Blurb:
Dylan Walker has spent six years trying to move on from the loss of his girlfriend, Presley Cooper. Motivated by grief and the desire to do for others what he couldn’t do for her, he burns the candle at both ends to make it through medical school. After graduation he moves west, putting as much distance as possible between his past and his present.
Or so he thought.
Unknowingly, Dylan has been set on a path that will destroy everything he thought he knew. All the pain, all the grief, was all for nothing. With the help of an unexpected ally, Dylan must find the answers and save the girl he loves before it’s too late.
Deceit.
Betrayal.
Revenge.
A second chance at love.
But first, he must find a way to make her remember her past. Remember him. Remember everything.

Review of Flutter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
4.5 - 5 - In Flutter, Olivia Evans spins a wicked web of intrigue, layered with intense plot twists and turns. You need to go into this book blind and expect a wild ride on a crazy train of emotions. I didn’t expect this! This romantic suspense story made my heart flutter. This unputdownable story is one-click worthy.

Excerpt:
“I must admit, I’ve only had a few residents in all my years here who have pushed themselves as hard as you, for no other reason than sheer determination. I can’t help but wonder why that is.”

Dylan fell into step with Dr. Edmonds as they walked toward the first set of doors. He licked his lips and averted his gaze. He wasn’t sure he liked the direction of the conversation. “What do you mean?” he asked as Dr. Edmonds swiped his badge across the security panel. The light flashed green, and a second later a buzzer sounded as the door locks disengaged.

“You’re not doing this out of necessity. Dr. Burton is a friend of mine as well, you know?”

Dr. Burton. Dylan’s grandmother’s doctor friend who’d referred Dylan to Grace and Dr. Edmonds. He was now certain he didn’t like the direction of the conversation. Dylan cleared his throat. “I assumed you two must have known each other in some capacity for him to refer me to you.”

Dr. Edmonds nodded. “Yes. We’re old friends. I’ve also met your grandmother, Ann, a time or two. Very smart lady. Full of spunk too,” he chuckled.

Dylan cracked a smile. “That she is.”

“My point is,” Dr. Edmonds said, not straying from his line of questioning. “I’m aware that your family is quite wealthy. So, whereas the other residents are driven by money to work such brutal hours, I would bet that’s not the case with you. Now, I could be wrong, of course, but in my professional opinion,” he added with a quirk of his lips. “Your desire to push yourself so hard comes from another place entirely. As your mentor, I should know what that is.”
For a moment, Dylan didn’t speak. He weighed his options about just how much he should reveal before releasing a heavy breath and looking Dr. Edmonds in the eye. “Why did you become a psychiatrist?”

Dylan watched as understanding colored Dr. Edmonds’s face, and a sad smile caused the lines around his mouth to deepen. It was a common theory that most doctors became psychiatrists to deal with their own issues. For Dylan, and, it seemed, Dr. Edmonds as well, that theory was more of a reality.

“We all have our reasons, I suppose,” Dr. Edmonds conceded. “I just need to know that yours aren’t going to jeopardize the treatment of a patient.”

Dylan straightened his shoulders, the motion making his lean runner’s body seem wider, more imposing. “I only want to help. I want to help people see their worth, understand that they have options.”

“Apart from what?”

Dylan’s neutral expression masked the turmoil swirling inside his chest as he released the answer in a choked exhale. “Death.”

COVER REVEAL: Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward

I NEED THIS BOOK NOW! Check out the cover and synopsis for Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward.




DRUNK DIAL
(A standalone)
Release date: 8/21/2017

A Contemporary Romance Novel

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author 
Penelope Ward 


Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him. 

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions. 

I didn’t think he’d call me back. 

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become. 

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.  

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

About HARD WOOD:

Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.

That’s why I’m quite a catch— good, hard, loaded, and wait for it…I’m ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with is precisely the one I need to stay far away from.

After that fantastic night with Mia Summers, I’m ready to give her many more. But there’s a hitch in my plans — she just hired my company. If there’s one thing I’m committed to, it’s running a squeaky clean adventure tour business. One of the iron-clad rules?

Don’t screw your customers.

I can follow my own guidelines. After all, it’s only a week-long trip with Mia and her employees over the trails and down the hills I guide them on. I can obey the rules—even if it’s hard in the woods.

I’m about to give myself a badge of honor when the storm of the century hits, sending everyone else running for cover, but us—my biggest temptation and me, alone for a long weekend. You don’t screw the client, especially when you’re already in love with her . . .

But what’s a guy to do when she’s so hard to resist?

NEW RELEASE REVIEW: Hard Love by Joanne Schwehm

Check out my review of Hard Love by Joanne Schwehm. 
Kindle Crack Book Reviews
Title: Hard Love
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Author: Joanne Schwehm
Release Date: July 18, 2017

Blurb:
Noah Winston’s life was perfect. He had it all: striking looks, more money than he could ever spend, good friends, and any woman he wanted. 

Margo Perry’s life wasn’t perfect, but it was her own. She didn’t need a man to make her happy or feel better about herself. 

Then he saw her – a gorgeous, rain-soaked stranger – but she wasn’t a stranger at all. They’d known each other a lifetime ago, when she was just a girl. Now, she was all woman.

Then it happened. The man she had spent her teenage years lusting over rescued her on a bleak yet fateful day. There he was, straight out of her dreams, looking better now than he had years ago.

The more time he spent with her, the more he questioned everything he knew.

The more time she spent with him, the more those old feelings resurfaced and grew stronger.

Too bad it only took one night, a few words, and a terrible decision, to ruin it all.

Too bad it was too good to be true.

Review of Hard Love
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
4.5 - A chance encounter allows Margo to see her Noah, childhood crush. While Margo is super independent and strong, she is also insecure about her relationship with Noah. Noah adores Margo, but he is dead set on staying a bachelor. He finally has it all, until he loses the one-thing that matters. Will their insecurities and preconceived notions about relationships kill their chances of finding happiness?

Hard Love is a straight up, second chance romance with likable characters, and a plot that is not fueled by drama. The characters’ chemistry and relatable relationship issues made this book unputdownable. Hard Love was an easy read. One-click worthy.

What Others Are Saying:
True to the title, love is hard. It's fragile and delicate, and how you come through in the end is what makes the journey worth it. Hard Love takes you on just that kind of journey. A must read. A.M.Madden, USA Today Bestselling Author

I love conflict and stomach plummeting moments. This one checks off all my boxes! - Lisa Kane, Three Chicks and Their Books

It's been awhile since I read a book in one sitting, but once I started Hard Love, I couldn't put it down. Margo and Noah's story was sweet, hot, romantic, heart-breaking and absolute perfection. Tara Sivec,  USA Today Bestselling Author.

The author took me on a journey from past to present, from lust to love, and from want to need. Rosa Sharon, iScream Book Blog

I found myself thinking about this book when I had to put it down. I was consumed immediately with this story. I love the storyline. I love these two together. Karie Puskas, Panty Dropping Book Blog

I just couldn't put it down. And that's the magic of a good book, it will wrap you up in the story and the characters and it will hypnotize you until the point you become one with them. Janett, The Pleasure of Reading Book Blog
