SOMETHING LIKE HATE by Harloe Rae

Release date: June 10th

Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-lovers/Billionaire Romance/Office Romance

A sizzling all-new enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Harloe Rae where a billionaire CEO battles against a snarky redhead who has her own agenda.

Synopsis

“I’d say it’s nice to meet you, but I’ve never been a good liar.”

That’s his initial offense against me.

Don’t worry—there’s plenty more where that came from.

Landon Winters is colder than his last name suggests.

Cruel and callous too.

I’m certain he finds pleasure in making others miserable.

He’s a billionaire by his own making—not satisfied with simply inheriting a white collar and silver spoon.

Landon’s arrogance is so thick I could choke on the stench alone.

He’s also responsible for gouging a jaded chip into my shoulder.

The only saving grace is never having to see him again.

Wishful thinking is a fickle beast.

My boss just announced that Landon is my latest client.

I’ll need to impress him or kiss my promotion goodbye.

Either way, this is my chance to get even.

Revenge is all I see.

The price for redemption is steep.

Landon will pay a small fortune in humiliation.

And I’ll walk away filthy rich in vindication.

EXCERPT

“So, neither of us is willing to surrender.” His slight detour in topic raises my hackles. He could derail our discussion for hours with a few misplaced words.

I roll my neck, a few joints popping with the stretch. “I guess that leaves us to finally getting down to business.”

“It’s about damn time you’ve warmed up to my idea.” He reclines in his chair with a moan any porn star would envy.

“Oh, please, stop.” A retching sound yanks from my throat.

“Why should I? You’re quite gorgeous, Savannah.”

“Quit flirting with me.” My tone borders on begging.

“Why?” A curious sparkle twinkles in his gaze as he repeats the question.

“It’s… weird.”

“Only because you like me hitting on you.”

I make another show of choking on bile. “You’ll never get me to admit such a despicable thing.”

“A new challenge? I accept.”

Why does it feel like I just signed my own resignation notice? Veering this conversation onto professional ground is my only chance to salvage his account. “Ditto, which is precisely what your demands are to me. Did you get my emails with the listings?”

Landon scowls. “Yes, but that can wait.”

“It should take precedence. I’m prepared to accomplish actual progress on finding you a property. That’s why I’m here, remember?”

“Terms and conditions change by the minute.”

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Publication Date: June 10, 2021



I truly love the enemies-to-lovers trope and was so happy to be approved to receive a copy of an ARC.
This is the first book I’ve read by Harloe Rae, but I have to admit, it took me a while to get used to her writing voice.

I really liked the premise of the story, but the banter between the protagonists was just so toxic, I thought I was going to lose a part of my soul just reading the schemes and lengths the characters were willing to go to in order to one-up the other.



I had to put the book down for a couple of days just to convince myself to give it a second chance and see where the author was going with the story.

I’m glad I did because it was definitely looking like it was going to be a DNF for me.

I absolutely HATED Landon Winters!
He was cruel, cold and conniving and the author did a fantastic job of making the reader hate him.
But, the reader doesn’t know how diabolical he is until he deals his final blow to Savannah Simon that has her leaving him almost broken.




What you have to understand is that Savannah is no push-over. She’s strong, smart, funny, and snarky.

She gives as good as she gets, but Landon is just so broken that he crosses a line that should never be crossed.



His journey to redemption with Savannah is what gives this book a 3-star rating and worth the read.



I’m glad I finished it, and now that I know what to expect in Ms. Rae’s stories I look forward to reading more of her work.

A BATTLE OF BLOOD AND STONE (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #4) by Sawyer Bennett is now available!

The clock is ticking as the queen of the Underworld gathers everything she needs to bring Hell on Earth, while Finley, Carrick, and their friends, both human and otherworldly, work to find a way to stop her.

Synopsis

Another day, another step closer to Hell on Earth being unleashed.

With every piece that falls into place for the queen of the Underworld, Kymaris gains strength and power that will make it more difficult to defeat her when the time comes. It feels as if we’re in a desperate race to get just one step ahead of her, but my demise feels closer than it ever has before with still so much to do.

The first order of business is to unlock the angelic powers with which I was gifted at birth, and Carrick insists on getting help from my archnemesis to do so. Yes, I have to save the world, but my priority has now become rescuing my sister from the Underworld. While there are many questions still to be answered about my long-lost twin, I know I will not win this battle without her by my side.

In the midst of all the doom and gloom, Carrick has become my beacon of shining light. Our connection unimaginable, my heart recognizes his as the other half of its whole. Inexplicable and deeper than one could ever imagine, the love I hold for him is forged by destiny, however ill-fated it may turn out to be.

And those are the feelings I must hold close…to keep me going. Because a painful lesson is on the horizon—betrayal never comes from your enemies.

A Battle of Blood and Stone is book four of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

A Battle of Blood and Stone by Sawyer Bennett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Publication Date: April 13, 2021

A Battle of Blood and Stone is the fourth book in the Chronicles of the Stone Veil tetralogy, it also gives the reader a better understanding of the epic love story of Finley and Carrick that has lasted throughout time.




It’s both beautiful and tragic.



Their souls will always recognize one another, but fate (or Rune) is jealous, hateful, and vindictive and will stop at nothing to punish Carrick for the rest of his life for the one transgression he did against him.



I enjoyed this book.
A lot of answers were revealed.
Bonds were made stronger, and a key player was lost.



I didn’t suspect the traitor until it was too late, well played Ms. Bennett!



This book was the perfect preamble for the final battle against Kymaris.


I can’t wait to read the next book!
So many things could/can happen.

Synopsis

Losing people you love is hard.

Aurora De La Torre knows moving back to a place that was once home isn’t going to be easy.

All Rhodes Lead Here by Mariana Zapata

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book.
So Good!

I loved this story, and read it in one sitting yesterday on my day off.
Loved Aurora (Oro, Roro)!
She was smart, brave, kind, compassionate, and I loved watching her grow in this book to be confident, stronger, independent woman.
Rhodes and Amos were just…Amazing!
I loved the whole family dynamic between Sara, Billy, Rhodes, and Amos.

Wonderful story with amazing new characters, and of course, Mariana makes reference to a couple of things/people from previous books.

Synopsis

Tegan is learning that it’s not all fun and games being in a relationship with the most powerful vampire in the city. For one thing, there seems to be a catastrophe around every corner, and for another, how can a relationship between a half-witch and an immortal actually work?

Fearing Ethan’s transformation, Finn has decided to escape the city with his friends in tow. Unfortunately, a magical barrier has been erected preventing anyone from leaving. Along the way he makes the acquaintance of a half-elf named Alora, who has just escaped her warlock kidnapper. Finn takes Alora under his wing and finds that his feelings for Tegan are fading as a new love blossoms.

In anticipation of Theodore’s next move, the group cast their prejudices aside and join forces one last time. They know that if the city is to have any chance of surviving, they must put an end to the sorcerer once and for all.

Sunlight is book #4 in L.H. Cosway’s Blood Magic Series. A previous unedited version of this story was published under the title Tegan’s Power

Sunlight by L.H. Cosway

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


“5- It’s the attraction of the soul that links two people together- Stars!”

Sunlight is the final book in the Blood Magic tetralogy.
What a wonderful conclusion to this well-written, well-developed, and well-executed series!

I loved how Ethan and Tegan’s relationship has developed.
I love that they’re now free to love and be who they were meant to be with one another.

And even with so much power at hand, Ethan’s only want – his only need is to be Tegan’s.
Tegan is also learning to control and tap into her power, and with the introduction of her grandfather, The Sorceror Roman and the proposal he offers her she could have it all…after they’ve defeated Theodore.

Once again L.H. Cosway has taken her readers on an amazing journey of adventure and love with unique, interesting, likable characters who you are cheering for right up until the very end.

I loved this series and I especially liked the twist at the end of this book that almost had me throwing my tablet across the room.
Well played L.H!

This was a wonderful story and a great series!

Happy Book Birthday and ARC review

A Discovery of Secrets and Fate (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #2) is NOW LIVE!

About A Discovery of Secrets and Fate: 

Life as I knew it ended the day I accepted my fate.

In its place is an existence even the wildest imagination could never fathom. Strange creatures walk among us, plotting our demise, and I’ve come to find that the fate of our world rests squarely on my shoulders. We’re all in danger and I’m trying to figure out how to make it through each day.

The key to my survival is a man I can’t figure out. As dangerous as the darkest fae, I have no choice but to work with him to stop the prophecy that’s foretold to be the ruination of mankind.

Carrick Byrne continues to be my only source of information, but he doles it out as he sees fit. He intrigues and scares me in equal measure, yet I can’t help but be attracted to him. And the more I discover about him, the more it becomes clear he feels the same.

As we travel to Faere in search of answers, we find that every piece of information leads to more questions, that every question leads to a new piece of the puzzle, and that, most importantly, no one can be trusted.

The more secrets we uncover, one thing is certain— if we have any chance of saving the world, we have to do it together.

A Discovery of Secrets and Fate is book two of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

A Discovery of Secrets and Fate by Sawyer Bennett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Publication Date: March 2, 2021



“5- All is not as it seems, stars!”




This is the second book in the “Chronicles of the Stone Veil” pentalogy, and I have to say that I’m really enjoying this series.

In A Discovery of Secrets and Fate there is more emphasis on character development and world-building.
Carrick and Finley are set to travel to Faere, and the author did a wonderful job of describing the land the Queen of the Light Fae has created, and the dynamics of their society.

The story’s writing was well-paced and we soon discover what Carrick is, and his true reason for helping Finley. We also learn the reason as to why Finley is so special.


The author is giving the reader the right amount of information to keep them engaged, but also not enough to have them surmise what will happen next.

I like where the author is going with Carrick and Finley’s characters.


I’m intrigued to find out what happens next because this book too, ended with a cliff-hanger.

This was a wonderful read and I’m anxious to read the next book in the series!

Eye Candy (Fighting for Love Book 3) by Jiffy Kate is now available!

Eye Candy, an all-new opposites attract small-town romance from Jiffy Kate, is LIVE EARLY on AppleBooks, Nook, Kobo, and GooglePlay!

Synopsis

Vali Erickson is the classic middle child—misunderstood, underestimated, and overlooked. He’s fine with it. Really. The overlooked part is actually serving him well during this phase of life.

He’s in Green Valley in an effort to fly under the radar and regroup after a life-altering blow to his heart and ego. The last thing he’s looking for is a woman to warm his bed until one throws him to the mat and rocks his world.

Margaret O’Neal is an only child who has led a sheltered life. She’s used to being a wallflower. Her ability to blend into the background is what allows her to maintain her anonymity as a gossip columnist for the Green Valley Ledger.

Since the Ericksons moved to town, she’s never felt more inspired, especially with the newest addition. Vali Erickson is the definition of eye candy—devastatingly handsome with muscles for days—giving her plenty to report about.

The more Maggie observes, the more she finds herself wanting things she’s only read about in romance novels.

Admiring Vali from afar is good enough for her until their paths cross and she finds herself trying to stay afloat in uncharted territory—no labels, no promises, and WAY out of her comfort zone.

Will this arrangement be what finally breaks her out of her shell, or will her heart be a casualty of the Viking Invasion?

‘Eye Candy’ is a full-length contemporary romance, and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Fighting For Love series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

5- I didn’t see her coming, I wasn’t expecting to find her.
But, Dear God, I’m glad I did – Stars!” – Vali Erickson

“Greeting, Good People of Green Valley.” – Trixie and Tess, Green Valley Ledger

Margaret O’Neal has a secret.  She’s the voice behind “The Green Valley Ledgers” gossip and advice column.  Nobody knows her secret but two people.  Her editor, Sarah, and her pen pal and confidant, Everly.
Margaret would also say that she suffers from a “lack of social interaction” because her parents were older when they had her.
She was homeschooled. 
She went to college through online courses. 
She works and has always worked for her parents – O’Neil Feed and Fodder Store, and she still lives at home with her parents.
Writing her weekly column for the “Green Valley Ledger” allows her to transform from Maggie O’Neal, feed store employee, to Maggie O’Neal, a writer, and columnist.
It’s through Maggie’s column that she’s able to tell the good people of Green Valley about the <i>”Viking Invasion”</i>, and that there’s a new addition to Viking MMA -Vali Erickson.

Vali Erickson’s reason for coming to Green Valley is to get away.
He was betrayed in the most brutal of ways.
He’s hurt, heartbroken, and has come to his brother’s MMA gym to get away, lick his wounds, ground himself, and learn to move on.

As fate would have it, Maggie and Vali end up getting to know one another. 
They agree to have a relationship “with no labels” because Vali doesn’t know how long he’ll be staying in Green Valley, and he wants to be upfront with Maggie that his move there was never meant to be permanent.
Their chemistry is off the charts.
Vali is Maggie’s everything firsts. 
First relationship.
First time travelling outside of Green Valley. 
First Love.

This is a wonderful story of Vali learning to trust and love, and Maggie learning to get off the sidelines of life and follow her dreams. 
When she does, she soars.


I just want to say that this is my MOST favourite story yet in the series!
I totally fell for Vali and Maggie.
Vali Erickson if f#@*ing Perfect, and I LOVED, LOVED Margaret (Maggie, Mags) O’Neil’s character!

Amazing read and a wonderful addition to the “Fighting for Love” series!

Welcome back to Weight Expectations, where the unexpected is likely to happen.

Cutie and the Beast, an all-new hilarious romantic standalone from M.E. Carter, is LIVE!

 

 

Synopsis

 

Living with her mother seemed like a good idea at the time. But Elliott Donovan’s living arrangements are not working for her anymore. Desperate to get back on her financial feet after a divorce and out from under her mother’s thumb, Elliott takes a job in the child care center at Weight Expectations, a local gym.

It has everything she needs – family friendly hours, more pay than she expected, and a super cute trainer who just happens to have part of his house for rent.

Abel DiSoto was living the good life until his wife walked out taking half of the family income with her. The blow to his ego was bad enough, but after a fire at the gym scattered Abel’s clients, and consequently his commissions, he’s stuck figuring out how to make ends meet, too. Renting out the master suite of his house to his new co-worker seems like an easy solution. They’re both mature adults, they both have eight-year-old daughters, and their work schedules coordinate so they can lend each other a helping hand to ease the burden of single parenthood.

The only downside? Living like a blended family when you’re not actually a family can present some challenges.

Welcome back to Weight Expectations, where the unexpected is likely to happen.

“5- It takes a Village to Raise a Child, Stars!

This was a wonderfully written contemporary romance about two single parents who are from totally different backgrounds. They would not have met under normal circumstances but as “fate” would have it, they are introduced to one another by a co-worker and come to a decision that they might be able to help one another out.

These characters Able (Beast) and Elliott (Cutie) are doing their best to raise their daughters while trying to deal with all the challenges that come with being a single parent.

Elliott needs a new place to stay, and Able needs a roommate to help with his mortgage since he lost a lot of his clients because of a fire.
What makes this decision even sweeter is that both their daughters go to the same school, are the same age, and are in the same class.

Able thought that when Elliott moved in that they simply would be roommates and cross paths every once in a while. It never occurred to him that their lives would quickly be intertwined because they soon both realized they needed one another because parenting is hard.

What started out as Able and Elliott loving and respecting each other as friends, gradually turns into them falling in love with one another.

This book was a beautiful story to read not only for the slow-burn romance but because the author did a wonderful job of showing the complexity of navigating the situations of a blended family.

Kudos M.E. Carter!

Wonderful story!
Wonderful characters!

My name is M.E. Carter and I have no idea how I ended up writing books. I’m more of a storyteller (the more exaggerated the better) and I happen to know people who helped me get those stories on paper. I love reading (read almost 200 books last year), hate working out (but I do it anyway because my trainer makes me), love food (but hate what it does to my butt) and love travelling to non-touristy places most people never see. I live in Houston with my four kids, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who was just a twinkle in my eye when I came up with my pen name. Yeah, I’ll probably have to pay for his therapy someday for being left out.

“I was all in with this slow burn romance that had me laughing and swooning from cover to cover” –Author Andrea Johnston

 

 

 

Beef Cake, an all-new small town contemporary romance from Jiffy Kate, is LIVE!

 

 

 

 

Synopsis

 

 

If opposites do actually attract, then Gunnar Erickson and Frankie Reeves take the cake.

Frankie Reeves is complicated, even though she won’t admit it. She fills her days working as an ER nurse, taking care of her mom, and searching for the father she never knew. Anything else has no place in her perfectly compartmentalized, purposefully simple life. Attachments? No thank you. She has no time for that.

Gunnar Erickson recently moved to Green Valley to train at Viking MMA with his brother Cage. Being the youngest of the Erickson clan, he’s always felt like he has something to prove, and now that he’s finished with college, it’s his time to shine. But before he can step into the ring, a freak accident sends him to the ER and into the care of one Frankie Reeves.

While he’s immediately smitten, she pretends to be unfazed by this six-foot-three, two hundred and thirty-pound beef cake. Gunnar sets out to prove to Frankie that, not only does she like him more than she wants to admit, but he’s not the uneducated, brute she assumes he is. To Frankie, he’s the worst kind of complication, but that doesn’t make it easy to stay away.

 

‘Beef Cake’ is a full-length contemporary romance, can be read as a standalone, and is book #4 in the Donner Bakery series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

“5- Learning to trust that you’ll catch me when I fall – Stars!”

 

 

I LOVED this book!
The story was engaging.
The writing fantastic.
The characters were interesting and likable.
I was cheering for Gunnar and Frankie right from the start!
Gunnar was perfect!
I love that he didn’t give up on Frankie.
That he was patient, kind, understanding, and gave her the room she needed to sort things out for herself, and waited for her to reach out for him when she was ready.

Frankie was one complicated, layered character.
She was compassionate, loving (in her own way), and honorable with her drive to help and heal others of their wounds.
Her wounds, however, ran deep.
I loved her story.

Reading about her journey in learning to trust, love, and forgive was a beautiful thing.

This is one of my favorite books this year!

 

It can be read as a standalone, so don’t fret if you haven’t read any of the other stories in the series or in Penny Reid’s Universe.

Beautiful! ❤

Synopsis

 

He’s been patient; she’s been busy.
Patience is running out.

Melissa Oxford is a widow with a ranch, an orange grove, a goat-obsessed ten-year-old, and not enough time. She doesn’t have time to make friends. She doesn’t have time to stop and chat, and she definitely does not have time for a boyfriend.
Which is fine, because Cary Nakamura is far from being a boy. Cary’s the man who helped Melissa plant her trees. The friend who keeps offering advice, even when she’s is too stubborn to take it.

He’s also the man who kissed Melissa in broad daylight on a sidewalk in Metlin, California, smack in the face of God and everyone.

But while Melissa may spend a little too long dreaming about Cary from a distance, she knows the kind of passion he promises is more than she can handle.

She just doesn’t have the time.

But sometimes, no matter how busy you are, life makes you stop. It pulls you up short and makes you see things a little more clearly. Things like…

The people you can count on.
The dreams you keep pushing away.
And the passion that can’t be denied.

4 – Stars!

You know, this was the first book I’ve read by Elizabeth Hunter?
I’ve been meaning to read her work before, but for some reason, my TBR pile is ridiculously out of control.

Alas, what a good story to read as my first!
This was a beautifully written friend to lovers slow-burn romance.
The characters literally grew up together, their mothers were and still are best friends.
They’ve experienced joy, triumphs, and heartbreak together.

I liked the characters, and I really liked the age difference between the protagonists.
These people knew what they want in life.
Their story was a journey of learning to accept their attraction to one another, and the transition from friends to lovers.
They just have to just keep everything simple.

Good story.
I look forward to reading more of Elizabeth Hunter’s work.

NOTHING TO FEAR-300RGB

 

“A well-written heroine elevates this above similar black-ops romantic thrillers. Plenty of spycraft and action to satisfy suspense fans!” -Publishers Weekly

 

Nothing to Fear, book two in the steamy and action-packed Final Hour Series by Juno Rushdan is available now!

 

NTF - AN

 

Synopsis

 

Lives are on the line

National security is at risk

The clock is ticking

 

Fearsome Gray Box operative Gideon Stone is devoted to his work and his team. He’s never given reason to doubt his loyalty…until he’s tasked with investigating Willow Harper, a beguiling cryptologist suspected of selling deadly bio-agents on the black market.

He knows she’s innocent. He knows she’s being framed. And he knows that without him, Willow will be dead before sunrise.

Thrust into the crossfire of an insidious international conspiracy, Gideon will do anything to keep Willow safe…even if that means waging war against his own. With time running out, an unlikely bond pushes limits—and forges loyalties. Every move they make counts. And the real traitor is always watching…

“5-Gimme, Gimme More -Stars!”

I’m giddy with anticipation for the next book in this series and also for discovering this author.
Juno Rushdan has found a new fan.
I have to check out her backlist to see what else I can read!

This story was intense, action-pact and so well executed that it was when I was at the 80% mark of the book, and that all the loose ends were starting to be tied up that I realized the story would soon end.

I want more:
– Of this Author’s writing and storytelling.
– More of this series.
– More of these characters and the amazing missions they go on.
Gideon and Willow were perfect for each other. Even though they spent most of the story in extreme danger, the author did a beautiful job of incorporating a well developed and amazing romance between the two.

Loved this book!
Love this series!
READ IT!

About Juno

 

JunoRushdan

Juno Rushdan draws from real-life inspiration as a former U.S. Air Force Intelligence Officer to craft sizzling romantic thrillers. However, you won’t find any classified leaks here. Her stories are pure fiction about kick-ass heroes and strong heroines fighting for their lives as well as their happily-ever-after.

Although Juno is a native New Yorker, wanderlust has taken her across the globe. Fortunately, she is blessed with a husband who shares her passion for travel, movies, and fantastic food. She’s visited more than twenty different countries and has lived in England and Germany. Her favourite destination for relaxation is the Amalfi Coast, Italy for its stunning seascape, cliffside lemon groves, terraced vineyards, amazing pasta, and to-die-for vino.

When she’s not writing, Juno loves spending time with her family. Exercise is not her favourite thing to do, but she squeezes some in since chocolate and red wine aren’t calorie-free.

She currently resides in Virginia with her supportive hubby, two dynamic children, and spoiled rescue dogs. Check her out on Instagram, Facebook or follow her on Twitter or BookBub. She loves to connect with readers!

She is represented by Sara Megibow of KT Literary.
