Rules of the Game by Elaine Raco Chase

"You need an attitude adjustment!" Samantha Logan told Adam Rourke.

She didn't care that he was rich, she didn't care that he was handsome, and she didn't care that her boss was his surrogate father.

She tried to ignore the fact that his deep voice hit her behind the knees and made her feel oddly off balance. And she was sure those heart palpitations were the result of drinking two five-hour energy drinks in less than thirty minutes and definitely not from a pair of broad shoulders, green eyes and a sexy stubble.

The Sexperts: The Girl With the Pearl Necklace by Melinda DuChamp

In the future, some people are still prudes...

And the most prudish of all are the righteous defenders of righteousness at the Purity Foundation. When the director sends her own daughter on an undercover mission to eliminate sexual satisfaction from earth, the only thing standing between the human race and complete and total sexual frustration are the good instructors of the Seimann Sex Institute.

Fanny and Peter, along with new instructors Chastity and Milo, have devoted their lives to ensuring everyone can enjoy a healthy, prosperous sex life. But they will have to use every tool and technique in their arsenal if they are to overcome this new threat, because the Purity Foundation isn't going down...not without a fight.

No sacrifice is too much if the cause is just, and love might the greatest cause of all...

Going from playing at a local dive bar to touring with mega band Chasing Cross, seemingly overnight, and ultimately saving the headliner's tour, has the men of Fallen Tuesday absolutely loving the life on the road. In fact, Luke is loving it so much that he has used every excuse to not tell his bandmates about his medical condition that is worsening with each performance.

In a small town just outside Syracuse, New York, Amy Deleranne seeks solitude in the kitchen of Tommy Two's, her uncle Tom's restaurant that should have been hers by now. She understands his emotional attachment, but she has poured her life into its survival and has more at stake than anyone knows...

With Luke battling a skyrocketing career and the medically unknown and Amy terrified to look over her shoulder at all times, it is no wonder that sparks fly when they meet. However, can their hearts, and their careers, survive the secrets they've been keeping?

Review : Dissonance by Drew Elyse ~ JMAC

 
Synopsis
 
The first time Logan ever saw Charlotte, she was staring up into the rain.
Logan is searching for direction when his new roommate makes that entrance. With a body of pure sin, giant bright eyes, and the voice of an angel, she has his attention immediately. But everything about Charlotte is also screaming "hands off."
Charlotte is hiding. She made a life of pretending, and she is happy to keep it that way. Physically and emotionally scarred by the secrets of her past, the last thing she needs is a gorgeous roommate asking all the wrong questions. Their mutual attraction and devotion to music may be too strong to keep him at arms length, though.
Can they find a way to resolve the dissonance between them?

This book is intended for audiences 18+. It contains explicit language and sexual content.
 
 
 
My Review
 
 
Dissonance was a really great read.  The book mainly focused on the relationship between Logan and Charlotte.
Charlotte was broken.  She was a victim of the things that happened to her, yet she felt that what happened to her was her fault.  Charlotte was closed, and empty inside.  She never told anyone what happened to her, not even her best friend Alex, or her brother Eli. 
When a horrible incident leaves Charlotte in the hospital, Eli, Charlotte's brother intervenes.  Eli's best friend Logan needs a roommate, and Eli thinks it's a good idea for Charlotte to be that person.  To get Eli off of her back Charlotte agrees to move in with Logan, not expecting her life to change.
Logan is your typical musician.  He sleeps with whoever he wants, he's not into relationships whatsoever.  He lives for his music.  Even though his band hasn't made it big yet, he still hasn't given up on them.  Besides being apart of the band, Logan works for his fathers company.  Anyways, when Logan first saw Charlotte, he was pulled to her.  After Logan discovered her love for music, and what music meant to Charlotte, he knew he wanted to be the one to save her. 
Even though Logan and Charlotte's journey was anything but easy, Logan wouldn't give up.
Dissonance is the beautiful story of learning to live with your past, and not letting it define you as a person. Also, learning that it's OK to let people in because you don't have to always go through hard things on your own.  Dissonance was an amazing heartfelt story.  I laughed and cried my eyes out.  Drew has a way with words. From beginning to end I was completely hooked.  The thing I loved most about this book was the fact that it wasn't your typical boy band book.  Dissonance was about the love 2 people shared for music, but not just the love, both Logan and Charlotte were empty, and the only way they new how to feel was through music.  It was a different look into music, and I loved that.
Drew great job with Dissonance. I can't wait to read Alex and Eli's story.
Drew, you have a forever fan in me !

Cover Reveal ~ Persuading Tomorrow by J. Laslie ~ JMAC



Book: Persuading Tomorrow
Author: J Laslie
Genre: New Adult Releasing September

When the unimaginable happens and Jordan loses her best friend on the night she had planned to tell him her feelings, it leaves her to wonder if she’s the guilty party, but her memories of that night are fuzzy. In an attempt to leave her past and the hateful stares of her peers behind, she moves across the country to live with her mother in Esterwilde, Pennsylvania. It’s a small close-knit town, but there no one should know about her past, or so she thought.
When Zyler runs into the new girl in town he can’t help but feel a connection, but he also knows her past harbors a horrible secret. He’s heard the rumors, but doesn’t believe them. Seeing Jordan in pain kills him and all he wants to do is take it away.
Jordan soon realizes that no matter what she does she’s not going to be able to outrun her past. Can Zyler show her that despite the hate and ignorance in the world that life is still worth living? Will she ever figure out the truth about the night that took away her best friend?
“You gotta stop saying things like that.”

“Why?” I see him push off the counter and step around to face me. He brings a hand up to run his thumb across my cheek and my breath hitches at the intimate contact. His touch still seems to shoot electricity through me. My skin is on high alert when he’s around and I can feel the pace of my heart pick up into a full gallop by the close proximity of him.
“Be.. because I said so?” It shouldn’t have come out as a question and it lacked the conviction that I was feeling inside.
“I don’t think you mean that. I think you like it when I say nice things about you. You just don’t know how to handle them. Jordan, you are a beautiful person no matter what people may have said to you in the past. I know you hide behind that shy exterior, but you need to push that aside and not let people put you down. You have the most amazing wavy, red hair. I didn’t even know it came in that shade naturally. Your eyes are the most brilliant green I’ve ever seen.”


J. Laslie lives in Louisville, KY with her wonderful husband, two kids, four dogs, and mother-in-law. She runs Sweet Yet Naughty Book Blog and is also an event coordinator for the Louisville Authors Event. She has always been an avid reader and now wants to try her hand at writing. 
In her spare time she loves to do digital scrapbooking, hanging out with her BFF Heather, or reading a good book. Her favorite genres to read are Young Adult and Young Adult Dystopian. Though she loves a good romance novel too.
