BLOG ON THE RUN | TOP 5 SUMMER READS



Prepare your kindle (or your bedside table) because I’ve prepared a list with book recommendations just for you. Summer is about heat, fun and romance, so take a look at these stories:

1 - I FLIPPING LOVE YOU by Helena Hunting: If you’re looking for a fun and sexy read, this one is for you. The story starts with a girl buying cinnamon toasts in a supermarket and a sexy man in a suit stalking her. Then there’s a misunderstanding, a negotiation and a summer to remember. This author is a MUST READ for me, and every time she publishes books I found myself one-clicking the hell out of them. This book is a standalone, so if you haven’t read her books yet this is a nice option to start. 


Here’s the link to my review (buy links and teasers included):  https://extremedamage.blogspot.com/2018/05/review-i-flipping-love-you-by-helena.html

2 - THE NAUGHTY PRINCESS CLUB by Tara Sivec: This isn’t a book but a trilogy, and it’s a retelling with a twist, featuring princesses from the classic fairy tales (Cinderella, Belle, Ariel…). The 2 first books are out, and the third is about to be released. These books are standalone, each one featuring a different princess. One of the things I loved the most about the books was the strong message about empowering women, friendship and the pursuit of happiness. They are funny, sexy and romantic, and I can’t wait for you to read them. 


Here’s the link to my reviews (buy links and teasers included):

3 - MAN HANDS SERIES by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby: Let me tell you something about these books, they aren’t just funny. They are ridiculously hilarious! 
The first two books (Man Hands and Man Card) are already out and the third is coming in a few days! 


Take a look at my reviews (buy links and teasers included): https://extremedamage.blogspot.com/search/label/Tanya%20Eby

4 - KARINA HALLE’S PRINCES: No, that’s not the name of the series, but it’s how I like to call them. THE SWEDISH PRINCE was my first time reading Karina’s books and I loved the simple prose, the sensation of being traveling with the characters and the way this author has to explore every feeling (the doubts, the fear, the love and the passion).  


I also fell in love with Prince Magnus who’s the lead character in THE WILD HEIR. Both books are standalone, and the third installment in this series is coming soon and it’s titled A NORDIC KING.

5 - THE DIVE BAR SERIES by Kylie Scott:  If you enjoyed the Stage Dive series, then get ready for these sexy bartenders ;) Each book features a different couple and even when the stories are related they can be read as standalone.

BONUS READ: 
The constellation duet by Jennifer Locklear: I loved the first book. It was awesome and the lead couple has an amazing chemistry. Now the 2nd installment is out, so if you were waiting for the duet to be complete, you can read them together now!

#NewRelease THE NAKED TRUTH by Vi Keeland

TNT_Title_Black
A Standalone Second Chance Romance Novel
By: #1 NY Times Best Selling Author, Vi Keeland

TNT_FrontCover with black edge
RELEASE DATE: Monday, July 23, 2018

Synopsis

It was just a typical Monday.
Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client.
After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed.  
Or so I thought…
Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch.
My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance.
And that was the good part of my day.
Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook.
A man who I’d only just begun to move on from.
A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about.
A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy.
Somehow, I managed to make it through my presentation ignoring his intense stare.  
Although it was impossible to ignore all the dirty things he whispered into my ear right after I was done.
But there was no way I was giving him another chance, especially now that he was a client…was there?

ARC REVIEW | DAGGER'S EDGE (Brute Force #2) by Lora Leigh


In a world of secrets, vengeance and lies, Lora Leigh wrote a surprising and addictive story, with enough passion and eroticism to melt your ereader! Take a look at Lora Leigh's upcoming release DAGGER'S EDGE, the second installment in her BRUTE FORCE SERIES!


#1 bestselling author Lora Leigh is back--with a vengeance--in her latest novel of passion and intrigue, Dagger's Edge, featuring the men of Brute Force. 

Ivan Resnova wants nothing more than to escape his hard, brutal past. Starting over is not so easy once you've been a powerful crime boss but now, instead of being punished for his alleged crimes, Ivan fears that the one woman he can't forget is in danger of paying the price.

Crimsyn "Syn" Delaney thought the danger she'd faced was over, and that she could resume her life. She never imagined it would return with a vengeance and throw her back into Ivan's world. But when an attempt is made on her life, she needs Ivan more than ever to keep her safe--even if she is in danger of falling deeply and dangerously in love. . .

"Leigh's books can scorch the ink off the page."--RT Book Reviews


In a world of secrets, vengeance and lies, Lora Leigh wrote a surprising and addictive story, with enough passion and eroticism to melt your eReader. 

Our lead character, Ivan Resnova, is known as a brutal and powerful crime boss, but when it comes to what he love the most he can also be terrifyingly passionate. Who says the villain can't also be a knight in shining armor? Because that's exactly what he becomes to Crimsyn "Syn" Delaney when danger knocks to her door; and despite her efforts to fight her feelings for him and to keep her secrets safe, she will have to trust in the only man who can also destroy her.

I loved Ivan alpha male's ways. He's nobody's hero, he's just a man who get what he wants and has no fear of it being taken from him once he gets it. Ivan is the kind of man who will fight until the end for what he consider his, and he stated his claim over Crimsym, or I must say Journey, when he took he in his bed. He's not a bad guy turned good, and sure as hell he wasn't pretending being a bad guy. He was what he was, a man following his own rules and doing what's necessary to keep himself, and his family, alive in the world he had to live in.

I also enjoyed Journey/Crimsyn (Syn). She was in certain way innocent, but with a deep strength; she's being through hell but she keeps fighting. She grew up among monsters and was sold into a marriage she wasn't willing to go into, so when she had the chance she ran, and never stop running or hiding. She's Tenhya's cousin (Live Wire), and became friends with Amara (Collision Point), but she guarded fiercely every secret she had, even her attraction to Ivan since she was 16 years old. But the danger has a way to catch up with you in the most unexpected ways.

Lora Leigh’s DAGGER’S EDGE is an erotic and suspenseful love story, with an incredible narrative rhythm and enough action to keep you biting your nails until the last page. After reading this book I felt like rereading Elite Ops series along with Collision Point. Can't wait for the next book in this series to come out.

“May I get you something to drink while you wait for the rest of your party?” the waiter asked.
I would normally wait to see what the client did and follow his lead on alcohol. But tonight was not the norm.

I rubbed at my stiff neck. “I’ll take a vodka cranberry, please.”

I hoped it would help calm my nerves and release some of the tension in my jaw before I gave myself a full-blown headache. Taking out my phone, I started to scroll through emails to distract myself while waiting for my drink and dinner companion.

My head whipped up at the sound of Gray’s voice behind me. “Sorry I’m late.”

My heart unexpectedly fluttered, and I fought against the feeling of excitement. “Are you really? Because I get the sense you don’t have any manners after the way you interrupted me a million times today.”

He completely ignored my attitude as he took the seat across from me. “Traffic is a bitch getting downtown at this time. Next time we’ll have dinner at my place.”

“There won’t be a next time.”

Gray’s mouth curved into a smug smile as he snagged my gaze. “Sure there will. There’ll be plenty of next times. And eventually you’ll stop pretending you don’t enjoy my company.”

I hated that my body reacted to him. Right from the very start, we’d had a crazy chemistry between us that was difficult to dull.


I sighed. “What are you doing, Gray? Why did you come to my firm?”

He lifted the cloth napkin in front of him and laid it across his lap. “Isn’t that obvious? I need new legal representation.”

“At my firm? And you’d prefer that representation come from an associate instead of my boss’s boss—the head of our securities division? Or even from Pittman, who would gladly hold your hand and provide you whatever legal advice you need from his fifty-plus years of experience?”

“Loyalty is important to me. I want someone I can trust with my business.”

“And you’ve decided that’s me? An associate with five years experience who just got off probation with the Bar Association for violating attorney-client privilege?”
The waiter arrived with my drink. “Here you go, ma’am.” He turned to Gray. “May I get you something to drink? Or would you like to wait until the last of your party joins you this evening?”

“It’s just the two of us. I’ll have a Macallan, neat, please.”

“Coming right up.” The waiter walked around to the other side of the table and started to remove the third place setting.

I put my hand out, stopping him. “We actually do have another party coming, so you can leave that.”

“Very well.” He nodded.

Gray waited until the waiter was out of earshot. “I didn’t invite anyone else to dinner.”

I sipped my drink and offered a saccharine-sweet fake smile. “I did. Figured an important client like you should have more than one attorney to answer his questions.”

Just as I set down my glass, I saw the other man I was waiting for enter the restaurant. He scanned the room, looking for me, so I held up my hand and waved.

“Perfect timing. There’s Oliver now.”

Gray glanced at the man heading toward us and back to me. Instead of being pissed off, the jerk was amused. “That’s cute. You invited a chaperone because you don’t trust yourself with me.”   

We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of THE NAKED TRUTH.

#NewRelease THE ACCIDENTALS by Sarina Bowen



Hi there! You have no idea how long I've waited to share this book with you. I promise this one of the best YA book you'll read this summer, and you regret if you miss it! The Accidentals is the first foray of Sarina Bowen into YA literature, and it's absolutely awesome. Don't believe me? Take a look!


The Accidentals
by Sarina Bowen


SUMMARY

A YA novel from USA Today bestselling author Sarina Bowen.

Never ask a question unless you’re sure you want the truth.

I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my mp3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face.

My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong.

When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of – not at this cost. 

Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul.
There’s a secret shame that comes from being an unwanted child. It drags me down, and puts distance between me and the boy I love.

My father is the only one alive who knows my history. I need the truth, even if it scares me.

What I think about this book?

The author says this is her first time writing YA lit, but it's like she was born to do it.

The Accidentals is one of the most heartfelt, deep, bittersweet and beautiful things that I've read this year so far, and I'm thankful with the author for having this book in my life now.

The way the characters were developed, even though you experiment the whole thing from a single point of view, is wonderful! There's no way to read The Accidentals and don't connect with Rachel and her story, to cry with her in sadness, to laugh with her in excitement, to love, and to be afraid... and live through the music in her ears and in her soul.

The Accidentals is full of musical references and analogies, epic quotes and feelings, but also of a light and fresh sense of humor that will keep you smiling the whole time.

This book means a lot to me, because same as Rachel music has been part of my life and I felt that connection with her as she was telling me her story. The evolution of the characters in the book was a beautiful thing to see, as it was Rachel facing her fears, opening her heart and letting herself go.

This isn't an epic love story of two teens, it's the story of a girl who lost someone important in her life and found different kinds of love to help her mend her heart: Friendship, family, music and love. And those are the ingredients that make this book something special and unforgettable.

#CoverReveal THE CHASE (Briar U #1) by Elle Kennedy


The wait is over! The cover is here, and the book is coming! 

What? Don't you know what I'm talking about? The Chase by Elle Kennedy, the first installment in the Briar U series (related with the OFF CAMPUS series) is almost here! Join me in the cover reveal for this book! I'll tell you all you need to know! Take a look!


THE CHASE (Briar U, Book 1)
by Elle Kennedy
Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.
And that his best friend has a crush on me.
And that I just moved in with them.
Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?
I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?
He knows where to find me.

#NewRelease A GIRL LIKE LILAC by Victoria L. James


Hi there! Today I wanted to share with you a wonderful new release by Victoria L. James. I discovered this author in a readers group not so long ago, and ever since I read the first book with her name on it a fall in love. Victoria's books aren't just romances, they are a life-changing experience. The way she has to built the characters, pour their feelings through the pages and make you feel the way they feel is absolutely breathtaking. 

Now let's talk about her newest release, A GIRL LIKE LILAC, a YA/NA crossover romance that definitely will stole your heart. Take a look.

* * *
Synopsis: 

The first time Toby Hunter got arrested for defending Lilac Clarke’s honor, he was only fifteen years old, but he’d loved her from behind his black-rimmed glasses for as long as he could remember.

With a desperate need to protect her from a distance, one arrest turned to two, two soon turning into three, and before Toby knew what was happening, the sleepy village of Southwold was turning against him for daring to stand up for a girl like Lilac.

Beautiful Lilac with her flowers in her hair, her camera in her hands, and her sweet, pink, sugary-lipped kisses.

They could hate him for loving her all they wanted. Toby was a boy who did what was right, not what was easy, and he was always going to grow to be the man willing to give her what she deserved.

Even if that meant losing Lilac forever.

Want to know what I think about this book?

This story is EVERYTHING! For real!!

After a couple cups of coffee and Kleenex boxes I’m finally ready to talk about A GIRL LIKE LILAC. I’m familiar with the author’s writing, but it’s amazing how she always surprises me with her characters. This time wasn’t different. 

When I started to read I had no idea where everything was heading. I was into a teenage girl talking about life, magic, photography... and about Toby Hunter, the boy next door. The candid approach was sweet and made me smile. And then I smiled wider when I also had the chance to be into Toby's mind because that's a wonderful place to be.

Every turn of a page in this book was exciting, and I found myself wondering what would happen next. I was totally into the book, living the story through the characters eyes, loving with them, dreaming beside them, and having my heart broken the same way they did. And you know what? It was beautiful (probably because I'm kinda masochist or something). 

Lilac and Toby’s love was made of something epic… something magical, so It’s OK to say that there’s magic in this book. A magical kind of love, that’s it. But this book isn’t a fairy-tale. But it isn’t a just tragedy either…  It’s both and more, a comedy, a drama…, just like real life. Lilac and Toby’s book was heartbreaking, but beautiful and intense and… guys, it was perfect! It’s all I can think about this book: that it’s perfect.

As you may probably know by now, I like to design teaser about my latest reads (as the one at the top of this review). Keep scrolling to see more of them.

#CoverReveal BOY TOY (Man Hands #3) by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby


Hey there! Thank you for joining me in the cover reveal for another fabulous Rom-Com by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby.

We already read how are the MAN HANDS, and after that we discovered how to get the MAN CARD... now it's time for us to enjoy a BOY TOY.

Take a look!


Boy Toy
By Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

* * *

Summary:

A new romantic comedy from your favorite snort-laughing duo!

Liam
The moment Sadie Matthews walks through the daycare center door, I feel my world tilt in her direction. Again. I fell for her when I was fourteen, and I’m still not over her. Problem: she still thinks of me as a teen she used to babysit. But I’ve learned a few things about pleasing a woman in the last fifteen years. I can’t wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.

Sadie
I’ve just survived the worst year of my life. As a single mom of twin toddlers, I don’t have time for a man. I barely have time to finish a thought. Who knew that Liam McAllister would grow up to be so devastating? He’s everything my husband was not: tall, built, and willing to have a tea party with my girls. 

I can’t possibly get involved with him. He’s too young for me. Too handsome. But he’s so persuasive...
