Blog Tour: Four Day Fling by Emma Hart

Four Day Fling, an all-new hilarious and romantic standalone from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Emma Hart is available NOW!

FOURDAYFLING3

Imagine this.

You’re ready to leave after a one-night stand, and you’re figuring out how to—shock horror—leave your number and ask him to be your fake boyfriend for your sister’s wedding this weekend.

When he wakes up.

Well, that happened to me. And over coffee and omelets, I found myself a date.

Which was how I ended up arriving at the wedding with a guy I knew nothing about.

I didn’t know his last name, or how we met, or how long we’d been dating. I didn’t know where he grew up, what he’d majored in in college, or how many siblings he had.

I sure as hell didn’t know he was Adam Winters, hotshot hockey player, and not only my father’s favorite player, but my little nephew’s freakin’ idol.

Which means I’m in trouble. Big, big trouble.

My mother is suspicious, my sister is bridezilla on crack, and my grandpa will tell anyone who’ll listen about his time in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.

Four days.

I have to keep this up for four days, and then Adam and I can return to our regular lives, where we don’t have sex whenever we’re alone, and my family aren’t interrogating him over his intentions with me.

At least, that’s the plan.

And we all know what happens to those.

Excerpt:

“Ready?” Adam strolled out of the bedroom, playing with the button on his shorts.

“For lunch with my mother?” I turned and stared at him, expressionless. “I’m thrilled.”

He laughed and adjusted the short sleeve of his white shirt. “It’s what—an hour? Then she’ll be back snapping at your sister’s ankles. Surely you can give Rosie a break for sixty whole minutes.”

“Oh no. I’ve done that guilt trip my entire life. I’m not getting it from my fake boyfriend, too.” I waggled my finger at him before turning back to the mirror to finish my make-up. “And yes, I can give her a break, but it doesn’t mean I need to be happy about it.”

“Do you ever get along?”

“Yes. When I’m in Orlando and she’s in Key West.”

“I mean when you’re together.”

“In the same room together, or having a conversation together?”

“Now you’re just being awkward, Red.”

I brushed a final stroke of mascara over each of my eyes, then stopped, wand in hand, and met his eyes in the reflection of the mirror. “Given how you ended up here, I would have thought you knew that awkward was my default mode.”

“That was cute-awkward. This is attitude-awkward.”

“How do you know there’s a difference?”

He pointed at himself. “Four sisters. I grew up with attitude-awkward. I could recognize it blindfolded with hands cuffed behind my back from two hundred miles away.”

“Wow. Someone’s cocky.”

“I thought we established that the night we met.”

My cheeks flushed. Damn it. Why did I have to blush like an idiot? Oh, that’s right. I was a redhead and so pale I was a distant relative of Casper the Friendly Ghost, which meant you could see my blushing a mile off.

“You’re adorable when you blush.” Adam grinned.

“Thank God,” I drawled. “That was my life goal. Be adorable. Now, I can get it in neon lights over my bed.”

Oh. My. God. This book was hilarious! It has been a while since I laughed out loud (multiple times) while reading a book and it is all because of Four Day Fling.

Poppy Dunn needs a date to her sister’s wedding and if she doesn’t bring one her mother will kill her. So, Poppy does the unthinkable and asks the guy she slept with the night before if he will be her date and act as her boyfriend during the four day excursion that is her sister’s wedding. What she doesn’t expect is for the guy to say yes. Things become even more crazy when Poppy finds out that said date is actually Adam Winters, big-time hockey player who just so happens to be her nephew’s idol AND her father’s favorite player. Antics of epic proportions ensue as Poppy and Adam try to convince her family they are dating, all while also trying to make this wedding go off without a hitch. What neither of them expected is for this four day fling to turn into something more.

I haven’t always gotten the appeal of the romantic comedies in the romance genre which may sound strange to some people. Don’t get me wrong, I can see why some romance readers like them but, for me personally, I normally gravitate towards books with angst in it. If there is even a hint of angst, it’s on my radar. But, I really enjoyed Four Day Fling and it was all due to Poppy Dunn being one snarky, sarcastic human being and her banter with Adam. Their connection was there right from the start and it only got better when they were thrown into the craziness that was Poppy’s family and her sister’s wedding. And boy, oh boy were Poppy’s family a handful. Seriously, if they had their own reality show, I would watch it and I don’t even like reality TV shows that much.

“Eh, Nobody would believe me.”

“What does that mean?” I turned her face to look at me.

Her eyes searched mine. “Nothing. Just that you’re doing a really good job at pretending you’re into each other.”

And while the banter was unbelievably adorable and highly entertaining at times, there were also a few heartfelt and kind of serious moments between Poppy and Adam that would make anyone swoon. I mean that balcony scene alone sold me. I was rooting for them from that moment which surprised me because I usually can’t get into books where the romance is comprised over a short timeline like four days. And while there were a few aspects I wanted more of, like Poppy’s interest in painting and a little bit more on Adam’s backstory/family, I still really enjoyed this book. I will even go as far to say that it has renewed my interest in the romantic comedy sub-genre of romance all together. Oh,  and I will be definitely picking up Emma Hart’s other books in the future that’s for sure.

So, if you like snarky heroines, a swoony hero who just so happens to be a famous hockey player, and a crazy ass family with enough drama to elicit their own TV show, then pick up Four Day Fling.

 

4 stars

Release Blast: The Naked Truth by Vi Keeland

TNT_Title_Black

A Standalone Second Chance Romance Novel

By: #1 NY Times Best Selling Author, Vi Keeland

TNT_FrontCover with black edge

RELEASE DATE: Monday, July 23, 2018

It was just a typical Monday.

Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client.

After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed.

Or so I thought…

Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch.

My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance.

And that was the good part of my day.

Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook.

A man who I’d only just begun to move on from.

A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about.

A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy.

Somehow, I managed to make it through my presentation ignoring his intense stare.

Although it was impossible to ignore all the dirty things he whispered into my ear right after I was done.

But there was no way I was giving him another chance, especially now that he was a client…was there?

Release Blitz: Breaking Mr. Cane by Shanora Williams

Breaking Mr. Cane, the gripping, steamy follow up to the bestselling forbidden romance, Wanting Mr. Cane, from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shanora Williams is LIVE!

Breaking-Mr-Cane-PRINT-FOR-WEB.jpg

KANDY

I was left broken, my heart beating a little bit harder in order to survive. I’d tried picking up the pieces, but when it came to Cane, it was hard to let go.

The way we touched was special and we promised to never forget one another. I had him right in the palm of my hand–thought everything was perfect–but in the blink of an eye, he was gone, leaving me with no choice but to pretend that what we had never existed.

CANE

She was off-limits to me, but I pushed the boundaries anyway. Now, I was stuck between a rock and a hard place, my career slowly but surely slipping out of my grasp, and ghosts from my past returning to make things much more complicated.

My love life had never meant so much to me until I met Kandy.

After being knocked down and left stranded, any sane man would have stayed far away, but I wasn’t sane–not by a long shot.

I knew reality was harsh, and the universe had all the odds stacked against us. Despite it all, nothing was going stop me from making her mine again.

And if someone tried, they were going to have to go over my dead body first.

KMA Teaser Being

Kiss My Ash, an all-new standalone Taboo romance by Leddy Harper
is coming August 9th!

#CougarTown #BoyNextDoor

Ash Jenkins was the typical boy next door. Wait, who am I kidding? There was nothing typical about that boy.

He was tall, ripped, and had the voice of a man twice his age. Intelligent, sexy as sin, and barely legal.

Sent to live with his dad after getting in some trouble with the law, he was definitely someone I needed to stay away from.

But he had his sights set on me, and he didn’t try to hide it.

Did it still make me a cougar if I was the prey?

Top Ten Tuesday [2]: The Best Books I’ve Read in 2018 (so far!)

ttt-big2

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic is: The Best Books I’ve Read in 2018 (so far!)


I don’t think it hit me that we were halfway through the year already until I started seeing people doing the Mid Year Book Freakout Tag on Youtube and seeing posts like this one on other book blogs. I too am not trying not to freak out too much about it. But I kind of am and that is mostly due to the fact that my reading goals are NOWHERE near where I thought they would be by this time of the year. BUT, I still have time, and I have already started rabbling.

It’s time to stay positive and what better way than to look back at the amazing books I have read this year. Here are the best books I have read in 2018…. so far.

1. That Girl by Kate Kerrigan
2. Midnight Blue by LJ Shen
3. Driving Whiskey Wild by Melissa Foster
4. Hothead by Stella Rhys
5. Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang


Have you read any of these books?

Which books have you read and loved this year so far?
