Book Review"Truth Love By Kay Brown

I was given a copy for an honest review
With her Creole roots and southern attitude, Trutheana is a true New Orleans woman. After moving from New York City, she's back in her old neighborhood, doing everything she can to further her independence. But between her weakness for men and a series of strange events, things go bad fast.
With three men in the wings, each having their own agenda, Truth insists on making her own rules. Street savvy and strong-willed, she has to choose wisely the path she takes. But when she finally gets a place of her own, her past reappears in a violent way. Death and murder seem to be all around, so it's time to get out of town again.
Truth hightails it back to the Big Apple, taking her new love, Kenneth, her best friend, Kaya, and sister Franky along with her. After a personal betrayal, Truth realizes she might have just made the biggest mistake of her life.
In order for Truth to make it out of this situation alive she will have to trust the one person whom she thinks will have her back….But will they?


Review
First I would Like to say thank you to Kay Brown for sending me a copy! Now to the best part, my review. Our leading lady Truth is a strong and independent woman. She's quick witted and feisty with her good looks it's easy for her to steal your man. But besides that, Truth is a woman who has clearly been hurt and has trouble showing love. This is why I think she doesn't know when she is being tricked with false affection. Truth is so focused on not being used she can't see who really loves her.This story is fast paced and well written. While reading this I couldn't put it down, I needed to know what was going to happen.The down side to this novel is that it was over before I wanted! I can't wait for a sequel.  Also, I knew Kenneth was a snake when she went to his house and didn't see nothing that connected to his "job", that's where she slipped up. But I'm glad that I had the chance to read this. It was amazing and I would recommend it to my friends and followers. So If your reading this right now go get your self a copy! - Nia Houston


About The Author
Kay Brown is a proud New Orleans, Louisiana, native who writes drawing heavily from her past experiences, from seeing a lot in the streets to surviving the life altering Hurricane Katrina. Despite her various life challenges and personal setbacks, Brown went on to receive her associate degree from a local community college. It was there where Brown first discovered her love for writing and finally tapped into her creative spirit. However, it was after she returned to New Orleans after being displaced two years due to Hurricane Katrina that she began taking writing more serious and using it as a mental reprieve.
Truth Love is both a project of passion and a therapeutic release for Brown. Although her work is considered urban/street literature, Brown wants her books to be both entertaining and a personal, mental escape from whatever problems readers maybe going through at the time. Expect to read and see more novels from Brown in the future.
Truth Love is best described as an urban street drama with a spiritual twist. Brown is a loving wife and mother of two daughters, one son, and dedicates a lot of her down time speaking to young inner-city girls, who have experienced teen pregnancy, rape, and other personal issues, about finding their voice and developing self-esteem and the strength to live out their dreams.

Bienvenidos to my #ReviewStop for
 Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon!



Title: Eye Candy
Author: 
Jessica Lemmon
Series: 
Real Love #1
Publication Date: 
July 25, 2017

Don’t trust lust at first sight. One woman chooses reality over fantasy in this friends-to-lovers romance.

Jacqueline: As an adult woman—and the vice president of a marketing firm—I shouldn’t be waiting by my office window to ogle the mystery man who jogs by every morning at 11:45. Sure, he’s a gorgeous, perfect specimen of the human race, but I can’t bring myself to hit on a total stranger. However, my best friend–slash–colleague Vince Carson thinks I should do more than talk to the guy. In fact, he’s borderline obsessive about “getting me laid.” (His words.) But the more time we spend together, the more it’s clear: The one I’m falling for is Vince.

Vince: Jackie Butler’s got it bad for some pompous, over-pumped A-hole who struts his stuff past her window. That doesn’t bother me. I know she deserves nice things. What does bother me is that she friend-zoned me big-time last year, so I can’t ask her out myself. But what if I set her up with Mr. Steroids? Then, when he breaks her heart, I can swoop in and save her like the nice guy I am. Everything’s going according to plan . . . until we share a ridiculously epic kiss. And suddenly anything is possible.

#MyThoughts

This is my very first book by Jessica and it was completely amazing. And I know, covers are not the book but did you see this cover? It so sexy, I really love it. Anyway...

EYE CANDY is exactly what I needed, a book that may surprise you with every turn it takes. And it also has the friends-to-lovers characters. Moreover, you got both sides of their story which helps a lot when it comes to understanding why they say/do what they say/do. As you can see it has that something that may make an incredible reading.

Jacque seems to be the girl who knows what she wants, but who actually does not do or who does not want to accept it, which helps with the trama of the book. However, she has a kind-of outgoing persona which leads to take some decisions that may change her status regarding relationships --plus, she has not had the best of the experiences when it is about love and relationships so it makes it more interesting. And She is also a very appealing character when you get to know her. And then there is Vince, who if it was not for the synopsis I would not have seen him coming LOL. Okay, so he has decided that he wants to take the next step when it comes to his love life but who also has created an strange but fascinating plan to accomplish it. One that involves a certain someone who he thinks is not ready or who has not realized he is what she needs yet --according to him.

These characters are the perfect combination/couple for this type of book, and reading about the development of their relationship is what you may need because it is lovely and cute but it is also sexy and charming. And something I know for sure is that you will develop a feeling for the characters --good or bad. Because they lead you towards it. Overall, this is an incredible reading and is completely worthy. Highly recommended.

#ReleaseBlast | #Review: ROCK STAR by Stacey Kennedy + #Giveaway #Excerpt


Welcome to the #ReleaseBlast for
 Rock Star by Stacey Kennedy :)


Title: Rock Star
Author: 
Stacey Kennedy
Series: 
A Bad Boy Homecoming, #5
Publication Date: 
June 27, 2017
Publisher: 
Self-Published 

A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy.
Veterinarian, Rae Evans expects to attend a dreadful ten-year high school reunion. Instead, she’s confronted by a past she’s never gotten over. The love of her life, Travis Walker, has returned to Catfish Creek, and the now-famous rock star wants only three things: Her. Naked. And screaming his name.

Fresh off his last world tour, Travis has returned to town to get a dose of reality. With fame casting a superficial cloud over Travis’s life, he’s scrambling to stay afloat. He needs an anchor, and Rae is that for him. But as he finds himself, he’s determined to remind Rae of the heat that once burned between them.

Before they know it, their one hot night is three, and soon, just like ten years ago, Travis holds the strings to Rae’s heart. But Rae’s not that young girl who watched her high school sweetheart race off to become famous. She’s a woman who knows what she wants and realizes when a man needs her. She just has to decide if she should put the past on repeat, or walk away from it forever.

#Excerpt
She’d always been a pretty girl, but she’d grown into a blindingly beautiful and stunning woman. Her gown fit her like a glove. A gold filigree mask somehow made the creaminess of her skin appear richer. She wore her shoulder-length, brown hair in big waves framing her round face. 

Tonight, she didn’t look so fresh-faced and innocent. She looked sexy as hell, and just the sight of her again caused Travis’s cock to swell eagerly.

While he’d talked to her through email, text, and the occasional late-night, drunk phone call every birthday and Christmas over the last ten years, he hadn’t seen her. Not since that day on his parents’ porch. Sure, he’d kept an eye on her through the Catfish Creek Chronicle when they featured her for her charity work, and also on the website for the vet clinic she owned. But after he’d walked the path that led away from her, he’d never found his way back. Life got busy. New friends were found. Fame overtook him.

Now, he was…home.

#MyThoughts

To tell you the truth... I have not read any of the others books in this series. It is probably that I would read them due to how much I liked Rock Star. Anyway, Rock Star comes to be the fifth book in the 'A Bad Boy Homecoming' romance series by Stacey Kennedy. It has been released today so congratulations are in order, Stacey!! 

As in the other books --I infer--, RS tells us about a boy who returns to his beginnings. At least, this time he wants to go there, not because he miss the place but due he missing an specific someone. Travis and Rae used to have everything they need because they had each other. Sadly, it was not the right moment for them. Life split them up and now it brings them together. Both of them know this time may not be a forever, however, they will take advantage of whatever opportunity they have together. Rae knew what she wanted --and had it planned-- even before Travis left. She has been living the life she planned and there seems to be not regrets. On the other hand, Travis left the girl he loved in order to live his dreams, but it seems the life he has been living is not enough. For Travis, their high school reunion is the best opportunity he has to be with Rae again. Of course, he will have to persuade her first.
Before they know it, their one hot night is three, and soon, just like ten years ago, Travis holds the strings to Rae’s heart.
Rock Star's plot is about choosing to love again. This is a sweet, hot, cute, and fantastic second chance romance. I highly recommend it if you like rockstars, or second chances, or hot-rockstars romance, or just if you like romance. It is just amazing!

Sat Yes To The Scot Book Excerpt !!


THE SCOT SAYS I DO by Sabrina York

http://sabrinayork.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/SayYesToTheScot-2.jpg

Catherine Ross's world is turned upside down when her brother gambles away every penny they own. But to make matters worse? He’s lost everything to none other than Duncan Mackay, the rugged Scot who Catherine loved for years—but he never noticed her, and now she positively loathes him. But her brother’s in danger of going to Newgate, and the despicable Duncan has a plan– she can claim back the money and save her brother. If she marries him…

READ AN EXCERPT OF THE SCOT SAYS I DO

Duncan glanced at Peter who had dropped back down on the divan and covered his face with one arm. He was no use to either of them at this point. Besides, this business was between himself…and Catherine. He gently pressed her into the king’s chair, took one next to hers and scooted it around until he faced her. “You and Peter have no home now.”

“Not even the Wilds?”

“Not even the stables.” He tried to be as sympathetic as he could. This was difficult for her. Shattering. And it would only get worse. “For you, things are not so bad. You’re a lovely girl. You can marry well.” He ignored her snort. “But for Peter…” He let it hang there like a razor sharp icicle clinging to a roofline as a melt approached.

“But Peter?”

“He has other debts.”

“Oh no.”

“Small ones, but substantial enough for his creditors to ask for retribution.”

They both knew what that meant. Debtors’ prison. A truly nasty end for a feckless lad. But Duncan had the inclination to allow Peter to languish there—at least for a while—to teach the boy a lesson.

“Newgate would kill him,” Catherine whispered.

“It’s not all that bad.”

Her gaze snapped to him. “And how do you know?”

He lifted a brow. He had no intention of telling her that he’d visited and reprieved more than one foolish friend.

“Poor Peter.”

“He did bring this on himself. He gambles like a fiend.” A fiend who thinks he can never lose.

“Can’t you help him?”

Duncan swallowed an outraged laugh. “I believe I already have.”

“I mean, help him more?”

“Buy out <em>all</em> his debts? Return his wealth and property to him? Pat him on his head and charge him to go forth and risk it all again? What kind of fool do you think I am?”

“A heartless one.” She stood and whirled away, which gave him cause to follow.

But honestly, he was not the heartless one here.

When she spun back, he was right behind her and they were far too close. The tips of her breasts brushed against his chest and he nearly swallowed his tongue. She flinched as well, as though the touch had been like a bolt of lightning. She gazed up into his eyes, hers wide and damp. Her lips parted and her pink tongue dabbed out to wet them and his knees nearly failed him.

Damn she was so beautiful. So glorious. He wanted to kiss her now, ravish her. Claim her. He wanted—

“I cannot bear the thought of marrying one of my suitors,” she said, and he was brought back to the moment, his intent, with a powerful lurch.

“There may be a solution.”

She tipped up her delicate chin bravely. “And what might that be?”

So simple. So perfect.

“Marry me.”

Her jaw dropped and he fixated on the sight of her open mouth. If that was not a demand for a kiss, he did not know what was.

He pulled her into his arms, reveling in the warmth, the curves of her slight form, and lowered his head.

She tasted like heaven. Sweet bliss. Just like he remembered from that day when he’d pulled her from the loch and forced her to breathe again. Her scent infused him, enamored him, enraged a long-banked fire within him.

She would be his.

He would have her.

Finally.

Catherine Ross would be his bride, just as he’d dreamed of for so many years. Just as he’d fought and scrabbled and worked for. His life ambition had come to him and the moment was so sublime…

Until she pulled away and stared at him with an odd mixture of shock and fear limning her eyes.

And she hauled back her delicate fist.

And punched him in the jaw.

By the time he’d recovered from the shock of what he could only interpret as her refusal of his suit, she’d whirled away and flounced off to her chambers—God only knew where—in the bowels of the enormous mansion.

But this was only the first salvo in his campaign to win her.

#BlogTour | #Review: NORTH TO YOU by Tif Marcelo + #Giveaway + #Excerpt



Welcome to my new #RTS!
 North to You by Tif Marcelo



Title: North to You
Author: 
Tif Marcelo
Series: 
Journey to the Heart #1
Publication Date: 
June 5, 2017
Publisher: 
Entangled Bliss

In this warmhearted and charming debut from Tif Marcelo, a food truck chef and her long lost Army love clash when they cross paths in San Francisco.

Camille Marino has got a full plate. As the sole guardian of her eighteen-year-old sister and the head chef and owner of a food truck, she’s used to life being a juggling act. With food to cook, social media accounts to manage, and a little sister to look after, she doesn’t have time for much else.

That is, until Drew Bautista walks back into her life.

Drew is Camille’s former high school crush and he returns to San Francisco to repair his relationship with his father before he ships out for deployment. By helping his father renovate his failing Filipino restaurant, he hopes to win back his respect. But when sparks fly between Drew and Camille—his father’s major competition and sworn enemy—Drew is conflicted. Should he join his father in the war against her food truck? Or surrender to the woman who’s given him a second chance at love?

#Excerpt
Above the low hum of the traffic, the people, and the planes passing overhead, a bell chimes. Then two, then three. Soon, surround-sound church bells, signaling the start of the new day, sweep over the breadth of my view.

“Wow.” The music becomes the backdrop of the city I thought I knew. My eyes follow the path of Market Street and the twinkling outline of the Bay Bridge. It scans to the Transamerica Building, which cuts the ombré of the night sky down to the yellow of the city lights. Sights now enhanced, brought to greater depth and



“Right?” he whispers next to me.

“Beautiful.”

“She is definitely beautiful.”

My breath hitches at Drew’s statement. He leans against the barrier, his back to the city lights. His eyes are solely on me.

This man and I know nothing about each other as adults except for what we revealed in the last hour. He knows nothing of my dreams and hopes. I don’t understand the life he’s chosen. And yet I’m bound to him with leftover feelings that are so innocent and pure, feelings I’m not sure where to place now that they’ve been pulled from memories packed away.

One thing is sure. Right now is perfect.

I approach him, place my hands on his chest. 

He rests his fingers lightly on my waist. “Camille—”

I stop him with a kiss. Tonight has been crazy, magical, fuzzy, and weird, and I don’t want to think about consequences, my overloaded plate of responsibilities, of everything waiting for me down there, in the city below.
#MyThoughts

NORTH TO YOU is an amazing reading. It is so light and cute that it has been one of the best reading I have had during the last time. The romance is everywhere. Plus, this is an incredible second chance romance that deserves to be read by you all. And its plot is so good.

You can easily feel Cam and Drew's chemistry along the story. Cam is disposed to do anything to see her little's sister's dreams come true --even if it means to sacrifice what she wants more. However, life can surprise you in many ways. Drew knows what he has to do to "amend" his relationship with his dad. Yet, he is between a rock and a hard place when he has to make a decision regarding who is in future. Anyway, when Cam and Drew are together, it is like there is nothing else. I simply love it!!

Of course, you get a lot more by reading their story. You may get hungry while reading... if it affects you to talk about food --delicious food. Plus, there are a couple of characters towards you may or may not develop a feeling, good or bad. But do not draw conclusions before you get to the best part. Wait for it!

I completely recommend it if you like a cute, beautiful, and hot second chance romance with deserved HEA for its characters.
