Blog Tour: Aleatha Romig's " Fidelity (Infidelity # 5)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour for Aleatha Romig's " Fidelity (Infidelity # 5)." 

Amazon.com:   http://amzn.to/2iiWQEI
Amazon UK:    http://amzn.to/2eXLAvN

Synopsis:

She thought she could save those she loved.
He thought he could save her.
They'll both learn the truth.

FIDELITY, the dramatic conclusion to the epic five-novel series INFIDELITY, following Lennox "Nox" Demetri, Alexandria "Charli" Collins, the Montagues, Demetris, Fitzgeralds, and Spencers is finally here.

When the vows are complete and the dust settles, who will be left standing?

No one is safe, and no alliance is above suspicion in the much-anticipated finale to this hot romantic-suspense saga. Our heroine has survived betrayal, cunning, deception, and entrapment…what will happen when she’s faced with fidelity? 

Infidelity, it isn't what you think.

Review: Surj 

Wow, what a way to finish a series Aleatha Romig. "Fidelity" is the final book in the "Infidelity" series and it really was the icing on the cake for what had been an amazing, captivating, enthralling and often crazy ride for our leading characters Nox and Alexandria. This book was one I couldn't wait to get my mitts on, mainly because of the cliff hanger we had given at the end of "Entrapment." I never saw it coming and I couldn't wait to see how the whole situation would unfold. What I did know was that Aleatha would not fail me. I knew that however things turned out, whichever turn the story took would be the right one for all those involved. And I was right. 


His touch was the music that rocked my world. i was his instrument. 
Together our song filled the air. 

This conclusion to Nox and Alex's story had everything you would want from a final instalment in a series and more. Every question that had cropped up throughout the previous four books was answered. Every twist, every turn and every curveball that was thrown in slotted seamlessly into the storyline and felt right. The added mystery, suspense and "who done it" element only heightened my enjoyment of the book. Nothing felt over the top or exaggerated, after all  this was the lifestyle of the rich and famous where anything and everything was a possibility!!! Like I said in my previous reviews for the series, think along the lines of those 80's soaps like "Dallas" and "Dynasty" and you won't be far wrong. 

I loved getting all the juicy bits for some of the sub plots and I just adored the glimpses into the pasts of so many of the characters I had grown to know and love over the course of this series. There were those characters for whom my love continued to grow and of course there were those characters for whom my hate was continuously fuelled by their actions and behaviours. 


"Mr Demetri, what did you just call her?"
"Princess, but in all honesty, she's my queen." 

Nox was just the perfect batman. I loved his unconditional love for his princess and how he would walk to the ends of the earth to ensure her safety. Equally I loved Alex and the fact that she wasn't a damsel in distress. She was a fighter and would do everything in her power to protect those she loved. 

"Fidelity" is one of those books you definitely need to take your time reading. There was a lot of information given and if you try to rush or skim, the likelihood is you will miss something vital. So yup, savour every page and relish in the storyline as it reaches it's ending. 


Alexandria was my drug and I would never let her go.

Welldone Aleatha on such a fantastic series with "Infidelity." I really couldn't recommend it enough. If you want drama and action, mystery and suspense and a storyline that will have you salivating as you turn the pages, this is definitely for you. 

I rated "Fidelity" ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Review: Helena Hunting's "Pucked Under (Pucked #4.5)."


Synopsis

Randy Ballistic and Lily LeBlanc are head-over-heels, bed-breakingly, screaming orgasmically in love. But even they have their challenges, mostly outside of the bedroom. 

With the off-season coming to a close and the boys gearing up for training camp, one more weekend of fun is the perfect way to welcome the new season. 

The entire crew piles into vehicles and drives to Alex and Violet’s Chicago cottage for a few days of relaxation—and hopefully a chance for Randy to shake the anxiety that’s been plaguing him. 

Accidental wardrobe malfunctions, typical Violet inspired overshares, and a whole lot of private time round out the perfect weekend getaway.

But the moment they return to the city all of Randy’s angst resurfaces with the arrival of a surprise houseguest.

Review-Jo

I have loved this series so far and Randy and Lily are my favourite couple, so I couldn't wait to start reading this book to catch up with them. I was not disappointed with "Pucked Under." Helena Hunting has delivered another story that was filled to the brim with everything that I have come to expect from this series. Randy and Lily's continuing story was hilariously fun, sexy and swoony. A novel with these elements is sure to put a smile on your face. If you have been following this series, don't miss this one out. 

"Loving you is the best choice I ever made."

"Pucked Under" was mainly focused on Lily and Randy and there ongoing relationship. The pair remained to be as funny and amusing as ever. I just love this couple together. Randy had a side to him like most men, all about the sex with a fear of the future and any commitments that might bring, but he also showed a softer and more sensitive side that melted my heart. Randy was also surprisingly good with the romance and made the best boyfriend materiel for Lily. Randy charmed me with every turn of the page. Lily made the perfect match for Randy, understanding his vulnerabilities and his crazy side too. Lily loved everything about Randy and together they were able to maintain their fun-packed lives together. 

"You can't hear it?"
"Hear What"
"It's the sound of my cock calling for your pussy."

As well as Lily and Randy, this book also featured all of the other "Pucked" couples with a very important event happening for one of them. I enjoyed having the chance to check in with the gang that have become as familiar as good friends to me. I'm already excited for the next instalment in the series and another opportunity to be in their lives again. 

"There is no end to my love for this man. Randy's my happily ever after." 

"Pucked Under" gets 4 hearts from me.

A.Merdith Walters "One Day Soon" made our list because: 
This was a book I quite literally inhaled in one day, only coming up for air when I absolutely had to. It had all the hallmarks of a signature A Meredith Walters book and if you as big a fan of this author as I am, you'll know exactly what I mean by that.  Yoss and Imi's story was unpredictable and unconventional. It was thought provoking and it was poignant. I don't think my heart has ever hurt so much when reading a book.

Keith Stuart's "A Boy made of Blocks" was one of our favourites because: 
I'm a romance reader through and through and that is really all I've read for the last three years. However, when I read the synopsis for "A Boy made of Blocks," there was just something about Alex's story that said "Read me. You won't be disappointed" and I was right. This book was different but so  brilliant. It was captivating, addictive, poignant and absolutely life affirming.

Why Emma Scott's "Full Tilt (Full Tilt #1)" was a standout read: 
Throughout this wondrous story so many things shone through- Joy, happiness, courage, hope, trust but above all else there was love. Beautiful, awe-inspiring, made-my-heart-soar love. "Full Tilt" is a novel that is not to be missed and I implore you to add it to your TBR's today.

"Unseen Messages" was a powerful, moving, heart wrenching story that was told with such passion and vigour, that it was difficult not to be affected by what I was reading.

Blog Tour: Keith Stuart's "A Boy made of Blocks."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour for Keith Stuart's "A Boy made of Blocks."

Amazon.com:   http://amzn.to/2blydDG
Amazon UK:    http://amzn.to/2biPbsB

Synopsis:

In the tradition of Nick Hornby and David Nicholls comes a warm and tender novel in which a father and his autistic son connect over the game of Minecraft.

Alex loves his family, and yet he struggles to connect with his eight-year-old autistic son, Sam. The strain has pushed his marriage to the breaking point. So Alex moves in with his merrily irresponsible best friend on the world’s most uncomfortable blow-up bed.

As Alex navigates single life, long-buried family secrets, and part-time fatherhood, his son begins playing Minecraft. Sam’s imagination blossoms and the game opens up a whole new world for father and son to share. Together, they discover that sometimes life must fall apart before you can build a better one.

Inspired by the author’s own relationship with his autistic son, A Boy Made of Blocks is a tear-jerking, funny, and, most, of all true-to-life novel about the power of difference and one very special little boy.

Review: Surj 

I'm a romance reader through and through and that is really all I've read for the last three years. However, when I read the synopsis for "A Boy made of Blocks," there was just something about Alex's story that said "Read me. You won't be disappointed" and I was right. This book was different but so  brilliant. It was captivating, addictive, poignant and absolutely life affirming. 

I'm so tired of feeling like this- helpless, directionless, buffeted from one seemingness 
unnavigable crisis to another, like a boat lost way out at sea. 

Told from Alex's POV, I loved the way his story was brought to life. It was honest, realistic and very much believable. Alex did not go easy on himself when recounting his journey to connect with his son and more often than not he did come across as quite the villain. I saw every ugly, tarnished side to him and so many times I could have kicked him in the shins for shirking his responsibilities as a parent. There were even a few moments where he made me cry either with some of his actions or with what came out of his mouth.  However, the more I got to know his character, the more I began to understand. Alex had events from his past that he needed to come to terms with and couple that with the pressures of parenthood and the added challenges of having an autistic child, and I think somewhere along the line he just lost himself. It doesn't make his behaviour right but it did help me understand the reasons why he was the way he was. 

"Have some of this lemon cake, it's lovely, and also, tell me more about
your emotionally apocalyptic disintegration of your nine year marriage." 

"A Boy made of blocks" was one of those books that pulled so many emotions from me. From Alex's very blunt and very dry sense of humour that had me in hysterics to the anger and frustration I felt when he said the wrong thing. Then of course there was little "Sam" who stole a little piece of my heart the moment I met him. His character had my heart breaking, he had me laughing and he even had me crying (again). 

Sam was a beautiful, courageous little boy trying to live in a world that just seemed so alien to him, and with no one there to really understand his needs and wants, there was this overwhelming sense of  loneliness that seemed to cloak him. But could one game really change everything? Could "Minecraft" bring a father and his son closer? Could it put a family back together? I wasn't sure. 

But the darkness always comes, whatever you do. 
Eventually you have to turn around and face it. 

I loved the growth in Sam's character in this book.  I'm not a gamer and I have no clue about "Minecraft"  but I didn't need to. Instead I allowed Alex and Sam to transport me into their fantasy world where I got lost in make belief right alongside each of them. The bond that was formed because of one simple game and the changes I witnessed in Sam as a result of this was just so heart warming and touching and honestly, that made me cry even more tears (of the happy kind this time thank god!!! lol). 

"A Boy made of Blocks" is one of the stories that will have you constantly questioning yourself. What would you do in Alex or even his wife Jody's shoes? And honestly, the truth was often suffocating because nothing was black and white and yes, there were times I could see myself getting frustrated or angry or upset as the characters did in certain situations and the guilt I felt almost immediately made me feel so ashamed.  I really could feel what this couple went through day in, day out and it wasn't difficult to see how things had managed to fall apart.

"Life is an adventure, not a walk. That's why it's so difficult."

I loved "A Boy made of Blocks." It was masterfully penned with characters that were fortunately and often unfortunately relatable. The unique and very quirky way parts of the story were delivered equally added something special to the execution of Alex's story. A job well done to Keith Stuart. 

This is easily a ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ read for me. What would be the icing on the cake is Jody's POV. I would have loved to have gotten inside her head and had a good rummage around.

Blog Tour: Monica Murphy's "Safe Bet (The Rules #4)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for Monica Murphy's "Safe Bet (The Rules #4)."


Synopsis

Sydney Walker’s new job is perfect. As the live-in nanny to the most famous quarterback in the NFL and his beautiful wife, she couldn’t have it any better. Their kids are adorable. Her bosses are more than generous. Plus, there are hot football players at the house all the time. Life can’t get much better than this. 

Until her life turns into an absolute nightmare. The media is abuzz with rumors that she and her boss Drew Callahan are having a torrid affair. Everyone knows the truth—except the public. So Drew’s wife Fable comes up with the perfect idea. 

She creates a fake relationship between Sydney and one of the rookie players on Drew’s team. Wade Knox is forever indebted to Drew and Fable and readily agrees to the set up. Pretending to be in a romantic relationship with the hot nanny for a week—how hard can it be? 

Crazy how it only takes one week for two people to fall head over heels in love… 

(This mash-up new adult romance features characters from both the One Week Girlfriend series and The Rules series.) 

Review: Jo

I loved absolutely everything about this book. As soon as I discovered this mash-up was on the way, I have been itching to get my hands on "Safe Bet." The "One Week Girlfriend" series is my top favourite from Monica Murphy and I have also loved "The Rules" so to have the characters from both sounded like book heaven to me and I am so happy with how this new novel played out. 

"What we're doing is supposed to be fake. 
So why did that kiss feel so damn real?"

Wade Knox was probably one of the sweetest guys I have met from this author, he may not have always been that way but I easily fell for the man that Wade had become. He truly was a swoon-worthy character and I adored the way that he treated Sydney. Wade acted so respectively towards her and with such gentle love. He melted my heart on many occasions. 

"This, what we're sharing now, it's real, Syd. 
You can't deny it. I won't deny it either."

Sydney was a character that I instantly enjoyed and knew that I would love getting to know everything about her. Sydney was kind and loving and having been a nanny myself, I could easily relate to her job. Lucky Sydney was offered the job of nanny for Drew and Fable (Yay! I was crazy happy to be back with them again). When Knox came onto the scene and he was introduced to Sydney, I was excited and had high hopes for their relationship. I just knew that Wade and Sydney would make a great couple. 

"Everything's happening way too fast. And I don't ever want it to stop." 

I loved the premise of this story, it was a lot of fun but without much drama or angst, which I appreciated. Sometimes it's nice to have a cute romance that blossoms so smoothly. Wade and Sydney's story had me hooked, especially once things began to hot up for the couple. As well as enjoying Wade and Sydney, I also loved that Monica included characters from OWG series and I also had chance to catch up with previous characters from this series. It was so lovely to see Drew and Fable as a fully fledged married couple doing the family thing. I was also surprised to get a glimpse of Jen and Colin. I loved their story so I was pleased to see their return. If you are a fan of the OWG series, you are going to love this book. I was smiling the whole way through. 

"Safe Bet" gets 4 hearts from me.

Blog Tour: CD Reiss's "Separation Games (The Games Duet #2)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for CD Reiss's "Separation Games (The Games Duet #2)." 


Synopsis

The stunning conclusion to the New York Times Bestseller. 

These are the unbreakable rules in the game.
Stay collected. Compartmentalize. Think your next move through. Never let your heart dictate your tactics. 

The heart is impulsive. 
The heart makes bad decisions. 
The heart doesn’t see the long game. 

Because the heart may have decided to get Adam back, but when the endgame comes, the heart’s going to be the first thing to break. 

Review: Jo 

I have been swept away by this book. In my opinion it is CD Reiss's best work yet. I have loved every single word that graced the pages of "Separation Games." 

"This is worth it. He is worth it. Hold your breath. 
Hold it for 1,209,600 seconds. Then. Breathe. 
Because he will be yours." 

Following the way that the previous book had ended, I could hardly wait to begin the final instalment of this mesmerising duet. I was looking forward to discovering what happened next for Adam and Diana, but at the same time I was feeling apprehensive at what lay ahead. 

"No matter what the level of our hearts' betrayal,
 our souls knew where we belonged."

Reading this concluding part, made me feel so many things and there were many times that I was overcome with despair for Adam and Diana as they struggled to hold onto their marriage. I wanted so much for their relationship to work, but they were driving me crazy with how their story was playing out. I truly felt that this was a brilliant representation of how a relationship can go wrong as well as the challenges that staying together can bring. Obviously, not all couples have the BDSM element in their lives but there can be many other obstacles that couple's face and I could wholeheartedly resonate with the way that Adam and Diana handled their situation. 

"As every step pulled me farther, 
the tether between us got thin enough to break."

There were many moments during this story when I realised that Adam and Diana both wanted different things. Everything was going drastically wrong for the pair and my heart was breaking in two. It was so sad watching two people that feel so strongly for each other fall apart but I believed that there was still so much love between Adam and Diana. The way that they continued to fight, refusing to give up easily was enough proof of this for me. This gave me a glimmer of hope in the story which delighted me no end and I was convinced that there was still a chance for Adam and Diana. 

"I breathed my gratitude and fell asleep 
with the shape of his kiss burned into my cheek." 

CD's writing is in a league of it's own, The way in which she tells a story is so different to any other author that I have read. Each sentence is uniquely crafted making an elegant and spellbinding story. This author continues to amaze me with each new book that she writes. I am in awe of CD Reiss's work and I cannot wait to read her next novel. I am sure it will be as equally as stunning and perfect as this series.

"We would hold our worlds together with ribbon of love." 

I could not recommend this duet enough and it gets 5 hearts from me.

                                                     


Excerpt

He took my hand, putting it in his lap as if it was finally home. “What are we doing?” he asked.

“Screwing up.”

“Like it’s our job.”

“If you’re going to do something, I say, do it all the way.”

He squeezed my hand. I was jarred by the way he looked in the direction of the window, but not through it. He didn’t look like the commanding Dominant who had been my partner for the past few weeks. As handsome as ever, and graceful and sharp, a leader and a decider, but not the same. 

He faced me. “I don’t know how to fix this.”

The streetlights glinted off the light in one eye and his jaw locked, catching things he’d never say. He looked like a man I knew and abandoned. Manhattan Adam.

“We can’t fix it,” I said, putting his hand in my lap, watching our clasped hands make a new form. I rubbed the outside of his thumb with mine, feeling it’s familiar shape, the strength of the knuckle and the texture of his skin on mine. “We have to build something new. And we can.” I looked up from our hands to his face.

Could I make him feel my optimism? Could I take a piece of it onto a fork and lift it to his lips? Would they part? Would he let me lay it on his tongue? Would he chew and swallow, saying “I do. I do believe we can, I do.”

He didn’t say that. He didn’t believe, but his lips needed to touch my belief and his tongue needed to taste my hope.

I don’t know if I kissed him or if he kissed me, but it felt like a first kiss, with full quivering that left me paralyzed at his nearness. The act of two tongues tasting each other was so intimate between strangers, so taken for granted over time, and so rarely is the wonder of it felt through to the bone.

He was licorice. Fennel and leather. And he moved like cool water, reacting to my movements, countering with his hands and his mouth, covering me with his attention. The kiss was the sway of sex, the smell of it, the carnal desire without the promise of anything but another dance.

About the Author 

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestselling author. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up, she's at the well, hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

Critics have dubbed the books "poetic," "literary," and "hauntingly atmospheric," which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she's some sort of braggart who's too good to chop a cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Review: Debra Anastasia's "For All The Evers."


Synopsis

Fallen Billow should be in college like most of her friends, but instead she’s raising her brother and working as a housekeeper at a vintage local hotel. It’s back-breaking work, but not nearly as challenging as fending off unwanted advances from the hotel’s owner. 

Thomas McHugh is fighting for our country, across the globe and decades before Fallen Billow was even born. So there’s no way they’re soul mates. There’s no way he can be desperate to see her, hold her, kiss her. Except there is. 

Is it a dream when he inks his name on her skin? Is it a delusion when she puts her hands on his face and says she loves him? Nothing has ever felt more real. 

Fate has etched paths for Thomas and Fallen that even time cannot touch. A Purple Heart proclaims Thomas’ valor and bravery. And his death. But Fallen dares to dream of the impossible. She wants Thomas to stay. Just stay. 

A tribute to all who have served our country, this novel honors the impossible beauty of love and the endless power of hope. Come open your heart and celebrate the many facets of bravery with Fallen and Thomas. 

Review: Jo 

This review is going to be a short one as I do not want to give anything away from this incredible book. Debra Anastasia has delivered the most enchanting story and after reading the final few pages, I feel so privileged that the author took the decision to share this epic tale of captivating love. If you are looking for a spectacular read to begin the year with, this is the one for you. 

"I'll love you for all the evers I get." 

"For All The Evers" was like nothing I had previously read. It was a love story that has truly bewitched me and I am certain that it is a novel that I will always remember. It was a story that instantly captured my attention and put my mind in a whirl as I struggled to comprehend what was happening, however the more that I read the more everything began to make sense. With this book, I was taken on a journey that was filled with emotion and by the time I reached the final chapters, I was reading with tears streaming down my face. I was overwhelmed with what I had discovered and how the story was coming to an end. I would recommend having a box of tissues near by. I am sure that you will need them! 

"Know that I'll love you more than time." 

This was an unforgettable story that I am certain will capture your heart. I wholeheartedly recommend reading it as soon as you get the chance.
