Tie Me Down by Michelle Hazen – Blog Tour Review, Excerpt and Giveaway

 

 

Readers if you haven’t read Playing the Pauses (read my review and thoughts here ) I highly recommend reading that first. Tie Me Down by Michelle Hazen is what happens after the last page in that book.

It’s time to see how Danny and Kate are now, will they really have their happy-ever-after? It’s an adventure that shows what we really need isn’t always what we get. Further more, it isn’t always how we planned or what those in our life expect. However, if we don’t ask, then how can we get it? We deserve everything we want and shouldn’t stop until we have it.

Danny O’Neil and Kate have it all, dream jobs, hot chemistry, and they both live hard and play harder. Will their love survive the new challenges with Kate’s job? Will Danny find a way to communicate his feelings when things take an unexpected turn?

Living the life of a rock star has its challenges and managing one requires control, order, and the ability to put others before oneself. Sometimes. Will Kate finally risk it all to save the one thing she can’t live without? Is Danny really ok with all of Kate’s  traveling despite his frequent gifts?

Don’t miss the conclusion – it’s full of heart squeezing moments, life changing decisions and the creative expression we discovered when we saw Danny and Kate last. I have a new appreciation for art and am feeling inspired.

I received this ARC from Barclay for a fair and honest review. I give this book three flames of heat. Spicy  – Best enjoyed with your favorite iced-beverage, a cozy chair, and maybe a fan.

 

 From the Author **This is a sequel to Playing the Pauses, not a standalone. However, you don’t have to read the rest of the series to understand these two.**

TIE ME DOWN Excerpt

Copyright © 2018 Michelle Hazen

 In my purse, a text message waits on my phone, but I don’t check it.

My assistant needs more supervision than I can afford to give him, the production manager’s blood pressure could really use me running interference between him and the neurotic pyrotechnics specialist, and I should ride the bus tonight to try to repair my working relationship with the backup dancers. I have a hundred places to be and the only one I want to inhabit is Danny’s apartment, in his beautiful silence that always stretches to make me a comfortable part of it.

It’s enough to make me wish Danny said I love you. He thinks it’s absurd to repeat a sentiment I already know is true, but in moments like these where I’m falling a little short in every area of my life, I could really use the simple comfort of those three words. I pull out my phone to check his text, even though I know it won’t say what I need it to.

Sure enough, the screen doesn’t fill with words. Instead, it’s a picture.

I squint in the dim backstage lights, turning up the brightness until I can make out a sketch in the spare, soft lines of his characteristic charcoal.

It’s of me, asleep with my hair pooled beneath my relaxed cheek. The lines of my face are graceful, more beautiful than they ever look in the mirror. The care with which he constructed my image just from memory makes me catch my breath, tears burning at the corners of my eyes.

He misses me. And this is the only way he can say it.

Jock Row (A Jock Hard Novel) by Sara Ney – Review

Jock Row (A Jock Hard Novel) by Sara Ney – Review

Jock Row (A Jock Hard Novel) by Sara Ney is a must read, and officially one that I plan to re-read. As I have sooo many new book adventures waiting, that’s got to tell you all you need to know. Seriously though, if you’re looking for a captivating and well written friends-to-lovers story, this is for you.

If you’ve read Sara’s Douchebag series, this is even better. Wait, how can that be? Sara has surpassed my expectations and I’ve fallen in love all over with her world. It’s time to meet Scarlett, the woman who is known around campus for blocking all the Jocks from any action. I. Love. This. In one swift moment she will be banished from any and all parties. Can a woman who has one tiny secret rise about the rumors and defy those who stand in her way?

Ahhh….let the games begin. One of the things I love about Scarlett is that the guys who have deemed her a nuisance, have no clue who she is. What would you do if you were banished? There is something seriously sexy about a character who isn’t intimidated by what other people think. There is only one problem for Scarlett, the very man whose sole job is to keep her out is the one who will do his best to melt her heart. It’s time to get your heart squeezed. Who falls first? Watch this love ignite and burn. Hold onto your e-readers, it might spontaneously combust!

“Rowdy” Wade is the Captain of the Baseball team and the one sent to babysit the party buster who won’t leave his teammates alone. What will he do when he finds himself attracted to this woman? Most women are running to their parties with one goal.  Scarlett will surprise Rowdy and the result will leave him chasing her.

Scarlett an ease in her ability to comfortably talk with Rowdy about almost anything, and it’s pure power. I love the natural flow of their conversations and how natural the growth is between them. It’s sweet, sexy, and the unique and witty way that Sara draws them closer, it’s fabulous. Wanna play a game 😉 ?

This story is authentic in the way to characters develop their relationship, build their trust, and fall in love. There is a raw and natural tenderness to the dialogue, the emotions between Scarlett and Rowdy will leave you giddy, and you’ll finish the book wishing there was more. It’s Real. It’s awkward. It’s full of laugh-out-loud moments. It’s perfect! Sara has outdone herself!

Everyone deserves a Rowdy in their life. It’s time to break down the stereotypes and discover that love has no boundaries.
I can’t wait to read the next installment. Please tell me there is more and I don’t have to wait too long! This Jock rocks!

I give this book four flames of heat. It’s Scorchin – Caution, may lead to unexpected need to turn on the A/C.

I received this ARC from the author for a fair and honest review. I can’t wait to purchase a few copies for gifts! You can get your copy here!
