Up In Flames by Abbi Glines book review * Rosemary Beach Novel book 13 *

The villain of Rosemary Beach finally gets her own happy ending in the long-awaited final novel of the #1 New York Times bestselling new adult romance series by Abbi Glines.

The blockbuster #1 New York Times bestselling Rosemary Beach series ends with a bang when the troubled character readers love to hate gets her very own happily ever after in this eagerly anticipated and overwhelmingly requested story. Known for causing problems for everyone in Rosemary Beach, Nan has been growing up lately, and she’s finally taking center stage—and finding love with the man she least expected.

Up In Flames is Book 13 of The Rosemary Beach series. An eagerly awaited book  by all -  Nanetes book. 

With Nan  always being the villian in most of the books we expect to see the Mean spirited, villian, spoiled rich bitch and even vicious character come to par. 

What we do see is growth and discovery and redemption within her. Great character development and a different side to the Nasty nan we have hated in previous books. 

Abbi certainly brought some kind of redemption for Nan in this book. I as a reader connected with her ok, I think because we were given a few reasons too. A hotty to cool hot headed, nasty Nan .

In Up In Flames we meet Gannon. He was bossy, sexy as sin and that alpha male that makes not only our jaws drop butyou heart flutter. 

Nan certainly met her match with Gannon , A strong character - someone to tame her and settle her wild and nasty ways. 

Overall, I was impressed with this story I feel it redeemed Nan. Some may not see it this way and still dislike her character. But in this story - We see her faults  - she is like us all , has flaws , we see some of her inner most thoughts, and that the bitch she was , was just a facade to hide all this underneath. 

A fair bit of drama within the story, possibly a bit less of this would have been great , but overall an ending I am sure all readers will enjoy . 

A short read that can be read in one sitting. 

Thanks to Simon and Schuster for supplying me this book for review for my honest opinion and thoughts.

Instead of You - Anie Michaels Release Tour & Giveaway

Title: Instead of You
Author: Anie Michaels
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
Student/Teacher Romance Novel
Release Date: May 24, 2016 
Two brothers.
Cory was my best friend, the boy who I’d resolved to spend my entire life with. I’d grown to love him, gotten used to the idea of our life together, even if it wasn’t the all-encompassing, soul-crushing, heart-shattering romance it appeared to be.
Hayes was the boy who seemed entirely out of reach. Untouchable. He stole my first kiss, a secret I’d hidden away in the recesses of my heart, protecting the memory and hoping it would be enough to last me a lifetime. When he became my history teacher, it was impossible to hide from him any longer.
There was no way to anticipate just how important both Wallace brothers would become to me, how deeply they would change my life, or how the loss of one would propel me into the arms of the other.

On Her Sex - Christina Elle Release Blitz

Title: On Her Six
Series: An Under Covers Novel
Author: Christina Elle
Genre: Contemporary Romance Suspense
Release Date:  May 23, 2016
New neighbors are bad news in Samantha Harper’s experience. Especially ones as suspicious and brooding as the guy who just moved in next door. So when the dangerous but sexy stranger seems to be involved in something illegal—the aspiring cop in her takes action. If only she could stop thinking about how he looks naked...

All DEA agent Ash Cooper wants to do is lay low and survive this crap surveillance assignment. But after a run-in with his attractive neighbor, he realizes that’s going to be much harder than he planned. Keeping the woman out of trouble is hard enough, but keeping his hands off her is near impossible.

"A truly awesome read! The perfect blend of humor, suspense, action, and romance. This is a book I highly recommend!" -Bette @ NetGalley
"I have to say, I have not read a book with this much humor in it in a long time and it was so refreshing and enjoyable. Christina Elle has done an awesome job of mixing romance, suspense and humor all together. You will not be upset that you decided to read this one!!" -Melanie @ NetGalley
"Refreshing, funny, sweet, and sexy- On Her Six has it all!!! I highly recommend this steaming suspense." -Page Turner @ NetGalley

As she pulled his shorts down, she spoke in a soft voice, “Ash?” “Yes.” The sound rumbled from deep in his chest. “How do you feel?” His shorts were off. She placed a kiss on each muscle of his chest, and then dipped her fingers in the waistband of his shorts. His head lifted from the mattress, and his breathing stopped for a brief second. His gaze sharpened on hers. “Frustrated. Horny as hell. Why? How should I feel?” She needed him crazed with need before she could accomplish what she came to do. Currently, he seemed too with it. “You need to relax,” she said in a soothing tone, circling a nipple with her finger. “Let me do all the work.” He shook his head. “Sorry, babe, that’s not how this works. I’m always an active participant. Always. Most of the fun is knowing I got you off.” He started to sit up, probably to take the foreplay reins, but she shoved him back against the mattress. Surprise flashed in his eyes, then hunger. Yeah, he definitely liked pushy women. “Just lie back and enjoy,” she said. He laced his fingers behind his head, his biceps flexing. Her fingers glided along the elastic of his shorts one final time. One yank and he’d be bared to her. Once she let the tiger out of its cage, she’d have no way of taming it. He would take her, and she wouldn’t try to stop him. She wanted this. She wanted Ash to make love to her.

Christina believes that laughter really is the best medicine, which is why in her stories she blends a healthy dose of hilarious hijinks with gritty suspense.
When she’s not writing fun contemporary romance or quirky romantic suspense, Christina can be found devouring books in every genre, watching Chris Hemsworth on TV, playing board games with her family, working out, watching Chris Hemsworth on TV, napping, watching Chris Hemsworth on TV, and shopping…for Chris Hemsworth’s latest DVD.
