Blog Tour: Uncork My Love by Rich Amooi*


'A sweet romantic comedy set in beautiful Napa Valley!

Ivy needs a miracle and a drink—not necessarily in that order. With a struggling winery, the only hope of keeping her dream alive is snagging a gold medal at the annual wine competition. She’s determined to win, but she can do it without the help of Ted Jacobs, aka Mr. Know-it-All.
Ted wants to catch lightning in a bottle and create the world’s greatest wine, but he’s smart enough to know he can’t do it alone. When he heads to Napa to keep his grandma from ending up in jail (don’t ask), he meets Ivy. She’s as complex and intoxicating as his award-winning cabernet, but as stubborn as the mule next door when she stomps on his offer to collaborate.
Ted knows it’s risky to mix business with pleasure, but if Ivy would only listen, they might just be the toast of the town.'

This is the story of Ted and Ivy and is played out over 25 Chapters, that will quickly disappear as you eat up this RomCom. The book jumps straight into the story which is intriguing and funny. Ted is a brilliant character who really knows his wine. While Ivy is trying to run her Vineyard without asking for help.

What makes this book a brilliant RomCom is that all the funny moments are so relatable that the readers can see themselves in the situations. This aspect of realness really takes plan funny moments to some serious LOL moments. 

This book is completely addictive to it's readers, the story will have them continuing to turn the page to find out what happens next and find out whether Ivy and Ted can resolve things between themselves. The interactions between these two character really are very witty. 

Although the book is filled with funny moments, it still manages to be romantic and have some very soppy romantic moments that readers will love. This romantic side will also help keeps readers addicted to this story until readers have finished the entire story. 

Let's tell you a little bit about the Author Rich Amooi, he is the Amazon umber 1 Bestselling author of 15 romantic comedies including It's Not PMS, It's You, Dying to Meet You, There's something about a cowboy and Madam Love, Actually. A former Radio personality and DJ who now writes romantic comedies full time in San Diego. Rich believes in public displays of affection, silliness, infinte possibilities, donuts, gratitude, laughter and happily ever after. He is happily married to a kiss monster imported from Spain.

Overall I completely adored this book and it was further proof that Rich Amoii really is the King of RomCom. Though readers beware as soon as you have experienced one of Rich Amoii's books you will keep coming back for more. You can get your copy HERE

Blog Tour: Dating the It Guy by Krysten Lindsay Hager*

'Emme starts dating a popular high school student who happens to be from a famous political family. It seems like everyone at school either wants to be Brendon Agretti or date him. Emme feels out of her comfort zone in Brendon's world and it doesn't help that his picture-perfect ex seems determined to get back into his life, along with every other girl who wants to be the future Mrs. Agretti. Emme is already conflicted due to the fact her last boyfriend dumped her and her whole world is off kilter with her grandparents' health issues. Life suddenly seems easier pushing Brendon away and relying o nher crystals and horoscopes to guide her. Emme soon starts to realize she needs to focus less on the stars and more on her senses. Can Emme get over her insecurities and make her relationship work? Life sure is complicated when you're dating the it guy.'

This is the story of Emme and Brendon which is told over the course of 30 Chapters. This is a young adult novel, which was quite refreshing for this reader as I haven't read a YA novel in a while. This is the perfect book if your love of YA novels needs re igniting. 

One of the things that we brilliant about this book is that it really does start at the beginning. It starts with Emme and Brendons meet cute, which really is quite cute and realistic. Throughout the book the reader gets to watch as their relationship grows and unfolds. 

This book is one that was definitely incredibly hard to put down. I was invested in this story to the point that the emotions got involved. So warning to anyone looking to get this book, make sure you have the tissues at the ready. 

This story also shows the real relationship these two have and that there really is no quick fix when it comes to relationships. Also it enforces the fact the communication is key. Now I should warn you that the book does deal with grandparents who are not well, so readers will need to take this into account.

Now let me tell you about the Author Krysten Lindsay Hager, who writes about friendship, self-esteem, fitting in, frenemies, crushes, fame, first loves and values. Author of the young adult Cecily Taylor Series, the young adult Star Series, Dating the It Guy and the preteen Landry's True Colors Series. Her first novel, True Colors, won the Readers Favorite award for best preteen book and the Dayton Book Expo Bestseller Award for children/teens. Her book Competing with the Star is a Readers' Favorite Book Award Finalist. Best Friends ... Forever? is a 2019 Readers' Favorite Silver Medal Winner in the Children- Preteen genre. Landry in Like is a Literary Classics Gold Medal recipient and a 2020 Readers' Favorite Bronze Medal Winner.

Overall I was completely obsessed with this story from the moment I started until I finished. This book has left me wanting more from this author and re ignited my love of YA novels. You can get your copy HERE

Blog tour: Project Kaitlyn by Grayson Avery*

'Sweet Water, we have a project....

Meet Kaitlyn Colby, a clumsy, inappropriate blurter with self-esteem issues, but also quite handy with an axe. She's certainly no superhero, but she fights the battles of a single mom with sweet snarkasm. Between work and pining for and co-parenting with her man-child ex (is there any other kind?), Kaitlyn has no time to find that special someone. And if she did, would he really want her anyway? Kaitlyn's sister and friends (The Sweet Water Circle) say yes, so following a typical Kaitlyn slip up, The Circle intervenes to force her out of the funk that she fell into following her unwanted divorce.

When Kaitlyn makes a decision to pursue her advertising career over love, she tumbles (like no tumble you've ever seen…or heard) into the life of hunky, bay breeze-drinking Hunter Dixon, an ad exec who is intrigued enough by Kaitlyn that he hires her firm to revive a struggling project, much like herself.

Can Kaitlyn become the woman she needs to be to land the man of her dreams? Maybe. Maybe not. But you'll laugh out loud as she tries. There's no doubt you'll be rooting for the lovable, hilarious, and relatable Kaitlyn. And you'll probably love her friends, too, which is good, because their stories are ready to be told in the Sweet Water Circle series!'

This is the first book in the brand new Sweet Water Circle Series, and is all about Kaitlyn and Hunter. Their story is told over the course of 32 Chapters. The story starts off strong immediately getting the reader intrigued, leaving them wanting to continue reading. 

This story in general is very easy to get stuck into, not only does the interactions between Hunter and Kaitlyn keep the reader intrigued in there ongoing relationship. You also have the interactions between Kaitlyn and her friends also known as the Sweet Water Circle group. These interactions not only keep the reader interested but also gets them intrigued about Kaitlyn's friends. 

Once the reader gets stuck into this story and absorbed into Kaitlyn's life they will have a hard time putting it down. Between the character interactions and the general plot there is nothing they wont love. The whole book keeps the readers on there toes. 

Now let me tell you about the Author, Grayson Avery who wrote The Sweet Water Circle Series. A romantic comedy series that focuses on childhood friends in their 30s and 40s as the help each other navigate the stormy waters of dating, marriage, divorce and a whole lot of inappropriate, naughty and downright hysterical situations. 

Overall this book was amazing and really got me invested in the Sweet Water Circle group. I was so happy to then discover that the 2nd book all about Kaitlyn's sister Jenn is out in April. Everything about this book I adored including the ending, which kept me on my toes. You can get your copy HERE

Blog tour: The First Man by Alex Kelly*


Do you want to know what it means to live like me? It means being forced not to look at him, not to touch him, not to be left alone in the same room as him. Not to seek him out. Not to want him. Not to love him. Do you know how it feels to spend your entire life pretending to be someone else? Do you know what it’s like to love someone who doesn’t want to be loved?
I’ll tell you how it feels. It feels as if you’re living in constant torment: you know which path you should follow, but you also know that, if you follow that path, you can never turn back. And I can’t do that to him. Every day I come back, because I know that he’s waiting for me.
Every day I promise him that he will never have to live without me.

Do you know what it means to live like me? It means being forced not to touch him, not to kiss him, not to be able to leave the room while he’s still in it. Not to breathe him in, not to lust after him. Not to love him. Do you know how it feels to spend your entire life pretending to be someone else? Do you know what it’s like to love the only person you’re not allowed to love?
I’ll tell you how it works. You can’t seem to feel anything other than him; when you walk away, you know that you’re turning your back on the only thing that’s good in your life.
Yet you still walk away. Every day I leave, knowing that he will be standing there, watching.
Every day I ask him to promise me that I will never have to live without him.'

This is the story of Shane & Andy, which consists of 75 Chapters and is a M&M romance. It is the second in the 'From Connemara With Love' series. This story is intriguing from the story and is a brilliant friends to lovers series full of character interactions. These character interactions are mixed in the respect that some are between family while others are between friends. 

One of the main themes I see in this book is secret love and being true to who you are. Throughout the book we are given both Shane & Andy's point of view on present events as well as how it all began in the past. The best thing about going to the past is not only does the reader discover how they became to be who they are but also because it switches point of view the reader is given a chance to see how they both really feel. 

The only thing that can be said about the character interaction is that it is on point. The author gives you just enough information about the different characters so they do not take away from the main two but also it's enough for the readers to be left wanting to know more about these characters. 

Let me tell you about the Author Alex Kelly, who writes uplifting, emotional and heartwarming romantic fiction and family saga. She is a bibliophile, a Yogi, a lover of English Literature and a baking enthusiast. Alex was born in Italy but now lives in Ireland with her husband their two children and a cat named Oscar. 

Overall I enjoyed this book immensely, it left me with the need to not only read the first book within this series but hope that this will not be the last one. Once I started this book I found myself unable to put it down, to the point that after I woke up the following morning the first thing I did was to continue reading. You can get your copy HERE

Review: Flirting with Forever by Lasairiona E. McMaster*


'He’s got the girl of his dreams; he’s playing the game as captain of the team, and he’s working on getting the graduation gown. The finish line is in sight. All Jeremy has to do is stay focused, work hard, and keep pushing. He has finally gotten his life together, and he’s ready to rock this adulting thing.
Or at least he was.
Things unravel quicker than you can say ‘pass the puck’ when Chelsea’s ex, Johnny, moves to Alabama to play for the Chargers. Jeremy’s Chargers.
On thin ice with his girl, his team and his degree. Jeremy wonders… What if love really isn’t enough?'

I can't explain how excited I was when I was offered this book. This is the third and final book in the Jeremy Lewis series and what a book it is. This final installment about Chelsea and Jeremy consists of 27 Chapters, which seems long but when you are reading it. However readers will soon realize that it goes by too quickly. 

Just like the other two books in this series, this one is as addicting as ever. From the very beginning until the very last word. Once I was hooked I didn't put this book down until I had read every single word. One of the great things about this book is it really catches the reader up with how the second book ended as well as the missing time right at the get go. Meaning no matter how much time has past since reading the second book the reader will know what is going on. 

The book is filled with all kind of moments both intense and giggle worthy. Also the writer somehow manages to swap between the two so flawlessly that readers will be baffled that they have gone from some intense moments to then giggling out load like a child.  

There is something I feel I need to warn all future readers about so they are need aware, which is to make sure there are some tissues near by. Not saying that everyone will end up in tears but if you have a habit of getting so into books that your emotions get involved than tears can be expected. Now I am not going to say whether they are happy or sad tears, I will leave that for you guys to find out.

Now let me tell you a little bit about the Author Lasairiona McMaster, she writes sassy, classy and badassy women with strong, yet vulnerable men. She openly deals with mental health issues and challenges the readers expectations. She often explores tough-to-handle topics and 'taboos' and books with a whole lotta heart. She can either be found baking sweet treats in her kitchen while singing at the top of her lungs, or enjoying a gin and lemonade by the Irish Sea. When she is 'home' in Texas she can be found at Chuys eating her body weight in chips and queso, washing it down with a margarite swirl, that's if she isn't eating freshly popped popcorn while buying things she doesn't need in Target.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the character interactions are as on point as you will expect for this author. Not only that but it will leave the reader feeling all the feels and wanting more from the Author. This readers has yet to read AJ's story, however now that I have finished this series, I am more eager than ever to do so. You can get your copy HERE.

Blog Tour: Mr Right Across The Street by Kathryn Freeman*

'Mia Abbott’s move to Manchester was supposed to give her time and space from all the disastrous romantic choices she’s made in her past. But then the hot guy who lives opposite – the one who works out every day at exactly 10 a.m., not that Mia has noticed thank-you-very-much – starts leaving notes in his window…for her.

Bar owner Luke Doyle has his own issues to deal with but as he shows Mia the sights of her new city he also shows her what real romance looks like for the first time. And when he cooks up a signature cocktail in her honour, she realises that the man behind the bar is even more enticing than any of his creations. And once she’s had a taste she knows it will never be enough!'

This is the story of Mia and Luke, which is told over 38 Chapters as well as an Epilogue. This story is brilliant and really makes the reader wish that they had their very own Luke, to view just outside their own window. 

From the very moment the story starts, it grips the reader making them want to know more. It is full of twists that some the reader will see coming and some will take them by surprise. Though make no mistake this is not your average love story, it is completely delightful but the twists add a new level.

Throughout the book, readers get to view the situation from both Mia and Luke's point of view as it does a very clear switch. These switches are brilliant when a one of the twists happen. In true RomCom style this book will also leave the reader giggling with one of the many giggle inducing moments. 

Now let's talk about the Author, Kathryn Freeman is a former Pharmacist, now medical writer who also writes Romance. She can go from a racing heart due to a medical condition to the cause being a hunky hero. She lives with her husband and two teenage boys. Her husband may not be the most  romantic man around valentines day but his unstinting support about her career change proves love isn't just about Hearts and Flowers and heroes come in many disguises. 

Overall this is a brilliant book and a fantastic addition to this series. Kathryn has a way of writing romantic comedies that draw the reader in to the point that they don't want to put the book down until they have finished it. Every book in this series is absolutely brilliant and this one is no different. This is one Author you guys need to check out. You can get your copy HERE

Blog Tour: Our Little Secret by Rachael Stewart*

'A little secret sexy fun

Under the Tuscan sun!

It's her best mate’s wedding week – and Faye Davenport is celebrating with a skinny dip under the Tuscan moon. Except she's not alone. The sexy Italian dish is Rafael Perez – her mate’s off-limits older brother. But now it's too late. This illicit, irresistible fire is already out of control…'

This is the steamy and brilliant story of Faye and Rafael, which is told over 14 Chapters as well as an Epilogue. Although the story is certainly wrapped up in this length it seems short to the reader. This may be because of how superbly it is written or because readers just can't get enough.

One thing to know is that the way Rafael is described really does make him every girls hot sexy Italian dream man. This quality certainly adds to the fact that the book will leave readers feeling hot under the collar from the moment these characters meet. There is instant chemistry from the moment these two meet and how they meet is simply amazing. 

This book is quite addicting from the moment you begin, to the point that it becomes very hard for the reader to put down. The point of view changes quite clearly throughout the book and leaves the reader with the full picture from the moment these two meet right up to the end. 

So I am unable to write a review about this book without mentioned what I like to call the 'sexy scenes'. Those bits of the book that absolutely make the reader want to bite their lip. In this story these scenes can be described as delicious not only to read but to imagine. They are spread throughout the book and told in such detail that readers will absolutely enjoy them. 

So let me tell you about the Author Rachael Stewart, she adores conjuring up stories for both Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press. The books vary from heart-warmingly romantic to wildly erotic. Rachael is living her own dream of being a full time writer, even though her degree was in Business Studies and she spent many years in the corporate world. Originally from Wales, Rachael now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children. When she isn't wrapped up in her children, you can find her glued to her laptop or enjoying the great outdoors seeking inspiration. 

Overall this book is too good to put into words. When I wasn't reading this book I was thinking about it. It completely captivated me and I was utterly addicted by chapter 2. Rachael has a way of writing that truly captivates her audience. From the sexy scenes to the conversations and character interactions. Everything in this book is captivating for the reader and will make them love it more. This is one seriously seductive story! You can get your copy HERE

Blog Tour: Flying Duo by Zoe May*

'Can true love go the distance?

London lawyer Rachel Watson has wound up in an Indian ashram with hippy heartthrob lover, Seb.

A high-achiever, Rachel has always lived life according to her Life List, ticking off goals along the way. But now that she's in India, Rachel is going with the flow, or at least trying to...

Rachel's visa is running out and it's time to decide whether her relationship with Seb is a holiday romance or built to last.

The pair embark on a trip to Nepal for an Everest base camp trek, but will their relationship survive this gruelling expedition or is it time to part ways?'

This is the story of Seb and Rachel, part two and is told over 24 chapters. My review of how this couple started out can be found here. Now although this is the sequel it does not mean that you need to read the first one although I highly recommend you do.

Within the first few chapters of this book and throughout this book the caught up or reminded about what happened within the first book. This is brilliant as the book picks up nearly from where the first one ends. So readers won't feel like they have missed anything when they begin this book.

One thing readers need to beware of is that this book is addicting to the point that it would be very easy to read this book in one sitting. It is filled with some giggle worthy moments, that I am unsure whether the Author meant to put them in but this reader certainly giggled. All of these details really draw the reader in and add to the addicting factor. 

The author added so much detail in this book that really makes the reader able to envision the locations, as well as the events taking place. This reader certainly finished this book feeling like there was another place to be added to the places I want to visit list. 

Now let me tell you a little bit about the Author Zoe May, who lives in southeast London writing romantic comedies. Since she was a teenager she dreamt of being a novelist. Before her debut novel (Perfect Match) came out, Zoe worked in journalism and copywriting. Zoe chose to write a novel about dating, after experiencing the London dating scene first hand and seeing its endless supply of weird and wonderful material. When she isn't writing you can find Zoe walking her dog, painting and reading. She adores animals, meaning that if she isn't taking a picture of a vegan meal you can find her tweeting about the dairy industry. Zoe is half Greek/ half Irish and can whip up a mean baklava. After spending several years working as a fashion copywriter, Zoe has an encyclopedia knowledge of handbags to the point that she could win Mastermind if it was her specialist subject. Zoe also has a thing for India, swimming, horror films, hip hop and Radiohead. 

Overall this book is simply the best way to round up this duo of books. Although readers will no doubt love the ending as it will leave them smiling. It will also leave them a little sad that the journey Seb and Rachel have been on has come to an end. This is another amazing book by a seriously brilliant Author. You can get your copy HERE

Until Next Time
