Stolen Kisses by Ruth Cardello Release Blitz and Review

He’s a business shark who has never let anything as insignificant as
caring stop him from taking over a company. Some call him heartless, but
he doesn’t see the value of caring about anyone or anything until he
meets Kenzi. 


Her happiness becomes his obsession. 

Kenzi
Barrington has tried to be the person her family needed her to be, but
she doesn't want to lie anymore. When she can’t hold a dark secret in
another day, she turns to the one man she knows is strong enough to hear
the truth. 


What starts as a simple attraction becomes a friendship that changes how they both define love.

Review

A book that make you want to be yourself and fix any strain on a relationship in which you may have with you parent. It gives you voice when you were a shell of yourself because of a past you couldn't control as well as one that left you broken beyond repair. 

Dax was a man who listened and took action more so than used words. Always honest even if it is the HARD tRUTH. The one person he wasn't honest with was himself buy Kenzi brought that lie to light and then some. She taught him love and devotion and he taught her that her voice needs to be heard and never stand down to please others because in the end you will resent them and have no feelings at all. That was the lesson in which she needed because The Barrington's although they were disfunctional they were tight knit and loyal to one another. Secrets tore them in two inside but on the outside they held their own and then some. It took the spitfire of the baby-girl to bring skeletons to light and allowed the family to shed a little more guilt and embrace what is there NOW. 

I can't wait to see what is next because this book left you wanting to pick Ruth brain for more even if she has no clue yet. YES, there are clusterfucks and mind bogglers that will have you ready to have the next book ASAP.... I do feel the best is yet to come even if I had the "FEELS" while crying and getting over each milestone.

He's Captured my Heart (Captured #1)









Like any dutiful Scottish daughter, Libby Stewart puts her

family first. She’s spent months helping her brother, a single father, care for

his new daughter. The strain of her family commitments led to the painful

demise of a two-year relationship. As Libby nurses her broken heart and

relishes time with her niece, her father offers her a job managing his hotel.

She’s ready to focus on her career and get her life back on track.








Alexander Mathews, a handsome American businessman who is staying at the hotel,

has other plans for Libby. She’s taken aback when she meets Alex. He strikes

her as arrogant and domineering, but regardless, the sexual tension between

them is palpable. Libby fancies herself a good girl, but Alex quickly seduces

her. Libby finds she is soon addicted to the passion she feels in Alex’s

skilful hands.





Libby has never been so confused. Who is Alex Mathews, really? An international

playboy, or truly the man of her dreams? When a confrontation with her

ex-boyfriend turns violent and she questions Alex’s loyalty to her, Libby must

decide if she wants to let this charismatic stranger from across the pond truly

capture her heart.












&




























He's Captured my Trust (Captured #2)  












Alex Mathews is a New York businessman who has a “work hard,

play hard” mentality and considers women as a means to an end. But Libby

Stewart, a beautiful hotel manager in Scotland, manages to do the impossible:

steal Alex’s heart and turn his world upside down. With an ocean separating

them, Alex arranges for Libby to visit him in the States for a long weekend…but

things don’t go quite as planned.








Sparks fly when Alex’s old friend enters the picture and one of Alex’s business

rivals shows an unsolicited interest in Libby. Tensions reach an all-time high

when the four of them are thrown together during an engagement party. But it’s

a series of passionate trysts and shocking betrayals that leaves Alex and Libby

wondering if their love was truly meant to be.





Can they learn to trust? Or will the sea between them prove to be too much to

overcome?





The second book in the Captured series, He’s Captured My Trust is a whirlwind

romance—filled with jealousy and desire as two star-crossed lovers struggle to

make their relationship work.

















&




















He's Captured my Soul (Captured #3)











Libby Stewart has everything she could possibly dream of,

and more. She has the job she has always dreamed of, she is the manger of

Stewart Hotel and Country Estate. A hotel on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

She has a close relationship with her family. The relationship she shares with

her twin brother Ethan and his daughter, is extra special because of the loss

they have suffered.








She also has the man of her wildest dreams. Never in a million years did Libby

see herself falling so quickly for a man again. But she fell hard for Alexander

Mathews, the arrogant, yet set American businessman.





They connect on all levels. They have passion and chemistry that is off the

charts. But has their relationship moved too fast?





Just when Libby thinks there is nothing to stand in their way of true

happiness, tragedy strikes. Libby is left wondering if history is about to

repeat itself for the Stewart family. Can Libby find the strength deep within,

to overcome the situation she finds herself in?

















&












She's Captured my Love (Captured, #4) 












They say everything in life happens for a reason…





Me? I just think life can be cruel. What was the reason my wife was so

tragically taken from me, from her family? Leaving behind a beautiful baby

girl.





Pointless…





I no longer look to the future. I live day by day.





These last few months have been the darkest of my life. But I’m still here,

getting by with the help and support of those closest to me. My sister has been

my rock. Don’t know where I would be without her. Even with all her own

troubles, she has always been at my side to help me.





But what happens when the very beautiful, confident, and sexy American Sophie

Mathews enters my life?





She is a breath of fresh air. But stirs up feelings and emotions that I thought

I had pushed to the back of my mind.





Is it too soon to move on from my past? Or are my ghosts going to haunt me

forever?

Ryker


She is the epitome of the girl next door, but with a feistiness that makes my dick throb.

He's all about the chase, wanting just one night. Everyone knows this, I know this. Still, I find myself craving him, my greedy body betraying what my heart and mind already know: he will only bring me pain.

He's the guy that girls like me should avoid. I'm smart, I know better. But when I'm with him, I feel things I’ve never felt before. Things I never knew I wanted.

I can't deny it … I like the chase. The high is explosive but I'm afraid if I give in, I may end up losing more than I can handle: my heart.

Lauren Hawkeye




New York Time and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Hawkeye never imagined that she'd wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it's easy to see that she's the only one who is surprised. Always "the kid who read all the time", Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she'd finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.




Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, two young sons, pit bull and two idiot cats, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting, reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!

Tangled Hearts by Sarah O'Rourke Blog Tour

Army Strong has a mission....to protect Southern Sassy at all costs. 

The directive had been clear: Deeply embed himself in the fair town of Paradise, Tennessee, and keep one Melody Song Reardon from forgiving her fornicating ex-fiancé and keep her safe by any means necessary.  Fortunately, Retired First Sergeant Callum Valentine had always been a man that got the job done. Unfortunately, nobody told him that while his ‘job’ might be as pretty as a picture, she could be ornery as a wet cat and had a stubborn streak a mile long. Now, he was battling baristas and dodging would-be assassins in an effort to keep one sultry southern minx safe.

He’d thought the Taliban would be the most dangerous force he ever face. Imagine his surprise when he realized that the radical extremists had nothing on one curvy little woman with a wicked edge to her tongue…. a woman that had somehow tangled herself around his cold heart.★✩★

Melody Song Reardon was done with men. After learning that the man she’d been going to marry was no better than a corporate Casanova in and out of the boardroom and bedroom, she’d decided that love just wasn’t in the cards for her.  Which was fine.  She was young, smart, and capable… and better yet, she had a dream and a plan: Opening her very own book/yarn store – Hooks & Books. She had the brains. She had the building. And now, she had a freaking bodyguard compliments of her interfering older brother?

She didn’t care how mouthwateringly handsome her so-called savior was; she didn’t need another controlling man in her life telling her what to do. At least, she hadn’t needed one…. until those nerve wracking hang-ups and strange notes took an ominous turn. Now, somebody wants her dead and the only thing standing between her and the Grim Reaper is one seriously gorgeous man named Callum Valentine.   Falling in love again in the middle of her own personal apocalypse hadn’t been the plans…then again, the great thing about a plan is that it can change on a dime!

Excerpt
Cal watched her another minute.  “You’re a stubborn little ball of fury, aren’t you?” he asked as he watched her try to attach the tool to the lug nut, wincing as the metal slipped for the second time in a row.

Melody took a deep breath before she slowly turned to face her tormenter.  “I was brought up believing that a girl should be able to take care of herself.  I forgot that lesson for a little while and almost made a mistake I could never undo with a man I’d rather forget.  I’m not ever going to repeat that experience again. So, to answer your question, yes, I’m a stubborn little ball of fury.  Now, will you please go on your merry way?”

Cal finally gave into the urge and laughed, earning himself a cold look from the woman currently on her knees.  “Careful, Princess.  I’m gonna get a complex here because it’s beginning to feel like you don’t like me very much,” he taunted her with a wink.  Seeing her press her lips together tightly, he knew she was fighting the urge to scream bloody murder at him.  Squatting beside her, he met her fiery gaze.  “Cat got your tongue, Pretty Girl?”

“No,” she declared with a shake of her head as she looked from him to his jacked up truck.  “Do you mind if I ask you a question?”

“Ask away, darlin’,” he invited silkily with a ready nod.  “I’m an open book,” he declared, holding his muscular arms out to his sides.  And it was true.  The book on him was open; it just happened to be written in code, he thought to himself as he gave himself a mental pat on the back for his own wittiness.

Melody offered him a deceptively sweet smile.  “Is it true that men use big trucks to compensate for smaller endowments in, well,… other more intimate areas?” she asked, dropping her voice to a conversational whisper as she gave his crotch a rather pointed look. 

Cal guffawed.  “Are you asking me if I’ve got a tiny dick, Princess?  Because I can tell you with a hundred percent honesty that the size of my cock and the size of my truck are very directly related.  They’re both big and bad, but if you don’t believe me, I’d be pleased to give you a private showing.”

Melody’s jaw dropped at his audacity.  “You… you just can’t say things like that!” she blustered, blushing furiously as he laughed in her face.

“I just did.  Besides, you started it,” he accused, propping his hands on his narrow hips as he leaned forward and stared her down.  “Don’t dish it out if you can’t handle having it spoon-fed back to you, Princess.”  Damn, Cal privately mused, he hadn’t had this much fun with a woman with her clothes on in years.  He couldn’t help wondering how exciting she’d be with her clothes off.  He definitely be making it a point to find that out as soon as humanly possible.

“I revert to my earlier statement.  You are a pig,” she reiterated with a disgusted shake of her head, her ponytail flying over one shoulder to smack him in the face as she moved.

“Maybe, but you’re just mad that you can’t seem to get one-up on me.  Not used to a man that will stand his ground and fight with you?” he asked, fishing for a response from her.  He wanted to know just how much she’d reveal about her ex-fiancé in casual conversation.  Her brother didn’t think there’d been any kind of physical abuse and based on her reactions to him, he tended to think RJ was right, but he wanted to be sure.  Because if he was wrong, she wouldn’t need his protection because he’d simply kill the motherfucker and be done with it.

“My former fiancé didn’t fight.  It was too low-class a thing for him to do.  He used to call our arguments spirited debates.  My ass, they were debates.  Freaking moron.  A fight is a fight, right?” she asked as she grunted with exertion while she tried to pry one of the lug nuts loose. 

“Right,” he agreed with a nod, sighing as her tool slipped again.  “Politicians have….what did you call ‘em?  Spirited debates?  Real men and women fight.”

“See, that’s what I thought, too.  But maybe that was the problem,” Melody muttered as she twisted the tire iron sharply, silently cursing the tight bolt.  “I always did think Bradley had political ambitions.  God knows that it’s what his dear old mommy and daddy wanted for him,” she continued to growl through gritted teeth as she twisted the tire iron violently.  “Eureka!” she shouted when the bolt moved a few millimeters. “Did you see that?  It moved,” she yelped, as her body made a tiny celebratory shimmy.
Cal chuckled softly at her little dance.  “Sounds like this Bradley fella was kinda a douche,” he surmised, carefully watching Melody’s face.

“That is the understatement of the frickin’ year.  Heck, maybe the decade, too,” Melody muttered, lifting one hand to take a swipe at her sweaty forehead. 

Edging toward her, Cal tried to make a grab for the tool in her hand.  “Seriously, babe.  Let me do that for you,” he demanded gruffly, afraid she was going to either damage the wheel well or herself with her rough use of the tool.

“I’m about done warnin’ you, Stranger, so I’ll try and be real clear one last time.  You try to touch my tire iron again and I’m gonna introduce it to the side of that hard head of yours.  Repeatedly,” she informed him grimly while she desperately tried to loosen the second lug nut.  “And, for the record, let me just state that I am most certainly NOT your babe,” she huffed, panting with exertion.

He could see her energy waning and shook his head.  “You’re completely right, you aren’t my babe,” he agreed, covering Melody’s icy hands with his as she growled fiercely at the tire.  “Right now, you’re more of my pain in the ass, woman,” he continued, his hands tightening on hers as he helped her turn the lug nut. “This’d be so much easier if you’d just let me do it,” he stated again, afraid he was going to hurt her hand by squeezing it too hard.  “Honest to God, sassy, sweet and stubborn is not the sexy combination I thought it would be on you.”
