BLOG TOUR* Losing Her by Cori Williams

TITLE: Losing Her
SERIES: Broken Road (Book 1)
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
AUTHOR: Cori Williams
PUBLISHER: Booktrope Publishing
Release Date: November 7th, 2015

Love. I’d hated love for most of my life. I saw how it destroyed the one person I thought I could count on as it sucked him under, leaving him not to care about anything else in the world—including me. But when I didn’t close myself off, I let love consume me. Love and hate, two words that don’t often go together but that’s what I felt for him. Beneath the prince lurked a monster.

Lawson Reynolds fell in love with Campbell Wynn the minute he laid eyes on her—even though he was clueless to the fact. Maybe if he had realized it sooner, he wouldn’t have lost her. Campbell Wynn had no interest in becoming another one of Lawson Reynold’s groupies. She thought she found her own happily ever after when she didn’t think they even existed. But the perfectly painted picture soon turned ugly behind closed doors. Will Lawson’s unconditional love be able to save her from the downward cycle that she refuses to break? Or will she reach the point of no return?
****MY REVIEW**** 

The blurb was the first thing that sucked me in. The second thing was I had never read a book from Cori and was happy to read this story.
The prologue had me in a 'WTH', 'OMG', give me more type of mood. After the first 3 chapters I am not sure the book would continue on the same way it began.

The characters Lawson Reynolds and Campbell Wynn had a very interesting relationship. Throw in Conner and all the additional obstacles between the trio and you get a whole lot of drama. There were so many things that came in the way of their friendship/relationship but I always appreciated how Lawson was always sweet, loving and caring.

I like Lawson more than Campbell because I felt like I saw a side of him that I really like. Campbell was just well...Campbell. I wanted her to wake up and man up to her feelings but instead she always chose her head and not her heart.

What didn't work for me in this story.

I didn't like how the story jumped. Most of the time throughout the book I was left feeling confused. I thought I missed a few chapters and would often have to go back a few pages. I wished that each chapter had the name of the person whose point of view it was. Again, I found myself confused as the story would be told from either Lawson's or Campbell's point of view and it would take me a while to determine which person I was reading.

The Prologue was so intriguing that I thought the entire story was going to lead up to what the hell happened in the beginning. You kind of get what happened all the way at the end of the book but the story leading up to it wasn't really leading in that direction.

Besides these points, the story was OK. I didn't love it but I liked it.I need more to fall in love and find that emotionally connection.
Overall, Losing Her was an OK story with interesting events and characters.

BLOG TOUR+GIVEAWAY~ Perfectly Imperfect by Harper Sloan

Meet Willow and Kane in the newest stand alone by Harper Sloan!
NOW AVAILABLE on the following retailers:
perfecty imperfect.jpg
Mirror, mirror ... who's the fairest of them all?
I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn't grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all 'mean girls.'
And those mean girls were right - it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world - and I knew the answer would never be me.
The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests.
The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward.
Well, that's definitely not Willow Tate.
No. That will never be me.
Because I'm completely imperfect.
And ... I hate myself.
I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.

“Are you nervous right now?”
I nod.
“Tell me why.”  His demand, steady and calm, gives me the courage I need to tell him.  To open a vein and bleed my insecurities.
“I’m not perfect,” I whisper.
“And neither am I, Willow.  I don’t want perfect.  What so many see as perfect, to me, is fake.  Perfect isn’t achievable naturally.  No one, and I mean no one, is perfect.”
I’m shaking my head before he’s even done speaking, but one long finger comes up and presses against my lips before I can speak.
“No, let me finish.  There isn’t beauty in perfection.  It’s as fake as the image the word projects.  Beauty is found in imperfection, Willow, because to admit you’re not perfect means you’re admitting you’re not whole and absolute.  When I think of myself, I see someone willing to admit he’s as far from complete as it gets because, in order to get to that perfection, I need to find the other part of me who will make my life better.  To take all the faults I have and fill them, and only then will I be there.  You see, the way I see it, the only way to become perfect is to find that perfectly imperfect person who brings it out of you.”
When he stops, I swear I might have stopped breathing.  How am I supposed to respond to that?
“Do you trust me?” he asks, his voice strong and sure.
“Yes, Kane.  Nerves or not, I do.”
“Then let me show you what I see when I look at you.”
He brings his hands up, framing my face once again in a way I’m quickly becoming addicted to the feeling of.  His warm eyes implore, begging me without words to let him continue.  I do not intend to stop him, regardless of the butterflies currently taking over my system.  I’m all in.

****MY REVIEW****

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Even before I started Perfectly Imperfect, the blurb and the cover blew me away. If I had to rate the cover and blurb, It would be 5 stars hands down. The overall story unfortunately I will rate it 3 Stars.  It breaks my heart that I fell out of love with the characters and the overall story line. I ended the story feeling that it was an OK read but  I still had that 'Meh' feeling.

Harper did a job with introducing an issue that many don't write about. I cannot recall a book that touch on body issues and self worth.  Willow Tate was given a bad hand in life and boy did I feel it for her in the beginning of the story.

For the first 37% I was completely in love. As a full figured woman I found myself relating to Willow in regards to the body issues she faced. I think everyone at some point in their lives has felt what Willow had been through. I have experienced first hand being in a relationship where I  knew it wasn't doing me any good but for whatever reason it was the hardest thing to get over.Willow struggled for a while even though she knew her ex was no good and treated her like garbage.  I enjoyed the messages the author conveyed with Perfectly Imperfect and shed a few tears in the beginning of the story. 

OK without rambling further, after 37% I am not sure what happened. My connection to Willow fell off a huge cliff. The story did not draw my attention like it did in the beginning of the book. I would even say that I got bored at times. Kane was a little to soft for my liking and the story was just a little to predictable. I did keep going and came to the conclusion that it was an OK story. I didn't finish the book feeling much and I think that is what disappointed me the most.

Overall, I wished the story ended the way it started. There was so much to love in the beginning , the story was stronger and I wish it would have continued on this path. This was my first book by Harper. I think I will give the author another try.

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ~ Forbid Me (The Good Ol' Boys Series) by M. Robinson


It was only a matter of time until the truth came out.
I never thought it would come to this…
I tried, God knows I tried to stay away from her but eventually I crossed that line and broke that trust. I could no longer go back and I sure as fuck didn’t regret a single moment of it. I knew there would be hell to pay, I knew the wrath I’d be facing but I would willingly take the burns and scars just to have the love of my best friend's sister.
If there is one person I’d willingly go to hell and back for it was…

“Is that right?” I replied arrogantly, centimeters from her lips. “I don’t know you? Really? What part don’t I know? Maybe I don’t know the way you move your hair to cover the side of your face when you’re nervous. Or maybe I don’t know how you bite your bottom lip when you’re deep into your strings. Or do you mean that I don’t know the way you freak out if it’s too dark in a room and you won’t walk in? Or maybe I don’t know that you bite your fingernails when you think no one is looking. Oh wait, here’s a good one. I don't know that you're trembling in your skin right now. I don’t know that your heart is beating a million miles a minute, your hands are clammy, and you can’t swallow. How there are hundreds of thoughts going through your mind, but the top one being how bad you want me to kiss you. How bad you want me to fuck you. How bad you want me to claim every fucking inch of your perfect body,” I paused to let my words sink in, and her flushed complexion gave away that everything I was saying was true.
“You’re right. I don’t know you. I don’t see your gorgeous smile in my sleep. I don’t hear that ridiculous giggle you have when I’m away from you. I don’t see those dark brown eyes every time I close mine.” I leaned in a little closer so she could feel my breath against her lips. “I don’t stroke my cock to the memory of your sweet pussy pulsating down my shaft and the taste of your come dripping down my chin.”

“We’re here, miss.” The driver stopped the car and got out, then opened her door and helped her from the car. They stood in front of a tall, elegant looking building. It didn’t look like a hotel. More like a luxury apartment building. The driver rolled her overnight bag to the front door and the doorman opened the door for her. The driver led her across the impressive lobby, with marble floors, tall pillars, and huge floral arrangements, to an elevator. “This is a private elevator.” He slid a card into a slot and the door opened. “It will take you to the penthouse.” Then he handed her the card and walked away. The door closed and her stomach fluttered as the elevator started moving upward. When the door opened, she stepped into a huge apartment with windows overlooking the city. She stepped onto the gleaming, dark hardwood floor of the foyer as she stepped from the elevator and glanced around, expecting her benefactor to be waiting for her. But there was no one in sight. She glanced around at the elegantly furnished penthouse, with light walls and leather couches and chairs. The wood furniture had clean lines and large pieces of abstract art hung on the walls. The whole look was balanced by the softness of the plush carpets and cushions. She walked across the floor and stared out at the city below. The sun was setting and the windows of the other buildings were bathed in orange light. “Like the view?” a male voice asked behind her. A prickle started along the back of her neck, then down her spine. It wasn’t the voice of a stranger. It was him. She turned slowly, her heart pounding in her chest. “Mason?” Astounded, she stared at the man she hadn’t seen in eight years. “Hello, Dana.” The shock at seeing him had sent her totally off balance, but now she remembered the situation. “Oh my God, you’re the one? But… you can’t…” she sputtered. He raised his eyebrow in that way she remembered. “Can’t what? Be the one who takes your virginity?” Her eyes widened. “That’s right. We just… I mean…” She stared at him, the man who had left when she was eighteen. The man who’d made her feel special and cared for in a time when she had felt like nothing. A man who haunted her hottest and most forbidden dreams. She sucked in a breath of air and tried again. “You’re my stepbrother, for God’s sake.”
