Release Blitz - Finally Free by Riley Edwards

Finally Free (Levi): A Black Ops Romance
(The 707 Freedom Series Book 3)
by Riley Edwards

Blake Porter was one of the lucky ones. She’d met the man she was going to marry while she was in high school. She thought she was living a fairytale; the nerdy wannabe journalist dating the gorgeous star quarterback. One wrong move proved to irrevocably alter the course of their lives.

Betrayed by the girl he loved, Levi McCoy left for the Army and never looked back. Blake’s deception pierced his soul and shattered his heart. He used the pain to his advantage and became cold and calculating - the perfect Black Ops soldier.

Over a decade later, the 707 has been called in to rescue a reporter embedded in a deadly terrorist cell, and Levi’s shocked to learn it’s the one woman who’d once owned his heart. But Blake is no longer the naive teenager she’d once pretended to be. She’s something far more dangerous.

With bombs exploding, blood being spilled, and the terrorists closing in, they both battle the memories of their beautiful beginnings and shared history. Levi and Blake face off in a showdown of wills. In one corner, Levi is determined not to fall for the woman he’s never stopped loving. In the other, Blake tries to hold on to her self-respect and not beg Levi to hear the truth.

When the lies and deception are revealed will they survive with their hearts and lives intact?

About the Book

A sweet and sexy standalone romantic comedy!

The Romans had carpe diem; I have carpe David.

You know what's frustrating about the love of my life? He thinks he's in love with someone else...and has been dating her for five years! I know, right?

Then they suddenly break up. And he and I are on the same business trip. My chance to convince him we're meant to be!

Except when I go to his suite in my sexiest lingerie and with my sexiest toys, David's gone. Instead, there's some guy who thinks I'm the evening's professional entertainment.
As if!

Walking out of the room should've been the end of it...
...until that man, Luke, shows up again, ostensibly to return something I left behind. (A sex toy...a very very dirty one...)
...and refuses to go away because we apparently have "chemistry." And okay, he's admittedly hot, but there's more to a relationship than chemistry, right...?

What have I done to deserve this?

Review by Barbara

I just love this series. The laughs and embarrassing situations are plentiful in this must read RomCom. The author has written a funny, exciting and wild storyline that will have you laughing and smiling through the book.  And The three roommates, that make up the series, are a riot that you just don’t want to miss out on. That Sexy Stranger is Sammi’s story, but don’t fret, both Michelle and Jan (and of course Matt from Book 1 “That Man Next Door”) are present too. 

Sammi has been carrying a torch for David for 4 years but he’s been in a steady relationship the entire time and she is not a poacher. But now that he’s on the market again, Sammi sets out to surprise him in his hotel suite during a business trip and let him know how she feels. But what she doesn’t count on, is another man arriving instead of David and seeing her on the bed and her attempt at seduction.  To make matters worse, in her haste to leave, she forgets one of her new sex toys. Needless to say, Sammi is mortified! Let the fun be! Especially when Luke, the guy from the hotel room, shows up at her work to return her “Toy”, in the lunchroom, on the track where she runs, well you get the picture. 

This is a very well written book with characters that will worm their way straight into your heart. 2 Thumbs Up for a hilarious book/series that I highly recommend, you won’t regret it!

Review Tour for Escapades by Lilly Atlas

Title: Escapades
Series: Trident Ink Book 1
Author: Lilly Atlas
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Erotic Romance
Release Date: January 30, 2018


Alyssa Jackson is one of the lucky ones. She has a thriving business, great friends, devoted husband, adorable daughter, and a scorching hot sex life that would be the envy of any married couple. Then, one tragic loss flips her world upside down. Floundering and unsure of how to cope with their grief, Alyssa and her husband drift apart until they are living as roommates instead of a deeply connected couple. Alyssa will do anything to get the intense passion back into her life and marriage, no matter how far out of the box she has to step.

If there is one thing tattoo shop owner Derek knows, it’s that once he set his sights on his wife, he never wanted another woman. Years together haven't begun to put a dent in his desire for her. But everything falls apart when the anguish of loss barges into their lives. Adrift in his own suffering, Derek doesn’t realize how damaged his marriage is until his wife forces him to confront their issues. Now, he’ll do whatever it takes to get their lives back on track, even if the plan seems outrageous.

Review by Barbara

OH MY - the feels! The story is Jam-packed with emotions. The book is very well written with characters that will break your heart and have you cheering for a happy ending.

Alyssa and Derek are husband and wife and the the other half to each other’s Soul. They adore one another. They have the world by the tail in their private lives, their family life with their daughter and their professional lives. That is up until tragedy strikes and grief consumes them. 

The story will take you on an amazing journey as the couple deals with unbearable loss and pain while discovering a new path for their lives. It’s a wonderful journey of love, healing and moving forward that I highly recommend Reading, you won’t be sorry you did.

Well Played by J.S. Scott & Ruth Cardello is Live with Giveaway and Review



Graham is my brother's best friend. He’s always been my protector and my confidant because he accepts me the way I am—and not many do. I can’t imagine not having him in my life.

Our weekend together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college, Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother landed his dream job. It should have been the best time of our lives.

Except that the weekend started with me walking in on Graham's fiancée going down on my brother.

I complicated the situation by having sex with Graham after that, but I wanted to comfort him and, damn, when I saw desire in his eyes—for me—I couldn’t say no. I’ve wanted him for so long.

Now he doesn’t want to see me. He says he has a darker side he needs to protect me from.

Where do we go from here? Do I try to pretend to be his friend again or push him to open up to me and possibly lose him forever?


Sleeping with one of my best friends was not exactly a brilliant idea. It made things complicated, and I didn't do anything that threw my life into chaos. The fiancée her brother Jack, had stolen had been part of my life plan, one more step I was taking to be somebody. Granted, I hadn't been in love with my intended bride, but I didn't really know how to love anybody.

I survived.

I pushed to achieve more.

I battled my way to the top of the heap in my pro football career..

I'm a total dick, and I don't want Lauren to see the side of me that would trample over anybody to work my way up in the world.

Lauren sees me as a hero, a title I'd never gain with anybody else in my life, so I wanted to keep her sheltered from the hard realities of my life. I wanted her to continue to think I was a nice guy when I was really just the opposite.

We never should have crossed the line of going from friends to lovers.

There's too much Lauren doesn't know about me, and I care enough about her that I don't want her to share my pain and the darkness that never sees daylight inside me.

I want her, but she's a woman I can never have. She's too smart, too sweet, and way too good for a guy like me.

Unfortunately, pushing her away becomes much more difficult than I'd planned...

Review by Barbara

OMG was this ever a “FEELS” Book! Just awesome!!! These two fabulous authors have written a wonderful storyline that will have you laughing, crying, smiling, worried and everything in between. 

Lauren and Jack are brother and sister and have been best friends with Graham since childhood. We follow along as Graham, Jack and Lauren come to grips with their friendship, their personal lives as well as their inner turmoils with their futures/careers as these three move into next stage of their adult lives.

But what happens when everything you thought you knew about yourself, your best friend and your life is suddenly all in question? What happens when you lose trust and faith in those closest to you? These things and many others will all be tested as incidents cause doubts and trust issues. 

I found myself holding my breath, wondering what was going to happen next. This is an amazingly wonderful book that I HIGHLY recommend reading. Kudos to both authors for a job well done and I hope this turns into the amazing series I feel this has the potential to become after reading Well Played.

Insatiable Bachelor Available February 22nd 2018

A brand new series set in a whole new world.

Dalton: Women are a perk of my lifestyle. I work hard. I deserve to play harder. But I didn’t get on the Forbes List of Rising Entrepreneurs by getting lost in the baggage and disruption that comes with dating. I’ve seen dozens of men fail when they fall in love. Pathetic.

That's why I chose the Bachelor Tower. It was designed by a genius, my hero: the late, Garry F. Sinclair. He created an all-male haven for ambitious men who want to live like kings and play by their own rules. Casino nights, a fully equipped gym and lap pool, cigar and Scotch bar, and a media room with screens the size of the average movie theater. The list is endless. I easily network with men trying to launch their careers or those at the top who want to stay hungry. The best part: the tower attracts women, beautiful women who hang out in the lobby bar and vie for an invite upstairs. Easy, like fishing in a barrel.

Until Sinclair dies and Penny Fuller moves into the apartment next to me because the new owner doesn't share his vision.

Everyone agrees Penny can't stay. I don't want to get involved, but she doesn't understand the lengths my fellow building mates will go to to get her out. She's not only irresistibly sexy and painfully optimistic, she's also in real danger.

Siding with her would be career suicide.

Betraying her was never my intention.

What Kindle Reviewers write about her:

"Wow hot at every page. Heart stopping, fear raging, mind blowing wonderful."

"I'm a true fan of Ms. Cardello. I ran on to her first book a few years back and have been hooked ever since. I could go on and on about the story like of this book, but I'm not. All of her books are total page turners, unique, heart wrenching, and I love them all. There isn't two alike in the bunch and I feel like i know the characters personally. I personally read 97 authors books. And I buy every book they put out. This author is in my top 10. Great job and keep them coming."

"Love this series. Got me to start reading again. I look forward to the next book. Thank you for giving me the love of reading back."
