Release Day Blitz and Review - THE DIRECTION AND DON JUAN by Katy Regnery


The Director and Don Juan by Katy Regnery is LIVE! FREE with Kindle Unlimited!



young couple in love, studio shot 

 From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a brand new series set on Blueberry Lane! The Director and Don Juan is the second of four books about the Philadelphia-based Story sisters who are all on the look-out for love. Heiress Alice Story left her father's company three years ago in a blaze of glory, inviting all of his employees to jump ship and join her, but only one accepted her offer: mail room clerk, Carlos Vega. While Alice spent the next three years getting her own company off the ground, Carlos became her indispensable right-hand man -- executive assistant and office manager, loyal counsel and trusted co-worker. And all the while, they were quietly falling in love with each other. When Alice is offered a lucrative business deal in Puerto Rico, island-born Carlos is the perfect person to accompany her on her trip as translator, but as they travel together from Philadelphia to Santo Domingo to Ponce, two unlikely co-workers will discover that during their three years working together, their feelings for each other have grown far deeper than they ever could have guessed. And though business-minded, proper Alice will try her very best to ignore the longings of her heart, scorching hot, insanely sexy Boricua, Carlos, has no intention of letting her go. 



The Director and Don Juan is book two of the Story Sisters series, and it’s another hit for me!  Katy has a way with words that will pull you into the story and make you feel like you are right there with the characters.  They are easy to understand and so likeable that they feel like they’re your friends.

Alice Story has worked for her father for years and has been unappreciated by him in every way.  When she finally decides she has had enough, she puts her foot down and walks out the door.  Before leaving, she asks anyone if they want to follow her to her own company that she is going to start.  It seems no one wanted to stand up and she feels some disappointment, but here comes Carlos Vega to walk out the door with her.  Carlos is educated beyond the mail room clerk that he has been hired to do for her father.

Three years later, her company is thriving and Carlos is her right hand man, and I loved how much he had grown over that time.  He’s more confident than ever, and I loved that about him.

When Alice has a huge opportunity for her company, she and Carlos head to Puerto Rico.  Carlos translates and opens her mind, and heart, to so many things.  She begins to see him as a person and not as just an employee.  I loved seeing her realize he is a man in every sense of the word, and their chemistry is off the charts!

As with Katy’s writing, you have all the feels, emotions, and steamy scenes that will leave you breathless.  I loved seeing Alice look at the world other than a business world.  She sees what her family says she has been missing by being alone and realizes she wants that for herself. I’m so drawn into this series as I have been with the previous books ever since we met the English brothers in the beginning and I can’t wait to see more of the Story ladies in the future.

Don't forget to preorder The Flirt and the Fox! RELEASE DATE: September 21st

Release Day Blitz and Review - THE BEARD MADE ME DO IT by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: The Beard Made Me Do It
Series: The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC Series #5
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2017
Cover Mode: Jacob Wilson
Photographer: Furious Fotog

He’s only a friend. 

Those words had haunted him from the moment Jessie James had heard them muttered from the one girl, above all others, that he thought had his back. 
Sixteen years later, he still feels those words like a brand on his soul. 
Lucky for him he has a son to take care of, a full-time job that demands every single second of the day, and not a single moment to spare for the likes of a woman that won’t stand up for him when he needs her the most. 
He’s only a friend. 

The words had slipped out of Ellen’s mouth, and before she could recall them or better yet, explain, Jesse is gone from her life for good, taking her heart with him. 

She tries to find her way out of the pit of despair, but not one single person, no matter how much she tries, can fill the void that he left in his wake. Time heals all wounds. Or at least that is how the saying goes. It’s a crock of crap, though.
Sixteen years pass when Jessie and Ellen see each other again without the influence of the town and bad memories surrounding them, and it’s as if not a single day has passed. 

Ellen knows the instant that her eyes see her old love that she’s still just as much in love with him today as she was all those years ago. The problem is that Jesse wants nothing to do with her. Or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself.

“The want, the need, the passion, the drama and ohhhh THE HAWT ALPHA MC MALE, and look he is on the cover of this book!!! lol Goodness this book gave me the feels and I would love for this book to go on and” - iScream Books
“The Dixie Warden Rejects MC or as I call it the Bearded MC series just keeps getting better and better and leaves us yearning for more in the end.” - Smashly Bookalicous Reviewing Chicks
“If you like second chance romances packed with emotion, drama, and action you will definitely want to read this one.” - Cat’s Guilty Pleasures

This book is book five in The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC series and I immediately fell in love with Jessie.  We met Ellen and Jessie in the previous book, and I admit I didn’t like her then, but this book definitely changed my mind about her.

Ellen broke poor Jessie’s heart by saying he was ‘only a friend’ knowing they were more than that.  I was so mad at her for that, and I didn’t know if she would redeem herself in my eyes.

Jessie is raising his son and between him and working, he has no time for anything else.  But, when Ellen and Jessie come face to face fourteen years later, the old feelings come back for her.  She realizes how much she loves him and missed him.  Too bad that he doesn’t feel the same because he wants nothing to do with her.  But who can blame him?

It seems that Jessie will never break down his walls that he put up to protect his heart from Ellen. But, never say never because he begins to open up his heart and realize she is his one true love.

The chemistry between them is off the charts and I adored Jessie for raising his son.  He loves with all his heart, and I think he is one of my favorites of this MC.  I love a good second chance romance and being a biker book, too, this was right up my alley. I can’t wait to get the next book and get more of these tough bikers with hearts of gold after reading this 4 star book.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
