RELEASE BLITZ - Selfless by Shantel Tessier

Title: Selfless
Series: Selfish #3
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Romance
Release Date: September 30, 2017


I went against all I believed in and fell in love with what should have been a one-night stand! I fought it, tried to make up rules to prevent the inevitable, but somehow, he knew all along. He understood what I wanted and was willing to comply. I was the one who took him for granted. I was the one who made him walk away. And now, he’s gone and I’m left with nothing but my thoughts and regrets. He was never supposed to be my happily ever after. But my favorite love story ends in tragedy, so why wouldn’t mine?

I played the white knight, doing what every woman dreams of to win her over, yet it still got me nowhere! But what did I expect? I wasn’t the man she wanted! Nothing I could have done would have landed me the girl. I guess love is funny that way. One minute, you think you have the girl, and the next, you realize you were blinded. Walking away was hard, but watching her with another man was harder. Sometimes you have to pick your battles, and I know when I’ve lost. Love shouldn’t be a game, but I learned someone always loses. For once, I wasn’t the one being selfish, but I was the one who paid the price.

ARC REVIEW OF Smoke and Sin (The Perfect Gentlemen Book 4) by Shayla Black &, Lexi Blake

Smoke and Sin (The Perfect Gentlemen Book 4) by [Black, Shayla, Blake, Lexi]

I have been counting down  Roman Calder & Augustine Spencer ‘s book for quite some time. I knew it would be a doozy of a story and whoa howdy, was this. I couldn’t put this book down, for the heat and the angst, the passion and the pain drew me in. It was quite possibly the best 2nd chance romance story I have read in some time. Not to mention the murder mystery on who killed their best friend  Maddox Crawford, which is definitely heating up along with the mystery surrounding Sergei .
What made this one my favorite Perfect Gentlemen book was Augustine and Roman were lovers back in law school.  She is also the sister of another group member, Dax. Back then she thought they could be together when Roman decided it was time to end things and how he did it was by breaking her heart. It was brutal.From then on, Augustine never let him back into her life and they were apart for over 10 years. She ends up working for the president and keeping her distance from Roman. It is during this trip for the President they end up in close quarters. There is a lot of angst and a lot of pain related to their past that keeps popping up-- Things that cause them both emotional harm/pain because they haven’t confronted the events of the past and until they do together, it will cause them both emotional harm and the contentious feelings will continued to be stirred up between them. Then Augustine has stepped into what perilous mystery that Zack and Roman are secretly into and finds herself in danger all due to what she uncovered not known to the others . What does Roman want to do? Protect her from all danger and at the same time, make sure they make it out alive. As they are trying to figure out what is going on between them and uncover this mystery, a secret from the past is finally revealed. Roman and Augustine have a complex and brilliant love story that spans over a decade. There is a lot of things that made it so complicated and emotional, tissues will be needed. I can say at times I wanted to throw my kindle when Roman acted like a jerk and there were times when I wanted to shake Augustine, to get her to just open up more with Roman. But that is how it is when the love is deep, and the past is riddled with so many misunderstandings and misapprehensions and just straight up pride. I loved reading how these lovers finally get together.
As always, the writing team of Lexi Blake and Shayla Black hit it out of the park with a complete home run with this book and in fact, with this series. Lots of answers provided but in the final pages of the book, a super surprise ending that involves Zack which leads us to his book. I can’t say more but I can say this blew me out of the water and took my breath away. I am psyched for Zack’s story next.

 My Rating:  4.9 stars *****

ARC Review Not For Sale by Tasha Fawkes & M. S. Parker

Not For Sale by [Fawkes, Tasha, Parker, M. S.]

You have Scott who was a playboy billionaire who was CEO of his father’s company while Megan was a woman who was working several part time jobs so that she and her mother just barely live paycheck to paycheck. When Megan sees a help wanted ad online she fills out an application . Once she fills it out she realizes it's Scott whom she went to high school with. 

When Megan knew Scott years before, it was in at a private school. Before their relationship could go any further, Megan had to drop out due to personal and monetary reasons. Now  fast forward years later and here they are meeting again. When they meet, Scott is  this playboy billionaire who is now engaged to be married to Kristin ,  the woman who is “pregnant” with his baby. Scott couldn’t believe his eyes when his old friend came to his office for an interview and when she did, there was this connection, this chemistry. Yet what a bad time for this to happen. There is a lot going on for Scott…he is having to get married or else he will make his dad mad and that is something he doesn’t want to risk and on top of that, the girl he wanted when he was younger has come  back into his life and is just as gorgeous as ever……..and the animal attraction is deep and running super-hot. What I liked was how strong Megan was…she knew she was not supposed to fall for Scott and when she messed up and had an affair with him, she accepted her role in everything. Scott was a bit weaker in everything. I wish he would have stood up to dad sooner … there were twists in this story which made the affair more believable otherwise I don’t think I would have accepted this story as much. Megan was a more tolerable character, likeable than Scott. There is good heat in this story but it isn’t my favorite by M.S. Parker and Tasha Fawkes.

 My Rating:  4.2  stars *****

Their Rigid Rules is the first book in the captivating and fast-paced Chemical Attraction Series. This romantic suspense novel will have you gripping the edge of your seat.

Taylor Valentine, a senior at Western Michigan University, has had her life planned out since kindergarten. After her parents died while she was still in high school, she had perfected it to make them proud. Now with the help of her best friends, Joe and Eva, she focuses on graduation and a career with romance in the far distant future. However, when the visiting professor enters the lecture hall to a four-weekend Civil War seminar, her perfect plan hits a snag.

As a handsome history professor and former marine, Dr. Stuart Morgan has his own set of strict rules especially with infatuated students. He enjoys his boring yet pleasant life until he starts receiving death threats. With his unwanted bodyguard in tow, Stuart is unnerved by his reaction to Taylor. Their rigid rules discourage all but a flirtation.

As the death threats become evident, the FBI believes Taylor’s the culprit, hindering their budding romance. When Taylor inadvertently becomes the target, Joe and Stuart whisk her away to protect her. Meanwhile, Joe struggles with his feelings for Taylor. He’s loved her since grade school. He won’t let her go and stands in Stuart’s way. The men push her to choose between the lifelong love of her best friend and the true love of her new boyfriend.

When word gets out that Professor Stuart Morgan had dated Taylor while in his class, the publicity takes a toll on their relationship. While Taylor recovers from a gunshot wound, Stuart struggles with his PTSD. Instead of sharing their pain, they drift further apart.

Even on her best behavior, Eva worries about the chaos she brings to Matt and David’s lives.

Before Joe heads to the FBI Academy, Director Peter Bingaman asks for his help on an unofficial case. He needs an outsider, who’s smart and quick on his feet. Joe jumps at the chance to test his skills. Before long, they uncover horrendous crimes. Suddenly, Joe’s in over his head.

Will Joe’s family put aside their problems and come to his aid before it’s too late? And what will that mean for his career as an agent?
