Mr. Taken (Mystery Christmas #3) Release Tour +Giveaway +Review


Mr. Taken
by Danica Winters
Series: Mystery Christmas, #3
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Paperback Release Date: October 17, 2017
Digital Release Date: November 1, 2017


In Mystery, Montana, a white-hot hunk fights fire with passion… 

Though he's ridiculously handsome and notoriously funny, it's Colter Fitzgerald's firefighting skills that are most needed by Whitney Barstow—at first. She's been traumatized by fire and terrified that the arsonist sabotaging Dunrovin Ranch is a madman from her past. She's also fearful that harm will come to any man she loves, so denies her attraction to Colter. Then why is she jealous of another woman's hands all over him?

On the eve of the ranch's Christmas festival, Colter wants no one but Whitney, body, soul and darkest secrets. But there's still an arsonist to stop…before what makes the season bright is Dunrovin in flames.

 
This is the third book in this series and they need to be read in order. Colter Fitzgerald is firefighter and known as the funny brother. He has wanted the new girl at his parent’s ranch since he first saw her but she doesn’t want anything to do with him. Whitney worries that the things that have been happening at the ranch maybe because of her. She worries that a man from her past may have found her. He set her parent’s barn on fire with her in it. She worries that the people she cares about may be hurt because of her. She is tired of running and not living. She keeps pushing Colter away even though she wants her so badly. Things begin to change when Colter helps her save a dog that belongs to one of the guests. And oddly enough a woman from Colter’s past helps give them the push to move forward. Whitney can’t understand the jealousy she feels when she sees a woman with her hands all of Colter. Colter, Whitney, and Wyatt need to investigate the new things that have been happening at the ranch. Someone wants to hurt the Fitzgerald family and they need to find out who. Colter wants Whitney so badly but he knows there are things from her past and that he needs her to get to open up to him if they ever have a chance at something. He needs to prove that he is dependable and that he will protect and care for her.  Whitney fears her past coming back and hurting Colter. But she is learning that she hasn’t been living and that Colter makes her want to live and be with him. Will they find out who is trying to hurt their family before it’s too late? I love all these characters so much. I can’t wait for the next book to see what happens to them next. Congrats Danica on another fantastic book.

Rewrite Release Blitz +Giveaway


Title: Rewrite
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 19, 2017

 

Blurb 
Once upon a time, a girl loved a boy and he loved her back. They lived happily ever after.

But our story was never that simple.

I loved Josh with all I had, right until the day he left. Now, all these years later, he was back—and wanting me the way I’d always longed for him. Except now, I belonged to someone else. Someone who never left me the way Josh had. I figured that was the end of our story. I couldn’t alter the past.

I didn’t want to rewrite my future.

Brianna was always more than my best friend. She was the shining light in my black hole of an existence, and I loved her with every cell and bone in my body. I wasn’t good enough for her, though—more the villain than the hero in our fairy tale. When I had to leave, I vowed to come back a better man—for her. But when I finally did return, she wasn’t waiting for me anymore. She had someone new, her very own Prince Charming. Did that mean our story was over? I couldn't change our past.

It was time to rewrite our ending.

Excerpt
“This place is amazing, Josh.”
My chest swelled with pride as Brianna’s widened eyes darted around the shop. Maybe it wasn’t really my place, but Uncle Billy trusted me enough to run it on my own. I hired the employees, handled the books, and met with customers. He depended on me instead of waiting for me to fuck up. The local troublemaker came back and made good, but that wasn’t such an easy sell for everyone. Good thing I didn’t give a shit about everyone. The only opinion that ever mattered stood in front of me, beaming with pride.
My mouth split in a wide grin. “Thanks. It’s getting there. Hoping things pick up a little after the holidays. No one wants a new bike when there’s an inch of ice on the ground.” I laughed until Brianna’s face fell.
“Can I ask you something?” She slid into the chair in my office as her lips pursed.
“Of course.” I leaned my hip against the edge of my desk and crossed my arms. “What’s up, Cupcake?”
“Did . . . did you really have a new client in Manhattan last week, when you drove me to work?”
I took in a deep breath and exhaled slowly. “Why would you ask that?”
“Scott and I—” She shook her head and waved her hand. “It’s nothing. Don’t mind me.”
“No.” I nudged her ankle with my foot. “Let me guess. Scott isn’t too happy about me hanging around so much.” I raised an eyebrow.
Brianna reluctantly nodded. “It’s a guy thing, I guess.” She chuckled to herself. “They get territorial if someone else tries to play with their toys.” She laughed until she realized what she said and then covered her mouth with her eyes huge. She was so fucking cute I couldn’t stand it. “I didn’t mean play, I meant . . .” She dropped her head into her hands, and I couldn’t hold in a laugh anymore.
“C’mon, Bri. I’m dying to know.” I peeled her fingers away from her face and crouched in front of her. “What did you mean? Scott thinks I want to play with you? Don’t tell him about the GI Joe and Barbie castle we made when we were kids. He’ll flip the fuck out.” Her cheeks flushed as she nudged my shoulder.
I caught her hand and held it in both of mine. As our gazes locked, laughter stopped. There was no way in hell what I was feeling was only one-sided. I doubted it ever was.
We didn’t talk about it, but I remembered every moment of that night at my apartment. Brianna rushing over to take care of me, the tortured look on her face when I asked her to get into bed with me. It wasn’t my finest hour, but I needed her. My soul cried out for her that night and she came, like she always did. She may have ignored my wimpy confession, but when she said she loved me, I knew she didn’t mean as only her best friend.
“Josh,” Brianna pleaded on a whisper. “Don’t, please.”
“Don’t please what, Bri?” Feeling brazen, I tucked a piece of hair behind her ear and cupped her cheek. I ran my thumb along the delicate curve of her jaw. Her eyes fluttered, urging me on. “Don’t touch you?” I let my finger drift over her full bottom lip. “Don’t kiss you?” I whispered with a husky rasp. Our faces were so close, our lips brushed. Brianna’s mouth parted, and I uttered a curse under my breath. We were so damn close. All we had to do was close that distance. Her hand drifted up my shoulder and clutched the back of my neck.
“Josh,” Brianna sighed as she rested her forehead against mine. “We . . . We can’t.” Her hand drifted down my jaw. Her hooded eyes and flushed cheeks disagreed with the words sputtering from her mouth. I caught her hand and pressed a soft kiss to her palm. It trembled as she took in a quick gasp.
“Yes, we can, Bri,” I whispered as I leaned in. “You’re so damn beautiful.” Shit, I almost tasted her. She stilled as I cupped her neck and inched closer.

Dear Captor,

Do you find pleasure in my tortured screams?
My darkened cell is my own living nightmare.
Why do you continue to play this game? Why don’t you just kill me?
You’ve almost broken me all over again—but I’ve held firm. I’ve pushed through the pain you’ve inflicted. And now I’m seeing a side of you I never knew could exist. A side I connect with. A side I could grow to like.
Your touch on my skin . . . it ignites a fire within.
Only time will tell what will come of it.

With love,
Elenore.

In Too Deep (Doing Bad Things #2) Release Day +Review



I did a bad thing.

I did a really bad thing.

I’m not a bad person, I swear. I just made a few mistakes.

Mistake number one was agreeing to rent my hotel out to an insufferable a**hole, named Aden Smith­.

Mistake number two was ignoring his threats to sue me when he handed over a list of items he deemed “unacceptable”.

Mistake number three was diving into the pool to save his life when he fell. It would have been less complicated to hide his body.

When the hospital refuses to let me know how he is, I panic.

Claiming to be his wife might be my biggest mistake yet—especially when he believes me!

He might have been the one drowning, but I’m sinking in a bed of lies, going down fast—and there’s not a rescue in sight.

Kobo


  
This is book two in this series but they can be read as standalone books. I haven’t read the first book and wasn’t lost at all. This is actually the first book I have read by Jordan and I really liked it. I have added book one to my TBR list already. Aden Smith is an a**hole. Hope is trying to get a motel she inherited from her aunt up and running. She was supposed to open but didn’t pass inspection. Aden won’t take no for an answer when she tries to explain this so Hope finally caves and gives him the room. If she didn’t need the money she would totally kick him out. Hope doesn’t have the best luck and allowing Aden to have a room may be more bad luck. Things only get worse and then when Aden falls and hits his head all Hope can think about is him suing her. So, when the paramedics assume that she is his wife she doesn’t argue. She needs to make sure he is okay and they won’t tell her anything otherwise. Now she finds in a mess of lies and drowning. This Aden is different from the Aden that has been staying at the hotel for the last week. This Aden is sweet and kind. She finds herself wanting this Aden. What will Hope do now? She knows she needs to tell him the truth, but then he will hate her and she doesn’t want to lose him. This book had me laughing so hard at times. I was right with Hope calling Aden a few colorful words. Then I wanted to cry with Hope and Aden both when the truth came out. Both of been through so much and past hurts have colored their now. Hope comes from a funny and interesting family. I love all the characters in this series and look forward to reading more about them. I also look forward to reading more books by Jordan.
