ABOUT ALL CLOSED OFF (Releasing May 1, 2017):

Stella Santos is fine.

Maybe something terrible happened to her that she can’t even remember. And maybe it drives her crazy when her friends treat her like she’s on the verge of breaking because of it. Maybe it feels even worse when they do what she asks and pretend that it never happened at all. And maybe she’s been getting harassing emails and messages for months from people who don’t even know her, but hate her all the same.
But none of that matters because she’s just fine.
For Ryan Blake, Stella was always that girl. Vibrant and hilarious and beautiful. He wanted her as his best friend. His more than friends. His everything and anything that she would give him. Which these days is a whole lot of nothing. She gets angry when he’s there. Angry when he’s not there. Angry when he tries to talk and when he doesn’t.
When Stella devises an unconventional art project for one of her classes all about exploring intimacy—between both friends and strangers—Ryan finds himself stepping in as guinea pig after one of her subjects bails. What was supposed to be an objective and artistic look at emotion and secrets and sex suddenly becomes much more personal. When he hits it off with another girl from the project, Stella will have to decide if she’s willing to do more than make art about intimacy. To keep him, she’ll have to open up and let herself be the one thing she swore she’d never be again.
Vulnerable.

fire-in-you-cover


About FIRE IN YOU (Standalone Contemporary Romance Releasing November 28, 2016): From the # 1 New York Times and International bestselling author comes a richly moving story about heartbreak and guilt, second chances and hope. Full of familiar, fan-favorite characters and no two people more deserving of a happy ending, Fire In You will burn bright beyond the last page…

Jillian Lima’s whole world was destroyed in a span of a few hours. The same night her childhood love, Brock ‘the Beast’ Mitchell, broke her heart, her life was irrevocably altered by the hand of a stranger with a gun.  It takes six years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of her life, but Jillian is finally ready to stop existing in a past full of pain and regret. She takes a job at her father’s martial arts Academy and she’s going out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum. Jillian is determined to start living. She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But he’s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older, he’s impossibly more handsome, more teasing and more everything. And when he sees Jillian, he’s no longer capable of thinking of her as the little girl who was his shadow growing up or the daughter of the man who gave him a second chance at life. He sees the woman who’d always been there for him, the one person who believed in him no matter what. Brock knows she’s the one he should’ve made his, and what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks more than her heart, because when the sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could lay waste to everything they’ve fought to build together, and destroy the dreams of those they care most about.

REVIEW: Sweet Cheeks by K. Bromberg

EEEPPPP!!! I know its been a while since I've written a blog post, and I deeply apologize. Life has been completely crazy lately. But I promise I am back and I could not be more excited about bringing you guys this review. I hope that you all enjoy it as much as I did! Make sure you go and grab yourself a copy. And without further adeu....I bring you Sweet Cheeks!



Title: Sweet Cheeks
Author:  K. Bromberg
Pub Date: November 10, 2016



     sweetcheeks_frontcover


An all new second chance love story by the New York Times Bestselling author of the beloved Driven series. It all started with the invitation. To my ex-fiance’s new wedding. I should have ignored it. Thrown it away. Set it afire. But I didn’t. I replied. With a plus one. And then my assistant accidentally mailed it. Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye. When he showed up out of the blue ten years later, I should have known to steer clear of him. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex’s wedding. I should have never let him kiss me. But I didn’t. And now we’re left wondering if the pieces of the life we once shared still fit together somehow. First loves are hard to forget. The question is, do we want to forget? Or do we risk the chance and see what happens next?

*********************************************************************************





K. Bromberg has been an author on my TBR list for quite sometime. I just haven't had the time with work to commit to another series. But when I saw that she was writing a stand alone I knew I knew I had to read it! I could not have been more excited when I saw I was chosen to receive an advanced copy to read and review.
Sweet Cheeks is a hilarious, moving, and very romantic second chance at love story.  And you all know how I'm a sucker for second chance stories. They just pull at my heart strings. And K. Bromberg did not disappoint with this one. She had me wanting more from the very beginning.

I could not help but fall in love and root for Saylor and Hayes. Childhood best friends turned high school sweet hearts with a rocky past. Brought together after 10 years of silence because of a pact that Hayes made with Saylors brother Ryder.



Saylor has been invited to her Ex. Finances wedding. And by mistake the RSVP had been sent. Saylors brother gets it in his head that it will help their business if she went to the wedding and made nice with everyone and show that even though she was the one that walked away her life couldn't be better. Hence the appearance of Hayes. Of course Saylor can't go to the wedding alone, especially since she replied with a plus one on the RSVP card.

Now the two of them are stuck together on an exotic tropical island. Acting like they are madly in love.  Of course, emotions begin to run high,  buried feelings begin surface,  and ultimately choices will have to be made. 
I loved the way the author wrote these characters. Even though its not everyday you find an actor going home to a small town. The  whole scenario seemed believable.  Everything seemed so natural and unforced.  The chemistry between the characters was phenomenal. Made me wish I had a high school sweet heart in my life.  It was just too cute.




Not to mention the witty banter between the characters, just great. Absolutely loved it. I could not have asked for more in a male lead. Strong, sexy, funny, and of course sweet. As well as an amazingly determined, strong willed, sweet, damaged , feisty female lead. 

When you are first introduced to the characters you know that they both has a past. Saylor, with her ex-fiance and Hayes with Saylor. You aren't sure why she would walk away from the so called "perfect man." and on the other hand you see that Hayes still affects her when he shows up to help her in this predicament that she is in. Even though she doesn't believe that she is in. And you're not exactly sure of the past that the two of them have (Saylor and Hayes.) All you know is that he left with out a word 10 years prior and she was heartbroken. But it seems that there was more to him leaving, which is told through out the book. 





While i was reading I could feel what each character was going through. When they were sad I felt sad, and when they were happy, I felt happy. When there was love in the air, oh boy I felt it. You knew from the moment that these two were thrown together that sparks were going to fly and boy did they. I will also warn you that by the end of this book you are going to be craving cupcakes. Through out reading this book, with all the talk about cupcakes I was like I need those....like now. I almost went and baked some because I was craving them so badly.

The setting of this story was beautiful and I could not have picked a better setting for a second chance love story then a tropical island/ small town. Creating a romantic setting as well as places that in sighted trips down memory lane. Well played K. Bromberg, well played.

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love. She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California. On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift), and a novella (UnRaveled). She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out November 14th. Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (2 books: The Player, The Catch) and the Everyday Heroes series (3 books: Cuffed, Combust, and Cockpit). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017. She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.

Addicted Series Love Fest -Letter to Krista and Becca Ritchie



Hello Fellow Readers!

Due to the release of the final Addicted Series/Calloway Sisters novel on May 20th! The Fizzle Force wanted to do our own tribute and love to this wonderful series and its amazing authors!!

So I decided to show my addicted series love by just expressing how much I love these characters in the form of a goodbye/ thank you letter!

-To Krista and Becca

I have come to absolutely love these characters, each and everyone. From the two that started it all Lily and Lo all the way to Sadie the cat! Through all of these novels, we have laughed, cried, mourned, evolved, and fallen in love with these characters. From their highest achievements to their lowest of lows, we have been through it all.

Its hard not to become attached to characters that feel so real and normal, despite the fact that are children of millionaire moguls. They each had their own problems and worked through them, but I think what has stuck with me the most through all these books is they have one common theme.

FAMILY IS EVERYTHING!

No matter what either of them have gone through, they have gone through it together. When one of them was hurting they all were hurting.

Which is something that I have always admired about them. The way that they were a force to be reckoned with when something went wrong. Even if they weren't always fond of each other *cough* Rose and Lo *cough* haha. However,  In the end I believe that each and everyone of them would gladly lay down their lives to protect the other.

Not to mention they are all quirky and funny as hell, as well huge nerds. Well I cant necessarily call Connor and Rose Cobalt  nerds. They would be the know it all's of the group, I say that in the nicest way possible, because if I was ever in trouble those are the two I would want in my corner getting me out of any sticky situation. Even though I love Daisy, Lily, Lo, and Ryke.

These feelings that we have about these characters is a huge testament to Krista and Becca! The wonderful, talented, amazing authors who created and brought these unbelievable characters to life.
There are no amount of words that could be written to express the amount of gratitude and love that we all have for you! I can not tell you how many times I've been in a predicament and had to think what would Connor Cobalt do? Especially when choosing what I wear, Rose Calloway has been a huge influence. lol. I even tried to learn French because of those two. It didn't go so well. But its the attempt that counts right. 

The friendships that have also our been created from our love of this series. Is a friendship that will last long after this series is over.   

I still cant believe that its coming to an end. I feel like I'm losing Harry Potter all over again! Bu I can not be more excited to see what the future holds, as well as what happens in Some Kind of Perfect!

I know im kind of all over the place. Ive never been good with exspressing emorions into words. And I kind of feel all over the place, but I guess what I'm trying to say  is THANK YOU!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating these realistic, strong, caring, witty, brave, and loyal characters for us readers!


With Love and Thanks,

Kaitlan

Addicted Series Full-Length Epilogue Novelfalling in love was just the beginning





I am IN LOVE with this series, and these characters! I could be more excited and sad  for the release of this book. These characters have formed a special place in my heart and I am in no way ready to say goodbye! But I also can not wait to see how it all ends. These characters seriously feel like old friends, and have grown so much throughout the series. However, even though it will break my heart to have to say goodbye.  All good things must come to an end right. The best thing about books though, is that it never really ends. We can always go back and revisit our favorite characters over and over again. I say this now, but I guarantee that when I finish this book I will be a blubbering mess of feels.

If you have read this series then you know exactly what I am talking about, and if you have not yet met these wonderful characters. You are seriously missing out and I encourage you wholeheartedly to go and grab a copy of Addicted To You, the novel that started it all!

Monday Musts (1)

Monday Musts


Hello my fellow readers!

I know that it has been a while since I last posted. But my friend Kim from Kimberlyfayereads showed me this weekly blog Meme. This meme was created by the lovely Jessica from Lovin Los Libros! Kim thought that it would be a good easy way to get back into the blogging world, and I can’t say that I disagree. So for this week lets take a look at my must reads, must listen, and must see!



MUST READ


Hooked


Hooked by Christine Manzari
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Suspense
Publication date: February 3, 2015
Publisher: Christine Manzari
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iTunes


If you ask the confident and snarky skater girl, and she’s in the mood to share, she’ll tell you her name is Cat. She might even tell you that she’s hooked on graffiti, 80s movies, and having fun—the riskier the better. Cat will share a good time with you, but she won’t ever trust you enough to share her heart. It’s protected by secrets and she’d like to keep it that way.

Cat knows one thing for certain: Love isn’t really her thing.

If you ask the confident and rich pretty boy, he might tell you his name is Huck. He might even tell you he loves a challenge and is used to getting his way. He won’t tell you that his life is a mess because he risked his heart by trusting the wrong girl. Huck is ready for a change, he just wasn’t ready to get hooked on someone like Cat.

Huck knows one thing for certain: Love hasn’t done him any favors, but Cat just might be worth the risk.

Cat and Huck think a one-night stand seems harmless, but when all the little secrets they didn’t share turn out to be toxic truths, they realize how easily a one-night stand (or a few) could ruin everything.

The thing is, you can be ruined in more than one way. Once you’re HOOKED, what wouldn’t you risk for the chance at more?

I just finished this book before adding it to this weeks post! I am IN LOVE with this book. It took me over a year to read. But when I finally picked it up, I could not put this book down. The chemistry between the main characters was electrifying, and their witty banter was intoxicating. The writing was captivating and you could not wait to see what happens next. I can not say enough good things about this book. If you get a chance add it to your goodreads and give it a read!


*****************************************************************************

Release Day Blast: Brazen Novels by Tessa Bailey, Katee Roberts, and Diane Alberts



Looking for some naughty reads that are oh-so-nice? Welcome the newest Brazen releases to your ereader today!

***
Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey


Jasmine Taveras is the reason Sarge Purcell grabbed his six-string and bailed the hell out of New Jersey four years ago. She's the fuel for every song he's ever written—each one laced with bitter, hard-edged, hungry lust. Now, with his hugely successful band on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that this “kid” turned into every inch the man she's always needed...

Men are slim pickings for a single factory girl in Hook, New Jersey…until tall, broad-shouldered hotness walks—or rather storms—into Jasmine's life. Sarge's return shouldn't affect her this way. He's her best friend's much younger kid brother, and the kind of rough, gritty, sexiness Jasmine has no right to taste for herself. Even if he lets her.

But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it...

His to Take by Katee Robert


Erin Robinson is having an epically bad year. Her blossoming career on Broadway tanked, forcing her to crawl back to home to Wellington. The icing on her failure cake? Her former on-again, off-again fling is in town, and the sexy Marine is taking up way too much space.

Warren Davis always knew Erin was special, which is exactly why he can’t have her. A girl like her deserves something permanent—something neither of them wants. But now that they’re both back in town and she’s right there in front of him, a challenge in her eyes he’s never been able to resist, he’s questioning everything.

That challenge quickly escalates into an epic game of Truth or Dare. Erin’s sure she’s got him on lock, but as the night progresses, Warren’s dares intensify, drowning her in lust. But with the past still breathing down their necks, there’s no way either of them can win…

Say You're Mine by Diane Alberts


Navy SEAL Steven Thomas has only ever been able to count on three things: waking up in the morning, going to sleep sometime during the night, and Lauren Brixton. She’s been his best friend since grade school, and what they have is the only relationship he’s managed not to ruin.

Until one drunken night puts that all in jeopardy.

Lauren’s watched Steven flit from one-night stand to one-night stand, seemingly not interested in something more. So when the long-ignored attraction between the two of them blows up in their faces, she does the only thing she can—she pretends she doesn’t want him. But all’s fair in love and war, and Steven’s not about to lose the only person in his life who matters…

BLOG TOUR- Review & Giveaway: NOVEMBER 9 By Colleen Hoover


Hello Readers!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog tour stop for Colleen Hoover's newest novel November 9! I could not be more elated to bring you my review for this wonderful novel. I could not get enough of this book. I read this novel at the beginning of November and I am still thinking about it. Fallon and Ben's story is one to last through all the ages! Now before we get to my thoughts and the giveaway, here's a little bit about the book!


Title: November 9
Author: Colleen Hoover
Publisher: Atria Books Paperback
Pages: 320 pages
Pub Date: November 10, 2015



Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day of her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon—and simultaneously his novel—be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?






**********************************************************************************************************************************



Colleen Hoover is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Slammed, This Girl, Point of Retreat, Hopeless, Losing Hope, Finding Cinderella, Maybe Someday, Ugly Love, Maybe Not, and Confess. She lives in Texas with her husband and their three boys.



*********************************************************************************


Even though it has been almost a month since I read this amazing novel, and the feels are still going strong I am going to do my best to get coherent thoughts written down. As you all know I am a HUGE Colleen Hoover Fan. There has not been a book of her's that I have not loved. She is one of my instant buy authors. The minute I know she has a new book coming out. I've got to have it. With November 9, there was no disappointment.  I truly believe that Colleen Hoover has out done herself with her latest novel. 

From the minute you turn the first page and meet Fallon. This young actress who has suffered a tragic accident, feisty, strong, and witty! However, not away at how strong she really is. You just felt this instant connection with her. She is having an argument with her father, which we all have done with a parent a time or two. You cant help but root for her to prove her father wrong. Without getting to spoilerish, you'll see what I mean. 

Then in walks the WONDERFUL Ben!! Making his grand entrance, and probably one of my favorite book entrances. I LOVED him from that moment. I knew though that he was going to break my heart, because there was no way you couldn't fall in love with Ben. He is charismatic, witty, smart, and sexy as hell!

The way this story was told was fantastic. How Fallon and Ben decide after having an amazing day together, to meet every year for the next five years. That they will not follow each other on social media of any kind, or exchange phone numbers. But that they will meet up on the same day, November 9 at the same restaurant they first met to catch up.  Now of course there is much drama, and things happen. You find yourself yelling at the book, "WHY CANT YOU JUST EXCHANGE PHONE NUMBERS!! "

A quick story, I was reading this book at work (Barnes & Noble) and I only have the kindle app on my phone. So I'm reading and it gets to a specific part in the book. I am literally crouched down beind the registers. Holding my phone inches away from my face, practically in tears. I knew I should stop but I could not help myself, I needed more! It got so bad my manager heard me, came back to the music department and I make-up running down my cheeks. Lets just say I am no longer allowed to read at work. lol. But it was so worth it!




Now back to the book and my thoughts.....

The writing of this novel is amazing, I have half the book highlighted because there are so many great quotes throughout the book. 

You could relate to both Fallon and Ben in such different ways. Since Fallon was in a horrific fire when she was younger, she has major confidence issues that she is learning to live with. Issues that make her vulnerable when she is with Ben. But the most beautiful thing about Fallon and Ben's relationship is that he brings out this confidence in her. Which I think is the most perfect thing in the world. Every woman, and man should have the person in their life that just makes them feel better about themselves and make them realize that no matter what. They matter, their feelings matter, and its ok.

And Ben has secrets of his own, but Fallon helps Ben heal in ways that I don't think she will fully ever understand. Just like he will never fully understand what he's done for her. The development of their characters, watching them grow. It was like watching a flower bloom in the spring, and the color of the leaves changing in the fall. Absolutely breath taking to watch and I still want more!!

Bravo Colleen! Bravo!

Series: Calloway Sisters #4
Pub Date: November 20th, 2015


SUMMARY

With a seven-year age difference, Ryke & Daisy have faced an uphill battle in the eyes of the world and their families. Known as the most adventurous, fast-paced couple — their next step has always been elusive to the rabid media.

Behind the scenes, heartbreaking troubles continue to test Ryke & Daisy’s resilience and shape their future together.

They promise:

To never slow down.
To never compromise who they are.
To never abandon their love for each other.

But preserving their happiness also means adding more risks. Ones that Connor Cobalt wouldn’t even take. As a professional free-solo climber, Ryke is no stranger to risk, but his next step with Daisy wagers more than just his health.

With their lives on the line, Ryke &  Daisy head towards the vast, wild unknown in this epic final conclusion to the Addicted series.

EXCERPT #5  - Daisy's POV

Ryke leans forward now, enough to lift my chin with his fingers. “You’re fucking trouble, Calloway.” 

Then he kisses me, a tender kiss that aches to become ravenous. So we kiss again, his hand sliding through my hair, his tongue skillfully teasing mine. My chest rises in a deep, longing breath.
And my pulse thumps in excitement.

I smile into the last kiss, my lips tingling beneath his. “Wow,” I breathe when we break apart. “I think I’d like to get to know your mouth better.” I smile. “Let’s do that again.”
