ARC Review: 'Til Death (Volume One) by Bella Jewel

They say there's a fine line between love and hate. 

There is. 

I married a douchebag.

I didn't know it at the time. 

He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet. 

I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am. 

Then he left me high and dry. 

Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem. 

He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path. 

I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head. 

I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing. 

With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died. 

Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.

I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me. 

He has to pay.

And pay he will. 

This is part of a two book series and it will contain a HEA – Readers over 







5 INTENSE STARS

I loved every single page of this book and I need more. I need part 2 ASAP. The prologue hooked me and I couldn't stop reading. 

'Til Death is now marked as a favorite read of mine for 2014! It made my heart heart. I loved how Ms. Jewel told this story between both point of views of Marcus and Katia. And it seamlessly flowed when it was told from the "now" and "then."

Marcus Tandem. He's an asshole and wanted just one thing--to run/own a business that he thought he deserved. But there was one minor detail that could of put a stop to all that.

And in comes Katai. I loved this girl. She was kind, beautiful, hard-working and just wanted to see good in others. And then at times, I just wanted to shake her to wake up and realize who Marcus really is! But I have to say, Marcus fooled me too. I hated that I loved him. 

The "relationship" between these two is friggin' hot. Marcus and Katia are really intense and passionate, but...is it real? Ugh, this book was frustrating, because I wanted Katai have her HEA, but it never ends that way. But don't get me wrong, there's more to their story coming in the next volume and... I. CAN'T. WAIT.

Release Day Blitz: Tatted Cowboy (#4) by Kasey Millstead

One moment was all it took for my entire life to shatter.

One moment.

I had everything . . . and then, I had nothing.

When all you’re left with are the pieces of your broken heart, there’s nothing you can do, except try to rebuild. So, that’s what I did.

One moment was all it took for me to feel the first flutter of hope I’d had in a long time.
One moment.

He barrelled into my life, covered in tattoos and surrounded by an aura that enraptured me, determined to be the glue that held every broken piece of me together.

I wanted to push him away, because I was scared to lose anyone else I loved.

But, I wanted to hold him close because without him, my life was empty.

Fuck.

I’ve done it again.

I turn my head and survey my surroundings. Four white hotel walls and a horrible painting of a man fishing in a pond are the first things that come into my hazy line of sight. The second thing is the blonde knocked out cold next to me, her tits hanging half out her shirt. 

Damn. What in the hell did I do last night? 

I squeeze my eyes shut while the pounding in my skull beats continuously. Raising my hand, desperate to pinch the bridge of my nose to ease the pain, my arm stops far short of my face. My gaze snaps down to my wrists, bound at my sides with a thin rope, and I yank my arm, attempting to move my feet as well without much luck. 

What in the hell? 

My heart thunders in my chest as my foggy brain quickly pulls together that someone has no intentions of allowing me to leave this bed. Panic rolls over me when I can’t recall whom I came here with, or even how I got here. As much as I hate to admit it, Trip was right—some chick has finally gone all Misery on my ass.

Release Day Blitz for The Trouble With Trouble by Erin Kern



When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. Right? Well, Courtney Devlin has had her fair share of lemons in life and, quite, frankly, she’s sick of lemonade. After a life-altering car accident and ending her engagement, Courtney spends the next four years putting the pieces of her broken heart back together. She’s tough and determined not to let her vulnerabilities get the best of her and has made a career for herself as an interior designer. And things finally start clicking into place when her boss puts her in charge of her own design job: A complete overhaul and redesign of her brother’s restaurant, McDermott’s Steakhouse.

The only problem? Her brother, Chase, isn’t the one she’ll be working with. It’s her ex-fiancée. Grant Blackwood.

After Courtney called him a “no good cheating rat-bastard”, Grant left Trouble, Wyoming. The biggest mistake of Grant’s life was allowing Courtney Devlin to slip through his fingers. He knows he screwed up big-time and he’s spent the last four years regretting the way their relationship ended. Then, after his father falls ill, Grant returns to Trouble and takes a job as the general manager of Chase McDermott’s restaurant. 

Grant knows better than anyone that getting involved with Courtney Devlin is like playing with fire. She’s feisty, determined and honest to a fault. But he’s never stopped loving her, and plans on using her new job with him as a way of showing her he’s a changed man. However, he’s unprepared for how much hotter the spark is between them. 

Seems as though time away couldn’t diminish what Courtney and Grant once had with each other.

Then she spotted him. Or, rather his legs. Slightly bent at the knees, covered in a pair of shiny basketball shorts and moving up and down, in the doorway of his office, as though being lifted. As she came closer to his office, the movements of his legs made sense.
A pull-up bar installed at the top of the door frame.

And then the rest of him. Not clothed. As in bare-chested, muscles contracting as he lifted himself chin-level with the bar, then slowly lowered again. Then lifted. Then lowered.
Oh Lord.

“Are you going to say something, or should I keep going so you can stand there and watch?” Grant asked in a surprisingly non-winded voice as he continued his reps.
Courtney wasn’t sure she could do even one of those, much less sound so calm while doing so.

Her eyes remained glued to his torso, specifically how dangerously close those shorts were to slipping right off his narrow hips. And, yeah, white boxer briefs looked spectacularly amazing against tanned skin. Especially when that skin was pulled tight over a freakin’ eight pack.

“I don’t understand what’s going on here.” And, dammit, did she have to sound like she was on the verge of a really good orgasm? Why couldn’t he work out with a shirt on? Or, better yet, not have a body that could have been sculpted from granite?

“What does it look like?” he asked as he touched his chin to the bar, then lowered himself again.

“Well, it kind of looks like you’re doing something other than what you asked me here for.” And torturing me in the process!

“Maybe, maybe not,” he replied with a half a smile.

She stabbed her hands on her hips. “Did I get the day wrong?”

Grant touched his chin to the bar one last time, then dropped to the floor, landing on his feet with the grace of a ballerina. A one-hundred and eighty pound, six-foot-three ballerina.
“No, you got the time wrong.” He hooked his hands on his lean hips and stared at her. A single bead of sweat rolled down in between his pecs, then traced the contour of his abs before being absorbed by the elastic band of his briefs.

She yanked her gaze to his face and willed the heat to seep out of her cheeks. “I’m ten minutes early.”

“You’re twenty minutes late.” He spun around and sauntered into his office. “I told you noon.”

She followed him, secretly congratulating herself for not ogling his cement-hard ass. “You said twelve-thirty.”

Grant swiped a towel off his desk and rubbed it over his face. “No. I specifically remember saying twelve.”

Shit, now she was second guessing herself. Had he said twelve? She’d written twelve-thirty but that had been after she’d hung up the phone with him to schedule the meeting. In the past, her short-term memory had a way of altering itself. She’d been positive she’d heard twelve-thirty, but since she hadn’t written it down the second he’d said the time, it was possible she’d gotten it wrong.

“I can tell by the look on your face that you’re remembering more accurately.” He cupped a hand behind his ear. “Go ahead, you can say it.”

Oh, now the gorgeous bastard was asking for it. Would Chase kill her if she strangled every last cocky breath from his manager’s lungs?

“What, that you’re just as smug as you were four years ago?” she countered instead. Admitting to herself that she was wrong was one thing. Saying that to Grant? She’d rather tar and feather herself.

His only response was a chuckle. The deep throated kind that skittered along her nerve endings like a pebble hopping over the glassy surface of a lake.

“Always something to say,” he commented with a shake of his head. Then he hooked his thumbs into the waistband of his shorts, and pushed them down his legs.

Panic shot through her system faster than it took him to step out of his shorts. “Wait, what’re you doing?”

Holy Guacamole, if he stripped out of those boxers she’d have an aneurysm. Bad enough the cotton material was so tight over every ridge of muscle, he might as well not even be wearing the things.

One of his brows crept up his forehead. “What does it look like? Feel free to stay and watch.”
And then he dropped the boxers.
