Title: As Close to Perfect
Author: Maria Jane
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Editor: Jo Michaels, Indie Books Gone Wild
Cover Design: Daryl McCool, dam Cool Graphics
Publication Date: May 24th, 2022
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s Reviews & PR

Blurb:

She’s definitely attracted to his type and he seems as close to perfect as a guy could get. Only problem, she’d sworn off dating hot, muscled, athletic types for good.

Wronged by a string of jocks, Bree creates a hard rule: no dating athletes. Further, she enacts a list of other guidelines to protect a fragile heart. As per the rules, coffee meetups don’t count as dates, lunch doesn’t count as a date, there will be no physical displays of affection until after a real date, and no sex until he commits to an exclusive relationship.

Enter Nate. Tall and muscular with deep blue eyes and dark hair, he’s the perfect clone for the guys that hurt her before. If it walks like a duck, it’s a duck, right?

Enter Steven. She could not have ordered a more perfect person. Okay, so he is muscular, but not too tall. Be he’s also focused on his career. Definitely the mature man she’s been looking for.

When Bree allows herself to give in to her feelings, sparks fly. They’re happier than could be imagined. But being a couple is about more than just the two of them. Family, religion, location, and money all factor in.

Can they meet in the middle?

Read As Close to Perfect to get swept away in this perfectly imperfect melding of lives!

“If life was regulated by star ratings, I would be a one… maybe one and a half star.”
Single mom, Charlie, is trying to make it to the end of the week without another major catastrophe. Her day-to-day life is nothing what she expected it to be, and she doesn’t have time to figure out where everything went wrong. Keeping her head above water has proven to be harder than avoiding her ex-husband and his new girlfriend.
Topping the list of things she doesn’t have time for: laundry, balancing her bank account, and love.
But when dreamy Reid Fletcher, a handsome doctor from the city, moves into her little hometown of Blueberry Pointe, Charlie wonders if maybe her list is too long.
It seems the sexy doctor is determined to find a way into Charlie’s life, even if that means jumping into the eye of the storm and making her struggles his own.
Until life happens, tragedy strikes, and everything takes an all too familiar nose dive.
Can Charlie see through her brokenness and find her way back to happiness? Or will she do what she’s always done and put everyone else’s happiness before her own?
No one knows exactly how this will turn out, especially not… A girl named Charlie.

Title: Raiden

Series: Somnolence
Author: Ali Lucia Sky
Genre: Rockstar Romance, Paranormal Romance, New Adult
Release Date: June 6, 2022
Cover Design: Marcos Nogueira
I never expected to see my favorite rock band standing in the office of my high school getting their schedules. Kids my age aren’t known for touring the world and making music for the masses, but Somnolence is.
They welcome me. Raiden takes me in, loves me… it’s like a dream. Until darker forces, nightmares, and their own dark appetites come for me.
Disclaimer & Trigger Warning:
This title is in the mature New Adult genre and meant for an audience of 18+ due to triggering situations such as domestic violence and assault, PTSD, reference to sexual assault, sexual situations including MF, MFM, light MM & light FF, profanity and substance abuse.

Jumper walks over and points to the schedules in my hand. “We need to move on to those, but karma’s punishing Jonah for being a dickwad. He can’t open his locker.”

I glance over and see him fighting with it. I struggle with the good voice and bad voice in my mind. I want to make him suffer for being a prick, but my feet are already moving me toward him because I’m a good person. “Do you need a hand?”

“Are you offering to stroke me off?” Jonah asks, with frustration heavy in his tone.

“No.” I push him from his locker, grabbing his slip. “But I will see if it’s your charming personality that the lock is put off by or if the combo is just wrong.”

The rest of the guys chuckle and a second later, I spin the combination and the door opens. I look at Jonah and arch an eyebrow. “It’s not it, it’s you.”

“Good to know. Keep the slip, stalker. You can open my locker from now on.” He slams it shut and moves to the other guys.

“Aren’t you worried about me snooping through it and selling your stuff on auction sites?” I ask full of snark.

“I don’t plan to put anything in there, so no.” He looks at me over his shoulder like I’m a bug.

“Whatever, asshole. Let’s get this tour over. I need clothes for tonight and an excuse for not having my school work done.” I power walk by all of them.

“Nice going, Duke of Douche. Our tour guide is getting the impression that we are all assclowns because of you,” Jumper says.

I don’t slow down. Over my shoulder I say, “The library is just up here. It’s two stories. Study rooms have no windows or locks. IF you plan to do anything in those rooms, lean against them or put a chair under the knob. Don’t try to make out in the stacks. Someone is always watching. And I’m not talking about your notoriety. I mean that people here at PHS are hungry for gossip. Nothing stays secret forever.”

“Why do you need clothes for the night?” Raiden asks.

“I have a father that believes homelessness is a punishment. So I can’t go home tonight,” I answer, before thinking better of it. Of course, all they would have to do is ask around and someone would tell them. As I said, there are no secrets here.

“Now…” I continue. “The cafeteria is further down this hall. The taco bar is to die for. Don’t bother with the buffet. The roast beef is disgusting, but the taco bar is an A+. Develop a taco obsession and love yourself for it.”

“That’s what she said,” Trace coughs.

“I’m really good with a fish taco.” Jumper wiggles his eyebrows.

I cringe and spin around. “You know, if it smells like fish it’s not fresh. You should pass and find one that isn’t so old and nasty.”

Raiden chuckles, his eyes are hot looking. “I hear that when it’s fresh, it smells like lilacs.”

I blush. I’m wearing an essential oil that smells like lilacs.

I turn away from his lusty look. “The cafe is, of course, seated by cliques. You will have to weigh out your options later today. I don’t see you sitting with the jocks. But any one of the chicks that sit in this room are going to want to be all over what you have going on there.” I circle my finger in their general direction. “It’s going to be a regular old feeding frenzy.”

“Where do you sit?” Jumper asks.

“Vivi and I sit on our own, back on the left, fourth table by the window. We aren’t part of any of the cool kids. Well, she is the coolest kid in this school. I don’t know why she hangs out with me. You will like her. She likes… males.” I bite my lip and taste the split part reopen and bleed.

Trace’s head tips to the side, seeming to catch something in my voice. “Does she?”

“Vivi’s sweet. She’s sensitive. She’s really easy to take advantage of though,” I say with steel in my statement.

Jumper nods.

Jonah snorts. “Your friend’s a slut, we got it.”

Title: Viktor
Author: Apryl Baker
Genre: Security Romance
Publisher: Limitless Publishing, LLC
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
Viktor Kincaid is a man on a mission. He served his country in the Marines, and now he protects the threatened and vulnerable from harm as part of Kincaid Security and Investigations.

 

When his brother asks for his help protecting a friend from her violent soon to be ex-husband, he jumps into action.

 

No man has the right to lay his hands on a woman or child.

 

Sara Riley is not what he expected. She’s full of fire and passion, and she not only intrigues him, she could be exactly what’s he always been looking for.

 

Sara is ready to fight tooth and nail for herself and her young daughter. Escaping an abusive marriage is full of hidden dangers, but even with her ex violating the restraining order, Sara might be down, but she’s far from out.

 

I don’t want to be your rebound guy. I want to be your forever guy.

 

Viktor’s unexpected words scare her, but he’s slowly winning her over…and her baby girl. But can she let go of her own fears, or will her ex ruin everything before she can even try at a happily ever after?

 

So who am I?

Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
