EXCERPT:
It’s crowded, but since it’s a weeknight, it’s not nearly as packed as usual. Since I’m about to lose my bull riding virginity I’m thankful for the slightly smaller crowd. As promised, Mike goes first but the ride operator isn’t as gentle on the men and he flies off pretty quickly. I think he might have wacked his balls against the hand hold on his way down. He winces a bit as he gets up. “You okay?” I ask him, giggling, but I’m truly worried about his man parts. He pulls me in close, his breath caressing my ear. I’m holding my breath as he whispers, “I think my baby makers are broken.” I laugh as he places a kiss on my cheek. “Good luck, baby, now go ride that bull like you’d ride me.” He says it loud enough for everyone to hear and if I thought I was going to go deaf from the music before that was nothing compared to the whooping and hollering of the crowd. Of course the ride operator uses it to his advantage “What’s your girl’s name?” he yells across to Mike. There’s a devious gleam in Mike’s eyes as he replies “Jessica, but all her good friends call her Jess.” He nods that he’s got it and after I’m straddled onto the bull, he holds nothing back. “Alright, everyone, let’s hear it for our new friend Jess! Now, we all heard her boyfriend tell her to ride our bull like she rides him at home, so I think we’re in for a show.” My cheeks were already flushed from the alcohol, my palms sweaty from nerves, but the embarrassment zinging through me makes my entire body burn. I catch Mike out of the corner of my eyes, laughing and shrugging his shoulders in a semi apology. At least he had the decency to not give my real name. The bull starts off nice and slow, periodically gyrating a few times in a forward motion, but I’m able to hold on with just one hand. I don’t really know how long this goes on, maybe a minute or so, when I hear the announcer tell Mike over the PA system that he’s a lucky man. At this point, he’s done being nice and the bull starts bucking around like crazy. I’m able to hold it together for about another thirty seconds or so before I go flying off. Someone helps me to my feet and I stumble over to Mike as the crowd starts chanting ‘kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss’. Hell, at this point what does it matter? Mike’s eyes seek permission from mine as I wrap my arms around his neck and pull him close. He kisses me and the crowd goes wild. It’s just like the kiss we shared in my bed a few days ago—a little more than just friends, but not exactly like lovers. Whatever it is, I allow myself to feel it and the crowd cheers their approval.

Roc n' Read REVIEW

Simply amazing!  Absolutely incredible!  And even those words don't do it justice. The amount of emotion that D. Kelly was able to evoke with Loving Kate is astounding.  I can't think of another book where the tears just kept streaming down my face.  

This must be what they mean when they talk about a book hangover.  I feel lost, but in a good way.  My brain is spinning.  My heart is beating, but I'm not sure at what rhythm.  My eyes burn with unshed tears.  My throat is tight.  And I find myself just staring off into space in awe over what I've just read.  

I don't know how she did it.  She put all the right words together and created something amazing, incredible, extraordinary, spectacular.  An ending so magnificent, so phenomenal, so... WOW!  Just perfect!  

The final book in the Acceptance Series was the absolute best, and isn't that really how it should be?  Don't you want the finale to be bigger and better than anything that came before it?  

When I read the prologue, I was already wowed.  I knew this was going to be a great ride, but I had no idea it would be so much more.  D. warned me that she was in tears when she finished writing it, and I'll admit, that scared me a little, but I couldn't stop reading.  And yes, I was definitely in tears and needed an entire box of tissues (good thing I'd stocked up for the cold I've been fighting the last couple of weeks), but I didn't need to be afraid.   

There were tears throughout the book, but somewhere in Chapter 10 they started and they didn't stop until well after I read The End.  Even writing this now, the next morning, while sitting on the train on my way to work, I'm fighting them back...mainly because these other people around me just wouldn't understand.  

The series may be over, but I can't even be sad about that because D. Kelly did such an unbelievable job wrapping up this story.  If you love LOVE, and you haven't started this series, I strongly suggest you go grab it now!  The first word of Loving Kate is Perfection, and in my opinion, that's exactly what this is.  Thank you D. for bringing us perfection!

BLOG TOUR: That's a Lie by Victoria Klahr




Find out if Seth will be able to show Josie the true meaning of love in,
That's a Lie
the sequel to That's a Promise.
TITLE: That’s a Lie (Promises, Promises #2)
AUTHOR: Victoria Klahr
GENRE: Contemporary Adult, New Adult
RE-RELEASED: February 27, 2015

SYNOPSIS:
Seth is back.


When he walked back into my life, it almost felt like the pieces of my broken heart could be fixed. I thought we could go back to being best friends, but then I started to feel what I had been blocking out for years. I tried. Boy, did I try! But once I started to let him in, I wanted nothing more than to cross that line from friendship into something more…


Just when I think I can move on and let myself be happy, an ugly reminder from my past comes storming in and threatens to destroy the sliver of hope that's been growing since Seth came back.


Do I even deserve to be loved?


“I’m not asking to fix your heart. I’m not asking to mend you. I love each and every shattered piece of you. I’m asking that you let me love you. Let me love each piece of your broken heart, and I swear to you I will make up for every heartache you have ever experienced.”


I came back for Josie.


I knew I'd have to fight for her, but with the loss of her dad and the truth about what happened with her and Blake, I quickly realized that making her mine was going to be a lot harder than I first thought. The problem is, I can’t pretend like she’s just my best friend. I can’t pretend I don’t want more.


I'm willing to do anything to get her to admit she has the same passionate feelings for me, because I know once she opens up and stops lying to herself, I can show her what it really means to be loved. It's a battle of wills, but my love for her is stronger than her will to stop me.


So I fight for her. I fight because I know she deserves it.

Excerpt from That’s a Lie 

I was instantly distracted as I walked into the space. Seth. Shirtless. I don't think I need to explain my lack of focus. Or the drool.  

"You lied to me," he said gruffly, sitting on the barstool at my counter. His blond hair flopped in front of his eyes, and my hands itched to push it back. Touching him again the way I wanted to would satisfy only a millimeter of the need I have, but it would relieve some of the pain. I turned around to hide my thoughts. 

"Ugh . . . I need coffee," I said vacantly, reaching for my coffee maker. I didn't even hear Seth move, but his hand grabbed mine and he turned me around, placing his hands beside me on the countertop to trap me. My breath caught, and I was positive he could hear my heart pounding in my chest. 

His blue-green eyes screamed hurt and anger, but I didn't even care about him being mad. All that mattered was the charge that thumped between us. I was very aware of him. "You lied, Josie. You're not supposed to lie to me.""Seth . . . Come on," I said, turning my face away, unable to look at the raw emotion in his expression. His hand dashed out and grabbed my chin. 

"How long, Josie?" he asked. I closed my eyes, not wanting to admit anything. "Open your damn eyes, Jos. Stop fucking hiding." His voice was hard, but it was also full of desperation. I opened my eyes and narrowed them at him. He didn’t understand that I needed to keep him away from me. My life is tainted by darkness, and he 

doesn't need that. Yes, I lied to the one person who I said I wouldn't deceive again, but it was for his own good! "It doesn't matter, Seth. I'm fine.""Like fucking hell it doesn't matter. I haven't heard you scream like that since your nightmares after you were raped!" 
The haunting reminder brought back vivid memories of that time. He or one of my dads would come lay with me to help me fall asleep. Every day that Seth wasn't in school, he was there with me, trying to make the nightmares go away. "Since the engagement party," I whispered, looking down. I don't know why I admitted it, but I think part of me realized I couldn't hold on to all this pain anymore. That's when my resolve started to break. How long could I go on fighting the feelings that I have for Seth? How long could I act like nothing hurts me? "Fuck, Jos . . . ," he whispered back, placing his forehead against mine. His signature smell of hay and apple pie drifted around me, and I almost lost my footing from wanting him so bad. "You should have told me.""I didn't want you to worry." "I worry about you every second you're not with me, Pussycat. Every second that you hide behind that 
wall you've built, I wonder when you're going to crack." His hand reached up to caress my face, and I leaned into his touch. It was only an infinitesimal movement, but I still heard Seth's breath hitch. My lapse in self-control made him bold. He brought his mouth to the side of mine, and kissed me. I couldn't stop the 
whimper before it escaped my mouth. "There you are," he whispered hoarsely against my lips, always seeing me, even when I didn’t want him to. I wanted to bask in the moment, but I had already opened up to him too much. I pushed through 
his barricade and ran back to my room. "I've got to help Dad at the garage today," I threw out as an explanation, and then I went to hide in my shower.




OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES:
That’s a Promise (Promises, Promises #1)


SYNOPSIS:
Pain isn’t new to me.


I’ve been to hell only to find it never really leaves when you get back. It haunts me through nightmares, unrequited love, lies, broken hearts, and now death.


A monster almost took my life.
My best friend carries half my soul a world away.
My boyfriend broke my heart but refuses to let me go.
And my father is dead.


I don’t believe in fate and I don’t believe in happily-ever-afters, but for some reason, I still hope.


Live, even with a tainted spirit.
Long for my other half to come back to me.
Risk another broken heart, just to feel loved again.
And refuse to let another horror break me.


In the face of my most recent tragedy, I have to decide whether forgiveness is something I can give. But even if that’s an option, can I be forgiven?

Review

This was an ARC 're-read of sorts. I read the original, but then Victoria went and 're-wrote it with some new content and edits. I still loved the revised version just as much as the original. I did recognize some of the changes/additions, but the overall storyline did not change. And now, I have to wait for book #3 to see what the future holds for Josie and Seth next. I know it's not going to be easy.

Here is my original review from the first time I read That's a Lie.  

When Seth left in That's a Promise (the first in this series), I thought "good riddance." But when he returned in That's a Lie, he turned up the heat...to an inferno! I thought I wanted Josie with Blake. I even wrote an entire blog post about why she should choose him. And then Seth showed the error of my ways and convinced me that he was Josie's soul mate, her true love, her hero. And Blake turned out to be a total disappointment. Not just a disappointment, but a grade A, first class, JERK! How could I have been so wrong about him? Seth will melt your heart, especially when he tells Josie, "You're my chocolate!" (That will make so much more sense once you read it.) Victoria Klahr, you earned 5 stars, if for not other reason than you made me want to read the final chapter twice!!

BLOG TOUR: Perfect Game by Collette West


Baseball season is almost here.  Spring Training is in full swing.  What better way to welcome the season than with a hot, sexy ballplayer story?  


Title: Perfect Game
Author: Collette West
Genre: Contemporary/Sports Romance

For New York Kings' first baseman Scott Harper, scoring women is easy. He's ready to get naked anytime, anywhere. But when a hacker leaks his nude selfies, he's unprepared for the scrutiny his full-frontals receive.

Carrie McKenzie has a love-hate relationship with her body. No longer the fat chick guys can ignore, she wins the job as the Kings' clubhouse reporter. With her svelte new figure, she nabs an exclusive interview with Scott to get his take on the scandal.

However, the two are already on a first-name basis after Scott came on to her in the hotel bar, and she woke up in his arms. The problem is that Scott doesn't do relationships and Carrie doesn't date jocks, yet the way they burn up the sheets is deserving of more than just a one-night stand.

Scott shows Carrie that he has a sweet, caring side beneath all the swagger. But can she really trust her heart to the biggest player in the game?

About Collette


Collette West grew up as somewhat of a jock-nerd hybrid. Entering the world three weeks premature, her dad nearly missed her birth because he had seats behind the dugout for a sold-out, highly-anticipated match-up between two of baseball's biggest rivals. Not to be outdone, her book-loving mom taught her how to read by the time she was three. A love of the game coupled with an appreciation for the written word were instilled in Collette's impressionable brain from a young age. No wonder her characters believe in the philosophy: sports + romance = a little slice of heaven.

Splitting her time between the Pocono Mountains and Manhattan, Collette indulges her inner fangirl by going to as many games as she can from hockey to baseball and downloading every sports romance novel in existence onto her iPad. When she's not clicking away on her laptop, she enjoys walking her dog in Central Park, satisfying her caffeine craving at the Starbucks on Broadway and keeping an eye out for Mr. Right. But above all, she loves dishing with her readers. Email her at collette_west@yahoo.com.

Review

I love baseball!  My parents took me to my first professional baseball game when I was still in high school.  A few years later, I had season tickets to that same team.  I've been to spring training. I've been to the playoffs.  I've yet to go to the World Series, but I've been to a World Series celebration parade.  I've had my picture taken with the World Series trophy.  I've been to ballparks from coast to coast.  I love this game.
And I love to read!
So when you put my two loves together, I am in heaven!  And Collette West knows how the game is played.  She doesn't strike out with her stories.  She's not swinging and missing.  She connects!  Her stories bring me back to all those days I spent at the ballpark.  All those summer days listening to the crack of the bat, the sound of the ball hitting the catchers mitt.  That's what Collette West does - she not only tells a story, but she puts you in the ballpark.  

5 baseballs a.k.a stars!

I’d never met anyone quite like Mathias Wade.
 

He was brooding and arrogant, but I loved him anyway.

Excerpt

I jumped up on the counter and he moved to stand in front of me, bracing his hands beside my hips. I kicked my legs against the cabinets like a little kid as he stared down at me intensely. I wasn’t sure what he was looking for in my eyes, but he must have found it, because he cupped my cheek and leaned in.
“This feels like when we were younger,” he whispered. “Like no time at all has passed.” His words echoed my previous thoughts.
