What Happens at the Lake by Vi Keeland ebook Kindle Crack

Title: What Happens at the Lake

Author: Vi Keeland

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Trope: Grumpy-Sunshine

Release Date: January 15, 2024

 

She smelled like damn summer.

And it pissed me off.

Plus, I was tired from a shitty night’s sleep. I’d tossed and turned thinking about Little Miss Home Improvement wearing nothing but a pair of denim short overalls and work boots—no shirt, no socks, definitely no bra or underwear.

Josie hopped down from the last two steps on the ladder. “Can I ask you something?”

“What?”

“Are you always this grumpy in the morning?”

“I’m not grumpy.”

“No? So this is what? Your idea of a sparkling personality? I asked if your coffee was okay, and you grunted at me.”

“That wasn’t a grunt. That was a yes.”

Josie made a short, deep noise that sounded like a pig.

I arched a brow. “Is that supposed to be me?”

She made the sound again, this time adding some monkeylike arm movements and jumping around. “Gronk.”

“Cute.”

She jumped again. “Gronk. Gronk.”

I tried not to react, but she was just too damn adorable.

Josie pointed at my face. “There it is again. The elusive Mr. Grumpy Pants smile. It’s kind of…dare I say…nice.” She made an exaggerated gasping sound and covered her mouth. “Oh no. I hope it’s not too painful.”

“Alright, wiseass. I get the point. How about you take your oinking ass out front and grab one of the small two by fours I left on the porch? I’ll show you how to make an easy support to hold up the drywall while it gets screwed into the ceiling.”

Josie strutted to the door. The woman was wearing a white tank top and long, pale pink, flowy skirt to do construction. It looked like she was going on a picnic date, rather than hanging sheetrock—though the tank top hugged her in all the right places, and there was something about her collarbone that I couldn’t drag my eyes away from. She bent to pick up the wood out front, and the top of her tank gaped open, giving me a clear view down her shirt. I forced my head in the other direction, though my eyes managed to slant and continue looking.

“Jesus Christ,” I grumbled to myself. “I need to get the fu¢k out of here.”

 

★★★

 

Excited?  We are too!

I have a book hangover today in all the best ways. I loved this book so much that I reread it.

When a Moth Loved a Bee by Pepper Winters

Pepper Winters has revealed the cover for When a Moth Loved a Bee. Release date: TBD 2022. 

When a Moth Loved a Bee by Pepper Winters

New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, delivers a brand new passionately raw and romantically dangerous Dark Fantasy Romance.

Special Preorder price of $3.99 will go to $4.99 on release.

Not all love stories begin with connection. Not all romances grow into affection. And not all soulmates are destined to be together.
However, this is not that kind of story.
This story?
Stars, where do I begin?
I could tell you when I fell in love with her. I could tell you how we fought so hard to belong. And I could tell you where it all went so horribly wrong.
But that would ruin our tale.
Instead, I'll just tell you that we are the reason the world wept and turned to ashes.


Darro is a Child of the Moon.
Captive on Vremya island, he was found instead of born. Gifted by the moon and imprisoned by prophecy, his masters wait to see if he is the one foreseen to destroy the world.

Runa is a Child of the Sun.
Delivered by an eclipse on the night of a full moon, she is everything the masters have feared. It is said that the fate of Simperium exists within her palm, and unless she is guided and protected, she will deliver death instead of life.

What a shame prophecy didn't warn them what would happen when a moth fell in love with a bee...


Full Blurb, Cover, and Release Date to be advised. Preorder date is a placeholder only and will be confirmed soon. Guaranteed 2022 release. Not suitable for under R18 due to the graphic nature and explicit content of this Dark Fantasy Romance.

COVER REVEAL & TWO GIVEAWAYS: Blind Reality by Heidi McLaughlin

I'm so excited to read Twisted Reality!  I would recommend reading Blind Reality (book #1) first.  Don't forget to enter Heidi's two giveaways below.


Release Date: August 16, 2016

Twisted Reality Synopsis
When we left off in Blind Reality, Josh was on bended knee proposing to Joey. The cameras were rolling, and the audience was waiting…

Joshua Wilson never thought he’d get married until the day that he met and married Joey Mitchell on the hit television show Married Blind. 

Joey never thought she’d find love… period, especially after her heart was broken. But now that she’s married to her celebrity crush, she’s trying to turn her fairytale into her happily ever after before the wicked witch takes a bit out of her apple.

Now TV’s favorite couple is moving their love affair off camera and trying to build a life around Josh’s Hollywood career while dodging his crazy fans, producers wanting to chronicle their first year of marriage for the public and Jules Maxwell—Josh’s all too famous ex. 

But we all know where there’s good, there’s bad. Every relationship has its ups and downs. With the cameras no longer watching their every move, will the love they shared in the house be the same when their lives become a Twisted Reality?


Synopsis
Joshua Wilson, an up-and-coming movie star, is turned off by the idea of marriage. His Oscar-winning smile and breakout role in the summer’s hottest romantic comedy bring in enough attention to satisfy Joshua’s cravings for the spotlight – not to mention the never-ending supply of willing women. 

Joey Mitchell is down in the dumps after finding out that her fiancΓ© cheated on her with her best friend, and is living at home with her parents until she can get back on her feet. Without Joey’s knowledge, her overbearing and neurotic mother submits an application for her to appear on the reality show, Married Blind. When the producers surprise her with the news that they have cast her, Joey wants nothing to do with the show but agrees to participate because, at this point in her life, she really has nothing to lose.

Lights, camera, action… Welcome to another season of Married Blind. Contestants are about to take the plunge, but only one couple will come out of the house winners!

Book boyfriend finder? There's a new app for that!

Image of Colleen Hoover's Crave application channel 

This sounds like a pretty cool app for romance book lovers.  For less than a dollar a week, Crave application users will receive unique daily content from select authors including instant notifications, videos, and photos from the lead character.  

According to the press release "The Crave Studio scours the world and polls fans to discover actors who resemble the actual book characters so much that they might have well been the inspiration for them. Crave then turns them into real-life stand-ins for their characters, turning the audience’s fantasy into reality."  

The first books to launch on Crave are November 9 by Colleen Hoover, followed by books from Abbi Glines and K.A. Tucker.

Full press release: 
Paragraph and Atria Launch The CRAVE App - A Totally New Way to Experience Romance Books
Now Available on iOS, coming soon to Android.
NEW YORK (December 3, 2015) – Paragraph and Atria Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, today announced the launch of Crave (ThisIsCrave.com) – a new app that matches bestselling authors with the hottest actors to offer romance fans an entirely new reading experience. Crave will be available for download on iOS at launch with Android to follow shortly after.

The first books to launch on Crave are Atria’s November 9, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, followed by books from #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines,  and USA Today bestselling author K.A. Tucker.

Subscribers will receive one installment from the book each day, and every new segment of the story is coupled with instant notifications, videos and photos from the lead character.  Books are released serially, typically in advance of their official publication date, creating a new reading paradigm where the only place to experience the enhanced story will be in the app.

“The way we consume information has changed dramatically in the past few years,” said Ziv Navoth, Paragraph’s CEO. “We took the romance novel and asked ourselves how can we create an experience that fits the way people like to experience stories these days. The result is Crave.”
The Crave Studio scours the world and polls fans to discover actors who resemble the actual book characters so much that they might have well been the inspiration for them. Crave then turns them into real-life stand-ins for their characters, turning the audience’s fantasy into reality.

“Today’s romance reader isn’t satisfied with simply reading a story,” said Colleen Hoover. “She wants to be immersed in the story and get closer to the characters, while also building a relationship with the author who created them.”

“This is an exciting endeavor for us.  Truly the way readers consume, share and talk about books has changed greatly, and with Crave we are able to marry new methods of delivery with high-quality, value-added content to engage readers in an entirely new type of experience,” says Judith Curr, President and Publisher, Atria Publishing Group. 

Crave is a subscription-based service. Fans subscribe to an author’s channel for less than a dollar a week ($3.99/month) and receive daily installments from their newest books over a period of 90 days. Crave is available starting today through the Apple App Store [http://bit.ly/1O4NCEE], and will be available soon on Android.
