Release Blitz! Last Call by Kim Deister

Title: Last Call
Author: Kim Deister
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 17, 2019

When Sparrow Greenlee meets Nix Burkholder, it is definitely not love at first sight. It doesn't matter how chiseled his jaw is, how his shirt stretches over his pecs, how great he looks in a hockey uniform. The man has an attitude that makes her want to scream and send a slapshot into his pads. The only redeeming thing about him is his daughter, Harley, a spunky six-year-old with only one thing on her mind... to find her daddy a girlfriend. And she has set her eyes on Sparrow.
“If you love your hot, hockey playing, cop, single dads with an overload of adorable Last Call is the book for you!” - Red Hatter Book Blog
“I absolutely LOVED this book. This is the first time I have read any of Kim Deister’s books and you better believe I am now her newest book stalker.” - Ani (Goodreads)
“This is a sweet romance that had tons of feelings and left you with a HEA and a smile on my face.” - Cindy Fong (Goodreads)

I was born and raised in a tiny town in the wilds of northern New York, a pretty, little college town called Potsdam. I grew up in a family of lawyers and teachers and bucked all the traditions. Before becoming a writer, I spent a lot of years wearing combat boots in the US Army. I spent most of my time in boots working as a Signals Intelligence Analyst (no jokes!) and a linguist. I also worked as a tech writer, an entirely different kind of writing, for Corning Glass Works. Now, I’m an Army wife and a mom to four sons.  Over the years, our Army life has taken us all over the place and I have been lucky enough to work and live in some pretty amazing places.  Now we live in Hawaii, just minutes from the beach!
I am a writer thoroughly in love with words. Reading them, writing them... I love that words can take you outside of your world and let the unimaginable become imaginable. When I’m not writing or lounging on the beach, I’m probably somewhere with my nose in a book.

Being dragged into someone else’s messy, high-profile divorce is not what she needs. Especially if that someone else is Justice Cross, the frontman of the popular rock band The Deviant. Born into a family of rock royalty, Justice lives his life fast and easy. When he comes across Hazel while at a local bar, his gallant attempt to get her home safely takes a complicated turn. A PR nightmare forcing Justice and Hazel to spend time together triggers unexpected and intense feelings between the two.

New Review! Caged Collection Sixth Street Bands Box Set by Jayne Frost 5 Cranky Stars

Caged Collection Sixth Street Bands Box SetCaged Collection Sixth Street Bands Box Set by Jayne Frost
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars

This is the whole series of the Caged Rockers and how their lives are turned upside down by one accident. Each story is unique and perfectly written, but when you read them back to back, you see how well their lives are intertwined with one another.

What really stood out to me was the uniqueness to each story. You would think that the formula would be the same, but Frost made sure that each story was different. It all starts with Cameron and Lily’s story and ends with Logan and Tori’s story. I felt a connection with each character and their story. Especially Anna and Sean’s story. That one made me cry and I did want to slap both of them upside their heads for not listening to one another.

If you love rockers, you will love this series. Jayne Frost does not disappoint with her series. I will definitely recommend this story to others.

New Review! Once Upon A (Stolen) Time by Samreen Ahsan 5 Cranky Stars

Once Upon A [Stolen] TimeOnce Upon A [Stolen] Time by Samreen Ahsan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars

Myra Farrow is obsessed with castles, and there is one in particular that she feels a connection too. So after Steve Bernard gets her to go with him to the Castle Hue, Myra’s is overwhelmed when dark powers awaken. Myra is the only one who can see into a mirror, she sees the torture that Edward Hue goes through.

This book was fantastical. I was drawn in from the start. Myra was a character that I could relate to, and when her parents had setup a meeting between her and Steve, you kinda felt bad for them. It felt like they were just pawns in their parent’s game of love connection. When Myra goes to Castle Hue for the first time, that’s where the story really blossoms. She sees the torment that Edward goes through, and she feels this overwhelming connection to him.

I loved how the author would do the flashback scenes, they were perfectly done. The story was perfectly written, although that ending left me wanting more. I will definitely recommend this book to others.

New Review! The Devil (The Devils Playground #1) by Ashley Jade 5 Cranky Stars

The Devil (Devil's Playground, #1)The Devil by Ashley Jade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars

This is one dark romance that everyone needs to read. Eden has a thing for Cain, who is forbidden to her. Damien comes into play with his history of Cain and how much he wants to take him down and ruin him. Anyone who stands in his way will be collateral damage.

This book was amazing from start to finish. The storyline was complex, and the characters were intricately intertwined with one another. Literally! Ashley Jade made a believer out of me when it comes to dark romances. I wish that you could give a book a million stars, because this one deserves it.

This story isn’t for the faint of heart. She even warns you of that going in. However, if you give the story a chance, you might find yourself in love with Damien and Cain. I will definitely recommend this story to others.

New Review! For Her (The Girl I Loved Duet #10 by Penny Wylder 5 Cranky Stars

For Her (The Girl I Loved Duet Book 1)For Her by Penny Wylder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars

Penny Wilder writes of a love so strong you can feel it with each word. All of the emotions, good and bad, deep into your system with every page turned.

Amber is a character that I connected with right from the start. Shes bubbly and headstrong and honest. She has goals and she's willing to give her all to achieve them even if it ends up hurting her.

Peter's start in life wasn't the best but he's determined to push through. He is a fighter and he knows what he wants. Peter's heart is full of love for the one girl he can't seem to have. The one who threw him away.

This story jumps from the past to the present which usually bugs me, but Penny Wilder did this in the best way possible. I found myself more drawn into the lives of Amber and Peter. Each page made me crave more. This book is my first top read of 2019 and rivals my top ten for 2018. It's just that good. So grab some tissues and buy this book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book has the background theme of Beer League Ice Hockey - Sweetser Stoats - average age 45. Sparrow Greenlea, an English high school teacher, was one of the youngest on the team. Her mother loved animals, she had two brothers one called Fox and the other Colt. Her BFF Rowan who was married to Griff, took an active interest in Sparrow's 'relationship' life, especially the lack of it. When a new man comes to town and takes over the goalie position, Rowan was determined to make this into something, a romance, a fling anything. Sparrow was not interested as a few years earlier she had her heart broken by then boyfriend Thorn who just decided to go and work in Japan with no invite for her.

Anyway Nix, short for Phoenix, had his own broken heart with a brick wall built round it. He had a six year old daughter named Harley, who his wife abandoned outside their house while she moved out taking most of the furniture etc with her. This is where Nix found the upset Harley a couple of hours later. He moved to Sweetser for a new start with his daughter and his wife signed papers to relinquish all rights to Harley. Sparrow tried to welcome Nix but he shunned all approaches from her. It was when Thorn returned and turned up at her parent's Thanksgiving meal that things started to change. Thorn left the house being threatened by Sparrow's two brothers.

While she was home with her Newfoundland dog Mags, that Mags made her aware there was somebody at the door. By the time she got there it flew open and there stood a drunk Thorn, She didn't want to aggravate him so went along with what he asked until he assumed they would be taking up where they left off, then she lost her cool and Thorn turned violent. The last thing she remembers is everything went dark and when she started to come to she recognised the voice of Nix, she realised that he was a cop. Jumping ahead in the book where there was a lot of misunderstanding and hot and cold receptions by Nix. That Sparrow just accepted friendship which Nix agreed with. Sparrow had got very close to Harley. One day when Sparrow wasn't having Harley, Nix turned up in a state not knowing where Harley was. This then turned into a Search & Rescue operation. Sparrow & Mags had just got their S&R badges.

The search went on for hours in heavy snow in woodland. Long story short, no spoilers!!!! This was the night that Nix world nearly came to an end and when he realised that he had fallen for Sparrow. He walked into a cavern and saw Sparrow and Harley both being threatened. He nearly lost them both it still wasn't an easy road for the pair of them though.......
