Promo: Balance by Lucia Franco




Blurb


Adrianna Rossi is no stranger to the rigorous demands required of her body. Years of pain and determination make her one of the best. Olympic glory is the ultimate goal, and she'll do anything to achieve it. Even if that means leaving home to attend World Cup Academy of Gymnastics, a training center that serves one purpose—producing champions. 

Perfection, precision, and dedication are required of his athletes. When two time Olympian Konstantin Kournakova is persuaded into training the young hopeful, he immediately regrets it. She doesn't come close to his high standards. As the relentless pursuit of her dream keeps her striving, a passion is ignited within him.

Kova's power and domination, coupled with Adrianna's fierce tenacity, reveal there is more for her body to learn. Every interaction can be misconstrued, but there’s no mistaking the darkening of his gaze, the lingering of his touch, or the illicit image of his bare skin pressed against hers. Integrity is on the line. One toe off the beam and their forbidden desires could ruin everything they’ve worked for, throwing it all off balance. 
WARNING: This novel contains explicit content.

Excerpt

Kova turned around to face me, his broad shoulders pulled back, one hand propped on his hip and the other clenched around his water bottle. "Do you think you are the first gymnast to show wear and tear on their hands from bars? You are not in Palm Beach anymore, malysh—" 

Kova visibly tensed, stopping short from his last word. Since I didn't speak a lick of Russian, I didn't have a clue as to what he said. But judging by the alarmed look on his face and the thick air between us, whatever he said couldn't have been good. 

Snapping his head to the side, he cracked his neck. "I am not going to go light on you. Get used to it. Nobody said it was going to be easy, it only gets harder from here on out. You need to learn to toughen up and take it. Remember what I said earlier? Prove it to me. Every time you step foot into that gym—make it count. I do not care if your hands hurt or your back is sore or you are running on two hours of sleep. Prove it. Champions are not made by complaining. They are made by the endless pursuit of their dream despite the obstacles they are faced with. Push through it and do it."

I took a minute to let the weight of his words sink in. While an outsider would think they were laced with malice, I knew they weren't. That was the furthest thing from the truth. I knew he was pushing me to be better. Not only to prove it to him, but myself as well. Without a doubt, Konstantin Kournakova was one hundred percent right.

Slowly nodding, I looked into his eyes and said, "You're completely right, but I never expected you to go light on me. That's not what I wanted. That's not why I came here. I want the challenge. I want to be better. It's why I pour every ounce of blood and sweat into a sport that gives me so little in return. The truth is, I've never been challenged by a coach the way I have by you, so I'm learning to adjust to it." I held up my hands and showed him the bloody blisters threatening to pop under my palms. "You won't hear a complaint come from me again."

Kova's shoulders loosened and he blew out a ragged breath. His gaze openly traveled the length of my body, taking in every inch. The way his eyes pierced mine, like he was pleased with my response, made my heart rush against my chest with satisfaction.

Felicity Heaton


A ruthless vampire warrior, Grave Van der Garde rules the mercenary Preux Chevaliers with an iron fist, determined to retain his hard-won position as one of the most powerful men in Hell and his reputation as the heartless King of Death. But beneath the cold façade beats the heart of a vampire torn between love and hate, ripped in two directions by a single ethereally beautiful female—his fated phantom mate.
Driven by her phantom instincts, Isla used a spell to make her solid in order to deceive the vampire who killed her sister’s demon mate and have revenge on him, condemning him with a single kiss to become a phantom too. But her plan took an unexpected turn when she fell in love with him, and with her new life, and the night she betrayed him shattered both of their hearts. Now, he lives to make her suffer through their connection, one that is fading with them as they begin to slip into the phantom world, and she must face the monster she created if she is to save herself and the vampire she still loves.
With a demon from Grave’s past determined to destroy him and everything he holds dear, and the clock ticking down to their inevitable doom, can he and Isla overcome their past and their pride to work together to claim the future they both desire deep in their hearts?

#TBT Review: Crave (Billonaire Bachelors Club #1) by Monica Murphy

Crave (Billonaire Bachelors Club #1) by Monica Murphy

Published: August 6th, 2013
Publisher: Avon Impulse


Billionaire Archer Bancroft always gets what he wants—and he’s wanted Ivy Emerson, his best friend’s sister, for far too long. Being forbidden and untouchable only makes her more tempting. When a million-dollar bet with his friends throws down a challenge—last bachelor standing takes all—Archer knows he can win. That is, until one enchanted evening with Ivy takes his heart for a ride.

Ivy knows Archer is nothing but bad news: Infuriating, arrogant… and completely intoxicating. But despite her best efforts, she can’t seem to keep away. When a stolen kiss leads to a night of heated passion, Ivy realizes she’s in trouble and in head over heels.

But in the light of day, everything seems clearer and Archer’s not so sure a one-night stand is all he wants. Concocting a plan to keep Ivy by his side, Archer might just be willing to lose this bet… and win the jackpot instead.


Welcome to the good life. Archer Bancroft is a rich hotelier who loves to live in luxury and a new woman every night. Ivy Emerson is the favorite child who works for her own even though her family is well positioned. 

They have known each other half their lives. Archer's best friend is Ivy's older brother and she knows him. His ways and his troubles. Archer has liked Ivy for a long time now but he knows her brother would never allowed it and more important that he can't give her what she deserves. 

This is short and cute romance. Because the two have known each other for so long you don't feel the love story is rushed. One night they cave in and let their fantasies rule them but next morning things aren't so easy. How do you continue? 

I like how Ivy wanted to make a name for herself and how she tried to mentalized herself about what she and Archer had: one night. She wasn't a whiney character despite being hurt.  Archer made you want to knock some sense into his head, giving it all one minute and screwing it up the next. The amount of lies he told each step did made for a somehow funny outcome, I enjoyed reading him trying to get out of his own disarter. 

Overall I liked this novella. The writing style catches you and make you cheer and cry with the characters. I did felt like the ending was a bit rushed. I think that the problem, while simple, got  solved too quickly. But it was what I wanted and expected.

Review: HETCH by River Savage

HETCH (Men of S.W.A.T. #1) by River Savage
Published: May 11th, 2016

*Copy provided by the author in exchange of an honest review*

Save 
verb \ˈsāv\ 

1 a: Keep safe or rescue (someone or something) from harm or danger.

Synonyms: rescue, come to someone's rescue, save someone's life, set free, liberate, deliver, extricate.

Saving lives is the end goal.
It's a responsibility I live with every day, the reason I wear the badge.
Built on a brotherhood that runs deeper than blood, this way of life has become my very existence...

Until Liberty.


I thought I was saving her.



I never expected her to be the one saving me.




Hot guy in uniform? Check
Broken Hero? Check
Kind Heroine? Check
Lots of Chemestry? Check

This book pulls you in right from the start. Meet Liberty, recently single and a social worker who moves to a new building next to a misterious neightbour who keeps bringing his dates home and keep everyone awake. And meet Liam Hetcherson, Hetch for most. SWAT team leader, afraid of commitments and noisy. 

The two meet by chance in a bar and soon discover they are neightbours! Lib doesn't take it too well but Lib's work puts her in a dangerous path and Hetch is determined to keep her safe. 

I loved how the two of them argued at first, how they liked to get on their nerves. The SWAT team was a great support to the story, each of them had a defined personallity that help move the plot a bit. I did feel like Hetch was a more complex and interesting character than Lib. His past, fears and hopes really made me like him and cheer for him, something that was a bit harder with the heroine. 

The author made a great job portraying their lives and works, and although the story was predictable I did enjoyed reading it.  The connection between Hetch and Lib grabs you as much as they feel the need to be with each other, and I will read the next books in the series. 

HETCH is a perfect book if you like alpha males and men in uniform. It has the kind of love you can't live without and the perfect broken hero you'd love to put back together again. Intense and Emotional, HETCH is not a book you want to put down.

Review: His Undercover Princess by Avery FLynn

His Undercover Princess (Tempt Me #1) by Avery Flynn

Publisher: Entangled: Indulgence
Published: May 2, 2016
*Copy provided by the publisher in exchange of an honest review*


Stylist Elle Olsen lives in fear of someone discovering her secret identity as Princess Eloise. But the men who killed her entire family in a bloody coup have done just that andnow they’re coming for her. All Elle wants is to disappear into anonymity again, but the panty-melting billionaire who kidnaps her isn’t about to let that happen.

On the society pages, smoking hot financier Dominick Rasmussen is one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, but there’s more to him than meets the eye. As a secret resistance fighter, his one goal is to get Princess Eloise on the throne and restore the monarchy. The biggest problem? His stubborn and sexy undercover princess has no interest in ever wearing a tiara again.

Their goals couldn’t be more opposed, but neither Dom nor Elle can deny the attraction bringing them closer together. As the stakes rise and danger increases, they are forced to choose between love and country…



This book is full of action, a steamy romance, a princess and a super hot bodyguard.

I liked Elle right from the start, I mean she has a dream job being a stylist and she has the attitude of someone you wish was your bff. Dominick comes off as your sexy playboy billonaire and I loved him for that but things between them changed so fast you can't fully believe this little fantasy.

Elle is a princess who scaped her kingdom and a certain death and who is not interested in getting back. She left it all behing and going back to a country that betrayed her is not on her to do list.
Dominick is a loyal guard. He has spend his entire life working to get Princess Eloise back on her throne. He created a whole persona for this and is almost there... if only Elle would see reason. 

I loved this book from page 1. Elle is such a likeable character and she surprised me in more than one ocassion. While the story progesses you see why she doesn't want the throne back, after her father got killed she was alone with no one to help her or support her. Elle is nothing but a strong woman, learning to survive alone after living in a castle and she has a big sense of duty as well. She knows her life isn't really hers but of her people even though that might cost her everything.
Dom also is so much more than meets eye. He has lost as much as Elle and he fought as much to get where he is, to make sure that everything he believes in wins. 

The chemestry between the two is amazing. They can't keep their hands off each other and at the same time is impossible to see eye to eye. But when their needs and their duties come they have to chose once and for all... 

This book kept me guessing all the time. Is full of action, spies and secrets. The ending had me at the edge of my seat.The romance comes fast but at a good pace for the story and both characters evolve with the plot. 

I can't wait to read the next books in the series!
