Just The Way You Are by Lynsey James

What They Say:

Dear Ava,

How do you start writing a letter to someone, six years after breaking their heart?
Ava is unlucky in love as well as in life. The new office bitch has landed the dating column Ava wanted, and she can't remember the last time she had a second date. It's a good thing she has best friends Max and Gwen to pick up the pieces.
Deep down, Ava knows the reason why one date never turns into two - she's in love with someone else. Someone she's never even met.
It all started six years ago, with a letter from a secret admirer, Mr Writer…but then they suddenly stopped and Ava was heartbroken.
Now the letters have started again and Ava knows it could mean winning back the dating column at work. This time she's determined to unmask Mr Writer...and find out once and for all if he's Mr Right or Mr Very Definitely Wrong!

What I Say:

I would like to thank Carina for approving me to read this on book on NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I would also like to thank Jenny (Neverland Blog Tours) for allowing me to be part of this tour.

When I saw that fellow blogger Lynsey had been signed up with Carina, I immediately downloaded this book from NetGalley, after all we should support all new writers.

This is a credible debut from Lynsay, even thought the lead Ava was a little bit immature for my reading taste (I'm turning into a grumpy old woman), the plot was a little unbelievable in parts, why would you still love someone who sent you love letters six years ago and when you arranged to meet he didn't show up and broke your heart?  

Regardless of this I carried on reading and I did guess quite a bit of the story from the beginning, this didn't put of me of the book as there were other elements of the book I really enjoyed, especially the part about the older couple that haven't seen each other in fifty years.

When reading this I woud sigh with happiness along with wanting to throw my kindle across the room in exasperation at some of the characters.

For me the big plus of this book really is Lynsey's writing, although I didnt connect with the main character, Lynsey's writing is really great and I look forward to reading more from her in the near future.

Author Bio:

Lynsey James was born in Fife in 1991 and has been telling people how to spell her name ever since. She's an incurable bookworm who loves nothing more than getting lost in a good story with memorable characters. She started writing when she was really young and credits her lovely Grandad- and possibly a bump on the head from a Mr Frosty machine- with her love of telling stories. She used to write her own episodes of Friends and act them out in front of her family (in fact she's sure she put Ross and Rachel together first!)

A careers adviser at school once told Lynsey writing wasn’t a “good option” and for a few years, she believed her. She tried a little bit of everything, including make-up artistry, teaching and doing admin for a chocolate fountain company. The free chocolate was brilliant. When Lynsey left my job a couple of years ago, she started writing full-time while she looked for another one. As soon as she started working on her story, Lynsey fell in love and decided to finally pursue her dream. She haven’t looked back since.

When Lynsey's not writing, eating cake or drinking tea, she's daydreaming about the day Dylan O’Brien FINALLY realises they're meant to be together. It’ll happen one day…

Exclusive - Chapter One - The Aubrey Rules by Aven Ellis

The Aubrey Rules-Chicago on Ice Series #1

What They Say:

Some of the Aubrey Rules to Live By:

*If I’m going to indulge in French fries, I must add extra time to the treadmill the next day.

*Always keep your work and private life separate.

*Being open to new experiences will never involve eating kale. 

*Never, ever date a professional athlete.

For Chicago social media professional Aubrey Paige, the rules are everything. So much so that Aubrey has painstakingly written her rules for living into a polka-dot Kate Spade notebook that she carries with her at all times. It’s her personal guidebook to living her life. These rules are the Holy Grail—ones never to be broken. They guide her actions for everything, from dealing with workplace drama to finding a great guy to date. After all, these are her own rules, built from her life experiences and observations. So they have to be perfect, right?

Or are they?

Because when Aubrey meets a cute Canadian, she suddenly finds her rules being tested and challenged in ways she never dreamed possible. Beckett Riley is the shy, quiet, determined captain of the Chicago Buffaloes, a hockey team on the verge of turning the corner to becoming a winning organization. He’s Aubrey's opposite, with so many qualities that Aubrey had listed as ones she’d never want in a man. 

Yet Aubrey finds herself drawn to Beckett in ways she’s never known. And when she unexpectedly finds herself working with Beckett, she wonders if rules are meant to be broken after all . . .

Here's the Goodreads link 
Chapter One

The Aubrey Rules To Live By, Rule #1: Never, ever, be late for anything.

I sprint toward the elevator in complete panic mode. This is not happening. I must be having one of those nightmares, and any second I’ll wake up.
Because if I’m not dreaming, I’m awake. Obviously. Which also means I overslept this morning. I couldn’t sleep last night due to anxiety, and I accidentally turned the alarm off on my phone instead of hitting snooze this morning. Which began a domino effect: I overslept. I didn’t have time to get my red curly locks under control with a flat iron, and I’m not going to arrive on time for a job interview with one of the chicest social media firms in Chicago.
I frantically jab the elevator button. This is my first professional interview since I graduated from the University of Washington last month. I have to get this job. I need this job.
I want this job.
I press the button again. “Come on, come on!” I begin pacing. I feel as if I want to throw up. I’m never late. I’m the girl who is ten minutes early to everything. Even for meeting a friend at Starbucks. So the fact that I’m late to the most important interview ever makes me absolutely sick to my stomach.
The doors open and I run in, but my boot heel catches in the crack. I fly forward, and my purse swings over my shoulder in a loop. I land flat on my face, and the entire contents rain down on the floor. Then I hear a clink. Like something falling down the crack between the hallway floor and the elevator.
“Miss, are you okay?” a male voice asks me. “Are you hurt?”
I immediately push myself up to my hands and knees. My curly hair is blocking my vision, and I shove it out of the way so I can see. There is a stranger kneeling in front of me.
A very handsome stranger.
One with dark-brown hair and the loveliest chocolate-brown eyes I’ve ever seen.
Who has just seen me trip, fall flat on my face, andoh my God—is his shoe on top of one of my tampons?
I quickly begin grabbing my things and throwing them back into my Tory Burch tote. “I’m fine,” I say, keeping my eyes down, praying he somehow moves and I can swipe the tampon before he notices it. “Thank you.”
“Are you sure? You hit the floor really hard,” he says.
“Um, I’m good.”
“Here, let me help you,” he says, reaching for my lipstick case.
“No!” I cry, mortified, sticking out my hand. “Don’t!”
His large brown eyes widen in surprise. “No? You’re saying no to me helping you?”
            “Yes,” I say, willing him to move his foot.
Okay, so mental telepathy only works on TV because it sure as hell isn’t working now.
I go back to scooping up the millions of receipts I had squirreled away in my purse, along with my huge collection of drugstore mascaras, lipsticks, and Tic Tacs.
“Why?” he asks, a bewildered expression on his face.
I glance up at him as I toss my wallet back into my bag. Oh, wow, he’s super cute. I’d have to say he’s in his mid-twenties, and I can’t get over how expressive his handsome face is.
I grab my iPhone and cast my eyes back down. “It’s my mess. You shouldn’t have to help me clean it up.”
“A planner?” he asks, holding up my gold polka dot Kate Spade planner toward me. “Aren’t these out of style? Don’t you use your phone for stuff like that?”
I pause. He’s Canadian. I know he’s Canadian from the way he said “out,” with a sort of lilt at the end of the word.
“That’s not a planner,” I say, taking it from him. “It’s my rule book.”
“Rule book?”
“Yes.” I drop it into my tote as I continue to pick up stuff off the floor. “Life is chaos. I like jotting down rules for my career and love life and use them as a guide to keep me organized. Some are serious, some are funny. But they’re all designed to keep me from wasting time. So I don’t make mistakes that will hurt me and it’s fun to do an—”
“You write rules for your love life?” he interrupts.
I stop speaking. I realize he’s staring at me like I’m a puzzle he’s trying to figure out.
Then a slow smile spreads across his face. “You have an odd idea of a good time.”
Oooooooooh my. He has a gorgeous smile.
Suddenly I realize I don’t have my keys. “Keys,” I say, frantically searching around. “Where are my keys?”
He looks down. “Uh,” he says, picking my tampon up. “Um . . . here.”
GAAAAAAAAH! All of a sudden my face is burning hot.
I have a feeling it matches my hair.
Which is flame red.
I gulp. “Um, thanks,” I say, wishing I could fall down the crack in between the hallway and the elevator.
The crack.
The clank.
No keys.
“Oh my God!” I cry, standing straight up in a panic. “My keys! My keys fell down there!” I point frantically.
“Are you sure?” he asks, standing up and peering down the gap.
“Shit! I’m screwed! I’m late for a job interview and I look like crap and you picked up my tampon, which is mortifying, and now I have to deal with the keys and who knows if I’ll get there on time and I’m so pissed off and why isn’t this elevator moving?”
And before I can stop myself, I kick the side of the elevator wall in frustration, leaving a huge scuff on my boot. Perfect.
“And now I’ve ruined my boot and this is the worst day ever!” I yell.
I glance at him. Now that I’ve had my outburst, I notice that the cute Canadian is big. 6’3 or so. His chest is massive and is hugged by the navy-blue sweater and white T-shirt he’s wearing underneath his gray overcoat. My eyes skim downward, and holy hell his thighs are huge in those jeans and—
“I stopped the elevator with the emergency button to make sure you were okay,” he says simply, snapping me from my thoughts. His voice is soothing, as if he’s trying to calm me. He walks over to it and hits another button, and the doors close and we start going down. Then he turns to me. “We can have someone call the elevator service company to get the keys.”
I throw my hands to my head. “I don’t have time for this! I have a very important job interview. Do you know what my job is right now? I stage condos for sale. I live in other people’s homes with strange furniture and I’m practically a freaking nomad because I move all the time. If I don’t get this job, I’m still a nomad with no belongings other than my rule book!”
I glance over at him. Now his brow is creased. Oh, this keeps getting worse and worse. Now I’ve blown up, kicked a wall, and told him my only form of employment is moving from condo to condo out of a suitcase.
And I’m sure the cute Canadian is desperate for this elevator to hit the lobby so he can run out the doors as fast as he can to get away from the lunatic hothead otherwise known as Aubrey.
“You could start with letting the front office know your keys fell down the elevator shaft,” he suggests. “Then I could take you to your interview. By the time you’re done, they might have your keys.”
“Whoa,” I say, putting my hand out and taking a step back. “I don’t know you. Why would I get in a car with you? You could be some kind of pervert serial killer kind of guy.”
            “You think I’m a serial killer?” he asks, an amused tone in his voice.
            “That’s not what I said. I said you could be.”
Suddenly he bursts out laughing. “Trust me, I’m not.”
            “Why should I? I don’t know you. Just because you’re cute and say ‘trust me’ doesn’t mean I should,” I say.
Then I realize I told him he was cute.
Shit, shit, shit.
The elevator doors open, and I flee, praying the cute Canadian goes on his way. I don’t even look backward. I hurry to the front desk of the luxury high-rise.
“I have a serious problem,” I blurt out. “I dropped my keys down the elevator shaft and I-”
“You what?” the girl asks, wrinkling her brow.
“I dropped my keys down the shaft,” I repeat. “I need someone to get them. Right now. My name is Aubrey Paige and I live in 14F. And I need to have someone get them and I’ll pick them up later but I have to go and this is critical because I need them back so I can—”
“I’m sorry, you’re talking too fast,” the girl interrupts. “Aubrey Paige what?
            “Aubrey Paige! Paige is my last name. And I need to go—”
“Hold on, Ms. Paige. I need to call maintenance to see what we need to do. Now you say they fell down the elevator shaft?” she asks as she picks up the phone and punches a button.
Hold? I don’t have time to hold! I’m about to say more when suddenly the Canadian steps forward.
“Excuse me,” he says.
Another desk person glances up. “Oh, hey, Beckett,” the man says, his eyes shining. “Great game last night in LA. That’s your third hat trick of the season, isn’t it?”
“Yeah, but it wouldn’t have happened without some great passes from my teammates.”
I freeze. Teammates?
“Um, could you verify who I am for this lady, please?” he asks, nodding in my direction.
The guy grins. “This is Beckett Riley, none other than captain of the Chicago Buffaloes.”
“What?” I say, confused.
“The professional hockey team,” the man continues. “This is our captain. And one of the best players in the National Hockey League.”
I know my mouth is hanging open. This cute Canadian is a professional hockey player?
“I told you I wasn’t a serial killer,” he says, cocking an eyebrow at me.
For once, I don’t ramble. I keep my stupid mouth shut.
“So, since I’m not a criminal, I can drive you to your interview, and with James here as my witness, I promise to bring you back alive. If you’ll let me drive you, that is. But it’s your call. So what is it going to be, Aubrey?”

Fledgling cover

Can one boy stand between two kingdoms at war?
Jaevid Broadfeather has grown up as a wartime refugee, hiding from the world because of his mixed racial heritage. He feels his future is hopeless, until a chance encounter with a wild dragon lands him in Blybrig Academy—a place usually forbidden to anyone but the rich and royal. But Jaevid’s case is special; no dragon has voluntarily chosen a rider in decades, so the proud riders of Blybrig must begrudgingly let him join their brotherhood despite his bloodline. Lieutenant Sile Derrick, a sternly tempered man with a mysterious past, becomes his instructor and immediately takes a peculiar interest in Jaevid’s future.
While struggling through the rigorous physical demands of training, things begin to go awry. Jaevid witnesses the king’s private guards kidnapping Sile in the dead of night. When none of the elder riders are willing to help him, Jaevid begins a dangerous adventure to save his instructor.
Everything Jaevid learned at the academy will now be put to the ultimate test.

What kind of power is lurking inside him? After a year of training to become a dragonrider, Jaevid Broadfeather has been sent home to rest during a three-month interlude. But when he returns to find the king drake has chosen Beckah Derrick as his new rider, Jaevid realizes something big is about to happen. Every fiber of his being is pushed to the breaking point as Jaevid battles through his avian year, preparing for the final graduation test of the battle scenario. But there is more standing in his way than a few pushups and fancy sword moves. Jaevid must face a new fear as he is tormented by a gruesome nightmare of a mysterious gray elf warrior murdering the royal family of Maldobar. It seems obvious to him that this is some kind of message about how the war started long ago—until Felix assures him the king is very much alive. With his strange powers growing stronger by the day, and that violent dream replaying in his mind every night, Jaevid no longer wonders if he will pass his avian year or not—he wonders if he will even survive it. The truth will soon be set loose.

Jo's Review - Unbound & Uncovered - Colours of Love by Kathryn Taylor

What They Say:

Grace Lawson has never taken much notice of men. Preferring to remain out of the limelight, she has lived a self-imposed sheltered life. And yet when she secures an internship with the prestigious investment firm Huntington Ventures in London, her excitement is as much to do with the possibility of meeting its founder, the viscountJonathan Huntington, as it is to do with the opportunity…

Despite having seen and admired pictures of Jonathan, nothing can quite prepare Grace for meeting the man. Jonathan is a rich and breathtakingly attractive aristocrat – not someone that Grace should even dare dream of. And yet she can’t get him out of her head. Sensing that her attraction is mutualGrace is determined to have her way and seduce him. But Jonathan is no Prince Charming. When he reveals to her exactly what being with him would entail, Grace realises just how dangerous this man could be…and just how dangerous her own feelings are

Passionate, steamy and sensual, and yet at its heart, a romantic love story, Unbound is the first in the Colours of Love trilogy. The sequels Uncovered and Unleashed will be published later this year.

What I Say:

I would like to thank Hayley Steed and author Kathryn Taylor for sending me a copy of these books in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Grace is a naive and hardly travelled American who lands in the UK to take up an internship with Huntingdon Ventures.  I say Grace is naive when she lands in the UK and spots Jonathan Huntingdon, owner of the company she is going to be working for at the airport this sets of a chain of events that Grace can only dream about.

I did like Grace as a main character and her internal struggles were written really well.  Jonathan as the 'Christian Grey' character is easily more likeable the 'Christian Grey' himself.  Jonathan as secrets that Grace is intrigued to find out about, especially the club that he visits.  He is charming when he wants to be yet commanding as well.  He tries to keep Grace at a distance but also close by, all very confusing for Grace.

Grace begins to fall in love with Jonathon despite her new flatmate Annie's advice not to.

This is an erotic read but for me this story could be so much more if the author had spent more time on the story around Grace and Jonathan.  There are other great characters in Alex (Jonathon's business partner), Sarah (his sister) and Graces flatmates.  Also the sinister Japanese business colleague Yuto Nagato.  Having said that the erotic scenes in this book are really well written and steamy.  

4 out of 5 Stars

What They Say:

Having journeyed to England from Chicago for an internship with Huntington Ventures, Grace Lawson fell irrevocably in love with her boss, Jonathan Huntington and together, they are in the early stages of a passionate affair. But she knows she wants more, something Jonathan isn’t prepared to give her yet, or perhaps ever.

As Grace begins to explore her sexual prowess with Jonathan, he realises he doesn’t want to share her and he quits his seedy club, reluctantly agrees to exclusivity and even takes Grace back to his family home. But with the lecherous Yuto Nagako threatening to wreak havoc on Jonathan’s expanding business if he doesn’t either allow him to have Grace too or get rid of her completely, Grace starts to doubt their future together. Jonathan refuses to act like a couple yet their sexual connection is more powerful than ever.

But Jonathan’s relationship with his father is even more dark and twisted than his relationship with Grace. His sister, Sarah, is the one thing holding the family together and she is starting to wonder whether Grace may just be the woman for her brother. As the secrets of Jonathan’s childhood unravel, Grace begins to understand his cold exterior but longs for the man underneath. Eventually, as her internship comes to an end, she has to decide whether to stay with Jonathan or return home. Can she ever win his heart as well as his body? Or will she have to choose to live without him, knowing their differences are just too much?

What I Say:

At the beginning of this book I was cheering Jonathan along as he agreed to give Grace part of what she wanted and that was to be in an exclusive relationship.

What I did get a little tired was the never ending sex scenes, but as it's an erotic novel I guess they have to be in there, as I said with book one there is so much more to these books than just the sex and I found myself wishing the author would spend far more time on the other things in Grace and Jonathan's relationship.

Having said that Grace really did start to annoy me, one minute she was a sexy goddess the next she was a dithering wreck where Jonathan only had to look at her and she was a mess.  I really wanted Grace to stand up to him more.  

I was also left feeling let down by the whole Yuto saga and the reason Jonathan is the way that he is. .

On the whole it has left me disappointed, in the same way I was disappointed in Fifty Shades of Grey, the difference with these books are they are well written on the whole, they just don't explore the outside factors Grace and Jonathans relationship for me, but if you like a book with great sex scenes then this is worth the read.

3 out of 5 stars

Guest Post

How did you get into erotica and how do you balance creating sexy and sultry characters with their depth, personality and interesting plot…

I thrive on love stories, it’s my passion to write about two people finding true love. And since I see sexual attraction as a vital part of a relationship it’s always part of my stories. With “Colours of Love” I simply explored it a bit more, took it further.  I think the most important thing about writing a gripping love story is to fall in love with the hero yourself. And I do, every time. It’s the greatest joy with writing – that you can create those fascinating men who are pure temptation. They come at a price though, they have to since I want to create a compelling read. There has to be a challenge in it, a problem that needs to be solved – otherwise the story isn’t worth telling. So I basically just mix those three ingredients: sexy heroes, a passionate love and a reason why this love is absolutely out of the question. The rest is, well, history.  

About The Author

Kathryn Taylor wrote her first story when she was eleven years old, and was determined from then on that her future career would be as a writer. After a few career detours and a happy ending in her personal life, her dream finally came true, and her first novel Unbound: Colours of Love was published in Germany in 2012, and has been translated into Italian, French and English. She is available for interview.

A Time for Living (Polwenna Bay Book 2) by Ruth Saberton

What They Say:

Is there ever a right time for love?

Feisty horsewoman, Morwenna Tremaine, has always known what she wants from life and success as a three day event rider is all she's ever dreamed of. Mo has neither the time nor the inclination for love. Even if she did it wouldn't be with a man who stands for everything she despises...

Beneath a tough and determined exterior, businessman Ashley Carstairs harbours a dark secret that threatens to destroy everything he holds dear. Although aware that he is heading for trouble, he finds himself increasingly drawn to the one woman he knows he should stay away from - for both their sakes.

As the autumn nights draw in and the trickling sands of time gather speed, emotions run higher than the tides and Mo finds herself unable to step away. What is Ashley hiding? Is there more to him that meets the eye? And will his secret destroy everything she now holds dear?

What I Say:

I would like to thank Ruth Saberton for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Ruth takes us back into the lovely village of Polwenna Bay, a couple of months on from the first book in this series Runaway Summer.

This books follows the story of Mowenna or Mo Tremaine, Mo is just about holding on to her business and her temper, she is also left wondering why her arch enemy Ashley (Cashley to the locals) Carstairs left her the woods they were bitterly fighting over.  Ashley having disappeared from Polwenna Bay returns to set Mo heart fluttering although she tries to deny how much he affects her.

Don't get me wrong this isn't just about Mo and Ashley, it's about how a small villages can come together to save to try and save the local church with hilarious consequences.  Unlike the original books in the series this is told from Mo, Ashley and Jules (the local vicars PoV).  I loved Mo in book one and was so pleased to find that this was her story.  Ashley certainly comes into his own in the book and at times Ruth had me crying my eyes out.

The two characters I really loved were Jules and Danny (Mo's brother) and can't wait to read more about these two.  One character from book one I missed was Danny's son Morgan. 

A really enjoyable and emotional read.  I for one can't wait to read more books in this series, with a big family of Tremaines to write about, plus a whole host of other characters I hope Ruth writes a lot more stories about Polwenna Bay.

About The Author

Ruth Saberton always knew she wanted to be a writer. From an early age she was busy filling note books with stories and rather than hero worshipping Wham and Duran Duran (which ages her!) Ruth's heroes were Jilly Cooper and Jackie Collins. Several attempts at bodice rippers later, Ruth turned her attention to romance and now focuses on writing romantic comedies. Her debut novel, 'Katy Carter Wants a Hero' was championed by Richard and Judy and nominated for the RNA's Romantic Comedy of the Year Award as well as being described by Heat Magazine as, 'the heir apparent to Bridget Jones'. Ruth writes under her own name, but also has several pen names which include Jessica Fox, Georgie Carter, Holly Cavendish and Lucy Hepburn. Her boyfriend says he has many women all rolled into one! 

Ruth is published by Orion, Pan Macmillan, Harper Collins and Notting Hill Press. Although she loves the UK, Ruth now lives in the Caribbean where she continues to write romances, teen novels and planning that bodice ripper! Her latest book, Escape for the Summer, is set in Cornwall but she is currently writing one set on Grand Cayman.

Ruth loves to to talk to her readers.
