**NEW RELEASE WITH REVIEW** Unpredictable by Jenna Hartley

Release Date: July 1

Sleeping with the father of the bride—a former NFL player and one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors—was not part of the plan. 


It was only supposed to be one night. 

One night to forget. 

But he made me feel wanted. 
Reckless. 
Alive. 

I’d been down this road before, and it only ended in disaster.

Was I willing to risk my heart again?

3.5 Stars

This is the first book by Jenna Hartley that I've read.  I didn't realize it was part of a series though.  For the most part it did feel like a stand alone, but there were parts that I felt like I was missing something with Julianna.
It was mostly the back story with her and Ryan.  I mean, we do get the story when she finally tells Harrison, but it still felt like something was missing.
I really liked Harrison.  And I did like Julianna for the most part.  I lost some like for her when she took her "trip". 
This was a little predictable, but still enjoyable.
But her "trip" left me with some serious questions.  Why didn't she finally find out?

**COVER REVEAL** Wrangling The Cowboy by Kennedy Fox



Bull riding is all Gavin’s known for years, but when it’s time to retire, he can’t let go of the reckless lifestyle. He finds a job that brings him to a small-town Texas ranch and face-to-face with the woman who snuck out after their one-night stand.


She can pretend she’s over him, but he’s not letting her go that easily.
Maize Bishop spends her days cooking and baking for her family’s bed and breakfast. The last thing she has time for is a relationship, especially when there are no single men within a hundred-mile radius. When a mysterious newcomer flirts with her over drinks, she gives in to his mesmerizing green eyes and goes home with him.

Now that he works for her family’s ranch, she’ll avoid him at all costs.

There are only so many places to hide, and keeping her distance is easier said than done. After months of giving her space, Gavin’s tired of waiting for Maize to admit what he knows they both want—a second round between the sheets. It may only take eight seconds to win a championship, but he'll prove to her that he can go all night long.

She’s too young, he’s too arrogant, and together, they’re electric—the perfect recipe for disaster.

**BLOG TOUR WITH REVIEW** Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes the next standalone rockstar romance in her Seaside Pictures series…
Surrender is now live!
I had his posters on my wall when I was sixteen and when I accidentally got pregnant in high school—his was the face I dreamt of when I closed my eyes at night.
Now, over twenty years later, that dream's turned into a reality.
Not only is Drew Amhurst in my tiny town of Seaside, live and in the flesh…
But he's mentoring my rockstar son.
Drew says he's mine for a week.
And he made me three promises.
"No strings attached."
"No falling in love."
"It's only seven days."
He's confident that he can help me rediscover myself both in and out of the bedroom, and I'm confident that he's too arrogant for his own good.
And at the end of seven days, he swears he'll walk out of my life the way he came into it.
The only problem is, the more I get to know him, the more I want to surrender the last pieces of my heart and beg him to stay.
Pre-order today!
Excerpt:
He rested his chin on my head as his arms slid around the front of mine, and then he slowly turned me toward the shoreline. The sun had painted the sky in streaks of purples, pinks and oranges as it slid toward the ocean. I’d never paid much attention to sunsets, but the combination of brilliant color in the sky above and intoxicating male behind was showing me what I’d been missing. His body was hot against mine.
“Thought you might want a minute after digging so hard.”
With the sun setting, it should have been growing cooler, right? But here I was, my entire body on fire. “Are you mocking my hyperfocus?” I asked, unable to keep the wobble out of my voice.
Pressed against my back, his chest rumbled with a laugh. “No, actually, you just looked so damn cute and were concentrating so hard that I felt guilty for staring at your ass and decided, rather than staring, I was going to do something about it.”
I frowned. “And what did you do?”
“I’m doing it now,” he rasped, his lips next to my left ear. “I’m holding you and watching the sunset.”
Stiffening, I swallowed hard. “Oh.”
“Don’t get tense.” He continued his assault on my senses as his lips roamed down my neck. “I just want you to enjoy yourself. No pressure. I’m not going to suddenly strip you naked against the sand and propose, all right?”
Though my emotions still churned, I exhaled.
“Plus, I mean, I left the ring at home so—”
I drove my elbow back, connecting with his stomach. He let out a grunt and then laughed again.
His teasing made me smile, but it was his warmth that had me feeling safe, as if maybe, just maybe, I could let loose a little bit and simply enjoy the wind on my face, the way his body wrapped around mine protectively — something I’d never once in my life experienced, not even when I had been married. Maybe I could enjoy the laughter around me and not constantly wonder where it all had gone wrong in my life, how I’d been brought to this moment in time — almost forty, with kids nearly grown — wishing I could have at least once experienced the sort of romantic love people wrote songs about, fought for, maybe even died for.
The sun finally disappeared below the horizon, blanketing us in dusk, and the temperature immediately dropped a few degrees.
I didn’t want to move, but I knew we needed to build a fire, so I reluctantly started pulling away only to have Drew keep me locked in place. “I’m sorry. I wasn’t finished watching.”
Huh? Confusion clouded my mind, and I shifted to get a look at him, but he held me in place. “But… the sun set already…”
“You think I was watching the sun the whole time? How adorably wrong.” His nose trailed down my neck up and down, and then his teeth nipped my ear, causing shivers to erupt all over my skin. “I was watching you watch it, and I’ve never seen anything so awe-inspiring as a gorgeous woman watching the sunset for what seems like the first time.”

Tonya's Review
5 Stars

This is another amazing Seaside book!  I absolutely love all these guys. 
This is Drew and Braden's mom, Bronte's story.
Drew has a lot of demons.  He's gone through a lot and has put himself through hell.  And Rehab a few times.  He's clean now.  But he's dealing with all the pain that he caused while he was using.  And not just pain for himself, but the pain he caused his friends.
Bronte has really only been a single mom.  She's lost herself.  She's been a mom since she was sixteen, and now her kids are all basically grown and she's coming up on her 40th birthday.  
She needs to find herself again.  Get her groove back.
What better way to get your groove back than to have the rockstar of your teenage dreams help you!
I loved Drew's interactions with her kids, especially "not-my-dad".
And that epilogue!

**NEW RELEASE WITH REVIEW** Somethin' About That Boy by Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: June 23

Banner Spurlock knew the moment

 that he walked into Kilgore High

 School and saw Perry Street that

 life was about to get interesting.


Forced to move due to a problem at

 home, a problem in the form of his

 ex-best friend hating him for 

something that Banner’s father did,

 Banner doesn’t think very much 

could improve in his life.



He left his status as king of Benton

High School behind and moved to a

new school where not only would

he have to try out for a new football team and prove himself,

 but he’d also have to find a place for himself in the hierarchy.


Only, the moment that he arrives, he knows that finding a

 place for himself won’t be too hard. Especially when his

reputation follows him all the way to Kilgore, Texas.

***
Perry Street hates school. She hates her peers—most of them

 anyway—and she hates her classes. All she wants to do is

finish her senior year, graduate, and find a place that will give

 her a full scholarship so that she doesn’t have to be stuck

here forever.


That’s her goal, anyway.

Then she walks into first period, on her first day of her senior

 year, and sits down. Seconds later, he walks in and changes

every single plan she’s ever made.

It isn’t long before Perry starts to fall for the bad boy who

doesn’t care who he does and doesn’t impress. The boy

makes

her heart flutter. The boy makes her want things that she’s

never wanted before. Not ever.

The boy brings trouble with him that nearly kills her.

Lani Has done it again!  Now this book is a stand alone and not part of a series.  But, we've met Banner before.  He's Trance and Viddy's son.
Now Banner is a senior in High School, so the steamy scenes won't be as steamy.  There is still some steam though.
I love Perry, Banner, and everyone else.  Well, not everyone.  I couldn't stand the mean girls or Vance.
I was excited Slone will get a book. 
But is it bad I'm hoping that Blue, Tempy, and the football boys all get a book as well?  Lani just makes me greedy for more and more and more.

Tonya's Review
4 Stars

This is the seventh book in the Bailey's series.  This is a stand alone, but I think it is better read in order so that you can see the whole family dynamic better.  Plus the previous books do help set up this one.
This is Juno's book, and yup, you guessed it...Colton.
Now if you've read the others, you know Colton had Juno match him up.  And it worked, he's now engaged and it's not to Juno.
Don't worry, there's no cheating and there is a lot more to the story.  I don't want to give anything away though.
I'm surprised that none of Juno's family picked up on any of her fears.  They weren't blind to her feelings for Colton, like she was.  But they were blind to all of her fears.
Next up is Kingston, then Sedona.  After the last chapter, I can't wait for Sedona's book.
The biggest lesson in this book is that if Grandma Dori has a key, change your locks!
