Cover Reveal Hourglass Squared By K.S. Smith & Megan C. Smith

Title: Hourglass Squared
Authors: K.S. Smith & Megan C. Smith
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Blue Tulip Publishing


Hourglass Squared:
After recovering from being scorned by the same man, best friends Brooke and Savannah have not only mended their friendship, but also their hearts. With both girls finally married to the Worthington twins, these women have found it all and are living in pure marital bliss.

But not all honeymoons last forever. When Brooke and Josh announce they have a baby on the way, Savannah realizes this is all a bit more than she signed up for. With pressure coming from Jake to start a family, tempers flare and relationships are pushed to the breaking point; driving her to the brink of insanity as she is propelled toward the house in suburbia with the white picket fence.

Brooke tries to stand by Savannah, and be the best friend she has always been, but soon the tables turn and Brooke will need everyone's support as her world comes crumbling down atop of her.

Join Brooke and Savannah in Hourglass Squared as they fight any obstacle that comes their way, together. Relationships will be tested, friendships strained, causing the course of their lives to be changed, forever.


Rolling my head in the direction of the voice that just spoke my maiden name, I came face to face with none other than Luke Wellington. Utterly surprised by his presence I quickly tried to regain my composure, “It’s actually Savannah Worthington,” holding up my four carat diamond ring and matching wedding band I flashed it in front of his face and smiled, “I got married a little less than a year ago, so did Brooke.”

Luke smiled, reaching up to run his fingers across my cheek and I shuddered at his familiar touch, “I heard the two of you settled down, and with none other than our biggest competition, Worthington Squared.” Winking at me as his hand lifted his drink to his mouth.

“We did, Brooke and Josh are so in love, they’re even expecting a baby. We are so thrilled for them; all she talks about is being a mom.” I took a sip of the delicious rose colored drink that filled my champagne flute.

“And what about you,” Luke asked, “are you happy too? Will you and Jake be bringing a baby into the world anytime soon?”

Taking in a deep breath I pondered his question before answering, “Of course I’m happy, I love Jake, he is perfect, it’s just…” Faltering slightly I tried to form the rest of my sentence.

Luke’s eyes peered into mine. He may have turned mine and Brooke’s lives upside down, but regardless of all of that he still knew me like that back of his hand.

“What is it Sav?” He probed, sounding concerned.

Standing up I leaned in and hugged Luke tightly, “I’ve got to run; it was great seeing you, Luke.” Rotating on my heels I darted out before he could say goodbye and hustled back toward Hourglass to retrieve my car. Praying for the sake of my own relationship that this was as close to Luke as I’d ever be again.

    Release Date: September 16, 2014

    Deputy United States Marshal Mitch Knox apprehends fugitives for a living. His calm, cool, collected attitude and devastatingly handsome good looks earn him a well-deserved bad boy reputation, both in the field and out. While away on an assignment, he blows off some steam at a notorious Dallas nightclub. Solving the case that has plagued him for months takes a sudden backseat to finding out all there is to know about the gorgeous, shy blond sitting alone at the bar.

    Texas State Trooper Cody Turner is moving up the ranks, well on his way to his dream of being a Texas Ranger. While on a two-week mandatory vacation, he plans to relax and help out on his family’s farm. Mitch is the last distraction Cody needs, but the tatted up temptation that walks into the bar and steals his baseball cap is too hard to ignore.

    As Mitch’s case gains nationwide attention, how will he convince the sexy state trooper that giving him a chance won’t jeopardize his life’s plan...especially when the evil he’s tracking brings the hate directly to his doorstep, threatening more than just their careers.

    Author Bio:
    Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It's always a surprise to see what's coming next!
    I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!
    Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.
    I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.
    That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
    Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
    Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.

    My Review:

    Let me start by saying this is my first M/M romance novel. I got sent the invite for review and thought that is something I haven't read yet let's give it a go and I am glad I did. I was a little apprehensive at first because I didn't know what I was getting my self into, but with that being said I simply loved this book and am glad that Kindle was my first.

    The chemistry between the love interests is very evident and you can feel the angst and anticipation between them. Mitch was my fav. What can I say I love a smart mouth on a man and he has just that.

    While Mitch is trying to solve this case in Dallas he stays with Colt and Jace. They go out to let loose and while Mitch wasn't looking to meet someone he may have met Cody. We get to see these 2 alpha men try to fit  a relationship into there already crazy lives. Oh and did I mention that the sex is hot in this book.

    Kindle did a great job in telling this story and thank you for being my first experience in the M/M romance world. I will def be reading more in the future.

    Review Excerpt

    “The title of this series clearly defines what you need to expect in this book. Too many secrets and lies enough to suck you up into the story and find yourself craving for more as you reach the end of the book.”  ~Book Tease by RMG

    My Review:

    *****a definate 5 star read*****

    I absolutely LOOOOOOVED this book.

    There are very few books that you come across that make you wanna break down and cry, laugh, get all giddy when something good is happening, make you scream things like I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING, OMG I'm going to beat his ass (lol!) and melt your heart all at once. That is exactly what this book does. It is the highly anticipated 2nd book in the Buried Secrets Series.

    LBTS picks up right were CIC leaves us. You know the part were you were screaming NOOOOOOO and going to throw your reading device because Silla left us in her web with the worlds biggest cliffy to date. Yeah that one. But boy was LBTS worth the wait. If I could go back and unread it just so I could read it again and experience it again I would. It just wrapped me around it's little pinkie and didn't let me go. Let's just say I grew a major crush on one of our boys ***Coughs Luke*** in this book (boy is he a kinds of swoon worthy. Just sayin)and that little Heidi Jo makes your heart melt while keeping it sassy. As for Carly Jo, Savannah And Colton well you will just have to read it to find out.

    Seriously get your tissues, wine (or drink of choice), and be prepared to have your world changed forever. Go one click it now.

    Blog Tour Stop for Honey Whiskey by Carina Adams

    Title: Honey Whiskey: A Bastards M.C. Novel
    Author: Carina Adams
    Genre: Contemporary Romance/MC
    Release Date: July 31,2014

    Buy The Book Amazon:
    Amazon UK:

    Honey Whiskey is not a standalone book; it is the second book in the Bastards series. In order to fully understand the characters and storyline, without feeling confused, you must read the first book about Matty and Jo, Always Been Mine.  The Bastards live in a world that most don’t understand. We follow our own rules, only accountable to each other, the innocents we protect, and the people we couldn’t save. Each of us wears a mask, hiding behind a polite smile and a respectable job, covering the monsters inside. I made peace with who I was a long time ago. I have no regrets. Except one.  I've been in love with Jo Walker for years, always standing on the sideline, playing the only position I could. When she looks at me, she sees her best friend; he's the man I want to be. I blew it once; I walked away, leaving her with more questions than answers, knowing it was best for both of us.  A few months without her made me realize that nothing mattered if I couldn’t have her. I need to get her back, and I’ll do anything she asks, including telling her my darkest truths. I expect her to run away and never look back. That’s the smart thing to do, the safe thing to do. I’m no good for someone like her. This life will only syphon all the goodness away, leaving her bitter and cold. It seems like my choice should be easy. 
    But, I’m not letting her go without a fight.
    My Review
    First off I love a good MC book and this series has a different spin on the normal MC books out there.

    I really enjoyed getting to know about Mattie and Jo in the first book ABM. The first book gives you the back round about their relationship and how it evolved from friends to lovers. Jo has been through the ringer with a divorce looming and a best friend turned lover that is keeping secrets because he is afraid he will lose her.

    We get the continuation of ABM in Honey Whiskey . We get a lot of answers we want to know from ABM. In book 2 we get to know more about the Bastards, how they work, and what they represent. You will also get to meet each of the members and get to know more about each of them.

    These first 2 books will take you through the beautiful love story of Mattie and Jo. Carina has a way that makes you feel like you just want to hold on and never let go.

    Honey Whiskey can be read as a standalone but if you are anything like me. You will want to read Always Be Mine first. I love having back round to a book and that’s what you get with ABM.

    These books will defiantly be recommended to all my book girls and followers. Carina you did an amazing job of having me fall in love with the characters in this book. Although they are rough around the edges you can’t help but to love them and feel what they are going through as you read these stories. I can’t wait to read Rockers book and the rest of the series. Can’t wait to see what the Bastards have in store for us.

    Mel <3 <3

    Extreme Close-Up By Julie Jaret Review

    He’s hot, young, and way off-limits...  But he might be just what she needs to get over the past and on with her life.

    Lisa Taylor’s life stalled after her divorce three years ago, and she never got it started up again.  Now her shit-paying catalogue photography job is boring her to death, she can’t bear to look in the mirror, and she hasn’t had a man since her asshole ex left.

    When a gorgeous younger man reappears in her life, he promises to be the solution to all those problems.  Tempting as he is -- and god almighty, he is! -- taking what he offers could destroy what little she has left.

    Lisa backed off, making sure to get more than an arm’s length from him.  “Braden, I’m sorry, but I’m not interested in you that way.”
    He relaxed against the counter, crossed his arms and gave her a pointed look.  “I thought we didn’t bullshit each other.”  A small smile softened the words.  “I’m not ashamed to admit I want you.  Why pretend you don’t feel the same?”
    Ignoring the rush of wet lust in her panties, she insisted, “I’ll admit you’re very attractive, but that doesn’t mean I want you like that.”
    “With all due respect, Ms. Taylor, your eyes and your body say you do.”
    “Pardon me?”  She wouldn’t have responded had she not been so totally caught off-guard by his comment.
    “Your pupils are dilated; you’re breathing like you just ran up the stairs; your cheeks are flushed; and...”  His own darkened eyes dipped down to her breasts.  
    She didn’t have to look to know her nipples were hard.  And now they tightened even more for him, the traitors.  Humiliated, she crossed her arms over her chest.  “I’m not having this conversation.”
    “There’s nothing to be embarrassed about, it’s just your body’s involuntary response to certain stimuli.  It’s physiology.  Happens to everyone.”  Before she could interrupt, he asked, “Do you remember at the lake house once, about ten years ago, I pitched a fit and ruined the whole day?”
    He chuckled.  “Yeah, I know.  I was a brat.” 
    “And what’s that got to do with my wanting to crawl under a rock and die right now?”
    “I’m thinking of one tantrum in particular.  My dad was giving me shit because I had a hard-on, which, of course was my body’s involuntary response to certain stimuli.  It happened a lot back then, and dad never missed an opportunity to call me out on it.”
    “Asshole,” she muttered.
    “That day, the stimulus occurred when Jake was grabbing at you, trying to get you to pick him up.  Your bikini top slipped for a second, and I got my first glimpse of a nipple.”  
    “Oh god,” She gasped from a mixture of embarrassment and something else.  
    “Five minutes later, dad caught me starching a sock and decided to be a complete dick about it.”
    “I’m sorry,” she winced.  “For what it’s worth, though, I appreciate your telling me.  Nobody’s ever starched a sock in my honor before.”
    He laughed at her.  “Yeah they have, trust me.”
    Lisa felt her face flush.  “Oh.  Well, no one else ever told me about it.”
    “Maybe no one else has been out of his skull in lust with you for half his life.”  He took a deep breath at the same moment Lisa lost all ability to breathe.  
    “Braden, I’m beyond flattered, but there’s Jake... and everything else.  You know this can’t happen.”
    His eyes and voice were dark as sin as he inched closer, “I know we’re both adults, both single.  I know I’m dying to touch you.  I know I can make you feel good.” 
    “Are you trying to kill me?” she whispered.

    Review: This book was quite the little surprise. I sometime buy books by the cover and to be honest this book may not have been one I read if not for the tour.

    I enjoyed this story because it is a little out different from the normal romance I read. Yes I like steamy little books and this book is just that. It has the best friend, the off limits relationship and the hot steamy sexiness a book should need.

    Julie did a great job with this book and finally putting a normal girl in the spot light and making it ok.

    Author Photo (Attached)
    Julie Jaret is an American screenwriter with one feature film produced and some others on deck. Her alter-ego needed an outlet, so here we are.
    Julie lives in the southeast U.S. with her sexy and supportive husband, two funny and beautiful kids, and one big doofus of a dog. She enjoys living vicariously through her fictional characters, often to the point of distraction... (Luckily, her hubby and kids know not to expect dinner at a certain time. Or at all.)
