The Marriage Plan, an all-new contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author J.S. Cooper is coming March 28th, 2019

Cover Designer: Anna Crosswell

The Marriage Plan eBook.jpg

“I bet I can get married before you, Eloise Sanders.” That was the challenge that my best friend, Bryce Hawkins drunkenly issued to me on the evening of the day I’d moved in and become his roommate and told him that I had a plan to get married within two years.

Bryce has been my best friend since Kindergarten and we’ve both suffered through each others crazy relationships. In a nut shell, we both suck at love. However, now that I’m back from teaching English abroad, I’m ready to focus on meeting my Mr. Right. Only Bryce doesn’t believe that I have what it takes to be in a long-term relationship and I’m so ready to prove him wrong.

I’ve always known that Bryce is a womanizer; with what seems like a different woman every month, so I’ve no worry that I will win the bet. But things in our friendship have started to get weird: seeing him without his shirt on has suddenly made me see him in a different light and sharing his bed to watch movies at night has me thinking naughty thoughts. Not to mention that he’s been oddly confrontational and rude about the dates I’ve been going on.

I want to win the bet, but now I’m wondering if the man I want to marry has been under my nose all along.

Bring Down the Stars and Long Live the Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott

Bring Down the Stars & Long Live the Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott

Thanks, NetGalley for allowing me the opportunity to read and review this duet.

First time reading Emma Scott, I heard a lot about her, and her writing awhile ago but didn’t have the opportunity to read her work until now.  Going in blind is the best way to read a new author.

Based on a play from Cyrano de Bergerac, the story is about a triangle of true friendship, unrequited love, and the power of pretty words and poetry. I can honestly say, I’ve not read enough or understood the prose of poetry. Therefore, I’m not a huge fan of poetry, but in this case, the poetry only adds more romance to the storyline.  Having admitted my lack of knowledge of poetry, I feel inadequate to write a review that will showcase Emma Scott’s talent.   What I can do is try and express how this story has affected me and share some lines from both books which have impacted and left a mark on my soul.  This duet is not for the faint of heart; it pulls heavy on your heart and soul and will leave you wrung out like a dirty dish rag. Yes, it’s that powerful, and that emotional! Highly recommended!

“Feelings,” I said, “are like tonsils. Mostly useless, and occasionally a source of pain and discomfort.”

“Parfois, le cœur se cache derrière l’esprit. Sometimes the heart hides itself behind the mind.”

Sometimes the heart hides itself behind the mind.”

“I worried I would grow up to be trash too, and would hurt any woman I might someday love, so I vowed not to love anyone.”

 “…pretty words weren’t enough without something real behind them,”

“The fight you have to fight is for you so that the love you feel for her has a chance.”

“For you, I would bring down the stars, wreath their fire around your neck like diamonds, and watch them pulse to the beat of your heart.”

“Something good and whole in her spoke to the something rotted and broken in me.” 

“I’m in love with her. The truth was bold and start on the blank page of my heart. I put my pen to paper and began to write.” 

“I have loved you with both Hands tied behind my back Bound with pen and ink Paper and words Sealed with someone else’s name until this moment in which I am nothing but a man who loves a woman. There is nothing left to say Except to give all of my heart For you.”

 “You have a thousand hearts’ worth of love to give. A thousand tears may fall when one heart breaks. But never cry for shame.” He cupped my chin in his thick hand. “Even love lost was well-spent.”

“She’s in love with my soul, he said. And my soul is you.” 

He held my heart in his hands with reverence and care. 
He helped me find my soul’s greatest purpose in life. 
He loved me with a love so pure and vibrant, I knew I’d never feel anything like it in a hundred lifetimes. 
It was real. 

Misadventures of a Curvy Girl

Misadventures of a Curvy Girl by Sierra Simone Release Date: 19th February 2019
Synopsis For the first time in her life, Ireland Mills is happy with her body. No more fad diets, no more hiding from every camera in the room, no more low self-esteem. She’d rather be alone than with someone who’ll only love her if she’s skinny. Caleb Carpenter and Ben Weber are everything Ireland and the Kansas Chamber of Commerce dreamed of when conceptualizing the “Real Kansas” promotional campaign. They’re handsome, young, educated, and totally dedicated to their small prairie town. When Ireland’s Prius gets stuck on a Kansas dirt road and a massive storm rips through town, she’s left stranded with nowhere to turn but to Caleb and Ben. These two hunky country boys are impossible to ignore, but could they ever be interested in her as well? Caleb and Ben are more than interested…and they’re willing to share. After their first night together, they know this has to be more than a one-time thing. They need to make her theirs forever. But can they convince Ireland they love her, curves and all? **** Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.
Meet the Author
Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio).
She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.
Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in a one-room schoolhouse in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order
She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they’re so naughty we don’t talk about them.)
The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and (her very very NSFW) Tumblr. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.

My review:
I adore Sierra Simone, her way of thinking and her writing style. She has an unapologetic way of writing about difficult situations, and sexual preferences; straight, gay, bi-sexual, asexual, etc. She writes about a priest falling in lust, to an American King with his Prince and Queen. All of her characters have one thing in common; they are all flawed humans. With this Misadventure, Sierra deals with bullying and dealing with horrible thoughts of not being enough or being too much. Whether done by others or by self-hating thoughts, actions, or inactions we all seem to have at one point in our lives. As with Ireland, she learns that self-love comes in all shapes and sizes, she recognizes that not all men are attracted to skinny, flat ass women. Yes, Ireland, Caleb, and Ben can love all of you, especially the wobbly bits. Sierra mixes her tales with lots of sexy scenes this is no different or for the faint of heart. These little Misadventure novellas give her readers and followers a quick hit of Sierra! Great read but so much more.

Blurb: I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.

First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.

But women never keep my attention for more than a night.

Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.

When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.

Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.

Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.

And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.

I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.

I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.

This is a stand-alone novel.

 

 

Excerpt: “Did I tell you how beautiful you look tonight?”

For some reason, Landon’s compliment didn’t make me wince the way some men’s comments did. Everything about him was different and it had thrown me off kilter. His warm breath on my neck shouldn’t have made me shiver. He shouldn’t ease the ever-present knot in my stomach or have me wanting to slide my hand into his as we walked. He shouldn’t make me feel safe. “You didn’t.”

“Well, you do. Not that it’s any surprise.”

“Because you’re a gentleman who prefers blondes,” I said, nudging him gently with my elbow, trying to lighten the mood.

He pulled in a breath and scraped his hand through his hair. “I’m beginning to think I’m a man who just prefers you.”

I focused on the cobbled street in front of us. “Me?” Had I been mistaken about the ex-girlfriend in town or the girl on Tinder? I tried to hold my breath to ensure I heard his reply.

“Yeah, you. I like you. More and more.”

My stomach swooped, and I tried to think of a response. My head was telling me to run. Far away. I didn’t want to fall for anyone. I’d worked hard to stay single all these years—to keep away from temptation. But now, temptation right in front of me, I found myself rooted to the spot, wanting to know what was next. “Okay.”

“Okay?” he asked.

I nodded, unsure of what to say. Unsure of how I felt. I knew I found Landon attractive.

I knew I liked him too. But I also knew that I’d been single all these years for a reason.

He wrapped his large hand around my upper arm to steady me when I stumbled over a loose cobblestone. We stopped, and I looked up at him as he swept his thumb across my cheekbone. “I’m only going to ask you this once, and you don’t have to decide now, but stay with me tonight?”

“Landon . . .” Somehow, I couldn’t say no to him, even though I knew I shouldn’t say yes.

“Think about it.”

My review:
What happens when an alfa male come into contact with a beautiful woman? The usual I suspect. However, Skylar Andersen has seen some pretty boys before, and she is not falling for the act. Skylar is out to find her dreams on her terms. What can change her mind? Landon Wolf has been a special agent specialist for his country, has owned his security business and has never fallen for a woman that is until he meets his match at a bar. It’s a fun, flirty read getting us primed for more interesting characters down the line. 

The Son & his Hope by Pepper Winters

While this book is a complete stand-alone, my suggestion is to read The Ribbon Duet first to get the most from this experience. Yes, reading this novel is an experience. If you are familiar with Pepper Winters work, you know that your emotions will be all over the place. Ms. Winters has a way of writing that sucks you into her world. A world in which her characters come alive, and you are watching from the sidelines unable to do anything but experience what she has created for us, her lucky readers. 

Jacob Ren Wild’s story, the one in which he is trying to survive without his beloved father to help guide him through life. One in which he suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Pepper Winters’ has outlined the book into three parts. 

The first part is always the introduction. Here we learn about Jacob as a young boy when his parent’s story becomes a motion picture movie. Where Jacob meets Hope, the young girl who changes his life by becoming his non-friend, they have one thing in common, they both have suffered the loss of a parent. 
The next part covers his early twenties, and more traumatic events occur more heartbreak and suffering, onto the last part where he travels to try and find his solace and peace. 

From the beginning of the duet to now this love story is unlike any other ever told, it’s unique, soulful, hopeful, and tragic. Well Done, highly recommended.

The Son & his Hope by Pepper Winters

The Son and His Hope, a sweeping standalone from New York Times Bestselling author Pepper Winters is live!

“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:

I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.

I am happy being alone.

And that is all I ever want to be.”

JACOB

The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.

It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.

That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.

And nothing and no one could change his mind.

HOPE

I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.

He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.

I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of sorrow that made me want to hug and heal him.

I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.

We shared similarities.

I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.

But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.

He stayed true to his vow to never fall.
