Cover Reveal: Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland!

Hey all!
Check it out... The cover for Vi Keeland's next release, SEX, NOT LOVE!

Sex, Not Love is a standalone, contemporary romance, novel releasing on 15th January 2018!

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.  

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s.  Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.  

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter.  Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us.  His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off.  But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room.  The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby.  Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit.  After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time.  So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner.  The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city.  He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems. 

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Every year I tell myself I'm going to indulge in holiday-themed goodness on the reading front and every year I typically read one or two festive books and no more which is just shameful... This year, I'm joining the Caffeinated Reviewer's HoHoHo Readathon in the hopes of kick-starting my festive reading and holiday spirit.

Books I'm Grateful I Read Giveaway Hop!

Happy November book lovers!

Over the years there has been so many books I've been so happy that I have read... So many books that have touched me, made me laugh, made me cry, made me angry and made me think.
 I am grateful that I've read every one of them but some sucker punch you in the gut more than others. 

It's too hard to remember and list every single book that has touched me but the books that have hit the hardest, the books I'm grateful I read but haven't ever been brave enough to re-read, are:

The Boudica Series by Manda Scott

Oh my god!
These books! 
These books...
They destroyed me.
Absolutely friggin' destroyed me.
I don't think I've ever felt such wonder, pain and pleasure as I did reading this series.
Beautifully written chronicling the life of Boudica from the age of 11 or 12 through to the end. The mystical retelling shows the Celts of Britain, pre Roman invasion, through to their veritable destruction.
I know that they're (mostly) fictitious but the characters are so well written that every twist and turn, every defeat, every triumph is your defeat and your triumph. 
They burned themselves onto my psyche and here I am 10/11 years later (from the final book in the series) still awestruck by them but unable to re-read them because I just don't know if I can put myself through that emotional wringer again and I'm also a little afraid that re-reading them would destroy the beauty of them in my memory.

A little bit of blurb from Goodreads that gives a better overview than I can...

"Full of brilliantly realised, luminous scenes as the narrative sweeps effortlessly from the epic--where battle scenes are huge, bloody, and action-packed--to the intimate. Manda Scott plunges us into the unforgettable world of tribal Britain in the years before the Roman invasion: a world of druids and dreamers and the magic of the gods where the natural world is as much a character as any of the people who live within it, a world of warriors who fight for honour as much as victory, a world of passion, courage and spectacular heroism pitched against overwhelming odds. 
Dreaming the Eagle stunningly recreates the roots of a story so powerful its impact has lasted through the ages."
