REVIEW TOUR: Miss Mechanic by Emma Hart







Two mechanics. One rivalry.
She’ll prove she’s as good as she says she is.
He’ll prove her place isn’t under the hood.
It’s over it.

“Don’t let the bastards get you down.” 


For twenty-six years, I lived by my daddy’s motto. Which is why “Mechanic Wanted” is all it takes for me to apply for the job at the garage we once owned.

And I meet the biggest bastard of them all.

Dexter Ryne. Hotter than Hell in July and a firm believer that my place is on reception, taking phone calls and looking pretty. Not getting dirty under the hood of a car.

Determined to prove each other wrong, we make a deal.

I have three weeks to prove my worth as a mechanic. If I don’t, I’m on telephone duty.

If I do, he’ll accept defeat and make my job permanent.

Now, all I have to do is fight my attraction to the cocky little… beep.

Problem is, an engine isn’t the only thing he knows how to make purr…





 




My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

Jamie needs a job. Her father had to sell the family business and now her mechanic skills are going to waste. When the opportunity arises to get a job at the garage her father sold, she doesn't jump at the opportunity, but she knows it is one that she needs to do. Then she meets Dex. His family now owns the garage and he doesn't want to hire a woman. But Jamie won't take no for an answer. She frustrates him to the point that he agrees to a three week try out. Dex and Jamie are like oil and water and they can barely go a few minutes without going at each other. And I don't mean the sexy way. At least at first. 

If there is one thing I absolutely LOVE in a book, it is banter. Excellent banter that starts as a fun way for characters to interact that turns into foreplay. And this book had A LOT of that. Whew. Jamie and Dex fight, but it is all leading up to a ridiculously hot encounter that changes everything between them. 

I really enjoyed this book. I laughed out loud numerous times thanks to Dex's family. Every single one of them, especially his niece, knew exactly how to put the arrogant man in his place when he need it. Which was quite often. And he was smart enough to listen to them. 


EXCERPT

“Can I help you?” I asked. 

He blinked and met my eyes.

“What the hell are you doing over there?” I pushed to stand up straight.

“Right now?” He capped his water bottle. “Well, honestly… 

I’m just thinking you’d look better over the hood of that car than under it.”

I unhooked the hood and slammed it down, spinning on the balls of my feet.

Our eyes met properly. I didn’t like what I saw in his—desire, attraction, need. Which was obviously why a shiver ran down my spine.

I cocked a hip, putting my hand on it. “The only time you will ever get me over a hood of a car is if a wiper blade needs changing. So, unless you’re a wiper blade...”

Dex pulled his phone from his pocket and started tapping the screen.

I blinked. “What are you doing?”

He peered up at me through his unfairly thick eyelashes. 
“Seeing if I can get a wiper blade costume for Halloween.”

“I don’t even know how to respond to that.”
“You can buy wiper blade glasses.”

“What?”

He raised his eyebrows. “And a lady here on eBay will hand-make any costume. There’s my Halloween sorted.”

I stared at him. “You’re not getting me over anything, Dex. 
Definitely not a car hood. No matter what you think.”

He clutched his chest dramatically. “You wound me.”

“Unfortunately not fatally,” I muttered.

“You also underestimate me.”

“There’s a lot of that going around in this garage.” I put the bottle of coolant away.

“Touché.”

“Thank you.”

“Can I ask you something?”

I sighed and turned to face him again. “What?”

Earnestly, he asked, “Can you stop wearing those tiny shorts? Or yoga pants that make me want to touch your ass every five minutes?”

I looked down at the ripped shorts of my dungarees. “Can you keep your thoughts to yourself? Control yourself, maybe? Not look at me and see someone worth screwing?”

COVER REVEAL: Man Flu by Shari J. Ryan

Cover Designer: MadHat Books
Release Date: January 17, 2018
 

Synopsis



I was trying to live every woman's dream, except my reality has been nothing but a nightmare job and a divorce at the age of thirty-two. Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, my ex-husband, Rick, moved in next door with his life-size Barbie doll. So, that's been fun.

Then, life pitched me a curve-ball in the form of a retired major-league baseball player, Logan Grier. With his panty-dropping smile, he’s like an expertly photoshopped version of David Beckham, and he's single. Could life be perfect after all? Of course not. As always, there had to be a catch. Logan had a secret, and I couldn’t help feeling like the truth was dangling right in front of my face.

With Rick’s daily agenda of torturing me, Logan has been an enticing distraction, despite the little fact that he’s my temporary employee. Plus, I didn’t exactly care that his flirty behavior may have been a plan to get in good with the boss. In any case, I was willing to toss a few balls with him, seeing as my playing field hadn’t had any action in over a year.

That’s when it happened…my two worlds collided. Hot temp met the ex, and a full-on bromance was born, but that’s only the beginning.

The “man flu” has come out of nowhere and hit both Logan and Rick with a virus they’re claiming to be worse than childbirth. In fact, they’re pretty sure their end is near.



Will the “man flu” be the kiss of death, or will it be my window for an opportunistic change?

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY: Three Blind Dates by Meghan Quinn

We can not wait for this release! Check out this teaser for THREE BLIND DATES by Meghan Quinn!


Add it to your TBR--> http://bit.ly/2zY0Zuf

"Good Morning Malibu, it’s another beautiful day on the west coast! I'm Noely Clark, your host: and I'm in the market for love…”

When the publicity team of the new local restaurant, Going in Blind, began their search for a hot, local celebrity to promote the wildly popular eatery, they couldn’t have found a better person than me.

Outgoing? Check.
Single? Check.
Open to finding love? Check.

I signed up immediately.

A hopeless romantic with an exceedingly demanding schedule, I've found it impossible to find the man of my dreams—so Going in Blind seems too good to be true! That’s until they start setting me up on dates—three very different, very attractive, very distinct blind dates—and only one thing is for certain . . .

I’m in big trouble.

Good Morning Malibu,
I'm Noely Clark, and I have a choice to make.
The question is who will I choose; the suit, the rebel, or the jock.






Author, wife, adoptive mother, and peanut butter lover. Will dance for laughs, won’t eat anything spicy because you asked, but will squeeze boobs in replace of a hug. Grew up in Southern California (Temecula, anyone? Anyone?) lived in New York (the armpit of NY, not the city) and now resides in Colorado with my wife, son, two dogs, three cats, and my multiple book boyfriends. Loves love, anything romantic, and will die if I ever meet Tom Hanks. Yay, books!

RELEASE BLITZ: Love So Wild (Lawson Brothers #8 ) by Marquita Valentine




Love So Wild, an all-new contemporary romance from Marquita Valentine is available now!




Love So Wild by Marquita Valentine 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Publishing Date: December 13th, 2017

Pilot Elijah Lawson always knew he’d return to Jessamine, marry a hometown girl and settle into very predictable life. After all, he made promises to his parents that once he’d gotten his fill of adventure that he would do exactly that… and Eli was a man of his word. Only he's never been able to get the bewitching redhead he’d fallen hard for two years earlier out of his head and he’s afraid that no woman in Jessamine will ever measure up.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop his family from trying to set him up with every single woman in town… until Skye Holland shows up on his doorstep.

The only reason Skye Holland moved back to North Carolina was so she could do the right thing for her one year old son. A boy, after all, needed his father, while she… she simply needed a fresh start. But first, she has to let Eli know that their red-hot affair had consequences. Consequences she has no intentions of repeating, no matter how many old feelings come rushing to the surface when they’re together.

Too bad for Skye that Elijah has other ideas and he’s not going to let this second chance at love get away again.

REVIEW BLITZ & 4 STAR REVIEW: Torrid Little Affair (Forbidden Desires #3) by Kendall Ryan

 
  


The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.








My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

After the first two books in this series, I was so excited for Cooper to get his happily ever after. I absolutely loved him. He was sweet. Sexy. Sensitive. Caring. But by the end of the second book he was a broken man and all I wanted was for him to be happy. 

Cooper has taken a break from the family business. He needed to get away and heal, but now it is time for him to come back. Upon his return, he meets his new assistant Corinne and that is when the real healing begins. 

I think I shot myself in the foot with this book. I absolutely LOVED Cooper and was so excited to get his story, but I think I may have built it up a bit too much in my head. And then when I started reading, something happened, which had never happened before. I let current events color my view of something that happened in this book. I won't say what it was exactly, but I started reading this book soon after a giant news story broke. And then Cooper did something that made me think of that news story and it me so angry that I had to put the book down and take a little break. 

But while I was initially taken aback, I did end up finishing it and enjoying Cooper's story. Meeting Corinne and starting up a relationship with her helped him put things into perspective and make him realize what is really important. 

And now I can't wait for Quinn's story! It's an older man/younger woman story! Yayyyyyyyyy!
