful and can not be so easily taken out.

Ivy and Ren are so sweet together, I really love their banter and how they understand each other. Not to mention their scorching hot chemistry! I could almost see the sparks bouncing off the page.

Wicked 2

I can’t review this full and not mention Tink, I forgot how absolutely awesome he is! He seriously is my favorite sidekick of all time, so much sass in such a little being!

“Well, at least it’s not like you have a pet snake, because that shit would be weird. And I guess there are people who have more annoying roommates. I’ll be honest, though. I don’t trust the little shit, but I respect your decision.” “Well, I don’t trust you either, so what-the-fuck-ever,” Tink replied with a saucy grin as he stepped out from behind my leg.”

My Rating 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Feeling Hot By Elle Kennedy: COVER REVEAL!

Welcome to the cover reveal for Feeling Hot by Elle Kennedy.

Cover:

Feeling-Hot-Ebook

Blurb

A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy! Special pre-order and release week SALE price $0.99!

In tight quarters, anything can happen…

Fresh off a six-month deployment, Navy SEAL Cash McCoy is determined to end his celibacy streak with a night of down and dirty sex. Instead, he gets an interrupted hook-up with a hot blonde who vanishes without a way for him to contact her. When he’s asked to keep an eye on—and hands off—his CO’s sister for a few weeks to guard her from a psycho-stalker ex, Cash accepts the assignment as a distraction…and gets the surprise of his life.

Jen Scott knows she needs protection, but she’s not looking forward to being babysat by some straight-laced yes-man her overprotective brother can boss around. Finding out her new roomie is none other than the sexy stranger who was seconds away from shaking her world apart changes everything. Orders be damned, Cash is the one man capable of helping her explore her sexuality, and she’s even willing to break her own rule—never date military men—to get the gorgeous SEAL into her bed.

Only, Cash makes it clear he wants much more than she bargained for. Not just her body, but the one thing Jen promised herself she’d never give to a man in uniform. Her heart.

Warning: Sexy SEAL? Check. Sassy heroine determined to seduce him? Check. Scorching hot sex bound to make you blush? Double check. A threesome and some man-on-man action? Triple check. You’ve been warned.
