Cover Reveal - ONE NIGHT by Aleatha Romig


Check out the cover for Aleatha Romig's up-coming romance, ONE NIGHT!

Blurb:
One night to remember
Is that too much to desire?
One night for fun, passion, and a chance to remember what it’s like to be a woman.
I’m not looking for love.
There’s a man in my life who loves me with all his heart. He has beautiful blue eyes, is three feet tall, and calls me mommy.
He’s my whole world and I’m his. Fate stole his daddy way too soon.
What would happen if I allowed fate another chance, just for one night?
One night to help a friend
Why did I agree to this?
Blind dates are disasters. If I weren't helping the friend of a friend, I wouldn't go.
I’m not looking for romance, love, or even a one-night stand.
After all, the man my friend knew is gone. I’m no longer the hockey star known for his "pep" on the ice and in the sack. I have a new life, and a new career—a new passion. I’m not looking for more.
When the blind date is a bust, could fate change everything?
One night doesn’t end with a kiss—it begins with one.



All in all, I like it with the exception of that weird ass smile on the models face...
I guess some people will find it cheeky / cute?

Review: My Bachelor by Tess Oliver


About The Book

He was, for lack of a better word, an Adonis, a Greek god of manly perfection.

American hero. Self-made millionaire. All-around badass.

Sealed with a Kiss has never seen a bachelor like Rafe Rockclyffe before. The long haired, motorcycle riding heartthrob is exactly what viewers of the reality show have been waiting for. Twenty beautiful women will compete to win his heart and hand in marriage, a hand he doesn't really want to give.

It was all just a crazy bet . . . The last thing Rafe expected was to fall in love. 



Format
ebook.

Story Length
Full length novel.

POV
First person, alternating between the two main characters.

Triggers?
No.

Background Knowledge Required?
No.

Cliffhanger?
No.

HEA?
Yes.

Infidelity?
No.

Love-Triangle?
No. 

Violence?
No.

What I Liked: 
I liked that Eliot was a hard-working woman with a sensible head on her shoulders.
I liked the easy banter between Eliot and Rafe.
I adored the book cover.

What I Didn't Like: 
Everything was too easy. This should have been angsty. I mean, you're falling in love with a guy who has twenty other women competing for his affections. There should have been tension, jealousy, fireworks... But there was nothing.
On top of that, Rafe was too good to be true and the secondary characters had the depth of  a sheet of paper. 

My Bachelor was an enjoyable enough read but it left me cold. I wasn't routing for Eliot. I didn't want to smack Rafe upside the head. I didn't want to scratch the eyes out of the love rivals. I felt nothing but mild amusement throughout the entire read. 

Other Thoughts:
The book had a lot of potential but it just didn't live up to my expectations. It was too bland when it could have really been something. I'll definitely check out another one of the authors books in the future.

I don't have one! Nothing jumped out at me.

Review Dear Aaron by Marianna Zapata


About The Book

Ruby Santos knew exactly what she was getting herself into when she signed up to write a soldier overseas.
The guidelines were simple: one letter or email a week for the length of his or her deployment. Care packages were optional.
Been there, done that. She thought she knew what to expect.
What she didn’t count on was falling in love with the guy.



Format
ebook.

Story Length
Full length novel.

POV
First person.

Triggers?
No.

Background Knowledge Required?
No.

Cliffhanger?
No.

HEA?
Yes.

Infidelity?
No.

Love-Triangle?
No.

Violence?
No.

What I Liked: 
I liked the way this book was written. 
The first 50% of the book is written as emails and in the format of a messenger app. 
It was unusual but brilliant. 
It made the book feel a little awkward at first, which perfectly captures the feeling of getting to know someone who you’ve never spoken to, have no idea what they look like, and know absolutely nothing about. 
The format meant you got to experience the relationship unfolding without anyone telling you what anyone was thinking or feeling. 
 The pages flew by so quickly, and magic happened. 
You begin to feel like you know these people. 
Like they are friends. 
You learn to read between the lines of their conversation. 
You begin to feel things. 
It is addictive. 

Then, bam! ‘Normal’ first person takes over and you really get inside Ruby’s head and what do you know her thoughts and feelings are perfectly in line with yours. 
You meet Aaron and he’s everything. 
You are so freaking happy for them, because you were taken along with them on their journey rather than just reading it and it’s freakin’ beautiful! 
I’m not kidding when I say that I fell in love with a fictional character here. I really feel like I did. 
The book hangover from this beauty was horrendous.

What I Didn't Like: 
It was too short and that is a laughable statement because Dear Aaron isn’t a short book but I just didn’t want it to end! I wanted MORE! I hated the fact that it ended. Even the awesome epilogue which gave me a glimpse into the happy future of the couple couldn't satisfy me. Yes, it made me happy but imagining it all wasn't enough! I wanted to 'see' it! I wanted to feel it. I needed more. I feel like I’ve been robbed of something important, which is ridiculous but a testament to the awesome writing of this author.

Other Thoughts:
Slow burning romantic perfection… That’s what this book was. Bloody perfection. I loved it. 

Favourite Quotes:

💬

“Sergeant Major to a young soldier: “I didn’t see you at camouflage training this morning, soldier.” 
Soldier: “Thank you very much, sir.” 

💬

“What was love if it wasn’t just a single word people used to try and describe something that wasn’t easily explained or grown in one action or declaration?

About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
