Feasted On: Harmony Homecomings Series, Book 3

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Paperback - Pages: 354; Kindle Edition - File Size: 1400 KB | Expected Release Date: December 6, 2016 | Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca | Obtained: NetGalley

"Sweet Southern Bad Boy" [Harmony Homecomings Series, Book 3] by Michele Summers

Author's Book Description : Katie McKnight loves her job. Not really. But Katie loves her dad and this job means everything to him. Which is why she's scouting for the perfect house to film a mini-series…and that house happens to be in Harmony, NC. Now if only Katie can convince the grouchy, disheveled but totally hunky owner his home is perfect for the next teen craze, she’ll be in business.

​Bestselling author, Vance Kerner has lost his mind along with his loafers and the notes to his next novel, under dirty dishes in his kitchen. Since babysitting his brother’s three kids, Vance hasn’t found a moments peace. So when California Katie knocks on his door, Vance doesn’t stop to ask questions. He simply yanks her inside and puts her in charge.

​Katie agrees to babysit, if Vance allows her film crew access to his property. Vance agrees to keep an open mind as long as he gets the peace he needs to write.

​But having Katie underfoot is anything but peaceful. And Vance is finding less and less time to write and more and more time to watch Katie weave a lovely spell on all the Kerners...especially him.

Can these two opposites find a common ground and the love they both deserve?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! Katie (Kathryn) has been called a free-spirit most of her life, though the term wasn’t one of endearment and it was something she always tried to curb because of her parents domineering ways. Therefore, when she meets Vance it is under the guise of trying to have him sign a contract so she’ll have the rights to use his house and land in one of her father’s upcoming movie productions as an attempt to get into good light with her Dad. Yet what seems so simple at first, turns into controlled chaos when Vance and Katie get into another arrangement all together. Now with their lives pushed together, they find shared common ground, shared passions, but what will happen with them once their deadline arrives and their arrangement ends? Will they find that being together is truly where their hearts are at, or is moving on best for the both of them?

An unexpected delight that knocked me out of left field. I had been hearing about this novel non-stop for a while, and because I really enjoyed Ms. Summers’ "Not So New In Town" (Book 2), I was excited to check this novel out too. Yet though it had the charming dynamic, I anticipated from a Ms. Summers novel I was surprised when the plot hits you sideways and takes you on a ride that you didn’t foresee coming. All in all, after the paced picked up after the beginning, I became enchanted with this story of “women power” and having Katie find that true family is one who cares for you no matter what, even if they aren’t blood related.

Although I say all of that, Pirate Man and California Cupcake, i.e. Vance and Katie REALLY steal the show. It’s not just their instant attraction or the way they ARE the main characters, I mean they both have a vivacious quality about them they was compelling to read about; even during times when I struggled reading through parts. In addition, I liked how both Vance and Katie turned around their circumstances, which from my perspective made them both very powerful characters. It doesn’t hurt that they are just perfect for one another … I mean … come on. 😉

What also sealed the deal for this novel, for me, was being back in Harmony, North Carolina. It has a crazy cast of characters, yes, but you cannot help but wish you could find a way to visit all of them too. PLUS, the updates on the previous characters were fun too!

Overall, I recommend this novel to those who are fans of the Harmony Homecomings Series, fans of Ms. Summers, and/or are looking for a quirky contemporary romance!

Vance got busy scribbling his information on a piece of scrap paper. "I'm actually pretty good with kids," she said, smiling, hoping to reassure him---and herself---as he handed her the paper. "You, on the other hand, have the handwriting of a psychopath," she murmured, trying to make out his chicken scratch. "Is that a five or an eight?" ~ within Chapter 1
Katie held her breath, wondering how she'd ended up here. And when she meant here, she meant inside this beautiful but oh-so-masculine bedroom with Harmony's hottie playboy standing so close she only had to sway a half inch and her back would be touching his well-defined front. Holy cliffhanger. ~ within Chapter 6

Feasted On: Hearts of Metal Series, Book 2

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Paperback - Pages: 194; Kindle Edition - File Size: 2983 KB | Expected Release Date: May 18, 2016 | Publisher: Boroughs Publishing Group | Obtained: Brooklyn Ann

"With Vengeance" [Hearts of Metal Series, Book 2] by Brooklyn Ann

Author's Book Description : SHE MEANS BUSINESS

Twenty-three year old Katana James can shred on the guitar. Not that anyone would know, as she’s spent most of her time working on a popular news and gossip website for Heavy Metal fans since her own band broke up. But her dreams are in reach when she gets an audition to play with her favorite band, Bleeding Vengeance. Kat won’t let her gender, her anxiety disorder, or even the pranks of a malicious stalker stand in her way. The only thing to threaten her focus? A growing fascination with the group’s brilliant, mysterious bass player.

HE OFFERS PLEASURE

Klement Burke has always been the heart, soul and brain of Bleeding Vengeance. He’s the kind of rock star who stays in the shadows, a perfectionist more interested in satisfying his brain than other parts of his body. Until he auditions Katana James. At first it seemed a perfect idea, as he’s been aware of her talent for some time. But meeting her in the flesh ignites thoughts far from professional. Despite the conflict of work, the odds against her falling for a geek like him, and the secret he’s been hiding, his heart, body and soul now belong to Kat.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Katana's (Kat) dreams are about to come true ... she just got the position to be the lead guitarist in her fave metal rock band. However, to prove herself, the band agrees to have her only be with them to record their latest record. Soon she proves herself to them while charming the pants off Klement (Klem), the lead bassist and the "band manager." Yet, with an ex and past fears trying to keep them apart, can Kat and Klement find a way to stick together through it all?

It’s one sweet erotic rockstar romance intrigued me from the beginning. Kat and Klement's attraction and chemistry fly off the pages. In addition, their relationship hooked me from the start and made me more interested in this series too.

I recommend the novel to those who are fans of Ms. Brooklyn Ann and/or to those looking for a ROCKIN'-ly sweet rockstar romance!

Blog Tour - Sweet Southern Bad Boy by Michele Summers | Interview, Spreading the Word, & Novel Giveaway

Today I'm showing off Michele Summers' "Sweet Southern Bad Boy," which is her recently released novel, the THIRD novel in her Harmony Homecomings Series, and the novel I recently interviewed her about!

ALSO -- Be sure to check out the Gleam contest at the bottom of this post to be able to sign up for this blog tour's GIVEAWAY!! [Promotion for this post and its Giveaway will run from December 5 - 26, 2016]



My Q&A with Michele Summers :

Jess : What sparked the idea for "Sweet Southern Bad Boy?"

Michele : I think it first started with the kids, because I’d been dealing a lot with my own active kids and my sister’s five boys. And I thought it’d be funny to see how two people with no children handle the situation.

Jess : Which of your characters would you invite or not invite to dinner?

Michele : I’d most likely invite Bertie from "Find My Way Home" to dinner because we’re both interior designers and collector of great shoes; we’d have lots to talk about. And I like her eclectic style…reminds me a lot of me! 😉 And I’d probably not invite Lucy from "Not So New In Town" because she’d get me in tons of trouble eating junk food! I wouldn’t be able to resist Cheetos and M&M’s, some of her favorites.

Jess : Which comes first for me the character’s story or the idea for the novel?

Michele : Hmmm, I think character’s story comes first. Some wacky idea will hit me about a personality quirk or a “what if” scenario and I’ll run with it and build a story around that character.

Jess : Are there any differences and/or similarities between Vance from "Sweet Southern Bad Boy" and Brogan from "Not So New In Town?"

Michele : Both are very competitive and athletic. Both have strong personalities and both played high school football together and remained close friends. Brogan was a nicer more approachable guy in high school whereas Vance was a bit on the wild side. And Brogan figured out a way to make a living with his healthy lifestyle while Vance became a writer to right some wrongs from his past.

Jess : Favorite part to write in a novel...

Michele : Hands down: the dialogue. I love to write the banter between the Hero and the Heroine or even between the best friends. If it were up to me, my books would be nothing but running dialogue with no reference to setting, time or place.

Jess : Favorite secondary characters...

Michele : My top two favorite secondary characters are Dottie Duncan, the meddling wealthy owner of the Toot-N-Tell, because she’s always butting in everyone’s business with her no-nonsense approach. She tells it like it is. And then I’d have to say Clancy Perry, the redneck tree trimmer who’s always trying to horn in and steal the heroines out from under the heroes’ noses. He was just so darn fun to write.

Jess : How many books have you written?

Michele : I’ve written four books and have to say SSBB is my all-time favorite. I still think about Vance and Katie. I loved their chemistry and the situation of taking care of those kids. They tugged at my heartstrings and made me laugh at the same time.

Jess : And other projects in the works?

Michele : Yes, I’m working on a fun series set in Miami where I lived for over 20 years. It’s centered around three brothers, all athletes in different stages of their careers and how they find love in women who are basically their complete opposites.

Jess : Favorite aspect of the holidays:

Michele : My favorite part of the holidays is time off. I love the few days before and after when everything is already prepared…or not, where we all sit around and enjoy each other’s company. Time off from work and obligations. It’s the only time I actually slow down and rest.

Jess : Cartoon character that represents your personal philosophy?

Michele : Okay, I’m not sure if this counts, but I’d have to say Belle from Beauty and the Beast, because it’s my favorite Disney fairy tale and because she was smart and did the right thing. And she ended up with the prince in the end! Perfect.

Jess : If someone wrote a biography about me, what would the title be?

Michele : "Finding Humor…amongst the crazies!"

Since babysitting his brother’s three kids, he hasn’t found a moments peace. So when California Katie knocks on his door, Vance doesn’t ask questions. He simply yanks her inside and puts her in charge.

    Katie agrees to babysit, if Vance allows the film crew access to his property. Vance agrees to keep an open mind as long as he gets the peace he needs to write.

    But having Katie underfoot is anything but peaceful. And Vance is finding less and less time to write and more and more time to watch Katie weave a lovely spell on all the Kerners...especially him.

    Can these two opposites find a common ground and the love they both deserve?

Presently she resides in NC where she grew up with her family, but still misses sunny South Florida, swaying palm trees and wearing open-toed shoes…everyday!
