FORMATIVE by Maria Mcdonald is LIVE!

The much anticipated book 3 in the Deliverance Series is finally here. For those who read Dazed and Conflicted, now it’s time to catch up with the group again while following Morgan’s story.



I’m told if you love someone you should let them go. Nobody tells you that doing so will break your soul in half.
My life was easy when I had the college boyfriend who ticked all the right boxes. The night I laid eyes on Enoch Carter everything changed.
I thought I was doing the right thing. Now I know I was wrong. I don’t know how to retrace my steps, how to repair the distance, fix the mess I made.
I never meant to fall in love.

I stayed away because she was off limits. I broke the code, then left her bed without a backward glance.
All the black marks on my heart would make her dirty and I won’t allow that.
Friendship is all I can offer. Even if she doesn’t want my friendship, she needs it now more than ever.
I shouldn’t love her.
I can’t love her.
I won’t.

REVIEW TOUR ~ THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE by Meghan Quinn is now available!

This isn’t a story about a love triangle. There is no triangle involved.

This isn’t a story about an accidental pregnancy. Although having a baby with her . . . I would.

This isn’t a story about lies and deception, even though at times I’ve lied to myself.

No, this is my story.

A story about sacrifice.

A story about a man who fell in love with the wrong girl.

A story I wish I never had to tell.

This is a story about the true meaning of the downside of love.

This is book 2 of The Blue Line duet, a follow up to The Upside of Falling in Love. If you haven’t read the first book I strongly recommend you read that one first or it will feel like eating half a scrummy sandwich or wearing one shoe on and one shoe off, you know what I mean?

As I don’t want to give away any spoilers I won’t mention any names. However, I would like to expand on the heroine’s character and her live-for-this-moment attitude; her life changing decisions and sacrifices for her family, her zeal to pursue the man she wanted to be with shows her strength of character.

“Life is full of chances. Opportunities. Challenges. But it’s what you do with them that counts.” 

The protagonist in this book is a broken shell but hides his inner turmoil with his carefree facade but will he ever find happiness through the woman he always dreamed of or is his psyche too damaged to be fixed?

“The downside of love is heartache and uncertainty, but the upside of falling is finding an everlasting love that will carry you through a lifetime of happiness.” 

I was wrong when I assumed that this would be one of those cookie cutter fluffy romances because this is probably one of the best I have ever read, a tale full of unforgettable heroes with great hearts and minds, selfless and generous to a fault. The author’s words will shatter your heart in one chapter and glue it back together in the next. Told from different points of view, this well written epic love story will make you soar to great heights, it will give you goosebumps and will make you cry. Prepare to be dazzled! I highly recommend this book.

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.

My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

COVER REVEAL ~ BOY TOY by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

 We’re thrilled to share Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby’s fabulous fun cover for their upcoming romantic comedy, releasing 14th August!

PR: Nina Bocci



A new romantic comedy from your favorite snort-laughing duo!

The moment Sadie Matthews walks through the daycare center door, I feel my world tilt in her direction. Again. I fell for her when I was fourteen, and I’m still not over her. Problem: she still thinks of me as a teen she used to babysit. But I’ve learned a few things about pleasing a woman in the last fifteen years. I can’t wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.

I’ve just survived the worst year of my life. As a single mom of twin toddlers, I don’t have time for a man. I barely have time to finish a thought. Who knew that Liam McAllister would grow up to be so devastating? He’s everything my husband was not: tall, built, and willing to have a tea party with my girls. 

I can’t possibly get involved with him. He’s too young for me. Too handsome. But he’s so persuasive…

Other Stand-alone Romantic Comedies
by Sarina & Tanya

He puts the “screw” in screwball comedy…

At thirty-four, I’m reeling from a divorce. I don’t want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn’s Dips and Balls.
But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I’m still taking a hard pass.
Free designer cocktails, they say. And that’s a game-changer.
Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don’t expect me to actually go through with it.

All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life.
I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either—just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them.
But I will find her.

A sexy new stand-alone comedy.

“Look at me.”
I do it, because his tone commands me to.
“Listen, honey bear. I want you. All of you. Right now. But you need to know this: I will hold your purse. I’ll cry while watching Lifetime movies with you. I will shop for shoes. (Nice strappy wedges, by the way. Great color.) I will surrender to you everywhere, except in the bedroom. Tonight I need you to let me take the lead. Can you do that?”
The old Ashley wants to. But the new Ashley knows better than to trust a man. Even one as fascinating as Sebastian Braht…
