Release Blitz: Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

BeautifulMistake_FrontCoverBeautiful Mistake is LIVE!

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.

Oops. My mistake.

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…

Add to Goodreads

***This is the sixth book in the series. First five books must be read in order to fully understand this story line.***

The king in my world fell and a new one slid into place.
He wasn’t just.
He wasn’t FAIR.
He was cruel and hateful and twisted.

But I had this black king figured out.
Or so I thought.

The game became complicated because my black king had some new moves and one of those involved my heart. Hope trickled in for the briefest of moments.

That is, until my black king and my heart sided against me. Those two didn’t play FAIR. They used me as their pawn in a bigger game—a game I didn’t know how to play.

The laws changed. I didn’t play by their rules anymore, for the queen makes up her own.

I am not a pawn.
I am not theirs to use and abuse.
I belong to nobody.

There are new players on the board and they don’t play FAIR either. But the white king does know how to treat his queen. And together, they will make them pay.

All’s FAIR in love and war, right?
Definitely not this time.

***Warning***
This Isn’t Fair, Baby is a dark romance. Extreme sexual themes and violence, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to dark themes, then this story is not for you.

The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry

TGoUPages: 369

Goodreads Rating: 4.53 / 5 stars

My Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: April 13th 2017

Publisher: BCherry Books

Summary (Goodreads):

Graham Russell and I weren’t made for one another.

I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed.

Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other’s secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears, and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.

Those seconds left us floating, but when reality knocked us sideways, gravity forced us to descend.

Graham Russell wasn’t a man who knew how to love, and I wasn’t a woman who knew how to either. Yet if I had the chance to fall again, I’d fall with him forever.

Even if we were destined to crash against solid ground.

The Silent Waters by Brittainy C. Cherry

TSWPages: 316

Goodreads Rating: 4.41 / 5 stars

My Rating: 5 / 5 stars

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: September 22nd 2016

Publisher: BCherry Books

 

Summary (Goodreads):

Moments.

Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday’s hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow’s promises.

I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.

I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.

This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.

Of moments.

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Hate to Love Ships

This weekly meme is hosted by Lainey of Ginger Reads Lainey and Sam of Thoughts on Tomes. You can check out the weekly topics on Top 5 Wednesday – Goodreads Page. The topic for this week is Hate to Love Ships. This is my favorite topic this month because I enjoy reading Hate to Love romance and sometimes they get on my nerves. It’s my guilty pleasure kind of books.

Here are my Top 5 Hate to Love Ships:

KTS

  • Connor Cobalt and Rose Calloway from Kiss the Sky by Krista and Becca Ritchie – These two started off as rivals, both are intelligent and competitive on everything and guys, their love story OMFG OFF THE CHARTS AMAZING. COBALLOWAY IS RELATIONSHIP FUCKING GOALS. If I want to be a book character for a day, I want to be Rose Calloway so I can have Connor Cobalt.

thg

  • Joshua Templeman and Lucy Hutton from The Hating Game by Sally Thorne – I’ve read this book early this year and I absolutely love this office romance as our protagonists hate each other and constantly throw witty banters. It’s so funny, entertaining and effin’ adorable.

herrro

  • Caine Carraway and Alexa Holland from Hero by Samantha Young –  Aside from On Dublin Street, this is one of my favorite hate-to-love romance by Samantha Young. I love Alexa for always pushing Caine’s buttons and damn… SEXUAL TENSION EVERYWHERE. This book has a family drama and there’s a reason why Caine is a jerk at times. He’s quite hot and cold.

 

BULLY

  • Jared Trent and Tatum Brandt from Bully by Penelope Douglas – When it comes to hate-love romance, Penelope Douglas’s books are a must try. This is a story of childhood best friends who fell apart as Jared starts hating Tate when he came back from a vacation. Tate doesn’t know why he hates her and it went on for years. Both characters hurt each other and somehow make up for the lost time as Tate seeks answers from him. Bully is told in Tate’s POV and if you’re curious on Jared’s POV, I recommend Until You.

PP

  • Reed Royal and Elle Harper from Paper Princess by Erin Watt –  I am addicted with this book / series. If you love Hana Yori Dango / Boys Over Flowers / Meteor Garden then you are going to love this book. Hands down to Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick!

Who are your favorite hate to love ships? Feel free to share it on the comments or link your T5W post!

The Fire Between High & Lo by Brittainy C. Cherry

TFBHLPages: 324

Goodreads Rating: 4.14 / 5 stars

My Rating: 4 / 5 stars

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: March 25th 2016

Publisher: BCherry Books

 

Summary (Goodreads):

There once was a boy, and I loved him.

Logan Francis Silverstone was the complete opposite of me. I danced while he stood still. He was quiet, and I was always running my mouth. He struggled to find a smile while I refused to frown.

The night I saw the darkness that truly lived inside of him, I couldn’t look away.

We were broken together, yet somehow whole. We were wrong together, but always right. We were the stars that burned across the night sky, searching for a wish, praying for better tomorrows.

Until the day I lost him. He threw us away with one hasty decision—a decision that changed us forever.

There once was a boy, and I loved him.

And for a few breaths, a few whispers, a few moments, I think he loved me, too.

Cover Reveal: Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Dear Bridget, I Want You

by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: September 18th 2017

BLURB [Add the book to Goodreads ]

Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.

No questions asked.

Think about it.

Or don’t.

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

The Air He Breathes by Brittainy C. Cherry

TAHBPages: 308

Goodreads Rating: 4.22 / 5 stars

My Rating: 5 / 5 stars

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: September 15th 2015

Publisher: BCherry Books

Summary (Goodreads):

I was warned about Tristan Cole. “Stay away from him,” people said. “He’s cruel.” “He’s cold.” “He’s damaged.”

It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster. But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him, because it also lived inside of me.

We were both empty. We were both looking for something else. Something more. We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays. Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.
