Release Blitz: The Backup Plan by Jen McLaughlin



About the Book:


I’m beyond help…


I threw a football before I could walk. Everything in my life revolved around football–and I loved every second. I was a star. Until, suddenly…I wasn’t. Now everyone thinks I’m the monster who killed his best friend. I’m an outcast on campus, silent and alone. Then Taylor Selmer walks back into my life. When will she learn–I’m beyond saving.


I need to save him…


Chase and I used to be friends. But after the accident, nothing was the same. We used to have something special–until we didn’t. But he doesn’t smile anymore. Doesn’t talk. Doesn’t play. It hurts me to see him this way, and I will do everything I can to get him back in the game. Whether he likes it or not.

Excerpt from THE BACKUP PLAN:


The door opened…making me fall backward into Chase’s pitch-black room. When I landed against something hard and naked, arms closed around me without hesitation.

A palm brushed my right breast, sending a wave of awareness shooting through me. I tried not to think about that, though.

Guys were nothing but trouble.

I had bigger plans than falling for a smooth talker with bright eyes and a fake smile who would do nothing but distract me. Once I managed to regain my balance, I spun on my heel and looked at him.

The room behind him was dark, but the hallway illuminated his hotness. And once it did? I wished I hadn’t looked at all.

He stood in the doorway, looking completely unfazed by the fact that he’d basically just felt me up, and glowered at the guy in the hallway. He was shirtless, and wearing nothing but a pair of black sweats. His chest was hard and chiseled, and his abs…yeah. I wasn’t gonna touch upon those for the sake of my own sanity.

Waxing poetic over his abs wasn’t part of my job description.

“Uh, hey…” the guy in the hallway said, trailing off after a feeble attempt at pretending he hadn’t been talking crap about him moments before.

Chase’s green eyes met mine before focusing on the guy in the hall again. His sharp cheekbones were the same as I remembered, and so was his short brown hair. He used to have dimples in his cheeks when he smiled, which had softened the harsh lines of his face and given him a softer appeal, but I had no idea if they still existed since he hadn’t smiled at me yet. Or…at anyone all day. Had he forgotten how?

He said nothing. Just stared the other guy down.

Even I had to admit his stony silence was impressive.

Of course, he kind of reminded me of his dad right now, something he probably wouldn’t like. Or would he? I had no clue.

“I didn’t mean to…” The guy backed up, his face pale, and looked back at me. “She a friend of yours?”

Chase didn’t answer him. He just motioned me inside, his jaw ticking ever so slightly. When I didn’t move fast enough, he shot me a look with those gorgeous eyes of his, and I jumped slightly. “Um. Yes, I am.” I swallowed hard and inched past him, making sure I didn’t brush against his bare chest in the process.

Chase slammed the door behind me. I blinked across the inky blackness of the room, my heart hammering away in my ears. He’d been sitting here in the dark this early in the night? Had he been napping before hitting the books?

I’d learned college kids napped more than one year olds—and much more enthusiastically.

“Do you have something against lights?” I asked, forcing a little laugh at the end.

Dead silence met my joke. In all fairness, it was a pretty lame attempt. For a second I wondered if he was even in the room with me, but I heard him breathe. I turned my head, trying to figure out where he was. To my left, maybe.

“Okay. No lights, then. That’s fine. It’s cool. I’m not scared of the dark.” I paused. “Were you taking a power nap? I could use one. I got an hour of sleep last night.”

Still nothing.

I sensed him there, right next to me. He wasn’t touching me, but I swore he was thinking about it or something.

That makes no sense, Taylor.

I shivered, anxious and excited, all at the same time. “I don’t know if you remember me, but I’m—”

Without warning, Chase moved close enough for me to feel his heat. I backed against the wall until I couldn’t back up anymore. It wasn’t that he scared me. He didn’t. I just…

I just backed up, okay?

“You’re Taylor Selmer. Of course, I remember you. Why are you in my room?”

One fiery American woman and one hot British guy? The language of love knows no boundaries…

✮✮✮WANDERLUST is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮

From #1 NYT bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a sexy new standalone romance!

The first time I met him, his sexy British accent almost talked me into giving him my number on the spot. The second time, he nearly charmed the panties off me with his wit. Then I learned he’s the key to success in my new job in Paris. The man who tempts me into fling-worthy dirty daydreams has turned out to be my personal translator, and his accent is the hottest thing I’ve ever heard.

My mantra is simple — Don’t mix business with pleasure.

I do my best to resist him as he teaches me how to converse with my co-workers, navigate the metro and order the perfect bottle of wine at dinner. But I also figure out how to tell the charming and clever man what I most want to say — that I want him to take me back to his flat — tonight.

Except there’s a catch…


One more assignment before I take off on my big adventure…

And it involves the toughest work ever — resisting the fetching American woman I spend all my days with. But you know what they say about best intentions. Soon, we’re spending our nights tangled together, and I don’t want to let her go. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and before we know it I’ll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.

What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing…unless one of you is leaving.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Just in case Wanderlust needed a more romantic backdrop that what the amazing Lauren Blakely had already written, this remarkable, swoon-worthy romance is set in Paris. Complete with a balcony with a view of the Eiffel Tower that Griffin and Joy put to *very* good use!

I loved the idea of American Joy and Brit Griffin meeting one another in Paris, a city they are both drawn to for their own personal reasons. Their meet-cute was absolutely adorable, and the fact that they later realize that he is her French translator — therefore meaning that no hanky panky should go on between them — adds a bit of a forbidden aspect to the sizzling connection between them. Instead, Griffin and Joy decide to be friends, and we then see this couple really get to know one another. As part of his brother’s dying wish to fulfil a bucket list, Griffin is planning to leave the city after his assignment with Joy ends, but not without teaching her how to speak French first, as it ticks off another item on the list.

It’s not long before they both realize that the connection between them is too special to be “just friends” — but aren’t you just asking for heartbreak when you know a relationship has an expiration date?

I loved the turn the couple’s relationship took once they realized that their time was running out. I loved how Griffin struggled with his feelings for Joy and his promise to his brother. And most of all, I loved the swoon-worthy moment he went back to get his girl upon realizing that true love cured his wanderlust. This book was an absolute delight, and one that I will keep on my re-read list. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

“Wanderlust is the love story to end all! I laughed, cried, dreamed, and hoped. To say I was transfixed by this story is to underrate its power. I am a romantic at heart and this book spoke to me like no other.”
-Gloria Herrera for As You Wish Reviews





“Packed with flirty banter, a slow-building, yet scorching hot romance, and characters that are enchanting, voracious, and delightfully unreserved, Wanderlust is a hopelessly romantic, heart-meltingly sweet love story from Lauren Blakely.”
-Yvette for Nose Stuck in a Book

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Sinner, by Sierra Simone


SINNER by Sierra Simone

Release Date: March 15th

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Designer: Letitia Hasser from RBA Designs



















Add to Goodreads:







I’m not a good man, and I’ve never pretended to be. I don’t believe in goodness or God or any happy ending that isn’t paid for in advance.

What do I believe in? Money. Sex. Macallan 18.

They have words for men like me—playboy. Womanizer. Skirt chaser.

My brother used to be a priest, and he only has one word for me.



***Sinner is a standalone companion to Priest about Father Bell’s brother Sean. You do not have to read Priest or Midnight Mass to read Sinner.***






Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Pray for us sinners, indeed.

Sinner is a standalone story within Sierra Simone’s Priest series. I loved Priest. I loved everything about Father Tyler Bell and Poppy, their love affair and the complications that arose for Tyler both personally and professionally, the journey it led him on and the self-reflection that eventually allowed him to make peace with who he thought he was and the person he became once Poppy entered his life. Priest has been my benchmark for forbidden romances, and SIERRA DOES IT AGAIN!

For as dirty and rough as Tyler could be, his older brother, Sean, is on a whole other level of depravity. While the death of their sister led Tyler to become a priest, it had the opposite affect on Sean, who completely turned his back on his faith. But then Sean is reacquainted with his best friend’s little sister, Zenny, fifteen years younger than him, whom he hasn’t seen in years and is about to become a postulant. When Zenny propositions Sean to teach her the ins and outs of sex, all that she’d be leaving behind, during her last four weeks before she takes her vows, suddenly, Sean (who never cares about any of the strippers or socialites he sleeps with) is faced with a crisis of conscience.

And so begins their torrid, nasty, filthy, depraved sexual affair, as Sean introduces innocent Zenny to all sorts of carnal depravity. (There are some scenes in Sinner that seriously rival Tyler and Poppy’s altar sex in Priest. Like what they do at the kitchen sink.)

The story is told through Sean’s POV, so while Zenny is experiencing her own personal sexual revolution, Sean goes through one hell of an emotional journey as he begins seeing in a new, different light things he long thought he’d come to terms with. At the same time that Sean is discovering, much to his surprise, that he’s falling in love for the first time in his life, the Bells are going through yet another family trauma, and it all makes Sean question the choices he’s made and what he’s thus far believed.

“I am acutely aware that she’ll never be mine. She’ll always be God’s.”

“The irony of a sinner loving a nun.”

For as full of heat that Sinner is, it is also so full of heart. I felt all of the heartache that Sean felt over the situation with Zenny. It is a thought-provoking romance on so many levels, and it kept me up into the wee hours of the morning, long after I’d finished reading, thinking about this couple’s journey. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Where We Ended, by Nora Flite

Title: Where We Ended
Series: Where We Began Duet #2

Author: Nora Flite

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 20, 2018




Laiken has finally heard the dark rumors about me.

Everyone who hears runs away. But she can’t.

She’s trapped here, in my house—with me.

Each minute we’re together I’m driven to swallow her up. To see if the
electricity that moves between us will grow or vanish. I thought we were
falling in love.

Now, I’m sure that she hates my very existence.

But when she glares at me… I see a flicker of desire in her blue eyes.

The way she fixates on my mouth reminds me of how filthy we’ve been.

How filthy we could be.

My father has warned me to stay away from her. He knows she’s become my

All my life, I just wanted to be the perfect soldier for him.

To do everything he asked so he’d be proud.

I thought I could.

She’s doing her best to prove me wrong.


Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Where We Ended is the conclusion of the Where We Began duet and is not a standalone! The story picks up exactly where the other left off, and this book explores more of Dominic’s history. Will Laiken be able to forgive Dominic for his actions?

This story explores more of Dominic’s side of things, as he has more chapters in his POV than he had in the first book. But like I felt with the first one, I just felt that something was missing. Parts of the story were all over the place, and I didn’t feel that the throughline remained for this series from start to finish.

However, Laiken and Dominic certainly have a lot of chemistry, which is kind of what saved this story for me. Overall, I found it just to be okay. I finished the book with too many unanswered questions to have felt like I loved this tale. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

He’s my most delicious secret.

The hot Suit I had a one-night stand with one evening.

But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of women’s fiction.

Jodi went on to self-publish the second book in the trilogy, Beneath This Man in Jan 2013, just before Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, picked up the popular trilogy and the unknown Jodi.

She went on to write The One Night Trilogy with the delectable and mysterious Miller Hart, and stole the hearts of her readers once again. Her first stand-alone novel, THE PROTECTOR, released in September 2016 and has since been nominated for a Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award. Jodi’s next stand-alone novel. THE FORBIDDEN, is set for release in August 2017.

All seven of her published novels have hit the New York Times best sellers list – as well as the Sunday Times list and various international best seller lists. Her work is now published in over 24 languages across the world.

Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle.
