Add to Goodreads

City girl Calla Fletcher attempts to reconnect with her estranged father, and unwittingly finds herself torn between her desire to return to the bustle of Toronto and a budding relationship with a rugged Alaskan pilot in this masterful new romance from acclaimed author K.A. Tucker.

Calla Fletcher was two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at twenty-six, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when her father reaches out to inform her that his days are numbered, Calla knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born.

She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional—dear God—outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this new subarctic environment, Jonah—the quiet, brooding, and proud Alaskan pilot who keeps her father’s charter plane company operational—can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild.

Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. As time passes, she unexpectedly finds herself forming a bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship—or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried—and failed at—years ago.

It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.

Blog Tour + Review & Giveaway: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting

I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting
Series: Shacking Up #3 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: May 29th 2018
Add to Goodreads

From New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting comes I Flipping Love You, a love story about flipping houses, taking risks, and landing that special someone who’s move-in ready.

Rian Sutter doesn’t usually get hit on in the grocery store, but when she notices a sexy man in a suit checking her out, she thinks maybe it’s her lucky day. Either that or the suit has a thing for sweaty, yoga-pant wearing women with excellent price matching skills.

Turns out it’s neither.

Pierce Whitfield can’t believe his luck when he’s able to track down the woman who scratched up the paint job on his car at the scene of the crime. But when he confronts the hit and run hottie, he discovers there’s not just one, but two of them, and he’s been throwing accusations at the wrong twin.

As repair costs are negotiated, and the chemistry between them flares, Rian and Pierce find out they have more than mutual attraction in common. They’re both vying for the same pieces of prime real estate in The Hamptons and neither one plans to give up without a fight.

Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance—without burning down the house?

I haven’t quite loved the Shacking Up series – until now. I Flipping Love You is definitely my favorite of the series, and the perfect rom-com read for the summer. It’s set in the Hamptons, with a sweet yet hilarious romance I thoroughly enjoyed reading. This book is HGTV meets romance, and Helena Hunting does an incredible job at incorporating the flipping houses aspect with the love story.

I Flipping Love You has one of the best meet-cutes I’ve ever read – mainly because it’s not cute, but hilarious. A gorgeous man in a suit has been checking out Rian at the grocery store, but it turns out he’s been keeping an eye out on her because he thinks she did a scratch-and-run with his car. Fortunately, it wasn’t Rian who scratched his car. Unfortunately, it was her twin sister. What starts off as an already heated relationship sizzles even more as Rian and Pierce handle car troubles and coincidentally reunite in the Hamptons.

Rian and Pierce have a fairly drama-free relationship, and I loved the slow burn aspect of it. Pierce knows what he and Rian have is a once-in-a-lifetime thing, but Rian is hesitant and reluctant. In between Pierce fighting for the woman he’s falling for, we get lots of home renovation talk, hilarious one-liners, and the gorgeous setting of the Hamptons. This book honestly made me want to be relaxing by a pool, it has such a summer vibe. I highly recommend this one if you’re in the mood for something light-hearted and fun this summer.

“I promise I’ll take good care of your heart, Rian. And I promise it’ll get easier if you keep saying it.” He kisses me again, whispering against my lips. “I love you.”

When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?

Welcome to today’s stop on the blog tour for Death Doesn’t Bargain by Sherrilyn Kenyon!

Deadmen Walking by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Series: Deadman’s Cross #2 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: May 8th 2018
Add to Goodreads

Death Doesn’t Bargain is the second historical fantasy title in New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Deadman’s Cross series. Where Deadmen tell their tales, and every soul is damned or redeemed by the final choices they make.

The Deadmen are back…

But so are the demons who have broken free of their eternal prison and are bent on mankind’s destruction. The worst of the lot is Vine, determined to claim their lives for taking hers. She will see the world burn…and has the perfect lure to destroy them all. One of their own.

Kalder Dupree has never known a day of mercy. Born to the cruelest of mer-races, he sacrificed himself for his crew and is in Vine’s hands. He expects no mercy or rescue.

Yet Cameron Jack is determined to set Kalder free. As a Hellchaser, it’s her calling, and she cannot allow even a not-so-innocent to be tortured for an act of kindness that spared her damnation.

To defeat evil, it sometimes takes an even worse evil, and Cameron is willing to do whatever she must to make this right. If Vine thought she had her hands full before, she hasn’t seen anything nearly as powerful as Cameron’s resolve.

The second installment in the Deadman’s Cross series is jam-packed with action and drama. You’ll definitely need to have read the first book, Deadmen Walking, before starting this one, as it continues with Cameron Jack, Kalder Dupree, Devyl Bane, and Vine. We get to delve deeper into this historical fantasy world Sherrilyn Kenyon has created, learning more about the pirates, demons, and monsters that inhabit the seas. If you enjoyed the first Deadman’s Cross book, you’ll want to get your hands on this great sequel.

After losing Kalder, the Deadmen are determined to find and get back his soul. He’d sacrificed himself to save Cameron and her brother – and now Cameron wants to set Kalder free. They are our main couple, and their romance is just as intriguing to read as the action part of the plot. They’ve got plenty of demons in their past that they need to overcome in order to be together, and those demons don’t make it easy. We learn much more about the history of Kalder’s Myrcian heritage, with plenty of plot twists to keep the action going. There really wasn’t a dull moment in Death Doesn’t Bargain.

I’m amazed at the world SK has created with this series. Yes, there’s a lot of info dumping, but once you get into the groove of reading, you get a better understanding of the mythology behind this world. Now, I haven’t read SK’s other popular Dark-Hunter series, but fans of DH will definitely love seeing a surprise cameo of Acheron in this book. I know there is also a lot of overlap between the DW and DH series, so you’re sure to catch that if you read both series!

Pirates, magic, mythology, romance, and action – is there more you can ask for in a historical fantasy? If you’re interested in the genre, this series is definitely one to check out. I can’t say that I’ve ever read anything quite like it! The book ends in quite the cliffhanger, but I’m excited to see where SK will take us with the next installment.

I honestly wasn’t expecting to enjoy – LOVE – The Greatest Risk as much as I did. I love KA but the first Honey book just wasn’t for me and I had to DNF it. I thought I had given up on the series but I couldn’t resist the chance to read KA one more time – and I am SO glad that I read this one. I was swept away by Stellan and Sixx’s story. If you know KA, then you know her books are long-winded, but with TGR, I couldn’t stop flipping the pages to see what would happen next for this fascinating couple. This book won’t be for everyone – it’s erotica/BDSM, but if you’re looking for something that’s unique and outside the box, I highly recommend this one.

“Undeniably mine,” he stated the answer she refused to say. Then he went in for the kill. “Forever, sweetheart.”

Sixx is known as the Ice Princess of The Honey. She’s a badass Mistress that doesn’t let anyone into her heart. She’s got demons and scars from her past, and she’s not about to let them hurt anyone she grows to care for, and certainly not the man she wants but can’t have. But when the man who will become her everything sets his sights on Sixx, there is no way to protect her heart from the onslaught that is Stellan Lange.

“Sweet pussy is worth any hassle. But to earn the attention of a queen . . .” He curled his hand around her jaw and used it to force her to look at him. The touch was dominant, but gentle, and achingly sweet, and when he caught her eyes, he concluded, speaking every word in a way each was laced with steel, “I. Will. Do. Anything.”

I love a good alpha male, and if there’s one thing KA is known for, it’s her alpha males. Now sometimes, they can get a little domineering and overbearing, but Stellan was absolute perfection. I adored Stellan and his determination to win the heart and love of the Ice Princess. He is kind and caring when it comes to Sixx’s heartbreaking backstory, but can be ruthless when it comes to protecting those he loves. He is the perfect Dom for Sixx, capable of handling her need to switch and submit. He’s all in for his queen right from the start, and I loved every minute of him building them the perfect life he knows they are meant to have.

“Be strong for the world, darling, if that’s what you need to be. But here, with me, you can be whatever you care to be.”

I went into The Greatest Risk essentially as a standalone, but I am definitely thinking about going back and trying this series from the beginning again. Sixx and Stellan’s romance held me captivated, their journey towards happiness as beautiful as it is heart-wrenching. My one complaint is that I do wish that the book could’ve explored more of Sixx and her being a switch. I felt like this aspect of her was a bit glossed over when it came to her and Stellan’s relationship, because with him, he was her Master, she was his sub and not a Mistress. But the chemistry itself in this book was a glorious thing. KA knows how to write steam, and she brings her A-game in TGR.

If you’re a fan of the author, I definitely urge you to read this book. I really enjoyed the way KA explored a BDSM relationship between two Doms. She gives her own unique take on the lifestyle, and I’m glad to have read it. I really hope we will be getting more Honey books after this!
