BLOG TOUR ~ GETTING OFF EASY by Erin Nicholas

Today we are thrilled to be on tour with Getting Off Easy, an all-new
opposites attract single parent standalone romance from
New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas

GettingOffEasy300.jpg

New Orleans firefighter, James Reynaud’s true love is hanging out in the jazz clubs on Frenchmen Street and playing piano with some of the best musicians in the city. But driving his cute, bookworm neighbor Harper Broussard crazy is right up there on his list of favorite things.

The buttoned-up linguistics professor across the hall is a little older, a lot smarter, and way too good for him. And she knows it. But wow is she beautiful when she blushes.

She’s equally gorgeous when she’s saving his butt. Because now things just got serious. A baby has been, literally, dropped off on his doorstep and to say he’s in over his head is an understatement. Not that Harper knows anything about babies either. But at least they now have something in common.

This contemporary romance featuring a slightly older woman and a younger man is book four of the Boys of the Big Easy and can be read as a standalone.

The author wonderfully created James Reynard as the perfect book boyfriend. He is a fire-fighter, a talented musician and not to mention the dependable guy whom everybody goes to when they need someone to help them out. You can’t help but swoon for this man.

Harper Broussard, an accomplished linguistics professor likes everything in order; she has a plan A, B and C in every situation. She has never been in love and is quite happy reading her romance books. Although she is very much aware of her hottie neighbour, she brushes off his obvious attempts at flirting until someone left a baby outside his door. Now she found herself roped in into helping him solve his dilemma.

The first half of the book was quite slow and I had to push myself into reading it further along. Thank goodness there was more exciting banter after 50%. But I give the author extra points in character development. The narrative style switches back from six months ago to the present every chapter which was clearly defined and not at all confusing.

As Harper overthought a lot of things, I sometimes felt like skimming through the paragraphs simply because I was dying to know what would happen next. It is quite ironic that for a woman who loves romance novels, her reaction was not quite heartfelt when she decided that James was the one for her. Maybe it is because she tries too hard in analysing her decisions and feelings that she comes off as too clinical.

It does get more interesting when they go on a mission to look for the baby’s mother, but I had some issues with the way they finally hooked up. The chemistry between these two can’t be denied but I longed for a more sweeping romance which I felt James deserved. The events that followed are quite hectic and makes up for the slow start but it was definitely worth the slog. I loved the epilogue and it all ends up in happy tears which that’ll make you quite emotional. A light-hearted story perfect for a lazy weekend read.

Harper reached out to lift the baby off of James, but just as her hand touched his back, James stirred. 

She froze. 

“Professor?” 

His voice was husky from sleep, low and gravelly, and Harper’s belly flipped, heat sliding from her stomach lower, between her legs. They were in his bedroom. One of them was in bed. And that voice. And the nickname. She could hardly be blamed for her reaction. 

“Hey,” she said softly.

“You okay?”

It was the middle of the night, and he was the one asleep with the thing that had just turned his life upside down, but he was asking about her? She never came to him with needs. He came to her. She nodded. “I thought I’d take him so you could get more comfortable.”

He looked down at the baby, and seemingly instinctively, his hand slid from the baby’s butt to his back. James’s hand was huge on the tiny baby, and Harper swallowed hard at the sweet picture. “He’s okay.”

“You sure? I don’t mind.”

He looked up at her. He was clearly still sleepy, maybe not fully awake. “You wanna help?” he asked. 

She nodded. “Yeah.” She felt terrible for leaving earlier. It had gone against every instinct except the one that screamed at her to protect her heart no matter the cost. But she was afraid she was far past the point of that being possible. 

“Then come here.”

Harper wet her lips. “Come… there?”

“Yeah.” He reached for her with his free hand and caught her around the wrist, tugging her forward. 

She could have easily pulled back, broken free, resisted. But she let him urge her onto the mattress.

Harper knelt with a knee next to his hip. “How does this help?”

“Gets you up against me,” he said, his voice still sleep roughened.

Her heart skittered. “That’s helpful?”

“Can’t imagine how it will hurt.” He gave her a sleepy, but still devastatingly sexy smile. “This way you’re here if he does need something.”

Well, he had a point. 

Harper stretched out on the mattress beside James. He put his arm up above his head again, not holding her, but definitely exposing plenty of surface area for her to be up against

Oh, what the hell. She wouldn’t sleep well at her place now, wondering what was going on over here. This way she was very much here for whatever went on. And she’d wanted to be up against him for a few months now. Lord only knew what the next few days were going to bring with the baby and everything. She might as well enjoy this moment while she had it. 

She scooted closer. His body was hot and hard. She swallowed with some difficulty. 

Then the baby made a little grunting sound and curled and stretched against James.

This was so not how she’d ever pictured being in bed with James Reynaud. That was for sure.

We finally get the last instalment of Beth and Carter’s epic love story and I was not disappointed, in fact, it went beyond my expectations! And I am definitely sure you will be blown away with the ending. Book two finished with Beth agreeing to marry Duke. And this book starts on the day of Beth’s wedding. The events that followed after changed the course of her life; one can only hope it’s for the better.

Carter all throughout the first quarter of the book wallowed in his pain trying to forget Beth but it drove him deeper into depression. Well, it doesn’t really help when he skulks at the back of the church waiting to see the woman he loves get married to someone else. Although he eventually finds his way back into her arms there are still problems that need to be dealt with.

Written in dual points of view, this book is more about Beth’s emotional maturity. It highlights her character growing a spine and a pair of balls that she ultimately becomes the woman she always wanted to be: free and independent! And what a stunning transformation it is seeing her drive and her passion develops into something that inspires people. Her work reflects her beautiful soul. I love it when the heroine grows into a formidable character without the help of a man; she does it her own way.

“Failure isn’t a terminal condition. If you want something badly enough, you’ll keep going until you have it or until you learn it’s not for you. But if you’re not willing to risk the climb, you can’t complain when you never reach the summit.”

The stumbling block between Carter and Beth’s happy ending gave me heart palpitations and I wondered how the author will address the issue because it was borderline taboo. But fear not, Ms. Allen found a loophole and I was chuffed to bits with how she circumvented the elephant in the room, yay!

The pacing of the story, especially in the last half, is full of suspense that will leave you breathless. So many secrets were uncovered it’s like an archaeologist’s dream and the hodgepodge of antagonists that caused all their problems is dealt with. Beth and Carter’s story is full of heartbreak and hope, of treachery and vengeance, of justice and forgiveness. They have come full circle and it is a strong and binding one.

“The strongest armor any of us have is the love we give ourselves. Nothing can defeat you once you have that in place.”

I am sad that this is the final instalment of the trilogy but also delighted that I get to share their remarkable journey into happy ever after. I highly recommend this book!

I watched her with my entire heart in my throat. I have never been so proud of anyone, ever, in my whole life. 

The whole room just witnessed the sweeping tower of her beauty and courage. Then, they saw the way her expression changed from pride to exultant relief….like a dead man stumbling on a cure when her eyes landed on me.  

Not everyone gets the kind of love I saw in her eyes.  I feel like the luckiest man alive right now because she’s back in my arms.  

We’re the magnetic halves of one whole – drawn together, locking into place, and then holding on for dear life through the seismic shift of our world righting itself.  

I breathe in her sweet, familiar scent. There’s a new depth to it, less flower, more earth, but the essence of it is unchanged. 

“Carter, oh my God, Carter,” she repeats over and over. Her arms are wrapped tight around me like I’m her lifeline. 

Holding her again, there’s no doubt that she’s mine. 

My heart is beating normally for the first time in almost two years. My lungs inflate fully for the first time in that long, too. 

Her nose is pressed to my neck and her lips move against the base of my throat.  My body reacts to her nearness, to the press of her curves, her breasts, her thighs, the way her hair smells.  So, I put her down. When I look at her face and see that smile, I want so badly to hold her again, my erection be damned.  

A throat clears behind us and I turn sharply back to my table. Nadia’s staring at us with wide, wet eyes. 

Next to me, the throat clears again and this time, I follow the sound. Standing to my left is the man I’d seen her with earlier. The one who’d wrapped his arms around her earlier, is looking at me like if there was a baseball bat in reach, he’d use it to put some distance between me and Beth. 

She turns and wraps her arms around his neck hugs him fiercely. 

He hugs her back, but his eyes are stony on me.  

Who is the cradle robbing asshole? 

She pulls out of his embrace and smiles up at him. “Joe, I can’t believe I did it.”

His expression softens the minute he looks down at her, his eyes shine with adoration. 

“I can.  You did a great job,” he says and taps the end of her nose with the tip of his finger.  She preens and gives him a mock curtsey. 

“You gonna introduce me, Beth?”  he asks, nodding over her shoulder at me. 

Her spine straightens and she nods.  Then, she turns back to me, that smile back o her face. 

“Carter this is Joe…my neighbor and my friend.” She squeezes his hand and they smile at each other. 

“I’m her surrogate father,” he corrects in a deep unequivocal voice, a glint of protective pride in his eyes. He shifts his weight and for the first time, I realize he’s leaning on a cane.

“Joe, this is Carter. My….” Her lips purse as she stops to choose her words, but and her eyes are bright with jubilant joy as they scan my face as if the answers to the universe’s mysteries can be found there. “He’s….my best everything. Ever,” she says with a happy, matchlessly beautiful smile. 

My heart does that thing…that stumble, trip, and fall that has always been its response to being near her. 

It doesn’t care that she’s my…whatever. It only knows that for me, she is love.

Come Back for Me, an all-new emotional and riveting standalone from New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels, is LIVE!

One night, eight years ago, she gave me peace.

No names.

No promises.

Just two broken people, desperate to quiet their pain and grief.

In the morning, she was gone and had taken my solace with her. I left for the military that day, vowing never to return to Pennsylvania.

When my father dies, I’m forced to go home to bury him. At least I’ll finally be rid of his farm, which is grown over and tangled with memories I’ve fought to forget.

And that’s when I find her. She’s even more beautiful than I remember and has the most adorable kid I’ve ever seen.

Years have passed, but my feelings are the same, and this time I refuse to let her go. They say you can’t bury the past, and they’re right. Because when long-ago secrets are exposed, rocking us both to the core, I have no choice but to watch her walk away again . . .

The first of a new series by this author featuring the Arrowood brothers, this is Connor’s story. A contemporary second chance romance, this book looks like the start of a very promising series; it can be read as a stand-alone and doesn’t end in a cliff-hanger.

Connor is the youngest of the Arrowood brothers. A Navy seal who just finished his last deployment, he vowed never to return to his hometown. He and his brothers Declan, Jacob and Sean were victims of domestic abuse and survived their father’s wrath. Each one of them carved his own path and career. Connor who was forced to return to his hometown has a lot of emotional baggage to deal with and it looks like his life gets more complicated when he meets Ellie. One thing I guarantee, you will fall head over heels in love with this man, a stand-up kind of guy, protective and loyal to his brothers.

“He’s the man to slay dragons and has the fortitude to do it. I don’t fear telling him things. He is the calm in the storm that rages around me.”

Ellie is the brow-beaten wife of Kevin and mother of seven-year-old Hadley. When things at home get worse, she has nowhere to go and no one to turn to until Connor moves in at the farm next door. Could he save her from her husband? Some questions arise and secrets come out when they finally got to know each other.

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this story but I loved how it developed. Narrated in dual points of view, Ellie’s character as an abused wife will draw out a lot of sympathy from the readers I am sure, but I wished that she developed a backbone sooner rather than later. Her character becoming an independent woman and standing up for herself was a slow process but she gets there in the end. Meanwhile, Connor is your almost perfect hero. He is the one who was strong enough to get out of an abusive home and managed to become a Navy seal who saved lives. His love for Ellie and Hadley outshines his darkest moments.

The antagonist in this book was too conveniently dealt with and I hoped that there was more nail-biting drama, but I guess the domestic violence in Ellie’s home is more than enough for us to cope with. The relationship that develops between Ellie and Connor is the perfect second-chance romance that will truly captivate your heart.

The secondary characters provide an interesting backdrop to Ellie and Connor’s relationship and show how important it is to have the support of family and friends. We are given a glimpse of the other brothers and the build-up to the next book is more obvious at the end when we get to have a quick look at Declan’s story. I am so looking forward to his story and I can hardly wait! I highly recommend this book.

REVIEW BLITZ ~ ACROSS TIME by Elizabeth O’Roark

Today we are thrilled to be sharing Anna’s 5-star review of Elizabeth O’Roark’s brand new paranormal/historical romance, ACROSS TIME


In a dangerous time before her own…a dangerous attraction.

Amelie Besson is on the cusp of attaining the life she’s dreamed of—until she finds herself stuck in pre-war France, fifty years before her time. The country is about to be under German rule, but her most immediate problem is Henri Durand, the arrogant and infuriatingly handsome vineyard owner upon whom her survival depends. 

 The fiercely protective Henri challenges everything Amelie holds true—particularly her hatred of the gift that brought her there in the first place. As the bond between them grows, Amelie will begin to wonder if the life she’s returning to is actually the one she wants, and if her connection to Henri might be strong enough to surmount any obstacle…even time itself.

This is book one of a duet and a prequel to the author’s previous books Parallel and Intersect. Henri and Amelie will surely captivate your heart and stir your imagination.

Young Amelie Besson, an eighteen-year-old girl goes back fifty years in time (1938) and meets Henri Durand, a protective and moody Frenchman. And yes, you got it right, Amelie is a time traveller albeit a reluctant one. I don’t want to go into too much detail to avoid any spoilers but what I want to delve into are the characters in this timeless love story.

Told from a first-person point of view, the author captures the mood and ambience of pre-war France and the mindset of its citizens. It is a fascinating contrast of the modern attitude towards relationships, especially from a woman’s perspective. Amelie’s craving for her mother’s love and acceptance influences her decisions later on in the story. Meanwhile, Henri’s cold and disinterested behaviour towards Amelie is more of a denial of his attraction to her, not approving of her modern and bold outlook in life.

The gradual shift or shall I say the excruciatingly slow burn of Amelie and Henri’s romance is so enchanting, a relationship that started in shaky grounds but gradually and steadily builds up to a thunderous climax. I love that even though these two were mostly at odds in the first half of the story, the author gets to present their characters separately and not as an instant couple and no matter how different they are their love has no boundaries.

A romantic suspense with a twist, this tale had me on the edge of my seat most of the time; the banter between Amelie and Henri and his sister Marie-Therese is funny and entertaining. The author gave us strong intriguing characters who you’ll root for from the first chapter until the last. But be warned, there’s a massive cliff-hanger that might make you want to stomp on your Kindle and have a hissy fit! Just remember all good things come to those who wait… until next April that is when book two comes out. I am head-over-heels in love with Ms. O’Roark’s writing style I can’t help but highly recommend this book!

This is the moment I’ve been waiting for, book two of this romantic suspense duet by my favourite authors. And I can tell you now, prepare to be blown away by Talia and Kostas’ story.

Book one, Hidden Truths ended with Talia missing and we don’t know if she’d run away or been kidnapped. And by whom, you might ask. I had a strong suspicion who was responsible for all the disaster that has been happening with Kostas’ family and I was proven right. I will not; however, give away any spoilers, so you just have to read it yourself.

Talia started as a naive and normal young woman but the moment she met Kostas in Hidden Truths, one can see how she slowly morphs into a woman of strength. In book two, she was kept hidden somewhere and completely helpless most times although every now and then, she’ll show a spurt of defiance. I am in awe of how Ms. Ash and Ms. Webster combined their excellent writing styles to create a strong and formidable female character; Talia reminds me of a vulnerable pupa that grows into a striking (pun intended) butterfly. Talia without her husband gets to be creative and cunning to survive the situation she is in and in the last half of the book, she becomes ruthless and vengeful. I really don’t blame her to be honest.

Kostas is lost without the love of his life, aimless in a sea of despair and it took him one year to get that wake-up call or shall I say a kick in the backside and when he does, he goes on a mission and doesn’t stop until he gets what needs to be done. It is wonderful to see how ruthless he can be with his enemies and yet so gentle and loving with Talia.

“Love is everything. Love is loyalty and forgiveness and hope.”

The main antagonist becomes a raging psychopath, unbelievably brutal that made me want to reach inside my Kindle and squeeze the life out of the evil toad/snake. Oh dear, all that violence is catching but at least it’s all in my head! This book is the perfect combination of a dark, steamy and passionate romance but it is more than that. It teaches us how not to mess with Talia and Kostas, the powerhouse couple who makes Bonnie and Clyde look like Belle and the Beast. Written in dual points of view, this book ticks all the boxes: fast-paced, entertaining, nail-biting suspense, romantic and unforgettable characters. Highly recommended!
