RELEASE DAY: The Plan by Katie Ashley

THE PLAN by Katie Ashley


For Jenny O’Malley, the plan was supposed to be easy. Become the surrogate for her friends, Connor and Jeff, deliver their healthy baby, and earn some money towards her student loans. But as the saying goes, the best-laid plans often go awry. Especially when you’re looking at the prospect of not getting laid for a long, long time.

With T-Minus two weeks to insemination, Jenny decides to take her friend, Casey’s, suggestion to have one wild fling before she’s saddled with heartburn and stretchmarks. When a tall, dark and handsome man swaggers into the bar where she works in skin-tight jeans, cowboy boots, and a Stetson, Jenny knows he is the one. After a scorching night of banging boots until dawn, Jenny is a little sad to see her Cowboy in Shining Armor leave.

When he reenters her life a few weeks later, she never could have imagined a positive sign could be such a negative.

Add THE PLAN to Goodreads

 I was really curious about The Plan. From the first time I read the synopsis, I was excited. This is quite the different concept. This really shows you how life can take your plan and laugh at you. The characters in this book are fantastic and I just want to be all of their friends! Jenny is a wonderful friend. Katie Ashley writes a super quick read, I flew through the pages. Ms. Ashley creates a steamy, hot novella. It was a light read with very little angst. I’d totally recommend it and plan to looking to see if there is previous books or more coming up.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

TOUR: Welcome to the Dark Side by Giana Darling

Title: Welcome to the Dark Side
Series: The Fallen Men Series #2
Author: Giana Darling
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: April 20, 2018

I was a good girl.

I ate my vegetables, volunteered at the local autism centre and sat in the front pew of church every Sunday.

Then, I got cancer.

What the hell kind of reward was that for a boring life well lived?

I was a seventeen-year-old paradigm of virtue and I was tired of it.

So, when I finally ran into the man I'd been writing to since he saved my life as a little girl and he offered to show me the dark side of life before I left it for good, I said yes.

Only, I didn't know that Zeus Garro was the President of The Fallen MC and when you made a deal with a man who is worse than the devil, there was no going back...

This is Daddy Zeus Garro's story from Lessons In Corruption. A standalone in The Fallen Men Series.

This cover completely encompasses this book so very much! I look at this and seriously wonder how she lucked out and got Jason Momoa to pose for her cover. Y’all see him, right?!? I mean, goodness gracious!!I love Giana Darling’s writing in Welcome to the Dark Side. This is the BEST Darling book I have read! Really, I just loved it!!

WttDS has everything I love in a romance book, a strong alpha male that’s the president of a MC! I love MC stories. I feel like Buddy the Elf here.... I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU (said while jumping up and down a screaming). Zeus, I mean, y’all know with this name alone that this man is going to be a powerhouse, totally a larger than life character.

Lou is completely Zeus’s opposite. She’s the daughter of the mayor and granddaughter of a preacher... she is expected to behave and be a certain way. She’s been fighting her urges for way too long. Zeus brings out so much of her true self and the life she long’s for. Oh, did I mention that Zeus is nearly 20 years older than her? Age is just a number when everything is pulling them together.

Oh Ms. Darling sure excels at making my heart run leaps and bounds. I felt so many emotions throughout this book. Zeus, she wrote an alpha male character that just can’t be rivaled. I’m just in awe of how fierce and nasty he is... but his heart and love for everyone he holds dear will endear you. You’ll walk on the dark side for Zeus. Lou won’t be able to help herself. Hold on during this ride... Darling is taking you all over the place, and while you might struggle a bit, the ride is so worth it.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
