Grin and Beard It
by Penny Reid Winston 
Brothers #2 
Publication Date: May 31, 2016 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romantic Comedy

  Grin&BeardItCover


Sienna Diaz is everyone’s favorite “fat” funny lady. The movie studio executives can’t explain it, but her films are out-grossing all the fit and trim headliners and Hollywood’s most beautiful elite. The simple truth is, everyone loves plus-sized Sienna.

But she has a problem, she can’t read maps and her sense of direction is almost as bad as her comedic timing is stellar. Therefore, when Sienna’s latest starring role takes her to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park she finds herself continually lost while trying to navigate the backroads of Green Valley, Tennessee. Much to her consternation, Sienna’s most frequent savior is a ridiculously handsome, charming, and cheeky Park Ranger by the name of Jethro Winston. Sienna is accustomed to high levels of man-handsome, so it’s not Jethro’s chiseled features or his perfect physique that make Sienna stutter. It’s his southern charm. And gentlemanly manners. And habit of looking at her too long and too often. Sienna has successfully navigated the labyrinth of Hollywood heartthrobs. But can she traverse the tenuous trails of Tennessee without losing her head? Or worse, her heart?

*** RELEASE BLITZ, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY *** Sweet Jayne by K. Webster

Sweet Jayne by K. Webster 
Publication Date: May 31, 2016 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark, Romance, Standalone


Front Only


Nadia Jayne’s world is full of villains.
Kasper thinks he hates her. Donovan thinks he loves her. Logan thinks he owns her. Sweet Jayne is a complicated girl… She needs Kasper. She hides from Donovan. She has a plan for Logan. But maybe complicated Jayne isn’t so sweet after all… In fact, she might just be the biggest villain of them all. 

WARNING: Story contains dark taboo themes and violence both sexual and physical which could trigger emotional distress in reader. 


My Review 

K. Webster has written another dark, sexy and twisty story. Sweet Jayne, told in dual pov, tells the story of Nadia and the three men in her life: Donovan, Kasper and Logan. As Nadia and Logan tell the story of Sweet Jayne, Nadia's history unfolds in the most unexpected way leaving me wondering what was actually happening more than once. 

Sweet Jayne opens with 17 year old Nadia moving to a new town with her mother and new step father Dononvan. With their complicated relationship, Nadia isn't quite sure what to make of him. Then she witnesses a devasting abduction that leaves her reeling even after 10 years when the story picks back up. 

Kasper is the abducted girl's brother and he's sure Nadia knows more than she's told anyone. For the last 10 years he's tried to find his sister with no luck while Nadia goes to college and starts her life until she disappeared three years ago only to show up again as his boss Logan's fiancé.

Logan is Nadia's fiancĂ© yet their relationship is anything but traditional. With an air of mystery surrounding them, Logan is possessive and controlling and seemingly not good boyfriend material. It's clear that Nadia is playing a role in a game she's created but the reader is left to wonder what that is. 

With so many intersecting storyliness, Nadia's story left me speechless more than once. Just when I thought I had it somewhat figured out, I was given a new piece of information that had my head spinning. Ms. Webster is a master storyteller. The way she weaves together her stories is nothing short of brilliant. I would only say that in Sweet Jayne I had a moment in which my suspension of disbelief wouldn't fully let go and that particular part of the twist seemed like there should have been a much easier solution earlier on. But even when the realistic and problem solving part of my brain took over, I was still able to enjoy the suspense and mystery. Plus this may be the sexiest book I've read from K. Webster yet. There were a couple sex scenes here that seriously almost started my Kindle on fire. With the the sexual tension and the unraveling relationship I wasn't exactly sure about made it that much sexier. I'll read K.'s brand of taboo any day. Actually I'll read anything K writes any time she writes it because she's a master at her craft.

*** HUGE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND SALE, FUNDRAISER & GIVEAWAY for Samuel

Reactions: 

Thanks to amazing, generous authors and publishers we have over 70 BOOKS on sale this weekend to help fundraise for Samuel Thorne. 

Please take the time to read about Samuel and why he needs our help and support. Grab yourself a bargain with these amazing sales, and don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of the post and enter the HUGE GIVEAWAY for $300 worth of Amazon gift cards, signed paperbacks + much more.


Samuel was running around with all his friends at his school disco one night and within 48 hours, he was in an induced coma, fully paralysed and on a life support ventilator breathing for him. His entire spinal cord and parts of his brain stem were being attacked by his own immune system brought on by a rare condition known as Transverse Myelitis. The extent of the effect on Samuel has been extreme. 

​This fit, healthy and loving young boy has seemingly overnight been robbed of so much capacity. 

​To get Samuel home, over $350 000 has been estimated as the amount of funding needed. This will go to covering costs for home modifications, specialized medical and therapy equipment, wheel chairs and a modified motor vehicle. Samuel will also require staff to monitor him during the day and night for the long term. 

​Until all basic equipment, home modifications and staffing are in place, Samuel’s family cannot bring him home. 

​You can read more about Samuel’s condition on the Facebook page or Website

Please consider donating to Samuel’s campaign and help him get home to his family. Every dollar makes a huge difference and is so appreciated.

Foreword

Penning a foreword is something that I can now cross off on my bucket list. This book is a perfect fit for me. Why you ask? My Dad is a Yank, aka American and my Mum is a Limey, aka Brit. Yes, I'm very blessed to have my feet in both worlds. 

The co-authored The American and The Brit is seamlessly written and I appreciate this as I’ve collaborated on four books with my son, Adam and can understand how difficult these type projects can be. 

Hilarious from start to finish, you will surely be entertained. Phoebe and Liz draw you in from the first page with their relatable situational dilemmas.

I wish the authors, a real American and a real Brit much success, what am I saying? It will be a success.

~ Carol Kunz aka USA Today Bestselling Author Amanda Jason aka the C. in C.A. Kunz

Purchase: Amazon (#FREE with #KindleUnlimited)

Synopsis: 

James “Mac” Maccari’s career in the mafia is at a standstill. As the best solider in his Capo’s crew, all he wants is to be noticed enough to get Made in the Pivetti Crime Family. But instead, his Capo’s interests seem more focused on keeping his solider hidden from the boss, and every other Made man he can. Seemingly stuck right where he is with no chance of going up, Mac doesn’t know what will finally get him the attention he needs to earn his button.

Until she shows up and all eyes are on them … Melina Morgan survives—that’s just what she does. She’s never been able to depend on anyone but herself to keep her safe and get things done. When a chance encounter puts her in a bad situation with the cops and the mafia, Melina has no choice but to put her faith in the hands of a man that not only infuriates her with his cocky arrogance, but catches her interest, too. Playing pretend in a fake relationship with Mac doesn’t seem all that terrible, until pretend turns real and bullets start to fly. A man is nothing without his woman … When the attention on Mac and Melina turns from bad to worse, and someone in the Pivetti Crime Family decides the couple needs to go, they know they’re fighting an uphill battle alone. But making it to the end alive means Mac could get what he’s always wanted, and Melina might find what she didn’t even know she needed. Together, they’ll make waves the mafia has no choice but to notice …

My Review 

IT CAN'T BE OVER YET. Nooooooooo! 

Okay. Now that I got that off my chest...

This was excellent. Beyond excellent, really. The first book in a 3 book series, Mac and Melina's story is told in dual pov. Mac is one of the best soldier's in his Capo's crew and working toward becoming a Made Man. That is if his Capo allows him to be noticed which doesn't seem to be happening. Mac quietly does his job, works his way out from the shadows cast by his family and The Family, waiting for his time. Then he meets Melina and all his best laid plans kind of go out the window. 

Melina has spent most of her life working to keep her family afloat. Losing her mother at a young age and then working to keep her father from sinking further into oblivion, she does everything she can to guard her heart and her family. When her father passes away, her life takes a series of twists and turns she could never have anticipated. Meeting Mac included. Mac could very well be the best thing that ever happened to her or the very worst. 

As Mac's ties to the Mafia and Melina's increasingly interconnected ties to both the cops and the Mafia mount, these two have to play happy families or both could lose more than their jobs. As Melina tries to guard her heart, Mac sneaks in leaving her vulnerable in more ways than one. 

This story started off right out of the gate and never let up. I went in completely blind to the story line and loved every twisty-turny minute of it. I started reading and thought I knew what was to come but I was so wrong. I love being shocked and I was shocked over and over again. Plus I loved Melina's strong character and her take-no-shit attitude (at least until Mac came along). I could see a lot of myself in her and could sympathize with her. Mac was the perfect hero. Strong and determined. Loyal and dedicated. Their sexual tension was smoking hot and when they finally gave into temptation, my Kindle caught fire. Then as the story unfolded, my mouth hung ajar and by the end I couldn't believe the path the story took. And now I die a little waiting for book 2. (Yes, there is a bit of a cliffy but nothing Kindle chucking worthy, just enough to make me delirious for more.)

Bethany-Kris writes some of the best Mafia romances out there and has become one of my favorite authors. Now it's safe to say that Erin Ashely Tanner is up there with her because together these two were phenomenal. And I can't wait for more.
