✱✱Book Review✱✱ Wild River by Laura Pavlov Release Blitz

 



Wild River by Laura Pavlov is now live! 


A Small Town, Enemies to Lovers, Boy Obsessed, Found Family, Standalone Romance from USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Author, Laura Pavlov.

 

Ruby Rose declared me the enemy before I had a chance to defend myself.

I may be an attorney, but this girl had appointed herself judge and jury.   

And I’d never minded a good verbal sparring.

There was a comfort in going to battle against the evil queen.

Maybe it was just the recognition of one damaged soul to another.

But the more we fought—the more I craved her.

Until our arguing turned into a bit of a wager.

One I was determined to win.

One time. Sixty seconds. A secret only we would share.

I’d work my magic and she’d declare me the winner.

I’d gloat, she’d sulk—that was my plan.

She was determined to prove me wrong.

But from the minute we crossed the line, there was no turning back.

She was so far under my skin I couldn’t think straight.

Feeling things that I’d never felt before was one thing.

But knowing the clock was ticking was another.

Ruby Rose may have given me more than sixty seconds, but she wasn’t offering forever.

And now my world doesn’t work without her in it.

But how do I convince her to stay, when she already has one foot out the door?

Momma says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Here we are at book 2 in Laura Pavlov's Magnolia Falls series, and I'm thoroughly invested in this town and its inhabitants. Enemies to lovers is one of my favorite romance tropes. I love that thin line between love and hate and the fire that goes with it, and this pair lives up to the trope spectacularly. River and Ruby have great chemistry. Whether they're butting heads or falling all over each other, the fireworks fly. This author paints such vivid pictures with her words. From the setting to the characters, I feel like I've visited Magnolia Falls, and I can't wait to go back. I only found Laura Pavlov's books in the last few months, but I'm definitely a fan. She has quickly become a must read for me, and I'd highly recommend any of her books, this one most definitely included.

The Heart Knows What The Mind Cannot See Blitz

 

Self Help, Spiritual Inspiration

Date Published: 06-02-2021


 

This is a thought-provoking and enlightening exploration of spirituality and perception. The text functions as a guide to self-improvement, with a mixture of autobiographical elements and snippets of universal wisdom. The speaker provides accessible solutions to life's difficulties, and an outlook of optimism applicable to any circumstance. The illustrations and graphics are thoughtfully chosen, and the interactive textual elements give this work an originality that sets it apart. The speaker's own experiences and conclusions are at the heart of this fiction, and the first-person narrative voice creates a sense of proximity between author and reader. The text describes itself as 'a journey to the heart', and this truthful discovery of the self is reflected in the speaker's revelation of his whole self through the text. The narrative often presents a dichotomy between positive and negative outlooks or voices.

For example, the speaker includes sections in which his self-doubt speaks, 'you've got no proper education, you can't spell properly, you're dyslexic and your grammar is crap. You're not really a writer'. This negative voice directly opposes the sense of self-belief the speaker builds within the narrative. He uses examples such as this to remind readers that the journey to happiness is complex and that flaws or setbacks are natural. The negative separation or fragmentation of the self is prevalent in the lines, 'I do not love the grumpy me, the sad me, the hostile me, the parts of me that act as if I do not care'. The act of writing represents a unification of the self and an attempt to reframe the speaker's life into coherence. The frequent use of direct address and rhetorical questions promotes an active reading experience, in which the author opens up a dialogue with the reader. The text includes prompts and activities for the reader to engage with and learn from. Encouraging readers to take part in the text is emblematic of their journey to self-fulfillment and love, in which they must take responsibility for actively creating their own happiness.

The speaker depicts his process of enlightenment as a framework for others to emulate, and the format of the text demonstrates the transfer of agency to those who take part in the speaker's challenges at the end of each chapter. This work ultimately teaches us that 'we are the cause of what is' and thus sheds light on the crucial idea that every individual has the power to create themselves and their world positively.

Deadly Sins by January Bain Blurb Blitz

 

Deadly Sins

by January Bain


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Contemporary Romance (Mafia)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Book one in the Irish Mafia Kings series


Blood for blood. Her family killed my brother, so I’ll take their princess.


I’m Quinn Lyons, Irish Mafia King, a man known for getting what he wants, and I want her, Aria Byrne. I’m going to make her pay for her family’s sins.


I didn’t intend to snatch her from her fancy engagement party, just kill her rival mobster father, but plans change in the heat of the moment. Now she’s mine to claim and possess, because what better bargaining chip could a Mafia boss have than the beloved princess of a rival family?


Until I decide I don’t ever want to let her go.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~


EXCERPT


Quinn


My brother and partner-in-crime knocked then strode into my office at my bark to enter. “The Cullen brothers are wanting a word.” A slight twitch under Devlin’s right eye told me the story. “You want me to keep them waiting?”


The Cullens were in deep shit for thinking they could get away with stealing from my family. I should keep them cooling their heels all night. But hell, it might be more fun to torture them. I could use a good workout.


“Give me five and send them up.”


Devlin nodded and looked like he was about to say more before changing his mind and exiting. I shifted—the Irish king, ready for action.


Stepping up to the one-way glass overlooking the main venue of the Emerald Club, I scanned the crowd, alert for possible signs of trouble. Our family hadn’t risen to the upper echelons of Montreal’s crime families by turning a blind eye. No, we’d done it by an eye for an eye, the golden rule.


“Power isn’t handed to you. It’s seized, by whatever means necessary.”


Amen, Dad. Rest in peace.


I was a true son of my father. To everyone else, I was a monster, mob boss, a killer, king of the underworld, a man who took what he wanted. One exception to the rule—I don’t hurt innocents. But for clarity’s sake, innocence was a rare commodity in my world.


I glanced over at the huge oil painting of my father painted at the height of his power, his posture stern on the straight-backed chair, his eyes dark and shadowed, a man never to be crossed. My mother stood behind him and his four sons lined up by his side.


“Family. Honor. Security. Protecting everything we had struggled for over the years—that always comes first, son.”


I honored his words with a nod. We might have arrived on the shores of North America starving and in rags, but since then we’d fought tooth and nail to rise and take our proper place in society, aligning ourselves with people and places that mattered.


“Never forget where you came from, Quinn…or what you will die for.”


I will find his killer, Da, I promised both my father and my baby brother, Mikey.

✱✱Book Review✱✱ The Drawback of Single Dads by Piper Rayne Release Blitz

 


The Drawback of Single Dads by Piper Rayne is now live! 



He’s the father of my child and my best friend.


When Hudson and I met, somehow things just clicked between us. We had the same sense of humor and the same carefree attitude about our lives and goals. Neither of us wanted to lay down roots, we wanted to explore the world.


Then one night, too much alcohol and uncontrolled hormones led to the line blurring, and we fell into bed together only to discover a month later that we were more careless than we thought.


Like the upstanding guy he is, Hudson followed me back to my hometown of Lake Starlight, Alaska, where you can’t throw a penny and not hit one of my family members. We gave them the news that yes, we were having a baby but there would be no wedding. We loved each other but we weren’t in love.


Fast forward three years and we live side by side to make co-parenting our daughter easy. I’m a writer, and he’s a ski instructor. We’ve worked out all the rough edges. Life is good.


Until out of nowhere, things start to change. He has a girlfriend, we’re arguing more than ever, and it feels as if someone has come along and popped our perfect bubble. I’m not sure we’re ever going to fit back inside it now because things are developing. Things like feelings.

Momma says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
The great thing about series involving small-town romances is that you get to know the characters that make up that town. So, when you get to visit again, you can maybe catch a glimpse of some of them. Okay, that's one of the great things. The romance is pretty darn good, too. Piper Rayne have brought us back to Lake Starlight for a fun, low-angst friends-to-lovers romance, and it's everything we've come to expect from this duo. Hudson and Palmer are so good together. Of course, they're the last to know just how good, but that's half the fun of this romance. Then, there's sweet Adley, who is a total scene stealer. I'll skip the details and let each reader enjoy this one spoiler-free. What I will say is The Drawback of Single Dads is witty and fun with just the right amount of tugs on those heartstrings. The couple is super easy to fall in love with, and it's another great visit to Lake Starlight.
