Cover Reveal: #Bae by Cambria Hebert

Cambria Hebert
(Hashtag #8: Conclusion)
Publication date: September 16th 2016
Genres: New Adult College Romance
The Hashtag Series #8
That’s what happens when you get married.
Turns out sparkly rings, cake and a fantastic wedding do not automatically grant you that, not even when it’s all you truly want.
I’m even starting to doubt the bottomless, unconditional love I share with the man I married will be enough.
I can’t have happily ever after, know why?
Because I can’t give Romeo what he truly wants. I’ve tried. So hard. I won’t be happy unless he is and something is missing. Someone.
Paparazzi are in my face. The flashing cameras and prying eyes are everywhere. My secret is getting harder to hide, and I know the second the scoop is dished the grip I have on the fraying rope of that happily ever after will snap right in my face.
In our face.
I can’t let that happen. No matter what.
Because with or without a happy ending, Romeo comes Before Anyone Else.

Review: Tryst by S.L. Jennings

Tryst (Sexual Education, #2)
Cover Source:
Title: Tryst
Author: S.L. Jennings
Series: Sexual Education #2
Version Reviewed: Finished, eBook.
I purchased this book myself.

GoodReads Synopsis: 
Heidi DuCane is a tough-as-nails publicist with a passion for success and her husband Tucker. While they’re polar opposites, what they do have in common is a fierce love and commitment to each other. But their relationship—in and out of the bedroom—will be put to the ultimate test.

Rock superstar Ransom Reed is every woman’s fantasy, including Heidi’s. When she meets Ransom, she shares a wild night with him where Heidi gets to play—and Tucker watches, and enjoys, the pleasure Ransom gives Heidi. Though Tucker was a willing participant, Heidi still can’t help reeling with guilt. There’s no doubt that she loves her husband. While Tucker is the perfect lover—generous, attentive and gentle—she needs much more. She needs the mind-blowing ecstasy Ransom offers.
Tucker isn’t blind to the fact that Heidi has unconventional needs which he can’t satisfy. He loves his wife and will do anything to please her The night he watched her and Ransom was so scorching hot that Tucker can’t stop thinking about it. He decides he wants to join Ransom in pleasing Heidi. But as Tucker and Heidi soon realize, it’s not just the sex that is enticing. Heidi felt something within her awaken, and she felt so deliciously sated and loved by both men. Tucker felt it too, and he finds it impossible not to want that feeling again.

Ransom and Tucker satisfy a need within Heidi. And now that she’s had them, she can never go back to the way things were before.
Oh, this book. As soon as I finished Taint, I knew that I had to read Tryst once it was available. Taint was a great story so I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into this one.  And it didn't disappoint.

Tryst took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. I was super excited at the prospect of Heidi and her husband experimenting with Ransom because I haven't read many threesome (or partners watching) scenarios in books and I couldn't wait to see how it was going to play out. That particular scene in the book was amazing although I always felt uncomfortable towards Tucker. There was just something about him that I didn't care for. Ransom, however, I always had a soft spot for. Maybe it was his bad boy rocker persona that attracted, who knows. 

As the story continued to unfold I found myself constantly confused. I didn't like what Heidi was doing and it made me uncomfortable for the sake of her marriage and her husband, but at the same time, I liked the idea of her being with Ransom. As they got closer and closer, my heart continued to break for each of the three characters and I couldn't decide who I felt more devoted to. I still felt off about Tucker throughout the whole story, but that didn't mean I couldn't feel bad for him. I just wanted him to suck it up and tell his wife exactly what he wanted from her.

I was really happy to see that Justice and his Oasis was pulled into this story. It fit really well and brought up some of the hottest scenes in the entire story. His playroom was definitely something I would enjoy witnessing in real life. 

Closer to the end of the book I found myself completely thrown for a loop. There was such an insane turn of events that I couldn't believe what I was reading. It was interesting, definitely, but I can't say that I was entirely sold on the ending. It worked in the way of not necessarily being a happily ever after (at least for the two characters I wanted to be together) and for giving the readers something a little unexpected, but heart still broke a little for how I wanted the story to end in my head.

Overall, a great, sexy read. If you've read Taint, you definitely need to dive into Tryst.

Review: The First Taste by Jessica Hawkins

The First Taste
Cover Source:
Title: The First Taste
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Version Reviewed: ARC, eBook
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

GoodReads Synopsis:
Andrew Beckwith has already devoted his life to one girl—and as far as he’s concerned, she’s all he needs. The rough-around-the-edges bad boy left his reckless ways behind six years ago when his daughter Bell was born. To the female population’s dismay, he’s unapologetically single. When Bell’s mother walked out on them years ago, he vowed never to let another woman close enough to hurt them again.
Amelia Van Ecken isn’t just another woman. She’s an independent, smart, and savvy businesswoman who doesn’t have time for sex, much less love. In the midst of a drawn-out, bitter divorce, all she wants is to bury herself in work. But when sharp-tongued Amelia and stubborn Andrew cross paths, sparks fly—and burn. Two things are obvious in an instant: they want each other, and they’re from different worlds. It’s the perfect formula for an off-the-charts one-night stand. After all, it’s not as if opposites ever attract.
Alright, so I was first introduced to Andrew Beckwith in the book Slip of The Tongue. That book completely ripped my heart out but Andrew played a very small role in the story. I was so insanely excited when Jessica Hawkins announced that she was giving him his own book.  Even with such a small role in the previous novel, he was easy to fall for. I mean, what's better than a badass, sexy man that happens to be great in the bedroom and is an awesome father to top it all off? Yeah, he was easy to fall for

In this story, we also get to learn a little more about another character that made an appearance in Slip of The Tongue, Amelia, who is the boss of Andrew's sister, Sadie.  I admit that I wasn't crazy about her before reading this book but it was so great to learn more about her character and begin to understand exactly why she has the personality that she does. She was a much more likeable character than I had originally given her credit for and it didn't take me long to fall in love with her as well.

The First Taste was an amazing book. It was a beautiful story of two people with nothing in common but their broken hearts and how they manage to find love and happiness in the most unlikely of places. I absolutely loved this book and I couldn't get enough of Andrew and Amelia.

Rating: 5 Stars.
