Feature and Giveaway: Wanderlust by Roni Loren

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Loving on the Edge series and Off the Clock, a story of sex, love, rock & roll, and a reporter who’s about to learn a new meaning for staying on top of her assignment...

Restaurant critic Aubrey Bordelon is never at a loss for words to describe her meals in the fancy restaurants of New Orleans. But after her magazine’s high-profile music reporter falls ill, she finds herself out of her element and in a sea of screaming fans awaiting Wanderlust’s lead singer, Lex Logan. The sound of his voice gives her goosebumps, and the stage presence of the hard-bodied rock star takes her breath away. So when he pulls her onstage for a sexy stunt, she knows she’s in real trouble.

Lex doesn’t want to pretend that the sparks on stage between him and Aubrey never happened, but it certainly makes the fact that she’s writing a story on his band all the more dangerous. The last thing he needs is some nosy reporter revealing their problems to the world. But the sexy Southern belle doesn’t give up easily, and soon, he’s wondering if the best way to chase her off the story is to coax her into his bed…

ARC Review: Learning to Ride by Erin Knightley

Learning to Ride is exactly what James Patterson is advertising! A quick shot to get you through when you need a hit! You only need to commit to the amount of time it would take you to watch a movie. I finished this in about 2 hours and 15 minutes. Erin Knightley jumps out of her comfort zone to bring us her first contemporary romance.

Madeline is a city girl who is trying to advance her career. She is sent to a small town in Texas in the hopes of acquiring a new branch for her company. The promotion is extremely important to her, so she is absolutely devoted to only her work. After a few weeks in town, She finally decides to have a little fun and goes to the local honky tonk.

Tanner is a former Rodeo rider, and he doesn't want any sort of serious relationship. When he sees Madeline at the Honky Tonk, he thinks she gorgeous and perfect because he doesn't think she is planting any roots. They share a few sexy dances and leave the bar together, wink wink!

Turns out though that Madeline is sticking around and she ends up finding a house to rent. The two agree that a relationship isn't a good idea because of reasons like Madeline's career and Tanner's knowledge of a small town rumor mill. However, they can't fight how drawn they are to each other.

This book was super cute, as all of Erin Knightley's stories are! Erin proves she has a lot of talent up her sleeves now that she is branching off into other romance sub genre's. She also gave a little more intimacy than is her norm. It was extra spicy, but still tasteful.

While my particular preference from Erin Knightley is Regency, this was still a great fast read. I have already recommended it to a couple of friends and my Mom! It's definitely worth a try and its James Patterson approved! That's gotta tell you this author has something special.

ARC Review: Steadfast by Sarina Bowen

Steadfast is the second book in the True North series by Sarina Bowen, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one after I finished the first in the series, Bittersweet. I have been a fan of Sarina's since I first read one of her books, but I have to say that this series is absolutely my favorite from her to date! I am loving this world that she has created and I never want to leave! 

Sophie and Jude loved one another, but one incident changed everything. Jude vowed to stay away after the accident that killed a man and sent him to prison, but now that he is out he is an ex-con and is limited on where he can get a job. Sophie's heart was broken by Jude and she finds herself face to face with the man he has become and how much he has changed. Though no one wants them together, they find it impossible to let go of what they once had as well as the feelings that continue to grow. 

I loved these two! I knew I was going to love Jude's book after reading Bittersweet, but I honestly didn't expect to love it more than the first in the series! My heart broke for these two and all that they had been through. Though I have never experienced anything like they did here, I found that I was so emotionally invested in these characters. I felt a connection not only between Sophie and Jude, but also between them and me as a reader. I just couldn't get enough of them, and the chemistry between them was something really rare and unique. It was something that couldn't be broken, and that undeniable love they had kept me captivated the entire way through this one. 

Steadfast was such an emotional journey, and I will admit that there were some difficult parts to get through here. Reading about Jude and his addiction had me feeling so much, and that wasn't always easy. With that being said though, this story was so worth it and I really loved how things turned out. Sarina Bowen is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors, and I really can't say enough positive things about this series. While this one can be read as a standalone story, I highly recommend this entire series! They are fantastic books and I really think that there is something for everyone here. I already can't wait for the next book in this series and I am looking forward to whatever else Sarina Bowen writes in the future.
