Release Blitz & Review: My Rebound




Title: My Rebound
Series: On My Own #2
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 8, 2021


BLURB

A rebound isn’t supposed to last. Though, sometimes, fate has other ideas.

It wasn’t supposed to happen this way.
I started planning my future at the age of six. I knew the college I wanted, the career I needed, and the boy I would marry.

Only he wasn’t supposed to break up with me in such a spectacular fashion. Now, I’m tossing my planner and breaking my rules.

First up: Pacey Ziglar.

Too bad I fell for my rebound along the way

I never meant to say yes.

I know exactly what Mackenzie Thomas wants when she asks me out on a date. She won’t be my first no-strings-attached relationship, and if things work out the way we both want, she won’t be my last.

Yet the more I get to know her, the more I want her. But she’s not looking for me to be her forever.

And when the past comes back for both of us, I’m afraid forever might end far too soon.

This is the second book in the series about a group of men sharing a house together in college.  I really like Dillon and Elise's story in the first book.  That one ends on a doozy of cliffie for Mackenzie.  My Rebound picks up right after that event.

We meet Pacey as part of the roommates in the party house. He seems like a really nice guy.  As he tries to boost Mackenzie's spirits and just be her friend, he shows even more of his good heart. Over all the story was just a sweet read. Very little angst. Mackenzie and Pacey know each other but a good part of the book is them becoming even better friends. They really care for each other and pretty soon the rebound relationship is much more than that. 

Good addition to the series.  Looking forward to seeing the other two roommates meet their HEA as well.

Series: Royal Shifters #5
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Suspense
Release Date: June 8, 2021


BLURB

Feelings she can’t deny.
A bond impossible to ignore.

Haunted by pain of the past, Kami Grayson seeks to make the world a better place by joining the FBI. She thought being invited to join a secret branch of the bureau, known as the Circle of Justice, was the opportunity she had been waiting for. Instead, she uncovers a corrupt ring of dangerous shifters that will kill to keep their dealings hidden.

As a royal arctic, Colin Storm is loved by women and envied by male shifters. Of all the ladies who long for him, it’s Kami’s complete disinterest that fascinates him. Yet when he stumbles onto her shooting a man in a dark alley, the wolf within awakens with a ferocious need to protect her.

Drawn to Kami’s fiery strength, Colin vows to help her escape the clutches of the ruthless pack of shifters closing in. Still, Kami resists the undeniable connection between them. Will the pull of their bond be enough to convince her to let him stand beside her in the fight to come? Or will her reluctance lead to her facing the prowling darkness alone?

EXCERPT

Gasping, I jolt out of bed covered in sweat and grab my neck. I rush into the bathroom and turn on the light, scared at what I’ll see. He’s never bitten me before, but it felt so real. And what’s worse is who it came from. There’s no mark on my skin when I look in the mirror, but it could’ve already healed. Biting and sharing blood between mates is sacred. It opens a link between them, allowing them to hear each other’s thoughts. With it being just a dream, does it mean he’ll be able to listen to my thoughts now? I didn’t take his blood which means it’ll be a one-way connection. My mind will be open to his. Please don’t let it be so.
“Kami, are you okay?” Amelie asks, gently tapping on the bedroom door.
I turn on the faucet and splash cold water on my face. “I’m fine. Just a nightmare.”
“Ah, I see. You’re probably just nervous about today.”
She couldn’t be more wrong. Yes, I’m nervous about my training, but I’m terrified about my dream. It can’t be real. I won’t let it.
“Yeah, that’s probably it,” I lie. Looking into the bedroom, I see the alarm clock says it’s five in the morning. There’s no going back to sleep for me.
Amelie’s footsteps echo down the hallway toward her room. I dry off my face and walk back into my bedroom to sit on the bed. There are so many emotions fighting inside of me. My heart and my wolf tell me one thing, but my mind screams another. I can’t give in.
I see my cell on the nightstand, and I snatch it up. It’s early, but I have to talk to Tia. Heart racing, I click her name and hit send. It rings and rings, but she picks up, her voice groggy with sleep.
“Kami? Is something wrong?”
“Everything’s wrong,” I hiss, keeping my voice low. “Please tell me you have a magical spell to make people forget things.”
She yawns. “I do. Is it for you?”
Groaning, I close my eyes and sit back down on the bed. All I can see is his face. “Yes. I had another dream.”
“Okay,” she replies, sounding confused. “I thought you liked your dreams?”
“Not this one. I’m almost scared to fall asleep again.” I know I’ll dream about him.
“What the hell? Was it a nightmare?”
I laugh, but there’s no humor in it. “You could say that. Do you think you can help me? The last thing I want is to use your magic, but I really need you.”
“It’s fine, Kami. I know you’re not my friend because of my magic. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you. Tomorrow, I’ll gather up everything I need. I don’t have a spell to help with bad dreams, but there is a tonic I remember my mother giving me when I was little. It was an herbal tea I drank at night before going to bed. I’m sure I can find the herbs here.”
With a heavy sigh, I open my eyes and walk over to the window. “Thank you, Tia.”
The magic of the full moon isn’t as strong, but I can feel its pull. I don’t know what to do. My dreams all make sense now. There’s a reason why I could never see him. I don’t know why it took him biting me for the spell to break. Is it because there’s a full moon, and my magic is at its strongest? Either way, I’m screwed.
“What did you dream about, Kami?” Tia asks, her voice soft and full of concern. She knows I used to have nightmares about my time in captivity before I began having the mating dreams.
“My mate,” I say, barely getting the words out. “I finally got to see who he is.”
She gasps. “Seriously? Who is he?”
Looking out the window, it’s so dark I can see my reflection in the glass. “He’s the one wolf I loathe above all others. It figures he’d wind up being my mate.”
“Oh. My. God. What are you going to do?”
I look at my reflection and turn away from it. “I’m going to stay away from him.”
“Is that even possible? I thought once the mating signs started, it’s impossible to ignore them.”
Even now, my body still remembers my mate’s touch in my dreams. There’s no way Colin could be like that. I force the thoughts from my mind. “I refuse to give in to this, Tia. Colin and I don’t fit. We never will.” Colin Storm will not be my mate. I’ll fight against it with every fiber of my being.
“What if he realizes you’re his mate now too? It’s inevitable, Kami. He won’t let you go.”
Colin is relentless. I can’t even imagine what it’ll be like if he were to find out. The best thing is to stay away from him. “I’ll figure that out when the time comes.”



I loved Kami and Collin's story!  Collin is the last male royal wolf as far as all the packs know.  There may be a couple more in hiding. All the women want Colin but he seems to be intrigued with Kami's sass and determination. 

Kami keeps him at a distance until they figure out they are mates.  Then she really makes him work for it. Once they take the leap, they really do work smoothly together. They are a match made by the moon.  I can't wait to catch up with them again. I'm sure they will play a role in Zayne's story as well. 

Great series all around.  Loved seeing characters from the COJ series in this one!

How did an accomplished Southern businesswoman, wife, and mother end up living on California’s Central Coast, newly divorced, working for a stubborn winemaker, and wrestling with sudden psychic powers?

Megan Carpenter asks herself that same question nearly every day.

She’s working her way back to the business world and starting her own event-planning business, but fate keeps throwing Megan curveballs. Her ex has an unexpected new girlfriend, her telekinetic powers keep short-circuiting, and her self-control—at least when it comes to her boss, Nico Dusi—is slipping.

Thank goodness she has the two best friends in the world. With Katherine and Toni at her side, Megan is determined to keep her plans on track even when an unexpected theft at the winery threatens the new business she’s building.

Release Blitz: King's Country

 



Title: King's Country
Series: Oil Kings #4
Author: Marie Johnston
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 7, 2021




I’ve been the wicked witch of King’s Creek since I was eight years old, from my angry red hair down to my ball-busting boots. With a mean drunk for a daddy who left nothing but insults and unpaid bills in his wake, was there ever any other fate? Now his passing has left me one bad turn from losing my land to the neighbors my family’s been feuding with for generations.

So of course it’s Dawson King who comes to my rescue in the middle of a snowstorm. But I don’t care how good he looks in a pair of Wranglers, or how much he spoils my horse, or how great of a cook he is. The Kings already have everything—money, looks, and charm. Dawson’s not getting my heart too.

I’m living my dream, I admit it. I took over the family ranch from my dad and grew it into the envy of Montana. I have the best views, the best employees, and the respect of the entire town. The only thing I don’t have is someone to share my dream with. So when my neighbor breaks her leg and nearly freezes to death, I all but kidnap her back to my place to recover.

We grew up less than a mile apart, but we couldn’t be in more different places now. Bristol’s had nothing but pride for so long, it’s hard to get close to her—and I want to get very close. I don’t care if the whole town loves me, I’m only interested in earning the love of one woman. But for a guy who’s got the world at his feet, Bristol’s heart might be out of my reach.

EXCERPT

I curled my hand around hers. “I got what I wanted tonight.” I soothed the flash of hurt in her eyes with a kiss. “This isn’t quid pro quo. I’ve been wanting to hold you for so long. I’m fine. Just like this.”
“You’re fine?” She couldn’t sound like she believed me less.
“I have a lot of plans for us, Bristol. Don’t get me wrong. I’m a guy and you’re my sexy neighbor.”
“I didn’t see a King calling me that.”
“You’re hot as fuck. I’ll prove it as often as you want me to. But tonight, I’d like to stay here, like this.”
“We’re still dressed.”
I leaned up and pulled back the covers. She wiggled around until she was under them. I stood and waited. She had to be sure.
She pulled back the other side and my smile grew wide. Yes.
By the time I shut the light off in the living room and got back to the side of the bed, she’d tugged off her shirt and put my old one on and wriggled out of her pants. “There. That’s better.” She eyed my chest. “Feel free to do the same.”
“Aw, honey, if I start taking stuff off, I don’t know if I’ll quit.” I dropped my pants. My shirt hung over the worst of my obnoxious erection.
I slid between the cool sheets until I was close enough to wrap her in my arms. “Night, Bristol.”
“Night, Dawson.”
