Fashion Jungle by Kathy Ireland and Rachel Van Dyken
Release Date: January 28, 2020
Cover of FashionJungle_eBook_HighRes.jpg
Fashion Jungle, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Iconic Supermodel, now Global Business Mogul, Kathy Ireland and #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken.
Four women… Four very different paths. One incredibly cutthroat world.
Welcome to the Jungle.
As America’s sweetheart, Brittany is perceived as the "good girl." The sort to bring her Bible to a photoshoot... only to garner the attention of a most unlikely suitor. Until one mistake irrevocably changes both of their lives forever. Fortunately, both now and then, Brittany has wonderful support systems, including her tribe.
The leader of the tribe and a model who’s fought every battle and obstacle in the industry, Zoe, knows her worth. Until a sex tape scandal rocks her world. She sees no choice but to put her trust in the one man she shouldn’t, to make it all go away and help her succeed. Unfortunately, not only is he mired in New York’s underbelly, he wants repayment... with interest. Namely, her hand in marriage.
Despite her seemingly perfect life, Everlee has problems of her own. Not only has her world-renowned photographer husband been cheating, but it’s actually much worse than that. The things surrounding what he’s done are so dark and dangerous, Everlee’s life may actually be in jeopardy.
And then there's Danica, cold, dead in the ground Danica. Some secrets stay hidden while others are just waiting to be discovered- hers has the power to alter the industry forever.
In the world of the Fashion Jungle, it’s easily eat or be eaten… but, if you make it out alive, you just might have a story to tell - though it will likely be one of secrets, lies, deceit, and loss.
Strap on your stilettos, it's about to get wild.
Based on true stories.

Tonya's Review
5 Stars

"It's the jungle, things get wild."

I honestly am at a loss for words for this review.  I don't even know where to really start.
This is a MUST read!
When the book first started, I was confused.  It was a good confusion though.
The prologue has you wondering who was with Danica.  Was it her friends?  Was it other models that were jealous?  Or was it someone else?
It sets the book up perfectly.  But, I wouldn't expect anything less from Rachel Van Dyken.
I love how we get chapters from each of the main characters.  Dane, Zoe, Brittany, and Everlee.  They each have their secrets and the secrets all do come out.
Dane is the keeper of all secrets.  He knows all about everyone.  He also is the protector of the girls.  He does run the underground.  He's on a mission to get the truth behind his sister's death.
But, is he evil?  Is it evil if you do bad things to get the bad guys caught?
Dane is completely in the gray area between good and bad, hero or villain.
I love the mystery and suspense.  I loved not being able to figure it all out before it was fully revealed.
Reading this book was like putting a puzzle together and you don't know exactly what the picture is until those final pieces come together.
Now I'm curious about what parts are true and based on true events...
I received an advanced copy via Netgalley.

Excerpt:
“I think I may come here every night.” “Be my guest,” Dane said, looking away as if he were bored; when in reality, his heart was racing. Frederick would crack. His shirt was open now, his eyes closed. The habit would continue as it always did. Wouldn’t it? He would self-destruct. All men eventually did when it came to Dane. The ones who didn’t, well… they weren’t alive to say otherwise, now, were they? “Have fun.” Dane stood, patted Frederick on the back, and shared a knowing look with the woman currently straddling the man’s lap. “Make it worth his while but remember our rules.” Dane shoved the guilt aside as he walked off. The guilt of what this would do to Everlee. Then again, Everlee didn’t know what he did. She didn’t know the secrets Frederick kept. That he wasn’t who she thought he was. Then again, nobody really did. Only Dane. Because he’d collected everything he could on Frederick for a year and was less than impressed by the sort of man he was. “Interesting club,” Ronan said once Dane reached the bar. He was flanked by two bodyguards. “They aren’t necessary,” Dane said in an unemotional voice, pointing to the security. “No weapons allowed, no fighting, only pleasure.” “And yet, here you are, talking to me.” Ronan leveled him with a glare. “What do you want, Dane?” “Is that how you speak to an old friend?” Ronan let out a snort. “We’ve never been friends. We’ve only tolerated each other because of the girls.” The girls. It was how they all referred to Brittany, Everlee, Zoe and Danica. Pain sliced through Dane’s heart, he couldn’t even say her name in his head without feeling it everywhere, all the way down to the marrow. Shake it off. They were women now. Women with secrets. Insecurities. Girls who’d grown up too fast. Females who were still fighting their way through the jungle of New York, barefoot and bleeding with fake smiles and deadly secrets. “I need you to keep him in jail,” Dane said under his breath. “They say he’s getting out on good behavior.” Ronan muttered a curse. “Let me guess, you want me to go have a golf game with the DA?” “If you think that would help.” Dane tilted his head and narrowed his eyes on the politician, the man he used to trust as much as everyone else before Dane’s world came crumbling down around him by way of his sister’s death. “Then, yes.” “Fine. This makes us even.” Ronan tried to walk off, but Dane grabbed him by the elbow and held him there, whispering in a low voice, “I will never be done with you… tell the former first lady hello. I loved what she was wearing while shopping on Fifth Avenue yesterday, the white made her look so innocent.” Ronan let out a filthy curse and walked off. And Dane? Dane stared out across the club as a feeling of calmness washed over him. Chess pieces had been moved. Now. Now, he would wait.

**COVER REVEAL** A Royal Mistake by Piper Rayne








He’s not your average Joe from the corner bar.
He’s the heir to the crown.

I should know, I’ve followed him for years. 
Not in a stalkerish way. Magazines and online gossip blogs are fair game when you’re royalty.
But I do know every detail about him, down to the brand of boxer briefs he wears. 

All my studying  of the man who plays a starring role in my dreams pays off when I win a dinner with him. As if that wasn’t enough, he barters a deal with me that has him moving into my spare guest room. 

I forgot that fairytales don’t exist though because just as I’m about to get everything I want, including the prince, I find out there’s someone in Prince Adrian Marx’s life I don’t know—his fiancĂ©e.

**REVIEW TOUR** Inappropriate by Vi Keeland


INAPPROPRIATE IS LIVE!
A Standalone Contemporary Romance
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland




SYNOPSIS
Terminated for inappropriate behavior.
I couldn’t believe the letter in my hands.
Nine years.  Nine damn years I’d worked my butt off for one of the largest companies in America, and I was fired with a form letter when I returned home from a week in Aruba. 
All because of a video taken when I was on vacation with my friends—a private video made on my private time. Or so I thought…
Pissed off, I cracked open a bottle of wine and wrote my own letter to the gazillionaire CEO telling him what I thought of his company and its practices.
I didn’t think he’d actually respond.
I certainly never thought I’d suddenly become pen pals with the rich jerk.
Eventually, he realized I’d been wronged and made sure I got my job back.
Only…it wasn’t the only thing Grant Lexington wanted to do for me. 
But there was no way I was getting involved with my boss’s boss’s boss. Even if he was ridiculously gorgeous, confident, and charming.
It would be completely wrong, inappropriate even.
Sort of like the video that got me into trouble to begin with.
Two wrongs don’t make a right.
But sometimes it’s twice as fun.

Tonya's Review
5 Stars

This is yet another fantastic stand alone from Vi Keeland.
I laughed when this book started because that drunk email from Ireland was great.  Who hasn't wanted to send a boss that type of email before?  I know I have wanted to, never have though.  I think I need some balls like Ireland.
But, sending that email, did get her her job back.
Once we got all of Grant's past with Lily, and what happened to Leilani, my heart was shattered.  I mean, I knew where that was heading, and my heart was broken during the build up, but when the full story came out...shattered.
I love Ireland and Grant.  Their story is great.  I did tear up some.  Just a warning.

Blurb:
"Will you do me the greatest honor of all time and be my bridegroom?” she asks, hope in her eyes . . . How did I get here? My assistant, bent on one knee, holding my hand, her expectant face waiting for an answer. Just . . . how? How did I go from being insulted by Charlee Cox to hiring her to be my assistant? How is it that she’s chaos in color - making me crazy and my life better at the same time? I never thought I would be staring down at her bright blue eyes begging me to go along with this ridiculous scheme I suggested. Yes, I suggested. Like the idiot I am, I thought hey, why not start an HR nightmare and have my assistant ask me to marry her? Confused? Don’t worry, so am I. But try to follow along, because this is how I became Boss Man Bridegroom. BMBG_teaser-3
EXCERPT:
**RATH**
"Rath Westin, my boss, my commander in chief, my Gucci Governor—"
"I don’t wear Gucci."
"Go with it." She winks and clears her throat. "Mr. Big Shot, Barking Britches, and Irritable Ira—"
"Jesus . . . Christ." I rub my hand down my face.
"Will you do me the great honor . . ." She wobbles on her bent knee and clutches my hand to steady herself. "Will you . . ." She tears up, her voice becoming shaky. "I’m sorry, I’ve never done this before."
"I sure as hell hope not," I say through gritted teeth.
"And I didn’t think I’d get emotional either." On a deep breath, she finishes, "Will you do me the greatest honor of all time and be my bridegroom?"
Christ, nothing is ever simple with her.
"Why did you say it like that?"
"Did I not do it right?" she mumbles to herself. "See, I knew I was doing something wrong."
"No, why did you say bridegroom?"
"Oh, well, that’s what you would be. You see, that’s what they used to call men who were soon to be married . . . a bridegroom. But then somewhere along the way they shortened it to groom. But if you marry me, I would give you the dignified pleasure of retaining the honorable title of bridegroom."
"Don’t call me bridegroom."
"Boss man bridegroom?" she asks with a cheeky grin.
How the fuck did I allow myself to get in this position? With my quirky and sometimes annoying but mostly efficient assistant, kneeling in front of me . . . proposing.
Proposing to me.
In a pair of belly-covering slacks and suspenders, hair pulled back into a tight bun like she often wears it, looking up at me through her red-framed glasses, her bright blue eyes shining past the lenses, begging me to go along with this ridiculous scheme I suggested.
Yes, me.
Like the goddamn idiot I am, I thought hey, why not start an HR nightmare and have my assistant ask me to marry her?
Confused?
Don’t worry, so am I.
Where do I even start? Maybe from the beginning?
Here is a quick rundown: my ex, who used to work with me, left me for bigger and better things. We don’t talk about her, ever, because she took my heart with her. Instead, I buried myself in my work. I became a hermit in my office, firing one assistant after another because they weren’t good enough or their voice annoyed me, or they thought salt was sugar and gave me one bad cup of coffee that ended their career at Westin Enterprises—that mistake was on them.
In my spare time—not that there’s much—but when I do have spare time, I follow my two idiot friends around the city, helping them avoid fucking up their lives. But now that they’re both in loving and committed relationships, one planning a wedding with my sister as the bride, I have much more time on my hands.
Maybe they’re to blame for my demise, for this ridiculous charade I’m now a part of.
What does this have to do with my assistant proposing to me?
Well, you see, I was in the market for yet another new assistant, and that’s when one of my best friends, Bram, suggested I lean on his assistant, Linus, to help me find someone. Side note: Linus is a gift from God, and I’ve offered him huge pay raises many times to jump ship and join my company, but his loyalty lies with Bram . . . unfortunately.
So Linus helped me find an assistant, and that’s where it started to go downhill.
The minute I saw her, I knew it wasn’t going to be a good fit.
Why?
Because she’s too goddamn beautiful.
Because she’s far too bubbly.
Because with every smile and checklist she devises, she makes me want to bend her over my desk and make her mine.
But, since I clearly don’t know how to make any decisions worth a shit, I hired her, right there on the spot.
And that was the beginning of the end.
Need to know more? Well in case you are on pins and needles about my answer to her proposal, I said yes.
Here’s the story of how I became Boss Man Bridegroom.
