Shelby Leah
I love food. I love everything about it.
My dream has always been to land a job with the Food Network channel, and I’ve spent years as a food critic, blogger, and chef, tasting my way across the South to develop recipes that are a twist on the classics and uniquely my own. When a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity comes calling, I’m shocked to discover I’ve been paired with him, the worst blind date ever—bless his heart, and I’m determined not to let anyone get in my way. So, I buckle my designer heels, tighten my apron, and vow to myself there’s nothing in his playbook that’s going to stop me from tasting success.

Zach Wolff
I love wine. It is my life.
What I hate are critics. I hate everything about their dream-killing souls and elitist attitudes. So, when she shows up in the tasting room of my winery in northern Georgia, the devil in disguise wearing a pair of long legs and beautiful hazel eyes, I know just the plan to make and how to use her to get what I want. What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her, because in the end, I will win. I always do.

Two weeks.
His wine. Her recipes. A feature article in a special issue of a world-renowned magazine.
Pairing wine with food is one thing, but two hearts is another.

This was my very first Kathryn Andrews book and it was absolutely amazing. This most certainly won't be my last and I look forward to meeting her in NYC for a signing. 

I am not going to lie...that I clicked all the recipe links at the end of each chapter and I totally want to try a few of them out. Each recipe corresponds with something in the chapter that makes you feel like you are part of the story. 

From the moment you get to meet the main character in this book I just loved her...dedicated, fun and full of sass. Shelby and her best friend own a restaurant in Charleston and she freelances writing articles and journaling a food blog in hopes to reach her dream job of working for the food network. And when an amazing assignment comes up where she is asked to go to a vineyard and write an article as well as pair food with their wines she finds herself face to face with they jerk that one of her friends set her up with...Zach Wolfe, owner of Wolfe Vineyards. 

These two have the this hate/hate relationship from the very beginning of her stay. Between his mood swings and being hot & cold Shelby finds herself constantly questioning what she ever did to him to make him so mean to her. The angst in this book builds to what can only be described as the perfect crescendo. Then armed with a plan, Zach decides that he should try to be civil in the name of Wolfe Vineyards and he finds himself completely thrown off balance by Shelby....that is when things start to change and the dynamic between these two. But of course their are secrets, motives and hearts on the line...you will just have to download this book to find out how things fall apart and can they be put back together? 

Don't miss out on this book.

Excerpt

Copyright © 2017 by Harloe Rae

Lark shoots me a glare before asking, “What are you doing here?”

The venom in her voice is probably meant to scare me away but all I hear is come closer. I’m totally mesmerized.

“Hey, Sweetheart. I said you’d be seeing me soon. Figured I’d stop by and say hello in person.” I make sure to keep my tone calm but my skin inches with heat at the fire burning from her gaze.

“And I told you to leave me alone unless you’re ready to give me what I want.” She shifts her stare down to my groin while raising an expectant brow. “Is that what you’ve brought me?” She lifts her scorching eyes back to my face and seductively bites into her bottom lip.

Her sass is tantalizing but it’s the beauty underneath I’m truly after. “Sorry to disappoint you but that’s not why I’m here, Vix. I want to discuss some stuff, relating to us.”

“Vix? As in the vapor rub?”

An amused chuckle bounces up my throat. “Nah, short for Vixen.”

She seems to mull it over with a slight tilt of her head. “I suppose that's fitting, though you don’t need to be handing out nicknames. Tell me, what could we possibly have to talk about?”

“No idle chit-chat first? I’m hoping we can get to know each other. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you since the other night and this sexy librarian look you’re rocking is hot as hell, but it’s more than that. Are you willing to hear me out? Maybe make an exception for me?”

A frustrated sigh answers my question. “I don’t have the patience for this, Rowen. I’m very busy here and you’re wasting my time.”

I lean against the door, trying to show I’m not ready to leave quite yet. “Answer me this. Where did you work when you were younger? Let’s say seven years ago?”

Lark glances away before shuffling some papers into piles. Her fidgeting makes me smile because now I’m certain she remembers just fine. A barely-there blush blooms on her cheeks while she continues avoiding my question. I wait her out and soon enough she graces me with a response.

“I don’t see how that’s any of your business.” Her deflection causes me to edge forward a bit, as though we need to be closer. She speaks to the depths of my soul, no matter if she gives me sass or softness.

“I’m trying here, Vix. Want to help me out? Did you work at Brack’s Box during the summer of 2010? Maybe a guy stopped in on a random July afternoon and stumbled over his words in your stunning presence. Do you remember that?”

Lark is still avoiding eye contact but I hear her whispered yes as if she shouted it across the room.

I read the first book in this series and loved it, so of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one.

This book is a little different than the first book. The first book was clearly a reclusive romance swirled with soulmates destined to be together. This book leans more towards the soulmates and destiny type of romance. While this can be read as a standalone I felt like it sort of finishes Willow & Zander's story in the background of Lark & Rowen's story. My personal preference would be to read them in order, but I have been known to read a series out of order.

Do you believe in love at first sight, soulmates and destiny? This book will either have you swooning or wondering on what planet would that ever happen. I've warned you, but hey we read romance for the fantasy and this story will take you on a wild ride full of sexual tension and super hot sexy times. I am certain that the blowjob scene in this book is the hottest I've ever read and believe me I've read a lot.

Now that I've enticed you with some of the good stuff, let me get to the heart of the story. From the moment Lark and Rowen meet there is connection or pull to each other that they feel the moment their eyes meet. But the unthinkable happens...Rowen just disappears and Lark never hears from him again. Fast forward seven years and fate has its way and these two cross paths again. Check out this book to find out how Lark and Rowen find their way to their HEA. It's definitely a wild ride that you don't want to miss.

Excerpt

Like a wolf that’s sniffed its prey, my nostrils flare with excitement at the sight of the open door. Finally, after all this time, she’s mine.
I rush to the door like a rabid animal, wanting to claim her this very instant.
I can’t wait any longer. I want her so badly; I feel like I’m about to explode with need, so I storm through the door, ready to take her.
I kick the door to my cage closed and march toward hers. I ignore everything else in the room and focus solely on getting to her. I peer around the corner through the opening. There she is.
My woman.
My Ella.
I rush to her, not giving a shit that Syrena is yelling at me, asking what’s going on. I want her. No, I need her.
I want to bury myself deep inside her and hear her moans as I fill her with my seed. I want to feel her skin on top of mine; I want to lick her crevice and taste her sweetness on my tongue. I want it all.
But when I approach her, she cowers in a corner, diving away when I get close.
Her eyes are filled with fear as I stare at her for a moment, her body shivering.
But there’s no need to be scared. I’ll take more than good care of her.
I’ll give her every lick she’ll need, every kiss she asks for. I’ll protect her from anything and anyone. Because she’s mine now …
My woman.
My Ella.
I reach for her and grasp her arm. She resists, jerking free, so I take her other arm. Again, she pulls back and gives me this look as if she doesn’t want me to touch her. But that’s not true. I saw her looking. I saw those hungry eyes. I saw her practically begging for my cock when she licked her lips at the sight of it.
Just as her eyes slide down my body this very instant, taking in every inch of my length. She gulps, visibly impressed. A smirk spreads on my lips.
I know she likes what she sees.
She can’t deny her own body’s desires.
So I put my hands on her tiny waist, lift her up from the floor, and throw her over my shoulder.
Then I turn around and march right back into the room I came from, kicking the door to her cage shut.
With her fists, she pounds on my back.
Feisty. I like that.
It makes it much more interesting when she’s just as eager as I am. I’ll make sure she’s opened up to me before our time is over.
I put her down on the bed, and she immediately tries to crawl away. Towering over her, I grasp her ankles and flip her over. That blue dress looks pretty on her … but it’s in the way. So I lean over her and push it up with my hand until it’s right above her waist. I can see she’s struggling, her fingers desperately clinging to the fabric as if she’s afraid of what’s about to happen.
But the look in her eyes … it’s different from anything I’ve ever seen before. Like she doesn’t know what’s about to happen. Like it’s never happened to her before.
Could she be …?
I smile at the thought.
My seed will be the first to lay claim to her womb.
As I hover over her, she places her hands on my chest and face, pushing me away. I grasp them and pin them above her head. My face is so close to hers now … I can smell her delicious scent. With my eyes closed, I take a whiff, and they almost roll to the back of my head. That’s how good it smells.
But when I open my eyes again, hers are red, and water fills them again. With my thumb, I brush away the single drop rolling down her cheek. Then I tuck her beautiful white hair behind her ears, and I lean in to press a kiss to her lips.
It’s agonizingly slow for me, but I know I need to be gentle with her.
For all these years, her body went untouched, and it doesn’t know how to respond to a man like me. Doesn’t know how to yield.
But I’ll show her. With my body, I’ll teach her how to submit.

Release Blitz - THE LEARNING HOURS by Sara Ney

 

 He's not a douchebag; but that doesn't stop his friends from turning him into one.

MY FRIENDS WANT ME TO GET LAID. So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters: Are you the lucky lady who's going to break our roommate's cherry? Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have a pulse. He will reciprakate with oral. Text him at: 555-254-5551 The morons can't even spell. And the texts I've been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I'm not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one. THIS ISN'T THE KIND OF ATTENTION I WANT. One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can't bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white. However, after seeing her in person, I know she's not the girl for me. But my friends won't let up--they just don't get it. Douchebags or not, there's one thing they'll never understand: GIRLS DON'T WANT ME. Especially her.

I am not sure what it is about the concept of dating a douchebag, but I knew I had to read this series. I have been hooked since the very first book and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. Each of these can absolutely be read as a standalone and each one deals with a different kind of douchebag.

From the moment I got to meet the newest member of the wresting team I just knew this was going to be my favorite. Between his room/teammates trying to teach him a few lessons in complete college fashion....complete with signs to help him get laid. I couldn't help feeling bad for the guy and they way he handles all that gets throw his way is nothing short of fantastic. I fell hard for this socially awkward wrestler that can't seem to get his teammates to lay off, but it works to his to his advantage.

When the texts start rolling in all the fun starts and you get a front row seat to see how he meets his girl and how things change along the way and how completely clueless he is to the opposite sex. It is so very swoon worthy that I couldn't put this book down.

If you haven't read this series, then this one is a great one to start with AND...the entire series is releasing on audible.
