Alicia Michaels needs a major career reboot, so she’s got no time for romance. But starting over in Atlanta is an uphill battle for the cautious PR rep—especially after she teams up with wealthy Richmond Crawford on a make-or-break project. For one thing, the risk-taking entrepreneur is nothing like the staid businessman he used to be. For another, she and Richmond can’t see eye-to-eye on anything—except that the reckless attraction between them is sizzling, off-the-charts trouble . . . Playing by the rules got Richmond betrayal from his rich family—and shattering heartbreak. He’s got to prove he can be his own man, so keeping things strictly-business with Alicia is the smart play. Still, even their conflicts only make Richmond want more of her honesty and courage. But a shocking revelation will endanger everything they’re fighting to build. And making things right could be the final deal breaker . . .

Today, I want to talk about why I try new to me authors. Every week, there are so many new books out and pretty much every week I buy new books. I don’t only buy books from authors that I love (although that is a high percentage of my new purchases) so what else do I look at before I buy a book? It kinda goes in this order.. Reviews This is mainly reviews of people I trust. They don’t even have to have the same taste in books as me because I just know how their taste correlates to mine. Twitter and GR are the places I go to look for reviews of books that have caught my eye. Covers I know the old saying is “never judge a book by a cover”, but I do. For me, the cover is an advert for the book so if there is no effort in the cover (bad spelling, dodgy photoshopping etc…) I don’t assume there is any effort in… Keep Reading »

Book #2 in explosive new series from bestselling author Kit Rocha… Ana has trained most of her life to achieve one goal: to prove that anything men can do, she can do better. Now she’s Sector One’s first female Rider, and being the best is the only way to ensure she won’t be its last.

The passion sparking between them can’t be denied, but neither can the vengeance barreling toward Deacon. When his old… Keep Reading »

Over the years, I’ve picked up many tips and tricks. Some I wish I’d known sooner and so I’m going to pass on the love. Bloggers, feel free to add your own additions in the comments below; the more the merrier! Authors are not your friends. This one is the hardest to deal with. Authors are business people and the majority of them will deal with you, the blogger, in a professional capacity. They will be lovely and friendly but please don’t read more into it. FTC regulations are not there for fun. I’m fucking deadly serious on this one. No, I don’t give a flying fuck if you are international you need to still do it if you are targetting US readership. Declare where you got the product you are reviewing, declare if you have any relationship with the company that produces them and you better damn declare if you receive any money for reviews. Picture copyright means you can’t just put any picture on your site… Keep Reading »

HELL HATH NO FURY . . . For five thousand years, Revenant believed he was alone in the world, a fallen angel beyond any redemption. Now he finds he has a twin brother who had all the light and love Revenant was denied.

Designed to be read in an hour or two, these sex-filled microromances are guaranteed to pack a punch and deliver a happily-ever-after. A new supersexy insta-love novella from USA TODAY bestselling author Jenika Snow that has a gruff lumberjack yelling T-I-M-B-E-R for the woman he’s been waiting for. The Ash Brothers—they know how to handle their wood. I’m a hard man. A loner. Or so town gossip says. After having my heart sent through the chipper, I’ve kept to myself.

Well, as I’ve said, on a Tuesday, I will be posting book-related talk here on Scorching Book Reviews. This could be from me, an author, another blogger or a reader. If you want to get involved, DM/email me 🙂 Today, you get to read stuff from me!! 🙂 I want to start with something that has been bugging me of late about blogging. Now, I’ve been blogging for around 8 years (I am an old timer in this game) and the landscape has changed dramatically. Some things I really enjoyed being part of are gone and the one thing I’m going to focus on is blog-hop memes. Now, maybe I’m just missing them all but I can’t seem to find many outside of YA anymore and that saddens me. I love talking to fellow bloggers on twitter (I’m barred from FB as I’m not a real person :D) but it doesn’t necessarily mean I visit their site and see all the hard work they’ve put in. Blog Hop… Keep Reading »
