*** BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY *** This Isn't Fair, Baby by K. Webster

Reactions: 

This Isn’t Fair, Baby
War & Peace Series #6 
by K. Webster 
Publication Date: April 18, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance



***This is the sixth book in the series. First five books must be read in order to fully understand this story line.*** 

The king in my world fell and a new one slid into place. He wasn’t just. He wasn’t FAIR. He was cruel and hateful and twisted. But I had this black king figured out. Or so I thought. The game became complicated because my black king had some new moves and one of those involved my heart. Hope trickled in for the briefest of moments. That is, until my black king and my heart sided against me. Those two didn’t play FAIR. They used me as their pawn in a bigger game—a game I didn’t know how to play. The laws changed. I didn’t play by their rules anymore, for the queen makes up her own. I am not a pawn. I am not theirs to use and abuse. I belong to nobody. There are new players on the board and they don’t play FAIR either. But the white king does know how to treat his queen. And together, they will make them pay. All’s FAIR in love and war, right? Definitely not this time. 

***Warning*** This Isn’t Fair, Baby is a dark romance. Extreme sexual themes and violence, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to dark themes, then this story is not for you. 

My Review 

Maybe the dirtiest and darkest War & Peace book yet. Picking up where book 5 ended, we're taken inside Vee's head and her life as it is now. She's endured so much brutality and there doesn't seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel. But just when she's turned into the pawn they want to her be, she comes out like the queen she's meant to be. 

With the twists and turns I've come to expect from K. Webster, this story is nothing like I expected and I loved that about it. Vee is strong (maybe sometimes even a bit over the top strong) and her story was far from easy. It also got really, really twisted which honestly was a bit much for me at times because damn. Ms. Webster can write horror like nobodies business. The hero was perfect though and I wish I could say I saw it coming but I absolutely did not. Then of course, being par for the course with this series, we get an epilogue that left my jaw on the floor. 

Bring it on.

*** RELEASE BLITZ *** Elapse by Lou-Ella Fields

Reactions: 








Title: Elapse


Series: The Expiration Duet #1


Author: Lou-Ella Fields


Genre: Contemporary Romance


Release Date: April 23, 2017


Blurb


I thought our love was infinite, unbreakable. 

After six years together, butterflies would still take flight in my stomach every time he walked into a room. With just one smile I was putty in his hands. He promised me forever with every touch of his lips. Too late, I realized that I was being kept in an illusion made of glass; only to have him smash it apart and disappear before he could see it shatter around me in perfect ruins.

With a tiny life held in the palm of my hands, I'm haunted by the man who abandoned us.

And then there was him.

Immersing himself within the dust and debris as I was slowly opening my eyes to this new reality. He says he wants forever, but how can I believe him when love lies and forevers don't truly exist.

*** RELEASE BLITZ, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY *** Dr. OB by Max Monroe

Reactions: 

Other retailers to come!

Blurb:

It’s just a docuseries about your career as an OB/GYN, they said. 
It won’t interrupt your life during or after filming, they said. 
It is a great opportunity for the hospital and your practice, they said. 

Well, they—the television executives who seem intent on ruining my career and personal life with a fair number of creative liberties—lied. 
Now I’m stuck dealing with the consequences of believing them. 

Instead of being known as Dr. Will Cummings, Head of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Luke’s Hospital, I’m now being called Dr. Obscene. 

What I’d hoped to earn in respect, I’ve instead received in patients flashing me seductive smiles and flirtatious winks during their exams. 

How’s a guy supposed to convince the most perfect woman he’s ever met that he’s not as much of an idiot in real life as he appears to be on camera? 

With all of the show’s shenanigans following me around like a parasite, it’s going to take a lot to persuade Melody Marco to be anything more than my new nurse, but I can’t get her out of my head. 

I want her. 

Good thing I’ve never been one to back away from a challenge…

Get ready, Melody. 

The Doctor is in. 

Disclaimer:

9 out of 10 doctors recommend Dr. OB...No. You know what? F*ck it. TEN OUT OF TEN doctors, including Dr. Will Cummings himself, recommend this book to just about everyone and their mothers.

Unless said someone and their mothers dislike a little dirty mouthed fun, some creative swearing, laughing so hard they lose bladder control, and awkwardly adorable meet-cutes between two unforgettable characters.

But honestly, if you and your mother don't like that stuff, you probably shouldn't read any of our books.

Disclaimer for the disclaimer: If you're feeling the doctor groove and getting ready to get your motherfluffing read on (everybody get your motherfluffling read on, what!...tell us you can hear the music too), make sure you've got an empty lane ahead. Once you start reading about Will and Melody, we promise...you won't want to stop.


My Review

What a hilarious start to a new series (and more from some past favorites)! Dr. OB was a sweet and sexy romance that was bit silly in parts and emotional in others but wonderful all the same. Will was a hero that any romance lover with adore and Melody was a heroine that I could totally see myself in. If you've loved Max Monroe's previous works, this will be exactly what you are hoping for and if you're new to the duo, it's the perfect place to start. 

Will is a head of the OB/GYN department at St. Luke's hospital and recently agreed to be filmed for a reality show featuring him and two other doctors. But what he thinks will be a real look into the hospital is more of a lewd take on him personally. Now his patients are either disgusted by him or making appointments just to try and get to him. Melody hasn't heard of the new show when she moves back to New York after leaving her ex-boyfriend in Seattle. Living with her parents until she can get back on her feet, her mother sets her up with a job interview working for Dr. Cummings as his nurse. What starts as flirting turns into more but that reality show Will filmed before he ever knew Melody continues to be the bane of his existence. 

I haven't had so much fun reading in a while. I laughed right from the dedication and didn't stop. It was a sweet and easy rom-com that I didn't want to put down. And if you thought you'd seen the last of those Billionaire Bad Boys, you are in for a fun surprise. Max Monroe weaves Melody and Will's story perfectly so that I was able to fall in love with them but come back to some of my favorites. And the hints at the next two stories in this series have me SO excited for more from this new series.

Super-efficient Kate Darling needs lessons in love. As executive assistant to the CEO of the Sugar Rush Candy Company, Kate knows everything about organization and nothing about relationships. Then she literally falls into the arms of Tyler Stone, youngest Sugar Rush heir and notorious bad boy.

After a colossal screw-up involving a pretty girl and a stolen speedboat, Tyler is facing the punishment of an actual job.

Synopsis

Three centuries ago, Molly Darling’s ancestors signed a contract in blood—daemon blood—to protect themselves from harm. On the eve she turns nineteen, Molly leaves for her birthday party against her parent’s wishes, sick of their warnings about her “betrothal to a demon.” Except that she’s very much betrothed, and he’s very much a demon—one who’s only agreed to the nuptials to steal Molly’s ancient daemon powers. Brash, arrogant, and built like a Greek god, Tensley Knight keeps showing up to save Molly from otherworldly attacks, only to insult her a moment later. As Molly learns more about the demon world, she realizes two things: that her family’s safety depends on a successful marriage, while any chance of freedom she’ll ever have calls for Tensley’s demise. Yet sometimes Molly spots a tortured soul beyond those liquid grey eyes, and there’s no denying the way her skin tingles when Tensley touches it. In Vein of Love, safety requires sacrifice, foe becomes lover, and one must decide whether to kiss…or to kill.

Excerpt:

My phone chirped with an incoming text. I smiled at Pete, Officer Daniels, and held up the phone. “I’ll just be a minute. It’s probably Billy.” Pete let go of the restaurant door he’d been holding open for me. “He still mad you didn’t let him come for graduation?” After spending the summer with Pete’s family, I’d decided to stay for my senior year, a decision my father didn’t understand and still wasn’t happy about. “I think he’s coming around,” I said. Billy had wanted to attend to my high-school graduation. But the thought of my famous father in small town Beaverton, Oregon near all my friends figuratively made me break out in hives. Pete nodded. “All right, but don’t take too long. We’re excited to celebrate with you.” “Got it.” I smiled brightly. My gown fluttered in the early summer wind, I’d left my cap in the car. “Tell Gabe to save me a seat next to him.” Pete and Mel’s son Gabe had graduated with me and was set for a full-ride football scholarship to OSU. As for me, I’d be off to New York in a few weeks to attend college. Strolling the sidewalk, I peeked at my phone. It wasn’t my father. Mystery number: Hi. Me: Hi. Who’s this? Mystery number: Warren Price. Remember me? If it’s possible for your heart to fall straight out of your chest, mine did. Me: Yeah. How’d you get my number? Warren: I know people who know people. Me: Huh? Warren: It’s the digital age, babe. Not hard to find someone’s phone number. The right YouTube video and I could give myself a vasectomy. Me: Would you really do that? Warren: What? Me: Give yourself a vasectomy? Warren: Hell, no. But I could. Warren: You still there? Me: It’s been a long time. Warren: Sorry about that. Been thinking about you, though. Me: Yeah? Me: I don’t think this is a good idea, you and me talking. Billy doesn’t want us to be friends. Warren: I disagree. I think this is the best idea I’ve ever had. Besides, last time I checked we were a little more than friends. What you been up to? Me: In a nutshell? Billy sent me away to live in BFE. Since then… Went to school dances. Drank my first bottle of peach schnapps. Saw Twilight four times. Warren: Damn. That’s a lot of living for a small town. Me: I know. Mind blown, right? How about you, what have you been up to? Warren: Got booted from Billy’s celestial limelight just like you, working the dive bar circuit again. Me: Ouch. Sorry. Warren: Not your fault. Warren: Shit. Got to go. About to the take the stage at a honkey-tonk in Nashville. This should be interesting. We don’t play country. Me: All right. Warren: Okay if I text you again? Me: Thumbs up. Warren: Did you just text me the words: thumbs up? Me: Yep. My emoji button is broken. Sad face. Warren: Okay then. Me: Okay.

“Mae,” Bella whispered as I walked from the changing room and stood on the elevated plinth opposite my friends and sisters. The mirror was behind me, but I did not yet dare look at my reflection. I glanced at Bella sat beside Ruth, her mother-in-law and Rider’s mama. Her eyes were filling with tears as she stared at me. Her hands were in front of her mouth.
“Do you like it?” I ran my hand over my pronounced stomach.
Bella nodded. “You are perfect,” she whispered. Ruth nodded in agreement.
I looked at Maddie. “Madds?”
She smiled warmly. “You are beautiful, Mae, this dress only enhances that. But this gown could not suit you more if you tried.”
“Styx will love it,” Lilah said and held Grace tighter on her lap.
“You look like a Disney princess,” Grace said.
A hand came down on my arm. I turned to see Beauty behind me. “You ever gonna look in the mirror, darlin’?” She smiled. This boutique belonged to a friend of Beauty’s, and Beauty had practically organized my wedding for me. I was clueless where to even begin.
“You look good, Mae.” I smiled at Letti as she sat uncomfortably on the couch. She had told me she was here to support me, but she had no opinion in such matters as wedding dress shopping. Or anything girly, she’d said affectionately.
“Turn, honey,” Lilah said and I nodded my head. I had no idea why I was so nervous. I knew that Styx loved me and I loved him. I felt as though I had been waiting for this day my whole life. That I had been waiting for the day I finally cemented him as mine. Forever mine, and me forever his.
Closing my eyes, I turned, allowing Beauty to guide me. “You ready?” she whispered. I pulled up the image of Styx in my mind. Me in his arms as we lay in bed. His large tattooed arms holding me close as we spoke. His voice gruff and deep. Then I pictured us laughing. The infamous Hangmen Mute of the Hades Hangmen, so different with me than with anybody else. To others he was aloof, silent, and menacing. But to me, he was loving, caring, and the most beautiful soul in the world.
The other half of my heart.
