Elena Reviews: A Beautiful Sin By Terri E. Laine & A.M. Hargrove

Title: A Beautiful Sin

Author: Terri E. Laine & A.M. Hargrove

Publication Date: June 23rd, 2016

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance
*From USA Today Bestselling Authors, A.M. Hargrove and Terri E. Laine, comes a standalone, Forbidden Love Story. 

Since I was a boy, my desire was to marry the church. To give my vows and life over to God despite the corruption in my soul. 

I am a sinner, the embodiment of temptation, or so I’ve been told. 

Yet, I’ve never touched, never kissed, never sought the company of another until her. 
She is my weakness, my salvation, my downfall and my freedom. Our sins are bound tighter than fate. 

My name is Canaan. I am an ordained Roman Catholic priest, forever and always. 

Her name is Haven. She may be my destiny, my destruction. 

This is not a love story, but rather a confession of all my sins. 

*Warning – A Beautiful Sin is a forbidden romance that blurs the lines between passion and religious faith. Please be warned, the subject matter may be offensive to some readers.

Elena Reviews: Lost Rider By Harper Sloan

Title: Lost Rider

{Coming Home #1}

Author: Harper Sloan

Publication Date: April 25th ,2017

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance

In Lost Rider, the first Western romance in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan’s Coming Home series, an injured rodeo star encounters an old flame but will she be just what he needs to get back in the saddle?

Maverick Austin Davis is forced to return home after a ten-year career as a rodeo star. After one too many head injuries, he’s off the circuit and in the horse farming business, something he’s never taken much of a shine to, but now that it’s his late father’s legacy, familial duty calls. How will Maverick find his way after the only dream he ever had for himself is over?

Enter Leighton Elizabeth James, an ugly duckling turned beauty from Maverick’s childhood—his younger sister’s best friend, to be exact, and someone whose heart he stomped all over when she confessed her crush to him ten years back. Now Leighton is back in Maverick’s life, no longer the insecure, love-stricken teen—and Maverick can’t help but take notice. Sparks fly between them, but will Leighton be able to open her heart to the one man who broke it all those years ago?

Written in the vein of Diana Palmer and Lindsay McKenna, this Texas-set series is filled with sizzle, heart, and plenty of cowboys!

Book Blitz - Too Much By Ella Miles {Giveaway}

Title: Too Much

Author: Ella Miles

Publication Date: April 10th, 2017

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance
A romance that starts at the end, and ends at the beginning.

He’s not coming.

He promised.

He swore.

He said he would always be here for me.

Except this time, when I really need him to be here, he isn’t.

He isn’t f**king here.

Quinn met Hunter five years ago at age eighteen. It wasn’t love at first sight. In fact, it was the complete opposite. But they did make a promise that day. If times ever got sh**ty again, all either of them had to do was text each other for help. For five years, they had always been there for each other until…they weren’t.
