5 Star Reads & Oh No, Say It Ain’t So…It’s Almost Time for Game of Thrones!

www.dgbookblog.com.oh.no.gameofthrones

Oh my gosh! I mentioned on my Instagram awhile back that I have been on a bit of a hiatus. I have had a ridiculously hard time getting into my reading lately. I can’t decide what to read and then when I finally do, I don’t finish. I feel antsy, and it is driving me nuts! Have I fallen into the notorious ‘book slump?’ Am I sick? Who knows!

I actually think Game of Thrones is to blame as a culprit in my mystery illness! Continue reading

Review for The Opposite of You (Opposites Attract #1) by Rachel Higginson!

The Opposite of You Cover

Synopsis:

I’ve sworn off men.

All men.

Famous last words, right? You’re expecting some epic tale of reluctant love and my dramatic change of heart? Well, you’re not going to get it.

I’m stubborn. And headstrong. And I’ve just survived the worst three years of my life. After escaping an abusive boyfriend to live in hostels and cheap hotels while I worked my way across Europe, I’ve come to two conclusions.

The first? Now that I’m back home, I’m going to squander my expensive culinary degree on a food truck that caters to the late night drunk crowd.

The second? I’m going to prove to the bastard across the plaza that my street food is better than his fussy five course monstrosities.

Killian Quinn might be Food and Wine’s Chef to Watch Out For. He might have a Michelin Star. He might have every food critic in the city wrapped around his too-large fingers. But he’s also pretentious and unbearably arrogant and the very opposite of me.

So he can keep his unsolicited advice and his late night visits and his cocky smiles. I want none of it. Or him.

I want the opposite.

DaisyGal’s Review:

I love how Laurelin Paige’s romances vary so much! All are super sexy (she can certainly write some steam!), but her stories can range from dark and angsty to incredibly fun and sweet. Sex Symbol is more of a light-hearted read with its fun, feisty, and strong willed characters, yet it’s filled with loads of passion and kept me brimming with anticipation from the get-go!

Blog Tour, Excerpt, & Review for Tycoon by Katy Evans!

www.dgbookblog.com-tycoon-katy.evans.BT

Tycoon, an all-new standalone from Katy Evans is now available!!!

Publication Date: June 20th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis: 

He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.

Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.

That man is gone.

In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.

He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.

The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.

It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.

I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.

And he doesn’t.

Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.

Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.

He’s assessing every piece of me, to the point I’ve never felt so bare.

I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.

Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.

Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

Tycoon Amazon

DaisyGal’s Review:

With its intriguing storyline, Tycoon pulled me in from the beginning! I couldn’t wait to know more about the ruthless businessman, Aaric Christos, and his relationship with Bryn Kelly. There is such a mysteriousness in this ‘almost’ second chance romance, and Katy Evans did a great job creating this unique and complex story!  Continue reading

www.dgbookblog.com.AllIAm-LaunchDayBlitz_v2

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas comes a new novella in the This Man series. You don’t need to read the series to enjoy this story, but if you’re already a Jesse Ward fan, just wait till you see the advice he gives Drew about falling in love.

*༻༺*

I thought I had control.  I was so, so wrong…

I don’t need a relationship.  I have Hux, a decadent club where I quench whatever raw desire I choose.  I take pleasure and I give it – no strings attached.  So when Raya Rivers comes in asking for someone cold, emotionless, and filthy… well, no man ever takes his wicked pleasure quite the way I do.

Only Raya is different. Vulnerable. And carrying some deep sorrow that gets past all my carefully constructed walls and inexplicably makes me care.  Now craving controls me.  Ice has given way to red-hot need.

But Raya has no idea about my other life – my real life.  That I’m daddy to an adorable little girl.  My two worlds are about to collide with the force of a supernova.  Once Raya knows the truth, will she be able to accept all I am?

This morning I overslept, then slipped on a stray sock and banged my toe into the nightstand. The elevator in my building broke and I had to run down six flights of stairs. And then my local coffee shop was closed. For health code violations.

What’s that? Not the end of the world? You want me to suck it up?

Did I mention I’m wearing a wedding dress… on the subway?

It’s a Good Day for a Hot Mess. Someone embroider that on a pillow.

www.dgbookblog.com:whenit'sreal.erinwatt:teaser1

Synopsis:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author duo Erin Watt comes the addictive contemporary tale of a teen rock star in need of an image makeover and the teen girl hired to be his fake girlfriend.

Meet Oakley Ford-teen celebrity, renowned pop star, child of famous movie stars, hottie with millions of fangirls… and restless troublemaker. On the surface he has it all, but with his home life disintegrating, his music well suddenly running dry, and the tabloids having a field day over his outrageous exploits, Oakley’s team decides it’s time for an intervention. The result: an image overhaul, complete with a fake girlfriend meant to show the world he’s settled down.

Enter seventeen-year-old Vaughn Bennett-devoted sister, part-time waitress, the definition of “normal.” Under ordinary circumstances she’d never have taken this gig, but with her family strapped for cash, she doesn’t have much of a choice. And for the money Oakley’s team is paying her, she figures she can put up with outlandish Hollywood parties and a team of publicists watching her every move. So what if she thinks Oakley’s a shallow, self-centered jerk? It’s not like they’re going to fall for each other in real life…right?
