THE DISTILLER'S DARLING by Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley

Coming June 21
Blurb:
Irish whiskey royalty has no place in Northern California, but that wasn’t going to stop Iain Brennan, the black sheep of Brennan Family Distillers, from giving it a shot. Wine Country is an unlikely place to launch a whiskey empire, but Iain’s just reckless enough to make it work. And being out from under the watchful eye of his disapproving father back home in Dublin? Even better. Naomi Klein has spent the last ten years ignoring her society family as much as possible while building a career as a renowned sculptor. She’s found a home in River Hill, but has no interest in dipping her toes into the commitment pool. Just the idea of forever gives her hives. Which makes a rootless Irish wanderer the perfect fling. And shocking her mother? Just a bonus. But as cozy autumn nights turn into lazy winter mornings, Naomi and Iain realize that they’re getting close to something neither of them wants: love. When Naomi discovers Iain’s not quite as rootless as he seems, she’ll have to make some tough decisions. And when the Brennans and the Kleins descend en masse to collect their prodigal children, River Hill may never be the same.

It’s time to end this and claim what’s mine.
Because I’m hers, and she’s mine and we … We’re forever.

“What I really admired about this book was the romance. It wasn’t an immediate fall into bed and declare their love for each other. It was realistic, rough on the edges, and slow burning. This isn’t something you see often in the sports romance genre (at least I haven’t found many like this) and Lost & Found is unique with the pacing, the story line and the honesty between all of the characters.” - Ashley

Review: Six Feet Under by Whitney Barbetti

Title: Six Feet Under - Book 1 in the Mad Love Duet
Author: Whitney Barbetti
Release day: 4/24/18
Source: ARC from author
Links:

Synopsis:

Six wasn’t the hero I needed.

But he was the man I wanted.

And it was my selfish craving, the desire to own him, that would be our undoing. 

No one tells you that love is a disease. An infection that tears your heart apart, leaving you half the person you were before. A malady that leaves open wounds. An invisible disorder tracing scars in the places you couldn’t see if you weren’t looking for them. 

I was sick, but love didn’t heal me.

Instead, it festered in my marrow, and drove me to unforgivable mistakes. 

Six was my first mistake, but he wouldn't be the last.



REVIEW


Here's the thing about this book, it has so many many layers, so many things all tangled up within it's pages that I couldn't possibly sum it all up in a review for you, nor would I try. Instead, what I will do, in an attempt to remain spoiler free, yet entice you to entire the wild ride that is the Made Love Duet, is to explain all the reasons why you should read it.

Whether you've read Whitney Barbetti before or haven't, there is one thing you should know - her writing will force you to examine emotions, characters, plots in many ways. It will suck you in and leave you grasping on the bits and pieces you unravel as each page turns to the next.

Six Feet Under is book one in a duet, that means of course that you are NOT going to get a full conclusion at the end of this book. You are going to be left with questions, you are going to be left aghast in some ways and anxious in others. Prepare yourself. The good news is the torture won't be long as Pieces of Eight it quick to follow.

To say Mira is a complex person is putting it mildly - but there are reasons - there is a purpose to all of the complexities that make up who she is - that define her. There might be moments you down right loathe her, there will be moments you just want to give her a hug, and then there are tons of moments where you feel as lost as she does and don't know what to hope for next. BUT if you really dig deep, if you learn her, if you feel her pain, if you get even a small inkling of the whys and the hows - you'll come away understanding Mira and the way she is, the decisions she's made and the actions she's taken.

Six is quite a character himself, I've craved knowing his and Mira's story for a long time, after catching glimpses of both characters in other books. One of the things about Six that has always struck me is his determination, his fierce loyalty, and his strength. All of these things drew me to him, all of these qualities have their place in the story of these two.

Six Feet Under gives us the beginning of these two, that first immediate connection, and draw us out from there, through many years, and many struggles, and hurts and pains, but also some good moments to. This book showcases Mira's demons and how they follow her, how she fights them, how she embraces them and every stage in between. This book spans a ten year period, and you'd think that a time span that long would be drawn out and slow moving, but in truth, each and every moment will engage you in some manner. You'll find yourself craving more even as you dread what might happen next. You will be lost in the tirade of emotions, swept up in the depths of Mira's sickness all while finding little bits of hope to cling to. Six and Mira's path is not easy, not free of troubles nor pain, but it is raw and real and rightfully theirs.

Barbetti tackles an extreme topic with grace and realism, she shines a light on the mental struggles of a character who can be selfish, mean, misunderstood, but one who deserves love despite all of that.

Release Blitz: Rome's Chance by Joanna Wylde

 

From New York Times Bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes ROME’S CHANCE, a new novella in her Reapers MC series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!

 

About ROME’S CHANCE:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes a new story in her Reapers MC series…

Rome McGuire knew he was in trouble the first time he saw her.

She was sweet and pretty and just about perfect in every way. She was also too young and innocent for the Reapers Motorcycle Club. He did the right thing, and walked away.

The second time, he couldn’t resist tasting her.

Gorgeous and smart, fun and full of wonder, she jumped on his bike and would’ve followed him anywhere. Still, she deserved a shot at happiness somewhere bigger and better than a town like Hallies Falls. Walking away wasn’t so easy that time, but her family needed her and he had a job to do.

When she came around a third time, he’d had enough. Randi Whittaker had been given two chances to escape, and now it was time for Rome to take his.

This time, the only way Randi would be leaving Hallies Falls was on the back of Rome’s bike.

   EXCERPT: “Randi?” I froze, because I knew that voice. Rome McGuire. The sound was rough and sexy, with just a hint of a growl. Deeper than it’d been eight years ago, when I’d thrown caution to the wind and hopped on the back of his motorcycle for one glorious night. Back then, I’d still been a shy little thing, terrified that some hot biker might actually want to talk to me, let alone take me out. When I caught him watching me at the party, I remembered studying the floor, his shirt collar, even the beer in my plastic cup, because I hadn’t known what to do with myself around such raw male glory. Apparently some things never change, because when I turned to face him, I found myself staring at the floor again. This was a mistake, because his feet were down there. And the battered, black leather boots he wore led to jeans-covered legs. Legs topped by thick, muscular thighs. Stop it. You’re acting like a giant dork! My brain hissed. Oblivious and mesmerized, my gaze rose to the faded denim around his fly, and it was all over. My eyes started tracing the folds of the Okanogan Fire and Rescue T-shirt covering his still-muscular chest, although the Reapers Motorcycle Club vest he wore was a change. Back then, he’d been hanging around the Nighthawk Raiders MC. That whole club had disappeared for reasons I’d never fully understood, and the Reapers had taken over the town shortly afterward. Apparently Rome was one of them now. Interesting… I’d always wondered what’d happened to Rome after I’d left. We’d never said goodbye. That summer, the wildfires had swept through so fast that my family had to evacuate with the clothes on our backs. We hadn’t bothered to come back and sift through the ashes. I’d kept in touch with my old boss, Tinker, of course. I’d even considered asking her about Rome, but in some ways those fires were the best thing that ever happened to me. Starting over meant starting college in Missoula, and then a whole new life. Wasn’t like Rome and I could’ve ever been anything real, anyway. Guys like him weren’t for girls like me. My gaze reached his neck, which bristled with thick, black stubble that was more than a little out of control—this was different from when I’d known him before. Not that he’d ever been baby-faced, but he’d definitely matured. Now there were a few wrinkles around those dark blue eyes, although the dimple was still there. So was the crooked smile that’d spontaneously combusted my panties. Correction. A crooked smile that was currently combusting my panties. Who knew that a supermarket could be such dangerous territory? “Been a long time,” he said. I shrugged, unsure what to say. I mean, yeah, we’d gone out on a date. He’d kissed me and wow… Not that we’d gotten much past second base, but he’d scored a home run in the lower deck of my ballpark, if you know what I mean. But he was one of those guys—you know, the kind of guys who hit lots of home runs with lots of girls. “Yeah, well…” My words trailed off.

REVIEW

First I have to say that if you haven't yet dived into Joanna Wylde's series, it is absolutely not going to be a problem starting with this novella but you might find yourself immediately wanting more of these books.  

Rome's Chance was a quick read, full of what I've come to expect from Joanna Wylde, well written characters, a story that suits them and sucks me in, and a hint at what the rest of the series will deliver. 

Rome and Randi have known each other for a long time, Rome let her slip out of his fingers years ago so when she's back in town, he's on it to take the chance he wanted back then.  I really enjoyed the set up for their story and their interactions from start to finish, it was interesting to watch play out and see how different Rome was from previous heroes in the series. 

Randi's been through a lot, she's done more than her fair share when it comes to family, but she can't give up on them either.  She's never forgotten Rome or their tiny connection from before she left town.  

Rome's Chance delivers a sexy, sweet, romance between a man determined to win over the woman he's known was his for a long time. But can he show her how well they fit? Will they find love together or will Rome's chance be lost?
