Release Day Review: Dear Jane by Kendall Ryan





Synopsis

I broke her heart ten years ago and left town.

She hates me, and rightly so. It doesn’t matter that the rest of the country loves me, that I’m a starting quarterback with a multi-million-dollar contract. Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a failure who was too young—and too afraid—to fight for what I wanted.

But I’m not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her.

***
He has no idea what happened after he left. And now I’m supposed to work alongside him like we don’t have this huge, messy history?

But I’m older now, wiser, and I won’t let anything stand in my way of doing a good job for this league. Not even one overpaid, arrogant player who thinks we’re going to kiss and make up.

News flash, buddy: I am over you.


My Review

Are you ready for some football? Well, I'm that much of a football fan, but I absolutely loved Dear Jane, by Kendall Ryan. If you love a good second chance romance novel that is swoon worthy and steamy, look no further. Wes and Jane had a passion, that has served them well for the good, the bad, and the indifferent times, over the years. And as we get to know them and they get to know each other, we start to believe that this love could be for forever. Or will it?

Overall, I enjoyed this read. I liked the way it was written and the steady build up of the Wes and Jane's grown-up kind of love. I also liked how their parents were active participants in their story but not too much, and the supporting characters in the story that added a nice touch and a peeked interest into their lives off the field. I am going to give this one 5-stars, just because it was a cute and genuine contemporary romance that had its ups, downs, all-arounds, and why did he do thats that warrants you to run and read Dear Jane, by Kendall Ryan.

Review & Promo Tour: Blood Cure by K.A.Linde






BLOOD CURE
BLOOD TYPE BOOK 3
By K.A. Linde




AVAILABLE NOW!
The stunning conclusion to the Blood Type series finds the world in chaos and turmoil with one final battle left to determine who will survive—humans or vampires.

She had the world on her shoulders. Now she has nothing.
Reyna Carpenter was twenty-one when she became a live-in blood escort for the ruthless and darkly handsome vampire Beckham Anderson. She thought this was just a small price to pay for feeding her brothers back home.

But nothing went as planned. Not even her tumultuous relationship with Beckham. And now she wonders if anything will ever be the same again.


As she finds herself in the midst of a losing rebellion, she and her trusted friends must flee from a city conquered by the vampire elite. With their plans blown to pieces and everything they knew and loved gone, their future hangs in the balance.
Despite all she has lost, Reyna must rise from the ashes, reclaim the life that was stolen—and complete her mission, once and for all.



My Review


Blood Cure by K.A. Linde picked right back up where Blood Match left off. I had hoped that this third and final installment of the Blood Type series would begin with Reyna awakening from a nightmare and somehow things were all right again. However, the beginning was what is what, the aftermath of what had began a new new world order of events.

Reyna Carpenter has really grown since the beginning of the series and continues her growth as she tries to right the wrongs of Visage. She is definitely not the almost annoying heroine we were introduced to in Book One, Blood Type. Her growth and adventures made Blood Cure a page turner, finger swiping read that left me with very little I can tell you without telling you every thing, and I don't believe in spoilers...well at least not today. But I guarantee you that there are enough twist and turns and ups and downs that will leave your head spinning.

This book was emotional. Like really emotional, from the lowest of the lows, to love and lost, to triumphs ever lasting, however, this was not my favorite of the series.  There was so much chaos...good, horrible, and indifferent and by the last word I was left with more questions. I mean I don't think my questions would warrant another book in the series, but there were questions all the same.

I digress. This book did what it needed to do by tying up most of its loose ends to complete this series, and for that I am going to give this one 4.5-stars and recommend that you run and read Blood Cure, by K.A. Linde.   







A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.
For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.
In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.
Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked fa├žade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.
For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.
Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.


As the provocative, sensual Blood Type series continues, the rare bond between Reyna and Beckham is threatened by betrayal, greed, and twisted secrets.
A desperate human. A powerful vampire. A world divided.
Reyna Carpenter was promised paradise. She was delivered into hell.
Giving up her body for money was supposed to be the hardest part of becoming a blood escort. She never expected to lose her heart to her dark, enigmatic boss, Beckham Anderson. After being taken by a depraved captor who plans to rule the world, Reyna will do anything to return to Beckham.
She just has to find the will to survive this game.
From the pawn, rises a queen.


Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story begins in Blood Type and continues in Blood Cure.

My Review

Let me start by saying I really like Blood Type. It was different, but well written. Sometimes difficulty to connect, but intriguing all the same. Reyna was annoying, but who wouldn't be with a lack of showers. Lastly, Beckham, well his name alone should have cause a bit of social anxiety, but he was cold a distant, because he had a lot of crap going on. So, after my 5-star review of the first installment of  this series, I was hopeful for so many reasons to read Blood Match by K.A. Linde, the second book of this series. Bay-bay, let me tell you, Blood Match  was EVERYTHING!

Review Tour: The Wright One by K.A. Linde


Synopsis


A new sexy contemporary romance duet from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…


Secrets swarm all around.

My world is crumbling under the strain.
I don’t know if we can survive this.
My heart is in the Wright place.
But is his?


The Wright One is the last book in the Wright Love Duet that began in The Wright Love. Find out if Sutton and David survive their world of secrets in the conclusion to the Wright Love duet!




My Review

Well, well, well! The Wright One by K.A. Linde picks right back up where she left us dangling in the Wright Love with Sutton Wright and David Calloway dealing with the aftermath of the "big secret". It's a messy situation with hearts and minds and feelings and opinions all over the place that only set the scene for the chaotic and emotional conclusion to their love story.
