Title: VAN
Series: Vested Interest Series
Author: Melanie Moreland
Genre: Contemporary Romance ~ Rom/Com
Release Date: March 25, 2019

 

 

Vince Morrison, known to most people as Van.
 
Good with his hands, be it crafting a piece of wood, playing his guitar, or pleasing a lover—he excels at them all.
 
Friendly, flirty, and talented, he’s cool under pressure, and hot everywhere else.
 
But he keeps his heart closed, even as his interest and emotions are tested.
 
Olivia Rourke works alongside him at BAM.
 
Talented, private, and intriguing, she touches something inside him he can’t deny.
 
He wants to know her. In every possible way.
 
He wants her to know him.
 
Her past tells her to stay clear. Van is everything that she wants, and exactly what she cannot have. She has someone else to think of who is more important.
 
Can either of them risk their hearts?

 

 

 
Van sat on the floor, his legs crossed, a few animals on his lap. A blue boa was draped around his neck, and a tiara sat askew on his head, the plastic gems glittering in the light. He held out his cup, his pinkie extended, no doubt having been schooled in proper tea party etiquette by Sammy, murmuring his thanks for more “tea.”
 
Sammy filled his cup with water and held out the plate of Oreos. I frowned. I never bought Oreos.
 
“More cookies, Prince Van? I made them myself.”
 
Prince Van?
 
He lifted his chin royally and accepted a cookie. “They are delicious. You must give me the recipe. I’ll have my cook at the castle make them.”
 
Never had I wished for a camera more than I did at that moment. Unable to contain myself, I giggled. They both turned to the door, excited to see me home. Sammy clapped her hands, demanding I join them. 
 
I expected embarrassment from Van, but he simply tossed his boa around his neck and indicated the floor beside him with a wide grin. 
 
“Liv, you’re home. Join us for tea? Sammy has made the most divine cookies.”
 
How could I resist?

blog_review

It was a delight to return to the world of BAM that we know and love. Van is a construction worker for the company who not only manages a number of projects but likes to step in and help as well. He has loved creating wood projects with his hands since he was a child and that has only grown stronger as he gets older.

Liv is a single mother to her four year old daughter Sammy and is the head of the design team for BAM. They have always worked well together and although they are attracted to each other they have never crossed the line from co-workers to friends.

As the feelings between them grow they realize that they are no longer to just be associates and that they want more. They know they should move slowly as they not only have their own pasts to deal with but more important they need to protect Sammy from what may or may not happen between them.

This was a sweet and sexy story about a man with a huge heart who had become a bit of loner until Liv and Sammy entered his life. Liv has her own painful past but once she gets to know the real Van, he steals her heart and Sammy is a scene stealer. Their journey isn’t without its ups and downs but there is no doubting that they were meant to be.

Excerpt

I came home from work and planned on taking a shower and having a nice relaxing dinner with Heather. I didn’t account for getting out of the shower and having my new neighbor knocking on my door.

I step out of the shower and wrap a towel around my waist. I assume it was Heather when I went to open the door, but I am met with a tiny young girl.

“Hey, we haven’t met, but I’m Rachael. Your new neighbor,” she chirps at me like a little bird. She seems way too excited this late at night.

“Hey.” I reach down and grip the top of my towel. All I need is for my towel to fall and this chick to get an eye full of my package. “Can I help you with something?”

“Oh, yea! I’m sorry. We just moved in and don’t have everything we need. I hoped you had a plunger or something I could use to unclog the toilet.” She peaks around me trying to check out my apartment.

“I have a plunger. Are you going to need assistance or is your boyfriend around to help?” I ask before opening my door wider for her to enter. She doesn’t waste any time making her way into my apartment, following me toward the bathroom.

“Oh, yea, no boyfriend, just me and my dad.” By how fast she is speaking, she’s obviously nervous. She is trying to look anywhere but at me. “We moved here from the Midwest. My dad got a great price on a new bike shop and couldn’t pass it up.”

“Yea, I helped your dad move in a couple of days ago. He never mentioned anything about a daughter.”

“Sometimes he forgets I’m a girl since I’m nothing but a grease monkey like him since I started working there.” She gives me a shy smile as she tucks a piece of hair behind her ear. “I didn’t get here until yesterday. Just finished my final semester at a community college.” I give her a nod before heading to the bathroom for the plunger.

As I pass my room I grab my phone and shoot Heather a quick text. All I need is for her to come in and see me half naked with another female in my apartment. After hitting send, I walk into the bathroom and grab the plunger out of the closet and head back to Rachael. I can’t help but wonder why she told me her entire life story in a matter of minutes, and we only met recently. I’m sure someone has taught her not to be so trusting, but she said she was from the Midwest. I remember what it was like when I first came to the city. After being used to never having to lock my front door or car and knowing everyone in town, it was a huge change.

Looking at her baby face and bright eyes make me think of a younger version of my sister, Melanie. She obviously needs a friend in the big bad city. Maybe I can introduce her to Heather and Addison.

“Alright! Thanks for this.” She reaches over and wraps her tiny arms around my waist giving me a bear hug. Damn, I had no idea someone so small could be so strong!

The door slams open, hitting the wall in the process. “What the fuck is going on here?!?” Rachael and I turn to find a very angry Heather coming our way. It’s as if I see my life flash before my eyes and I brace myself for the slap that is coming. I learned from having a sister that there is no explaining this situation to Heather, she’s going to make whatever conclusion she wants.

“Hi! I’m Rachael, the new neighbor.” Rachael jumps between Heather and me, saving my ass.

“Hi, I’m Heather. Care to explain why you have your hands around Wyatt here?” she says with a raised eyebrow and her arms crossed over her chest. She leans around Rachael and addresses me, “And why the hell are you standing here half naked?”

Opening my mouth to respond once again Rachael swoops in to save the day. “Oh, I kind of bombarded him when he was getting out of the shower. I need a plunger to help unclog the toilet and Wyatt…” She looks back at me to confirm that’s my name. I give her a slight nod of my head, hoping that she will continue with the explanation. “Got the plunger I needed, and I’ll leave you to enjoy whatever it is you were going to be doing.”

Rachael’s voice raises slightly as she turns and gives me a wave before heading out the door, closing it behind her. I watch the door close before turning to Heather. I take in a deep breath and get ready to face my fate.

Continue Holly and Ben’s story in Stumbling Into Forever
Life would be boring without some chaos thrown in, right? Surprisingly enough, that was Holly and Lord Waffles’ specialty.
What kind of trouble will they get into next?

 
 

Red Hatter Book Blog ➜ “Stumbling Into Forever will put you on cloud nine for days!”


BookBoysNBabes ➜ “This story will have you laughing so hard your belly might hurt, your heart will be full of love and you May have a little touch of sadness, but I promise these two will take that sadness away in a split second with more stumbles of their crazy but beautiful fun filled lives ❤️❤️❤️”

Much like any author out there, sleeping does not come easy to Molly. As it turns out, she has horrible insomnia . When she was younger, to help herself fall asleep she would recite stories. Each night she’d pick up where the story left off previously until the tale was complete. One morning, after she finished a particularly fun adventure, she decided she wanted to start sharing them with others. A few months later, here she is, sharing her lack of sleep with all of you. Who says the stories in our heads can’t be fun for others?
Also, she loves Fun Facts. New ones are at the end of each of her book. If you look close enough, some are hidden on her website too.
blog_review

The love story of Molly and Ben that began in Stumbling Into Him continues. They are now happily married, and their family includes the two dogs they had before they got together as well as a cat that they chose together. Ben is still the sexy veterinarian that we know and love and Molly is still the same clumsy and quirky woman that will have you laughing out loud.

Life rarely goes according to plan and their life together is no different. Falling in love is the easy part but it is how you handle all the obstacles that life throws at you that makes your relationship stronger.

The combination of humor and heart that this story conveys will have you laughing out loud and fill you with emotion as well. Not only are the characters great but the combination of their menagerie and the secondary characters make this an experience you won’t soon forget.

After years of struggling as a starving actor, Lisa Perry’s dreams are finally coming true. Splitting her time between Los Angeles and Cliffside Bay, the young beauty has a successful television miniseries, her first movie role, and quality time with her best friends Maggie and Pepper. Everything is coming up roses until a single tragic moment changes Lisa forever.

Haunted by unshakable memories and near-crippling anxiety, Lisa must face a publicity tour full of crowds and interviews in order to move her budding career forward. And with the help of Rafael Soto, the head of security for Brody and Kara Mullen, she finally begins to relax. Though the pair are as different as night and day, something about her temporary bodyguard soothes the young actress, and soon their relationship turns from professional to passionate.

But what neither anticipates is that despite the obvious threats to a beautiful ingenue, it’s actually her protector who stands in harm’s way. Will Lisa and Rafael be able to face the danger awaiting him together, or are they destined to accept yet another tragedy they can’t stop?

🌼Review🌼

Lisa has worked hard to pursue her dreams of becoming an actress and it is finally paying off and she is experiencing the success she always wanted. After a traumatic incident she finds herself unable to handle crowds and complete her obligations on her upcoming publicity career. She heads to Cliffside Bay to spend some time with her best friends Maggie and Pepper.

Rafael is Brody and Kara’s bodyguard who we met in the first book of the series Traded. His background in military and policework has prepared him well for the job but he is also damaged by his past. When Kara asks him to protect Lisa on her upcoming tour, he is happy to spend time with the woman he can’t stop thinking about but also believes she deserves better than him.

Their journey is not without its complications as they must deal with their pasts as well as the danger in the present but it only made their being together that much better. The secondary characters are great and I look forward to more stories about the Wolves.

 

Misadventures in a Threesome by Elizabeth Hayley

Release Day: 19th March

Genre: Contemporary Romance

#MisadventuresinaThreesome #WaterhousePress #ElizabethHayley

***MISADVENTURES ARE STANDALONE ROMANCES THAT CAN BE READ IN ANY ORDER***

Synopsis

 

Jasmine Pritchett needs a job. A pathway to financial independence. When Transform, the local gym, initiates an expansion to offer fitness classes, she sees her opportunity. Armed with several instructor certifications and even more persistence, she finds herself interviewing for the job in front of two of the sexiest men she’s ever laid eyes on.

Maddox Gibson craves control. He’s been trying to regain his zest for life since being discharged from the army, and with the help of his best friend, Wilder Vaughn, he’s worked his way from rock bottom to find happiness as a successful gym co-owner. Wilder lives life like his name implies—wildly—and without Maddox’s rigid temperament to keep him grounded, his lighthearted impulsiveness could very well get him into trouble.

When these two beefy best buds invite Jasmine into their friendship, sparks fly quickly, and Jasmine tries to convince them she can be so much more. To both of them. Can Jaz, Mad, and Wild figure out how to navigate a polyamorous relationship without destroying their friendship…and their hearts?

****

Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

Meet The Author
Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. They learned a ton about each other through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly. They live with their husbands and kids in a Philadelphia suburb. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.

Review

Mad and Wild are best friends and they are partners in their gym Transform. They couldn’t be more different as Mad’s military background has made him reserved and methodical while Wild is outgoing and tends to act first and consider the consequences second. They are looking to starts some new classes at the gym but Jaz was a surprise they weren’t expecting.

Jaz has the credentials to teach yoga and now she just needs a job. When she saw the ad for an instructor it seemed like the answer to her problems and she fits right in both at the gym and their friendship.

Both Mad and Wild want Jaz and they both start dating her separately but the more time she spends with them the more she realizes that she wants them both but convincing them may be more difficult than she imagined.

The characters are great as Mad and Wild are so different and match up to Jaz’s feisty and sassy personality. The chemistry between them is intense, the banter humorous and the connection between them heartfelt.

Synopsis:
 
When a ruthless rogue and reckless vixen collide, a hell of a lot more than hearts may break.
 
Nolan
 
I like women the way I like money – as much as I want, anytime, anywhere.  I work hard and play harder, running the sleezy and corrupt business that comes in and out of the MGM National Harbor Casino, in the heart of Washington, DC.  There are only a few men I trust, one of them being Dane Neri—boss of the corrupt empire in Atlantic City. 
 
After his sister gets into some trouble, Dane entrusts me to watch over her.   Gina is stunningly beautiful and drives all my senses into a deranged frenzy.  I’m going to keep her all to myself.  And have her anytime, anywhere, and as much as I want.
 
I even marry the feisty little brat to keep up this fake-ass charade, until she’s almost taken from me. Now my feelings are anything but fake, and I’ll set Washington, DC on fire to keep her safe, by my side, and in my bed—no matter who I have to hurt to make it happen.
 
Gina
 
My brother, Dane, is a powerful man, and he tries to shield me from his playground of dirty business in Atlantic City. But I also deal dirty, to my brother’s disapproval, and now my life is on the line. Dane takes me out of one city and drops me into another, just as corrupt and treacherous.
 
I land right on the lap of Nolan Reynolds, the arrogant, egotistical rogue who runs the MGM.  All I want to do is give him a taste of his own medicine—play him as I do other men.  But I’m forced into a marriage with Nolan, I’m snared in a trap and there’s no way out, because my heart and soul will fall deep when I look into his cobalt blue eyes.
 
I’ve always looked out for me first, but living means a lot now, because in the blackest moments, all I can think about is the hell that would come if I had to live without Nolan.

About The Edge of Forever

Weston Kincaid was my first…everything.
My brother’s best friend should have come with a warning label.
The man was a cautionary tale and we were the ill-fated cliché.
The star quarterback to my loner art geek.
But I didn’t listen. Not to the warnings. Not to my instincts.
I fell, and I fell hard.

Then he left and I was forced to pick up the pieces of my broken heart.

A decade and a lifetime later, he’s back.
Only instead of being the star jock, he’s now a surgeon.
A sexy, irresistible surgeon who happens to save my friend’s life. As if all that isn’t bad enough, he has it in his determined, arrogant head that we should pick up where we left off.
But this time, it’ll take more than devouring looks and the rush of his touch to temp me back into his bed.
And my heart? Not an option.
He’s about to figure out, I’m not the same girl he left behind.

Review

As a teenager Aria loved her Weston but with two strikes against them, the fact that he was the star quarterback and she was the socially awkward nerd and her brother was his best friend it was destined to end in heartbreak.

Ten years later Weston is back in town and now he is surgeon that saved her friend’s life. Weston wants a second chance, but Aria knows better than to get involved with him, doesn’t she?

I really liked how things were different this time around. Weston is determined to win her heart while Aria is going to make him work for it. There is no shortage of drama or angst, but it is finally their time.
