Release Week Blitz: Fall with Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout


We are so excited to bring you the Release Week Blitz for Jennifer L. Armentrout's, also known as J. Lynn’s, FALL WITH ME!! FALL WITH ME is a New Adult Contemporary Romance and is a part of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Wait For You series, published by Avon Romance. We love this series and can't wait to start reading Roxy and Reece's story! 


Fall With me


Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.

Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.

But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.

 Excerpt

Someone—was it Melvin?—catcalled as Reece led me down the hall, and my cheeks flushed. “Okay, heman, I can walk all by my little self.”
He cast a look over his shoulder at me as he opened the office door. “I’m sure you can.”
Then he pulled me inside.
My gaze flipped to the roses—the roses!—but before I could say a word, he closed the door and my back was pressed against it, his hands planted on either side of my head and his face right in mine. Like right there, within kissing distance.
Wow.
“So, I was at my father’s place in New Jersey most of the day, and you know, he lives out near the Pine Barrens, so service is shit.”
I nodded even though I really wasn’t processing what he was saying as I was too busy staring at his mouth. Those lips, fuller on the bottom, drove me to distraction.
“I pull out of his driveway and I have all these messages from Dennis,” he continued, and I finally caught on to what he was talking about. “I honestly thought he was messing with me at first.”
I cringed. “He . . . um, he wasn’t.”
He shot me a bland look. “That much I figured out.” His hands slid on the door, stopping just shy of touching my shoulders. “What did he do to you?”
“What?” I blinked.
“What did that bastard do to make you throw a book through his windshield?”
Oh. Oh. My heart was now wiggling along with my stomach. “He really didn’t do anything. I just lost my cool. He wanted to talk to me, and I didn’t want to talk to him.”
“You don’t have to talk to him.”
“That’s what Dennis said, but I shouldn’t have damaged his car.”
A muscle flexed along his right jaw. “That’s true.” He shook his head. “Damn, Roxy, can’t say I’m surprised.”
My brows flew up. “You’re not?”
He laughed under his breath. “Babe, you’ve always had a hell of a temper on you.”
Ah, that was kind of true. “Is that a good thing or a bad thing?”
Reece cocked his head to the side. “A sexy thing, but vandalism and destruction of property doesn’t look good on you, sweets.”
“No. It doesn’t match my manicure.” I raised my hands, flashing him the blue nails.
He laughed again and then he sobered up, just like that. Cop Face was on, and yeah . . . the low coiling in my stomach told me I found Cop Face arousing. “You’re lucky. He could’ve pressed charges, and this conversation would be going in a whole different direction.”
My own half smile slipped off my face. “I know. It’s . . . I was just with Charlie, and he’s . . .” Unable to continue, I forced a casual shrug I didn’t feel. “What are you going to do with me?”
His lips parted as his chest rose with a deep breath, then his gaze dropped to my mouth, and his expression tightened. He looked . . . he looked hungry. “I have lots of ideas.”

Liars, Inc. Blog Tour: Guest Post + Giveaway


Hi guys! Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes. I really enjoyed reading this book, and I'm so glad to be a part of this super cool tour. Check out the FBI character profile below, and follow along with the rest of the tour! You can find the schedule here. Thanks to Jean at Book Nerd Tours for organizing this. Don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end!


For fans of Gone Girl, I Hunt Killers, and TV's How to Get Away with Murder.


Max Cantrell has never been a big fan of the truth, so when the opportunity arises to sell forged permission slips and cover stories to his classmates, it sounds like a good way to make a little money and liven up a boring senior year. With the help of his friends Preston and Parvati, Max starts Liars, Inc. Suddenly everybody needs something and the cash starts pouring in. Who knew lying could be so lucrative?

When Preston wants his own cover story to go visit a girl he met online, Max doesn’t think twice about hooking him up. Until Preston never comes home. Then the evidence starts to pile up—terrifying clues that lead the cops to Preston’s body. Terrifying clues that point to Max as the murderer.

Can Max find the real killer before he goes to prison for a crime he didn’t commit? In a story that Kirkus Reviews called "Captivating to the very end," Paula Stokes starts with one single white lie and weaves a twisted tale that will have readers guessing until the explosive final chapters.




Check out my review of Liars, Inc. HERE!

In My Mailbox #40


In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren which allows us to share the books we’ve bought, borrowed and received.

I know I haven't been keeping up with the blog at all recently :( But hopefully I'll catch up this summer after exams end! Anyway, here's the stuff I've got since my last IMM.

For Review



Get Dirty by Gretchen McNeil*
Crash by Eve Silver*
Collide by Melissa West
Unleashed by Sophie Jordan^
All That Burns by Ryan Graudin^
The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer^
Mania by J.R. Johansson

*ARCs from Edelweiss (thanks HarperCollins!)
^ARCs sent by HarperCollins International (thanks Megan!)†ARC from NetGalley (thanks Flux!)

Well! I'm super excited to read Get Dirty and Crash, considering I adore both these series. Crash is the final book of the trilogy, so I'm kinda scared for that as well. I was on the blog tour for Collide, and I can say that I loved how Melissa West ended the series! Sci-fi fans have got to read this one.

Megan from HC International sent me a few ARCs (to my Singapore address though, so I will only get to read them in May when I go back home). I loved Uninvited, but I'm scared to read Unleashed after some reviews I read. I'm afraid I won't like it! I've read All That Burns already from Edelweiss, and I found it pretty good. Never heard of The Cemetery Boys, hopefully that's an interesting one. And I just got approved for Mania, the third book in the Night Walkers series. I can't wait for this one!

So yeah, this is my haul. Realistically I won't get to read any of these until summer break, because I still have a few spring eARCs I need to read and review. But I'm glad I got these! So what have you guys got this week? Anything in common with my haul?
