Author Bio:

USA Today bestselling author Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.

Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience).

A twelve month long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world. Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.

While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing paranormal and contemporary stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby (strictly for research purposes), cycling, baking bread and curling up with an enjoyable book.

Loved this visit to South Haven – the chemistry is on fire

ALBLD FOR WEBA Little Bit Like Desire by Brooke Blaine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The rock star and the tattoo artist trope gets the Brooke Blaine treatment in this delightful second instalment in the South Haven series.

I absolutely loved this one, no angst, no drama, just a great romance with two people who connected with each other on an emotionally satisfying level and who had chemistry enough to burn the pages.

The whole story really just is a pleasure to read as Bash does a wee bit of secret matchmaking to put two guys who are polar opposites on the surface in each other’s orbit.

Their initial encounter opens the book and be prepared for the temperature to hit boiling point, man the scene is scorching hot.

But it’s way more than just physical. They connect on a friendship level too and everything is just an easy extension of that into a relationship.

Lots of humour and appearances from the rest of the gang all made this a thoroughly deserved five star read.

Book Blitz: Deal Takers by Laura Lee

Deal Takers | Laura Lee

Publication date: July 17th 2018

Genres: Comedy, New Adult, Romance

MY DICK CAN BE A REAL BASTARD SOMETIMES.

When he takes charge, I’ve been known to do a lot of stupid shit, despite the fact that I have a genius IQ.

Case in point: How I met the woman of my dreams.

Now, I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I don’t regret that moment of idiocy one bit. It may have been one of the most embarrassing moments of my life, but you know what they say about first impressions, right?

Well, I can guarantee that I made quite the impression that evening. (Don’t worry; I’ll tell you all the gory details later.)

Most days, she acts like she hates me—probably because I behave like an ass— but we both know the truth: Rainey O’Neil wants me just as much as I want her—she just doesn’t want to admit it.

Good thing I’ve never been one to back down from a challenge.

*Deal Takers is the second installment in the Dealing with Love world but can be read as a standalone.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

Author Bio:

Laura’s passion has always been storytelling. She spent most of her life with her nose in a book thinking of alternate endings or continuations to the story.

She won her first writing contest at the ripe old age of nine, earning a trip to the state capital to showcase her manuscript.

Thankfully for her, those early works will never see the light of day again!

Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and three of the most poorly behaved cats in existence. She likes her fruit smoothies filled with rum, her cupboards stocked with Cadbury’s chocolate, and her music turned up loud.

When she’s not writing or watching HGTV, she’s reading anything she can get her hands on. She’s a sucker for spicy romances, especially those involving vampires, bad boys, or cowboys!

Lightning never strikes the same place twice. Unless he’s a boy called L.

My name is Eden and I only want one thing in life—and it isn’t to have sex with some guy I’ve never met in front of three creepy businessmen.

But when dirty-copper Coop, who holds the deed to my family’s farm, says jump—I ask how high. And ex-street kid L is nothing like I expect him to be.

He’s so much worse.

Now I want three things.

My dad’s farm back.

To know why a guy as hot as L has never slept with a girl before.

Coop to die a painful death.

And there’s a fourth. Here’s a hint…

It starts with the letter L.

Just like this story does.
