Kylie Scott: Trust Blog Tour & Review 



Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

TRUST by Kylie Scott (Official Book Trailer) from FILM 14 on Vimeo.



“You were going to give it up to Duncan Dickerson?” he sneered. “Are you serious?”

I halted, staring at him. This was not good. “How do you know about that?”

“Anders overheard you and Hang talking.”


“Well?” he demanded, acting all authoritarian. Idiot.

“To be fair, I didn’t know his last name was Dickerson,” I said. “That’s unfortunate. Though, I wasn’t actually planning on marrying him, so . . .”

“Not funny.”

I shrugged.

“You barely know the guy.”

“Um, yeah. None of your concern. We’re not talking about this.” How mortifying! My face burned bright. People should just gather around and cook s’mores. “I appreciate that we’re friends. You mean a lot to me. But this is going to have to fall under definitely none of your damn business, so go away please.”

“We’re talking about it.” He advanced a step.

“No we are not.” And I retreated.

“You were going to let a complete stranger touch you.” Advance.

Retreat. “People do it all the time. You do it all the time.”

“But you don’t,” he said, taking the final step, backing me up against the side of his car and getting all in my face. “Edie, this is your first time we’re talking about. Isn’t it?”

“Yes, and it’s going to be messy and painful and probably horribly embarrassing and I just want it over and done with.” I tried to meet his eyes but failed, settling for a spot on his right shoulder. “You’re not a girl; you wouldn’t understand. Also, last time I checked, you’re not the gatekeeper of my hymen, John Cole. So back the fuck off.”

He said nothing.

Deep, calming breaths. “Look, someday I’ll meet someone I really like and we’ll have a deep and meaningful relationship and go at it like bunnies. But I don’t want to be the dumb virgin in that scenario.”

He slowly shook his head.

“Also, I do not want to die a virgin.”

“What? What the hell are you talking about?”

“Hey, you and I both know death can occur at any time.”

“This is crazy.”

“I’m seeing a therapist!” I told his shoulder. “I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m a little bit messed up these days. It’s hard for me to trust people. That’s not going to change anytime soon.”

He screwed up his face at me. “Wha—”

“I’m just trying to be practical.”

“Well, you’re being ridiculous. None of this makes sense.”

“It does to me.”

Again, he said nothing.

In fact, he said nothing for so long that I finally looked him in the eye. The anger had left him, replaced by an emotion I didn’t recognize. Worst of all, he still smelled like summer. A little sweat and the open night air, everything I loved. Liked. I meant liked.

“What?” I said, finally.

He let loose a breath. “I’ll do it.”






5 Stars!!

I’ve got so many thoughts going through my head after finishing this book, to sum up all of the thoughts I pretty much just want to say WOW! 
Now I love Kylie’s Stage Dive & Dive Bar books, but I’ve got to say, even with this being a YA book it is her best work by far!! 

You get sucked right into this book from the very first page. This is a coming of age book that is so carefully thought out, you fall in love with both characters throughout their journey of self discovery after going through a traumatic life changing event.

The book is told from Edie’s POV, but I would have loved to see some of John’s POV in some parts of the book. 

Edie and John both meet at the most horrifying life changing event a teen could possibly go through. Edie was your typical good girl but that soon changes after that fateful night. Edie begins to look at life a little different and try’s to live more than shying away from everything. Whereas John, he was the school trouble maker and local weed dealer, who decides to turn his life around and focus on his future. 

Having gone through this traumatic event together, they have a bond nobody seems to understand, a bond that starts with friendship and a great amount of “Trust”, that soon turns into more and a beautiful coming of age love story unfolds. 

I for one cannot wait for more YA stories from Kylie Scott and I would love if some of the secondary characters in Trust got a book of their own.

Penelope Ward: Drunk Dial Cover Reveal! 

We are excited to bring you the upcoming standalone from New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Penelope Ward.

DRUNK DIAL will release on AUGUST 21!



Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs
Cover Model: Vadim Ivanov
Cover Photography: Kevin Roldan


From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

The Bars Between Us by A.S. Teague – Blog Tour and Review

Today we have the blog tour for The Bars Between Us by A.S. Teague!! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!!

Title: The Bars Between Us

Author: A.S. Teague

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Bars Between Us:

I don’t have a damn thing in common with the beautiful rich girl who walks in to my bar. She’s southern class, fancy cars, and designer shoes.

I’ve got a drunk for a mother, a cheater for a father, and a reputation for trouble I’ve more than earned.

I look the other way, pretending I don’t notice how perfect she is. She wouldn’t give me the time of day anyway. Until she shatters that first impression and shows me she’s so much more––everything I never thought I deserved.

After a lifetime of being a disappointment, I want to prove to her that I’m better than my past.

We have one tragic thing in common, and the thread that binds us together will tear us apart as it unravels.

Are we strong enough to break through the Bars Between Us?

What a great read. I was totally sucked into this one from the prologue and it was really hard to put down. Grace Monroe is certainly a little spitfire. Having lost her dad at an early age in the most horrible way, the remainder of her childhood whilst privileged was cold with little love. Now a qualified nurse, her first job takes her back to the coast where she lived with her parents, she never could have known that the first person she meets would change everything

Bronn Williams has had a troubled life. His dad was killed when he was young and his drunk mother wanted nothing to do with him. Now he drinks to forget. When a sassy woman sits down in his bar, who is the exact opposite of him and everything he believes he isn’t, his life is thrown into turmoil. He has never wanted a relationship with anyone but Grace changed all that, she made him believe in himself, believe he could be better and that deep down they were more similar then they appear on the outside.

But the path to love was not easy and just as things seem to be working out for them, their lives getting back on track, a spanner is thrown in the works, tossing everything up in the air. This is huge and neither are sure they can come back from this.

The Bars Between us certainly was an emotion filled read. I loved Grace and all her sass. She wasn’t afraid to speak her mind or call Bronn out on anything. She was down to earth and honest, nothing like the life she was brought up in and Bronn really had to start from scratch and learn to accept his life and his past for what it was and know that it doesn’t define him. I loved the chemistry between them and I think they both certainly learnt that you can’t judge a book by its cover. I’ve really enjoyed all of AS Teague’s books but i think this one might be my favourite to date and you certainly won’t regret one clicking this.

Vi Keeland: Beautiful Mistake Release Blitz & Review



The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.

Oops. My mistake.

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…

5 Freaking Awesome Stars!!

I don’t think I have enough words to describe how much I loved this book! This is without a doubt the best book of Vi Keeland’s yet! I honestly struggled to put this book down early hours in the morning so I could get some sleep! 
From the moment I started the book, I knew I was going to love it.

Rachel Martin meets Cain West in a bar where she mistakes him to be the guy her best friend dated and then found out he was in fact married. After deeply embarrassing herself by having a pop at the wrong guy, she flees thinking she will never see him again anyway. Well Cain West turns out to be Professor West, and Rachel is his new TA. She’s heard a few rumours about Professor West supposedly being a hard arse, but Rachel has to find it in her not to imagine herself doing things with the Professor and his extremely hard ass.

As you can imagine, there is a lot of sexual tension between the two of them considering how they first met, plenty of banter between them as well, which I found myself laughing out loud to! I loved the dual POV you get in the book. I was hooked trying to work out a certain connection and loved how things turned out! 

If like me you love a rom-com with plenty of heart, sizzling heat, swoon and laughs, this is definitely for you! 

Vi Keeland is a #1 New York Times Bestselling author. With more than 1.5 million books sold, her titles have appeared in over eighty Bestseller lists and are currently translated in sixteen languages. She resides in New York with her husband and their three children where she is living out her own happily ever after with the boy she met at age six.

The Iron Tiara by Beth Flynn – Release Blitz & Review



Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman are from two completely different worlds.Anthony’s the leader of a motorcycle gang that terrorizes Florida’s West Coast. As a child, he ran away from his family and the Cherokee Indian Reservation to enter a life of crime. As an adult, he leads a multifaceted life managing his two businesses—his legitimate landscaping venture, and his loan shark and underworld dealings. Driven by anger and betrayal, Anthony begins the hunt for Christy’s father, Van Chapman, after he runs out on a loan.

Christy’s privileged life is not as it seems. She has kept painful family secrets and hidden some of her own. She’s determined to find out the truth and expose Van, but her search delivers her right into Anthony Bear’s hands, adding kidnapping to his list of crimes

Their worlds are as contrasting as the color of their skin. The only thing they seem to have in common is their mutual disdain for Van Chapman…and each other.

They couldn’t be more wrong.

The Iron Tiara is a spin-off novel from The Minutes Trilogy. It can be read as a standalone, and does not contain a cliffhanger.

4.5 Stars

Yet again, Beth has delivered us a fantastic and very unique story. The Iron Tiara was everything I hoped it would be and I loved being returned to the world she so beautifully created for us.  You can’t help but be transfixed by Beth’s words, the way her stories evolve and the journey it takes you on through the years and you are left wanting more, so much more.

Anthony Bear and heiress, Christy Chapman grew up in completely different worlds and are a very unlikely couple. Having caught little glimpses of them throughout the Nine Minutes trilogy it was great to find out their story, to go back to the start and see how they met.

Anthony was a fighter in every sense of the word from a very young age. He grew up on the streets, moving from place to place and a life of crime was almost inevitable. He trusted few and now a “successful” criminal, he has fought his way to the top, a thoroughly intimidating and ruthless alpha male, that nobody in their right mind would cross. That is until Van Chapman …..

There was certainly more to Christy then first meets the eye. On face value, she is the privileged heiress but actually that couldn’t be further from the truth. She is incredibly feisty, opinionated but also has her own demons and a past that haunts her. Threatened by over 6 feet of alpha male Indian, Christy did what she does best and fights back but this time she does not get what she wants and finds herself kidnapped as a way to entice her father to pay the huge debt he owes to Anthony.

From the start there is something between them, simmering under the surface. Each of them has pre-judged the other, made there own assumptions and for there own reasons, neither wants a relationship. Like magnets they are drawn together, the spark between them is intense but after so long are either of them able to let down the walls they have built up and allow the other in.

It was great to see much loved characters, Grizz and Ginny and see them and parts of the previous trilogy weaved effortlessly into this story. Beth’s writing is meticulous, detailed and you can’t help but lose yourself in her words as they completely consume you right to the very last turn of the page. Well done Beth, I absolutely loved it

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.

Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience.

“You’re pregnant.”

“It’s a boy.”

“Your son needs a heart transplant.”

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.


Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun.

Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky.

“He’s gone.”

For ten years, the darkness consumed me.

In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise.

“Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”

5 Stars

I actually felt like i held my breath for quite a bit of this book. What a story, i’m at a total loss for words, my heart hasn’t quite recovered and now i feel like i’m just rambling on but wow, just wow. Aly has done an amazing job with this book, its a highly emotional, intense, captivating story of two souls who are lost in the darkness, struggling to pull themselves out just going through the motions, existing not living.

Charlotte has literally been to hell and not come back from it. She has endured things that no mother should ever have to and now left with nothing else she throws herself into her work as a doctor. For 10 years she has been like a robot, devoid of any emotion, wearing the same mask day in day out and she sees no light at the end of the tunnel, her hope dwindling as each day passes.

Porter, OMG this man had me swooning right from the start. Three years after the death of his wife, there are still so many unanswered questions around the events of that fateful night. He can’t make sense of it but as sole parent to two children, one of whom is sick, he has learnt to put on a face for their sake. But the darkness consumes him constantly and with his son’s health declining rapidly, he will do anything to help him including trying to get Grace to bend her no treating children rule. She’s the best and doesn’t his son deserves that.

The connection between these two is intense and woven with passion and understanding that no other person can truly understand. “Two people alone in the darkness. No questions, No judgements, No faking it” Your emotions will run high whilst reading this book, despair one minute to laughing at the witty humour and banter the next which only helps to weave these characters further into your heart. Knowing it was a duet, I expected a cliffhanger but oh my, that ending !!!! This is a beautiful, intense story full of passion, loss and of finding love and learning to let go of the past and move into the sunlight. I can’t wait to read book 2
