Release Blitz - Stealing Christmas by Alexa Riley


















goodreads-badge.png






















Christmas Winter is lucky she loves this time of year, because her name didn’t give her much of a choice. She’s always bubbly and happy. So when she takes a job as an elf in the mall, she’s excited to spread some cheer. But Christmas could never expect what happens when she catches the eye of a stranger.

Nicholas Light owns everything he sees, and when his eyes land on the new elf in his mall’s Santa exhibit, he knows she’s no different. There’s something about her sweet innocence that he has to have, and he’ll concoct a plan to make that happen.

Warning: Grab your jingle bells and swing them over your head… This holiday quickie is gonna light up your Noel. Okay, none of that made sense. But it sounded festive, right? This book is adorable, and you’ll love it. Just don’t get tinsel stuck in the wrong places. Trust us.











Nikki's 5 Star Review
I only recently started reading Alexa Riley Books and I have to ask myself what took me so long. I loved Stealing Christmas it's a quick festive read in which a lot happens in a short amount of time but I don't think that takes anything away from just how much of a great story it is.
Christmas Winter works at the mall, as you can probably guess Christmas is her favourite time of year, if only she had someone to spend it with. This year as she's helping out as Santa's Little Helper she catches the eye of the owner of the mall Nicholas.
Nicholas has become a bit of a recluse since his father died and he took over his family's empire but the one thing about Nic is no matter what it is he always gets what he wants, and what he wants to unwrap this year is Christmas.

Nikki's 5 Star Review

Another fantastic read by these two very talented ladies. I have to say this is my favourite book so far of this series Mark and Riley's story was totally hot and I was addicted from the very first page.

Mark and Riley have known each other since they were kids and one summer years ago shared a kiss neither of them have ever forgot, but the timing wasn't right for them and over the years life has just got in the way. Riley is now a professional golfer and is in need of a caddy for a few weeks she asks Mark if he would mind filling in for her. He's just left his job so has the time on his hands so he accepts. Could this be second time lucky for them can true love really win out against all odds or will there just be to many obstacles in the way for them to have the chance of getting a relationship off the ground.

I loved Dangerous Love by Liz Lovelock it was a very  emotional story full of suspense with a couple of twists that I really wasn't expecting but it was also a story about finding your way back to your one true love when you least expect it.

Excerpt

Despite the heartbreak he caused me, the feelings I had for him have never completely disappeared. Reduced, definitely, but they’re still there. A first love leaves a special imprint on one’s heart. There was so much good with us, but also so much bad, and Brayden left me with a view that love will always be tainted. The L word is now a dirty word and something I’m incapable of. Serious relationships are non-existent in my life. He made sure he destroyed them for me, just like he shattered my happiness.

Relaxing into my pillows and releasing a breath, I try to calm my racing heart. Closing my eyes, I silently hope and pray that I will sleep better for the rest of the night. As I begin to settle in, a strange sensation prickles over my already clammy skin.

Someone’s watching me.
My eyes open slightly and move to a dark silhouette standing in my doorway. Panic begins to take over, and my machines beep crazily once again. Fumbling for my buzzer, I know I need a nurse, but as I hold the device in my hands my eyes catch the doorway, and the silhouette is gone.

Blog Tour - Rock Hard by Kat Austen



















AP new - buy the book.jpg









 














AP new - synopsis.jpg

First loves don’t last. Especially one as unlikely and turbulent as Elodie and Caspian’s.

It’s been years since she’s seen the rough rebel she fell in love with as a teen. She’s put him behind her and moved on. That’s the story she tries to sell her friends and family, but deep down, she knows it’s a lie. She hasn’t moved on from Caspian Cruz and she probably never will, but she has to finally give up hope they’ll ever reunite.

Or does she?

When her friends drag her to a sold-out rock concert, she comes face to face with the lead singer . . . who just so happens to be the boy she fell for all those years ago.

She never thought she’d see him again. She never realized he’d made it in the music world. And she never expected him to confess that he’s been waiting for her as long as she’s been waiting for him.

What will happen when their worlds collide again? A repeat of the past or a second chance to get things right?



ROCK HARD is a short and sexy read, chock-full of excessive sweetness and heaps of filthy talking. Not for the faint or square of heart.


Nikki's 4.5 Star Review
Rock Hard by Kat Austen is such a sweet second chance romance. Its a short read but please don't think this will take anything away from how much of a great story it is.

 Caspian was Elodie's first love until her parents forced them apart. It's been years since she last saw him and even though she has tried to move on with her life her heart has always belonged to him.
Caspian has always loved Elodie he's tried to find her over the years and was determined that when he did he would be a man she would be proud to have at her side.

When her friends drag her to a sold out rock concert she's surprised to see a familiar face up front and centre is there finally a chance she could be reunited with the love of her life?

Its fast paced and a lot happens in such a small amount of time the only downside was that this story was a little longer.











“Men suck. It’s official. If a girl like you can’t keep a guy, there is literally no hope for me.” My friend, Sydney, shook her head and took a drink of her margarita.
   “Just to confirm, you know for sure that he was cheating on you?” Our friend Jessie twisted on the stool to look at me straight on.
   Exhaling, I pulled my phone from my clutch and scrolled through a few messages until I found the one I’d been sent a few days ago from a number I didn’t recognize. I refused to look at the picture, but I made sure Jessie and Sydney got a good look.
   Jessie’s eyes narrowed.  “Two-timing, sorry bastard.”
   Sydney winced like the image was grotesque. “Dude, if that’s what he looks like beneath that fancy composer’s tuxedo, let that violin-playing hussy have his pasty, blubbery ass.”
   “He’s all hers,” I said, tucking my phone back away.
   “Hans was crazy about you though. I don’t get it. Why the sudden change of heart?” Jessie pulled the olive from her martini and popped it into her mouth.
   “Oh, please, it didn’t have anything to do with his heart. He was thinking with his dick when he fell into bed with Tits McGee there,” Sydney chimed in, which worked for me. I wasn’t eager to hash out my most recent failed relationship with anyone, my two good friends included.
   Hans and I had been dating on and off for a couple of years. He was the conductor for the world-renowned Los Angeles symphony, twenty years my senior, and had a golden reputation in the upper circle. My parents had been thrilled when they found out I was seeing Hans Vandenberg, visions of musical-prodigy offspring dancing through their heads.
   No doubt they’d been devastated when I told them we’d split. They probably would blame me for ruining it even if I showed them the photo I’d been sent of him asleep and naked in bed with some other woman. They always seemed to prefer the ones who treated me like crap over the only one who’d ever treated me the way a person who claimed to love someone should.
   “I bet you’re relieved you didn’t let him finally wear you down, right, Elodie?” Sydney had to nudge me to bring me back to the present. “Way to hold out on a guy for two years. You made his true colors come through.”
   “His true colors being pasty with a splattering of really unattractive body hair,” Jessie muttered.
   “Truthfully, I’m surprised it didn’t happen sooner. Hans and I were never good together. He or I should have called things off months ago.” I shrugged like that was that, because it was.
   Other than looking good on paper, Hans and I had never made sense. I’d never once looked at him and felt my stomach drop, and I knew all he’d seen when he looked at me was a young girl he was hoping to add to his rumored lengthy list of bed mates.
   That was part of the reason I’d held out for so long—I didn’t want be one of a hundred others, or even one of a few. I wanted to be the one of one. The one he’d waited for. I wanted to be someone’s The One.
   “Okay, so I’ve got a brilliant plan for Operation Over Hans VanPastyAss.” Sydney tipped back what was left of her drink, lifting her finger at the bartender. “We’re going to get good and mildly drunk, then we’re going to go see My Mortal Affliction from the front row, baby”—Sydney pulled a trio of tickets from her purse, fanning them in my face—“we’re going to get on our knees and worship that god of a lead singer of theirs, probably flash him a few dozen times, then we’re going to make out with some really fine specimens before we allow our heads to hit the pillow tonight.”
   My eyebrows came together as I studied the concert tickets. I’d agreed to meet my friends for a drink after my earlier performance, but I hadn’t planned on anything else after this. As it was, I was already checking the time, hardly able to wait to crawl into my bed and put an end to this day.
   From the friends’ texts I’d had to field who were just finding out about Hans’s and my split, to avoiding my parents’ incessant calls encouraging me to work things out, to the concert where I’d felt haunted by a ghost during the last few minutes, I was ready to put this day to bed.
   “I’ve got early practice tomorrow,” I said.
   Jessie lifted her finger at me. “You’ve always got early practice. That’s no longer an excuse to dodge life.”
    I blinked, offended. “I’m not dodging life.”
   “Correction, you dodge the fun parts of life.”
   My mouth fell open a little as I looked at Sydney to back me up, but all she did was lift her hands and keep her lips sealed. I wanted to defend myself, but they were right. Other than the endless hours I spent playing piano, my life wasn’t very exciting. Outside of these two dragging me out for the occasional good time, my social calendar was pathetic.
    I had no idea who this My Mortal Addiction was, what kind of music they played, or if I’d even like it, but having my friends call me out stirred something inside me. They were right. I’d spent enough time waiting for my life to really get started. Enough time feeling like an empty shell.
   “Well?” I finished the last of my wine and slid off of my stool. “Ready when you are.”
