Review of Hard Knocks by Lori Foster
Ratings: 4 stars
I received this arc through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review!
Harper Gates has had it bad for for Gage Ringer A.K.A Savage for what seems like forever. After so many yrs of admiring him from afar like every girl in town she’d finally had her chance. As adults things between them just clicked, and just when it was getting hot and heavy he had to leave in order to further his career as a fighter. Even though she understood his decision she nonetheless was hurt that he didn’t look back.  Now that he’s returned home because of an injury, she can’t seem to ignore him. She can see how being taken out of the circuit has done a number on him  and she’s willing to do anything to help him through it. Just how far she’d go to achieve that is the question.
Gage had finally reached a point where he was more than willing to take his friendship with Harper to the next level. But circumstances changed and he had to choose to focus on the goal at hand. That never meant she wasn’t in his thoughts or in his heart. Being back home when he should have been in japan was annoying, but having her ignore him really pisst him off. Oh he knew when she finally spoke to him she was trying to distract him from his blues. So when she proposed they flirt publicly so the other guys would back off the Are you okay? Questionnaire he was more than on board. Only he wasn’t in it to act, but to act on it! 
I loved the moment he realized how much she meant to him and how he’d always been in love with her. Super sweet how he reassured her how she came first. He can definitely can go on my BBF list. Armie on the other hand can go on my yummy “Book Husband” Or BTIWF (Boy Toy I Wanna F!ck) list! For reelz i need those next books in the series yesterday!!! (Uhm come on Mrs. Foster hook a gal up! lol) :D -Juli

Amazon Synopsis:
In the stunning prequel novella to her new mixed martial arts series, New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster brings together an elite fighter and the woman he’s determined to win.
Power. Brute strength. Unforgettable moves. It’s no wonder Harper Gates hasn’t been able to get her fling with Gage “Savage” Ringer out of her head. Months have passed since she laid eyes—or any other body parts—on him. Months without a word of contact…until, sidelined by injury, he comes back to town.
Staying focused on his training seemed like a smart move to Gage, even if he thought about Harper every day. Seeing her again only makes it clear how much is at stake. He’s got one night to earn back her trust. One night to show her that behind his breathtaking skill and ripped body is a man who’ll give her everything she needs.

BLOG TOUR- PROMO, EXCERPT & GIVEAWAY OF FRAGMENT BY ELLIE WADE

Synopsis
What happens when something so terrible tears you apart from the inside out? 
You become a fragment of yourself. 
On the right path to achieving her hopes and dreams, Campbell Stevens has always been a model student. The first time she lets loose during her senior year of high school, she loses everything. 
Living in a nightmare after surviving the most traumatic event, Campbell learns to be content by walking through life single and unattached, free of the uncertainty that relationships bring. She isn’t looking for love. In fact, she goes out of her way to avoid it—that is, until she runs into Deacon Montgomery, a kind and handsome Chicago firefighter. She denies her instant attraction to him, only making him more persistent in his pursuit of her. Despite her desire to be with Deacon, Campbell is too damaged to share herself with anyone else. 
Life left Campbell shattered. Can Deacon help put the fragments back together? Or will she forever be broken?

Excerpt
Excerpt 1: 
“Why are you so nice to me when I keep pushing you away? Why do you keep trying? I’m broken, Deacon. Don’t you know what’s good for you?” Campbell pleads.
“Yeah, I do, and it’s you. I want all of you, and if you are broken, I want all those shattered pieces, too. Please just trust me.”

Cam’s eyes fill with unshed tears as her bottom lip quivers. I grab her head on either side, running my fingers through her hair, pulling her toward me, bringing her mouth to mine. I feel her lips quiver as I taste her, ravishing her mouth. Cam’s hands wrap around my waist and she runs her fingers up and down my back. I explore her mouth, my tongue greedy to touch every part. She whimpers, and my dick throbs in a needful plea.

Fuck, I want this girl.
Excerpt 2: 
With a half sob, I scream into the air that’s charged with the scent and flavor of sex, like an electrical storm of raw pleasure. I feel the warmth flush through my body and I lose my mind to the pleasure it brings. Deacon continues to taste below as he holds my quaking thighs. The ecstasy exits my pores, leaving my skin covered in head-to-toe goose bumps.

My shaking finally starts to slow as Deacon’s tongue mirrors the decelerating cadence. I breathe in and out, deeply trying to regain my equilibrium. My skin glistens with a thin sheen of sweat, my heart racing while my mind and body are in a post-orgasm utopian fog.

What the hell was that?

REVIEW FOR THE ART OF LOVE BY ANNE WHITNEY

http://dlvr.it/6fV91t

Books with this subject are usually very tricky for me, but this one caught my attention because Grace was a fighter. The hazing she received through most of the book made me so damn angry! But really it was very realistic. Most girls/women raped by jocks are usually blamed for it. But she fought those injustices head on, even when she was trembling at the knees. Ian was also a big part of what caught my attention. Sure he mucked it up a few times by going with the crowd, but it never sat well w/ him afterwards. That was a sign he was really a good egg, so i forgave his douchy-ness. It brought on a wave of emotions in me. Most of them angry. Its crazy how an entire HS can come down on a girl and label her a slut just because the head jock says so. And don’t even get me started on the real slut bags of the story : her ex friends. It reminded me: Teenage girls can be the devil! But all that aside This novel brings to light a really dark subject. I’m hoping if there’s a girl out there going through something similar she’ll take strength from this. -Juli
Goodreads Synopsis:
Some boys go too far. Some boys will break your heart. But one boy can make you whole.When Grace meets Ian she’s afraid. Afraid he’ll reject her like the rest of the school, like her own family. After she accuses the town golden boy of rape, everyone turns against Grace. They call her a slut and a liar. But…Ian doesn’t. He’s funny and kind with secrets of his own.But how do you trust the best friend of the boy who raped you? How do you believe in love?A gut-wrenching, powerful love story told from alternating points of view by the acclaimed author of Send.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ- BEAST BY ELLA JAMES

This is an erotic fairy tale inspired by Beauty and the Beast.
  FROM HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY
  At twenty-one years old, third-generation movie star Cal               Hammond was on top of the world. He had more money than      God and more women than any man could need. But when a    night of debauchery ends in tragedy, he forfeits a life of luxury    for a ten-year prison sentence at La Rosa, California’s most  violent prison.

   TO A BRUTAL BEAST
   Eight years later, a ruthless, cunning man runs La Rosa from        the inside. He is known simply as BEAST. All the wardens fear      him. All the gangs obey him. He speaks to no one but his inner      council. What he says is law.

  NOW ONLY SHE CAN SAVE HIM
  Annabelle Mitchell’s father is the warden at La Rosa. He deals      as dirty as his trustees, and after years of smooth relations with   Beast and the gangs he runs, Holt lands on the powerful    prisoner’s hit list. That very afternoon, Annabelle pays a  surprise visit to her father’s work, hoping to use her new  counseling license at a place she thinks she could make a difference. When she catches Beast’s eye, he releases the warden and grabs the daughter. The price for the warden’s error is not death. It’s his precious Belle.
