Tanaka

I’m a good girl. 

I live by a code that can’t be bent or broken. It is my duty to my family to stay innocent and pure. To marry an Italian man. The stars are already aligned. 

But Nikolai Kozlov re-writes my destiny with five simple words. 

You belong to me now. 

He's Russian mafiya. A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he wants without a second thought. 

And what he wanted was me. 

He thinks he controls my fate, but what he doesn’t know is, sometimes it’s the good girls you have to watch out for. 

Nikolai

I’m a dangerous man. 

I live by a code. The Vory code. It is my duty to my family to protect the brotherhood. To destroy anyone who threatens what we stand for, including her. 

She’s a dancer. A beautiful little doll. My prisoner, and my new favorite puppet. This mafia princess thinks she has me under her spell, but in the end, she is simply collateral. 

It’s a shame to destroy precious things.

But this is what bad men do.

Nowhere Girl (Foundlings, #1) by Fiona Keane

✦ #ReleaseTour ✦ #Review ✦

Sophia… 

They thought sending me to this supposed tropical paradise would keep me safe. But there’s no place safe for me now. Not when the memories won’t leave me alone. 

I didn’t know what the universe had in store for me, but I definitely didn’t expect Jameson Burke. People think he has more secrets than I do, but he showed me his true self—his smile, his thoughtfulness, his love. 

I can’t afford to fall so far, so deep. Not after what happened. I should run, but somehow my heart keeps coming back to him... 

Jameson… 

I had my own reasons to run. Little did I know the most important piece of my story started and ended with the quiet girl sitting next to me in seventh period. 

Sophia Reid’s shy smile brought my soul out of hiding. Through her, I learned what starting over really means. 

But if I give in to this love, I’ll put us both in danger. 

For a short time, I was whole again, but what they say is right. The old me is dead, and the new one will never know love again.

One Night to Fall (Kinney Brothers, #1) by Kelsey Kingsley

✦ #BlogTour ✦ #Review ✦ #HotCop ✦ 99¢ Sale! ✦ #Giveaway ($25.00 Amazon Gift Card) ✦

Patrick Kinney wasn't a god. He was a parasite, and nobody worships a parasite.

Patrick Kinney was a glob of sticky, persistent peanut butter stuck to the roof of Kinsey McKenna's mouth, and she craved him.

In fact, she had been craving him ever since he set foot in River Canyon, Connecticut, when they were just three years old. And she hated it ever step of the way. (Well, sort of.)

But Patrick has a plan to fix it, and set the wrong things right. Can he turn it all around with one night and a sweet, but painful, trip down memory lane?

Fall in love again in this novella of firsts, second chances, and a little town on the coast of Connecticut, where everything meant everything.

Infamy (RiffRaff Records, #3) by L.P. Maxa

✦ #ReleaseBlitz ✦ #Excerpt ✦ #Review ✦ #RockstarAlert ✦

ONLY FOR...

Landry Cole's life began
when she was nine. Until then the day-to-day turmoil of her early childhood was
the stuff of nightmares. Her father, his wife, and all her aunts and uncles
showed Landry unconditional love, and under their care, she bloomed. But she
never forgot. Fast forward to the fifth year of her surgical residency, and
from the outside, Landry's got it going on. Inside, loneliness and betrayal
color her life until she meets the outrageous and daring Clashing Swell
drummer, Brody Frost.

THE SHORT TERM

Brody's life was golden. He surfed every
morning, his band, Clashing Swell, had just signed with RiffRaff records, and
he was free from emotional attachments. Until he met Landry Cole. To say she
took his breath away was an understatement. But she was a princess to rock
royalty, and Brody was no one from no where. Sure, the tour the band was about
to undertake would change all that, but he wanted Landry now. When she told him
they were short term, she wasn't going to be a tour widow, he thought he'd take
whatever she would give him. Little did he know she was about to give him
everything.

Crave: Part Two (Crave Duet, #2) by E.K. Blair

✦ #ReleaseBlitz ✦ #Review ✦

Weeks became months, and months became years. Each day, nudged Kason deeper into his addiction. Each memory of the girl destroyed fed the craving for what he could never have again. 

Leaving a life-altering first love behind, Adaline tried moving forward to find love and trust and happiness. Pain eventually faded, wounds slowly healed, yet scars were forever left behind.

But some scars feel like kisses. 

When the shattered pieces of their hearts are forced to meet again, the two of them must decide how much pain their love is worth enduring.

This is what happens when one person loves beyond the craving and the other craves beyond the loving.
