BnB Spotlight: Holley Trents Saving Soren

Happy Monday and all that! lols. Ya'll please welcome Holley Trent to the blog today. She has a series that is coming to an end and is celebrating with BBR. Check out the post below and be sure to enter AND spread the word about the awesome goodies she is offering! 

Celebrate the Shrew & Company Finale with Holley Trent

When I launched the Shrew & Company series four years ago, I wanted to create a paranormal story world where women some readers would initially consider to be unlikeable would have equal opportunities for true love. And I didn’t want their partners to “fix” them as part of their journey.

At the end of each Shrew & Company story, the heroines are the same intense, passionate, often-acerbic ladies they started out as. They simply landed partners who happen to like them that way.

The final installment in the series, Saving Soren, is a bittersweet (for me) goodbye to the series. It features the persistent Romanian bear shifter Soren Ursu and his resistant fated mate, a natural witch named Marcella Bailey who hails from Jamaica. They get paired up to search for a rogue drug industry executive. Of course, while they’re on the road, shenanigans ensue.

To celebrate the launch of the book—and the conclusion of the Shrew & Company story arc—I’ve put together a special prize pack one lucky US entrant can win.

This fun Saving Soren-themed gift box includes: a wooden friendship plaque, a “flawless” zip pouch, smoked sea salt (there are two jokes there you might catch if you’ve already read the book), tropical flavor Jelly Belly candy, a “Never Give Up” water bottle, Pair of Thieves crew socks, a fruity-smelling “You are my unicorn” candle, a journal for potty mouths, and a black mesh beach tote.

In addition to the gift box, another entrant will win the full Shrew & Company ebook collection.

Entering is easy—just use the Rafflecopter widget below and be sure to leave your answer in the comments section of this post. Contest closes August 13th. Good luck!

Saving Soren is available at all major ebook retailers.

Review: Seducing Abby Rhodes by J. D. Mason

Source: NetGalley | Format: Mobi | Published: July 18, 2017 | Series: (IDK) | Genre: Womens Fiction, African American Romance | J.D. Mason | Available: BN--Amazon--+Goodreads

Seducing Abby Rhodes returns us to Blink Texas where the two main characters have to deal with not only their own s**t but they have to deal with ghosts from the past.

Abby has bought a house in Blink and when she finds out that its haunted by the ghosts of its previous residence, she possibly having second thoughts. She attempts to seek help from her local spiritual guide but things get really interesting once Jordan Gateway walks his big ol handsome chocolate self up in her house and life.

Abby just wants to get this house together without any issues from her "guests" and Jordan Gateway is a distraction she doesn't need or does she? Jordan has his own problems and they just don't involve Abby's little house. He has a bit of a stalker which I definitely feel he could have nixed that mess if he had just handled it correctly but when do men ever handle things correctly when it comes to the women in their lives? *sucks teeth*.

Anyhoo's, I love that the author continuously adds different elements of genres (murder, paranormal and romance) to these stories. Abby Rhodes was a story with depth and relatable characters. There are a barrage of characters and the story is a bit murky at times but once you get yourself settled, the  plot is easy to follow.

You know what, I really like this series so far and I'm looking forward to see what else Ms. Mason and Blink Texas has to offer because man let me tell you, drama chile...drama!

*Thanks Netgalley & the Publisher for the opportunity to review.

Grown ass woman, Mother, reader, drinker of the red wines, not so serious makeup enthusiast and finally...a habitual procrastinator. I read just about everything but I really do love my romances. HEA’s are optional because hell sometimes, Prince Charming really is just a frog. Don’t asked if I finished *that book* yet...because I didn’t.

BnB Spotlights: Kim Golden's Maybe Baby Series

Ya'll please welcome Kim Golden to the blog. Now, I've been sitting on this series for a minute (and for no paticular reason), reading sometimes falls behind my lackluster crazy life, lols. But I hear this is bomb ass series and is quite good so I'll be picking it up soon. But until I can wow ya'll with my review, enjoy this spotlight and Maybe pick up on new series to try Baby. 
See what I did there? lols 

It started with a kiss…

(Books 1-3: Maybe Baby, Maybe Tonight and Maybe Forever)
Laney Halliwell has an Instagram-perfect life in Stockholm most people would covet— a great job, a stunning apartment in one of the trendiest districts in the city and a very handsome partner in Niklas. But something is missing. Laney wants a baby, but  Niklas has already made sure that it isn’t an option. An alternative solution sends Laney to Copenhagen, Denmark where what starts off as an innocent introduction leads to something more with Mads. And Laney realizes that what she has in Stockholm with Niklas isn’t enough to keep her from crossing a forbidden line.

No such thing as love…

(Book 4: Maybe Tomorrow)

Eddy and Henrik don’t believe in love. At least, that’s what they keep telling themselves. They’ve been burned in the past, and neither wants to be that vulnerable again. Midsummer’s Eve changed all of that. It was only supposed to be a summer fling, so why can’t they stop thinking about one another? And for Eddy—who’s moving back to America in a few weeks—the worst thing that could happen would be to fall in love with the one man who could make her question her decision. And Henrik’s out of his comfort zone. He never counted on trusting love again. He’s put all his energy into his career. So why does the thought of Eddy leaving Europe for good make him want to do everything in his power to make her want to stay…?

The Maybe… series is about the things we do for love. From Laney and Mads’s unconventional meeting and the fallout that follows to love cynics Eddy and Henrik’s steamy Midsummer encounter and the games people play when their hearts are at stake.
